Disease drops this illusion

Didn't read all of the comments, but I just wanted to say, if you get a disease cast on you, it drops this form. Guessing it is the Regen part of this form that gets overwrote by disease. Just thought I'd share..
Bear colors

I'm also wondering about the bear form color. If anyone knows, please let me know. I'm a Vah Shir and my bear form is brown, but I'd really prefer to be white!
Thanks =)

Here's an odd question.

I'm a barb shaman and my greater bear form is all white. I've seen all black bear forms and white w/ black head forms, are the colors specific to race?
Bear form better animation

Wish the upgraded the bear forms.
There are still old grafic.
The animation form a bear in a Everfrost dungeon would do nicely ;-)
(drood wolf form whas upgraded...why this 1 not?)

Also they could use the werewolfs from MM ldon for boon of the Garou/werewolf form.

Hm...as i write this i ask myself why i do it.
I HATE wining about what a class should have and such.
But i just didnt saw any post or what so ever that it whas desired.
Just askin my self if i am the only1 with this thought.
Where can you get this spell?

What drops this spell and where? Can you solo for it?
Also ultravision
# Jan 10 2004 at 4:26 AM Rating: Default
Another benefit not mentioned here is this bear comes with ultravision or similar. The earlier bear form had infravision, which beats nothing but not by much. I have a dark monitor and for this big barb girl this is a great benefit. Not having to mem/cast ultravision and see very clearly is wonderful.
No proof..but....

Ya, well your wisdom doesn't cap out until 255 so if your only at 200 then you could use more. The hp regen could be usefull for cannibalizing. And the ultravision is very usefull for my barbarian. Not to sure about how much other races need that.

Just in case you get the urge to try it:
No, you cannot ride a horse in Bear Form.

How you knew that it had crossed my mind I have no idea, but I think it would be more interesting to see a bear ride a Drog intstead of a horse.....

You would think you would get a small attack bonus with bear form. Only seems logical.

Cast on others?!
# May 26 2003 at 2:01 AM Rating: Default
Cast on other: Soandso turns into a bear.

Are you telling us that this spell can be cast on others?
Am I mistaken in that this is wrong information or did they change this too?

I will know what is fact once I reach 55 I guess. :\

Cast on other merely means that will be the text displayed to others when the spell is cast on You.

The spell is self only.. u can check that by looking at target type info above %-}
