Pandaren Special! Character Creation and Emotes!
A lot of people are interested in the pandarens, here's a special news just for the panda lovers out there.

  • Character creation is definitely a work in progress, and so far only the females have the red panda + tail variation. We'll track any update in future patches.
  • Emotes are also in progress, the female is still missing a lot of them but it's perfectly normal in early stages of the beta. No dance yet.

You should definitely check the emotes video at least, the art work on Pandaren animations is pretty impressive and look like they will be a refreshing change.

    The male panda reminds me of a mix between John Goodman and Po

    The facial movements are getting remarkable. Classic models got nothing on these.

    Ahaha the male Pandaren rude reminds me of Undertaker. I'm just blown away at the facial animations of these characters though. Makes me want updated models so bad now.

    Having access to the beta - I dislike most female animations, from how they stand (I just want to poke them with my finger so they fall backwards) to how they run (even fatter than a female dwarf bum makes them walk extremely clunkily) to how they land after a jump (looks to me like they want to jump up right after and start flying). Male pandaren seem to me alot more authentic and if I'd ever decide to play a male I'd go for that one. Though of course it's just my personal taste, so no need to flame me for it. :P The old models will slowly but surely get upgraded, as they said, first dwarves, then humans and orcs, then probably gnomes/night elves + trolls/tauren/undead, and last blood elves and draenei. Imo orcs and trolls need one pretty badly, even if it's just a few more faces being available to choose from. We'll see what they come up with. Shame they don't think that Worgen need an upgrade. They're absolutely horrible and monotone for a rather new race.

    Move on. We won't miss you.

    /sleep is by far the best one... But watching these makes me really wish Blizzard would hurry up and update player models

    The male animations though are top notch awesome. The sitting one is great, the reading one is fantastic. They weren't kidding when they said the number of bones in the faces would be over 100.

    All I want is a /chicken that mimicks Gob's chicken from Arrested Development, and the female version to be Lindsey's. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?

    This is extremely unfair. They look so good, even better than goblin and Worgen. But my Tauren still looks like he's from n64.

    These look positively amazing. The female is so cute I might explode! I'm going to have to make an army of female pandaren! I'm soooo excited ;w;

    I love the male Panderan /rude. The female Panderan emotes are also pretty cool... my dorfadin is crying (badly) into her extremely blocky hands.

    Holy crap, those are amazing!

    They really outdone themselves with these...they're amazing! I dare say a lot of NEW games don't have this much facial movement on characters. LOVE them, making at least 3 chars female Pandaren on release.

    Ugh, I was really, really hoping the facial options wouldn't be just markings.Need structure changes too! I want to be able to be snarly OR bubbly, not just forced into bubbly.
