I am a fan of the Druid. Enough said. I mostly play as a wolf/melee druid and find running around in animal form to be a blast. However, of late I have been wondering if more variety could be added to the mix ... I mean, the wolf is more like a rogue as far as being able to do sneak-attack damage and they do best been working with a group so that they can flank (much like how a wolf pack operates in the wild). The bear, on the other hand, is the barbarian/tank which uses its size and strength to brutalize the enemy and can pretty much stand on its own, for the most part. Upon seeing the Onyz Panther Hireling fight, and since I know there are cat lovers out there, AND knowing she is a fighter ... A thought came to me. Why not allow Druids to turn into large cats! This form would be Fighter based with the initial form a panther or lion and the secondary, stronger form a Razor Cat (since all the other types of cats are fiendish in origin and out of the question).
I would also suggest that there be other companions to choose from (or be assigned automatically depending on why animal form people choose) like a bear instead of just a wolf since I find a bear/dire bear running around with a wolf odd (consequently the large cat would also have a large cat companion). Not to mention, I find if irksome that an NPC Druid can have a bear companion and a player Druid cannot.
ALSO, can I suggest skins for the Druid companions, at least. Everyone runs around with a grey wolf. BORING ... Why not let them be Winter Wolves or Black Wolves or Spotted Wolves??? I mean, we can do it on LOTRO with Loremasters. Why not here?
