Now that the NDA is Over...

...I've seen the female Pandaren design.  While it's better than I expected, she's still too skinny.  Is it too much to make a female Pandaren look more like a Panda first and a dwarf second?


  1. I'm just happy that they didn't go for the worgen part 2 path.

  2. I'll grant you that, Antlergirl, but apparently Blizz changed the Worgen female from design through Beta, so it ain't over until it's over.

  3. At least it's not some super-skinny belf-style model with fur and slightly bigger eyes. It looks more like an average female than most of the other races...
    Still, though, I was kind of hoping for a big bouncy grandma-made-you-kids-some-cookies! kind of female for the pandas. Just sayin'...

  4. @Hyperious-- That'd be more true to style, although pandas aren't exactly cuddly up close.

    The one thing that I did see that I was most intrigued about was that they didn't mess up the Westernized Oriental imagery too badly. I kind of winced at the Jade Forest (or whatever it was), but I guess that was a given that 'jade' was going to figure in somewhere.

    I just hope they actually worked with those knowledgeable in Chinese culture and didn't say "Hey! Wouldn't it be cool if...."
