Early on in Vash’jir, if you happen to be on your Druid, there’s something I’d like for you to try if you haven’t already.
If you’re out there, I’m sure you already went into your Swimming form and found out you’re a torpedo-fast manatee of death and destruction.
All the wonders of being able to harvest Herbs in the instant-cast Flight form carry over in our being able to blast through the zone doing gathering in our instant-cast Swimming form.
It continues to be a grand thing, being a Druid.
But there is one thing you might not have done while focusing on questing that I’d really like for you to take a moment to try.
Head down to the sandy ocean floor, switch to Bear form, and then do the equivalent of running along the bottom.
Your Bear still ‘bear paddles’ while swimming through the water, but when you get down to the bottom, instead of the normal “I’m running on land” waddle animation, we bound… we bound in glee, clouds of sand rising behind us as we propel ourselves like graceful, furry astronauts of win.
It’s glorious, it sings, it’s my new most awesomest small touch in the game.
It’s these little things that mean so much to me.
I am, at heart, a hopper when I’m in Bear form and travel from place to place. I don’t just run in a straight line EVER, I bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce, first a bounce to the left, then a bounce to the right, sometimes even bounces in place or a 360° spin, just because I can. It’s the Tigger in me. Now, instead of the same old bounce, I get a bound to add to it!
The wonderful thing about Druids,
is Druids are wonderful things.
Our butts are made out of awesome
and our pounce is full of pure win!
And it’s bouncy bouncy bouncy bouncy,
fun fun fun fun FUN!
But the most wonderful thing about Druids is,
that I’m not the only one.
I’mmmmm NOOOOOT… the only one!
Woo hoo hoo hoo!
