Druid Pure Summoner Viable for Patriarch?

The title really says it all, is a pure summons druid a viable way to get patriarch? and are there any items that make this viable if its not? (+skills items or crazy good weapons)

Thanks for the replies in advance :thumbup:

Most builds are "viable". Summoner druids are no exception. The killing will be kind of slow, and physical immunes will be a pain though. Do you plan to do any attacking? Or will you just be sitting back and watching the carnage (or not)?

This is my hunter druid, which is a pure summoner (mine has no points at all in either other tree) using a bow to help the minions. I didn't have any problems, really, though it wasn't the world's fastest killer. Quite viable, though. I'm using relatively high-end equipment, but it would work basically as well with more budget choices.

I've got a pure Summoner Patriarch and yes it is doable. I was armed with a dual Shaeled Hellrack, another Hunters type build, and I also carried a Gavel of Pain with me to overcome the PIs, but I when down the Reaper's Toll path for the merc at times. Just a hint, Ravens blinding ability overrides your Amp Dam or your merc's Decrep. That's a pain in the arse.

Ack, I posted in Colorless Green's Pat thread when I meant to post in this one. Oops!

EDIT: I played a Hunter Druid for a while into NM and I think one of the most important things is AR. I recommend Angelics.

wayne did it without any gear, so that makes it seem that with gear, it'd be a breeze.

My friend Ugla patriarched one not long ago (I MPed with that character). He constantly ranted that with a decent weapon, 1pt in Werewolf and Fury, he does ten times more damage than all of his summons.
