View Full Forums : The "Role" of the Druid

10-23-2004, 09:49 PM
Blizzard has posted the design intended roles for each class on their forums. Their intended role for the Druid class shouldn't surprise too many of you:

The Druid has three potential roles in a group. When in their normal, biped form, they act well as a healer and can give support in the form of buffs and debuffs; they also have limited crowd control against dragons. Their Bear form gives them offensive and defensive power enough to step up to a monster and take the hits (we’re looking into aggro management for the form). In Cat form, the Druid becomes a damage dealer. This trio of roles in one class gives the Druid a diverse feel and allows them to perform nearly any role perceived as “needed” in a party.
