Strategy[edit | edit source]

Glowfly Swarm is a essential in Spell Druid decks with a deck. If played on curve, it will be super efficient in terms of stats for its 5 mana providing up to 14/14 worth of stats in terms. Spell-focused Aggro Druids can also benefit from Glowfly Swarm as another Force of Nature, even if they don't get all 7 minions. If left unanswered, Power of the Wild, Savage Roar, Blessing of the Ancients, Gift of the Wild, and Mark of the Lotus turn a board of tokens into very powerful minions capable of destroying the enemy hero quickly.

Soul of the Forest provides your tokens an additional token with the same stats essentially providing two lives of each token.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Glowflies are a subspecies of Firefly.

From Wowpedia:

Fireflies are glowing, winged insect creatures found in Azeroth, Outland, and Draenor. Adventurers hunt them for their beautiful diaphanous wings.
Commonly used by sporelingss as a light source as they navigate the waterways of Zangarmarsh, this luminescent insect helps them avoid the dangerous bogflare needlers. Scholars have debated at length about how fireflies glow, but the leading hypothesis is "magic". They feed on small leaves and grass, but one species is known to consume purple flowers and nectar to retain a deep violet glow.
Glowflies use their luminescent to attract mates, while waterflies use the surface of water to reflect the light from their abdomen to attract their mates. On very rare occasions glowflies synchronize their flashing creating a spectacular sight for any adventurer lucky enough to catch this phenomenon. Some species native to the Jade Forest are attracted to the latent energy in shrines.
