Erdrique’s Next Life-Druid

Well, Erdrique has now started out his Druid life.  This is kind of an experiment to be honest.  I haven’t tried a Druid out yet and I tend to favor more melee oriented type builds than caster builds.  My main attempt here is to have a decent amount of melee strength to supplement my spell casting ability.  I thought about dual wielding but I didn’t want to take the two weapon feats because I’m trying to reuse the weapons I already own, a plethora of khopeshes.

In any case, this is what I’m thinking about:

  1. Your starting stats look similar to what I did (although mine’s a first life). Even though I’m mostly winter wolf focused with spells etc, I’ve now on epic levels started using water ellie form now and again, because she’s a much stronger caster than melee, and I often end up standing back casting spells instead of meleing. SLA spells are the shit, so to speak, my call lightning costs 6sp with all metas on and crits for about 1.5k. I use this even while meleing in wolf form. 🙂 But of course, I’m more used to playing a divine caster than a melee (I know, technically the druid isn’t divine, but close enough), so I naturally took caster feats and not melee.

    • Nice!! I’m hoping to have something like that but I think I’m going to put some focus on the dot spells. Just not sure yet to be honest. A friend of mine recommended dropping my starting Wisdom down to 16 and upping my Con to 18. Not sure on that one I already created Erd (as the picture shows above) so I would have to put him through a Lesser Reincarnation to do that, which isn’t a problem, but I want to see how this plays out first.

  2. I couldn’t even begin to give advice on a druid. And I am terrified about trying to play a caster but I have seen the melee druids push out some very good numbers for DPS. PnP I’d play a melee druid also just because with buffs they can out fighter a fighter. If you don’t mind me asking What server do you play on? I typically roll alts to test out build Ideas.
