    Golden eyes are a sign of great potential, especially in the druidic sense.

    Lore-wise very few have golden eyes, and there are bound to be females among those too (Azshara was one). In-game they probably wanted to express how males are the 'true' druids or something.

    Pretty much this. In Night Elven society, females would usually be the ones fighting in close combat, while males would cast from a distance, with the majority of battling spellcasters being Druids.

    Was it true that most of the night elf warriors were female up untill the WotA?

    Golden eyes represent great druidic potential lorewise. Males are the druids of the night elf society, though there are exceptions. That's why.

    No, as a matter of fact the guards of Zin'azshari had males among them too. After the War of the Ancients the society split between the Sentinels (mostly female) and Druids (mostly male) as the ruling organisations.

    They were male, the nelf female fighters date closely before and after the battle for mont Hyjal and they are called the sentinels, in WoTA tough, the majority of the army was from males, with the sisterhood of Elune (practicaly the sentinels now) was just proving itself amongst the others

    Actually your sort of wrong

    Druidism was taught by Cenarius after Wota as a Alternative to Arcane magic (does not say they were all males but lore fails to show a female druid)

    Sentinels never really appeared until the druidic males of the society started sleeping in the emerald dream to fulfill their bargain with Yzera for her gift of immortality. (All living nightelf males were apparently sleeping) druids

    Tyrande mobilised the Sisters of Elune as a hybrid healing/fighting force during the War of the Ancients. Okay, technically they weren't called Sentinels yet, but the order's the same really.

    funny thing is that is totally reversed for the naga

    the males are the fighters and the females are casters, i guess its becaus azshara is of course queen and is the best effing mage ever

    well thats the entire reason they created about..3 or so tier sets with antlers. also thats a side effect of getting really powerful in druidism. So until a player is a raid boss, no.
    -----------------

    Supposidly back in the day golden eyes where sign of great potential. Most night elves had silver eyes to match the magic of their goddess. After the War of the Ancients a great many male elves took up druidism. As was Night elven culture Males where the casters and warriors, females where the priestesses.

    The habit bled into the new type of magic, so most druids where male. Since (most) males because in tune with nature magic, they started all being in tune with it so most night elf males have golden eyes (I believe Brom Bearmantle is example of a male druid with silver eyes, until the events of Stormrage)

    The females, left to guard their brothers, retained their priestly ways, but had to defend the borders, thus came the sentinals. after 10 thousand years, male druids are active and taking in new members, thus an influx of the rare female druid. also now that there are actually men who are awake for more than a few weeks, we have many more Male warriors and priests.

    So lore RP tip.

    until the past few years (ie. 4-6) if your a female druid, or male warrior or priest, you are a minority.

    Yep, which is the reason I made mine male. Well that and I hated "the bounce" :P
