I won't truly be *excited* for the Pandaren until I see all of their combat animations. And I mean *ALL OF THEM*. Their spell-casting, melee specials for other classes, and EVERYTHING ELSE. There is no way I'll be able to decide if I will truly want to *play* one until then.As for monk--again, I'll have to see all of the animations for *all the other races* until I can be actually excited.This isn't to say I'm not excited for Pandaren and Monks--but I just don't want to have high hopes, find I dislike the animations, and then have all of that be a big let-down. I'm containing my excitement for greater enjoyment later, if that makes sense.For now, what I *am* excited about are first the Talent changes, and second the pet battle system. The talent system seems largely in place, and we have hard-set examples of what we can actually expect for *all* the trees to look like, and that's huge. It means they're really serious about it and that we can expect this sort of thing at launch, if not before then (like we had in Wrath, Pre-Cata, to mess around with stuff and test balance and such).I have so much hope for this new Talent system. While I am sad some abilities won't be able to be used together anymore (bye bye Blast Wave *and* Dragon's Breath) I do look forward to things like the 3-minute mage being a returning possibility, and druids possibly seeing some love.I would be more for the pet combat, if they had examples and such ready for us, but this seems really like one of those "path of the titan" or "dance studio deals", so I'll be excited only when I can see it in-game. As for what pet I'll use? Wisp army. Three wisps. All wisps. Did I mention I like wisp pets? Because I like wisps. *A LOT*. (I'm sorry cockroach, but you have yet the ability to blow up Archimonde for me to deam you worthy of combat pet status.)
