Introduction to the Druid of the WildEdit
Druids of the Wild are a class of Druid which incorporate many different animals and animalistic aspects into their repertoire. Some still call themselves druids of the wild to represent their breadth, but as this approach is now standard, mostly they are called just druids.
They are tied to the living aspects of nature - flora and fauna. They do not dabble in elemental forces; such powers are the purview of shamans. A Druid of the Wild grows such a strong affinity with nature that she may assume the form of animals and even super-natural beasts
The path of the Druid of the WildEdit
Traditionally, druids chose the path of a specific animal totem, becoming either Druids of the Claw or Druids of the Talon. Indeed, legends suggest that there were even more orders of druid than these two. After the Legion's invasion, the druids began to use the powers of all forms, combining their strengths against their enemies and becoming the Druids of the Wild. WRPG 69
Ysera is the absolute ruler of the Emerald Dream. As such, most Druids of the Wild venerate her; and even if some do not treat her as a deity, she is at least acknowledged as one of the greatest paragons of nature in existence. Druids of the Wild also visit the Emerald Dream using their hibernation ability and with certain spells. Generally, these travels happen unimpeded, since they are almost always peaceful and can cause no lasting damage.
Alexstrasza is rarely venerated by any particular group, although the Druids of the Wild appreciate her serene presence, considering her second in importance only to Ysera.
Therazane the Stonemother is ruler over the earth, dirt, rock and mountains. She is revered by all earth elementals and creatures that dwell underneath the ground. Some Druids of the Wild see her as the embodiment of all that is peaceful and calm about the world.
The most experienced druids of the wild, become Epic Druids of the Wild. The epic druid of the wild shapes and alters nature. He wields its most terrifying aspects and takes the forms of its mightiest creatures. To witness him in combat is to suffer the fury of a raging hurricane, while to observe him in meditation is to feel serenity of rustling grasses. He must divide his attentions between combat ability and magical prowess. Both are useful, so he follows his natural instincts.
