An early look at various Highmountain Tauren Druid forms.

Earlier today, we looked at racial mounts for Allied Races in Battle for Azeroth.

Bear Form

This raises a question from me. Does anybody know if druids who completed the legion order hall quests will be able to keep the lunarwing flight form? I've grown to like it over the expansion and would love to carry it over.

Yes! All class mounts obtained in Legion, at least to my knowledge will stay with you. They are not tied to artifacts or anything, just the character. I assume you'll also be able to go back and get them in later expansions.

Class mounts are class-wide, the only thing is that new druids need to talk to a certain NPC in Dreamgrove to activate the lunarwing form before they can use it. Other classes can just use the mount right off the mount journal as soon as they learn riding at lv 20.

What about Moonkin Form?

Wouldn't be surprised if they stayed the same lol. All races already have the same moonkin form :p

I wish they would do something with the Moonkin form although I guess there is not much you can do with that form other than adding adornments and the like.

Those antlered cats are kind of cute, the flight form looks like coming straight out of a totem pole :-) I am really curious if the Zandalari will be able to druids and I would perish in eternal bliss if they were given dinosaur forms.

Except for Tauren. I really don't understand why Blizzard doesn't give each Druid race a different Moonkin Form.

You're right, didn't know that. But still, sounds like Trolls had that horned Moonkin model too for a while as a "placeholder" until they just said "screw it, give them the same model as Alliance" so I wouldn't hold my breath. :s

They do all have different colors, still.

But for Moonkin mains, that still feels lackluster. In my opinion the only race that should use the default Moonkin model is Night Elf; every other race should have a more tailored model similarly to Tauren, with at least a different horn/antler design.

Yeah, I can't disagree with that. At the very least I could have a Gilneas emblem on my back like Swift flight form haha

      It's time for more battles as raid testing returns this weekend (and Thursday)! Both factions get to check the bosses out, as well as the opposing faction's bosses using the new flashback mechanic. We're getting both Heroic and Mythic tested this time around, with the first wing of LFR opening on Friday and staying open throughout the weekend.
      November 15 - 19 (source)
      On Thursday, November 15th and Friday, November 16th we will be conducting raid tests of the Battle of Dazar'alor. After testing has ended up Friday, we will open the first wing of Raid Finder.
      BOTH FACTIONS:
      Testing is open for both factions. However, for some bosses, raid members will temporarily re-live events as the opposite faction using a story flashback.
      Thursday, November 15th
      Stormwall Blockade - Heroic Battle of Dazar'alor
      13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)
      Jaina - Heroic Battle of Dazar'alor
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
      Friday, November 16th
      Opulence - Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor
      13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)
      King Rastakhan - Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
      Siege of Dazar'alor/Defense of Dazar'alor Raid Finder
      16:00 PST (19:00 EST, 1:00 CET)
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 120 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

      In the latest Method interview, we learned how the new Reaping affix will play out in Tides of Vengeance.
      In Battle for Azeroth, Blizzard brought Seasons to Mythic+. Infested was the first Seasonal affix inspired by G'huun. The affix will be soon replaced with Reaping in Season 2 that will start early next year.
      Affix Description Reaping Non-boss enemies are empowered by Bwonsamdi and periodically seek vengeance from beyond the grave. How Reaping Works
      Reaping was inspired by Battle of Dazar'alor and Bwonsamdi. Every 20% on the Enemy forces bar, Bwonsamdi will resurrect spirits of all the trash creatures you had killed up to that point and they will charge at you no matter where you're at. This happens a total of 5 times per dungeon. You will be in full control of when this occurs, so planning/adjusting your pulls will be crucial. One of the ideas they had with this was to change how you approach the dungeon. Blood Moon will rise whenever Bwonsamdi calls on his powers and there's also something cool that might happen after you lose the timer. You can also check out the video below, where the devs talk about the affix and upcoming changes to Necrotic.

      It's time to poke our friends over at exceL and get some hints and tips for Mythic+! It's up to you guys to dig up all the interesting info and ask the right questions, whether it's about the recent MDI Invitational, Mythic+ in general or even next season's new Reaping affix!
      As you'll remember, they rose all the way to the top in this year's Mythic Dungeon Invitational and claimed the grand prize, as well as more recently participated in the MDI All Stars Invitational at BlizzCon earlier this month and the org itself has been a core part of the scene built around multiple games since 2014, fielding teams in League of Legends, Street Fighter V, and more.
      Tthe Mythic+ team consists of Divinefield, Cirra, Ashine, Dorullkjell and Herudra, so submit your questions right here in the comments over the next 7 days and the awesome players of exceL's Angels will answer when we collect all of them.
      Have any questions for the M+ team? Come and ask them!

      It's a good day for solos it seems, as we now have a Mythic Helya kill, right after the amazing +11 Atal'Dazar! Durendil went into Trial of Valor on his own and faced the tentacles and light water splashes of Helheim and came out on top in what he describes as a fight that has everything he ever wanted from a solo encounter.
