    How Can I Improve This Windy?

    Hey guys! I've built a very nice Windy druid for PvM and a little PvP, and was looking for opinions on finishing him off after level 90.
    He has maxed the following skills:
    Oak Sage
    Cyclone Armor
    Tornado
    Hurricane
    *Twister is almost maxed (will max @ lvl 90)
    Thats basically it. I went all out on synergies and Oak Sage; he's doing roughly 4k damage with the 'nado, 1.7k with 'cane. I've got him using HotO, 34fcr Spirit, +3 elemental/+84 life amulet, Trang's gloves, Trang's belt, Ravenfrost, Carrion Wind, and an imbued rare helm that gives +3 to 'nado and +1 to elemental skills (with some other decent, though mostly useless mods).

    What do you guy suggest I do to finish off? I specifically want to upgrade his belt and gloves, and get an uber helm in there. For armour, I'm working on engima, but I'm picky, and I want either a 260+ mage plate or a 3os Archon for it.

    Ty in advance!

    i'm ignoring charms atm; I only restarted a couple weeks ago, so I'm not rich enough to fill an invintory with elemental gcs, lol. As for my equipment... I listed it.

    You only have 94% fcr, you will need arach for belt to hit the 99% breakpoint. Keep trangs gloves for the 20% fcr and the cold res. A cheap helm would be jalals, overlooked alot for a windy but it has nice mods.

    For starters lose the rare pelt for a Jalal's. They're pretty cheap (you should be able to get one for a decent pile of pgems), and the res/stats/fhr are indispensable and just downright hard to beat for so cheap.

    As far as the rest of the gear, Trang's gloves are solid for endgame so I wouldn't worry about upgrading those (you could opt for Magefists if you really wanted the mana regeneration). If you're thinking about pvp, maxblock (with a Stormshield) is worth considering, though I don't know you'll be able to swing it if you've already been using a Spirit and haven't invested in dex as such. You can always upgrade to some fcr rings and an amulet and Arachnid Mesh to help with the fcr while hitting maxblock too. A Wizardspike is always nice to have in the stash when you need some extra res.

    When it comes to the Enigma, you're not going to have any skill % enhanced defense, so I wouldn't fret over the exact stats and would stick with the mage plate to go easy on the reqs. But if you're thinking of investing in the runes for one, I can also see why you'd want a nice base.

    Hope than rambling was marginally coherent and helped a bit.

    edit: see BAMFSpecialOps' post a whole minute ahead of mine.

    Re: How Can I Improve This Windy?

    both very useful, thanks a lot! Already had a jalal's pokin' around, so did that up. I'm terrible with stat allocation, but it should work out okay; I put a fair bit into dex, and I have a good SS to work with. I was definitely thinking arachnid's. so that's no surprise. I'll just grab a wizspike for switch, and I should be good to go ;).

    Also, what would you guys recommend for point allocation after lvl 90 (all synergies maxed)?

    What do your base stats look like? For skills, you have all the syns/oak maxed get at least 1 point in wolves for minion stack.

    Indeed. I have a better circlet myself; so no thanks. For wolves, should I just go for normal, or go up to dire? I'll check my base stats after bnet unrestricts me ;). Too many baal games too fast, ya kno.
