Hey, if you want to take a snarky jab literally, how about... There's way more to do as a druid than just charm animals. If that's all you do, I'd say you're missing out on a lot of the class's utility, on top of the huge breadth of everquest gameplay you're not partaking in.

... or maybe you could just refrain from assuming that everyone who doesn't play the way you do is a bad player?

You could sneak pull on races that had the skill innately. That is no longer the case so the advice doesn't really apply.
You can still sneak pull, Moran.

Don't most druids solo level outdoors at lower levels and can just use OP unresistable lvl 5 Harmony? Or I assume if a druid was in a group indoors they usually wouldn't be pulling.

I'm interested to hear how often Halfling Druid's use sneak vs. Tunare druid's with root neck/eventually DS gloves. I think if I was going to start a Druid today I'd go for Tunare, even though Grasping Roots doesn't take that much mana having unlimited clicky root without taking up a spell gem seems extremely useful.

Keep in mind you're talking about a 4 second cast time when using the necklace (vs. half that if you cast the spell normally), for at best a 36 second root. Compare that to higher level roots you can cast: even just the level 24 root lasts almost 3x as long (1.6 minutes), and the higher level ones can cast faster or last even longer.

I've never actually had the Tunare symbol, so I can't speak from experience, and of course there will be times when all you need is a short duration root and you don't mind spending a couple extra seconds for it. All I'm saying is, it's still a level five spell that takes twice as long as normal to cast, so when you get higher in level you may find that it doesn't actually save you a spell slot because you want/need a better root.

I find the Tunare necklace underwhelming for all the reasons Loramin mentioned.

Basically over time I have come to appreciate halfling mojo. Sneak and hide add to that mojo.

I really like the clicky root. With that, the snare gloves and dot arms, a druid can kill (albeit slowly) anything that doesn't summon. It's very nice not having to abandon a kill because you ran out of mana from resists or fizzles.

Not trying to be snarky, but you should really try the necklace before you judge its usefulness. I use it all the time on my druid and can't think of a single time I lamented not having sneak on that same druid.

High level roots cost a lot in terms of mana. Mobs can break those roots too.

I'm not re-rolling my level 45 druid for a level 5 root clickie [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

But look I never said it wasn't useful; in fact I said quite the opposite:

My point was just that having the symbol doesn't mean you can forever free up your root spell slot, because there are legit reasons why you'd still want to cast other roots even if you have it.

I see a lot of people talk about reroll like you have to delete a character to do it.
Accounts are infinite and free of charge, just make more characters...

I hate changing accounts back and forth, and try to focus on one account. I have deleted many a toon that was partially developed which I just no longer enjoyed playing.

I like starting new toons, and have even started my third druid now to lvl up. It's my favorite class to level as I am motivated to do a third one, this time being a halfling. That or it's a sickness...

Gatmanno has inspired me, I have to be honest! I love how he looks. No robe, no matter, halfling druids look really cool.

I deleted a 29 wizard to make room for my newest alt addition. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]
