I noticed the Swooping Animation on Live servers a few weeks ago, I assume it went live with 4.0.6. Most don't notice it if they Jump-Shift.

wait, people don't jump+shift when they go flight form? i thought that was standard practice for all of us druids?!?!?!

If you don't jump, you're doing it wrong.

God, that is unnerving. I haven't switched to Flight Form on the ground while stationary in ... years. Probably not since getting it for the first time. Since then, it's been all cliffs and sprints, much to my everlasting horror while cheerfully tossing myself from heights or the Dalaran sewer in "Wrath" before getting Cold Weather Flying.

I once met my doom by jumping off Aldor rise in BC and hitting moonkin form by mistake.... I saw feathers and wondered why I wasn't flying until *splat*.

2 druids leveled to 85... 2 weeks of bleary-eyed mornings.Playing the abandoned hunter for the first time in years...Jumping off the precipice in Telaar and trying to shift.......yeah.

I'm trying to break myself of the habit of jumping while shifting into flight form. Since 4.0, it seems to preserve the vertical component of my movement when deciding what attitude to start my flight at. So unless I'm already aiming myself with my mouse (a rarity at takeoff), I fly immediately back into the ground. It's made level flying a major pain. Swimming has the same problem, too.
