Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't this whole "Pandaren Monk" thing an April Fool's joke a while back? In fact...http://wow.joystiq.com/tag/pandaren-monk/Yeah, it was an April Fool's joke. It also looks like they're remaking the game yet again. Might be fun!
Yeah, I guess after all that time of joking and teasing about it, they decided to finally give the players those pandas. It looks an awful lot like a Kung Fu Panda game, but it should make for an amusing change of pace. Also, the new talent trees have me a bit intrigued.
