World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Hands-On Preview - Panda M

  • If you missed it, Blizzard used its 2011 BlizzCon fan event to announce Mists of Pandaria, the subsequent expansion for World of Warcraft. Among several things, the development will offer the brand new Asian-themed continent of Pandaria to discover, a fresh playable race inside Pandarens (who originated as a possible April Fools' Day joke for 2003's Warcraft III), and a different playable class, the monk. We took the ability to try out a Pandaren monk on the event and also have new details to report.  
    The Pandaren race is still being worked on--female character models aren't actually within the game yet, as an example--but our male Pandaren monk appeared to walk, jump, roll, and fight all right. Pandaren monks begin their endures their continent's Wandering Isle, reporting into a kung fu master who accompanies them in their early travels. Monks' early quests require these to equip themselves with fistwraps and consult lore scrolls to know about their heritage, but soon, they're asked to Buy Warmane Gold travel outside in the monastery to battle off pockets of marauding hozu (the monkey-like race indigenous towards the continent) and rescuing and escorting elemental spirits to sacred temples. Along the way, we found ourselves dueling with spectral fighting techinques masters and perching ourselves precariously on poles poking away from a cursed lake. You should expect to see lots of World of Warcraft's trademark quirky quest objectives at the start of your life being a pudgy panda monk here.        
    The monk's early skills pertain almost entirely to combat. Very in early stages, monks have the stance from the fierce tiger, a modal combat stance that increases their damage by 20 %, though they could later learn a different stance, drunken ox. While they don't make use of mana to cast their spells like mages and warlocks, they actually do have "chi" points, that happen to be expended to execute certain attacks and skills, but fortunately manage to recover in a short time over time. The monk's basic attack may be the jab, which currently costs 40 chi points (our monk stood a maximum of 100) and accumulates one light force point and another dark force point.    
    Monks use force points as his or her combat "resource" (just like combo points for rogues) and will store at the most four light force points and four dark force points. They can also understand the tiger palm attack, a melee attack which costs one light force point and deals bonus problems for enemies with a lot more than fifty percent health; the blackout kick, a roundhouse kick that deals decent damage and expenses a dark force point; and flying serpent kick, a melee attack that lets monks close distance (like the warrior's charge attack) and briefly stuns its target. Monks can also study the roll ability, which costs 50 chi points and deals no damage but causes those to tumble forward on the ground--a considerably faster alternative to walking.            
    Pandaren characters have several innate racial powers that have to do with food and cooking (they gain completely bonus from eaten food, and still have a +15 on their cooking skill), in addition to a safe fall skill that reduces their falling damage by half, plus they gain double the amount experience bonus internet marketing rested and have a "quaking palm" ability that may stun an enemy target for four seconds or till the target is damaged. Quaking palm might sound powerful, and may likely be useful for certain situations, but from your experience until now, it may not be an overwhelmingly unfair ability by any means. Monks, inside the meantime, appear to be an interesting substitute for warriors through an unusual combat resource system. We'll create for you more updates on the increase as they become available.
