Zenonia 4 Druide Guide | Stat/Skill Builds

The Druide

The Druide is arguably the most versatile class in Zenonia 4, as well as being the hardest to play. There are many ways to build your character – it’s not as cut and dry as the melee classes. You can attack using your regular attack (which is varied in and of itself; you can charge it for extra damage), use a large array of spells with your ample SP, and/or morph into a spirit bear and build your character entirely based on that. If you can get past the steep learning curve, and the fact that you have to pay a lot more than other classes for potions, the Druide (why did Gamevil spell it that way, anyway…) can be a lot of fun.


Note: If you just surround your skill build with Fire Step and another attack, like Lightning Chain, just pump points into passives and use Fire Step on everything for the easiest way to play the entire game. You can kill many, many bosses almost instantly by just running into them with Fire Step, it's crazy strong. Easiest way to level up in Zenonia 4 I believe.

Stat Build

Pure INT – The most powerful stat build for the Druide. Pump all your points into INT. It gives the most attack (the INT stat for Druides gives more attack than the other 3 stats, as well as more Critical Rating than STR and CON). The problem with this build is that when you get hit, if you don’t have lots of good HP/Defense gear, you’ll go down ridiculously quickly.

Hybrid – A more practical stat build. Add 2 INT and 1 CON per level. If you think you don’t need that much HP, you can add 2 CON per 3 levels, and use the rest of your points for INT. The rationale for adding CON as your secondary stat is that it adds more HP and Defense than STR for the Druide, which are the stats that you need. STR adds slightly more ATT, but you already get enough from your INT stat.

Spirit Bear – The Spirit Bear build actually provides a pretty cool twist for your Druide. Basically, you cast a spell to become a Spirit Bear, giving up the power to cast spells (besides for Spirit Crash) for an increase in STR, Defense, and HP. You can cast buffs though, like Fire Step, which is very fun (you basically just turn into a bear and run circles around your enemies). Add all your points into CON, and you'll be pretty much impossible to take down.

Skill Build

This skill build will be up to level 50 for the Hybrid build. If you’re Pure INT, just don’t invest into the Tenacity passive skill (Level 35).

If you do Int and Con, center your build around Fire Step and a bunch of passives because that skill, at level 1, is all you need for a while. It's really strong, and you kill bosses really quickly.

Ivl 47 – Tenacity (5)
Ivl 48 – Tenacity (6)
Ivl 49 – Tenacity (7)
Ivl 50 – Tenacity (8)

After level 50, you can assuredly decide on how to finish off your character’s stats. Concentrate on maxing out all the passive skills, besides Survival Instinct. The active skills to max out are Serpent Totem and Firewall. Also invest into Tree of Restoration if you feel like it fits your play-style. I don’t really like the buffs, because they don’t last nearly long enough for the output they give. Fire Step is decent, so try that out if you want. Also invest in Hurricane Shot - it's very good for bosses.

If you're using the Spirit Bear build, just max out all the passives, as well as Fire Step. Of course, max out Spirit Bear, and also the charge attack.

Tips

  • Just. Use. Fire. Step. for OP's sake.
  • You have to be a bit more “tactical” in playing this class than the other ones. Using just your normal attack and skills whenever you see an enemy won’t cut it. An example of a “combo” is rounding up a couple enemies, diverting their attention with a Serpent Totem, and then throwing down a Firewall for some huge damage. Then, while they’re still bunched up, use skills like Lightning Chain, Hurricane Shot, or your max charge attack to finish them off.
  • A pretty universal tip is to leave Zenonia 4 running for 20 hours (just lock your iPod/iPhone without shutting off the game). You’ll unlock the Zenoniac title, which gives a 10% increase to each of your stats. This especially is helpful for the Druide, because in the beginning of the game, defense and HP is incredibly sparse.

