    carved ogre idol on a moonkin now days

    one little question,
    i know at the time that druid moonkins shift breaks the ogre costume.
    but now days moonkins have an option to use the glyph of stars which let them keep the humanoid form.

    i was wondering if it works also on a druid in moonkin form using that glyph and under the ogre costume.


    does triggering the "carved ogre idol" and shifting into moonkin form or first shifting into moonkin form and then triggering the "carved ogre idol" keeps you as an ogre or breaks the ogre costume / the moonkin form ?

    Astral form is a moonkin form so shifting to it will cancel costume, if it is doing without glyph.
    But just guessing.

    astral form is the glyphed moonkin form ,
    my question is , can some one test it ?,
    using the carved ogre idol for the ogre humanoind looks and then switch to astral form (moonkin + glyph) that suppose to keep the humanoind form of the druid (now ogre) and play as a full moonkin ?

    would be cool to play an ogre druid if thats true.

    Astral form is moonkin form with skin modifier, all other characteristics should remain unchanged.
    So shifting might cancel the effect, same as it does with Mirror.

    I think its stupid druids cant keep there "vanity" look items. Everyone else comes to raids as smite (it stays for moonkins NOT ferals so.. probs be nerfed soon!) nogg, dev fish and its like.. why cant druids have it? we cant use them in rated Bgs or arena anyway. so whats the harm its a vanity item for lols.

    it's because the effects of those items are classified as shapeshifts, which conflicts with our own shapeshifts. if they want to change this, they should reclassify our shapeshift forms as stances.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    pretty much the only thing i hate about my druid

    i love all the model changing items, and will rarely use my original model on my shaman

    There are only two vanity items that works with incarnation/moonkin/astral form for Balance and Resto.

    One that transforms you into a tauren: wowhead. com/item=86568

    and other of Scholomance: wowhead. com/item=88566/krastinovs-bag-of-horrors

    The Leyara's locket used to work on cataclysm, but now shift back when you enter in Moonkin Form

    Sorry, cant post links.

    It's a real shame, because in the MoP Beta, Astral Form worked exactly like Shadowform i.e. you kept your disguises whilst shapeshifted.

    Blizzard literally went out of their way to break it.
