This term is always lower case in the rpg, its a class only. It is not a proper "organization", unlike the Druids of the Fang. The only exception is that its upper case when used as an article title.Baggins (talk) 03:41, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

A clarification is that the first word, druid, is upper case when used in an article title, but not wild. Rolandius Paladin.gif (talk - contr) 04:29, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Actually, from Warcraft RPG (WRPG);
"Druid of the Wild" article contents on page 4 & 7, and article on pg 69, and "Druid of the Wild Spell List" on page 72.
The rest of the article & all other references are lower case, however.Baggins (talk) 04:45, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
You changed this article's title to Druid of the wild though. So which is it? Rolandius Paladin.gif (talk - contr) 05:03, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Current policy is to use lower case titles on articles for non-proper nouns (we do not follow the pattern as seen in regular books). Druid of the wild is lower case within all references within articles in the rpg. Therefore it is not a proper noun. Unless we change the policy to capitalize all article titles, then it should remain lower case.
You should already know that article titles in the RPG books (and official website) follow the capitalized title format, rather than lower case title format of the wiki.Baggins (talk) 05:08, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
That is what I meant above. When you said "The only exception is that its upper case when used as an article title" I thought you were referring to WoWWiki but I see now you meant the RPG did it in their titles. Rolandius Paladin.gif (talk - contr) 05:21, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