Hey, really nice guide. just wanted to let u know that slayers do really well with full con build. I'm now at lvl 30 and i am practically unkillable, and a killing machine at the same time. Only problem being lack of sp. I added the skill which deals damage in an area around u, not the spin one. And it deals an insane amount of dmg with a huge cost of sp. of cos add the atk per sp thing. And i mainly add passive skills before maxing that aoe dmg skill. Early lvls would be tough but it is really nice to know that your efforts paid off after :D

thanks for the info, lancejin! I'll experiment around with that build and add it to my slayer guide when I get around to writing it.


Jeff 4 years ago

Hey so I have played all the zenonia's up until the third one, about to start the fourth...

I LOVED morpice during the second zenonia, (Accidentally went 2 con, 1 int build for like 20 levels before switching to pure int.) For Zenonia 3, I decided to stray away from the nature shaman since he didn't appeal to me with all this totem crap, and I chose the shadow hunter. I went a pure DEX build and seriously regret doing so. I die too often, and my sp/hp doesn't last long enough for me to continue through multiple screens without having to stop and rest for 5 min.

So I'm asking about druide's... As morpice i had a nice pushback, not too large, that helped me keep monsters at bay long enough during a 1v1, I also loved the Icicle circle that did a huge amount of damage to people near me, and the thunderclouds were amazing. I am wondering if the druide resembles morpice in a way, that it has pushback to it's normal attack, and spells that can deal large amounts of damage.


iKingCole 4 years ago

I can provide sets for anyone who wants, just send mail to iKingCole with your level, and use one of my characters in the PvE den of trials. Zen is no problem, because Cydia solved that for me. And no, I won't be sending gold or Zen. Let's not jiff Gamevil of too much $$, eh?


Jeff 4 years ago

King Cole, Would you happen to know the answer to my question asked above? Since you seem to be educated about the game.


ttocs profile image

ttocs 4 years ago Author

Jeff - for 1v1, the druide has enough pushback to not get damaged. and yeah, the druide has some nice AOE's, although admittedly, they're not as effective as morpice's (you have to have a lot of the enemies in front of you for attacks like firewall and hurricane shot)


Fresh 4 years ago

Pretty nice skillguide... Im lvl 31 now but don't know where to get lvl up.. The mobs in the dungeon with the holy gem are pretty hard to kill and deal massiv damage! Tips pls :(


Jeff 4 years ago

Is hurricane shot the same as the tornado in zenonia 2... and thanks for the response. Also, what ive been hearing about the snake totem, getting people in front of u should be easy.


x10098 4 years ago

entangling roots is a rly cheap, high attack skill. 3 of them and most bosses are gone :3 lv40 up to now


ttocs profile image

ttocs 4 years ago Author

Fresh - well just train on monsters your level, or if they're too hard, go to previous areas. That's all you can do :\ or go into the den of trials/ abyss for exp.

Jeff - It's similar, and yeah its pretty easy to get mobs in front of you in a bunch

Lee 4 years ago

the best build for slayer and druide is full con and add ton of crit rating, hit rating, and evasion from gears then you'll no problem against the boss but you'll die a couple time not many


Lee 4 years ago

all the classes are actually pretty challenging, sans like a con slayer.


iDave 4 years ago

Just a quick pointer with regards to the guide... You can just set your clock forward 20 hours to get that title, to save you waiting


dongybear 4 years ago

i'd really like to play bear-druid but the thing is the cooldown Bear Spirit is sooo long and its duration is too short for bosses.. any advices?


Haha 4 years ago

Do I have to max tenacity even if im a pure int?


ttocs profile image

ttocs 4 years ago Author

iDave - Thanks for the info!! Didn't know that.

Dongybear - Just keep leveling up the skill. It's not an easy build to play because of the cooldown... try concentrating on gear that lowers skill cooldown.

Haha - nope, check out the paragraph right above the skill build. If you're pure int, skip Tenacity


Tilk 4 years ago

Thanks for the info on the Druide! I Like this class the best personally, due to the fact that it uses a bunch of spells. The skill Build is a great guide, And it helped me a ton!!

