MAjor Help with 2-handed weapon wield druid. Hi druids, ever since i traded for an earthshifter thunder maul, i was pretty interested in making a hybrid druid using shapeshifting as his primary attack and fire spells as his secondary attack. I thought of the following and hes currently standing at lvl 77 : WW - 20 Fury - 20 Armageddon - 20 Volcano - 20 (For synergies, still maxing..) everything else to prerequistes and lycan. My item setup is Aldurs armour Jalals Mane / Cerebus bite / RavenLore? Earth Shifter Draculs gloves / lava gout / Laying of hands? Aldur boots +2 ele rare ammy with resists Raven Frost ring Carrion Wind ring 7 +1 elemental GCs Total +ele skills (19) Firstly, regarding items. Which of the 3 helms should I use as the ultimate helm? Jalals is an all-rounder, Cerebus adds me in shapeshift/open wound and high leech, but on the contrary, ravenlore boosts resists and my elemental skill tree..... And which glove is the best for such kind of druid? So as you can see i wanted to make a dual-handed melee elementalist doing 2 different types of attacks and the fact that although thunder maul is slow, -_- but it has very high dmg, 33% crushing blow, 10ias, chance to cast lvl 14 fissure...all very good encouraging mods for melee combat. I integrated elemental spells into the ww fury druid but now i face some problems. Although I can do 6k fury and 2.8k(lvl40) Armageddeon at lvl 77 but i am having survival problems in hell. My life combined with oak sage is around 1.4k life and Attack rating is around 8k. I need help or guides in surviving as a dual-handed druid. My concerns are : How can i do crowd control mainly?? My druid get pwned and ***** by mobs in an instant..mana burn owns me, arrows own me, awww And monsters hit me too frequently due to lack of block rate and low defense rating...I can always wear an SS but that defeats the whole purpose.... I have no resist problems. Should I get 3 frame FHR? or is IAS really the problem? (I got like 67FHR) Do i need %DR gear? -_- I dont want to change weapons..because i want to see if this setup is feasible. Pls advice..
