    How to build a fun ele dru in singleplayer?

    Well?

    The question that bums me the most are: what skills to go for?
    Considering my choice of items will be pretty desperate.
    I have tried hitting things with tornado before, and frankly I hate it. So I would be really happy to try something else.
    In addition, my ideas of playing ele are pretty plain... I have no clue about tactics... what merc to chose... go with melee(thus getting a shield and better res) or with missile weapons(and thus doing some additional damage)?

    thanks,
    adam

    Make a Tornado (sorry, but the skill rocks once you get used to it)/Fissure dr00d. They are helluva fun, if you really don't want to use tornado, maybe go pure fire.

    A sample tornado/fissure druid could be:
    20 Fissure
    20 Tornado
    20 Cyclone Armor
    1 Volcano (boost this when done)
    1 Armageddon
    1 Hurricane (boost this when done)
    1 Oak
    1 Grizzly
    5 Pre-reqs

    Play around with volcano/hurricane ratio as you see fit. :)

    Then again you can play with the Geomancer. Should be fun, bowling all the monsters and stuff.
    If survival comes in the way you can stay away from non-elemental skills and pump them to survive when you feel the time of huge boulders is over.

    oh dear... well, i'll check it... i don't mind if i seem totally un-leet: i simply despise tornado... just as i can't seem to find any joy in hammerdins... i will look into the geomancer and who knows? maybe something new will come to life as a result of this?
    or probably not...
    peace,

    fire druid <- Garbad's guide
    windy druid SP <-Strijdje's guide (he got clvl 99 in single player with this build)
    Dual Elemental <- my guide.
    hybird fire/summoner <- AlterEgo's Hardcore guide

    All are guides supported by the SPF so all are viable in Single player and are fun to play or challenging and fun to play.

    PS if you hate tornado's that much then send me a PM and I will see if I can come up with an alternative to play the dual Elemental druid with twister or maybe a different set of skills (summons maybe?).

    surprise... a simple rtfm would have helped me, as always...
    i believe that i'll go for something in the direction of the hybrid mentioned in alteregos guide... but not sure yet... haven't read all of the guides yet. and yes... i think i'll go with something like hurricane, volcano and some summons, i'll be going high block, though... somehow i like it that way.
    thanks,
