Druid Artifact Form Colors Per Race
In addition to updated bear and cat forms in Legion, Guardian and Feral Druids are getting unique colors based on race from their Artifact Weapon. If you go to the Appearance tab on the Artifact Calculator and mouseover the squares on the top row, you can now see which color corresponds to each race.
Guardian Druids with Claws of Ursoc equipped have a dark blue Bear form for Night Elves, brown/red for Tauren, aqua/red for Troll, and purple for Worgen.
Feral Druids with Fangs of Ashamane equipped have a purple Cat form for Night Elves, brown for Tauren, green/magenta for Troll, and light brown for Worgen.
The remaining Artifact forms are available to all races. Guardian and Feral druids have some Artifact weapon variations as well, but the majority of the artifact customization is found in their forms.
Warcraft Movie Books
Following the the recent announcement that Warcraft is getting a graphic novel prequel on June 7th, we took a look at Amazon to see what other movie-themed books are coming soon. As with most preorders, these books have significant discounts if you purchase in advance.
Warcraft: Behind the Dark Portal contains concept art, photography, and cast and crew interviews. This art book is currently $31.89, 29% off the list price.
The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people, and their home.
So begins a spectacular saga of power and sacrifice in which war has many faces and everyone fights for something. World of Warcraft holds the Guinness World Record for most popular MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) ever and has grossed more than 11.5 billion dollars since it was released. Warcraft: Behind the Dark Portal tells the full story of the incredible creative journey that brought Blizzard Entertainment’s beloved epic adventure of world-colliding conflict to the big screen. Filled with stunning concept art, unit photography, and visual effects breakdowns, this book also features insightful interviews with the incredible cast and crew, as they share the secrets behind bringing war-torn Azeroth to life.
While the graphic prequel Bonds of Brotherhood appears to be Alliance-centric based on the description and cover art, the Horde is the focus of the prequel paperback Warcraft: Durotan, written by Christie Golden with story by Chris Metzen. This novel is currently $5.02, 26% off the list price. This book ships much earlier than the other movie novels, on May 3rd.
Finally, if you want the events of the movie in novel-form, Warcraft Official Movie Novelization is available on June 7th, again written by Christie Golden with story by Chris Metzen. This novel is also currently $5.02, 26% off the list price.
