The plagued, blighted, diseased, largely dead lands of Tirisfal feel like they’d make such an ideal place for the Drust to call home. Who knows? Maybe they’d find the Forsaken to be quite comfortable neighbors.
I’m still mad that the whole witch/Drust plotline was used for the KulTirans when Gilneas always had this theme of monsters in the woods with witches. Like why give it to Kul Tirans??
So yes, I would love for Gilneas to get updated and if one of the enemies was the Drust, maybe trying to reestablish a foothold but now in Gilneas as it was deserted but the Gilneans are moving back into their kingdom. Blizzard could really hit home the idea of the Gilneans “becoming monsters to fight monsters” since many Gilneans are worgen.
Hell they could have some of the feral worgen that remain join up with the Drust and we have to deal with that issue as well.
I think that would be a good story and interaction in general. Maybe if the Drust became a problem for the Gilneans, the Kul Tirans or at least the Thornspeakers & Order of Embers showing up to help the Gilneans/Worgen fight them.
Kul Tiran & Gilnean interaction together has some interesting potential. Would be nice to learn more about that history and especially how the former colony got its independence.
Except that is never a point of interest in the story. We never see the Gilneans trying to connect with the Kul tirans or sharing in their ancestry together. Instead the Kul Tirans were just given everything that made Gilneans unique from Stormwind Humans.
This would be cool, that way we can maybe also get more lore on the Harvest Witches of Gilneas. They got done dirty. Blizzard just was like yeah they are a thing but didn’t go into any depth, meanwhile the Kul Tirans get full on fleshed out druids and lore based around them. It would be cool if Blizzard had the Thornspeakers come to meet with Harvest Witches and we find out more on the latter.
That history would be a good point to introduce a human civil war which we don’t really hear about in any other human history as Arathor split up. The idea of Kul Tiras winning its independence in a war against the mother country would be a refreshing bit of human lore to add in.
In all my years of waiting for Kul Tiras to finally appear, i never imagined they’d have druids. Especially druids that were as unique and interesting as the Thornspeakers. The Harvest Witches in comparison really did get the short end of the stick though and that’s really a shame. Some interaction between the two would be interesting for sure.
This would be more of a gameplay thing but one thing i’ve always thought they should do for Worgen druids to make them unique is offer them the ability to fight in their Worgen form as Feral druids.
