Hello fellow druids, I wanted to suggest something, and I believe many out of you there might love it aswell. We druids are known for shapeshifting, and instantly travelling accros the server/world. We have instant flight. But start of 6.0 As we all know no Flying. So here goes my suggestion.
I want blizzard to buff Travel form!. And how should the buffs be? while it's still fair!. Well it should have an out of combat passive ability which increases run speed so we are free from mounting ground mounts. Here are some examples for explain how I think about it.
Scenerio 1 :
When a druid out of combat shapeshifts into travel form, the druid gets increased movement speed depending on your riding skills.
Scenerio 2 :
When the druid is in combat vs mobs or pvp, and shapeshifts into travel form, the druid will only have 40% movement speed without any increase, But after leaving combat +3 secs *as mounting takes 3 sec for other people* the travel form's passive ability will kick which will raise the 40% to your riding skill.
Scenerio 3: A druid out of combat who has shapeshiftet into travel form and got buffed movementspeed who enteres combat Does not get REDUCED movement speed. Since if you were mounted up and hit combat, You will most likely not run slower. Therefore since you weren't in combat to begin with, you don't get hurt by the reduce movement speed. unless you leave shapeshift for self heal and shapeshift again then it would result in scenerio 2.
Thanks for those 3 scenerio, I can clearly say that it wouldn't be OP at all, it would just make druids feel like real druids, that we can shapeshift without having to trust on a Mount. We were unique on this part. And now i can't see why we should lose this benefit. Since we will all have ground mounts until 6.1
So who more agree's on this? should i suggest it? and how exactly do i do that. the ingame is limited as hell :/
For keep discussing this suggestion, I have decided to post it on MMO and WoW-Europe, here are the link :
