I really wish there was a non-shifting Druid kit


Recommended Posts

Whoa, if the claws are 2-handed the Fury really is a lot weaker than the other subclasses...!

Well the Fury is supposed to be an offensive caster subclass. You get some bonuses on your offensive elemental spells and also a kind of "escape" ability that's not a spell. Sadly all offensive casters are (still) bad with the current beta build - a few whimpy bonuses don't help that.

I appreciate that, but it still doesn’t super make sense for its spiritshift form’s weapon to be 2-handed, IMO

No it doesn't make a lot of sense and should be changed to dual wielding (like dual wands). I just wanted to say that in this case the two-handed approach wouldn't hurt this special subclass very much if it could only deliver a good casting experience. You wouldn't attack with your natural weapons a lot anyways i you could instead deliver some good elemental nukes + CC.

it think shifter is actually best for "non shifter" druid play, since you cant cast while shifted and doesn't have any special mechanics tied to shifting and spellcasting, it can be used purely as defensive/last ditch tool

 

I have no idea what you say about last ditch tool for shifter... As a Shifter you can shift 5 forms and each forms will heal you a lot hp and Spiritual form has high armor and fast attack speed. The best strategy for a Shifter is shift and attack for a small combat, or cast Returning Storm/Relentless Storm and then shift and tank for big combat.

 

If you just cast and use shifting as a last ditch tool, you are not playing it right and pure druid might be a better choice for you.

How about introducing a non-shifting druid w/ the benefit of encounter based spells & inability to shift due to extreme dislike & personal belief system? I want to be one w/ nature but I don't want to be a lycanthrope!!! 

 

At least druids can control when they change! Hint hint, DLC or (microtransaction: encounter based spells for your caster)!

All casters have encounter based spells by default now. There are no per rest spells anymore.
