To ALL Worgen Druids !

It has come to our attention that many a Worgen Druid doesn't really understand where they originate from. Let us therefore clarify !

There are three possible origin stories from which a Worgen Druid could have sprung into existance from:

Harvest Druid

The Harvest druids were apparently around in Gilneas, presumably, since the rise of the nation. Practicing the restorative side of druidism and having no accounts of being able to shift into animals at all. They -do- however communicate via the Spirits and thus have a connection with the Emerald Dream from which -all- druids channel their powers.
This means your worgen were born a Gilnean, most likely in the remote edges of society alone with whoever was teaching you, be it a mother or father of the same profession as such arts would likely only have been taught within certain circles.
The only real evidence to their powers is a sentence from Celestine the Harvest Witch which explains how her kind saved the crops at one point. Probably making them focus mostly on the healing side of druidism, which is an essential part really of -all- druids.

Important: You're a rookie when it comes to shapeshifting. To master the arts to a comfortable level of safety and control would take many years, possibly so long until the next expansion arrives. Your healing is excellent however, perhaps just below any night elf's.

Taught by the Kal'dorei

This kind of Worgen may or may not have been a Harvest Witch already before undergoing training from the Kal'dorei druids who would know considerably more about druidism than any race, with the exception of the Shu'halo. Though their affinity with druidism could also be explained by the very nature of the Worgen. Worgen were once members of the Druids of the Pack who's feral form was the Worgen.
Their innate ability to transform would then be very close and they would easily learn how to shapeshift into other forms aswell. The Kal'dorei mostly teaches the new generations of druids to be Druids of the Wild, covering all aspects of druidism though never specializing in any of them. Meaning you have lots of potential but none of it is truly powerful.

Though it is imperative to note that shapeshifting is by no means easy nor does it come without risk. Imagine your whole perception of the world around you change dramatically as you are locked in a shape that moves on all four, your sense of smell sharpening and so perhaps also you eyesight. Though maybe even your eyesight switches to black/white colour or lacks a colour tap so the sense of colouration on your surroundings changes dramatically aswell. You'd have to learn how to even move in this new form correctly, and that would take many years get to function properly.
All of while you are constantly battling your primal urge which Worgen are already prone to succumb to, meaning its extremely dangerous if you're inexperienced, as you could become an animal completely (Not reversible).

Important: You're a rookie when it comes to shapeshifting. To master the arts to a comfortable level of safety and control would take many years, possibly so long until the next expansion arrives.

Druid of the Pack

Perhaps the most controversial and mary sue-ish of solutions. You were basically one of the Druids of the Pack that once, long ago delved into the raging worgen form of the savage wolf spirit Goldrinn. A form that drove you crazy until Ralaar Fangfire rounded you up along with the rest of the pack and taught you how to control yourself atleast to a degree where you retained your sanity.
You were banished into a pocket of the Emerald Dream by Malfurion Stormrage because of your savage and uncontrollable nature and slept for countless ages, possibly for 10000 years from pre-Sundering. You were then awakened in Blackwald under the great tree, Tal'doren by a possibly numerous amount of insidious persons of which there's little account.
Though during all this time in the Emerald Dream you had once more become feral, succumbed to the taint of the Worgen form and you would then spread the curse to the Gilneans and from there, the events of the starting area of the Worgen transpires.

This means you were once Night Elf. Though due to the nature of the curse you can no longer transform back, you are stuck in Worgen form 'forever' and you are immortal to aging and diseases. You are a natural shapeshifter, and you can with guidance from other druids learn to morph into other animals, though you would be on the same level as a Gilnean.
Though you natural exposure to the Emerald Dream has increased your druidic magic potential and possibly enabling you to both heal and cast more battle-oriented druidic spells.

If anyone is able to challenge these claims, be my guest so that we may work to find the truth behind things. However in doing so, please provide plausible explanations accompanied by evidence of Lore to back up these claims. Else your reply will be disregarded.
