Detect Ants... This would allow you to find out where those ants are coming from.

Destroy Ants... Like the summoned line of spells, this would detonate the targetted Ant Hive.

Invisibility to Ants... You can cast this on areas of your house to make them invisibile to ants. So, for instance, the cat food bowls wouldn't be noticed by said ants.

Wood Like Wood... This would prevent your wooden fence, decking, etc from rotting.

Beguile Crabgrass... allows you charm crabgrass and attack a noisy neighbors yard instead of yours.


Reasons I Know I'm a druid....

Tangling Weeds (Ample evidence in my backyard)
Legacy of Bracken (I knew I should've weeded early this spring)
Regrowth (What happens after I remove Tangling Weeds)
Bladecoat (oops... how did those boysenberry bushes take hold there?)

I want self gate to bind. And bind = my house.

So I can get home from work without dealing with Rush Hour. =P

06-14-2003, 05:01 PM
But then your car is left at work!

06-14-2003, 06:39 PM
Innate Camo.

I would be soooo rich.

06-14-2003, 06:43 PM
Animal charm...

then i could keep my cats off the counters and out of the windows

06-14-2003, 06:54 PM
ooo, that's easy

Cure Disease
boo-boo on the knee = 1 disease counter
Ebola = 20 disease counters

Oh, and someplace to put my Nobel Peace prizes =)

06-14-2003, 07:04 PM
Harmony will do for me.

Although charming the cats off the counters does have appeal.

And if I rooted the bill collectors, could I DoT them and get them to drop all the interest I've already paid?

06-14-2003, 07:59 PM
Ok, here's one.... Root the car the just cut you off... might want to change lanes first though.

06-14-2003, 08:06 PM
Snare, innate camo and charm plant.


Oh, and ports.

06-14-2003, 08:43 PM
Ya, ports would be good.

But if you had innate camo, why would you really need them?

You could take your time.

Stop and smell those charmed rosebushes.

06-14-2003, 08:51 PM
Innate camo leads to traffic accidents.

I was thinking ports (ooh and soe) for travel, innate camo for eavesdropping/peeping (so I'm a pervert, sue me) and charm plant to terrorize the countryside.

06-14-2003, 08:59 PM
Innate camo has merit, Ports of course, wouldnt hurt to have a few DD's, but my all time favorite would have to be Wolf form!

I want a pet bear that is so weak even a baby could play with it and not get hurt.

Levitate would be cool! But everyone at work would look at me funny carrying around the smelly bat wings.... And the girl in accounting... she might call the animal protective services... That !@#@! hippie!

Walking through the local mall...

Annoying_poll_taker_01 is straight ahead
Annoying_poll_taker_01 is ahead and to the left
Annoying_poll_taker_01 is to the left
Annoying_poll_taker_01 is behind and to the left
Annoying_poll_taker_01 is behind you
Annoying_poll_taker_01 is behind you
Annoying_poll_taker_01 is behind you
Annoying_poll_taker_01 is behind you
Annoying_poll_taker_01 is behind you
You have lost your target


Or better yet, while driving to work...

Speedtrap_01 is straight ahead
The spirit of the wolf leaves you
Speedtrap_01 is to the right
Speedtrap_01 is behind you and to the right
Speedtrap_01 is behind you
Speedtrap_01 is behind you
Speedtrap_01 is behind you
You have lost your target
You feel the spirit of the wolf enter you


06-15-2003, 07:54 AM
Heh! Brienna, good ones. :)

06-15-2003, 09:10 AM
SoE and ports. I hate driving!

06-15-2003, 10:16 AM
Ya... but I ride the train to work =D.

06-15-2003, 10:22 AM
We'd probably find out gating causes greenhouse gases or something...

So you have the "waiting on a boat" skill in real life :)

06-15-2003, 03:42 PM
I want everything!
Summon food ( who needs to buy food)
Summon water (who needs to buy water?)
SOE (haha I am faster than cars)
innate camo ( sneaky!)
Summer's flame ( um..)
Harmony ( er..)
Root ( rootting people is fun!)
Snare ( let's see who run the fastest )
blah, blah

06-15-2003, 04:12 PM
Weather control. *evil grin*

06-15-2003, 04:31 PM
My top 3 would be Wolfform, Treeform and Cure Disease :) I'd probably end up injuring myself with innate camo, but that'd be quite fun too.

while not exactly a druid only ability, I would love a RL /ignore list.

