Title: Druid

Animal Lore is used in the casting of Druid spells, and calming fierce creatures to tame them.

Druid Staff

The Druid Staves are powerful tools. The first function we learned how to use was to cure the blights that infect the land. By speaking the words "nigh tir" while holding the staff a druid will start the healing process, if the druid was strong enough to cure that particular blight.
When we received the first of the druid spells we learned that by simply speaking the power words for the spell while holding the staff would enact the spell. It is highly recommended by many of the order to be able to speak the words at a moments notice.

Druid Staves can be made in the Druid Grove. To make the staff you will need to have 5 Reaper Heartwoods in your main backpack. Double click the table and select "Make Druid Staff".

Rune Bag

Runebags are the "Codex Damorium" of the druid. All of your runes need to be placed in the Runebag for you to be able to cast the spell. If you use the shortcut of saying the words while holding your Druid Staff the runebag will need to be located in your main backpack. To add runes to the runebag you will need to double click the rune and then target the runebag.

RuneBags can be made in the Druid Grove. To make the bag you will need to have 20 Serpent Hides (white hides) in your main backpack. Double click the table and select "Make Runebag".

Making Runes

Making the spell runes requires both your Druid knowledge and spell reagents. All runes will require either a Reaper or Ent Heartwood. To make the rune you need to use Animal Lore on the heartwood. You will then be prompted to select which spell you wish to make. Here is what you will need to make the various spells:

Spell Animal Lore Skill Reagents
Grasping Roots 60 1 Ent Heartwood, 10 Brimstone, 5 Nightshade

As you've no doubt noticed, we need raw spell regs to make some of our spell runes. While I have not been able to find the raw regs myself I've heard they can be found in the following locations:

Raw Ginseng The islands in the fourth tier of Shame
Raw Garlic The island in the third tier of Despise
Raw Nightshade The lowest (fourth?) tier of Destard
Raw Mandrake The crypts in the fourth tier of Deciet


Druid Staff Rune Bag Making Runes Spells

As stated previously the Druid spells are easy to cast while holding your staff. One thing I have noticed is that the macro you make must have the correct capitalization or the spell will not be cast. Here is a list of the spells, thier power words, magery skill requirements, mana usage, reg requirements and effects.

Spell Magery Needed Mana Used Power Words Reagents Effect
Grasping Roots 54 11 Tiolp Luibh 2 Brimstone
1 Nightshade
This spell summons the roots of surrounding trees to attack the target. Useful for drawing the heat off you to meditate, buff or heal.
Stinging Swarm 77 20 Sgob Sgaoth 1 Bee's Wax
1 Spider Silk
A swarm of bees will attack the target. The swarm will move with the target. Careful in combat with this one, anything or anyone too close to the swarm will also get stung. This can earn you a criminal flag or draw another player's summoned beasts onto you.
Wolf Pack 66 14 Filliu Prasgan 1 Raw Rib
1 Spider Silk
1 Blood Moss
This spell calls forth a number of spirit wolves based on your skill in magic. The wolves will act like any normal tamed animal responding to the same commands. Great against mobile targets and for drawing the heat off you.

1 Nightshade
Upon casting this spell you will take the form of a tree. When in this form you will not be attacked by any beast, and any attacking you will stop.
