Summary

The Druid is a vocation that can fill several roles, but is primarily an attacker with strong area-of-effect attacks. They are unique in that their spells are categorized as skills, and cover a variety of different elements. However, their most unique aspect is being able to call forth a spirit during battle. Depending on which spirit is called, it can fill the role of healer, caster, physical attacker, or a supporter. Summons begin at a fixed level of 90, but can be upgraded later to level 110. Summons do not have HP, and cannot be hit by any attacks, making them a useful ally in many situations. One of the Druid's drawbacks, however, is that their abilities cost quite a bit of MP, so make sure to bring a party member that can restore MP if your maximum MP is on the lower side.

Strategy

The Druid can use the ability Summon Spirit (げんま召喚 Genma shōkan) to summon one of its 4 spirits into battle. The spirits each have different abilities they can use during combat, and act as an AI controlled party member that doesn't have HP and MP and cannot be targeted by the enemy's attacks. Selecting the ability Summon Spirit itself will open a list where the druid can choose which spirit to summon, or they can use each spirit's summoning individual skill instead. The Druid also has access to the ability Spirit Release (げんま解放 Genma kaihō), which allows the spirit to perform its special ability.

  • A party can only have 1 summon active at a time and each summon lasts for 2 minutes before it disappears and needs to be re-summoned using the ability. When in content that allows more than 4 players, each 4 player party is allowed 1 summon at a time.
  • Because the summons are untargetable, they are also not able to push or block the enemy from moving.
  • In the case of everyone in the party dying besides the summon, the battle is considered to be lost.
  • If another Druid attempts to summon a spirit while one is active, the former will disappear and the new spirit will be summoned instead.
  • Spirits cannot have tactics set like normal AI party members and will act based on their own set behavior.
  • Spirits come with a fixed level of 90 and can later be upgraded up to level 110 by completing quests.

Details about the 4 spirits can be found at the Spirits page.
