The Dryad in the midst of her blessing.

Dryad's Blessing is a buff granted through the Dryad's NPC action. Rather than attacking nearby enemies, the Dryad casts a shield of leaves while enemies are near.

All players and NPCs will gain the following effects while within the range of the Dryad's ability:

  • +8 Defense to players and +6 / +10 / +14 Defense to NPCs
  • +20% Thorns effect (20% damage reflected onto attacker, stackable with Thorns buff only)
  • +3 Health per second regeneration rate
  • Visual effect: Green sparkle trail from feet while moving

Enemies are afflicted with the Dryad's Bane debuff, which applies 2 damage per-second to enemies within the Dryad's leaf field, with the following potential bonuses:

  • +10% for each pre-Hardmode boss that has been defeated (except King Slime and Wall of Flesh)
  • +40% if the Wall of Flesh has been defeated
  • +15% for each Hardmode boss that has been defeated (except the Moon Lord and event bosses).
    • With all bosses defeated in a normal-mode world, total damage rate is 10 per second.
  • +50% in Expert Mode worlds, and defeated boss bonuses are applied as multiples instead of additions.
    • With all bosses defeated in Expert mode, total damage rate is 16 per second.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The buff stacks with the Thorns buff, but not with the thorns effect from the Turtle armor set bonus, which overrides it.
  • The reflected damage is capped at 1000.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The tooltip is based on the saying, "The power of Christ compels you!" from the classic film The Exorcist.
