    Should probably note that these are all for void form; you don't levitate when just casting in shadowform.

    I wasn't particularly impressed by the other "new casting animations" (which are mostly unarmed melee animations in between casts).

    But these, with that levitate and new void effect, look pretty good. For once, we didn't get the short end of the stick.

    uh, my forsaken shadow priest turns like voidwalker blue in void form...

    and her base shadowform is dark dark purple with shadowy flames.

    Now THAT I like. It looks like the new half-void creatures from the PTR, which have a much nicer effect than the void form from the gifs above.

    i'm thinking mine is the correct stuff, and it's just that forsaken females have the only correct ones right now.

    cause my shit looks so much better. also, the old see through shadowform blinks weirdly like it's broken. so i know my base shadowform is the right one.

    hopefully they take the slow fall out of voidform. would be pretty funny dispersing on maiden with the bomb and taking a year to land back down

    I love that they levitate!

    I don't think the character is actually levitating (waterwalking, slowfalling), it's just a visual effect of voidform.

    i just checked, it does actually slowfall you.

    it should just be a cosmetic floating imo. i hope they do that and don't remove the levitate entirely.

    Oh well, definitely, then. Voidform is part of the rotation, slowfalling is not.

    Does it waterwalk too? Perhaps they're temporarily using a hidden version of the real levitate buff to achieve the visual effect.

    at the moment on the ptr it is exactly like levitate is cast on the player. you slow fall and can walk on water in voidform like this:

    Then I can only assume they were like "hey, how would it look if they floated while in voidform?" and did a quick copypaste of the effects of levitate to voidform.

    Void Torrent STILL doesn't actually use the dagger like the description says it does? Yes, that one little detail has me disappointed in spite of all the other changes.

    If you have Shadowy friend glyphed, stuff looks different for whatever reason. Probably part of not yet implemented.

    i actually don't have the shadowy friends glyph. that must be what's causing it to break, not applied to other beings yet.

    It would have been far more interesting if we stabbed ourselves with the dagger, which was, if I'm not mistaken, the original idea.

    Entering voidform by putting Xal'atath through our heart, now that would be metal.

    I absolutely despise levitating while in Void Form. It seems more and more like the D3 Archon.
