Blizzard Announces a New WoW Expansion, Class and Race

You'll finally be able to get your Pandaren monk on.

The newest addition to the 'World of Warcraft' universe may seem bizarre to a lot of players, but 'Warcraft III' fans know all about the latest race to join the lineup. Pandarens, which are exactly what they sound like, live in a city that seems very influenced by Chinese design. It's also on top of a giant turtle.

Blizzard also introduced the Monk class, which should bring a different play style to the game. You can build it to heal, to tank or to do damage. Apparently, though the Monk is a melee class, it will "eschew auto-attacks.

The expansion, 'Mists of Pandaria,' will also bring big changes to the talent and specialization systems, new non-class-specific instances that don't require healers and tanks, dungeon challenges and plenty of new PvP to enjoy. Oh, and you can battle your pets like Pokemon. Seriously.
