I love the concept of doing the roll. Then I imagine a tauren doing it and I just can't stop giggling.

I believe roll is panda-specific. But they'll have to make animations anyways for it, for costumes and such. I still remember how the Draenei stealth was broken for awhile since you don't see it very often.

Nope they are making a tonne of animations for the other races just for monks :D.

How could it be pandaren specific? GC says right there, "We decided we needed something similar for the monk, so we came up with Roll." Almost every race, except goblins and worgen, can be monks. They wouldn't make a class move that only one race out of eleven can use.

Not Panda specific. At Blizzcon they even said they were looking forward to seeing some players on live try out Tauren rolling.I'm on the fence - Panda, Tauren, Panda, Tauren, Panda, Tauren, Panda, Tauren, Panda, Tauren, Panda, Tauren... Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!Chances are Panda will win as 3 of my tanks already are Tauren... :)But I could race change the warrior to Panda... and then its back to Tauren monk...ack!

I suspect this is one of the reasons for all the skeletal restructuring of the older races - they're going to have to be able to support all these new monk animations. (I'd also guess that the reason there are no Goblin/Worgen monks is because they can't rationalize re-structuring/re-animating them as needed given how much more detail they already have.)

Draenei stealth? Did I miss something?
Mmm... beef rolls.

Easy choice - Tauren Monk. Not sure what my Pandaren will be though. Maybe a hunter - I don't have one off those yet.
