Druid is a class in Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

Within the purity of the elements and the order of the wilds lingers a power beyond the marvels of civilization. Furtive yet undeniable, these primal magics are guarded over by servants of philosophical balance known as druids. Allies to beasts and manipulators of nature, these often misunderstood protectors of the wild strive to shield their lands from all who would threaten them and prove the might of the wilds to those who lock themselves behind city walls. Rewarded for their devotion with incredible powers, druids gain unparalleled shape-shifting abilities, the companionship of mighty beasts, and the power to call upon nature's wrath. The mightiest temper powers akin to storms, earthquakes, and volcanoes with primeval wisdom long abandoned and forgotten by civilization.

Gameplay[]

Role: While some druids might keep to the fringe of battle, allowing companions and summoned creatures to fight while they confound foes with the powers of nature, others transform into deadly beasts and savagely wade into combat. Druids worship personifications of elemental forces, natural powers, or nature itself. Typically this means devotion to a nature deity, though druids are just as likely to revere vague spirits, animalistic demigods, or even specific awe-inspiring natural wonders.

Base Features[]

WeaponOfAwe.png

Druid Proficiencies

Druids are proficient with the following weapons: club, dagger, dart, quarterstaff, scimitar, scythe, sickle, shortspear, sling and spear. They are also proficient with all natural attacks (claw, bite and so forth) of any form they assume with wild shape.

Druids are proficient with light and medium armor (but not metal armors), thus they may only wear padded, leather or hide armor. Druids are proficient with shields (except tower shields) but may only use wooden ones.




Spellcasting

A druid casts divine spells drawn from the druid spell list. A druid must choose and prepare her spells ahead of time.

A druid uses her Wisdom score as her spellcasting modifier.

A druid knows all spells, of a spell level that she can cast, on her spell list.

Nature Sense

A druid gains a +2 bonus on Lore (Nature) checks.

Nature Bond

At 1st level, a druid forms a bond with nature. This bond can take one of two forms. The first is a close tie to the natural world, granting the druid one of the following cleric domains: Air, Animal, Earth, Fire, Plant, Water, or Weather. When determining the powers and bonus spells granted by this domain, the druid's effective cleric level is equal to her druid level. A druid that selects this option also receives additional domain spell slots, just like a cleric. She must prepare the spell from her domain in this slot and this spell cannot be used to cast a spell spontaneously.

The second option is to form a close bond with an animal companion. Unlike normal animals of its kind, an animal companion's Hit Dice, abilities, skills, and feats advance as the druid advances in level. If a character receives an animal companion from more than one source, her effective druid levels stack for the purposes of determining the statistics and abilities of the companion. Most animal companions increase in size when their druid reaches 4th or 7th level, depending on the companion.




Orisons

Druids can cast a number of orisons, or 0-level spells. These spells are cast like any other spell, but they are not expended when cast and may be used again.

Bug icon.png This feature does not appear in the Class Progression table in the game, or on a druid's list of Special Abilities.




TrueSeeing.png

Detect Magic

Detects magical auras of active spells or artifacts (or of those that were active recently). Can identify the school of magic to which the spell belongs. Used in dialogues.




CustomIcon01.png

Alignment Restriction

A druid who changes to a prohibited alignment loses all spells and druid abilities (including her animal companion, but not including weapon, armor, and shield proficiencies). She cannot thereafter gain levels as a druid until she returns to a permitted alignment.




AcidDart.png

Spontaneous Summoning

A druid can channel stored spell energy into summoning spells that she hasn't prepared ahead of time. She can "lose" a prepared spell in order to cast any summon nature's ally spell of the same level or lower.




WildShape.png

Wild Shape

At 4th level, a druid gains the ability to turn herself into a wolf and back again once per day. The effect lasts for 1 hour per druid level, or until she changes back.

Changing form is a standard action and doesn't provoke an attack of opportunity. A druid can use this ability an additional time per day at 6th level and every two levels thereafter, for a total of eight times at 18th level.

At 6th level, a druid can use wild shape to change into a leopard or a small elemental. At 8th level, a druid can use wild shape to change into a bear or a medium elemental. At 10th level, a druid can use wild shape to change into a smilodon, a shambling mound, or a large elemental. At 12th level, a druid can use wild shape to change into a huge elemental.

For the feyspeaker archetype, all level prerequisites are increased by 2.




Barkskin.png

Resist Nature's Lure

Starting at 4th level, a druid gains a +4 bonus on saving throws against the spell-like and supernatural abilities of fey and plants.




AcidDart.png

Venom Immunity

At 9th level, a druid gains immunity to all poisons.



Wild Shape Options[]

The wild shape options available to a druid depend on a druid's class level.
