Druid Q&A answers from Developer Chat

by on Feb.27, 2010, under General

Here are the druid related questions and answers from Developer Chat:

Q. Is there any ETA on tree / moonkin form graphical update?
A. Moonkin is hard because Moonkin players are so in love with that form. It’s tough to change it at all. We currently hope to do a new tree form for Cataclysm, but no promises.

Q. Has there been any thought of changing Eclipse to charges so that Moonkin dps doesn’t suffer so much from moving?
A. Yes. Expect a major overhaul in Cataclysm that keeps the same basic idea (alternating from Arcane to Nature) but in a way that is more core to the class. Like everything though, there is the risk that we may decide this idea sucks once we see it in action.

REALLY?  We love moonkin form?  REALLY?

    well, I think allys are happy with thier moonkin form, suppose that blizzard only asked allys ’bout what they think

  • Sunfyre

    I wasn’t a huge fan when I was alliance. I think we still look too comical.

  • Nasci

    I’m alliance and I do love my moonkin form, but I’d love it more if it matched my hair color. Shifting into white kitty for the first time almost made me want to go back to feral…

    I presume they will hav’ta do an alternate model for the troll/worgan moonkin form, due to the trolls not having hug great big horns like the tauren’s.

  • Brusana

    Yeah being a reskined Ogre is not something that I’ve ever been happy with.

    I think moonkin form would be kept up when we are mounting up/using Goblin Rocket Pack(Bear Form FTW)/etc. I know it’s realisable to mount up as moonkin, but without cheating that’s impossible. And true: mount up as a Dire Bear/Tree Form sounds/looks more than strange :P

    I have been playing a moonkin for years. I am sooo sick of looking at the same stupid form. There needs to be some different models to use. As for mounting as a moonking, the dev’s said years ago, that the model was too big to ride mounts, so why dont they just make the moonkin model smaller?

    my new signature “A. Moonkin is hard because Moonkin players are so in love with that form.”

    I’m alliance and I really would love a graphical update for moonkin form. Who in the world said we were in love with it? I think it looks a bit ridiculous to be honest.

    I originally specced moonkin for one reason alone. The dance!! Yeh it would be nice if the quality and models of your gear showed graphically ( other than checking someones hp/mana bars ) I would be a sad owlpanda if they changed it. He’ll even coloured skins like kitty form would be fine.

  • Balourd

    Or just keep the same basic model but update it a bit, like we said earlier, to match hair color. i don’t know how they’ll make a tree match hair color though, bark is pretty much brown all thet ime. The leaves maybe?

  • Moriel

    I play WoW since early vanila and i love the balance druid but i hate the moonkin model. After so many years i cant watch it anymore. Think i will reroll a mage or priest.
