It's easily a Pandaren. It's literally their races main class.

Did someone say they like undead?

You could just roll a panda on a server you don't care about and make your "true" monk where you want it to be if you just want to see new stuff, which is only for the first 10-12 levels or so.

You regret having double rested, and double food buff? Man, you're bad.

His complaint is about aesthetics which he has to look at 100% of the time and your defense is double rested XP that is useful for the 3 days that you aren't level capped (which if you level one now won't even accumulate much if any rested XP) and an extended food buff?

extended food buff


All of your other arguments are valid, but the food buff is not double duration, but double effect. I get 600 agility from my food vs 300 agility a non-Pandaren will receive.

To the OP: whichever race you are most comfortable looking at. In the long run, racials really mean diddly and squat (though this can be argued for high high level PvP).

Thats why I use savory delights and go pirate or ninja!
Their double food buff means a constant buff boost thruout fights.

While I find the pandaren racial a bit redundant on the monk (the monk cc is so superior in every way) the look itself has really grown on me. I can't see myself as another race monk now.

I really enjoy my gnome monk and I don't regret it.

I played through the starting panda area anyway on a horde toon.

The double rested bonus is nice, but I already level WAY fast with hierlooms and the 1 hour XP buff daily.

I cannot stand big fat characters.

Was planning to go with orc, and may eventually race change, but I don't like the model. Already had an undead priest, so that was out. And I liked running around on my pandaren (just not liking the name Fiao).

However, double rested experience so far (lvl 40) has been worthless. And the food buff won't really come into play until Cata or Mists. Have gotten a lot of use out of bouncy though.

IMO i'd say Pandaren. It sounds cliche but I think all other races just look wierd/silly to me and panda's natural body movements give off the kungfu vibe even if your a warrior they do karate poses when they land from a jump. but ultimately is boils down to what race you enjoi seeing yourself as. Im horde and all my chars are trolls(4), goblins(3), & blood elves(3) besides my panda. Just go with what you like. Pick a random server and make a monk. It wont take long to figure out if its a keeper and if by lv10 your still having doubts make another one. Repeat until you find the race you feel the most comfortable with and then begin your journey into the mist.

Ever see a tauren roll? Most ridiculous sight ive ever witnessed in this game thus far.

Tauren and Troll roll is ROFL. Really Pandaren Monk is the only way to go. Gnome monks eh Pandaren druids or DK's just as foolish imhao:)

Tauren, obviously with our HOOVES OF GREAT JUSTICE!

...Plus, it is kind of laughable to see someone with hooves trying to kick. Cracks me up.

I've come to the realization that I won't be totally happy with any of the races looks so for now I'm going to stick with male Pandaren. If someone paid for a race change for me I'd probably switch to female panda just because they're so damn adorable.
