    I think druids are just fine in the bg series, im finding a lot of use out of them, ( although I play unmodded bg games so maybe that's why), in fact I've been playing with them a lot more recently, they playthrough I have right now my main holmes is a gnome illusionist/cleric so having jaheira come along and setting all her spells to healing/slow poison/summons is working very very well

    I do admit about the class kits though, I don't know why they got rid of the CON bonus for shapeshifters with the EEs that makes absolutely 0 sense, it wasn't that great of kit to begin with, now it's basically pure garbage ( the AC bonus is nice, but their damage will never get better and it's not that good to begin with)

    the avenger kit looks cool, but the problem is all their shapeshifts are still weak as balls, I was in bg at the gnoll stronghold and I shapeshifted into a salamander and I was getting my butt kicked by gnolls, um lol? that's complete crap, yes I understand you don't want shapeshifts to be OP, but seriously, that's complete garbage

    although the totemic druid isn't too bad, especially at lower levels the summons are great, and even when you get to higher levels they are still good because at higher levels summons are more used for distracting enemies not dishing out the beat downs, plus druids get elemental summoning which can be used for that

    what I find to be very effective is fighter druids, even being a multi class they still have great level progression in their druid class in terms of level up speed until mid SoA then it slows down to a snail in molasses, but its still all good, I still find them to be very useful; with their summoning and healing spells

    the thing that needs to be remembered is that not every class is supposed to be a DPS power house, this isn't WoW or DnD 3.5 where everyone is obsessed with dealing a 7 digit number amount of damage, that's not how the BG series works

    druids are just fine they way there are, if people are finding that they suck, then you are definitely playing them wrong, saying a druid's spells suck is like saying fish suck because they cant climb trees and because of that you bash fish for it, but yet when it comes to swimming in water you are doing it with monkeys instead of fish, because you were so adamant about climbing trees you now have no fish to help you swim

    All the kits are amazing if used properly.

    Agreed. Each class has it's place, strengths, and weakness. DnD3.5 or later got into that bad.
