Malfurion Stormrage, the Archdruid, is a ranged support hero from the Warcraft universe.[1] He is the greatest druid on Azeroth, and a student of the demi-god Cenarius. Communing with nature and Cenarius through the Emerald dream, Malfurion protects the wilds from demonic influences.

Malfurion heals his allies and restores their mana. He is able to reveal and root groups of enemies from a distance.[2]

Background[edit | edit source]

Warcraft This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft universe.

The blessings of the forest lord Cenarius have made Malfurion Stormrage the epitome of what it means to be a druid.

Under the guidance of Cenarius – the demigod of nature and patron of druids – the venerable Malfurion Stormrage has protected the night elves from demonic invaders for millennia. During the War of the Ancients, Malfurion was among those who defended all life on Azeroth from the terrible Burning Legion, along with his future lover Tyrande Whisperwind and his brother Illidan. After their victory against the demons, Malfurion saw to it that the night elves left the Legion's ravages behind, settling in a new home near Mount Hyjal and overseeing the growth of the World Tree, Nordrassil. The Aspect of Dreams, Ysera, linked Nordrassil to the Emerald Dream—a representation of Azeroth without war and interference from sentient beings—allowing all druids, including Malfurion, access to the realm. Malfurion and others explored the Dream for centuries.

Malfurion was awakened by Tyrande to aid the resistance against the Legion once more during the Third War; upon returning to his slumber, he battled his nemesis, the satyr Xavius, who was attempting to corrupt the Emerald Dream from inside. When Deathwing broke the world and stirred the rage of elementals during the Cataclysm, Malfurion left the night elven capital of Darnassus, and gathered his fellow druids to save Azeroth once more, creating a task force to stop the invasion led by the vicious firelord Ragnaros. With the Destroyer's demise, a finally wakeful Malfurion rejoined Tyrande to support the efforts of the Alliance.
