Well, with land circle: coast you get mirror image and misty step. So a wild elf druid could dual-wield any combination of longsword, club and flaming scimitar, or switch to shield as needed, and buff themselves with mirror image, using misty step as needed. Weapons have the advanatage of having their own magical protperties. Poison I'm not sure about, can you poison your own fangs as a shapeshiffted animal?
But I'm roleplaying my drow druid, so that's just guesswork on my part.
