Felt compelled to post again because of the "It's kinda ugly and masculine" remarks.I am a female who's been leveing a female tauren druid and I think these are MAGNIFICENT. These are for a spec called "feral". What were people looking for? Something with sparkles? These new works of art take the descriptions of "feral" and "bovine" and make for an accurate tauren cat form.These new forms are beautiful in a way that something feral can be, and I have no idea how anyone can even compare these to the old cat form which is poorly texturized, poorly designed and ugly as sin.

I don't think the most of the complaints about it being "masculine" are people wanting "something with sparkles" as you say. Rather, it's people playing female characters who would prefer their character not look like what is obviously a MALE lion in cat form. The problem is with the fact that lions have obvious sexual dimorphism rather than being sexually neutral (like panthers, the inspiration for the Nelf cat forms.) It is quite possible to have a female lion that still carries that fierce look, just without the mane and nose ring. (Which is a feature only available to male tauren in humanoid form, anyway.) Afterall, female lions are the hunters of the group. Killer instinct is in their blood. Just because something is female, does NOT mean it's all "sparkly and nice".

I'm with you on this.I'm a girl, and my druid is female, and I can't WAIT for her to look like this.I can see where some people are coming from, preferring not to have a mane or a 'beard' (though to me that's far from obvious), etc.But I also hope Blizzard wouldn't go and give female druids different forms, at least not without making it something we can choose not to use.Not all of us are concerned with looking feminine (that's what my male BElf is for :p), and I would be distraught to lose the mane from this gorgeous cat. In my eyes, it would lose all of its impact.

Thank you, Jere! Exactly how I feel, these beautiful creations would loose the feral look without the manes.
