The Daily Grind: Are you a fan of shapeshifter classes in MMOs?


Albion Online’s upcoming Wild Blood update includes a new weapon with a unique attribute: It allows players to shapeshift into specific critters. Also golems. It’s weird and fun.

But as cool as it is, I’ve never been much of a fan of playing shapeshifters. The first time I ever saw shapeshifting in an MMO was Ultima Online’s polymorph spell, but I didn’t really try to get into shapeshifters until World of Warcraft. It didn’t work, mind you. I liked mucking around with my partner’s Druid, but I didn’t really want to look at cat/bear butt. Tree butt passed muster, but even so, I never got into the Druid specifically because of the shapeshifting. I’ve never been able to enjoy my LOTRO Beorning either. And now that I think about it, I haven’t ever gravitated toward those types of characters in all my years of MMOs, even though I do like the concept. Huh.

Are you a fan of shapeshifter classes in MMOs? Which MMO offers the best example?