What the best? Pure INT or the Hybrid build?


skillery 4 years ago

can you please update your build like your blader build with 2 paths one for spritbear + firestep build please or just tell me in comments


Lw 4 years ago

tradurre se volete:

la miglior build è hybrid con 1point into sacrifice..max out nature's fury,tornado or firewall(i prefer tornado)e firestep

all' inizio del pvp usate tornado seguito da firestep e impattate contro il nemico:D it's so easy!con l'ibrido avete abbastanza vita e difesa da reggere diversi colpi..ricordate la fata..!!find icestone or holystone 3slot..druid n ranger SRAVE:):)

NesTea 4 years ago

Hello! I'm kinda new to this game, kinda not xD I now have a level 35 Druid and I'm not sure what to go with for an active skill.

1. Upgrade some other actives (all my actives are at 1 and they are the actives on the tutorial up until lvl 35)

2. Get hurricane shot

3. Tree of restoration

I tried them both out through the use skill point and quit game from tab menu, and they are both very nice... The thing I was wondering is how effective they will be in the future? Is Tree of restoration actually worth getting... I'm definitely going to get hurricane shot at one point or another, but I can't decide on getting it now or later!

Thanks in advance!

Cheers,

NesTea

I destroy in pvp and boss fights with the spirit bear build. I spent my first 5 levels adding skill points into the passive INT increase and my stat points into CON. At level 5 I got spirit bear and then the root attack. At level 15 I got fire step and then just walk around my enemies with bear + fire step. Been leveling up passives once I got my 3 active skills past lvl 3.


NesTea 4 years ago

Yes, I do that too! Except without the bear! Haha

I Got fire step at lvl16 and I owned ever since, I won so many pvp matches that I would only get ten levels higher people when I'd fight online! And I still won! All because of fire step! I won so many times that I got items like victorious staffs and unique equipment often and now I breeze through all the bosses one by one, and all using fire step, I used it on all my bosses eve since I got it and they were gone in literally five seconds!

I now have an attack of 1500 with a defense of around 500! And I had the exact same attack and almost same defense ever since I was lvl 25 because I got so many good items from pvp that I never had to buy anything!

I have 25k extra gold with nothing to do with because I never bought!

Fire step is truly a "Beastly Broken Skill" ^_^

@NesTea

sei italiano?


gnuen 4 years ago

I tried your build its fun and all but why take chain lightning when you don't need the skill under it is that not waist of skill points? the spirit bear is a cool twist its just a slow proces compared to full int or hybrid I was thinking of makings root firewall serpent build with hybrid stats


Kavi 4 years ago

Hiya, I'm a lv52 druide and I can't for the life of me even begin to touch the Dark General Leviathan, let alone kill him. Any pointers?


gnuen 4 years ago

What skills do you use. I usually use hit and run tacs if I feel the opponents.is to strong


Player 4 years ago

heya , i'm ranger lvl77 .. it's quite good , with the range and crit damage .. whenever ranger def depends on item .. no doubt with att . my stats now att 3000 and def 900 , is that enough ?

my suggest is do all subquest , collect gold then go to Den Trial , you'll gain more exp there , just find a good partner.. then if you want to search good item , you can find on pvp .. cc : Kazegayo ( on Zenonia 4 )


PainOfShadow 4 years ago

Hi guys im currently lvl 70.. and the game keeps telling me that i can no longer lvl up. why is that? can anyone tell me a solution.. please and thankyou

Lvl 70 is highest level in normal mode you need to advance to a new difficulty.

energy07 4 years ago

Sorry, im not italian


Joe 4 years ago

I gotta re-iterate the previous comment that stated Fire Step is where it's at. I went with a mostly 1con 2int build and pushed my Fire-Step through the roof. With both attack boosts popped, I was critting for 12k @ lvl 40 (This was before re-vamping my stats and pumping Fire-Step to 10/10, now I see 16-20k easy at 50) Maybe some of you are looking at this dmg and thinking "20k isn't jack shit against my defense." The damage is per second and every second another fire drops. So when you stand on a player, you hit 40k in 2 seconds, 60k in 3, etc. etc.

The tricks are to kite the melee so they run through your fire, be fast!

Stand on range to let the fire stack and really destroy them.

Get a gem that stuns so you can stand on anyone safely and melt them.

