Video of New Forms

1 07 2009

Well, I know a few of you out there have been looking for more than just those static images that Blizzard provided back in early June, so a few brave druids are sitting on the test realms making video’s of us up to our usual druid shenanigans. Needless to say youtube user techbeat2k has made a wonderful video demonstrating all of the new forms, their colors, as well as the hair cut that is associated with each of them. I didn’t notice during the video the model glitches that the PTR was talking about [or looking for] that include a problem with the Collar showing the same way no matter what angle you look at it from.

Anyway here is the video, please sit back and enjoy [along with the nifty theme music]

Solo Ahune

26 06 2009

About 3 post back, when the whole “Mid Summer Fire Festival” thing started, I said that I would take a shot at actually solo’ing Ahune, this is so you guys out there can get the achievement and not worry about having to find a group to do it in. I assumed it would be easy to do given the whole nature of the Druid class, and in addition to that we can nearly solo every opening Northrend Instance that is out there. I should note that while I wasn’t able to get Ahune down in a single surfacing, that it was a pretty easy fight overall, and for most druids this shouldn’t be anything to worry about. Thanks to our “Leader of the Pack” and “Savage Defence” ability with bear form, this is a pretty easy fight. I would note that while I don’t advice it in resto [that would take forever], that doing it in Feral as DPS spec was easy enough.

I know I'm a clicker =(

Druid’s Revolt

17 06 2009

Its time to throw off the shackles of oppression, for to long we have been used by raid groups and guilds as nothing more than cannon fodder whose skill far exceeds those around us. And while everyone else is busy eating void zones, we are happily humping their corpses and still doing more DPS or keeping non void zone loving raid members alive.

For this reason, and for the soul fact that druids are by our very nature bored easily its time to throw a riot. Until further notice, I strongly encourage all druids to go on strike.
