Dryads are aggressive tree spirits which seek to tear apart any who desecrate the woods they live in. Although almost harmless physically, they can awaken the trees of the forest to batter you, and the vines they generate will drag you into the woods if you try to escape. They do not generate naturally; if you find one it is most likely a shapeshifter—however, you can summon one with Summon Forest.
Tips & Tricks
- Much like the walls of the Slime Pits, trees affected by Awaken Forest can deal a surprising amount of damage if you don't try to avoid them. As there's no way to resist this damage, your best bet is to fight a dryad in the middle of a large clearing. If no such clearing is readily available, feel free to make one.
- A dryad's vines will all die the moment you kill the dryad itself. Since she also summons them very rapidly, it's better to focus on killing the dryad than on clearing the vines. Don't simply Tab your way through combat, as you'll often wind up ignoring the dryad to kill the vines instead.
- You can summon your own dryad, complete with a hefty chunk of woodland terrain, through use of the Summon Forest spell.
