Hunter advice? Well, one night I was late up and I thought "apart from the necromancer's skeletons (which look stupid), I wonder if there's any other summons that I can use as an effective killer". So I tried a maxed valk (suprise suprise, it didn't work), a maxed shadow master (didn't work too well, it was amazingly cool though), and finally maxed druid summons. Immagine my suprise when they worked... until this point I've only played as solo druid characters (perhaps using spirit wolves or something as tanks that absorb 1 shot). Well, I went to the druid forums, had abit of a look around, and discovered that hunters (so they were called, abit of a silly name imho) are actually not too bad. So anyway, enough on the backstory, I kinda need to ask a few questions. 1), I was thinking of having ONLY dexterity to up my bow damage (oh, and enough strength to use my gear). Is this viable?... should I go vitality heavy instead? 2) What bow is good?.. I mean, everyone's saying Kuko or witchwild (by the looks of it), but what about goldstrike? Will the fist of heaves on strike heal my minions? 3) Is spirit wolves worth maxing?.. for the defense bonus?... they seem to die fairly fast 4) Is poison vine any good?... I mean maxed? If I don't use it, what vine *SHOULD* I use?... or shouldn't I use one at all because it destroys corpses my dire wolves could probably use anyway 5) How many points is ideal in ravens? 6) What kind of merc should I use?... I mean, might is good (obviously), but considering how fast minions appear to die, would thorns be better?... I mean, if a monster hits my minion for 200 damage, that gets reflected back at 2000 damage.... is it still any good though?... would holy freeze be better (for surviablity) or are my minions good enoough tanks as it is? Oh, and btw, I'm dirt poor right now, so I'm not capable of affording any expensive items like shako, enigma, etc, Oh, and lastly, reaper toll is still worth a fortune, right?
