Games Radar presents us with a sneak peak of the Dryads's Combat Arts and some ingame screenies.

Meet the Dryad
EXCLUSIVE screenshots and details for Sacred 2ís new nature loving class
Words: Tyler Nagata, GamesRadar US

Diablo III may look awesome, but itíll be quite some time before the franchise that redefined the dungeon crawling genre hits store shelves. In the meantime, Sacred 2 continues to look like a sweet sequel for lovers of leveling up and loot. We recently scored an exclusive sneak peek at the Dryad, one of the new classes lined up for Sacred 2. Scroll on for some fresh screenshots and a first look at her deadly skills.

Good bit of work going into the titles and descriptions of these. Was it Ascaron who is doing them?

And gosh...had to look up what the word Edaphic means

I think that ascaron is pulling out all the stops with Sacred 2. The combat arts for the dryad really make me want to try her first. The shrunken head thing is kind of interesting.

If I fall in the forest and there is no one to hear me, will I make a sound?

Yes. I've passed along your sentiments about them to the person responsible, it's always nice to be able to let someone know when their efforts are appreciated :drinks:

heh, as I posted in the [url="http://"http://forum.sacredeng.ascaron-net.com/index.php?quot;"]SIF[/url]... I was trying to use that word edaphic twice in one day (Apparently this is how we really learn a new word)...

Fail
