Tales is beginning to shape up it’s story framework with one of the first major villains. Xiaoyin (pronounced Show-Yin) will also make an appearance in an animated teaser video I’ll be working on. You might say – whoa there ‘sparkle! There are no pandaren warlocks and I would agree – officially. Part of Xiaoyin’s bio is that he pushed the boundaries of magic too far and was exiled; his pursuits of power led him to essentially become a warlock, albeit pandaren style.
Much of Pandaren warlockery is part martial, part magical and borrows from the stylings of Big Trouble, Little China and The Last Dragon. He is essentially an assassin-consultant for the Underhand (a goblin and gnome technology exchange).
