Considering a race change to a pandaren...

Warrior
More specifically, a female pandaren. I'd like to ask you guys for some input.

1) Has anyone tried out a pandaren warrior? How does it feel overall in terms of looks and animations? This is honestly the most important thing for me, since it has a huge impact on what I find "fun". I didn't give a squat about racials when I rolled a gnome warrior, and my stance hasn't changed. That being said...

2) Do you think the pandaren racials can be useful for a warrior? I've kind of grown accustomed to having that extra root break in PvP, though PvE is a whole 'nother story. The 4 second incapacitate seems interesting, but with the way we spread deep wounds, wouldn't it just break instantly outside of using it on a focus target?
They have great animations for everything.

And the incapcitate will be useful on off targets IE focus targets.

Also they have the best pve racial in the game
yes.
Do it, less gnomes the better. Oh wait, but what will the Undeads eat then?

That, and sadly, more specifically, they have the BEST animations of all other races.

Intricate movements, very cool and stylish.

At the barber, you can change between two general pandaren skins, which is great for variety, if it strikes you (long tail, stub tail).

The passive racial is useful for a warrior between fights, less fall damage, better chance of seeing your way through an encounter or skirmish.
Just look and me and try to stop your money flying out of your wallet to pay for a race change.
No.

As I've been leveling this Warrior.. I can tell you a few things! :]

Panda (Female) animations are absolutely flawless and gorgeous.. It's SO fluid, and Fem-Panads wear Plate Mail VERY well. It looks extremely good on them.

Panda's racials on the other hand.. They're good for both PVE and PVP. PVP = Incapacitate. It has its uses, but IMO is not as good as the Human's PVP racial. However! Epicurean makes up for this!! Double the food buff for "Well Fed" Effects.
Yeah we're pretty much the greatest race ever.

Haven't seen the female animations, but my animations are quite wonderful.

Oh yeah, the animations are awesome. I made a fempanda mage, and I LOVE the animation.
Panda is pretty awesome I gotta admit. I race changed on Beta to check them out and really like the big ole goofball. So I instantly changed on live. Some armor looks pretty bad but some looks really awesome, much better than the huge helmet stretch of the Worgen.

Animations and the general "character" of the race is awesome. The old races are really showing their age. I love the sword and board animation and the 2h animation is great.

Have not really put the Incapacitate to the test yet, not really a factor for me.

The rest bonus is noticeable. Will be nice while leveling.

If you want to test out the armors, wowhead has had the panda models in their viewer for a while. take a look. Males, despite the size actually have sorta scaled down shoulders, and helms can look pretty fat. Also quick note, is they are a big race, they squash a lot of Alliance mounts.

The missing Panda racial should have been +5% belt stats because it is a focal point for sure on the male. =P

Overall though I love the big guy already. They have so much character it throws all the negatives out the window. Good luck
Panda females have good animations for arms and fury. Males are ok for arms but I wasn't a fan of their fury animations.

Most likely changing to a female panda for the food racial sometime soon.
I went fury just because the female panda animation is just so amazing with it. I'm not a PvPer and I don't really care about racials so I won't comment on those, but for over-all look I don't regret spending the $25 at all.
If you care about min/maxing, go panda.
No, keep the Gnomish warrior tradition alive! Alas, fempandas DO have amazing animations. Just prepare to look like a clone.

This coming from a Blood Elf. I'd say, "The Horde called, they want their faction back." But the damage has already been done. Like the crater where Theramore used to stand. Then doing it from the Horde perspective, the Blood elf you talk to is so smug about it.

It makes me want to mortal strike him. Mortal Strike him in the ball bag.
