    Firestorm Druid/Summons Question

    Is a Firestorm Druid viable?

    something like:

    20 FS
    20 MB
    20 Fiss
    20 Oak

    and some points in summoning..


    Also, I got this quote off a guide to summoners:


    what is %grizzly maul/bite/swipe

    and also, how much more dmg does a dire wolf do after it has eaten a corpse?

    Everything is 'viable'. It wouldn't be in the game if you couldn't use it.

    well im pretty sure making a psychic hammer assassin wouldnt be viable.

    Let me rephrase. Is it able to go through hell, or do decent in baal runs. Because i really want to make one because i've always loved that skill, but i don't want to make it if it isnt going to kill anything.

    Uhm, firestorm is a pretty weak skill in the long run. It will probably be very hard in 8player games to effectively kill something with it, but if you play alone you could probably be fine.
    However (this might ruin your idea) I would cut some points from synergies and add to max out grizzly+dire wolf. I wouldn't cut down on oak sage since the build itself is pretty weak.

    so basically my suggestion would be:
    20 FS
    20 MB
    20 Direwolf
    20 Grizzly
    20 Oak
    +prereqs to grizzly
    rest in Fissure.

    Or did this interfere with your main idea? You could always try to skip oak and add all to Fissure instead, but that would make you weaker :)

    hmmm... well with FS at lvl 33, and synergies maxed, Firestorm would do about 2k dmg, with 3 prongs.

    Umm, but does anybody know the answer to my summons question?

    really, it doesn't work well

    you're gonna have trouble killing stuff in hell unless you have uber uber gear, and even then it's gonna be rough as heck in 8 player games

    I've tried it

    really, if you want to go summons, you're better off maxing your summons, then putting a point in bear, shockwave, and dump everything else into lycan


    this way you could get a higher life shifted bear's life, get a HIGH damage merc with like pride and might aura to help your bear

    and just shockwave **** while your bear kills with HoW


    do this

    max HoW, Lycan, 1 pt bear, 1 pt maul, 1 pt shockwave, then Max griz and work on spirit and dire (go for the extra damage first imo)

    firestorm used at all

    it's much more viable to spend your points in grizz and the damage synergies for it, max lycan, put a point in bear, maul and shockwave and make basically a shockwave summoner


    But I'd max lycan and use HoW over Oak

    just curious, is +% fire skill dmg, such as ormus robes and fire facets, additive or multiplicative with synergies?
