    Hello Terrarians!

    As many of you know, the upcoming cross over with Dungeon Defenders II will bring enemies, weapons, vanity, tower defense and more to Terraria! On the side of the cross over, Dungeon Defenders II players get an awesome new hero! Our beloved Dryad will continue her lifelong battle against the corruption in Etheria! Check out her defenses and abilities below and for a complete list of the content coming to Dungeon Defenders II, check out this announcement post on dungeondefenders.com. It has been a great experience to collaborate with the amazing Trendy team, and with less than a week before launch, we are super stoked to see the Dryad in action!

    Dryad is the most overpowered NPC in Terraria. (She's capable of wide area of effect attacks targeting unlimited enemies and buffing allies. Plus she is one of the more useful NPCs, selling some important items.)

    Is she just as overpowered in DD II? Cause she looks like it! She can fly and transform now! :)

    (Note: Haven't played the game; that's just the feeling I got from the trailer.)

    This looks cool! Makes me want to add a corrupted dryad boss in my mod sometime in the future.
    But of course, the update might add that already or something. We'll see.

    So many Terraria things... it's beautiful. ;(

    Her animation in places seems a little off, though... only the top half of her body moves when she attacks with the sword when standing still.

    That was an animation choice that we made when we chose to remove root motion from combat. It was so she can continue casting/attacking while moving in any direction.

    The Dryad just became even more of a badass now that we know she does Saitama's workout routine.

    Hey, that's pretty good.

    Never played DD before, but I might have to.

    Good development team to work with, based on what I've seen.

    Oh man, this looks awesome! (And is the most info we've ever gotten on an NPC xD).

    I started playing DDII upon the announcement, so I'm saving up medals to hopefully get her. I do wonder about the whole Corrupted form, though, and what the limits on that will be--like, there has to be something keeping a player from staying in that form ALL the time, because it sounds like basically one-winged angel mode. Maybe there's a meter, or it has something to do with ability points/whatever the blue meter is called? (I mean, I can find several reasons it'd be impractical in-universe, but I'm wondering how the mechanic will be implemented.)

    Also I love all the nods to Terraria in her attacks--from the blessing to the Purification Powder/Vile Mushrooms and the Angry Nimbus! And wow, the Harpies are actually people! Blame my lack of vision but I always thought they were just super angry birds. So the Dryad's friends with those hellions, huh? She's gotta tell 'em to get offa my cloud >.<

    Anyway, super excited for this, it looks like the TE team did a great job including the spirit of the game in there, and I'm looking forward to hearing what Terraria's going to take from this!

    (And this is just me but I see prime fanfiction material here.)

    sugestion: make it so if the world become over X% corrupted the evil dryad will atack. (the idea is , the world become almost ful corrpted, his guardian will become corrupted too)
    but u will have to make a crimson dryad too . good luck!
