<<First comic <Previous comic | Next comic> Latest comics>>

By the time you see this comic, Blizzcon may well have come and gone and we’ll know whether our panda-shaped hopes for the next expansion will soar over the skies of mist-shrouded islands or be crushed under the steel-plated boots of Blizzard development.

As delightful as I find the pandaren, I won’t be too upset if we don’t get them as a playable race.  I don’t know if I could handle the cognitive dissonance of having an adorable, big-eyed panda person gank my lowbie alt, teabag my corpse, and call me an anal n00b.  At least crazy cursed wolf-men and conniving goblins were believable being the kind of jerks that we all know players can be.  If I have to get used to my fellow players being pandaren, too, it’ll take some adjustment.


  1. I like the sound of “the most adorable killing spree ever”

  2. … you seem to be operating under the illusion that pandas are NICE. cute, yes. nice? not in THIS life! =)

    Kind of wish I could see that “most adorable killing spree ever.” Would be entertaining to watch, indeed, seeing who’s IN that suit.

    • Ah, you’re right, I fell victim to one of the classic blunders, the most famous of which is never get involved in a land war in Kalimdor, but only slightly less well known is don’t be fooled into thinking that being roly-poly-cute means pandas are nice!

  3. Most of the people who find joy in ganking newbies have – as far as I can tell – expressed universal disdain for the Pandaren race, so I don’t think there’s much to worry about.

    • True, there does seem to be a correlation.
