    Of course :p.

    A wind druid can unload 5k+ tornados that hit more than once, pierce, and more fast cast makes more!

    h/o wait a sec here. I did the dmg calc for elemental skills. And i quote "2924 to 3116 Physical Damage" thats at lvl 28 tornado. Assuming i get +8 to skills, thats skill like around 3k, how did you get 5k with tornado?

    you can get a lot more than just +8 to elemental skills.

    +10 skill charms
    +3 amulet
    +2 armor
    +3 weapon
    +1 shield
    +2 rings
    +1 belt
    +3 helm
    =
    +25 elemental

    that'd give you lvl +45 to all elemental skills.

    EDIT: maxing tornado and each of its synergies with +25 to elemental skills would yield 5971-6272 damage for tornado.

    The question relevant to those of us who aren't rich is: Are druids good untwinked?

    As long as you do your homework, druids aren't that hard to use, my druid is very budget and can own most melee but barbs.

    Budget = You couldn't sell it all for a high rune if you went for a week in channels.

    Fire druids are good PvM. Not "steam-roller every thing by himself in the Worldstone Keep in an 8 player game" amazing. But good. Online in mp games you need better gear and more +skills to compete with other people. Not to mention a comploete change of tactics when there are so many people running around distracting the monsters. I used Fissure almost exclusively in large games cause its about the only way I can hit stuff. It is the only way if there is an overlord necro going about, cause I can't aim at what I can't see...

    Yea, but then you could do so much damage with any skill. If you had +25 to all skills for any char, they'd be godly. Im saying on a regular wind druid with up to 10 to + skills

    it's +25 to just the elemental tree, not all three. and even with +10 to elemental or to all skills, they still do excellent damage and are quite capable of killing in hell.

    They are good untwinked fire. You will just have to wait until I put my guide out to be sure though :p.

    It may be up later tonight, if not, tomorrow.
