The druid is the master of elements and the forces of mother nature. Their close ties with the powers of nature allow them to conjure elemental creatures of earth, air, fire, and water to assist them. The forest is the kingdom of the druid, where he is certainly in his element. The order of druids in Derlith is a complex hierarchy; the most experienced druids can call very powerful elemental creatures to fight for them, yet only those druids with the most stamina can hope to hold them to this world for long.
General Information Edit
- Druids are known to be magical, and such are their pets. They are known to be good casters and easily gain magical skill in all realms from conjuring.
- While they are not the best of healers, they still hold healing powers that are better than most other non-healer classes.
- Similar to rangers, druids thrive in the forest due to their superb searching, hiding, and tracking skills.
- Note that there are two types of track; a druid is able to do both.
- Along with strong magical powers, druids can toughen their defenses by making their skin as tough as bark. This barkskin ability may increase armor by a substantial amount.
- Druids' close ties with nature give them the ability to commune with their surroundings, detecting the presence of living creatures around them.
- Naturally, they are immune to any environmental damage caused by reaching vines in the room.
Armor type: Leather
Summary of Skills: Barkskin (level 7), Commune, Conjure, Track.
Benefits from Stats Edit
Suggested prime requisites are in magenta.
- Intelligence: If you plan on taking advantage of druidic magical abilities, INT is definitely what you will want to stack up on. But remember that conjuring pets will also help you raise magic skill, and thus INT is not as necessary as it is for other classes. But if you decide you would like stronger magical casts as well as good stuns, you will want to put a lot of points in this stat.
- Constitution: Some may choose to dump their stat points in this stat, which is good for high HP. Paired with barkskin, you will have strong physical defense.
- Piety: Regardless of whether or not you have used INT on your druid, the class itself receives a decent amount of MP. This means that you will probably want a moderate amount of PTY to regain this mana quickly with little downtime.
- Strength: Like the other conjuring classes, druids are a bit dependent on their elemental pets for damage. Consequently, STR is not as big of a priority but it is nice to have a bit to chip in some weapon damage to supplement damage dealt by your pet.
- Dexterity: Druid skills do not depend on DEX at all, and so it is not beneficial to put points in this stat.
