    Hellcast Crossbow for Fury Druid

    I can't figure out what in the world blizzard was thinking with this crossbow as the strength requirement makes it useless for a zon. I was wondering if it would have any use for a fury druid like buriza was used in 1.09, since it can be dual shaeled. If anyone has any input I'd appreciate it. Thx

    You could always plug the numbers in the calculator.

    It's too slow though 10/6 Dual Shaeled.

    The best it can do is 10/6 with 1 Ias Jewel and 1 Shael... Not TOO bad... but there's much better out there nowadays.

    Buriza could reach 8/5 with a Shael which is a noticeable difference... and the damage was very similar with lower Requirements.

    There's nearly as much sense for a Druid to waste the Str for Hellcast as there is for a Zon... He wouldn't get any extra ed% from the Str, it would just allow him a bigger armor.

    A Bear could make use of the big defensive boost, and he always needs elemental damage... so this may be a place for Hellcast. With 2 Ias Jewels and 40%Ias from gear, you'd reach 11 frames. not too Horrible. With 2 Shaels and 35%Ias, you'd reach the same.

    Your call.
