What race...

Monk
Makes the coolest monk personality wise, and looks good in most leather gear?
not pandaren plss nooo
If you are Alliance, it's really really hard to beat human.

free trinket, mace an sword specialization AND diplomacy. if your MW you even get Spirit bonus!

they look cool in leather too!
Well I'm not talking racials at all I just mean the pure feel of the race and how well they can make leather armor look and basically be a convincing monk.

go to wowhead 3d models to try it out
Tauren and gnome for looks.

trolls for animations.

I deleted my 55 pandaren monk to remake into a troll monk.
Dwarf. Brewmaster goes with the Dwarfs heavy drinking society. And they're the perfect height to inflict Fists of Fury to the family jewels of most other races.
Draenei is the correct answer.
Blood Elf is the correct answer.
Can't believe no one is advocating for Pandaren yet.

I personally like the mass amount of Pandaren monks too.
Orc mah monk... nuff said
Troll, Night elf, or Blood elf.

Pandas are too fat.
We're all going to have different opinions on personal preference. As mentioned before, go to Wowhead and look up some leather sets and view different races in the 3D viewer. There's some monk animations you can try out to see which one looks best to you.

Tauren is best for me. :)
Troll, Night elf, or Blood elf.

Pandas are too fat.
Female Pandaren are freaking adorable.

Blood Elf is the correct answer.
Pandas are common simply due to the lore/expansion and the fact that the animations look natural on them. They look really good in monk specific leather as well. I personally think some of the other races look ridiculous doing the monk animations. Makes me laugh, it looks so stupid. So while people talk smack about the abundance of panda monks, I think its pretty obvious why we are a high choice.
I like my human, but when i use the Blood Elf orb I like that too.
I really like the look of troll monks. And just for sheer amusement/personality wise, it is almost impossible to not bust out laughing at a gnome monk. Not as amusing if they're ripping your face off, but still funny! RSK to the crotch!
i picked fem orc mostly because i thought there wouldnt be many others, i was kinda right. the gear looks alright on them and some helpful racials too!
