Hello, today I heard of a interesting type of roleplaying style .. if you haven't guessed already, it is Savagekin. For all of you who don't know what a savagekin is it is a druid who is devoted to connecting to a feral life in the wild as a animal, They have little to no humanity much like feral worgen. I had a few questions:
- Would be able to communicate be speaking or even telepathy?
- Would I be able to change into different animals? Or would I be devoted and stuck as one animal.
- How long would I have to spend in forms in order to start becoming feral?
- How would I roleplay as a actual saveagekin and not 'Dwah, look at the kitty kat or the teddy bear'?
Thank you for taking the time to answer some of my questions and feel free to add any other tips on how to roleplay as a savagekin. Have a great day! :) -Moon Guardian Suincune

Despite the Savagekin class being non-canon, as stemming from the RPG books, let's take a look at what it says.
As they are able to retake their humanoid forms, we can assume that they are still able to communicate with sophisticated language. However, they differ from druids, who can speak in animal forms, as they identify more with beast than with man. After a while, your savagekin will probably lose the ability to communicate with others of his or her own race.
Luckily, you can still chat with animals according to WoWpedia.
As they are essentially "becoming the beast" they are transforming into, I think it would be safe to assume that past a certain point, the druid training is forgotten and one form is mastered.
There aren't any solid numbers, but I think it would take a few years ranging up to decades of nothing but feral form with no contact with civilization.
You don't touch cities. Ever.
You are incredibly wary of strangers. Depending on how feral your savagekin has become, you can attack them with little to no provocation.
Don't "purr" if someone tries to pat you on the head. Bite their hand off.
As a savagekin, you have begun to abandon the societal restrains that your culture had forced upon you. Being nice to people is incredibly low on your priority list.
I did find a link on MG forums about rping a savagekin. And really, it is not hard to do per se, just the fact you need to do it with other savagekin, and not go into cities. And remember you are not a housecat or tame animal of ANY kind.
I however use my various forms as they are intended. Stormcrow as a flying scout, searching from the air for enemy troop movements. Cat to fight, or bear if I must tank something. One thing I really do not like is the stag form. I much prefer the cheetah form. Wish they would come out with a glyph for that.
I do like the orca swim form a lot better than the ugly sealion. Wish I could attack in that form though, after all they are "killer" whales.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
Harassing or discriminatory language. This will not be tolerated.
