Hello Turtle WoW community!
I've been enjoying the deep and immersive experience that Classic WoW offers, especially on this server. As a long-time Druid player, I've always appreciated the diversity and uniqueness of our forms. Today, I'd like to suggest a few Druid Glyphs that would further enhance our experience by providing more lore-friendly and fun aesthetic options.
1. Glyph of the Ancient Protector (Night Elf only)
Replacement Option 1: Restoration Druid Tree Form
Rationale: Druids channel the power of nature. Ancient Protectors and Tree Ents are both deeply tied to Night Elf lore. This glyph would offer Night Elf Druids an ancient, venerable, yet smaller form that aligns with the lore of nature's guardians. As a healer, channeling the energies of an Ancient Protector embodies the essence of safeguarding allies.
Replacement Option 2: Bear Form
Rationale: Just as the Bear form symbolizes protection and sturdiness, a miniaturized Ancient Protector can act as a bulwark, shielding allies and taking hits. Its solid wooden form mirrors the steadfast nature of a tank.
2. Glyph of the Thresher
Replacement: Aquatic Form
Rationale: When we think of fast, agile creatures of the deep, threshers come to mind. Sleek and designed for speed, a Thresher form would not only be an aesthetic treat but would also represent the swiftness Druids have in the water.
3. Glyph of the Jungle Raptor
Replacement: Cat Form
Rationale: Raptors, with their sharp talons and predatory instincts, resonate well with the swift, DPS nature of the Cat form. Also, for those Druids who are more attuned to the raw, primal energy of the jungle, this glyph offers a fantastic thematic alternative.
4. Glyph of the Owl
Replacement: Travel Form (Ground)
Rationale: Although not granted the gift of true flight, this glyph allows Druids to assume the form of a majestic owl, hovering just above the ground. This form speaks to the wisdom and watchful nature of the owl, and while it may not soar into the skies, its silent presence on the ground offers a serene and unique mode of travel.
