I would say yes the Druids plants and tree are weak to fire.

If a Druid runs:

Kralathor
4 x Raptor Vine
4 x Vine Snapper
4 x Thornlasher              24 spellbookpoints

and is up against

2 x Fire Elemental
4 X Flaming Hellion         24 spellbookpoints

Nothing stops a Warlock from bringing more creatures with a flame attack.


Yes the Druid is weak to fire, if she doesnt have any counters to Fire Creatures.

Druid has a pretty big spellbook and lots of counters to fire. If she include those counters and others like the Guardian Angel + defend or other creatures common in Druid books like Timber Wolfs/Grizzlies she counters her weakness to fire at least to some degree.

A Siren with only Water Attacks and no creatures maybe.
Plants are generally Hydro Immune, so most Water attacks (except Acid Ball) are useless. Also, Water Elemental is useless.

Plants don't Bleed, so that nerfs the Deptonnes and Undead Pirates. Ditto for Coral Reef wall.

Plants can't be moved, so Merrens aren't any good. Ditto for Bed of Urchins. Similarly, most of Grapple is irrelevant (aside from the attack dice modifier). And the most popular songs don't do much because Plants can't move, and Uproot isn't mandatory.

So... with rare exception, Sirens have few tricks available vs Druid.

Of course, a Siren can play out-of-school attacks, but you're already suggesting Fire spells are no good vs Plants, so I don't know what you have in mind. As far as I can tell, you're just trolling at this point.

Uh, we don't want to call anyone a troll yet. I do not believe littlenog is trolling, maybe his points just got mixed up or something.

I was not trolling.

I am saying a Siren has plenty of weapons at her disposal.

A Siren fighting a druid is like a warlock fighting a Necromancer.

Druid by design and creatures are just water resistant and Necromancers are poison resistant that is all.

The picture painted in the quoted post was to me from a water aspect.  Which is why I commented if she was a water only Siren.

Well, it is true that most druids don't take Togorath, but if aggressive sirens will become too common they might start including him. Or if they want some cheaper counter to aggresive sirens they could go for a couple of Leviathan scale armor, since it is also in school for them. The eagleclaw boots most druids take anyway are also a pretty good counter since being unmovable make you ignore pushed and turn slams into dazes.

But let say that one druid only have barkskin (which is a cantrip) and his tree for his defence, and that the siren has her ring and hawkeye for her offence. If the siren attack one round with 2 attacks of 4 dice (when she don't have initiative) and one round with 2 attacks of 5 dice, then against a mage with armor 2 that heals 4 every upkeep phase it will take the siren way too much time to kill the druid.
