New Cat Forms

July 2, 2009

Due to the insanity that is my life right now, I have yet to delve completely into devouring the Patch 3.2 Notes. Needless to say, the thing I am most looking forward are the newly redesigned Feral Druid forms for both Night Elves and Tauren, and for both our bear-y best friends and we felines.

My first reaction to the new Night Elven kitty cat forms was: “YES! I can be a PINK cat!”! I have, quiet honestly, always wanted to be a pink cat. But after some thought, I was truly on the fence whether I really liked these new forms or not. I don’t know why I need to wear little bracers or why I have bells around my neck, and I was unsure if I liked all the color combinations. I was starting to feel like the Tauren got the better end of the staff on this one.

But as soon as I got onto the Public Test Realms I finally got to sink my claws into the new forms, first hand. After spending several hours with my future self, I am decidedly very happy about the changes. I have really only played around with the pink coloration. I had planned on playing with the other colors a bit, but I am so loving the pink kitty and have been traveling the world with her to see how different scenery and lighting affects how pink she really looks. I, of course, took many screenshots along the way, and will share them with you here.

If you are also PTR-ing it up, you can find me on Broxigar, both as “Kathoid” and as “Druidkitty”.

Woo. That was exhausting!

So as you can hopefully see, the lighting really affects the coloring of this new pink Kitty option. I will definetly be sticking with the pink once Patch 3.2 goes live!

If you would like me to check out a different color for you, or would like to see the Pink Kitty travel to your favorite destination in Azeroth, send me an email at DruidKitty AT gmail DOT com!

  1. As I suspected, the new forms look even more awesome in-game. 🙂


  2. I agree that the horde got the better looking catform, I gotta say that their bear form is ridiculously stupid looking. All you gotta do is look at the head and know it’s a cow with a bear body. All in all the new forms are a step up and I cant seem to decide if I wanna be a white or dark blue cat/bear

  3. thanks for the little preview, looks awesome! i’m looking forward to new forms in the patch so much so that i don’t even care about the nerfs..


  4. I have always wanted to level a druid kitty (I really like the idea of being an animal and fighting things tooth and claw :D) and these new forms have pushed me over the edge. I’m gunna level one now. 😀


  5. Nice!


  6. I finally got onto the PVE public test server yesterday and I must say that I’m quite impressed with the new druid froms for Night Elves. My pretty white kitty/bear were amazing! The movements of both of them are very fluid and having rounded edges is so much more pleasing to the eye. Still waiting on my Taurn to transfer in order to get a good look at the other side as well, but again I hold high expectations that will no doubt be filled. I must say though, I do like the pictures I’ve seen of the Horde cat/bear colors – with the more “earthy” tones than shades of purple and pink that the Night Elves have… at least they didn’t make any of the shades green lol.
