Pyro, this is in an effort to further discussion, so disregard completely if this seems heated, but regarding your list...-Elune tries to move the night elves away from the Well of Eternity (since they are essentially denying her worship by worshiping arcane), and towards her own source of power... er.. herself. Failing that, the world goes boom, and there is this Sunwell much like the previous Well, and elves are desperately trying to find a new source of magic to fill it. So why not fill it with the source of magic you wish them to be using since they seem quite bent on making it work.- prior to wow, the druids and the priestesses of Elune were two different classes completely unrelated. Since the night elves were a matriarchal race and females had Elune, men had to find something else to fill the void the Well left. They chose druidism, but to be more socially acceptable, Elune created, er gave birth to a different being to teach them this magic. Elune may not have had enough strength for them to use the Light as well as her priestesses, so other forms were given. see below.- in the War of the Ancients, Tyrande represented the leader of a religion that if she died, someone else possibly more like Azshara and less like Tyrande may have risen to power and if that happened, Elune would be severely lacking in followers than she already was. Also, we don't know if no naaru has ever done that. Somehow I am betting that if Velen was ever truly threatened, particularly back on Argus, that A'dal may very well have spared mortals for the sake of continuing this group of followers.- The most primative of religions tend to have a god of Sun and Moon. Elune and Anshe may have chosen to present themselves as such. When Anshe became separated during the sundering, Elune was the only one left to worship and empower the night elves, thus keeping up the facade meant continuing the representation of the Moon.Elune may very well have been in a void state. This would explain why she chose the Moon and Anshe took the sun as symbols. Cenarious being part nature itself understands nature anyways to teach druidism and she may have taught him arcane anyways since it was handy and she couldn't bestow her own power to him (which is why he couldn't be with her and was raised by Ysera). She may have gotten back to the Light eventually, but then the Sundering happened. This may also explain why she chose to create the Night Elves near the Well. She might still be in the Light but really weak since Night Elves became immortal after the Sundering and she was weak to begin with.Anyways, as I said before, this is just my take towards explaining things in a different way to account for Elune still being naaru. Take what you will.
