    help me understand: why hunter?

    I am having trouble understanding the point of making a hunter rather than maxing 2 fire skills and make a summon/fire hibrid (other than for having fun, obviously!). A hunter and a summon/fire hibrid will max Grizzly and dire wolves. Then, they'll max either HoW or Oak Sage. At this point, hunters will max 2 other skills, I imagine ravens and poison creeper or spirit wolves. Why not max 2 fire skills that give sinergies to each other like fire storm and volcano. When fighting a PI even with an upgraded kuko and lots of IAS, wouldn't be more effective to cast volcano underneath the thing?

    It might be more effective, and many people do that. It's called a Huntermentalist. But many people are purists. Huntermentalists aren't really pure Hunters. It's the principle of the thing ;)

    Oh ok. I kind of suspected that but wanted to confirm.

    yeah pure hunters also have stronger furry guys. they scale up a lot in damage, and with scaling HoW and a might merc, youll do a high amount of damage.

    PI's you just run away or if you want to atma's scarab it and its toast.

    Two reasons for me

    Fun...by far the most enjoyable D2 character i have made.

    Pride...patriarch a hunter, without godly equipment, or a bit of help shows skill and determinaton (at least I felt it was my biggest accomplishment..did it in 1.10 also :thumbsup: )
