Gonna plan out a summoner just to try and Pat him in SP (I only use self found items)
I have this equipment still available for him and not in use by my other chars:
Almost every exceptional unique bow/xbow except for witchwild string
Full Aldur's set
That being said, I'm thinking of either a hunter (with maxed out HoW/dire/grizz/poison creeper/rest into spirit wolves) using either one of the mentioned bows or gimmershred + moser's/gerke's, or building a shockwave summoner using full aldur's set.
Anybody who has done both/either of these builds want to comment on the challenges/fun factor of either of these routes or give new suggestions? Thanks!
EDIT: Nevermind, disregard this whole post. I just tried out a summoner (hunter variation) and brought him to level 17 using full arctic set. Pretty easy going so far, but it bored me to death.... and if the rest of the game is just gonna be me running around behind my wolves and shooting like it has been so far, it's not going to work for me. It sounded so fun and I had some good gear for it, but just playing like this is killing me =(
