    Default Dwarf Pure Druid?

    So my account was compromised, I got it back and everything but not before some yahoo had some fun with it.

    He used the free +20 heart of wood we got from last xpac and LR'd my 20th kensai khopesh dwarf fighter into a 20th dwarf druid. I've not had time to really mess with druids and don't know much about them. Spell caster or melee, it does not matter much to me. However I do have an impressive array of Khopesh, so if I could keep them it would be awesome . He's still only 1st lifer.

    So what would you guys suggest for a 20th pure druid newbie? I already have another character that is TRd that I am working on so that is not an option right now.

    Cheers

    Getting your account jacked really sucks. Don't suppose you could plead your case to Turbine to get another LR +20 so you could switch back? Or heck, just an LR +3 so you can add some feats or something...

    For a caster druid, I would follow this outline; dwarf loses a feat (probably Enlarge or one of the Spell Focuses), but would otherwise be the same. OTOH, if you wanted a melee druid using khops: well, the obvious feats are TWF x3, khop prof, Power Atk, and IC:Slash. That leaves 1 heroic and 3 epic feats: one option is Cleave/GC/OC if you wanna focus exclusively on melee; another would be a couple of metamagics, like Emp Heal + Quicken; or Toughness + eToughness if you've got the CON for it.

    Consolation prize: Shillelagh works on Ironwood Khopesh, so base dmg goes to 3[1d8] on EE version.

    wow what a moron. but look at the bright side - he/she could have made the toon into some atrocious multi-class build like a wiz/bard/barb

    dwarf pure druid isn't actually that bad. i've been having a lot of fun with mine. really can't understand why someone would hack your account to do that. are the skills, feats, stats, etc. at least decent?

    good luck!

    At first I was gonna go purely for melee DPS; but then decided to put some effort into the caster side of things, if only because I didn't know what else to spend APs on. Even with low WIS, you have a few no-save caster DPS options (Produce Flame, Creeping Cold, Gtr Creeping Cold, Ice Storm), plus oodles of healing, buffs, and Sleet Storm. Heck, I'm half-tempted to pick up Storm of Vengeance SLA just because it looks cool, even though your DCs will be terrible.
