Dryads are mobs which increase crop growth. Killing five in succession will summon the fearsome Nature Guardian.


The dryad appears as a girl with dark hair, and blue eyes. She wears a simple garland of leaves around her head, and a short green spaghetti-strap dress and dark green armbands and bracelets. The only visible shoes are dark green stripes on the bottoms of the feet. Several dryads will spawn together and will wander around in the general spawn area. Skins may vary with certain texture packs.

Arcane Compendium[edit]

"Dryads are peaceful creatures often found in forests and grasslands. They can be lured in with a sapling and will periodically make nearby plants grow faster."


The dryad has 20 health. It is passive, meaning it will not attack the player. It has a chance of dropping one life essence upon death.
