Gains attack speed during the round as long as the Druid is attacking Bloons.
~ In-game description

Druid of Wrath is the third upgrade of Path 3 for the Druid in Bloons TD 6. It increases the Druid's attack speed (5% more for every 10 damage it does during a round, up to 100%, resets after 2 seconds of being idle) based on the amount of damage dealt recently. This attack speed bonus is stacked multiplicatively with attack speed bonuses from Heart of Vengeance; at maximum attack speed, it reaches 3x attack speed compared to the base tower.

This upgrade costs $510 on Easy, $600 on Medium, $650 on Hard, and $720 on Impoppable.

Overview[]

Druid of Wrath

Druid of Wrath receives a wrathful makeover. It keeps its black thick-furred cape and wears a black veil that holds the red octohedral gem on the monkey's forehead. The Druid of Wrath receives full clothing, gaining a black cloak with long red sleeves and red hems, and wearing black socks and boot-style shoes. Losing touch with earth nature, the monkey loses its green shoulder cloth and head branch.

On the upgrade portrait, the Druid of Wrath frowns with moderately open eyes and clenches fingers, as well as flaring some red energy around itself. This is part of the wrath that the Druid of Wrath depicts.

Druid of Wrath gains an additional "wrath" speed buff, gaining extra attack speed as it deals damage during a round, +5% attack speed per 10 damage, up to +100%. The wrath bonus is multiplicative to the Heart of Vengeance's "vengeance" speed buff.

Targeting Priorities[]

Druid of Wrath targets bloons using the standard targeting priorities. Its main thorn attack shoots straight movement projectiles.

  • First: Targets the first bloon visible within its range.
  • Last: Targets the last bloon visible within its range.
  • Close: Targets the closest bloon visible within its range.
  • Strong: Targets the strongest bloon visible within its range.

Strategy[]

Summary[]

Druid of Wrath is an extremely synergetic tower when compared to its rather low cost, making it among the most versatile low-cost towers in the game. Its increasing attack speed mechanic becomes very handy in defense, particularly when combined with support from Berserker Brew (or Stronger Stimulant), Poplust, Jungle Drums Monkey Village, and Obyn Greenfoot or Gwendolin. Once it gains extra pierce, damage, and attack speed from external sources, it can hugely increase its overall popping power. Additionally, certain towers can take advantage of Druid of Wrath's incredible attack speed, such as Total Transformation and Geraldo's Gerry's Fire, to output exceptional DPS.

In addition to these benefits, Druid of Wrath not only benefits from Obyn Greenfoot's pierce bonuses, but additionally gains one exclusive benefit Obyn provides to all Druids of Wrath on screen. Level 18+ Obyn Greenfoot mentions Druids of Wrath pops starting "each round at 200", meaning that Druids of Wrath by default start at 100% higher attack speed immediately when the round starts until after 2 seconds of being idle.

One other important aspect of the Druid of Wrath that should be considered is that the Druid of Wrath attack speed bonuses can stack with Heart of Vengeance. This means intentional lives lost is another very important aspect that helps maximize DPS of Druid of Wrath, and this is even more useful when combined with Poplusts and/or when upgraded to Avatar of Wrath. That way, this allows the Druid to shred bloons a lot faster, and thus can reach maximum Druid of Wrath status a lot faster too.

For best results its recommended to wait for maximizing Heart of Vengeance attack speed boost then upgrade to this upgrade, as it ensures the druid can take advantage of the former upgrade attack speed boost to boost the latter boost (max 4x attack speed compared to non-vengeful druid).

Tips[]

  • 2-0-3 benefits its attack speed bonus much more against grouped bloons due to the lightning's high pierce, but 0-1-3 is better when paired with buffs such as from Obyn Greenfoot or Alch buffs. 0-2-3 is not necessary unless Regrow Bloons are an issue.
  • Druids of Wrath are the best candidates to pair with Total Transformation, as its attack speed per unit damage buff can stack with the transformation, and same goes for Poplust buffs onto them.
  • For Tier 2 Ranked Boss, surrounding a Poplust army with Druids of Wrath is a potent cost-efficient strategy to accompany the Avatar of Wrath, as Poplust buffs do not stack beyond 5, and Druids of Wrath are very cheap to afford while also scaling very well with debuffs.
  • In a similar manner to Total Transformation, Geraldo's Gerry's Fire also inherits the vengeance and wrath buffs from Druids of Wrath, provided it is placed on a Druid of Wrath.

Version History[]

Balance Changes[]

Aside from inheriting balance changes from Heart of Vengeance, Druid of Wrath has not been changed in balance changes since initial release.

9.0
  • BUFF Druid of Wrath now gains a +10% starting attack speed buff upon upgrading. This is part of the potential 100% attack speed buff from Heart of Vengeance.
43.0
[...] Heart of Vengeance itself has been allowed to remain overpowered for a long time since life loss is not always an option in different challenges/modes, but with newer competitive modes being added over time that do allow for this mechanic to be, overindulged, shall we say, it feels due for substantial rebalance.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • NERF Druid of Wrath's Heart of Vengeance lost lives maximum rate bonus reduced 100% to 50%

Bug Fixes and General Changes[]

28.0
