Just for an amusing start to the morning, I check out MMO Champion’s report on the Blizzard Developer Chat session, and see this;

Q. Why are Restoration druids the only spec in the game not receiving a new spell?

A. Restoration druids are actually getting a fair bit. For one, Tree of Life is getting a whole new model (think Ancients of War) and will also “morph” some of your spells to do crazy things while in the form, such as cause Regrowth to be instant, or Lifebloom to apply two applications at once. Tranquility will be raid-wide. We’re also touching nearly every Restoration druid spell to make sure each has a niche and feels good. In general, playing a Restoration druid should feel a lot different (better!) in Cataclysm than it does today.

I’d just like to say, for the record, we called it!

That and a quarter will get me twenny fi’ cents, but it’s still pretty funny. It’s so rarely that I’m right on anything, it feels like a totally new experience.

    Hey so you’re cataclysm experience started today right?

    Wow. If this actually goes live (and I’ll believe it when I’m playing it) then I take back my negative thoughts about losing the Tree of Life form. That sounds EPIC!

    Heh, I had the experience the other way around – read the dev chat first, then read your article about using the Ancient graphics just over an hour before you posted this one (hence my comment on that article).
