Why no Pandaren Death Knights?

Some people say its because it doesn't fit with the lore, because the Pandaren were all on their turtle or continent. But most who have played Warcraft 3 would know that their were pandaren all over Azeroth, in Icecrown even. Yes, most were feral, but the Worgen were too, and they got to be Death Knights. Some think it's because of game mechanics, that they wouldn't be able to add a faction choice to the Death Knight questline without messing with the other races. Those who played the MoP Beta and started a 85 Pandaren would have gotten a faction selection box just before finishing the character creation. So, if not a Lore problem, and not a mechanics problem, then what reason is there for us not to have Pandaren Death Knights?

Er, I don't know what lore you've been looking at, but pandaren were not 'all-over' azeroth. To see one in person was INCREDIBLY rare. The likelyhood that you would find one on Kalimdor or EK that had enough martial skill to be considered worthy of being a Death Knight was almost nil.

Worgen got to be deathknights because they came from EK, not northrend. They were gilnean heroes, who got turned into worgen and became feral. When raised as DK's, their feral nature was overridden by the Lich King's mind control, meaning that once they were freed, it was almost as if they had never lost their minds in the first place.

As for the Pandaren in Icecrown? I believe those got retconned as furblogs.

Incorrect. Worgen DKs are actually from Arugal's bunch.

I feel like auto-correct made this a potentially sexist post...

They could just let Pandas be Death Knights and call them Sha Touched or something. Not really much difference.


Not sure if stupid or trolling.

On topic, the reason why they can't be Death Knights is because we're too awesome for them.

There were the Brewmasters from taverns, and even Chen Stormstout himself if I remember correctly, they were all over Azeroth.

Actually, there is a large difference, Death Knights are the dead who have been chosen by the Lich King to be revived and granted power similar to his own. Sha energy is emotion given a physical form, therefore it does not affect the dead, as the dead do not have emotion, and the Sha do not serve the Lich King, so the questline would not make any sense.

source on this? pre mop ive never seen a single pandaren ever bar chen stormstout in wc3
lorewise its been explained that the other races havent seen pandaren around for a long time hence the suprise of seeing bearlike creatures upon arrival to pandaria

there simply arent enough pandaren in kalimdor or eastern kingdoms for blizz to say oh yeah panda dks can exist.

Worgen DKs are not wild ones from NO WHERE. Blizzard has stated (And the DK starter quests) state that Worgen DKs are Worgen whom escaped from Shadowfang Keep.

Pandas in Warcraft III were a frigging easter egg, and even lore wise were SO rare in Azeroth that it isn't even funny.

Also:
Pandas are !@#$ing stupid.

If a worgen has fleas, and dies and is resurrected as a death knight, do the fleas become undead fleas too?
