A nice support unit. Does she have an attack, or is she like the Witch Doctor and take a support role only?

YES! YES! I called this a while back and wanted a savage Dryad and you guys delivered (minus the skull and ribcage jammed on a branch but close enough.)

bit surprised as it's role as a healer but I knew there would be entangling branches, even more interested with the Vampire now and slightly curious if Dryads can melee attack

She does have a projectile basic attack which can be used to inflict minor damage to units, of course as always this is subject to change.

cool, IO noted the bit about Necromancers and Vampires specifically being it's enemies because of defiling nature, seeing as Necromancers get defence buffs with all the Ghouls next to it and Vampires are going to be super late game units then would say a Druid have like a nature buff to more damage vs undead or is it only the Huntress who will be doing additional passive damage with her silver arrows?

Generally the dryad is just a support unit and doesn't bring anything to the table in terms of making undead easier to kill. She simply has a innate hatred of beings which would circumvent the natural order of things, however I'm sure her entangling vines combined with the terrific slaying power of the huntress would make a bad day for any shambling foe!

Ok, what would you say the Dryad's core role is?
well it has a root to stun for a few seconds and a special that imobilizes an enemy and all surrounding him so it seems to be a disruptive enemy that backup heals as needed. Suppose she would be great for stopping a mass charge in it's tracks for a few moments which gives a little bit of extra magic casting time to damage our minions.

Circle of Life seems OP
Well it relies on you killing the Dryad to heal nearby empire units, ways around it is to not kill said Dryad obviously and focus on burning down the other empire units health fast, OR kill it first so the other enemies do not get much of a bonus from it or crowd control it with stuns/silence/ fear what ever tool you have to keep it from healing and yet not dying and then kill it when all its friends are dead.

She's listed as CC/zoner in our spreadsheets.

Probably will try to poke someone's eye on the battlefield. Not much of an attack, but each eye poked out successfully will count and matter a lot.
