As far as druid bloggers go, I seem to be in the minority of those who are in favour of having tree form be a cooldown. I’ve been thinking about what kind of cooldowns we could have and I thought it would be neat if we could turn into different types of trees who would get different abilities. Take the whole shapeshifting aspect of druids to a whole new level. I think if we could have these abilities as cooldowns, more people would see things my way.
Shapeshift: Giant Redwood
The druid turns into a Giant Redwood, lifting all allies in range hundreds of feet into the air and out of danger. Instant.
This would be like the Priest’s new Leap of Faith ability on steroids. Did a Void Zone just spawn on top of you and your friends? Save them with this! Probably best not to use it in fires though.
Shapeshift: Bamboo Palm
The druid turns into a Bamboo Palm, removing poisons from all raid members in range. Removes poisons in range once every 2 seconds for 8 seconds. Instant.
Fun fact: The Bamboo Palm is one of the best plants for removing pollutants and chemicals from the air.
Shapeshift: Willow Tree
The druid turns into a Willow Tree. All allies in range are temporarily protected from harm. Lasts 8 seconds.
Power Word: Barrier has nothing on the Willow Tree.
Shapeshift: Poppy Field
The druid covers the battlefield in poppies, putting all her enemies to sleep for 10 seconds or until they take damage.
Wikipedia says that poppies don’t actually put people to sleep. However, since I was a child, The Wizard of Oz has told me otherwise. I know who I’m going to believe.
Shapeshift: Apple Tree
The druid changes into an apple tree, providing fruit for all her allies. The fruit gives a bonus to all base stats. Can only be used out of combat.
By now I think we’re all sick of fish feasts. Minor glyphs can be used to change this form into a Pear or Peach tree.
Shapeshift: Banyan Tree
The druid turns into a Banyan Tree, rapidly covering the field of battle and impaling all enemies in range with her roots. 10-second channel.
Fun fact: The roots of Banyan trees grown downwards from the branches to the ground. The oldest Banyans can cover over 3 acres of space.
I suppose this ability isn’t very heal-y is it? But it would be awesome.
Shapeshift: Magnolia Tree
The druid transforms into a Magnolia Tree.
Why? Because they’re pretty, and we deserve to have a pretty tree form.
What kind of tree would you like to be?
