New Skins For WOW Druid Forms

One of the things I do when I’m not writing is play World of Warcraft. Not as much as I used to, but still enough.

I am certain the game is making me get OCD, what with all the mounts, and achievements and vanity pets and tabards I have to get…

I am Horde – always have been, always will. My main is a Tauren Druid, which shouldn’t come as a surprise given how often Minotaurs crop up in my writing – though that predates playing WOW by many years.

I have been a Feral Druid since the start, which is a kind of druid that shapeshifts into a bear or a big cat to fight. The problem is that since game release the models have never changed – every druid, no matter their level or equipment, looks the same.

Finally, after four years of waiting, that is about to change. New skins are coming and the previews of the Tauren Bear Form have been released, with cat form to come later.

Tauren Bear Form

My Tauren is white skinned (and you may have run into a couple of those in Pure Escapism…) and, according to what we know so far, I should end up with the new white skinned polar bear form, and should also end up as a white lion. All very exciting.

    Very cool! very neat they are introducing new looks.
    My main was a resto druid (resto from day one!) but Alliance side. I kind of miss the game, though I really have no time for it at the moment. By the time I do I’ll be so far behind and out of touch with old guildies that it probably won’t be worth going back! lol I had my druid and a shadow priest raiding end game on alliance before WotLK came out, and a healing priest doing kara/SSC/Gruuls etc on Horde side. Fun times. Druids kick ass by far though, all time fav class.

    When I started, pretty much at game release, feral was by far the weakest of the druid specs – you killed even slower than a resto druid, which said something. But being the contrary type I am, and having a soft spot for shifting powers, I went feral.

    Horde/Alliance affiliation was never a contest in my case 🙂

    what can I say? I’m a girl, I wanted a ‘cute’ character!

    Elves are icky. Trolls and Tauren look way better 🙂 Much as I like being a Tauren, if they’d let Trolls be Druids I’d jump ship in an instant.

    I’d totally have played a Troll druid!
