Choose Your Druid Bear and Cat Form Racial Tints on Character Creation Screen, Possible Tattoo Customization (Speculation)
The recent Shadowlands alpha build added character screen customization categories for Druid Bear Form and Cat Form. It looks like you'll be able to choose your Druid racial form appearance on the character creation screen, and we also look at some speculative data that tattoos could also be tied to Druids.
Note that this information is based on alpha datamining, which is subject to change before the game releases.
Druid Racial Forms on Character Creation Screen
The recent build added
two new entries
to "character customization category," which roughly translates to the slider options you see on the creation screen.
Currently, these categories are incomplete. Cat Form has no further information while Bear Form only has Night Elf Male / Female data and five options Black, Blue, White, Brown and Purple. This lines up with the names of the five tints for the Night Elf Bear Forms, strongly implying that you can change Bear Form tints unique to your race on the character creation screen. This is an important quality-of-life change, similar to other races having eye color customization split out from face customization, as currently Druid form tints are
dependent on hair or skin color
and it's not always intuitive how the two are linked.
However, there is no data linking artifact forms to these character customization category at the current time, just the base five racial options for Night Elves. Artifact weapon forms are handled a bit differently than Druid racial tints, unlocked through the transmog UI after transmogging to that specific artifact weapon, rather than hair or skin color like the racial tints. There is also no data tied to Bear / Cat Form for the other Druid races, although this could be explained by Blizzard focusing on certain races at a time.
Possible Druid Tattoos? (Speculation)
For this next part of the post, we're diving into more speculation. A few weeks back, we also datamined Night Elf body tattoo options, some of which closely-resemble some of the Bear Form tattoos. There are five tattoo options, lining up with the five Bear Form options.
Here's a comparison showing the markings on the current Night Elf bear and cat forms with a similar datamined tattoo option:
So where does that leave us? Malfurion Stormrage has a special set of tattoos that match in his humanoid and bear forms, so it would be interesting if these tattoos were available to Druids in their different forms as well, with each tattoo corresponding to a different color.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out in future builds, as Night Elf customization is still incomplete. It wouldn't be unreasonable of for Druids to receive some class-specific customization love, as
emphasizes class fantasy and we've already seen Death Knights get an eye glow revamp recently and Demon Hunters a slew of unique options, including tattoos and chest-revealing armor, in
. The zone of Ardenweald is also related to the lore of the Emerald Dream, a spirit realm Druids can easily visit, so the updates could fit thematically.
