Duris Wiki

Druids are powerful priestly types that concentrate their discipline toward
the betterment of nature and world preservation. They generally worship
deities of the forest and of nature and will dispatch anyone attempting to
desecrate or destroy a forest. Although their spell-like powers are
primarily defensive in nature, they do command some very potent offensive
magic once they attain the higher circles.

The Druid class does not pray for spells like other "priests" for they have
shunned the pantheon of gods and allied themselves with the natural world
instead. They must "commune" with their surroundings to derive the natural
essence that is necessary for their spell slots to refill automatically as
long as they are not fighting, casting, unconscious, etc. It is unnecessary
to designate a specific array of spells to memorize as the essence is
automatically channeled into the highest circle that is not completely full
before it is channeled into lower circles, thus it is impossible to
prioritize what spells to regain first. The rate of spell recovery depends
on the availability of natural essence in the Druid"s surroundings. This
essence is readily available in forests, but becomes more scarce on other
types of terrain, especially indoors or under ground.
Overall, Druids have slower, more constant spell recovery.

==Equipment Usage==
Druids fall under the Priest classification of item restriction. This means
they are generally restricted to the use of non-edged weapons. Some exceptions
are made depending on which deity the druid worships. They can wear almost all
types of armor, and are only mildly restricted in usage of certain miscellaneous
magical items.
