Tips and hints

  1. When creating a character, you can select one animal transformation. The decision can't be reversed and you won't be able to access the next change during the game, so think over the right choice. For beginners, choosing the Spiritshift - Stag, which offers additional health and bonus to all types of defense.
  2. Druid is a character who very often uses spells, so they should not wear armor that increases the recovery time. The best choice will be robes (no penalty for recovery time), or light armor if you frequently change form and play as an animal.
  3. Intellect is the most significant attribute - Druid has many abilities allowing to deal area of effect damage, and Intellect increases the AoE. Apart from that, put some points into Might, to increase damage. Playing an Elf is a good choice here.
  4. During a skirmish, Druid may use a limited number of spells. This number increases as the power levels increase. Please visit the "Power Sources" page for more information.
