First Levels Of A World Of Warcraft Panda Monk

This morning I shared with you the creation of Susan, my first female Pandaren Monk in the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria beta test. Unfortunately, she died.

But don't fret: she can and has been replaced with Stacy, a much better Pandaren Monk. Join Stacy and I as we roll our way through the Monk starting experience, learning, loving and running screaming from primates.

The experience hasn't changed much since I first played the class at BlizzCon 2011. Aside from the increased levels of oestrogen (pandas have oestrogen, right?) and some incredibly joyous pigtails, the core difference is that the light chi/dark chi mechanic shown at the convention has been replaced with a single chi bar, making the class play a bit more like a Rogue.

I preferred it the other way, but I'm an MMO veteran. From the looks of things, I'm not World of Warcraft's primary demographic anymore. Fortunately, I'm a Red Panda fan, so I'll survive.


    Blizzard dumbing game mechanics down??? I don't believe it!!

      They said that complexity for complexities sake was what it felt like. This way feels a bit more fluid.. to me anyway



        Google image search 'red panda'. They look like raccoons.
