    5. Race for druids: Pandaren

    We know, that druids have a limited race pool. I think that Pandaren could become druids in the next xpac after WoD. It would fit them. Tiger apperiance for Feral Druids, Ox or Panda apperiance for Guardian and standard Moonkin form for Moonkin, because no love for them No, seriously they could make a Crane apperiance (a fat one). Since Pandaran are a neutral race, it would work for both sides. Possible or just fantasy?

    Lorewise they have no connection to druidism, at all, since they sundering cut them off to any and all druids at the time. Technically they could, now, but I don't see Blizz changing that, personally.

    Undead druids or bust. I want a bloody skeleton cat, plague bear, haunted tree, and some kind of rotting chicken.

    Didn't one of the devs (I think GC) say around the MoP announcement that they considered this, but a bear that turns into a bear seemed weird?

    Or a wolf that turns into a cat? Like... Why can't Worgen druids just preform all their catform abilities in caster form. Having to shift into a cat form seems... silly.
    Reduce- Iconic class abilities, complexity and meaningful rotations, usefulness of any one class in a raid group
    Reuse- A continent from 3 expansions ago, a story arch from 3 games ago, characters that would otherwise be dead
    Recycle- A beaten to death plot-line, the nostalgia goggles for TBC, bossfight mechanics that make patchwerk seem complex
    The three R's of Warlords of Draenor and that doesn't even mention flying, #savekarabor, blizzard store, tier to tier ilvl skips.

    Cinder Kitty, Baby Blizzard Bear, Moonkin Hatchling and an Ancient Protector (the full sized giant ones, gnomes are odd that way).



    On the down side, nobody would play anything else.

    Nah..a bear shifting in another bearform is not weirder as a wolf shifting in a cat, bar, moonkin. or cows also. cows turning into cats and bears...or moonkins. But for pandaren, i feel strange thinking of them as druids. they seem to have no connections to this at all. they have enough cool stuff, without it (thinking of monks especially). I doubt blizz would change it. I think, it would not fit withm them (worgen also not so much, but that is a question of how to play it with the lore and all this). Wolfs turning into cats are at least a little more weird.

    gnome-druids? Sweetness-overload, if such a little, babykitty attacks you with a nice little purr, trying to bite you with it's first teeth. Oww...as a horde-player i would try to tame one. instantly. and cuddle it. (and feed with other gnomes which are not druid.hah.)

    That is the point. While you're laughing at the gnome druid they'll bite your ankle clean off.

    I would expect Human and Blood Elf Druids long before the Pandaren.

    Eh, makes more sense than most other races.

    Maybe a group of Pandaren start hanging around their Furbolg cousins and get in touch with nature.

    Am I the only person who wants to be a Dwarf Druid?

    Although I would personally prefer human and blood elf druids for myself; I see no issue with panda druids as others have been stating. Druidism seems to go with their outlook more than quite a few other classes, such as rogue.

    I think people put too much into the class limitations. As players, we are literally learning from scratch, and after the revamp, at a point in time -after- deathwing broke loose through Azeroth questing. All you really need is a trainer in the zone. We train from scratch. We (used to) learn every spell from a trainer.

    Even the lore issues have exceptions in lore already, whether it be playable undead priests or an undead paladin npc.

    Race/class combos that seem more absurd actually have greater roleplay value for those into that; such as the undead holy/light users; or say a night elf warlock ... which even though he was a 'demon hunter', Illidan himself has proven it is your determination and dedication that allows you to train, learn, and wield the power you wish.


    so much negativity towards things being open or people playing how they want, when it doesn't affect the individual or even the game as a whole. Like a bunch of spoiled 4 year olds

    For practicality reasons alone, Pandaren would be the next Druids, if that's ever the case. Shared race means one set of forms to work on.

    I don't really care what races get to be Druids next. Just saying from a lore standpoint those are the two races I would expect to gain Druids first. Maybe if the Orcs didn't piss all over Cenarius they'd have a chance.
