Top definition
A member of a Celtic order of priest magicians or wizards whose rituals, centering on animal and tree worship, were said to include human sacrifice.
A druid was a member of the priestly class in Gaul and likely other parts of Celtic Western Europe during the Iron Age. Following the invasion of Gaul by the Roman Empire, the druids were suppressed by the Roman government from the 1st century CE and disappeared from the written record by the 2nd century, although there may have been later survivals in the British Isles. Very little is currently known about the ancient druids as they left no written accounts about themselves, and other than a few descriptions left by Greek and Roman authors, and in stories created by later mediaeval Irish writers, the accuracy of all of which are disputed, we have no evidence about them.

Revived in the eighteenth centuary, the druid tradition stems back to the time of the celts where the druids took on the role of prophets, teachers and they also led rituals. In the late 1980s psychologist Phillip Gomm-Carr became the head of the British Druid order.

Druidry is a polytheistic earth based religion that follows the mythology of the celts. Contemporary druidry has an eight-fold year that includes four fire festivals. It's a religion based on peace and reverence of nature and the ancestors.

A hybrid class in World of Warcraft.
- They have comparable healing to that of a priest
- Can ressurect in battle
- Can spec into a feral druid, turning into a fairly decent tank
- Moonkin form provides a fair utility in parties of casters

Though somewhat whiners in the WoW forums, druids have persevered with a somewhat awkward itemization issue, and look forward to the expansion to become considered more fully.

1 Originally an educated caste within Celtic society that seem to have been law-givers, priests, magicians, doctors and natural philosophers. It is recorded that they committed nothing to writing, preferring instead to learn by rote the considerable amount of lore at their disposal.

Druids were severely denigrated by roman propaganda, especially that of Julius Ceasar. Unfortunately as the romans systematically set to work wiping out the druids, the only records we have of them are the distorted accounts from the very culture that wished to destroy them.

2 A member of any number of modern orders or religions that stem from a romantic 18th century, sanitized and christianised revival of Druidry

3 A member of any number of neopagan groups that seeks to re-discover and re-construct a working animist religion and set of magical practices that focus on native (pre-roman) British and Celtic traditions.

4 In the minds of the modern illiterate a character class from various tabletop and online RPGs.

The Druid is a class of magic-wielder that is similar to the nechanter, but relies upon spiritual magic. The Druid is at peace with nature, and often is considered a protecter of the ecosystem. He is gifted with blessing weapons, controlling animals, and using nature as a weapon. Druids are reknowned for their ability to call upon fierce wolf packs to their aid, and controlling natural phenonmena, such as hurricanes and monsoons, and using them as a weapon. The Druid is very calm, and almost as wise as the Wizard, but they have been known to go into uncontrolled fits of rage when the environment is in danger.
