Alex, I couldn't be more excited if I tried. That female model looks amazing, I cannot wait.So, what are the best /silly and /flirts you guys can think of for Pandaren?

On a similar topic, what do you think the Pandaren "voice" will sound like? Asian-tinged accent? Something else?

Hopefully nothing TOO stereotypical for any of the above. However, given the fact that Blizz races tend to beat their ethnicities into our faces, I would have to say expect the worst and then be pleasantly surprised.

I'm expecting a lot of bear puns."You look so fine, I can bear-ly contain myself!""Wanna see the true meaning of Panda-monium?""Want something to sink your claws into?"Etc, etc.

Ha ha! I love that Bi-Polar one XD. The Captivity is pretty funny, too.

Agree, the model looks akin to the quality of the female tauren model, which IMO is an absolutely fantastic model the blizzard completely got right, way back in vanilla wow.Also, regarding the female pandaren, you have to figure that Samwise Didier had been sketching or rolling around ideas for what a female pandaren would look like, and likely for years - there is no way he is going to have anything but excellence in terms of all of the pandaren models.Can't think of a /silly or a /flirt, but in terms of the accent, we already have one to go on, namely that of Chen Stormstout from WC3. A plain old tastefully-done-as-possible Chinese-accented English just like Chen's should suffice for most pandaren NPC's. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjH7ts8FA6IIncidentally, Chen adopted the philosophy I had in college, which is "beer solves everything."

I'm sure we'll get more than a few food-based flirts and jokes."You're hotter than my gong-bao chicken."
The puke-breath and belch lines are both brewmaster rather than pandaren lines, so you can count probably those ones out.

@Joerendous - Not sure why you were down voted. That was a perfectly acceptable Jack Black joke. I'm hoping since Blizzard has already had a business relationship (Blizzcon 2010) with Jack Black he will voice the Pandaren male. (I know he wont but how awesome would that be?)

I hope my Panda sounds like Russell Peters' asian accent. "Be a man!"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qtrAMK7_Qk&feature=related

@johnthediver: Ugh, I hope not (and I even LOVE Kung Fu Panda and would be more than happy for a few in-game references). I would like a voice that's a little less jarring every time I click a Pandaren male.

@Kar On E: I'm going to cross my fingers for Panda-monium. My sister would giggle at that for hours XD.

As long as there's a Sifl and Olly reference *somewhere* I'll be happy. ;)

I expect the voice for the males to be deep and rumbly, maybe with a slight asian flair to it. I've always had this sound in my head for Bearn, from The Hobbit, and I guess I imagine the pandaren to be the same. Sort of Tauren-ish.
