Since D3 wasn't satisfying for more than a few months, I've found myself back playing D2 to satisfy the old Diablo itch. This time around I'm working on clearing Hell solo, untwinked, and on HC with every class. I actually don't have much HC experience despite playing D2 right from the initial release like 15 years ago, but i cleared Hell easily with a Skelliemancer last year, and I'm close to finished with my 2nd K/T hybrid Sin (first one died to FE ancient on NM.. won't make that mistake again). The next class that i would like to try is the Druid which brings me to my question... What's a strong build for this style of play? My plan was to try a wind druid since it can do both physical and cold damage and can easily get max Cyclone Armor for defense. My rule of thumb for HC is max defense first and respec later if necessary, so the level 80 build would be: 20 Cyclone Armor, Tornado, Hurricane, Dire Wolf 5 Oak Sage (points beyond lvl 80 would go here) 1 Arctic Blast, Twister, Raven, Spirit Wolf, Poison Creeper, Summon Grizzly Thoughts? I'm open to an entirely different build too (provided it works with crappy gear), so all suggestions are welcome.
