DRUID YAWP

Finally got a Druid winner. Second try to make it to the End game (curse you Azathoth!!!), 3rd or 4th one I got past stat gain, about 10th try overall. Pretty much an identical learning curve that I had with the Brigand.

Re: DRUID YAWP

Congratulations! Another one bites the dust!

I'll see when and if I can get that notch on my belt ... perhaps just take the normal monster-quests all the way down as was my standard for a long while. Or no quests. Faster game is a good thing, since lately I've grown bored with my characters ... and that usually leads to sloppy play. Interesting to see how the spells and nativity can pan out against Morgoth ... or if you just have to use bow or even melee.

I've returned to Dungeons and Dragons Online after a few months of abscence, so I'll probably not play NPP as much as lately. The guys finally  convinced me :
There's two new modules. Lots of quests. Higher level cap etc etc. Wasn't any of that which got me back, but the guys themselves. Fun to cooperate in games ... as a counterpoint to Angband!

Re: DRUID YAWP

Nice job.  I look forward to your comments.  The glaive of pain combined with that elemental brand weapon spell is probably pretty powerful, even with a druid.

Re: DRUID YAWP

The Elemental Brand is important. I propably could never have defeated Sauron without the 2x Acid Damage.

Half-Troll druids aren't that bad. They could actually get a pretty nice early game if they got lucky with an early Ring of Strenght form the BM. Once you get multiple blows, the extra protection from Bark Skin makes for some effective melee. Actually, if a HT Druid could start with 2 blows, it would definetly be the second best Druid race after Dunadan.

Now I'll comment on the Druid class and on the characters progression thru the early-, mid- and end games:

The first few levels are a bit tougher than for other classes, (Priests and Mages get gold from point buying stats and starting equipment, while the other classes have good offense to start with) since Druids are quite poor and are pretty much forced into autorolling for decent spell stats and strenght. But there's nothing wrong with that.

Once you get the beam of cold, things get easier since it allows you to control hordes, like cave dweller nests and orc pits a lot easier than mages ever could. I seriously recommend turning the cold beam into an arc (so it deals less damage at a distance) and changing the damage dice from d8 to d7, so that it won't evetually deal more damage than a Fire Beam does, like it does currently.

The next big step is Drain Life Burst, which turned out to be alot better than I anticipated at first. The 2 most effective ways I found for it's use were to fill a corridor with the bursts, rest and then lure hordes of monsters into the corridor. The second, more on a moments notice tactic was to stand at the entrance of a room fighting just one monster from a group while the rest were waiting their turn in the Burst radius. It was a very nice source of extra damage when I was taking on pits/nests.

The beginning of the mid game is heralded by Frost Ball and Elemental Brand combined with either getting a weapon with extra blows or enough strenght for multiple blows with a light weapon. This is where my character found Angrist, (+4 speed, +4 dex) soon after he got 18/10 dex and went from one blow to 3 allowing me to use melee, Bark Skin and Heal as a primary source of damage.

The double spell stat disadvantage calls for a slower stat gain progression than what I'm used to with other classes.

The biggest danger for my character during dlvls 35-50 were Power Drakes. A few good Druids were already lost to a double breath of high elements whose threat I previously had underestimated. This time I spent a longer time on stat gain so I would get Drain Life Arc and enough mana to handle the inevitable Power Drakes in the 'd' pits. Apparently, I spent 1 000 000 turns (!!!) on dlvl 44 maxxing out my stats and looking for better equipment. I was short on Con at the time, so after I found Balli Stonehand (also gave me res_blind finally) I was good to go. I wanted 18/200 CON for handling Cyclopses (Power Drakes and Drolems are the only things I fear more than Cyclopses, they are my bane, for some reason) from the cave dweller nest on dlvl 47. It turned out to be overshooting since there were only 4 or 5 Cyclopses in the nest when I got around to it. But at least I was quite safe diving deeper after that.

After finishing stat gain and finding Balli, I had Res_Basic, Poison, confusion, blindness and sound and 0% fail rate so I started diving as fast as I could while completing quests. The whole way throught up to finding the Glaive of Pain (my favorite weapon, ever, I like the symmetry of dealing damage equally to all) was a series of situations where I find something good, notice that I need some other improvement for my kit before I can use it and next find something that fills the criteria for using the previous item.

The end game was pretty much the same as it is for a priest, except that you don't have anything like the Orb of Draining. Hopefully the drop on the mana costs of Nature's Fury and Arda's Habitats for the next release will fix this. As is, aside from Iciling heat based creatures, I never got any good use out of the spells until Lava Ball, which had enough punch to take down a Balance Wyrm, if you didn't fail to cast more than once and if he didn't summon something. Sadly, one of those "if"s usually were in effect. sad

Water Ball and Sand Storm suffer really badly from the fact that they are obsolete by the time you find Nature's Fury. If they were in the first Dungeon Book, they would have seen alot more use. Lava Ball, once Lava Nativity's high cost is accounted for, will actually be very good if you find a convinient lava pool when you need it.

I was somewhat dissappointed to find that Morgoth resists Lava, which forced me to use other, less cool ranged attacks (Light Beam because I could not hit him with Cubracol) to annoy his light sensitive eyes while he spent his mana on Summons and Mana Storms. After he was low on mana I closed in for the kill with the Glaive of Pain.

That's all I can think of at the moment. I will propably turn my attentions to playing Iron Man Rangers next. From the looks of it the Ranger could be the ultimate Iron Man character.

As a last note, IMO the inferiority of a Druid's Healing to a Priest's is quite subtle and effective. IMO, you did a Really Great Job(tm) on the current mana costs and effects for them.

Geez, it took me and hour to write that? tongue

Re: DRUID YAWP

I like to play a hobbit druid using point based generation with STR=9, INT=WIS=18/30 and 700 gold points. Of course, I tend to use archery when mana is low.

Life Drain Burt is an extremely powerful spell in the early game. Combined with bark skin this spell makes you unstopable against the non-spellcaster uniques, and of course some pit/nest like cave dwellers and orcs are quickly finished (easy quests). I'm afraid that this spell is a bit unbalanced. 150 hit points of damage are okay for a level 50 character but it seems a bit too much in the beginning. What do you think?

I thought that the druid was the ultimate ironman class smile
The first two books have spells that solve many things for ironman characters, like bark skin, nourishment, stone to mud, trap door destruction, ray of light, etc. Only identify is missing.

Re: DRUID YAWP

Well, the Ranger also has good melee and better archery, which I find quite key in Iron Man. While the Druid's easier access to ID is indeed hard to pass up, I still give the nod to the Ranger. Also, the weakness and/or conditionality of the druids damage spells in the mid and late game will hurt them badly eventually.

It is possible that I didn't really abuse Drain Life Burst in a way that made it feel overpowered. Even with Bark Skin, the Orcs/whatever from the pits did get their licks in, particulary the faster than normal Uniques. But I don't see why it could not start at a lower damage and progress from there. The difference between 150 and 100 damage is minor after all against Orcs, while it is important when you get to fighting 'd's and 'P's.
