Battle for Azeroth Allied Races - Zandalari Trolls

    Blood elves would be a good fit, they have even had some NPC druids.
    Blood Elves can't shapeshift. The "druids" in game just cast resto spells, like Gilnean harvest witches. Due to their upbringing and race being the exact opposite of "connected to nature" they cannot control the "beast within" and would lose their mind as well as their human form if they ever attempted.
    It's why only the more "tribal" races and worgen (who have to control the beast as a necessity (a trick they learn from night elf druids in the starting zone in the first place, lorewise they cannot shapeshift before that part of the quest chain) can be playable druids. Blood elves are the opposite of everything a druid needs to be and should therefore be the last race in the game to become a druid.
