Every week, Shifting Perspectives examines issues affecting Druids and those who group with them. This week, we slog through levels 21-30. Also, werewolves.
Once the news broke on Troll Druids (and, I would guess, Worgen Druids as well, assuming that Blizzard isn't in the middle of a giant hoax), I sat back in my chair and held the following conversation with my subconscious, as I am so often wont to do:
ME: Troll Druids make no sense. Neither do Worgen Druids.
SUBCONSCIOUS: This is not about sense. This is about expanding your readership. Trolls + Worgen = MOAR DURIDS = more people reading Shifting Perspectives.
ME: That's not a valid statistical assertion.
SUBCONSCIOUS: Cool story, bro. Everyone will be rolling a werewolf Worgen when the expansion hits. You know you will be.
SUBCONSCIOUS: Werewolves! How badass is that, is all I'm saying.
ME: But the Trolls hate the Elves! They wouldn't be caught dead in Moonglade! And how the hell did the Worgen learn Druidic magic that took thousands of years to develop while some nutcase locked them behind the Greymane wall for 10 some-odd years?
SUBCONSCIOUS: Who cares?
ME (faltering): But...lore...wibba...wubba...
SUBCONSCIOUS: F%@k the lore! Now's the time to make a mad bid for power! Grind the rest of the class columnists under your questionably-itemized i-level 239 boot!
ME: Screw you, I need to go write the column for this week.
SUBCONSCIOUS (shouts after me): WEREWOLVES WEREWOLVES WEREWOLVES!
