Welcome back to our resident “Bad Aunt” no problem is to big or small for them to tackle. Many poor souls out there in Azeroth have no vent for their issues or concerns, but now thanks to Emerald Dreamers you have a helping hand or a shoulder
on. Send in your problems to email@example.com
I think I may be going mad Emerald Dreamers, I am a lovely healing tree but sometimes I’m not, sometimes I feel that there are many different versions of me, one violent and aggressive, one that can run fast and another that can sneak about, one that can even swim. I’m a little lost to what this all means and scared I may have multiple personality disorder. Can you help explain what’s happening to me?
Frightened tree – Moonglade
Dear tree, although this may sound to you like multiple personality disorder I can assure you that what you are suffering from is very common for all Druids.
Let me explain. You have the option to be all of the things above, a travel cat, sneaky cat, ferocious bear, flying bird, super lazor chicken and even a sealioncowthing. This all really depends on your personality, I can see here you found a happy form as a tree.
This problem has probably arisen from external pressure, maybe one of your friends has pushed you into changing who you are for Icecrown, perhaps they need a tank or a damage dealer to progress further into the Citadel and because you are such a versatile class have recommended that you give it a go.
The second cause could probably be that you have been healing so much the
more vicious side of you wants to get out, the animal within wishes to scratch an itch.
Overcoming the problem
I always advise to give into your desires, if you are experiencing this urge to change in increased frequency I recommend letting go and exploring the benefits, just remember that this is all perfectly normal.
If however you are happy as a tree be sure to avoid the peer pressure you may have recently encountered, if necessary leave them far behind and join a lovely guild called Forsaken Enlightenment who I have heard would give their (HAPPY NOW NEC!!) left leg for a tree!
Be warned, there are many side effects when selecting a form you may not be used to, please see the list below for more details.
Sexual appetite: If you decide on a cat form you may develop the tendency of humping random strangers legs, or more worryingly for them, forcing relations if they happen to be lying down.
Suicidal tendencies: Many druids once discovering shape shifting will often attempt to plummet from great heights incorporating all forms into the jump. This can often end up in sudden death and is not advised.
Cannibalism and eggs: If a Moonkin form is selected be wary of people that look at you hungrily. You may also find that you might lay an egg.
Stupidity: Deciding on a bear form may mess with your intelligence slightly, be wary of attacking to many enemies at the same time, it could lead to death.
Cowardice: In situations of possible death, a druid that has mastered shape shifting has the abilities to live almost every time. While this is wonderful as a druid it can lead to everybody else hating you.
I hope this has answered your concerns.
