 Shapeshift ability usage question

Hey folks, in the 1.5 rules Shapeshift is an action units can take, and back in the 2013 FAQ they describe that the Deepwood Druid can cast Briar Armor and then shapeshift into Angry Bear to get Backlash with his higher base ARM value. Both of the FK manuals state that models can shapeshift during their upkeep and doesn't mention being able to use it otherwise, so the Druid cannot do this anymore. Did I miss a rule somewhere stating models can be shapeshifted at other times, or was the character not updated to work with the new Shapeshift rules?

If they can be shapeshifted at other times, what are the restrictions on it?

Thanks.

Yes, I do. The 2nd edition cards still only have Briar Armor on Deepwood Druid and only attacks on Angry Bear. Here's the cards I'm referring to. I think I found the upcoming 2nd edition rules and this problem will still exist as Shapeshift can not be used mid-turn like it was pre-FK;

It's not really a problem. It's just not a viable tactic for that character anymore. It's not like there's some critical mechanic that required that that was never addressed though.

As it stands, the only way something can shapeshift outside of upkeep is if it has some forced shift criteria, like sprout to king sprout.
