WFTO Wednesday #44: The Dryad

The Dryad

Hey folks,

This week we’ve got a tree, an apple, and some pumpkins. We think the natural course of action would be for you to continue reading in the direction an apple often follows as it falls.

 

Unit Spotlight: The Dryad

On windless days and with some luck one may hear the telling sign of a nearby Dryad as the creatures and plants of the forest reach out to her protecting presence. When branches rustle softly without the mercurial touch of the wind they walk, where a beast, stricken by arrow has its wound cooled and mended by her soft embrace.

DryadFinal

Though she is a nurturer by nature, the Dryad will use her fearsome wrath to protect the natural order so often disrupted by both unholy Necromancer and predatory Vampire. When she enters battle she will prevent foes from fleeing while healing her nearby allies with Wisps of life.

Abilities:

  • Circle of Life (Passive): When the Dryad is defeated she releases an intense wave of healing energy, restoring a large amount of health to all nearby allies.
  • Nature’s Touch (Active): The Dryad summons a healing wisp to restore some health to a friendly unit.
  • Entangle (Active): The Dryad entangles an enemy unit in vines, stunning it for several seconds.
  • Roots (Active, Special): The Dryad summons roots around an enemy unit, immobilizing it and any other nearby enemy units.

 

Bedrock Beta 0.2.5 “Under-Apples”

We’ve completed the trifecta of operating systems supported by WFTO and are happy to announce that Mac users will soon be able to install and play the game!

In addition to Mac support, we’re adding a ton of small quality of life features and bug fixes. Click here for the full patch notes!

We expect the patch to be live within 24 hours.
