The Mists of Pandaria expansion for World of Warcraft won't be out until next year but you can start planning your character today. Blizzard has released a talent calculator for ten of the game's character classes.

Pandaria will overhaul the game's character abilities. There are no longer any talent trees. Every 15 levels, you'll be given a choice between three talents. Later talents are not linked to earlier ones and you can pick any you want regardless of specialization. Your specialization, meanwhile, will make a greater difference in what spells or abilities you have access to.

The only class not currently supported by the calculator is the Monk. The Monk class will be released along with Pandaria so Blizzard's no doubt still toying with its mechanics.

Mists of Pandaria will be arriving sometime next year. You can reserve a spot in the beta by signing up for a year's subscription to WoW.
