The golden eyes of the night elves are suppose to represent greatness, not specificly druidism correct? Anyhow, golden eyes seem to be more of a curse than anything. I will use Broll as another example, sure he had some moments in the Nightmare, but along with himself and Illidan they seem to cry and cry they that they are not living up to expectations for their golden eyes.Love Illidan but BC kinda Raine his character, and I respectfully disagree with him possible being a better druid than his brother, no ah disapline!

Broll had antlers, not golden eyes.

I seem to recall the same "lore" around the golden eyes. It was a harbinger of greatness amongst the elves, not an indicator of druidic talent.

From http://www.wow-europe.com/en/info/encyclopedia/508.xmlSilver Eyes, Golden EyesBefore the Sundering, golden eyes were extremely rare among the night elves. Golden eyes thus came to be regarded as a sign of future greatness. Both Queen Azshara and Illidan had these unusual eyes. Unfortunately the falsehood of this widespread belief was only to become clear after these two infamous individuals had reached their dark fates.In truth, golden eyes were a sign of strong druidic potential. Little wonder that pre-Sundering night elves, with their emphasis on the arcane, did not understand the significance of these unusual eyes. Simply having this potential did not guarantee that the potential would be sensed or understood, much less wielded with skill and compassion. Despite his golden eyes, Illidan struggled with the druidic arts, though he, like Malfurion, was tutored by Cenarius."

You might wanna reread the stormrage novel if that's where you're getting that info, the book specifically states broll's eyes become golden after a certain point in the book.
