    Druid and d3?

    OK people with the rumors growing on the possibility of D3 being released in the not that distance future (some say even before the end of the year). What will happen with out favorite character the druid? Will he be back? What changed should be made?

    Info about D3 is on www.diabloii.net
    The rumor started when this site got an email about some guy who said he was recording music for D3.

    I somehow suspect that there won't be a Druid class in Diablo 3:(

    As for changes, I'd like to see some more synergies if the present system is kept intact. Some interesting summon synergies and definitely the capability of having more than 3 wolves/1 Grizzly, maybe add some more summonable creatures (some kind of animate tree perhaps). Also be able to cast spells while in Wereform, and not just Armageddon. Maybe some more Earth type spells like...Wind/Fire/Cold are rather dominant in the Druid spell arsenal.

    Tor, i have to disagree with you on that, or maybe its just on Europe there aint no good shifters. They simply cant keep up with casters, wich i find kinda sad bcuz wolfs look so cool.. imagine if they could tele while shifted oO

    Yeah more summons, and some bird like shifting (maybe a Griffon or what its called).

    A new cool weapon for D3 would be some sort of whip (like the one Shenk use)

    Probably because you're dueling in pubs. Any decent caster who can teleport well won't be killed easily by a fury wolf.

    I doubt blizz will just a remove a character. The will probably add a few characters and release the game and make some money off kiddies.

    Diablo III will be released on the exact same date the Druid gains the ability to shapeshift into a Merman!
    I pray there is no Diablo III so my 'godly' Necro can stay the way he is.

    Don't forget to mention that he will auto-spawn with merman's sprokets~~

    About this druid vrs tele-caster thing, any half brained melee druid will have frw, and a smart one will partially charge up feral just to get some more if the caster is being totaly deffensive.

    Well, any half brained caster will not get close enough to be hit unless it's a wind druid because of their shorter range. And you can't always be dodging or else you'll never get an attack in. The best chance a wolf has to hit a caster is when they stop to shoot, and you will probably take some hits there unless the caster has no idea how to aim.

    I'm always up for a duel if you guys want to test your wolf vs caster theories.

    i would expect more might and magic (VI, VII, VIII) thingies like skill professions (ie expert, master etc..)

    and for the pvp thing, why dont the druid forum make a pvp strat guide?

    just pvp strategies (like how to bite ww barbs with rabies without getting much hits), no PvM thing.

    any oldies around?

    I think it would be cool if they came up with skills you could invest points in for your summons. For example, you could put points into a skill that your summoned bear would use to deal more damage or have a different attack style.
