    I voted Forsaken, I'm leaning that way... but I really don't know at this point.
    Imo I find it hard for any other race besides Pandaren to be a monk, but when I played the beta I did see an undead monk that was in our dungeon group. and the animations of the undead monk I would say are the best out of the other races besides the Pandaren. Belfs and gnomes have worst monk animations imo. The Undead monks are actually pretty cool. However I'm going Pandaren

    I used the free random faction and race changes on the Beta a lot just to see all races in action, and after that my choice for female Pandaren was settled. The only thing that I could stand apart from it animation wise on Horde is Female Troll. Every other race looked a bit off for my personal taste at least (Spinning Crane Kick usually being the "best" indicator, some races are hilariously wobbling up and down in the air while spinning on the spot).
    If I were to roll Alliance, it would possibly be Dwarf or Gnome.
    Still not getting any younger!

    Pandaren. Quite possibly the only class I'll make Pandaren, it just seems to fit.

    Not sure, yet.
    On the alliance side, I would go Draenei.
    On the horde side, I would go Tauren.
    Decisions, decisions...

    Starting as a female Orc as the racial is great for leveling and the class itself is small, which is a problem I found on beta with my Tauren monk where I would go up to quest givers and I couldn't target them properly because a lot of the Panda NPCs are small.

    I will be changing to Pandaren at 90.

    Say it isn't true. I'll be making a gnome healing monk for the 5% int bonus (and 5% mana).

    UD at lvl 1, then RAF to 80, quest to 85. Sleep while my Race change goes through for Panda. 85-90 as Panda Monk

    Probably Forsaken. I mean, having your heavily armored ass beaten by knuckles must be embarassing enough. Having it beaten by ROTTING knuckles? Priceless!
    If you add me on Steam, Skype or whatever program/client I share my info for, please write something to identify you in the "Dude/gal wants to join your club"-message. Just so I know that an actual human is on the other end :P

    Having trouble deciding between human, draenei, and dwarf... hard to decide

    Doing blood elf female. Not sure how the animations will look, but I hope they're not too bad.

  14. #54
    Dwarf ofc.

    I voted Forsaken. I like the idea of a Forsaken monk. I might have to race change my mage or something to Pandaren.

    Pandaren Monk, played one on the beta and liked it.

    Forsaken! I will never ever roll a pandaren, much like i will never roll a goblin/worgen

    Alliance: night elf female
    Horde: troll female

    Have experimented with the model viewer and have decided these models are the the most glitch-free and best looking.

    Female pandaren have issue with their shoulders. Just like worgen females, pandaren females like to stick their arms through the shoulders during moves.
