Best race for Druids?

Post by Caarn » Fri Nov 11, 2011 11:58 am

What race to you think is the best when it comes to making druids? and why?

Personaly I cant realy deside. I have been playing alot of diffrent builts for druids and I find them all good in their own way. Aelf and Elf gets an higher int wish is good when it comes to making dmg, but they are a bit glassy. Human gets desent int and con, so its a bit give and take there. Cent has the best con so you can take more dmg yourself if you solo pvp or farm/PL, but you need alot på int runes to get the int up imo.

I played elf when i first started playing druids, and liked the dmg it did. When i moved over to Aelf to get alittle more health and almost the same int and dmg. When the new servers started I played human and cant druids, and imo i found a good ballanse in both, but what do you guys thing?

I like human druids. Druids have so many good toys to put points in.

Human and Centaur are amazingly solid choices, but I'd have to say Aelf would be the best due to there kiting ability & great stat layouts

i second this.

for farming/PLing i think a human is best
for small scale pvp centaur or aelf
nuking off walls at a bane, elf(cause it doesnt matter how much you die, just how much you kill)

I could have sworn I just select "Reaps" at creation....

Nah but in all seriousness, if you want a druid you have to look at what you want.

Kiting like a boss and have tons of HP/Mana? Centaur

Best heals/damage without losing durability and amazing amount of skillpoints? Human

Snarebreak/Immunity to help kiting? Aelfborn

Want to suck really bad? Elf (180 int is not worth being squishy as hell, you can do it better with 140 or 160 int on any of the other choices.)

I'd only choose Human and Centaur, if I need a snarebreak/immunity then I must be running solo because anyone with dispel effect/debuff can handle that. But then again I don't feel aelfborn is needed outside of 1v1 or if there is an aelfborn spec, why? Because Centaur does it better, end of story.

But what will I choose 9/10 times? Human, unless I feel Centaur is needed. Centaur will most likely be my main with my new template I have tho. Well, after I run the numbers on DPS/trains/HPS/HP/MP/SP differences.

When I played I used a centaur druid, was handy for the speed and health. It was mainly to farm and PL my alternative toons. I enjoy the saved time when checking on respawns and item camps of the like, also didn't hurt if I needed to catch up to something like a player who is running from my barbarian.

But you don't need speed when you sit in one spot plvling. Yeah it helps you get there faster, but just log a full str vamp scout with the summon rune and chain yourself in.

True. Speed was it's big plus, mostly for checking camps than PL.

Obviously if you're gonna just sit in one spot and Plvl Elf with godly int would be the way to go.
Or Human i suppose. Idk whenever i used to PL i had a healbot/mino carry bot so i always rocked the elf high int kaboom droods

you can get some decent def on an elf and completely ignore the heal bot, mine never needed it. Besides a full str scout loot bot is superior to the mino one. GM track ftw, not to mention stealth to avoid mob aggro.

Interesting idea. Never really thought about a high str scout bot. I like that actually. But ya i only took the healbot out after they fixed lizards :P

It's all a matter of preference, but I alway enjoyed my Cent Druid- It could PL/Farm if you really needed it too but was pretty successful pvping. I hated being on a character purely built for pve, I always wanted to be able to defend myself.

The last few druids I built before the game went down were all aelf. PvE and PvP both went well for me. High def, con/int build and you get snare immunity.

Human FTW!

cent's not bad either...

Extra trains and good even stat distribution make Human the best option in my opinion for PL, Farm, and PVP.

how bout serious! If all these pl druids are going some dex why not go w/ the druid sword? it gives u atr/def and you get dammage. If you go elf or aelf you can use the resist debuff and nuke harder and dot harder in pvp. or human.
