    Default Is this Druid archetype overpowered? Circle of the Blossom

    Hey all. I'm running a campaign in the fall and some of my players were unhappy with the classes and archetypes that are out there, so I've made them some that work for their characters better. I posted yesterday about my Paladin archetype, the Oath of Loyalty (here's the link to that thread: http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showt...-Loyalty-(HELP!))

    I'm looking for any advice or tips, or anything that I may have missed about these archetypes.

    The Circle of the Blossom is all about plants, as the name suggests. This is for a druid who focuses on the flora rather than the fauna of nature, as I've always thought that druids should have a plant archetype. So I made one. The player is a half-dryad botanist, so this was really the only option as no other classes worked at all.

    So here it is, please tell me what you think.

    P.S. any help on the Paladin subclass would be appreciated as well.

    Though to be fair, this is quite similar to my circle, so I don't have too many comments for you. Perhaps Florian Fluency is too wishy-washy and overly-complicated; better to just give them Speak with Plants and be done with it. The AC for the seedling seems a bit low, not that it's hugely important. But otherwise, I'd say it's pretty nice.
