    Good PvM build for Earth Shifter?

    Anyone have any recommendations for a build using an Earth Shifter? Found one the other day and, having never played a Druid before, am looking for a little guidance. Looking through the builds for the elemental Druids it seems to be pretty well scorned as too slow and two-handed. But setting aside a HoTO (way to rich for my poverty ^_^) or other one handed skill caster weaps, what builds might it be useful for?

    But any way to design a melee caster hybrid, maybe? Perhaps a Windy and just keep throwing up cyclone shield and hurricane? Thoughts?

    I would think that a Windy would benefit most with that weapon. Use 2xFCR rings to make up for the use of the Shifter.

    Just my 2 cents

    Earth Shifter has real nice dmg. I would suggest a Werebear/Armageddon Druid.

    earthshifter is unfortunately way too slow to be use on a bear(if you had maul or fireclaw in mind, that is)

    Try this one on for size Dual Elemental druid

    You have to use this variant but it will work fine, defense and blocking will be an issue that you need to figure out.



    Oh and don't forget to socket and Hel that earthshifter, it's one of the most stat intensive items in the game.
