Personally I think the new forms are sick (sick in a good way not bad way. Actually had to clarify that for a guildy >.<)I like that they have added the leather wraps to the horns, and given the bears necklaces and such... (always loved the way they added that stuff to epic flight forms.) The face paint made me kinda go O.o but it doesn't look bad IMO.. im on board for it.Im really looking forward to see what they do to cat form for both and my alliance druids bear form... (not that i ever had a problem with his forms)But I'm sad that they are tying the models in with a taurens fur color and the NE's hair color. My NE has purple hair.... It's just who the character is... I have no issues with the current cat model... I hope they keep that skin tone in game when they switch over.... but what happens if my purple hair doesn't get me the purple cat model? (if there is one)..... Why do we have to pick and choose one over the other? I've looked at other hair colors on the character and they just don't work..... I changed his hair color to get the achievement then changed it right back... I think they need to make the forms independent of each. Druids are the masters of shape shifting... they can control turning into a bear, a cat, a tree, or a moonkin... but not control the coloration..... If your turning into a panther why not a tiger? it's still cat.... only difference is it's coloration....
About time if you ask me :pI really liked the polar bear design, and also the black one was really nifty :)
http://www.wow.com/2009/05/27/night-elf-druid-bear-forms-revealed/Polar Bear = LuffI've always prided my Druid's white hair and I always hoped when they added new skins it would tie in with your hair color. I think it's PERFECTLY done, because a Druid's animals forms should draw directly from the Druid him/herself, not just from nature. Kudos, Blizz.
The night elf forms have also been revealed now on the under development page of the wow website for anyone that was looking.edit: Erlinn beat me to it with a link to another page.
Weeeelp, time to start leveling my druid again :).I particularly like the center, bottom left and bottom right models.DIBS!
!@#$ YEAH ALAMO (WoWWiki)
I am ecstatic and grateful that they're finally doing this. But I'm very disappointed to hear fur color will be tied to hair color. My n'elf has white hair. What if I want to be a purple cat and black bear? From the way the preview page is worded, I won't be able to do that. I'll be stuck with whatever forms correspond to my chosen haircolor. That is not cool at all. Don't give us choices and then lock us into one, Blizz! There's got to be a way to handle this differently.
