1. Introduction:

Druids are the Sorcerers of the Firstborn who have learned the very essence of natural magic. They use their knowledge for curing the wounded and give support to allies in the battlefield. In case of danger, these Druids can slow the enemies' movements with plant roots or swarms of aggressive insects, and they can bring lightning down on their opponents.

Druids use Magic power. They are the only Class which can stun the enemies from ranged distance of 5 yards. Which is a good advantage for PvP (Player versus Player) fights. They are one of the strongest PVP characters.

Druids use magic power for healing character and allies. They are needed for hunting all Bosses. Which makes them important element of hunts.

Druids use magical staves and wear cloth armors

 

Lets talk about the Skills.

 

 

Skills

Druids like every other class has 2 types of skills, Active skills and Passive skills.

Active skills are the skills which are used directly during the battle and consume energy. They have cool down time and can be used again.

Passive skills are skills that add bonuses, and work all the time. They boost overall stats but are not used directly.

 

 

Passive Skill

Active Skills:

There are Base Active skills and Expert Active skills.

 

 

Base Active skills:

Each class learns 5 base active skills since the creation. Druid has the following Base Active skills:

Expert Active Skills:

Expert skills can be learnt at level 18, The skills are available in the library (Kamp-Gasphel, Nadir-Sard). The Manual "Forest Song" costs 40K gold. After using the manual a new Expert skill "Forest Song" is added. The new added skill will be at level 1. At reaching level 20, every character gets 2 additional skill points, which can be used to increase Expert Skill's level.

 

 

Forest Song

Опубликованное фотоОпубликованное фото

 

Forest song is an Expert skill learnt at level 18. All the enemies in a radius of 3 yards may fall asleep using forest song. Enemies fall asleep, but if they are touched(Attacked), they wake up which removes the effect. Using this skill 1-3 random enemies fall asleep within the radius. It fails 30-40%. It has 18 seconds cool down.

Level 1 forest song makes enemy fall asleep for 4 seconds, within 3 yards radius. It consumes 18 energy points.

Level 2 Forest song makes enemy fall asleep for 5 seconds, within 3 yards radius. It consumes 20 energy points.

Level 3 has 6 seconds duration, and it works for 3-4 yards radius. It consumes 22 energy points.

 

 

 

2. Character Development:

 

 

Creating a new Character:

 

Creating the new character is first step of having a Druid. Its simple, Select the empty slot, Then select faction, Druid belongs to Firstborn. Then Select Class, Which is of course Druid, There the Hero Appearance can be changed, Design your Hero with available Gender, Hair color and Haircuts. Enter the Hero name and Druid is created.

Quests at Melvendil - Isle of Firstborn are easier than chosen faction.

 

 

Skill build for different levels:

 

Level 6:

 

Arena Char:

Lightning 1, Healing 4, Barkskin 1, Root 1, Swarm 1

Low levels have low dmg, so high heal is very useful for druid at level 6. Barkskin increases defence, Root lasts 2.4 seconds.

 

Lightning 2, healing 3, Barkskin 1, Root 1, Swarm 1

Damage is good too, can use Lightning bolt at level 2.

 

Normal Char:

Lightning 1, Healing 4, Barkskin 1, Root 1, Swarm 1

While leveling character, Druid faces mobs and bosses, Its better having a high heal.

 

 

Level 10:

Arena Char:

Lightning 1, Healing 5, Barkskin 1, Root 3, Swarm 1

High heal is very useful, still characters have low damage.  Root at level 3 helps defend the Druid. Can heal Allies too

 

Normal Char:

Lightning 3, Healing 5, Barkskin 1, Root 1, Swarm 1

Full heal and some damage helps questing.

 

Level 14:

 

Arena Char:

Lightning 1, Healing 5, Barkskin 1, Root 5, Swarm 1

Level 5 Root helps alot in arena 2x2, Rooting 1 opponent , and Killing other (2v1).Lightning 2, Healing 5, Barkskin 1, Root 4, Swarm 1Lightning at level 2, helps do more damage.

 

Normal Char:

Lightning 3, Healing 5, Barkskin 1, Root 2, Swarm 1

Heal and lightning helps with quests, but Root at 2 helps Root mobs.

 

 

Level 18:

 

Arena Char:

Lightning 3, Healing 5, Barkskin 1, Root 5, Swarm 1, Forest song 1.

