When it's time to run, four feet are better than two.

Travel Form, formerly known as the "cheetah", is a druid shapeshifting spell learned at level 16. The form it choose depends on the environment the druid is currently in and whether flying is permitted in that area.

With the release of Mists-Logo-Small Mists of Pandaria, the default cheetah form was replaced by an updated stag form. The old cheetah form can still be acquired through the use of Glyph of the Cheetah.

Talents

Tips and tactics Edit

  • This form is instant cast, so it can be used to beat a strategic retreat if a fight is going badly.
  • The travel form does not stack with speed enchants or speed gems, with the exception of the feral PvP 4 piece set bonus.
  • Since this form is less mana consuming than Bear Form or Cat Form, its effect of breaking Polymorph and movement impairing effects makes it an excellent inexpensive escape ability.
  • Selecting the Feline Swiftness talent at level 15 makes the travel form speed 161% making it just slightly faster than an apprentice mount. (201% with a Worgen's Darkflight racial)

Notes Edit

  • This form can only be used outdoors.
  • You can not use abilities in this form. You are also considered a Beast, so spells that target Beasts can be used on you (Hibernate, for instance).
  • Your caster form will start regaining mana 5 seconds after you change to travel form.
  • Travel Form has three specific advantages over a mount.
    1. Unlike a mount, which players cannot use while in combat, a druid is able to shift into travel form while fighting either a mob or another player.
    2. Travel Form is instantly cast, making it even better for those sticky situations. With Travel Form, druids are able to escape from nearly any fight or simply put distance between themselves and their attackers practically whenever they wish.
    3. As with any form, herbs may be harvested through herbalism, dead beasts can be skinned through skinning. This makes it an excellent way to achieve the fastest results with a gathering profession.

Speculation Edit

Questionmark-medium
This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

It is widely speculated[citation needed] that the original intention was for this form to be a stag but was changed at the last minute. This is evidenced through the odd hoof-shaped icon, and the fact that while the other forms (except Tree of Life Form) have unique skins, cheetahs that look identical to travel form exist in the game.
