I'm probably in the minority here but I think the new zandalari troll druid forms are pretty hideous (and I generally love dinosaurs) but these look all kinds of wrong. I'm all over the highmountain but these...no thanks haha!

I think they'll look MUCH better once they're animated and not stuck in their T pose.

Siggy under construction!

Agreed. Same goes for the Ankylo form. Hopefully we'll see something within a couple of builds :)

I absolutely love them, can't wait to see them animated! :D More reptilian things are always a plus in my book.

The Zandalari "bear" form actually has its animations now. Can probably expect the "cat" form to have them next build.


You can check them out on the build post from when the bear model was first datamined. Somehow, WoWhead hasn't updated their model viewer with the animated bear, but MMO-C has.

Well, they're using the bear skeleton, which works well enough. But, running, from behind. Is it just me or does that.....

humans just have a habit of of seeing patterns and recognizable shapes where there really aren't any.

that being said, yes it looks like someone drew a frog face on the tank form's butt. And now every guardian zandalari player will keep staring at it against their own better judgement.

Yep, pareidolia! One of my favorite words, and an interesting insight into the brain

But, let's just pretend it was on purpose and is like the foresters in India who wear masks on the back of their heads while out in the wilds in order to confuse tigers.

Definitely a face. I took a few hours to draw up a detailed visual for others to see it, in the event that it might be a tad bit difficult to see.

Clearly, it is a hint that we will be able to tame seals.

Reminds me of the clown face on spiky purple ravagers.
