Druids - no longer in demand?
Posted by Jaret on 02/08
Recently I have seen a trend where people no longer want to group with
druids as much as they used to. Sure if there is some huge mob
to kill or a SL run going a druid is wanted, but not for normal
old XP runs. Often i log on and ask on chat if anyone needs my services
and get no replies -shrug- Since I cant fight for myself this can get
rather boring :P
I am not really sure what the reason for this is - druids seemed more in
demand in the past. Possibly people now prefer surgeons who can also
fight, or even spam surgeons. Anyway this is not a complaint, I
am just making an observation, and would like to hear other peoples

Druids don't have to be 100 spi/mind you know,
unless they want to be mages as well..
A druid can be 100 spi / 100 some fighting stat and
fight very well for himself/herself..
maybe something to consider? :)

Druids better be 100 spi/ 100 something else, at least if they
don't wish to be treated like professional leeches.

i always look for druids, but it helps if they are already
stocked with herbs, instead of having to
get them after they offer their services.

its always a nice idea for you to birng a druid the herbs they need
when you need their services. Not saying this should always be
the case, but its a good thing. And about the fighting/druid thing
its really not that fun because you can't kill a whole lot with
just one fighting stat and nothing else high that helps at all
in fighting. believe me, i made such a character and couldn't kill
very tough mobs (this might have changed since new fighting system
though so if people have since, then ignore above statement) Anyway,
100spi/mind is in my opinion still most fun druid type to play

I have a druid with 100 spir, 80 con, and pretty nice other
stats. He manages quite well by himself, since I opted for
rather 'low' mind (50) in order to be able to fight.
About how druids 'should already be stocked up on herbs',
remember it's quite expensive gathering herbs, and as in
my case - having 2 full DERT bags - it gets rather renty.

Try being a druid with a bit less spirit. Root is a real
nice skill. If you try for 100 dex with high con
and you can get by with around 35 spirit, and can
remove some dex -spirit eq for root, and borrow eq or
gather up a load of spirit eq for an afternoon of
100 spirit poulticiing. Fighting Druid/Mages always had
more potential than pure fighters or mages imo.
