World of Warcraft Mists of Pandaria Monk Class Details
The new World of Warcraft expansion introduces a brand new class to the already extensive list of 10 classes - the Monk. This class is deeply rooted in martical arts, though they can also use staves, fist weapons, one handed axes and more.

These are not a hero class and start out at level 1. They can have one of three roles in combat, depednant, much like the druid, on spec;

And if you think Kung Fu Panda clones were enough, wait til you get a load of the other races able to be monks: draenei, dwarf, gnome, human, night elf, blood elf, orc, tauren, troll, and undead. The other races I sort of understand, but Tauren and Draenei seem a little chunky to be as nimble as a monk... Who am I kidding, the Pandaren are huge.
Much like druids, monks will benefit from leather armor with agility or intellect, depending on their build, and will depend on Chi (energy) for class-specific moves such as Jab and Roll. Jab will generate either Light or Dark Force, which can be expended to perform other moves.
