The reason I mentioned Wicca here is because I knew some wiccans in college, and they seemed reasonable enough to me... certainly making an effort to connect to nature in their own way. I definitely agree that they are not druidism at all, but then this article isn't about real life druidism. Even the real historical druids I wrote about in the article linked at the end of this post are not at all the same thing as the druids of WoW. Warcraft druids are their own thing entirely, separate from all human religions, no matter what their name. I hope no one reads this article and says, "I can turn to Wicca to let me understand druidism better!" but rather, "I can read about these other ways of understanding humanity and nature in order to get some inspiration for how I will interpret the lore and experiences of my character." I mention the Tao first because to me it provides the most inspiration (short of just experiencing nature of course), and the others are just alternatives in case the Tao doesn't work for you.By all means, if you don't like Wicca then feel free to suggest something else you feel is a better inspiration. Someone else who likes it a lot, however, may feel there's a lot there to inspire you. Each reader can choose for him or herself.
