Patch 10.2 cosmetic changes allow Druids to customize their Moonkin Form

World of Warcraft patch 10.2 is bringing in an absolute boatload of Druid customizations, and their Moonkin Form is getting some love in the form of brand-new cosmetic options. Moonkin Form has usually been sort of ignored whenever shiny new forms were introduced to the game; but with patch 10.2, Druid players will finally get to customize that form to create something truly unique.

Using a system similar to the Worgen or Dracthyr customizations, where the humanoid form is separated from the “bestial” one, players will have a separate pane to configure their Moonkin Form. To make the updates, they’ll need to get themselves to a barbershop in a capital city and jump into a chair. There, Druid players will need to select the Moonkin icon in the top right corner, where they’ll find two tabs: “body options” and “adornment options.”

This type of implementation leaves the door open for the developers to add new customization options at a later date — but for now, let’s take a look at what we’re getting for Moonkin Form in patch 10.2.

Moonkin Body Customization Options

These are the main customization options, dictating the general color and shape of your Moonkin form.

Full Transformation: Choosing this option sets you to the default appearance for your character’s race.

Feather Color: This option lets you select the base color for your Moonkin body. There are three colorways available to all players at launch, but there’s a fourth color locked behind a drop in the upcoming Amir’drassil raid, from Tindral Sageswift. The options are:

Horns: Have you ever felt your antlers were too tall, or not tall enough? Well, you can finally customize them to your own preference:

  • Stag High
  • Stag Low
  • Grand High
  • Arched
  • Swirl
  • Grand Low

Horn & Beak Color: You’ll be able to choose between six horn and beak colors. They’re grouped as a highlight/lowlight pairing in a range of warm and cool options.

Beak: “What my Moonkin really needs is a bigger beak,” you’ve surely thought to yourself at some point. If that’s the case, you’re in luck, because beaks will have four options to choose from:

  • Parrot
  • Medium
  • Raptor
  • Parakeet

Eyebrows: Elf eyebrows have long been a point of discussion (ha!), with them frequently clipping through various helms. Moonkin can now get in on that action with a variety of fluffy feathery eyebrows to choose from:

  • None
  • Medium Straight
  • Small Droop
  • Short Straight
  • Long Droop
  • Very Short
  • Long Straight

Whiskers: More like mutton-chops, but you can also decide how feathery your jowls will be:

  • Long Droop
  • Braided
  • Thin
  • Thick Droop
  • Majestic

Feathers: Most noticeable along the wings, you’ll be able to choose how streamlined or fluffy you are overall. This option determines whether you have additional feathers over and above the base body model:

  • None
  • Standard
  • Long
  • Short

Moonkin Adornment Customization Options

These are the options for fine-tuning your Moonkin, by messing with their decorations and effects.

Decorations: A core feature of all Moonkin — even the quest mob NPCs — is that they adorn themselves with feathers, beads, and other found objects. Much like the jewelry your humanoid figure wears, you’ll now be able to customize the Moonkin adornments as well:

  • None
  • Standard
  • Gemstones
  • Run Feathers
  • Leaves
  • Cord

Decoration Color: Not only do you get to choose the style of decoration, you also get to choose its colors. Will it match or stand out from your body and antlers? Let’s see:

Effects Style: A new addition to the Moonkin look, these are full-body auras that look similar to weapon enchantment effects. They’re animated, flickering and swirling around your character:

  • None
  • Moon
  • Swirl
  • Starlight
  • Body

Effects Color: The drop-down menu color swatches don’t do these justice, so I strongly recommend playing with these until you find the one you like. There are six color options currently, with one being locked behind the Feather of the Smoke Red Moon drop. Three are cool shades, ranging from a light frost blue through to a deep royal blue/purple, and three are warm shades, from a bright sunlit yellow through to a deep ruby red.

Those upcoming Moonkin customizations are frankly very exciting for Druid players everywhere. So… do you want to build a Moonkin?
