Good day to you all!
I played D2LOD back in the 1.08 days & got moderately rich. In Jan. my brother talked me into playing again. Since I did so well with my Fury Druid in 1.08, I naturally returned to that subclass.
I discovered the sins of my ways when I got to Hell !
During one of my numerous NM Baal runs, I ran into a Wind Druid. While taking out Baal's minions together we chatted about the merits of Wind Druids and the nerfing of melee Druids.
Well he hooked me and I started building one. Fenris' guide came out when I was about lvl 30 and that helped me a lot with figuring out my gear. Anyway I've got a successful 87 lvl Wind Druid in US East ladder and am looking for my next build.
Well I looked at the skill trees and though the Summoner would be fun. Remembering my melee Druid lessons I looked for alternative damage and found Carrion Wind & Rabies that look like a good bet.
So making a long story short I've read all the guides, followed the forum religiously for 3 months. Now I've got a 18th lvl Summoner and am looking for guidance on equipment & strategies for PvM maybe someday moving to PvP but don't bet on it.
Current equipment is Sigon Set + Angelic Set (no armor) + 1 Cathan ring.
Main stat goals:
Str: 86 (103 - 17 from my annihilus)
Dex: 208 (225 - 17 from my annihilus)
Enrg: 20 (base)
Main skill goals:
Raven: 5-10 ?
The Dex is for a Storm Shield (should I ever find one) but why not use this stat to equip a ranged weapon too.
This way I've got ranged & summons most of the time but I've got a weapon switch & rabies for Phys Immune. A Reaper's Toll on a Might merc. will help a lot too.
My skills allow this but what about the equipment! I've lost the link to the Hunter guide so I can't compare/contrast that equipment to the recommendations for the Rabies builds!
I'm a mixture of poor & rich. I've been mfing with my Wind Druid for a while and am starting to find good stuff (I found an Ali Babba 2 days ago that brought my mf up to ~370 :winner: ). I don't have anything close to BotD, Enigma, or other super elite stuff.
However, I do have eth shaftstop (on my Wind Druid's Merc), Reapers Toll (on my Wind Druid's merc), Griswold's armor, Wiz Spike, 1 SOJ, 1 Nagelring (29%!), 1 Annihilus (17 Stat, 14 resis, 8% exp), 1 Gheed's (38%!), Wind Hammer, all of Tal's but the ammie, plus a lot of other comparable stuff.
Other than close friends I really haven't gotten into the Trade scene but I probably could trade up for better if I don't have anything close to the recommendations. Maybe I should start trading?
Please let me know what your equip recommendations might be for this tri-subclass character might be!
