Useful Info

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. Dryads can be found in the Enchanted 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.
  • Dryads are immune to most sources of damage while hiding in a tree, but igniting the tree will deal tremendous damage to it.
  • 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.


Dryads will be added in 0.13.
