Druid is a class in Pillars of Eternity 2. Animists with primal connection to nature, who can transform into mythical beasts. They have many Area of Effect spells, that emphasize aflliction based effects and their beast modes give them nice single-target strikes and gain special abilities associated with those beasts.

 

"They are animists, drawing power through the webs they believe connects all living souls in the world. When not casting spells and transforming into mythical beasts, druids spend a great deal of time in nature, giving them skill foci in Athletics and Survival. Much like priests, druids draw ambient fragments of soul energy toward them and shape their effects through practiced concentration. While druids do not have the diverse spell repertoire of wizards, they have more than enough to handle most problems that come their way. Druids' spells often take the form of natural phenomena—storms, coiling plants, rapid decay—to reflect their primal connection to the world. Despite their heavily offensive nature, they do have a few defensive and healing spells to aid their allies."

  

 

Druid Tips & Builds

  • A full list of builds for all classes can be found on the Builds page.
  • Druids can Spiritshift once per encounter into the animal they selected during Character Creation. Each animal has different effects, so knowing what these are is important. However, Furys change into only a Storm Blight and Shifters can change into each animal once per combat.
  • Intellect is very important to the Druid because they have many AoEs that have their radius increased by it and their Spiritshift Duration is also increased.
  • When Spiritshfited, the Druids Weapons are replaced with the Weapons of the animal it shifted into, and is always 2 One-Handed Weapons, except in the case of the Fury, where it's Two-Handed.
  • Sunbeam is an excellent early spell the Druid can take advantage of. It does modest damage, but does it in an AoE and Blinds the targets. Blind targets have their Recovery Time increased by 100%!
  • Taste of the Hunt is another excellent early game Ability that does incredible damage and also heals you. Because it is a melee ranged Ability, it is best used when Spiritshifted.
