Hello

Have played my completionist toon as a druid some time now and he is specced as a caster.

The class is fun and really nice and entertaining now with all the slas. Great job!!

But.. I find the elemental forms underwhelming.

Druids have veru few spells, and because you get -3 in all spells not in your element it be way too much is my experience.

My first suggestion is to make a feat at lvl 19 and 20 who improves the elemental forms. (or if Turbine want to encourage multiclassers make one 17 and one 19 maybe).
And this improved form lessen the - to 1 or get rid of it entirely. And maybe even make the + go up one or two levels.

Suggestion nr2 is to get some more spells for the druid. If you play a pure caster or animal you cant even fill the spell list with spells for that type. It just feel "not finished".


If this is too much time investments, maybe just change the elementalforms as they are to lessen penalty from -3 to -1 and it would be way funnier and more good spell options to use.

Thanks for listening and please give feedback! (especially if you have experience playing a caster druid)

Play your druid caster in Shiradi. Win. All these pesky form problems mean absolutely nothing.

with all the weapon-specific trees in other classes, elemental is a viable form now for non-animal melee combat. Fort, immunities, selfheals even for WF, and full access to, ie, Henshin or Acrobat staff combat, Tempest TWF, Assassin kukris, Ninja shortswords, etc etc. Basically full melee weapon combat toolbox plus Druid heals, buffs, dots, maybe even cc if youre a wis-focused monk. 15/5 builds give you Heal and one elemental form and 5 tiers in your splash.

You DO know that you can switch between the forms, so that -3 doesnt do much harm?
