That moonkin quest in winterspring was tagged in to try and justify moonkin form. I really look at it as a retcon. Balance druids, are druids that focused more on casting spells, and invoking nature to take care of foes, which we already had in lore as Druids of the Talon. Druids of the Talon could cast in stormcrow form, but on the ground, where they were the most useful, they were just in a simple caster form.I fully realize that druids in WoW are Druids of the Wild, a new breed that were built just for WoW, but many of the concepts for the Feral and Resto tree stemmed from the general gameplay of the Druid of the Claw unit. Balance was the carry through of the Druid of the Talon unit, all compressed into one tree.Everywhere in lore, and even cannon stories, druids will shape shift into cats, bears, but not moonkin, when they need to suddenly cast a stronger spell they don't go, "oh I need to become a moonkin now".Moonkin IS a outdated, broken mechanic that was supposed to make the balance tree similar to the shadow tree, only it failed horribly in making a parallelism between shadow form and moonkin form.