I win more often then lose, and very quickly. I have about 1500 power, and 550 def and beat opponents with 3x my attack and up to 5x my def!

Tree for PvE is win.

Tornado a must grab as it ccs for easy Fire Step set-up.


Joe 4 years ago

Just to make sure I'm clear, that's not 60k dmg in 3 secs, that's 160k dmg in 3secs, which is insane.


NesTea 4 years ago

Yes... my fire step is currently at... 1 lol

another good trick is to (after battle ends, before it stops your movement) run over to where the enemy starts the fight and just stand there with your remaining firestep..it will burn them before the game starts and they get pretty much KOd after two seconds... cool cuz i do that and hardly ever have to fight, just stand there and watch as they burn from my previous games fire lulz


NesTea 4 years ago

also, standing in one spot with remamining fire gives better damage, it all gets contained into one blow which ALWAYS knocks back and usually always gives a 1 hot KO

(when they start on the fire or running into doesn't matter) as long as they hit it..


LS 4 years ago

Shut up! not tell the secret! hahaha

;)

you forgot to launch hurricane and totems to give you time to use buff / nature's fury


Zzz 4 years ago

Haha, if the pvp was live then its pretty easy to avoid the firestep


NesTea 4 years ago

Not really zzz, because most people i play are ten lvls above me so they think they can just run in and tank, so they go straight into my firestep...


ddev_97 4 years ago

got zenonia 4 offline with max zen so i can upgrade all easily


Seisetsu 4 years ago

Here's a question. If you're a pure INT what skill do you invest in t level 35 instead of tenacity. And tO be able to invest in it so it can actually be helpful to you instead of being a hindrance to you?

I just owned proneus in under five seconds with firestep level 1! Hahahah!

All the bosses are easy for me xD not trying to be cocky, but firestep is over 9000 lulz!

I can tank anybody haha!


Rucious 4 years ago

Does anyone know how much hit i should have in order not to miss my attacks?


how 4 years ago

How in the world do some of these people that I get paired up with in the den have attks of 25000 and 9000 def ? I've seen a slayer at 32000 attk and a slayer at 25000..... how!!?!


Rucious 4 years ago

Probably they buy Zen and put that zens in attack etc


blaze 4 years ago

They cheat and get 999'999 Zen then put it into there stats no1 is paying mny on this game would be a waste when a lot of people are just cheating... I seen a lv 11 ranger with 22000 atc and 15k defense ... there scrubs


jswag42 4 years ago

@Rucious

you always will miss atks because of the monsters evade stat, so theres really not much you can do about it. i have a blader and it misses 1/3 of the time, but whenever i hit, i land a critical more than 70% of the time...


Jacky 4 years ago

So, are Druides the best PVP class?


Anonymous 4 years ago

So for a bear Druid build, do I max out con or split between con and str 2 str and 1 con?


SpiritBEAR 4 years ago

for the bear druid build you would split stats between con and int since int is more powerful than strength for a druid


ixhinchan 4 years ago

Well the buying damage will not raise your damge to 20000+ damage nor defense because it has a limit :3


jswag42 4 years ago

@blaze

that is not possible because just as @ixhinchan said, theres a limit to how much u can increase ur atk/def/hit, however, they probably hacked to get unlimited points


Jae 4 years ago

So for the "Spirt Bear" build you just put everything on con??


Laynz 4 years ago

How do I send mail??


Lolz 4 years ago

Wow NesTea do you realize that these people you're fighting on pvp are computer controlled? If it was ACTUAL people you realize that you would get owned? Do you also realize that there are hacked players that are in pvp that would own you sooo badly? Your firestep is not that impressive. Seriously.


jswag42 4 years ago

@Lolz

lol u don't need to be so serious, like u said, firestep isn't effective against actual players, but you should've done what ur username said : Lol at him and move on XD


jswag42 4 years ago

@Jacky

in one way, yes, its the best pvp class, with the firestep; but what if you take out the firestep from druid? it would make the class harder to play than it already is... so it really depends on HOW you utilize your class' strengths and weaknesses, and not what class you are using
