The most powerful of the Druidic faction of the Night Elves, the Arch-Druid is a ferocious-looking hero, with antlers on his forehead and a fierce expression. He carries a staff for melee attack.[1]

The Arch Druid was canceled during development and his model was instead given to the Druid of the Talon unit. In the campaign, both Furion Stormrage and Jaina Proudmoore use the Arch Druid model with unique textures. One of his abilities, Sleep, was given to the Dreadlord. The Keeper of the Grove also has a Force of Nature ability, but with a different effect.

Trivia

  • Among the possible random hero names was "Thurin Stormbreaker".[2] This may have been an early name for Malfurion Stormrage.
  • The Arch Druid seems to have been a melee hero that would hit enemies with his staff and claw them with his free hand. These attack animations are used by the Druid of the Talon for ranged attacks.
