He is exactly where the pilgrim bounty tables where.
Jan 23rd 2011 11:24AM Travel form is not usable indoor.
The usefulness of the spell is limited to it being able to use potions/gather node, being insta cast and usable in combat.
Does that make it overpowered as some people like to pretend?
No (just one smart pally can make it moot, it has no survivability, and druids are not the only good flag carrier... They might be slightly better in theory, but good strategy can make up for the difference and good game play gets you the win)
Is it useful as it is?
Druids have a talent for run speed boost in cat form (up to 30%) yes this is extremely useful. Usable indoors (thank god they changed that). But many other classes have talents that give movement speed increase. So it is a bit lower than the maximum speed achieved by ghost wolf form, and only feral druids would have the talent points to spare for it.
Oh, and no... it is NOT IMPOSSIBLE to mail stuff from server to server even if it where from a EU server to a US one.
While I do not work for blizzard so I have no idea what they're code mess looks like... No matter how horrible and convoluted it is. It just is NOT plain impossible to do so.
The only thing is that it might be difficult, might require way too much man hours in development and testing, and has the potential to bring down the server for hours at a time in the first few weeks of its release.
Plus currently there is an alternative (the character transfer version) that actually brings in money for blizzard. So I can see why they won't go through the trouble to do so.
But in the end, it's NOT IMPOSSIBLE.

Yeah I realize that bears got nerfed pretty heavily :'( ... So I might not be able to pull of the same stunts (The first boss in BRC is a push over though so I could probably still pull it off, but the trash packs in ToT are probably impossible with just me and the priest now).
And no, it was my character I copied over, in average Ilvl 249 probably (got some quest greens from Vashj'ir and kept my T10 4 piece bonus). We where at lvl 82 already though...
And I actually did do complete runs of those two dungeons with groups. So I saw the rest of it. It just wasn't hard enough to make CC mandatory, it would make your life easier though. Maybe I was expecting too much? Maybe harder wouldn't have been fun anymore? I know that this kind of things is very hard to balance. So I'm not really complaining.
Anyway, that was my first comment in here, but long time reader and specifically of your articles on Bears keep it up!

Dec 6th 2010 6:16PM If I win, I promise I won't show off!
Dec 6th 2010 6:15PM Or an easier way to do so is from a quest in Hyjal that would send you directly to the entrance.
Dec 6th 2010 6:11PM Sadly, the first few instances in Cata where not what was promised in terms of difficulty...
Because well... I did get in late into beta and I didn't really try that hard. But the first 2 instances I did (and last) where pretty AOE lawl as usual. Sure it would have made my life as the tank easier to have some CC but with my luck... we had no form of reliable CC that worked there. (I swear I tried roots... but they where either immune or it broke in the time it took me to go to bear form...) But we still managed pretty fine,with occasional death here and there and the blowing of cooldowns on cooldown for me.
And I actually went into there before getting a group, out of curiosity, with the same priest friend. And we actually managed to clear the first few packs in the Throne of tides, and in BRD we actually managed to get to the second boss. That one was impossible at two of us though... The mechanic needed a 3rd person at least.
But no... all this to say, that sadly, I don't think the new instances are THAT hard.
Hopefully the other ones I didn't see or the heroic modes would be harder and give me more reasons to yell at the DPS lol...
