Adventure Guide

Glaidalis was once known as among the most talented shapeshifters in all of Azeroth, and the elders of Moonglade would regularly send their most promising disciples to his care for instruction. But as has sadly too often been the case, those who are closest to nature are often the first to fall into the Nightmare's clutches.


Archdruid Glaidalis is a master shapeshifter, transforming into bear and cat forms with ease as he calls down corrupted starshards to bombard his foes.

Archdruid Glaidalis yells: Defilers... I can smell the Nightmare in your blood. Be gone from these woods or suffer nature's wrath!
Druidic Preserver yells: Kill him! Protect the grove!
Defilers... so it is you who have befouled these woods with the Nightmare.
Druid in your party
I sense a powerful druid among you. You dare to challenge my authority?
What is that you hold, druid?
  • Your power burns... How have you twisted the Scythe of Elune to obey your will?
  • What power comes from those fangs, defiler? You fight with the strength of the Ancients themselves.
  • You fight with the fury of Ursoc himself! No... I will not be defeated!
  • You are blessed with great restorative powers, druid, but I will rip you all apart in the end!
Grievous Leap
  • Andu-falah-dor!
  • By tooth and claw be purged!
  • I will bleed the Nightmare from you!
Primal Rampage
  • I am nature's fury incarnate!
  • I am the vessel of nature's fury!
Be purified in the light of the stars!
Killed a player
  • The Nightmare will not take these sacred woods.
  • Stay down, defiler!
  • Your blood reeks of corruption!
  • Only death can free you from the Nightmare.
  • The wilds are safe from the Nightmare once again.
  • I see now... I am the defiler...
  • The Nightmare... clouds my thoughts no more...
  • I just had... a strangest Nightmare...
Shade of Xavius says: A fluke. Savor it, and pray you do not face me next.
Malfurion Stormrage says: They will be more than prepared, for your true power rests in the nightmare.
Shade of Xavius says: Silence, weakling! When you open your mouth again, it will be to cry for mercy!
