Description

Druids in Dark and Darker are a more combat focused alternative to the cleric class with the ability to shapeshift into various forms with great combat potential and cast spells to heal themselves and allies. They also offer the ability to zone enemies using their treant, entangling vines and thorn barrier spells. They have a high mobility and so are great at running into and running from combat.
