What do you guys think?
Personally, I am warming up to the idea of playable pandas. I mean, yes it all sounds very Kung Fu Panda, but we have fighting cows and wolves too, so why not? The trailer looks promising, Pandaria with its oriental feel and pagodes looks amazing. I also like the fact that the player will be able to pick Horde or Alliance after the introductory quest chain since the Pandaren aren’t racially affiliated with any faction. Blizz, go do this for other races too! Bring goblins to the Alliance!
Pandaren will be able to be hunters. So far, we don’t know what the starter pet for a Pandaren hunter will be. (A baby panda maybe? I am definitely rooting for a panda bear model as a hunter pet...!)
Here are some Pandaria screenshots for a taster of what's to come:
News on the new talent/spec trees has been released, including a sneak peak on new hunter abilites. More news on that in an upcoming post!
Update: The Pandaren starter's pet is a dragon turtle!
