Panda Paladins and Druids.

I thought that priests and paladins had basically the same faith but with different approaches. From a lore perspective, I don't really know why they can't be paladins. Them and worgen.


Pandaren priests worship the August Celestials, not the light. The pandaren version of warrior priest is the monk.

Also, paladins are zealots, which is at odds with the pandaren belief of finding balance in all things.

Even if it isn't the light they worship, why can priests get holy energy out of August Celestials, and not a paladin?

Come to think about it, why is the priest holy damage/healing and monk spells all nature? How does armor shrink or expand when it goes from say a gnome npc to a tauren? Why are some npcs resurrectable in story and not others? Why did the Alliance decide that the forsaken that tried to return to their alliance homes and families were mosters, and the worgen weren't? How is there starvation in westfall when edible creatures can just be resurrected after being eaten? What does dragon meat taste like - brimstone or grease? Why are there no good musicians among the npcs? Why are we raising pets now that will become even more invincible raid bosses for the next generation? How was China ok with all this panda violence? What's the chance of ending up in a battleground with Nathan Fillion on one side and Neil Patrick Harris on the other, and will it turn into a discussion about what "the hammer" is? When will orcs go to space? Why am I still going with this?

Because of game mechanics. They can't make all priests have different spells even if they're different in lore.

There is no harm in the class leaders taking the pandas under their wing and teaching the ways of paladins and druids.

if it hasn't happened for gnome paladins, as gnomes and dwarfs are best friends politically, it isn't going to happen for a race we just met

Best friends? Gnomes are like the in-law that comes for the holidays and then never leaves.

Because they also get shadow energy from them, thus having a balance. Paladins aren't' balanced in that aspect, and thus not something Panderans would follow.

At least we have our own place and know how to clean up irradiation.

There is absolutely no lore to back either class for Pandaren.

Adding new race and class combos was by far the most annoying thing Blizzard has ever done, now everyone wants everything for every race.

Well guess what? That would be boring.

killing the victims =/= cleaning up radiation.

I still want Panda Paladins and Druids.

Blood Elf Shammies/Druids, then.

You'll have to apply with the Humans.

Maybe a Panda Druid. I am a bit curious to see how a pandacat or a moonbear would look.

I wish I was around during the times Starshards still existed. Such fun and ridiculous things... I will never be able to experience. :\

The Pandaren hadn't heard of the Light until becoming exposed to the Alliance/Horde, so I don't see them having Paladins for a long time.

Druids are slightly more plausible, but still unlikely.

BELF druids imo. So I don't have to ruin my 11 BELF roster with one ugly tauren. Then again they'd probably make the flight form a stupid dragonhawk. UGH.
