Fairy cattle dance form!!!

“The Insular Celts held deer as supernatural animals, “fairy cattle” that were herded and milked by a localised and benevolent fairy giantess (a bean sìdhe) in each district, who could shift shape to that of a deer.”

My Irish blood is part of the reason I was first drawn to a druid in Warcraft, as I have always had an unexplainable connection with Celtic folklore and the Druidic tradition.

And so it goes… Stags doing an Irish jig!

Dunno about the music WOW Insider decided to add to the preview, but hey…

You have to hand it to Blizzard – regardless of the ‘questionable’ quality of life changes they’re making to druids in MoP, the cosmetic changes are… just. FREAKING. Awesome.

Can anyone say Free Willy?

Free Willy!

Additionally, my *ahem* age shows when I see the form below and can’t help thinking of He-Man and his trusty Battlecat!

Battlecat – RAWR

    I love new cat’s armor and stag’s dance form. Finally something nice for druids. I am afraid that many people will reroll druids just because of cosmetic changes. It’s already too many of them and only handful are good at what they do

      @ Kate – yes I agree, but it does take a considerable amount of effort to play any of the druid specs well, so hopefully we’ll just see an increase in stags hanging around capital cities. Our raid team runs with 3-4 highly skilled druids of different specs currently, so we’d have no room for any more regardless!

    Psh – If you cant remember Battlecat and Man-at-arms and orro and all the other goodness of he-man, then your a young whipper snapper and should get OFF MY LAWN!

    Are the bears getting an armour too?
