Cataclysm Bonus Model Update - New Tree of Life Form!
We're not going to sleep yet! We've got what appears to be a new model for the druid's
Incarnation: Tree of Life
form, possibly still a work-in-progress! Since it is no longer a permanent form and is instead a temporary shapeshift, Blizzard has stated that they want to make it more special and exotic. This is definitely a step in...
direction. As a resto druid going on my fifth year, I personally consider this quite a welcome step up from the scraggly ol' treant of the days past. I can only hope one day that Blizzard allows us to choose our shapeshift form skins independently. And hey - maybe we'll get that
update after all!
Get your "HULK SMASH!" shapeshift macros ready, boys and girls. Don't forget to click on a model to check it out in our 3D model viewer!
The Flash versions of these models are now available!

Bloodbathed Frostbrood Vanquisher in 3D!
In this last patch, we've been able to find the model for the
Reins of the Bloodbathed Frostbrood Vanquisher
This one's a beauty. You earn it for completing the 10-player version of
Glory of the Icecrown Raider (10 player)
. The evidence suggests that the 25-player version will reward a
Icebound Frostbrood Vanquisher
, for which we don't have a model yet. You can be sure it'll be here as soon as we do!
