    Hurricane Armageddon Viability

    I was wondering if a build where you maxed Hurricane, Armageddon, Volcano and Tornado and then dumped the rest into cyclone armor would be viable; with massive +skills from Earth Shifter, magic/rare amulets/circlets/druid pelts, GC's Hellfire and Anni, I think you could get your spells past level 40 without too much trouble.

    I think you would cast Hurricane and Armageddon, then Volcano and spam Tornados until you can cast volcano again. recast Armageddon after duration wears out.

    I think this kind of spell slinging action would look extremely cool. Plus the rad factor of throwing around your 4 highest level elemental spells in conjunction.

    Can it work guys?

    Uh.. It seems needing to be maintained a lot. It sounds more like a geddon druid who wants to use hurricane to me but really I don't like how it'd turn out.

    1st: with maxed synergies hurricane does like a 2k - 2.2k (with mid gear, slvl 37)
    it gets his dmg fom it skills itself , 9% from twister and 9% from tornado.. pumpin cyclone armor only exend its duration time..
    its a nice crowdcontrol spell but imo at 37slvl and while playing on +/p5 the dmg sux and i wouldnt rely on killing cold immunities with it and if you pump only tornado , (which with full synergies at slvl37 gives you 4.5-4.7k) your hurricane will do approx 1.7k - 1.9K. if you plan on goin over slvl40 then you might get ovet 2k which stuill sux :)

    2nd: i wouldnt use earthshifter if you cant coupe the FCR with other gear a.k.a slow tornadospam ( im using HoTo and spirit shield and gettin over ) you will miss many other caster beneficial stats by ust gotin for +skills..

    Anyway in hell there are way too many fire immunities and thus relying on Tornado physical dmg would be critical but if you neglect FCR you lower your dmg way back! a fair framerate to spam tornado is 11 and it can break at 99% FCR , 10 is 163% iirc

    the harsh requirements for synergies on both sides makes that build tough. Go with pure fire or windy till end of NM, then full windy in hell
