I know there are many duplicate threads of this but I was simply wondering what some people would come up for this if druids were a real class in DDO

I assume there will be a long development of 3 prestiges.

One will push in the shapechanging, probably only available if you take the prestige. First tier being something that gives a minor boost to stats and has a decent natural weapon, like a wolf. Second tier being something more like a panther. Third tier being something powerful like a bear.

Another will push the summoning aspect of Druids and possibly some nature based skills/abilities. This would proably allow you to summon nature's ally much better, possibly require the feat augment summoning. Also it may allow you to summon a familiar, based upon the tier of the prestige.

The third will push in combat casting, boosting the spell damage. Simple enough, no real explanation for this.

Enhancement - shoot lightning bolts from your eyes when in bear form.

Hoverbear

Enhancement - You are a proud member of the hoverbear cavalry and are immune to all knockdown/movement impeding effects. You also float.

unless they do some sort of alt type of druid all of them should get shapshifting

Druids will never be in game.

They promise them to quiet the forums, then later state...next year.

they have said next year 4 years in a row.

Druids = vaporware

I know this is a semi-Necro, but why the heck not:

Shifter/Master of Many Forms - This seems like the most solid guesstimate. A PrE that focuses on being a better shapeshifter, possibly to make druid a better melee. I expect a 5 teir progression. Also, due to the issues with shapeshifting, and the need to potentially create new models just to make this work, this will likely be the *last* PrE introduced.

Verdant Lord - The healer PrE, focused on Heal Over Time spells (e.g. Rejuvenation - Can't seem to find a google link to the actual spell descriptions from 3.5). Side bonus of plant-like immunities, and perhaps boosts to some other kinds of spellcasting.

Beastlord - Summoner. This seems iffy, as summoning is renown for how *weak* it is. However, being able to buff up both summons and possible animal companion, and maybe being able to have stackable short-term (Short cooldown, but also short duration, can have 1 or more short-term summons out in addition to standard 10 minute summon and companion) summons for very specific purposes (Mobile DoTs if you will, or perhaps mobile buff/heal/cc/whatever a-la Unicorns, Treants, etc). This path would likely be a good buffer, as well.

Other Possibilities:

Planar Shepard - An Eberron specific druid prestige. Ability to call upon various planar effects and abilites, wildshape into creatures from a chosen plane, or even summon spheres of planar influence (A-la Prisoner of the Planes). Offensive caster/debuffer niche.

Storm Lord - Make it rain, make it rain! Obviously this guy is all about lightning, rain, sleet, snow, winds and ruining a good picnic. Offensive caster niche.

Blighter - The Anti-Druid, what Blackguard is to Paladin. Seems unlikely, and would require a lot of coding i would expect. Would basically be an entire prestige class based around Horrid Wilting :D

King/Queen of the Wild - Just... more... druidyness i guess?

Oozemaster - Cause theres always room for Gelatinous Cubes!

Actually, if I were a Dev, I'd use the following:

Gatekeeper -- Casting focused, grants special abilities against Aberrations.

Ashbound -- Shapeshifting and combat focused

Wardens of the Wild -- Summoning focused.

Same basic breakdown of powers, but the names fit the lore better.
