I'm not saying draenei should be druids, and I'm also not claiming to be a lore expert.However, just to play devil's advocate for those who say that draenei could never learn to be druids, because it's alien to them and they don't have the time to pick it up...My understanding is that the eredar who lived on Argus were mages. They learned how to be warriors after that whole Sargeras incident, because they had to fight constant battles against the legion. They learned how to be priests and paladins from the Naaru... an alien race. They learned how to be hunters and shamans from the orcs... another alien race. They learned how to be death knights from the lich king... a single alien being.So there's the lore. They're not opposed to learning new things (they do it constantly, or in the case of death knights are forced into it), and there are already two religions practiced by the draenei (shamanism and Naaru-ism). Also, the "heal-the-earth-keep-everything-in-balance" oriented perspective of druidism seems very much in the draenei character. Can a loremaster prove me wrong on these points? Long story short (IMO) is that draenei won't be getting druids because worgen are getting druids. The draenei are already a popular race and don't *need* to be buffed by adding yet another healing class to their arsenal. That's why draenei are getting rogues, instead. (They learned it from those sneaky gnomes. You can't see them because, duh, stealth.)
