"Inner peace: double rested XP"seems like they want players to catch up to max fast for new pandaren players

Makes sense, though. If the level cap is now 90, there's a lot of territory for a new toon to cover before it gets to the end. That's going to be a long slog, regardless.That said, you'd think they'd find a way to grant that buff some other way, especially since that sort of racial ability becomes utterly pointless at max level. Not that some toons don't have useless racials (for example, bonuses to professions you didn't take), but this one has built-in obsolescence.

Which makes full heirlooms interesting. It'll be interesting to see Pandaran in the different heirlooms. Monks use cloth, so we'll see some Dreadmist.

Well leveling 1 to 90 isn't necessarily going to be such a horrible slog. 1-70 is already pretty dang fast, and they're reducing 70-80 xp in 4.3. I'm willing to bet they'll lower xp required or speed up leveling 80-85 once Pandaria's out.

Shouldn't be any issue with leveling as it's stupidly fast. IMO the xp per level should increase by 30% minimum.

"...but this one has built-in obsolescence."Same with the profession bonuses. Even if you do take the profession, the bonus becomes obsolete once you hit 525.

Monks are using Leather. agility leather for DPS and tanking, spell leather for healing.

Double XP racial will be useful for levels 1-90, which is a much more useful racial than mana bonus for a warrior, or weapon bonus for a class that can't use that particular weapon.

It seems like this could mean one of two things:* When rested, you get 3X the experience instead of 2X; or* The rested state lasts twice as long, but only grants the standard 2X.Any clue as to which?

@ Duco,this is from blizz's site for the Pandaren:Inner Peace: Your rested experience bonus lasts twice as long.

So it sounds like, fully rested for a pandaren will be 3 levels (although it gets bumped by non kill xp) instead of the 1.5 it currently is IIRC for everybody else. Hopefully that means you gain rested twice as fast as well, or its really not THAT much of a bonus since youd have to be logged for twice as long to max it out.
