  • Well, in World of Warcraft it is a class of toon that you can play! They can morph into different animals in the game.

  • In WoW a druid can be either a Night Elf (on the alliance side) or a Tauren (on the horde side).

    A druid can morph into: a Sea Cow (water form to swim faster) a cat (travel form to run faster) a bear (has more armor ad healthand can take more damage) a different cat form (that does a TON of damage to other things) a Tree form (that allows for you to heal your party members for more than normal) or a Moonkin (which allows you to do some great spell damage as opposed to melee damage like the other forms)

    O.O I never played one (I was a NE Shadow Priest) but my BIL had one.

  • Here's some info on the REAL druids: A druid was a member of the priestly and learned class in the ancient Celtic societies of Western Europe, Britain and Ireland. They were suppressed by the Roman government and disappeared from the written record by the second century AD. Druids combined the duties of priest, judge, scholar, and teacher.[1] Little contemporary evidence for them exists, and thus little can be said of them with assurance, but they continued to feature prominently in later Irish myth, literature and law.[2]

    You'll find more on wikipedia.

  • The weird old guys who built Stonehenge and invented Halloween. They were an ancient cult. Kind of scary - they did human sacrifices and stuff like that.

  • Would you do your research chavela carlita. They were not a cult. Druids were teachers, priest, scholars in the days of the ancient Celts. Good grief, lets not spread more fear please.

  • Druids spent decades studying, passing on most of their teachings orally. They served as judges, historians, teachers, physicians, poets, priests, among other things. There are many older orders, some which practice & live in peaceful & respectful ways, others which thrive on pain & chaos.
    The 2nd type is responsible for the human sacrifices of records, most notably the burning of an entire village of people in a wicker cage as a warning to Roman invaders during war times that they were dangerous and unpredictable (therefore not to be threatened). Another sacrifice (falsely accredited to the druids) was a 3-fold death the king would perform in desperate times of war to regain their gods' favor.
    Some druids chose to be absorbed into the Roman church rather than face the rampant persecution. There are druids today, though most of them are very discreet about their practice. All the older orders are now completely underground.
