Blood Elf Druid, why not?

Druid
Farstrider Druids makes more sense than Troll Druids...

It will never happen most blood elves look at druids as mad dirt worshipers.

Demon-tainted magic addicts aren't really good candidates for achieving the harmony and balance of nature.

No.
Heres my feelings..

originally the blood elves kidnapped Muru..'bending' the light to there will...then later on after muru was killed and the sunwell made into a holy site/fountain..they kinda leech from that. would the expirience of the blood elves as a race..trying to redeem themselves..warrent possibly them being druids?

theres one part that..they could kidnap muru and force leech the light through him...wouldnt nature..standing next to the light aka god..if they can bend the light to twisted albeit not necessarily evil ends..why not nature..whom is more like the planet...god to a planet..if they can bend god to there will..why not a planet?

o_O




ok but seriously..the blood elves as a race are on a quest to calm there addiction and redeep there people as a race. what happened with the sunwell and it being turned into a holy site went a long way towards redeeming them. wouldnt the nature aspects see this..and offer a different path..in this case druidism? in its 'calming/satating' way?

le poke with my thoughts :P
Think of tauren paladin/priest and NE mages.... they'll find a way.
IMO, the Quel'dorei (and subsequently the Sin'dorei) probably harbored a lot of resentment and disdain for druids. It was a druid who was responsible for cutting off their source of magic, not once but twice. A druid was also responsible, at least partially, for their banishment from Kalimdor. So their lack of druidism probably began there, with their hatred of a druid. I would not be surprised if the Quel'dorei did not bring or except any kind of druidistic teachings when the left Kalimdor.

Move forward to nowadays, and while yes the Sin'dorei do respect and speak with nature (particularly the Farstriders), I don't believe they seek to commune or be one with nature. Just take a look at architecture of Silvermoon City and it's outlying settlements and compare that to Darnassus and it's outlying settlements. There is clearly a greater affinity with nature amongst the Kaldorei than there is amongst the Sin'dorei.

So I would imagine that true druidism, the way the Kaldorei, worgen, trolls and tauren practice it, probably has never been accepted / taught amongst the Sin'dorei or Quel'dorei.

no, the loa taught them to motivate the troll priests to not kill them like the drakkari and such.
Draenei druid. So I can turn into a spaceship as a flight form.
In the love of all that is good and holy, NO!

GET THE POINT? THEY DONT WANT NATURE MAGIC? They could have been druids but they said no.
Please read some of the lore comments.

Blood Elves are like the high rich stuck up movie stars (my brother was on transformers 2 and every single one of them cept the black guy that was in movie army dude, was stuck up and didn't care for the U.S. military) They look down on others and feel that magic based on the aid and worship of nature is UNWORTHY of them and too low for them. (they are nothing like that cute singing video that was posted here earlier, i mean look at them, there's a "dont trust the rogue video" that more matches them.

NO Becuase they already were offered and they said no. And since their actions with the demons etc. Leaders of the druids wouldn't even give them a chance now because Blood Elves are one of the 3 main oposite races to druids, Dwarves have a better chance at being a druid,m heck maybe even undead...

Tauren were open minded and gained it from the humans, NE mages have always existed but were banned from ally NE. No BE will not be druids.

No. There are enough Blood Elves running around as it is. Everyone wants to be the "pretty" race on Horde.
This is the real reason everyone wants a BE druid, so stfu bout it seriously, if you want to be a druid, unless ur resto, ur spending all ur time in a form, take it from a 85 feral.

Draenei druid.
That is something i can't even say anything on, idk if draenei have a lore that relates heavily to druids at all.
If they keep giving class options to Blood Elves, no hordies will ever play any other race. Fanboyism for the race that's 'pretty' rather than 'ugly' is too rampant. Add in that their racial is relatively good, and it's game over.

One of the things I like about playing Alliance is the racial diversity I see walking through Stormwind. On my hordie, all I saw was blood elf hordes.
Lore be damned, Bliz has made plenty of choices that seem wacky according to lore (as best I can tell, with friends as the source of my info on Warcraft lore). I can't stand the 2 Horde druid options, I'd love the be able to play either faction without hating what I'm looking at on screen.

We don't need more blood elves. Might as well make the entire horde team blood elves if you give them druids and shamans.
those two classes are gladly held from them.
Yes. Arcane Torrent = yum yum
Only if their travel form is a powder blue honda prius.
