The original plan was to TR 3x Druid to get max summons. During my second druid TR, I realized I just couldn't go through another druid life just to TR again.

Instead, I chose Iconic and went Shaddar-kai. My first two levels were Rogue, and the rest were Druid. It's funny to watch a wolf standing in the middle of a sleet storm, whipping a chain around. :) Can't wait until I get earthquake too. :D

I made the mistake of doing a Druid splash with one to try Pass Without Trace with sneaking and assassinating. I thought the level one buffs would be cool too, but having to refresh them every 5 mins at level 15 is a PitA

I'm currently leveling a 1 Rogue/ 6 Monk/ 13 Druid staff wielder as a Shadar Kai. I'm not 100% sold on Shadar Kai, but I hate leveling the first 10 levels as a regular Human, and figured I'd knock out a Druid PL and an Iconic at the same time. I must say I LOVE the way it plays so far.

Slightly related to this:

I had been planning to go pure druid but am now reconsidering and am leaning toward 2-5 monk (already lawful aligned). I was simply wondering if Henshin mystic enhancements affect staffs while in wolf form?

To be honest, I don't switch into animal form. For giggles I did switch into Dire Bear and my impression was that the attack speed wasn't the same. I'm not sure about the enhancements but I'll hop into wolf later today and try it out. I've enjoyed Druid and may actually knock out a second druid life as a wolf so I may as well try and see what does/doesn't work.

Caster druid is so superior to melee druid for leveling that it's not even funny. They make even artificer leveling builds look sad. The amount of stuff you can solo effortlessly is ridiculous.

My main druid is currently 17 druid/2 monk/1 wizard.

Now that I've had a chance to dabble with the Druid, I'm definitely planning to go at it a second time, but as a caster. Might make an alt with a few past lives into one to get a feel for the caster build before I try it on my main. Is the 1 wizard for the extra feat?

They're also the strongest endgame casters as well. It seems a lot of people (rightfully) wrote off caster druids earlier and haven't played them lately to see how ridiculously powerful they are.

It also lets you pick up an SLA, +1% crits, and +10 Spellpower (Traditionalist Caster) for 6 APs in AM.

Thank you for the feedback. I'll definitely have to try one soon.

I've been playing 2 monk/9 druid as wolf, so so fun, but I find it hard to believe at lower levels that caster druid is easier. Going to have to start another alt.... Did 2 Rogue/ and druid not sure which I like most, I do feel its taking the easy path.

Also remember that the druid summoned scimitars are considered centered weapons for a monk.
