EQII Druids Grove recently conducted an interview with Steve Danuser (Community Manager) and EJ Moreland (a mechanics designer who works on the spell system). They allowed their community to come up with the 10 most asked questions and the end result was a great interview. Here is a snippet:
Will druids have the capability to change their form, similar to the wolf form or tree form in EQ, and if so will this be restricted to wardens or furies in any way? I.e. wardens changing to only trees, furies changing to only wolves. Understandably being in the early stages of tuning this question lends to a vague answer. If you can elaborate a little on some of the spell ideas it'll clear up some myth and curiosities that have been dancing around the boards.
EJ: We're planning to give relevant (in terms of lore) forms to the druid subclasses. These will probably be implemented as upgraded soloing buffs, and not something a druid would use while in a party (unless there was more than one priest in the group). I don't want to give details on those forms yet, as they may change before ship.
