I've played a druid on and off since the original beta and my biggest two complaints about this class have always been the lackluster visual appeal of our models and the limitations imposed when using each form. Want to DPS? Sure but you can't heal. Want to heal? Okay but you can't DPS.The limitations issue would seriously require a lot of rethinking on the class itself, however the model problem can be sorted out easily enough. Whether through glyphs or special talents, druids should have some options on how their forms look. Let's face it, a significant portion of this game revolves around eye candy yet no matter what gear I earn, my 74 druid always looks the same. He's either a tubby, purple moonkin or a tree. And since the forms can't easy reflect our gear, the forms themselves should be somewhat customizable. It sounds silly but if bear form wasn't so ugly and blocky, I'd probably take up tanking. As it stands, I've got very little desire to stare at the hind end of a low polygon bear for 3 hours.So, at least for me, the model thing is a big issue. If I'm going to take the time to level up my character and earn gear and rewards, I'd like to be able to see them. If I can't see them I should be rewarded in some other way. Otherwise I'm going to just keep playing my Shaman.
