MMO-Champion - World of Warcraft 5.0 - Panda Mania!
World of Warcraft 5.0 - Panda Mania!
In the latest Patch 4.1 PTR Build, two new halloween masks textures have been added to the game files:


  • Helm_MaskHalloween_PaF.blp
  • Helm_MaskHalloween_PaM.blp

They seem to be early-alpha texture but according to what happened with the datamining/leak of the Cataclysm races 2 years ago, it looks like Pandarens will be the race of the next expansion! The name of texture for any piece of headset always ends with the first 2 character of the name of the race (Pa) and the gender (M/F), according to how the textures look it's really easy to conclude what the new race is.


More datamining reveals that the expansion is apparently named Panda Mania! and also uncovered a possible trailer ....

    Only one?! Don't they normally do three. Or is this Bibi's own little idea? I haven't read any of the comments here, but as soon as I saw the news post I remembered what date it is today. I assume - and it's just a wild guess here - but I assume that the first few responses were... somewhat emotional? Let me check after I post this.

    Going in blind!

    the question is, is it Bibis Joke, or Blizzard joke?
    i guess this is Bibis joke, when you consider the trailer (not blizzard work), the masks that somewhat looks familiar, and the name of the expansion.
    but hey, i didnt even consider it was a joke before i saw comments, woo!

    i guess Blizzard havent released their joke yet.

    I would have fell for it, but the masks are horribly done and gave it away almost instantly, they don't look like a mask.

    When you did the mask thing it was kinda believable, but the title of the expansion just blew it up.

    Nice try...come on.. why rub it in the pandafan's faces?

    ''Moar Dots '' was more than chuckle worthy though
