    I'd say skillers with life, but if you can't afford them, enough skillers for near 3K tornado and the rest small of vita's.

    just go pure skillers. With a decent oak and BO you should have enough life, depending on whether you went max block or pure vita.

    Either way, 10 skillers.

    I gotta go soon so no time for a proper reply... :(

    Go 10x Ele GCs.

    +Skills are MUCH more effective on casters than +Life, unless the +Life is HUGE.

    If you're really that "paranoid" :rolleyes: about life even though a proper Hi lvl Druid should have maxed or near maxed Oak Sage with CtA, then just get Skillers with 40 Life... If you had 3x 20 Life SCs, that'd be 60. 1x Ele GC with 40 Life would be 40.

    Only 20 difference... multiply that by 10 and that's only 200 difference, and that doesn't even count for getting multiplied by Oak / BO... and yet you'd kill so much faster with +10 Elemental Skills... Not to mention a Kickass Cyclone Armor that basically counts as "LIFE" against elemental dudes...

    - Dennis :thumbsup:

    i forget whose quote it was, maybe snarg or fenris. anyway...

    'damage is king'

    the faster they die, the better.

    if pvp is getting that tight, consider a decent telly ammy or circlet, if you're not already using enigma.

    if you're getting chewed up, you're sitting still too long. how bout a summon charge of some sort to distract them? if you've got balls of solid brass, try to time between their clicks, and run straight at them. that'll freak most people out, lol

    meh i'm drunk, and i haven't played in 6 months, ignore me. :)

    Tele Ammys takes way too much to repair, especially if its not used on a WW Barb where you tele once and kill, but a Windy Druid, and you will need to tele around a lot.

    It is generally recommened to Minion Stack, so put 1 in Raven for prereq and 1 in Spirit Wolves, and before every duel summon max 5 of em.

    btw your avatar looks like your vision when you're drunk Crogon..... :thumbsup:

    spirit wolf is better than dire

    with 1base point in each u can summon 5 spirit wolves or 3 dire wolves

    and either way they die fairly easily, so 5 wolves beats 3

    Bears are better tanks in most situations. Best place to start is, if you WANT a tank grizzly, plan on maxing grizzly, then add 5 points to dire wolves. That gives him a nice boost. If you can't spare that many points don't bother, as he won't be able to tank end game very well. In this case, I wouldn't bother with the wolf/bear branch, but you could put 1 ravens and 1 spirit wolf to get some meat shields to throw in front of monsters. Ok so maybe they would be more like meat popsickles at that low level, but hey, to each their own. :)
