How many pandas can you count inside the box to World of Warcraft's next expansion? If you answered "all the pandas", you'd be on the right track.

Warning: this video may contain brief moments of singing.

Mists of Pandaria is unleashed upon the World of Warcraft next week, ushering a new era of furry jokes in general chat. Along with the bearish new playable race the expansion also delivers a new class — the Monk — and a level cap raise to 90, complete with five levels of new content to make it work.

I logged into the game the other day, dusted off my level 85 Mage, and stared at the vastly renovated talent system for 15 minutes before logging off and having a little lie down. Hopefully I'll be more prepared come Monday night at midnight Pacific!
