I was lucky enough to have the guild craft the 378 leather caster boots for me last night, and within five minutes I was complaining. I’m not an ungrateful druid, honest. They have perfect stats, now endowed with a delicious lavawalker enchant, and I’m very happy with them.
It’s just that… they have no toes.
So I reluctantly turned my helm back on, so I could have a critical look at the whole set. I don’t have 4 pieces of t11, but I do have 378 clones in non-tier slots, so this is the same look. I’ve got mixed feelings about it.
Things I like:
I also like the asymmetrical helm, and the tiny plant/fire details, especially in the helm and shoulders.
Things I’m a little more unsure about:
Come on. Tauren, trolls and worgen don’t even display the toe part of the footwear, so this toe-less boot thing is just for night elf druids. Thanks. I’m all for being at one with nature, but I think this just looks silly.
Things I hate:
I get what they are going for here, the white-hot centre of the volcano-tree-thing that is the druid. But it just looks broken. Maybe it’s because I’ve played with things like WoW Modelviewer, where the textureless objects are white, but this looks unfinished to me. Despite the other things I like about the helm, it stays switched off for me.

And a small twirl for the cameras:
What are your thoughts? Am I really just an ungrateful druid?
