    Druids

    [​IMG]

    SUMMARY
    Teal is a highly diverse faction that initially starts as the dominant partner ;) of the Night Elven team. Based on the Druidic half of Kal’dorei society in WoW, it also represents some other organisations such as the Cenarion Circle.
    Teal’s main base lies on Mount Hyjal, where the Archdruid Fandral Staghlem leads his people. However, another vital base lies to the south where it guards the entrance to the ancient kingdom of Ahn’Quiaj, and the prison it contains..
    Fandral is not Teal’s only hero. Remulos, Keeper of Moonglade and Malfurion Stormrage are also available, but later on in the game.
    Teal’s main strength lies in its casters and highly versatile units. Between its durable mountain giants, powerful unit spawning druids and AOE heals, Teal is a foe to be reckoned with and may prove overwhelming in a 1v1 battle, even able to counter and contain the Old Gods semi-solo faction in the early game..
    In order to fight his battles, Teal has the option to open a portal to the Emerald Dream and travel though to far corners of Azeroth. The Emerald Dream connects Mount Hyjal, Feralas and Valsharah (for the moment) by means of portals that may be conjured by the item ‘Idol of Remulos’. While this artefact initially lies in Fandral’s hands, it it useable by any hero who should obtain it.
    A bastion of the Green Dragonflight also exist, guarding a powerful artificial that may prove instrumental for ensuring dominance over Kalimdor, for any faction..
    While Teal is suitably powerful to deal with a wide variety of threats, it is unlikely to be able to take on the combined powers of enemy teams, hence it will need to rely on its ally, the Sentinels, and ensure their cooperation and allegiance. It is possible that they may choose to forgo their alliance with you and seek ties elsewhere with the Grand Alliance.
    Should such events pass, you may choose to follow a darker path with more powerful allies. The Emerald Nightmare poisoned Fandral’s mind long ago, and should he succumb to it he will surely aid it in its spread throughout the Emerald Dream and into Azeroth itself. This path completely overhauls the faction and allows Teal to negotiate alliances to the Old Gods or Burning Legion



    THE EMERALD NIGHTMARE

    The Emerald Nightmare is a betrayal path that entirely overhauls Teal’s gameplay. All buildings, units, play styles and possibilities are changed. While you do lose Remulos, you will have the option to corrupt other heroes..
    Teal will lose Blue as an ally but will have the opportunity but will have the chance to forge ties with its former enemies, either the Old Gods or the Burning Legion. Access to the Emerald Dream is maintained, allowing for high levels of mobility throughout the map.

    "Teal will lose Blue as an ally but will have the opportunity but will have the chance to forge ties with its former enemies"
    mistake mistake :D
    Edit: btw if druids can win against faction on 1v1 ofc they were meant to fight against the horde but what about the other factions? how do you balance that?

    Druids are not really "that" strong. They are more a very flexible. Its "easier" to fight enemies because of autocasting treants and such. Also, units, that allow these benefits are mostly tied to soemthink, that is not capturable.
    And specificaly, the units are called "Druids of the Wild" and are tied to "Ancient of Wild" in Teal base near the AhnQuiraj.
    Possibly later... we had to cut off a lot of Nightmare content because its just too complex. But the Corrupted Remulos will be a thing.
    You will see everythink in map :-)
    But there are no Dragon heroes now... :( I would like to add them at some point but i am afraid that Nightmare will be a nightmare to balance.

    Also the problem with fighting the faction you can join is no that big when you consider fact, that evil can have only one ally. And there are others, much more valuable allies to chose from so we will see. :-)