This skill build has a nice combination of Heal, Root and Damage.

 

Normal Char:

Lightning 5, Healing 5, Barkskin 1, Root 3, Swarm 1, Forest song 1

 

 

Different types of skill builds at level 20:

 

Farming Skill build:

Lightning 1, Healing 5, Barkskin 5, Root 3, Swarm 1, Forest Song 3. (Forest song is useful for Astral labyrinth)

 

 

Arena Skill build:

Lightning 3, Healing 5, Barkskin 1, Root 5, Swarm 1, Forest Song 3.

Lightning 1, Healing 5, Barkskin 3, Root 5, Swarm 1, Forest Song 3.

 

 

Against melees:

Lightning 1, healing 5, barkskin 1, Root 5, Swarm 3, Forest Song 3.

 

 

Mix Skill build:

Same as arena skill build, or can change Lightning 4, Forest song 2.

 

 

 

Equipments:

Level 1-9: Use "Novice Druid's outfit".

 

Level 9-12: Use level 9 items from Ilhor shop.

 

Level 13-14: Use level 13 items. Boss drop at Iselnort. (Maraksha, Dinalt, Kratt, Genie, and Gariel)

 

Level 15-17: Use berengar's items. Hood, chest, Amulet can be bought from Virtue Dealer at Nadir (After completing the chainless league). Other items can be obtained from Bosses at Berengar's stronghold.

 

Level 17: Use Arena items, Full arena set. Can be bought from Arena dealer at Kamp-Gasphel using Arena points

 

Level 18-20: Use full Guiding Thread set With Arena belt (Chest and Boots Resilience Enchanted) . Or can use Guiding Thread + Arena items..

 

 

3. Arena (PvP)

If you have decided to be a Druid, Then Patience and Wisdom is all you need.Arena:Druid is the only Elf/Chosen character who can stun enemy from a ranged distance (5 yards), so Its better druid reach the enemy before his allies and Root the enemy who can stun, like Warlock, Necromancer, Death Knight, Druid, Paladin, Blade Dancer, Barbarian. then stun the healers so they couldn't use healing skills like Necromancer, Priest, Shaman, Druid. or If he was attacked by melees better Root them. I personally like Druid+Priest combination for Arena 2x2, they can heal each other, which doubles the heal, and kill opponents.

 

 

Kiting:

Опубликованное фотоОпубликованное фотоОпубликованное фотоОпубликованное фотоОпубликованное фото

Kiting is hitting opponent, stunning him/her, keeping distance(some players call it running), so the health of the character is filled and the opponent is dead. Its always useful, but best used against melees. :lol: 

 

How to kite:

 

Use lightning, root the opponent , heal yourself, swarm opponent, keep distance.... repeat it. till opponent is deadIf its Rogue, Root, Lightning, heal yourself, just before Root ends use swarm, keep distance till root cools down.. repeat it

 

 

4. Farming (PVE)

Farming is killing Bosses for drops. There are lots of Bosses in different maps, dropping different items. Farming bosses needs a party. Farming party consists of a Tank (Character with high defense) and a Healer (Druid/Priest).

Bosses at Iselnort drops level 13 items, like Maraksha, Dinalt, Kratt, Genie, Gariel. Druids as low as level 12, can hunt these bosses.

Berengar's Bosses (Guntrum, Drogon, Lambert) at Berengar's stronghold, Drop level 15 items. Level 14 druid can hunt BG bosses.

Astral labyrinth is another map. Laby has 9 bosses, first 3(Herald, Scorpion, Chief) Drops level 17 items. Other 5(Alien, Medusa, Echidna, Anax, Red eye and Blue Eye) Bosses drop level 18 equipments.

Norlant Swamps: Druids are good for doing Norlant swamp quests. They heal themselves and root mobs.

some small corrections..

 

They are the only Class which can stun the enemies from ranged distance of 5 yards. Which is a good advantage for PvP (Player versus Player) fights.

Shaman blind = 5 yards.

Warlock circle = 6-7 yards.

 

also you forgot to mention forest song sleep chance increases with higher skill level. at level 4 it's like 90% success rate on everyone around you.

 

Nevertheless, nice detailed guide, I hope you expand it with info about the other expert skills.
