Hey all, Captainrussia is back with a quick Meta spotlight for you guys!
This time around I’d like to take a quick look at the Druid/nature changes that landed with the Percival Mid-season patch on Sept 18th.
[For those not up to date – the Thorns spell got completely remade and moved from W slot to Q slot]
Here is the link to the Patch notes: https://albiononline.com/en/changelog/PERCIVAL%20PATCH%205
I have not really heard much feedback or seen anyone upload any vids, and some of the feedback I saw was kind of negative or very mixed (and polarized) – some people were saying that the new “Thorns” Druid is super OP, others were complaining how its complete “trash” and has been made unplayable.
So, I had to go in and investigate! In order to try out the new Druid – I decided to test it in a Solo Random Dungeon, then I did some Duels in the city (because my spec on Nature is like 5/100, so doing real PVP was kind of out of the question) and then I even tried to test my “you are what you wear” theory and do some dungeon tanking as a main tank.
I don’t want to provide any spoilers – so I’ll let you watch my test results in the video below – however I will say that I had a blast!
