World of Warcraft Druid Forms Getting New Look

The next major World of Wacraft patch will bring a new look for the animalistic Druid class in the form of texture options for its cat and bear forms.

"There will be five different designs for each of these forms for the Horde and Alliance," writes Blizzard. The company plans to introduce out the new designs in four screenshot installments, the first of which highlights the five new textures for the tauren bear form (seen left).

The looks will correspond to the nigh elves' hair color and the skin tone of tauren. The cow-like race will soon be able to change their skin tone at barbershops.

"Work continues on new looks for the remaining druid forms and we hope to add them in future content patches," added Blizzard.

    As a long-time feral druid player I had hoped for something a bit more complex, perhaps something that would react to what gear I had equipped. But this is a welcome update and finally it will be possible to tell several druids apart in a group with several of us. :)

    Looking forward to this!

      yup, that's one idea that people thought of. the other was to change the model depending on your average itemlevel or item type (resto/feral/hybrid etc)

      when I played I just used a worgen like the druid of the claw did (a good korean player back in the day)
