No tracking for Druid?

    Did I miss it in the class reveal?

     

    Sounds like druids do not get the ability to track; and at this time, tracking is a ranger only skill~

     

    Opinions?

    Seems fine to me. Tracking should be a specialty of Ranger, feels wrong taking that part of their identity away.

    I do not mind it. Either way.

    Also, not all skills/abilities are listed in the current reveals.

    The most overlooked fact about this game.

    The reval also doesn't list Foraging, and IMO it would be strange for Druids to not be able to forage. (Their most Iconic "weapon" is a sicle, which is primarly used to harvest herbs.)

    Speaking from the perspective of someone who really likes both Druids and Rangers, and plans on playing both classes, I personally feel that tracking and foraging should be reserved for Rangers. Even if it would make sense that Druids might be able to do these things, they are iconic Ranger abilities, and I feel that they would lose something if Druids could use them as well. Plus, Druids get so many other cool abilities already, I don't feel they necessarily need any more. Just my opinion, but I know I'm looking forward to both classes no matter what.

    Tracking is not really that important for druids and makes the ranger a little more iconic. Forage might be avalable to all classes for a variety of reasons, like feeding yourself.

    Maybe animal only tracking for Druids, all other tracking, including animal tracking, for Ranger???

    If druids can't track it wouldnt stop me from playing one. Imho Rangers should be the only class to be able to track because its part of the class idendity.

    To respond to the OP, I think the second most overlooked factor in this case (behind "it's a different game") is that the class reveals do not provide a completely comprehensive representation of the skills of a given class.  This has been stated many times by the devs, most specifically Joppa. 

    Druids could very well have track.  There's still much we don't know about the classes (and much that will likely change) even amongst those which have been revealed.

    Also, it's a different game.

    I am still hopeful that Druids will have the ability to track and forage.  Even a more limited tracking, as was the case in Everquest, would be fine by me.

    As a former Druid in EQ, I really do not mind this. Granted, Druids are one with nature, so technically their tracking abilities should rely more on what animals tell them than tracking like an actual Ranger. I believe Rangers should be the only master tracking class. Maybe at later levels, allow Druids to shapechange into an animal like a Wolf, Panther, or Eagle and gain limited tracking ability. It's just a thought.

    Druids being perfectly in tune with nature, it would only make sense that they have extremely acute situational awareness of the forest around them. I think they should at least be able to track animals, beasts, etc., if not also anything else sentient.

    Druids have become a group-capable main healer class in Pantheon. 

    The focus of their relationship with nature has been re-directed apparrently. 

    However, you now have a main healer class that can port and provide a run speed buff- 2 forms of travel enhancement!

    Druids should have track to an extent. I mean ... Druid... C'mon. They know everything their is when it comes to nature.
