This pet is available for digital download exclusively from the Blizzard Store. It may be purchased using any major credit card. Players who purchase this pet will receive a code which may be redeemed on any WoW account. All WoW accounts (of the same region) under one will have access to this pet. Codes may also be purchased as gifts for other players.

As a part of the Pandaren Monk's summoning animation, its owner will chug from a drinking stein. Additionally he responds to /bow by bowing in return and /drink by sitting and having a drink with his owner.

This pet was also available as a FigurePets collectible (series 3).

In 2009, proceeds from Pandaren Monk adoptions went to charity. It generated over $1.1 million for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Note that half of the proceeds of every Pandaren Monk purchased through December 31, 2009 will be donated to the Make-a-Wish Foundation. I'm very happy to see Blizzard doing something worthwhile with the money earned from these new store-bought pets.

Whatever you do, don't accidentally key voice chat while making Kung Fu noises along with your Pandaren. Not that I would know this from experience...

The Pandaren Monk is amazingly cute and has incredible animations: two fighting sequences, plus bows and stretches. If you /drink with him, he sits down to drink from his hip bottle. He'll remain sitting until you move quite a large distance away, at which point he runs to catch up. If you /bow to him he will bow back to you!

His blackout kick is awesome if you need to switch to another pet or it adds extra zip to his jab.  

While I love his chi-focus to add power to his jab, I do wish blizzard had given him the "first use wind-up; second use bam!" ability much like Fluxfire Feline and others have.  That would have freed up a slot to give a self heal.  He does have a damage reducing ability, but I would have preferred a self heal.  He is afterall a monk.

It truly warmed my heart to see your comment and picture, Nick. I am so glad that the organization gives such awesome once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to children in need and I applaud Blizz for helping us all to contribute! Kudos! <3 (And the little monk is awesome as well! ^_^)

This pet is by far one of the most detailed and interactive pet to date, I really don't know how they are going to top this little guy! I am hoping that they make it so my gnome can get the same type of hat and we can be twins!

   This is the third pet I usualy have in my level 25 PvP team, It will distroy any dragon it comes up aginst. If you dicide to get any pet from the blizz store for battling you should choose this one. wiht Focused Chi and Fury of 1,000 Fists it will one shot almost every dragonkin pet in the game.

GREAT pet! (as with all the Blizz store pets) His "Blackout Kick" will ALWAYS force a trainer to swap pets, so dont expect to use the double damage punch unless the guy youre fighting is down to his last................................................. Love the heals, and he makes great noises! a solid staple to my Capture team!

I have a story about this little guy:  I was traveling along the risky roads of Duskwood, and my Pandaren Monk, named Hawanna Jr., and he started to do his little moves. I looked out to see what it was, and I remembered I had took him out.  I then saw a Horde on a rage on me, and he was about to get me with a Slowing Attack.  I activated my Speed Forward Spell, and I got away just in time!  So, a hint: To travel safely, is to travel with a Pandaren Monk!

He will become one of your favorite pets to summon and follow you around in town. I love his personality as a vanity pet (amusing karate kicks with vocals) as well as his effectiveness as a battle pet. If you are into this part of the game he is worth the purchase. Not only a designated Dragon killer but a real attention getter since everyone that runs by wants to stop and look at him. Fun little addition to the game.

I love this little guy. He helps a very worthwile cause, and he's just mega entertaining. Every time he makes those noises, I take a nostalgia trip to Tekken world and think of Law. Or move world and think of Bruce Lee. And judging from the other comments, glad I'm not the only one to make noises with him! Although I sadly found out that Boomkin lack a bow animation T_T

Out of both of the new pets, this is the one I think will be my traveling companion, especially when questing and leveling when Cata comes out. He just looks like he's ready for a long journey and whatever WoW can throw at me!

@Oshocka Yes that does seem to be a odd mix of needed spells. Remember that Elementals ignore the Darkness so you wont have any advantage of stunning them. Darkness seems pointless because you need another pet to set it up and it isn't a 100% Hit chance(Like Nocturn Strike) at that point. Plus you never really get to make good on your Focus Chi. You can't Stun, focus, and headbutt to get the extra damage because the stun is off...

Focus Chi then 1000 fists is hard to beat. His top 20 ranking is low in my opinion.

The pandaren monk is a fearless traveling companion, constantly training in his art... unless you offer him a drink. He considers it rude to refuse.
