The piece of artwork featured this week is a piece by Christian Inside, MonkeyfroG on deviantART. It’s a beautiful, full color depiction of his girlfriend’s Druid (name not given). I was at first surprised to see her referred to as a Druid, but then I recognized the Nordrassil shoulders. I’m guessing from the Merciless Gladiator’s War Staff she’s wielding that her robe is the Robe of the Elder Scribes, a beautiful garment dropped by Nightbane in Karazhan. These two items collectively indicate that she’s of the Balance persuasion, despite her otherwise strong resemblance to a Priest. This piece is particularly signficant since it points to the current problems with Moonkin itemization and such Druids being forced to wear cloth. Happily this a problem which should see some redress in Patch 2.3.
I love the level of detail the artist went to in depicting the Druid’s armor. If I could change one thing about the piece, however, I would have like to have seen the left side of the background be green since Druids leverage both Arcane (purple) and Nature (green) magics to restorative and destructive ends, possibly flipping the colors to provide better contrast against her hair and robes. Still, I imagine she uses this image as her desktop wallpaper and will for some time to come!
P.S. Thanks to an anonymous commentor for pointing out that her staff is the Season 2 Balance staff and not the healing staff from Magtheridon.
