Default A request!

I have a request for you more program-savvy people. If someone could make a shot of the cinematic pandaren's face when he's smiling starting at 3:37 in as I'd like to use that as an avatar.

I would be eternally grateful!

In return, cookies and milk.

Go for it. I'm still hoping that a good soul will take pity on me and make me a shot of the "smiley face".

I liked the smirk from the middle of the cinematic more, so I took that.

And Gort, it is very simple to do it on your own:

Just open the cinematic on utube, press the Print Screen button at the exact moment you want ur avatar, go to Paint, press Ctrl-V, crop the image as you like, then go upload that image to an image sharing website and bam, new avatar.

I'm honestly shocked that you don't recognize who that Pandaren is. I mean there's only like one notable Pandaren before the release of the game.


If you're wondering "what's Chen don't on Pandaria", well, hopefully that will be answered soon.

Or it could be any random pandaren monk, considering they all wear the same clothes and attributes. I mean, Blizzard haven't represented the playable races by any specifically named characters in their cinematics before so who's to actually say this is indeed Chen. He doesn't have any individual features that separate him from the rest of the pandaren (well except for the golden eyes I guess but is he still the only pandaren with golden eyes in-game?) as far as I know so it could be just a random monk dude for all we know. The same goes for the orc and the human.

Anyway, thanks to Vineyard I now have an awesome new avatar.

A big thank you, Vineyard!

Is it okay if I pretend he's Panda Khan?

Chen's in-game model is unique and looks exactly like the cinematic model, no other Pandaren wears his exact clothing either. The narrator is also the same as his in-game voice. He also looks like the Pandaren on the expansion box which is also mentioned to be Chen.

Oh... OK, it is Chen then. This only makes the cinematic that much more awesome!

Are you going to make me pull the "I work at Blizzard" card (for a whopping two more days) in this argument?


It's Chen. Something is coming out soon that will confirm it's Chen. He looks like Chen, fights like Chen and carries a keg like Chen (a keg whose markings appear to be solely his, or at least solely belonging to the Stormstout Clan).

It's Chen.

Oh yeah Mr. Big Shot "I work at Blizzard", why don't you come say that to my face? Come at me, bro!

Anyway, Shadowsong already provided proof it's Chen.

Also - HA! I made you post a spoiler. (OK, not really but still...)

Anyone notice how Chen's facial pattern looks just a bit like a reverse Spawn?

Also, they really did just go for Kung-fu Panda with the cinematic, but it definitely worked.
