Pandaren monk brewmaster. The appeal would be really stylized martial arts animations, like the companion pet has. He uses unarmed combat with some simple ways to itemize fist like weapons with moves like "crane kick" and other kung fu arch types.This would be the first neutral hero class. Horde based Pandaren would have red energy graphics for their spells and attacks, the red being clearly visible from afar. Alliance Pandaren would have a blue colored energy. Their mount would be ornate jade armored giant Pekingese dogs or some other Asian "lion" breed like a shitsu, or possibly an Asian style lion in general. Flying mounts would be Asian dragons. If you don't recognize that anthropomorphic Pandas rock, there's a rabbit named Usagi Yojimbo who would like to discuss your philosophies and their roots, in depth.

intrestingly enough on the wow model viewer there are 2 chinese dragons one made of jade and one normal. they are flying mounts. maybe your on to something!I absolutely love the idea of pandaren being a playable race! I do not however believe that they would make it a new class, for both sides to play. Monk would be the class pandaren would be a race. An Asian theme would be EPIC i mean in cataclysm beta goblins have Chinese take out in the house (seriously!) Where do you think the got that from! I certainly never saw any Chinese items. Also with the release of cataclysm there adding fortune cookies as a cooking recipe along with other Asian themed cooking recipes. I think they are eventually going to allow the pandaren as a playable race but I believe they will introduce Monk as a class first. Once Monk is a class then Pandaren will be the next x-pac being horde ofcorse because the pandaren, lore wise do not like alliance. Also they would be a new class that could also be druids. Aliance would see another class on their side be able to be druids, maybe... I dono, maybe humans could be druids (considering worgen druids maybe they could teach the humans) Im throwing my vote tho with pandarans as a playable race and monk as a class!

@Persephanie - Those Chinese dragons are unique for the Chinese. They have several pets/mount that are unavailable to us here in the West.
