The pandaren lived alongside the night elves until the Highborne started to abuse the Well of Eternity; the night elves were always messing with magic, though.A good way to think of pandaren mages (and even orc mages) is that it's another method of connecting with the four primary elements. The pandaren are all about balance, and when they saw the night elves becoming unbalance, they probably took that as their cue to get outta Dodge.I've posted this a couple times already, but Blizzard took a lot of inspiration from feng shui (Chinese geomancy), which ties strongly into pandaren shaman. Feng shui shares a lot of concepts with Taoism and other Chinese religions and philosphies. The main things being a balance of light and dark, and balance of the elements.So when you see a pandaren mage, what you're seeing is sort of a Taoist-style mystic, dealing with the same four elements as pandaren shaman (geomancers). Pandaren priests balance light and shadow, just like pandaren monks.
