In terms of play, Druids are a fairly balanced character, capable of handling themselves as spellcasters, with relative proficiency in fire and cold skills, and in melee combat (especially with Shapeshifting skills, not to mention bonuses gained from Spirits). They seem to have an affinity for Two-Handed Axes/Maces; a Maul and a Giant Axe, being of Slow Attack Speed for a Barbarian, is Fast Attack Speed for the Druid. The other weapons in these groups are adjusted accordingly to respect this affinity.
