Druids are amazingly cool, ability-wise. The reason that I'm no longer playing my 66 horde druid is that they're amazingly boring, visual-wise. Let's put it this way: Your cat form or bear form never changes. Ever. No matter what cool equipment you get, you will only ever see the same exact view of yourself in action from level 20 to level 60. Get used to it, because that's all folks!Plus, if you're tauren, you look goofy In OR OUT of animal form! You have short little legs and a huge misshapen hump of a spine and gigantic monkey arms... You will never look cool. Forget it. You look like the shallow end of the gene pool no matter how powerful you are.And if you're tauren, get used to that freaky broken-jaw wide-open-mouth idiot's grin of a lion form... with HORNS, ON A LION. OH YEAH THAT MAKES SENSE. HORNS ON ANYTHING MAKE IT LOOK COOL, LIKE HORNS ON A CADILLAC, IT NEVER LOOKS LIKE ASS OH NO OF COURSE NOT. /sarcasmSo, while playing a druid was fun, I just couldn't get past the fact that I looked like ass. It came to a head when another druid helped me out once... he was dressed all in level 70 epics... I had hoped that someday, with the right equipment, I would someday look good, and stately, and cool, and righteous.MY LEVEL 70 ALL-EPIC FRIEND LOOKED LIKE ASS TOO, EVEN WORSE THAN ME! HOLY SHIT SONOFABITCH... I cried, I couldn't take it any more. I re-rolled.I don't play the game to look like something off of "The Island of Dr. Moreau". So that's why I don't play a druid any more. Despite loving their versatility and their powers.

Honestly, that fact that your feral forms never change is a plus for me. I hate looking stupid in rainbow-spectrum mismatched armor. Lets face it...BC took all those crappy level 20 and less armor models and made you wear them again. As for horns on a bear/cat... You really think long ears are better? I'd rather have a nice pair of horns that I can imagine doing extra damage then big old bouncing elf ears distorting the texture wrap on the model. I love druids. I'm totally feral... my 10 points in resto do nothing but give me omen of clarity and furor, really... and yet when I slap on my healing gear I have a mana pool than near-never runs dry and HoT spells that work so beautifully the tank wonders if he's even been -taking- damage. 'Sides. When you come across a /dancing moonkin/tree/bear/whatever... you can't help but smile.
