So apparently I was missing a druid to get a septvirate. So I finished this guy. As much as I love casters, I freaking hate the random pattern of Tornado as much as I hate blessed hammer. Being able to reposition himself with Enigma kinda solved the problem. That's what OP Runewords are for, aren't they? Anyway remind me a lot of the gameplay of an underpowered hammerdin. And I hate hammerdins. That's why this section is so small. I mean, your game plan is: teleport to your enemies because you are tanky and spam your main skill and hope for the better because you aren't able to direct it better.

Plans for the future
I'd like to try AT with this guy. But I will probably burn his socket quests and retire him.

Congrats on the Pat and completing your Sept. I hear you about the randomness of Tornado and Blessed Hammer *grits teeth*.

Congrats. Well done !!! I actually like Hammerdins. But never played many Windy Druids and seem to recall I hated the erratic pathing as well.
