Lately, I’ve been doubting my decision however many months ago to make my druid a Troll.
Racially, I think Taurens are more beneficial. War Stomp has such a quick cast time that it’s virtually impossible to interrupt, unlike Cyclone. I wouldn’t need the Herbalism boost, since I have Enchanting and Alchemy. The added stamina would probably be helpful.
I rarely use the Troll Berserk. Usually I pop it and Tree Form to Wrath spam someone to death when we’ve killed their partner. I’ve been meaning to macro it to something, but haven’t, so it’s useless. (Now I will, when I next think of it.) The reduced stun duration is probably more beneficial than I give credit for. I just found out that we have increased health regeneration, and I had forgotten about Beast Slaying because I don’t use it.
That War Stomp is what I get stuck on. It seems to outweigh all the Troll benefits in my mind. X.x
However, I don’t think I would love my Rhyvin as much if she were Tauren. She would be big, bulky, and have a tail. I love her humanoid, feminine figure and her long ears. I love her crazy hair and her colorful beast forms, however rarely I’m in them. Liking how your character looks is important; you don’t want to play a character you don’t like.
I’m really looking forward to Transmogrification. I think I’ll be using the Relentless gear. It’s the gear I wore on my Night Elf druid back on Boulderfist, when I first fell in love with my class. My female Troll body is so similar to the Night Elf body that with the helm on, there isn’t really that much difference.
**UPDATE December 9, 2013** I switched factions on my druid quite a while ago. She’s been a Night Elf since. **UPDATE**
