    Any. Just look at various animation on youtube and make your choice. That's the only right answer.

    Night elf.
    Extra dodge is quite useful when you are tanking, and for anything open world, i'd really miss shadow meld playing anything else.

    Play blood elf on horde because of the AOE silence for dungeons but on alliance i would play pandaren any day

    Play what you like the look of.

    I like Humans for aesthetics, but I also like the Rep Bonus and EMFH.

    Unless you plan to play for a World First pushing Mythic Guild, it really does not matter.

    I love playing female panda. They have nice animations and are fitting to the class theme. The racial is nice as well, especially now with the buffed feasts.
    Monk/Main,Druid/Alt, Logs. Meine Gilde rekrutiert. Bei Interesse kontaktiert mich hier, unsere Offiziere in Game oder bewerbt euch direkt auf unserer Website.

    truth be told, if you're asking that question, you can safely pick whatever you think looks nice, educated players already know the answer, and for everybody else that little bonus which comes with any specific race wont make a difference

    All's I'm saying is that I made a Gnome monk because I thought it would be funny but it wasn't, it's just annoying.

    Nelf is best Alliance race. Don't underestimate the utility and general entertainment value of a free stealth CD.

    pandaren.
    monks (WW) scale best with main stat. feasts provide main stat. it's almost like having a second flask.

    Best race for a monk is Tibetan. Seriously though, the best race in-game to play as a monk would be pandaren since they go paw in paw.
    when all else fails, read the STICKIES.

    There is only one answer: Pandaren. Playing other race than Pandaren isn't right.

    Pretty much my choice and still my favorite race/gender combo in the game. Best animations too IMO.

    Male pandaren run hideously with most armor models. The chest pieces look like stretched out t-shirts. They also have that short panda tail which looks like half a turd sticking out your pants, whereas at least female pandaren get a red panda long option.

    Pandaren also have trouble properly showcasing armor that was meant to show skin and muscle -- they simply do not look athletic.

    Humans have amazing racials. You don't understand how useful a stunbreak can be. On top of the rep gains from being human making rep grinds absurdly easy.

    Night elf shadowmeld is nice, but honestly you can just chi torpedo>flying serpent kick and rid yourself of most mobs that way.

    Draenei is also really nice because monks have shit self healing, and a free 20% health heal every 3 minutes is not a bad racial to have, ESPECIALLY as a tank when you pull a large pack.

    Male Pandas look amazing in some helms designed for them though - particularly the Red Crane and Shado-Pan helms. Granted, fem Pandas look great in those too, but they look weird/too small on other races. Arguebly, T21 looks best on Pandas as well, if you're planning to raid on this Monk.
