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 ....

    You know what's hilarious? People are like "This april fools sucks! Way too obvious!". You know, last time I checked, there hasn't bee ONE blizzard april fools that could be marked as anything NEAR legit. People just be mad because Blizz now shows to you guys what they think of pandaren. Jokes on you.

    What would happen is 600k people would believe them so hard, that when it's announced as april fools, everyone rages and stops paying because nerds rage way too hard. That doesn't sound like making money.

    Boub, I am now 100% convinced that you have inside sources at Blizzard...Exactly 5 months and 1 day after April Fools the REAL Panda Monium begins. I withdraw my million-dollar bet that this would never happen.

    A dry croissant is clearly a knockoff. Real croissants are sooo soft, and moist, and you know what? I'm gonna stop right there because this is going in the wrong direction.

    <3 croissants. (not the mass produced, found'em in a pack that was made a month ago kind)
