I haven't unlocked Druid, but I've been looking into it because it sounded like a lot of fun, but noticed that you need a wooden weapon (can someone confirm?) to use the abilities according to the wiki. What's the reasoning behind limiting Druid in its pairing with other skills? Is there any sort of plan to add wooden weapons for swords, knives, etc., so that Druid is able to be paired with other weapon skills?

Many other classes use wooden weapons
-fire magic
-ice magic
-hammer (have to use a wooden club instead of a hammer)
-cow and deer (if you wear wooden shoes)
-spider (if you use a special crafted harness)
-necromancer (no special requirement except a necromancy gem)
-battle chemistry (if you use an off hand battle chem weapon, a flask)
-archery (main hand staff and off hand bow)
-animal handling
And of course skills that don t require a specific piece of gear like mentalism or psychology. (I might have forgotten few options).

So you can pair druid with any of those.

Druid is not the only skillset that has limitations. Magic can be used only with a combat staff (not a melee one), unarmed can only be fully used with bare hands or claw and cestus, necromancy only with a piece of gear enabling it, animal forms are very limited when it comes to secondary skillsets (especially lycan) etc.

I honestly doubt we ll have wooden swords, that would be a toy sword without much damage. :lol:

Quirky limitations and differences amongst all the classes/skills is just something to expect and one of the most endearing parts of the game.

I'm rocking out with Druid / Battle Chem right now and thoroughly enjoying the combo. What I love most is the run buffs. Really helps with farming.
