Gruver Bio
Class: Druid
Starting HP: 212
Starting STR: 41

Starting DEF: 42

Gruver is one of the Characters in the game The Metronomicon. He is a Druid.

Gruver joins the party after the boss of Mount Rage is beaten, at level 28.

Strategy[ | ]

Arguably the hardest character in the game to utilise effectively. Like Clark, Gruver only has one offensive ability, so he is restricted to more of a support role. The druid's strengths, rather, lie in his ability to benefit party members with a wide smattering of buffs that can speed up the time in between spells, or the time to cast a spell, among others. Phantom Time when unlocked and utilised effectively can keep a party running on multiple buffs without the need to recast those.

Of note, Gruver is the only character to potentially ward off note stumbles if the Tin Foil Hat ability is equipped, making him a viable choice for streak challenges. His Gift and Fresh Mountain Air abilities, when effectively utilised, can significantly increase the number of Secondary Abilities cast by the other party members - and is in general a powerful combination that can be put to use in a wide variety of situations.
