I agree with a lot of what you have to say here.My tauren druid has always been my main. As a raider, she is my absolute favorite toon. I just "get" resto healing better than anything else in the game, and it makes me happy. As a roleplayer, however, I have never had much success with my druid. There's just something about her that I can't relate to (sadly, I think it's the fact that she's a giant cow) and anytime I've RPed or written about her, it's just fallen flat as compared to what I've been able to do with other toons.I had hoped that Cataclysm would fix this for me, but for the entire first part of the expansion, things were the same. Then 4.2 hit, and with it all of the Firelands stuff, and for the first time I actually felt a connection to my character that let me do some good writing about her. Going through the quests with Runetotem and seeing that scene where Leyara attacks him really hit me, and it inspired me to write one of my better stories during the past year. A lot of it had to do with what you were discussing here in my character questioning her place in the Horde and seriously considering just leaving the fighting behind. I'm looking forward to seeing how her character will continue to develop in Mists, and hoping that druids as a whole get some more class lore development as well, beyond the night elf stuff. While I really do enjoy night elf lore (even as a Horde player) I would like to see the other races' take on druidism get some time in the sun.
