Default Questions regarding Druid epic!

Hey lads!

I've been on a bit of a break from P99, and getting that itch to come back for some adventures.

After raiding a bit and experiencing some endgame raiding on my Shaman, and seeing how desperate my Child's Tear situation is with the competition for those damn Golems I was a little disheartened with my chances of ever getting my Shaman Epic. Then I saw them getting MQ'd for hefty prices and It just kind of rubbed me the wrong way.

I've played this damn game for nearly 18 years and I still have never had an epic!

I was considering dusting off my old mate druid Pikn, and having a go at the Druid epic - but the wiki checklist looks a bit long and confusing (but also full of adventure). Is the epic difficult for casual play? I could definitely get a small raid force for the smaller static targets, and am happy to run around foraging up stuff. To my Druid brothers that have completed the epic - what were the major bottlenecks apart from VS?

I guess another question I had on my mind - are golems still socked 24/7?

Cheers guys!

Casual player here, and I finished my epic for my druid no problem! Actually, the VS part wasn't even a bottleneck. Nor was Faydedar. The worst part was the tainted aqua goblin in Lake Rathe. That was an awful camp, and by far the worst part in my experience. It's the only epic I ever completed, but it wasn't hard. Can get lonely sitting there waiting for tainted and corrupted spawns, but in no way was the epic hard. Feel free to contact me in game if you wanna pick my brain, or even if you need help!

Velious trivialized Druid epic, with the hardest parts all being MQd regularly now. Whatever you can’t solo you can easily buy depending on your money situation.

I have a MQ available for the corrupted seahorse in kedge which is the hardest corrupted you will have to kill. So hit me up if you’re interested!

Kedge is a pain, but if you can find a few chaps down to exp, then Kedge is a wonderful adventure! Great exp, and as a druid you can charm in there too. So grab a tank and a healer/dps, and get to swimming!!

I did my druid epic (on Test) basically solo - the only help I asked for was for Faydedar (duoed with a Mage), and I lucked into Phinny's piece (a group had just killed him when I got there and offered it to me).

This was with a tank merc and around level 58ish, so here on p99 you'd probably only need a small group for assistance on two or three fights?

Faydedar will definitely take more than a duo... And i'm not sure what this "Phinny piece" you're talking about is. You only kill seahorses in Kedge for druid epic.. So to clear it up- You'll need assistance for VS/VSR unless you pay to MQ that part. And then Faydedar. Kedge you'll want the assistance of a buddy or 2, but if you are seriously dedicated, you could get away with charming and soloing. But I never found it worth the risk.. Druids don't have the mechanics to be greatest charmers. That place is scary haha.

Thanks for the info guys! bigjeff especially, cheers for the in-depth answer, it was exactly what I was looking for, much appreciated.

It appears as if the bottlenecks I was worried about are not as vast as I imagined, and I have a good group of friends that would be able to help out for sure with the TD dragon and hopefully have the guts to explore Kedge!

Really looking forward to leveling up Pikn again - poor guy has sat at 48 for ages. Gonna get my Efreeti Boots (or did I sell those?) strapped on and get to quadding soon!
