When Blizz took away my druid's permanent tree form, they took away my favourite aspect of druiding, the permanent tree shape. They took away all my tree puns, my tree emotes, my happy tree dance, my very identity as a druid healer. They also took away my ability to spot my toon easily in the chaotic mess that raids can become. My compensation for this was seeing armor that I could only truly admire when battle was over (really, folks, I'm too busy healing to care about my armor in battle!). Sometimes I liked that armor, often I did not. Armor visuals are a poor recompense for all the fun I lost with permanent tree form. I have no appreciation of my new tree form. Thirty seconds of giant broccoli is insufficient to grow attached to its quirks and personality. I was consoled by moonkin form. At least while DPSing I could once again regain some of my joy in my Druid. Bird puns are not a true substitute for tree puns, but boomy happy dance is as amusing and cheering as tree dance. Now you would have Blizzard remove the Moonkin form. Druid spellcasters will become as boring as other spellcasting classes. Much of the magic of druidhood will be removed. Both tree form and moonkin form were integral to druids when I started playing 6 years ago. I chose a druid as my first toon for its ability to change shape and have remained in love with them since. I do not understand why I must lose my favourite aspect of my toon so you may see some armor. If you loved armor so much and liked forms so little, why did you roll druid?
