Druid

From Neversummer 4 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Description: Druids are divine spellcasters who receive their spells from nature, not the gods. They strive to live in harmony with the natural world, and hate anything that is not part of the natural cycle, especially aberrations and undead creatures. As they gain experience, they learn to take the shapes of animals and eventually of more powerful creatures. The strict oaths taken by every druid prohibit using weapons and armor outside their traditions.

In Neversummer 4, a druid gains bonus spell slots for their 5th-9th level spells starting at level 26. The bonus spell slot progression can be seen in the epic druid level progression below.

Notes

  • The druid and Shifter shapeshifting feats cannot be dispelled.
  • For general information on NS4 shifting mechanics, see the Shifting Guide.
  • Druids cannot take the weapon proficiency (Simple, martial, or exotic) feats on a druid level. An elven druid will receive racial bonus proficiencies in longsword, rapier, longbow, and shortbow, or a level of a second class can be taken to gain its class weapon proficiencies.
  • In order to attain Dragon Shape, you must not take any other Classes besides Druid and Shifter.
  • Animal Companions have been disabled in Neversummer 4. It remains to be known if they will come back or not. It depends if all the bugs can be worked out of them along with balance issues.
  • If druid is also a cleric with healing domain, then only druid healing spells bonus is given... they don't stack.
  • WARNING - If you are polymorphed in any way shape or form, DO NOT take a level until you go back to your true form. There are several possible bugs that have been associated with this. From characters being invalidated due to an incorrect amount of skill points, which means the server will autoboot that character. To RDD stat bonuses not being applied at all, and a whole lot in between. As you can see this can really hose up your character. So please, return to your normal shape prior to clicking the level up button.
