This Q&A is so much better then the mage Q&A I want to marry this one and have little baby Qs and As with it.
Regarding mounts and speed, there are 2 separate things : - being able to fly at 310% : it won't be a base ability, it'll only be available to those who already have a 310% mount. The only point is to avoid forcing druids who have such a mount to give up flight form for fast travel - a new flying form art for flying at 310%, ie redesigning a complete new form just for those who do have that ability. I'm a druid, i'll get a 310% in October at the latest, and i completely agree with Blizzard that it'd be stupid to design such a new form for that purpose. There are better things to spend time on.
im new tree models (when they get round to startin on them) shud be seasonal, green+bushy in summer, bare in winter, brown adn half nekkid in autum,a nd well w/e trees look liek in spring.
