World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria: Pandaren & Monk Preview!

Average: 3.4 (9 votes)

World of Warcarft's newest expansion Mists of Pandaria was announced at Blizzcon 2011 and so I'd like to give you all a preview of the newest race, Pandaren, and class, Monk. "Unleash the Secrets of a Lost Continent Shrouded in fog since the world was sundered more than ten thousand years ago, the ancient realm of Pandaria has remained unspoiled by war. Its lush forests and cloud-ringed mountains are home to a complex ecosystem of indigenous races and exotic creatures. It is the homeland of the enigmatic Pandaren, a race that celebrates life to the fullest even while under siege by an ancient menace."

"The new continent reveals itself to a broken world just as the Alliance and Horde are spiraling ever closer to a war that will consume all of Azeroth. Will the mists of Pandaria part to reveal the world's salvation? Or will the battle to control this rich and breathtaking new land push the two mighty factions over the brink of war and into total annihilation? The answers await within Pandaria's mysterious shores!" - Blizzard Please enjoy this World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria: Pandaren & Monk Preview! and if you have any questions or feedback, feel free to post them below in the comment section or on our forums.

    Alright everyone, here it is. The next race we'll be able to play is the Pandaren. They are one of the natives of Pandaria and will be joining up with Alliance and Horde alike.

    Pandaren Racials are pretty cool as well with Epicurean increasing the stat benefits of food by 100%. Gourmand gives an increased Cooking skill of 15%. Inner Peace gives the player twice as long for the rested experience bonus. Bouncy makes it so you take 50% less falling damage. And finally, Quaking Palm that uses an enemy's pressure point to put it to sleep for 3 seconds.

  • Pandaren can be hunters, mages priests, rogues, shamans, warriors, and the new class, monk.
  • The Monk is an awesome fighter that is a master of bare-handed combat who only chooses to draw their weapon for devastating finishing moves. Players who choose to play a monk will be able to easily play every role; dps, tank, and even of course, healing.
  • Monks can use Cloth and Leather armor, Fist Weapons, One-Handed Axes, One-Handed Maces, One-Handed Swords, Polearms, and Staves.
  • Some sample abilities are "Spinning Crane Kick" that deals physical damage every second all enemies within 8 yards as well as reduce their movement speed by 30% for 6 seconds. "Roll" which acts similar to charge. "Statue of the Jade Serpent" that heals nearby friendly players within 20 yards when you do damage. You can have up to 3 Jade Dragon Statues active at a time. Which actually looks like a typo that say serpent.
  • The Monk Brewmaster is like a drunken tank who can absorb incredible amounts of punishment or a drunk at a bar who you can beat the hell out of and they keep coming back for more.
  • The Monk Mistweaver is like a disc priest with better damage.
  • Finally, the Monk Windwalker which is a melee DPS that has some pretty awesome martial arts moves that look sick in a rotation on a mob.
  • All races besides Worgen and Goblins can play a monk.
  • Kinda like druids, monks will benefit from leather armor with agility or intellect, depending on their build, and will depend on Chi which is like energy for moves such as Jab and Roll. Jab will generate either Light or Dark Force, which can be expended to perform other moves.
  • It all sounds very nice but things can change a lot before the release of Mists of Pandaria. Let me know what you think in the comments.
