    Moonkin armor looks a TAD on the ridiculous side. The gathering goggles seem really cool though.

    Brewfest stuff? That means there's a good chance that MoP will be out before then...

    TAD rhymes with BAD

  5. #5
    The high quality of the moonkin armor makes the moonkin model look even more pixelated. Still hoping for a moonkin model update

    Hm. Not sure what I think about the codpiece and gloves for armored Moonkin form. I'll hold judgment until I see it in action, though.

    Edit: I completely agree with the comment above mine. Moonkin form looks extremely out-dated with that armor and is in serious need of an overhaul. I think that would make all the difference... that and a smaller.. groin guard.

  7. #7
    Rupture buff! /swoon

  8. #8
    Moar focus on Steady Shot, so glad I can keep my 2p T13 <3 Will be interesting to see if they change it for Cobra Shot as well though or if it's going to be a MM only change. Not enjoying the self-heal nerfs though, seems we will always be the class with the worst self heals in the game :<

    Great news! No Shaman changes! Yuppi!

    That hideous creature! The moonkin form needs to go NOW. Redesign that and stop delaying what shouldn't be delayed. We got absolutely NO new models or INTERESTING models for DS so stop with the B.S. and get stuff done already.

    Why does a moonkin need to dress up as a bear when he can just transform into one at will?

    Seriously? They put armor on the old moonkin model?

    Yeah, they should do that too, and with the travel form too :S

    I saw the moonkin armor and literally just busted out laughing, haha. Not saying it's bad but it looks hilarious XD

    Those moonkins look stupid as hell .__. Why not finally revamp those moonkins, and then add the armor? :C Or just provide an entirely new model for the improved form.

    Are you kidding me? Rip, the combo finisher that I feel defines the whole Feral PVP playstyle, is now a Guardian ability? REALLY?
