    Fandral’s Flamescythe

    the fiery Cat Form from Fandral’s Flamescythe if you have collected the weapon from Firelands on Normal, Heroic, or Timewalking difficulties

    Do you need the actual weapon on the druid or is the appearance collected enough?
    Me thinks Chromie has a whole lot of splaining to do!

    I suspect you just need the appearance. It's possible you might have to transmog the scythe, too, but I doubt it. If it's allowing the Legion druid artifact appearances, then it's probably just enough to have the appearance.

    (guessing) What with alts being a thing, I think in the collection is enough. Otherwise I would have to gather the actual weapon on all four Druids which is just a bore. I have had the toy since forever ago, so I am not overly concerned about myself, since I would just pop that if I can’t hair-dresser/mog it.

    IIRC it was tied to the item itself being equipped , should be part of the customization options in shadowlands though

    Just the appearance. I vendored the weapon ages ago and still have the option to mog firekitty on the beta/PTR.
    My greatest fear is that one day, my MMO-Champion ignore list will run out of space.

    Sold the staff ages ago, got the firecat skin in the barbershop in Beta.

    Do you need to get the scythe on a Druid, or just on any class that can wield it and add its mog to your collection?

    There is a toy called Fandral's Seed Pouch that gives druids fire kitty form.

    That's kind of irrelevant at this point if you can just change to that appearance in the barber shop.

    On topic, I unblocked the appearance with another class and my Druid can still choose the fire cat form in the barber shop.

    afaik, Once you have looted the weapon and most like equip it you gain access to the form on the barber. Cant be 100% sure if the beta / ptr just gives you it tho have to wait till prepatch.

    That doesn't count for the barbershop, though. You have to have gotten the weapon on some class that can use staves.

    can confirm this (my shaman had the staff appearance unlock) and my druid was able to use it(firecat form) once i copied my shaman over to the beta but not before

    What's more important is this: Why haven't they updated the combat animations on this fiery Cat? They don't look like the updated animations found on ALL other Cat Form skins.

    Firecat was a gimmick you could only use while wielding a weapon several expansions out of date, or temporarily with a very rare toy. Updating it had zero priority.

    That’s an interesting assessment at this point, because a LOT of players are going to get this skin. Previously, it demanded some dedicated farming to get it - now, you just need to get that weapon, which has a high drop rate when compared to the toy.

    So it won’t be a gimmick anymore. Especially since Blizzard featured this skin in their promotion material for the cosmetic updates.

    Which is likely why it is written in the past tense.

    In other news, I have begun taking English lessons. I obviously need them.
