What aspect of playing a Druid in classic has you the most excited?

@Icanem Same here. I couldn't decide on a class back in Vanilla, but then I took a break from the game and played WC3 and really liked the NE campaign and specifically the Druid units. I then came back to Vanilla and leveled a NE Druid. Played him through every expansion until BFA.
From the perspective of the class, the aesthetic was just incomparable and the only other with as much rich lore was Paladin but the nature side of the class was the most appealing thing. Animal mimicry, teleportation to a sanctum just for your brethren, survivability and the sneaky sneaky. What's not to love!
When I first started in Burning Crusade I picked Prot Warrior, boy that was a slog. I think I made it to 23 before I quit, and I made my first Druid. I wanted to be Feral and no one was ever going to get me to heal. I tanked some Dungeons and it was fine. It wasn't until later that I realized I liked healing. So now I have one character who can do a bit of everything.
I must admit I had a hard time at first deciding between Shaman and Druid. However, Druid won out. Sadly, because I realized we will not have the ability to transmog in Classic. So. purple pants, yellow gloves, red helm… it makes no difference I am a cow cat. Mooooooo.
@Siberian-Husky I should have just copied and pasted your response. It was to the point and without all the bla bla bla of my response . HA HA.
I won't be playing a Druid (#Priest4Lyf) but I'm excited to see some tree forms walking around again!
MOONKIN. It's the reason why I play WoW. Favorite spec on my favorite class. Been rocking druids since d2. I know that blanace is sub optimal spec for pve/pvp, but I want to play it so bad I plan on min maxing in a bunch of ways to make it viable. Focus on herbs and alchemy, so I can come to raids as buffed as possible. Love the feeling of a good starfire crit.
The ability to just endlessly kite and self heal. constant shapeshifting skills for an advantage. I want to hold that flag in Warsong for eternity.
Also duo leveling with a rogue, so the stealth and two man farming methods will be boss.
I Plan on going deep Resto
Druids are the best. I plan on Feral Tanking in PvE and Flag Running in PvP; those are my favorite things to do.
Flag running! I got a druid to rank 7 or 8 before TBC pre-patch when I re-rolled from Warrior to Feral to tank.
Druids are also the best class for taking advantage of all the available gear, sitting in stealth able to swap at will for any possible situation. You truly get rewarded for farming alternate sets as opposed to just getting an extra few stats points. There was an 80+ minute long feral druid video from back in 2006 I used to have of a druid who was his guilds tank (including tanking nef), all his tanking gear and all his resist gear allowed him to take down anyone, as opposed to just swapping a trinket. (If anyone can find this video I need to have it in my life again!)
Leveling is a breeze, on beta I was taking down 3+ mobs at once that were just murdering my warrior when it was on the same quest, and you NEVER need to wait for a group to do elite quests if no one else is around.
I have a memory of pressing feral charge, immediately switching out and pressing NS, then getting frame lag to the point I feral charged in Tauren form. Since that day I have tried to re-create that moment with no success.

As it's been a while and we're so close now. This was the magic that made Druid super underrated.
