    Children of the wild gods and death

    So we know that when wild gods die their souls return to the dream and they eventually reincarnate. But what about their children? I've found lore that suggests that the spirits of dryads and such return to the dream, but can they eventually reincarnate too?

    Only beings bound to the Emerald Dream go there even if not descendant of a Wild God (which themselves have no inherent connection). Otherwise they go to the Shadowlands like everything else. Tauren are descendant of a Wild God and die just like normal.

    ...as much have some have wished otherwise, yes. (Loreology)

    I see, but some lore says that animals, dryads, and such go to the dream once they die. OK so, another question, what if you died in the dream?

    Best of luck with that - stormcrows still haven't been added to the game despite the mount existing in the game files since patch 5.4.0.17191.

    Albert: "No, it won’t!"
    Death: "THEN IT WILL BE A NAUGHTY DEED IN A NAUGHTY WORLD AND WILL PASS COMPLETELY UNNOTICED."

    Ursoc was killed in the dream and I think he appeared at the end of the raid anyway.

    I wondered about that as well. Perhaps his spirit can still manifest, but he can't manifest in the physical realm? Or it could just be an oversight on Blizzard's part. I always equated the Nether and the Dream to each other.

    Maybe the Nightmare is not part of the Dream but rather a separate demiplane that supplants the Dream wherever it spreads.

    Keep in mind that there is a difference between dying physically and having your spirit be destroyed.
