So who's all rolling a Kung-Fu Panda? Methinks I'll be the only non monk in the game come launch lol.

I want to roll a Pandaren, but I'm actually making my monk a blood elf. My Pandaren will probably end up being a warrior named Generaltso.

I would, but like you said, everyone is going to do it. Prolly make my shaman a panda, and roll a Draenei male monk instead.

Probably.The question is how many will reach 90.Unlike DKs where level 80 was a skip away, these monks will have 90 levels ahead of them.The first 60 will be done in weekend one most likely, but then you'll hit Outlands... and the monks will start dropping off like flies.I -plan- to get one to 90 and hope to make it a tanking main. But that's speaking from before the starting gate.

Honestly you can get through outlands in a matter of hours especially as tank (what with all the xp bonuses from heirlooms and guilds).

my pandaren will be an enhancement shaman, meself.something awesome about a huge drunken bear with two elemental-force wreathed hammers tearing it up that's very attractive to me.

@Darky: If it weren't for the Dungeon Finder, I'd forsee a repeat of Wrath launch, with Ramparts groups comprised of all monks. Though unlike the DK situation, they'd actually be in all the proper roles, including the healer. And they'd actually know what they were doing by then for the most part.

I'll make a monk, not sure if it'll be pandaran, but probably so I can see their starting area.IF, and its a big IF, bliz manage to pull of melee healer role well, I may stick around. If not, its bye bye again. But I wont resub until MoP comes out. 4.3 holds no interest for me whatsoever.

What's kind of funny is "everyone will be doing it" so maybe everyone avoids it and there are just a few! Who am I kidding I have to make a ninja panda seconds after release :)

I'm going to roll a Monk, but she likely won't be a Pandaren (although I'll have to see what the females end up looking like - maybe I'll change my mind) - I'm thinking dwarf or draenei, although maybe night elf, since I don't have any nelfs characters yet (my shaman is a dwarf, my spriest is a worgen, and my paladin is a draenei).

@KylenneRolling through ramps with 5 58-60 DKs was fun times! The first few weeks of wrath were epic for DKs. I was hoping the monk would be a hero class, not looking forward to 1-55 yet again.
10-28-2011 @ 2:52PM
Personally, I'm thinking of rolling a Pandaren Warrior because that's the only class I haven't really leveled yet, and a gnome monk because gnomes are statistically proven to be the most awesome race.
10-28-2011 @ 2:54PM
@Caylynn I'm thinking Draenei just because they can't be Rogues or Druids and are stuck in either cloth or mail/plate. Sure, hunters and shaman are in leather until 40 but that doesn't really count, does it? ;)Admittedly, I'm also a sucker for a cute female Draenei.

Don't forget too that one of the planned racials makes rested exp longer/better to help that leveling to 90 issue.
10-28-2011 @ 3:10PM
If they increase character slots...Then I will make a Pandaren Monk and also a Gnome Monk.Because you can never have too many Gnomes. ^^
10-28-2011 @ 4:42PM
The thought of having a Gnome or a Dwarf monk brings a smile to my face. But my first monk has to be a Panda.
10-28-2011 @ 4:05PM
I signed up for the annual pass so I'll be doing all of my testing during the beta. So once launch comes I'll have played both a pandaren and a monk and as such won't feel the need to do that as soon as I log on. I'll probably delete my pally to make room for the monk whose race is still to be determined (I already have 2 85 pallies.... probably won't get a 3rd)
10-28-2011 @ 4:12PM
The Monk will probably be a Dwarf, if I make a Pandaren it'll be a Rogue called Embarassment.Because if you let a Pandaren sneak up on you, it's exactly what you deserve to die from.
10-28-2011 @ 4:23PM
My Panda will be a Shaman.My Monk will be a Gnome, because a Gnome Monk sounds *awesome*.
10-28-2011 @ 5:11PM
I am beyond excited....for my Horde-Panda Shaman. I'll probably try monk healing, but as I have exactly zero melee alts on any server I don't expect it to stick. Would love it if they surprised me, though.