/ignore sister who seems to think that looks are everything.
/ignore idiot on corner spewing the venom du jour

the possibilities are staggering.

Heal, Cure Disease, Harmony, Invis, SoE (more for infravision than for speed). Ahhhh, gate/port/succor.

06-16-2003, 03:23 AM
I think i would want them all also. The travel line would be great as well as innate camo. Could you imagine the fun you could have in a club after everyone had been drinking and you MGB SoE? LOL

06-16-2003, 03:25 AM
See invis.... so I can see all you gits running about with init camo!!!

06-16-2003, 05:20 AM
Innate cammo all the way.

Especially useful at large family gatherings.

06-16-2003, 08:12 AM
I'll take teleport to work and home. No more commute!

06-16-2003, 08:42 AM
It's not a real druid skill but I want an AE female nudity spell. :p I guess Innate Camo would work in a pinch though. ;) Weather control would also be just fine right now since we have only gotten about one day of sunshine here in the last two weeks. What a crappy spring/summer so far. :(

06-16-2003, 08:51 AM
innate camo for the pervert in you,
Resist disease for all for all the safe sex you can get
cure disease incase resist dosnt work
Form of the howler
Mask of the predator
couple DD's here and there
and maybe a few DoT's just for the annoying people you dont like

06-16-2003, 08:55 AM
scratch mask of the predator, not a druid spell, thinkin of one of them other spells

06-16-2003, 09:12 AM
Things I note about my druid...

...he never needs to sleep...

...he needs to eat and drink, but can find that stuff lying on the ground...

...never seems to need to use the restroom..

...never needs to take a shower (or maybe he really, really, really does!)...

...doesn't have any bills or steady income...

...and yet is a world traveler...

...has a bank with safe deposit boxes that transport his posessions wherever he happens to be...

...frequently (so very very frequently) rises from the dead...

...never ages...

...isn't tied down by a house, car, or job...

...has a pet that is only around when he wants it, and which doesn't ever need any care...

...can turn off the rain at will (which is a good thing considering the not having a house or car part)...

...doesn't seem to be expected by anyone to do anything at all ; ).

Same spell name, different effect. I could be a **** star!!

06-16-2003, 09:43 AM
Old hit the nail on the head =P That's what I'd like most if I were a rl Druid...course, I'd have to still have showers..cause otherwise..there's no fun in a hottub ;)

Would love SoE..for all the travelling needs..
Ports..when going to work is just too slow
Innate Camo..for all those perverse needs /whistle
Root..for annoying parents that won't get off muh arse..
Snare.. practical jokes :)

That's about it..maybe a nuke or two for morons :)

-- SoE + extinguish fatigue....look, i'm a marathon runner!

-- Cure disease, perhaps a group one I could MGB in hospitals

-- Innate camo, just generally.

-- Ports, with some going to their original destinations in Norrath. Wouldn't really want to be trying to exp then though, I bet getting hit for 500s hurts 8o

06-16-2003, 03:40 PM
Heh! Wood like wood...

Ok, imagining all those druid spells out there we've had some people identify new careers for themselves.... i.e. **** star with Wood like wood. Someone else would use See invis to apprehend all the criminals running around with innate camo.

Now... what about things like Forage. I mean, can you imagine what foraging would be like in modern day? You'd be going through trash cans for sure! Oh look, a half eaten ham sandwich!

I want some sort of Plant grow spell!!

06-16-2003, 07:35 PM
SoE for fast, flighty fun...

Animal Charms would be neat too (squirrels would make cute pets)

06-17-2003, 09:31 AM
Innate Camo....Hello Police Officer. Run and cast.
Exodus.....Hello Police Officer. Poof I am gone.
SoE....Levi and run fast is great.
DC....Where is that mean neighborhood dog that keeps chasing me?
Gate...Nice to go home whenever
TP...Only if TP ports are located properly
Wake of Karana...Rain Again?

06-17-2003, 10:19 AM
I'd like them all, but Harmony may come close to the top of the list.

I can imagine casting Harmony on my wife to reduce her aggro range so I can play EQ in peace. :)

The one I probably don't need is "Wind of the South"...heck, I already have that when I eat too much Mexican food. Oops, wrong type of wind. :p
