So anyways, girl, I'm a big shot here in Azeroth. Back when I was 15 I had both the Alliance and Horde clamoring for me. I didn't let it inflate my ego though.

What do you do?

I'm a bear that--wait for it--turns into a bear. Pretty sweet, huh?

Whatevs.

at least they can't be death knights.. if they crowbar'd that in there, I'd be pissed.


They will be able to become DK two expansions from now when Metzen decides after redeeming Illidan, that Arthas needs to come back.

Blizz says they don't do cenarion magic.

They don't get to do cenarion magic.

All your exercises in trying to find/create lore loopholes is futile and said otherwise.

I think every race doesn't have to be able to be every class, and laziness has nothing to do with it.

Just my two cents.


Laziness has something to do with it when it's druids because they'd have to make aditional models for the forms, and they don't want to do that. Well, maybe not 'laziness' but 'not enough time/resources.' Apparently they cut down many things in Cata due to not enough time or resources to meet an artificial deadline that nobody set up.

Anyway I like your panda cat form Shimoko. I think it was well done and very cute.

why thankyou! maybe blizz should just hire me!! but i think they dont like aussies.. (the dreaded latency curse).... obviously they are just jealous!

There are enough Druid races in the game as is. Even if there aren't any real lore barriers we've already got two races on each faction capable of being a Druid which is more than enough.

i think it is more logical to replace panda rouges with panda druids... i dont think a panda should be capable of stealthing around

MoP is heavily based on Asian society, do ninjas ring any bells? Plus, all societies have had some form of covert-op/assassin/intel-gathering/thieving/subtle persons sometime in their history; I don't see a reason why that would change just because it's a race of panda-like beings.

Though it may make sense for them to be druids, it is possible that they just never conceptualized druidism. It is implied by their lore that the Pandaren broke off relations with the Night Elves centuries before the first druid (Malfurion) began learning it. Also, where shamanism is a religion based around working with, respecting and worshipping spirits, druidism is a spirituality based around nature as a whole; the two are completely different belief systems. The Pandaren would not likely have gotten one from the other, they're in two completely different leagues.

The final fact is, Pandaren can't be druids for one very simple reason: The developers don't want them to be. This might change later, in a patch or expansion; but for now, the Pandaren are 100% unable to be druids.

and as a panda, well is an animal, and is really more a 'part of nature' than many humans, i dont see many flaws in my logic...

Humans are animals too and just as much a part of nature as anything else.

actually i believe most humans are not as involved with nature as many animals... we live in houses and drive cars... the exceptions may be hermits, who actually live in nature... humans have distanced ourselves from nature..

Don't get me wrong, druids are, by far, my favorite class in the game; but Pandaren druids don't make any sense to me based on what has been written in their lore, and I have yet to hear a compelling enough reason for it beyond 'but I want it and it'd be cool/funny'.
