    Can't decide

    Hello Druid community. I want to make a druid but cannot decide.

    I like nelf lore and aesthetics, but dislike their casting animations.
    I love the way tauren look, and the casting animations but am not sure about the bulkiness and I kind of want an alliance druid (not important though..)
    I like the way worgen look, but hate their casting animations.

    I'm mostly going for PVE gunna go as heals/feral dps.
    Suggestions?
    Can you also post a picture of the race you suggest as a druid aswell?

    You'll only need to put up with racial-based spell animations for roughly 8 levels till you get Cat Form.
    Unless you want to heal...

    Just basing on what you wrote...

    Scratch trolls and taurens since you would prefer alliance.

    Aesthetics and looks are more or less one in the same, so you like both the ways worgen and night elves look, and you also dislike both casting animations. However, you mentioned you like night elf lore also.

    Night elves- pros: 2, cons: 1.
    Worgen- pros: 1, cons: 1.

    Do you really need help with this?

    If you're asking about what would be best for PvE, chances are you won't be in a position where the difference between racials actually matter. That said, go with what you like more, which currently seems to be night elves.

    Well if you're going to play PVE as a feral dps, then worgen is the way to go due to their racial being superior to the night elf one - 1% dodge does nothing for you as a cat, while 1% extra crit is pretty nice, along with a 2nd speed increase ability.
    ...And no offence, but worgen cats look better.

    Tauren druid ofc.

    Sunny and positive starting location and home city, good lore, nice casting animation. And they are so cute!

    If you plan hardcore pve, you will have to choose troll or worgen instead, ofc.

    The Worgen sprint has saved my arse many times, plus the 1% Crit is useful for both healing and DPS.

    Worgens do look silly in a dress I'll admit, and that's why I use Two Forms and stay Human when pottering about in Stormwind. Best of both worlds.

    I personally think any Worgen in a robe looks like an amazing caster. Go Worgen and just get a leather robe. You'll be set.

    I love my Worgen Mage...

    Oh, and I almost forgot. Worgen bears and cats look so awesome.

    nelf is where its at. I have both a nelf and a worgen and the snorting thing gets old really quickly.

    Only proper druid is Tauren druid!
    And as Fianna sad trolls have better racial for pve HC

    If you choose to go Feral, you won't ever have to worry about casting animations. Worgen have some very cool looking feral forms. Trolls do too, but they are not for everyone.

    Go with what you want, racials arent very important unless you do high end PvE or PvP. And need to min/max everything.

    I for one would love to play Night elf as my druid, but all my friends and so on have always been horde. So I ended up with a tauren instead.
    Then again i'm a healer, so I just got Kalytha's Haunted Locket. Voila, i'm a night elf (female only though). And I have Leyaras locket, but that has a short duration.

    I probably use more time in a disguise, than looking as a tauren :P

    Troll Druid Cat form
    Troll Druid Bear form
    Troll Druid Flight form

    Worgen Druid Cat form
    Worgen Druid Bear form
    Worgen Druid Flight form

    I'm too lazy to do the same with Tauren and Nigh Elf :P

    But imho: Night Elf > Worgen > Tauren> .... > Troll

    Night Elf
    pro: aesthetically pleasant
    pro: pretty architecture
    pro: lore
    pro: females

    con: casting animations (tho I like female one)
    con: "common"
    con: quite old (tho updated) form models

    Worgen
    pro: brand new forms, savage and fresh
    pro: interesting lore and nature
    pro: two forms and racials
    pro: no need for a external mount

    con: horrible casting animations
    con: male druid in a dress - ridiculous
    con: forms similar to Tauren ones

    Tauren
    pro: climatic
    pro: gear looks amazing on Tauren
    pro: quite nice casting animation

    con: bulky
    con: common

    Troll
    pro: original flight form
    pro: er... 2nd choice for Horde?
    pro: casting animation if you insist

    con: other forms (psychodelic cat and bear on drugs...)
    con: da language is drivin' ma insane, mon.
    con: quite rare (tho it can be pro)

    As for me (when I created my Druid) I went for Night Elf (made Tauren as well but he didn't get past lvl 10). It feels just "right" to be Nelf. Worgen are also nice. More aggressive and savage than calm Nelves. For Feral they are perfect as their cat form is fantastic. But for a healer - I dislike those arm flapping.

    Night elf if you love having useful racials. I honestly prefer being a worgen for pve because you get to be human and a wolf. They have the best looks for an alliance druid.

    tauren got such a shitty moonkin form. Otherwise its all good as long as u dont go female. Nelfs and worgen have good lookings forms and looks good in armor (most important cuz u gonna watch your character whole time)

    Go Worgen for Alliance looks are for irreverent. Performance is all that matters and night elf brings nothing to the table.
