Druid’s Deep has the feel of a rushed-out pack that was released while much of the developer focus was on other things. The one interesting element is that the enemies are mostly plants and animals, which is a bit of a curve ball in terms of melee weapons. Put away those holy swords and find your best neutral beaters!
The first three flagging quests are super short and thrown together. Put it this way: MotU is known for short quests, and the first Druid’s Deep quest re-uses the dungeon from the shortest MotU in-town quest. Not a great introduction to the pack. The second quest is another super short, claustrophobic quest set inside a house. We move from short to medium length with the third quest, but finally the last quest is almost big, albeit underdeveloped. The artwork is pretty nice but the overall design feels like an afterthought.
Soloing is pretty easy because the traps are just the non-threatening bear traps and spike pits and the challenge is fairly low, with the exception of maybe two fights in the whole pack. Grouping may be tough due to this pack being such a low priority and minimal value.
There is some okay gear sprinkled around the chain, any of which will also show up in its "normal" version in the chain reward. The best is Ivy Wraps, but Leaves of the Forest is nice as well. Druid’s Deep also gives you a choice of commendations, any type, in stacks of three as a chain reward, so if you’re trying to finish off a commendation set the chain reward may be the simplest way to go.
The only real value from Druid’s Deep is if you don’t own Menace of the Underdark but want commendation gear. Short of that, it’s an okay pack once you own most other content or if you’re just looking to have as much variety as possible for your for epic xp.
Druid's Deep was introduced after sirgog's reviews.
