Now the World of Warcraft 4.0.1 patch update is out of the way, albeit with many problems, bugs and issues, a new piece of information has been datamined by the guys at MMO-Champion. The new, highly anticipated Tree of Life model has come out into the wild.
Now, the image above might make some of you drool with excitement, others maybe be completely and utterly dismayed. Quoting a soundbite from Cirocoo of Rexxar, “Hunchback of Notre Lame” seems to describe the new form down to a tree.
If you are looking at the image and also thinking, the posture looks familiar, you are right. I’m not sure whether it will be in the final build (I sure hope not), but the new tree of life form shares the same skeleton and animations as the male orc. You can view a YouTube video at the end of the article that confirms this.
Some are complaining that the new model looks a lot more masculine compared to that of the older treant model that will be scrapped come Cataclysm. Baring in mind that tree form is now a cooldown.
What are your views on the new model? I quite like it, but I do agree that it needs some work along with its own unique set of animations and skeleton. So Blizzard, Moonkin, Travel and Aquatic Form next? Yes please.
