Yesterday I decided to create a Pandaren Monk just to try it out and see how I liked it. Probably the most interesting thing about Pandarens is that they're not faction oriented. All of the other races are either Alliance or Horde but Pandarens are by nature peaceful pacifists. So when you're introduced to the Pandaren starting zone everyone is the same like one big, happy family.
Pandaria is full of very recognizable geographical features and architecture. I suppose the great thing about WoW (World of Warcraft) is that when they release a new expansion you cannot initially use your mount to fly on the new continent. I'm glad you can't fly, it gives you the opportunity to appreciate the amazing scenery like an adventurer exploring new land.
While I was leveling my Pandaren Monk up to level 10 I completed many new and interesting quests. There was one quest that involved "The Singing Pools". In particular pools you would transform into different animals. In one pool a skunk, another a frog and yet another a turtle. This reminded me of an anime I love, Ranma 1/2 where the male character is transformed into a girl when he's splashed with cold water.
WoW loves to make allusions. They constantly include new NPCs (Non-Person Characters) with very recognizable names, whether it's from fiction or reality. This time I ran into a character that really made me laugh. His name is "Makael Bay". Makael starts you off with a quest to collect, see if you can guess it, explosive charges. MICHAEL BAY EXPLOSIONS!
One last comment, I saw something in Pandaria that really made me nostalgic. A creature based off of a water strider insect. I couldn't help but reach back in my memory to Super Mario 64. What do you think? Do they look alike or what? Okay maybe WoW's is a little more realistic. Still! You get the idea. Anyway, I'll have more on Pandaria tomorrow!
