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 ....

    I agree, todays jokes aren't believable or even funny. It would be funny if blizzard actually announced a real dungeon today so people did not believe them. What has happened to peoples sense of humor? :-(

    April fools jokes will never be that good as they will always be expected.

    I saw 5.0 and panda faces as i was scrolling down and i was like "OMG", then i looked at it for a half a second and remembered what day it was. I think you could have taken this idea a little furthur and made it less obvious and it would have been hilarious.

    All I ask is why not? What a perfect time to have something they are going to do on a day thats filled with lies.

    Good shop work on the mask. They do look like what an Alpha model of Pandaren would/should look like.

    However, I'm going to ROFLcopter all over the internet if we do get Pandaren in the next expansion by some strange fate of the Blizzard gods. XD

    Haha that seagull was completely full of awesome. Hey, it's obvious, but aren't all wow-related april's fools? I mean Blizzard's 'class changes' got tons of great feedback despite being the appifany of obvious.
