Best of: Druid bomb traps

Recommended Posts

I don't think I've ever heard any tester say anything but good things about this mechanic. It's one of the best ones in the game for the cool factor alone. Assuming I can recruit Mr. Druid himself Anthrage to help me edit the videos I'd like to put together a montage of things that go boom.

It would cut across guild lines, so send me your Sugoi bomb traps, your Winterblade traps, Caldera, LoD and all the rest. After all, we want the same thing at the end of the day: to see some poorly made socks get blown up. If you don't have any good bomb trap vids, hop on a Druid and go PvP. They aren't that hard to pull off.

cough mr druid cough ;p

while blight is worth using for the electric/earth debuff alone...

generally corrupting orbs is a waste of time, potenital healing and both essence generation and spending

unless you are in the unfortunate sitution of trying to solo with your druid and aging your enemy to death (and their keyboard broke or they are entirely new to the game and or incompetent...)

only usuable if you bait someone into a shroud stun and then trigger it and they dont have retaliate (now 30 sec cooldown!) or their C up...and they are all out of dodges...

firstly....vintage @Gorwaldfrom the first druid patch...

So yea not something I intentionally really try to do, especially in a group setting in current open world gameplay with high mobility and lack of POIs and choke points...

Point taken Tinnis! You're definitely one of the more prolific Druid players here. Your excellent Ranger work overshadows it sometimes, but I remember.

Anthrage was the OG Druid back in SB and I was just giving a tip of the hat.

TY for all the awesome links man.

I think my record was insta-gibbing around 6 players in a single explosion in the night druid was first launched (orbs were doing bugged damage back then lol). I wish I had recorded that. I think ItsZiz had it recorded somewhere, but I don't have access to youtube right now, will look for it later.

I miss the fun action of hunger dome :( Can't wait till serious pvp comes back into the game with campaigns.  I can see druids laying down orbs near a wall that is about to get blown up in order to blight them when enemies walk through!

Courtesy of Tinnis and Soulreaver and props to CAL for even keeping and sharing the "bad vid" to one day soon make the ultimate in bomb-trap compilations:

I had 3 really solid ones this weekend, but this was the only one that was recorded I think :/

I was quite shocked when doing my damage test video - yellow orbs can non crit for 10.7k versus helcats...green orbs 2-3k non crits.

so looking at a 3 orb stack doing ~14k non crit...

[and a bear can do 21k each damage to three targets]

but unless combined with say a ally knockdown, or bait a shroud stun (which isn't always enough time when they retaliate) generally both are highly impractical

#1 change to help both druid orb healing and damage: full health group members do not consume orbs....(and fix physics lol)

possibly make new orbs created in an exsisting blight field also explode (rather than just on blight circle creation)

Agree with all of that.

Shroud is so finicky. When SR was eating me up with daggers and I was charging the Bear I kept thinking ... ok proc Shroud ... any time now would be good ... where's that proc Shroud? Sometimes it stuns every 3d attack. Sometimes, like there, it just abandons you. o.O

can only proc once ever 6 seconds

(on any target so literally only one stun every 6 seconds even if being ganged)

after january utility nerf, same patch as barkskin decimation.

i dont think you had it up in that clip tho? :P


orb entry! A confessor was bugged under the temple and taking advantage of that to attack me....well i had a way to flush him out!

I think I popped it literally right before he started whacking on me (that's the singular reason I'd ever stand next to a Ranger, setting up a Bear after the stun), but I could be misremembering. Do you recall the time stamp on the dagger slicing and dicing?
