    even though Ive bought a yearly pass, I am still undecided if i will even buy the expansion. Its nice to see all these things they are adding but they seem to miss all the details of things already in-game - like why shoulder armor doesnt even sit right on most races, why my character is half hidden inside my mounts because its not positioned properly. small things like that add up. I like all the chinese themed stuff but if im really honest, im getting a little bored with it - and the beta isnt even out yet! I hope they have some good selling points for th expansion because im really on the shelf still about buying it.

    They mentioned at blizzcon 2011 that there would be 4 clans around the Pandas. (5 dragons in the video maybe one is just somesort of NPC god who knows) I´m not sure if you can choose a clan as a Panda or a monk, but whatever. This is just a speculation of mine, maybe these dragons are the colours that you get depending on what clan you choose. If so I´m going "Black ox of the North" because that black dragon looks badass!

    Also, people still don't appear to know what a "skin" is."Reskin" would mean Mogu were just draenei with a different, you know, skin, i.e. texture, but the exact same mesh, i.e. shapes. Since shapes were almost completely redone, it's not a reskin, it's a re-model. Meaning all that's common between a Mogu and a Draenei is an animation skeleton - and that was preserved, because those take an donkey-load of time to make, even for a specialist.So stop crying about reskins when you get completely new models only rigged to old animation skeletons.

    pandaren mounts seem to be inspired from siamese fighting fish. the different colors on that video are almost identical some of the color variants of the fish.

    When I saw Mogu on the Pandaria Site, they looked a little bit silly, but with the right armor and color they look like evil villain badasses.Gotta be hard to pick a color for my Cloud Serpent!

    So who can get these mounts? Only pandas? Or can everyone have one if they do the dailies?

    Did anyone else think "omg its Link with his fishmask" when they saw the Jinyu?
  1. Maleren's Avatar
    Very interesting video. Thanks for uploading that. It will be interesting to get in there as an alliance toon and see it again.

    As others have said as well, this is wrong. I got all of them, you can buy it after getting your first one.

    And that last cloud serpent was amazing! I would love to get that.

    Damn, another NPC Model I'd rather have as a Playable Race! Can I trade in my Panda for a badass, killer koi murloc on steroids?

    I wonder if it's a reference or just a coincidence.

    I don't get it, why would smoke that always looked kinda like irl smoke suddenly look like some artistic china smoke just because a dragon is making it? It doesn't really fit mixing styles like that in the same game.

    Also, people still don't appear to know what the difference between "completely redone" and "added a few polys" is. This is lazy, hastily done work, on a severely limited budget allotted for the expansion team this go around. EVERY expansion team is given a smaller budget than the last. Hope you guys enjoy running out of a content quicker than Cata, and all the "new" models, which just so happen to look like another model, except with a 10poly necklace, or horn, or gills.

    Like another poster said "Yaunka? that's sure as hell close to Taunka"

    No, it's not "added a few polys in", because if it was, they'd still have a draenei face and body... except for a few polygons. That is not a draenei face, that is not a draenei body. It's just rigged to a draenei skeleton. That. Is. All.

    Because they're not Yaunka. They're Yaungols. It's an error in the OP.
