Druids promise to be fulfilled
It has been asked for, it has been discussed and it has been promised but now its official druid bear and cat forms will be getting a much needed update in the next major content patch 3.2.
Zarhym posted on the wow NA forums (source) confirming that the new skins will be added and even offered a sneak peek at the new bear skins.
Druids, especially the feral ones, will be rejoicing at this cosmetic change. Maybe the next step is to offer customisation so that each druid looks like an individual.
