    Angry How do you kill a Dryad?!

    Sounds easy, but I find it difficult to do when I am running solo. Is there any tips on who to get rid of the pesky "woody witches"? Is ther still plant bane and does that help? Does it do damage to the Dyrad AND the tree form or only tree form?

    You need to kill the tree (for those dryads that have them) while they're in the tree.

    Good point, I need to play my DC casters more, obviously.

    So.... Plant bane is your friend for non magic casters. or if i can assassinate them if they are in Dryad mode. What class of creature are they? Will Banishing waepons work on them?

    Run past them when they retreat into their tree? I think there's only like 1 quest where you have to kill one (it's the end boss).

    I'm assuming you are a melee as most other builds have an easier time.

    Killing dryads is all about burst DPS.

    First, get the actual dryad to low HP without using any of your main burst damage abilities (Haste Boost, Damage Boost, Momentum Swing/Lay Waste, Adrenaline, etc).

    Then, actually get the dryad into its tree and while you are running to the tree, drink a Haste potion and hit all of those short duration burst damage effects. Then get the tree down as fast as you can.

    They are a mongrel to solo on epic elite, but should be pretty manageable on other difficulties.
    I don't have a zerging problem.

    I'm zerging. That's YOUR problem.

    And that was a bugger the first time I ran that alone. Lit II repeater and Toven's Hammer eventually proc'd enough to take the tree down. Took me about 4 rounds.

    Stunning Fist, then beat her down. As soon as she's done, run over to her tree and start swinging. Unfortunately the devs effed up the hit boxes for the trees in Lost in the Swamp.
    Things worthy of Standing Stone going EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on.:
    • NEW - Fix the flipping non-proficiency penalties for wildshape!
    • Redo the Favor rewards so there is a reason to do max favor again.
    • Redoing the drop rates of tomes in generic and raid loot tables.
    • Task Lynnabel with updating the remaining legacy named loot to not suck.
    • Tiering the Runearms so that artificers aren’t screwed out of the advantages of Cannith Crafting in Epic levels on their signature item.
    • Finishing the enhancement tree passes (including racial PrE’s) before rolling out yet another DDOStore™ Enhancement Tree.
