I don't care about the other crap, but the closed mouth thing would be really awesome. That's something that has bugged me since I started playing WoW. I would also prefer if they just flat out removed the "snarl" appearance of the mouth since bears are actually physically incapable of doing that with their mouth, so it ends up making the head not even look like a bear.

Even the closed-mouth appearance looks weird. Very gummy.But I'd rather complain about the dumb Tauren cat form.Or that my BE pally's shoulder armor still floats above his body.I guess Blizzard is pretty busy making death knights living gods right now though huh.

Smurk: This has been an issue since loooooooong before the concept of the "Wrath" expansion even existed.I would encourage you to use the embedded YouTube object above to look up "Druids of Azeroth," which features Andrige's custom Druid skins. These modified textures are much easier on the eye and more fitting, in nearly every case, than the skins that Blizzard kept in the released version of the game.Funny thing about Andrige's modifications ... Blizzard decided that his gorgeous re-skin work was a violation of the Terms of Service. I wonder if this has anything to do with a few hours of an amateur's work proving the in-game artists' claims of "lacking resources" to be utter bologna (i.e. "too much time and effort," "lack of player interest;" etc).

I was going to suggest the same thing Badger.Andrige's re-skins of the druid forms (all except water form) are awesome and make my druid feel a lot cooler.I won't be surprised if it turns out that these animations are for npc mobs or hunter pets that Andrige includes the eating one in his form edits.

Eheh, glad you like the pack but I can't really switch animations from that Bear model to our own playable one. At least I think, a friend of mine was working on a 'bone-switcher' that theoretically could switch the setup of bones (which also includes the animations) to another model. He said it didn't work however and I believed him, but I haven't really checked if he has updated his tool since then. But... as many of you say, the fish/eat is probably just NPC animations so don't take this too hard if this whole thing won't even happen.
