This thread will be devoted to the Druid in my Oskill Sept. The principle of the Sept is simple: every character will use an oskill as main attack. In the case of Meshuggah this oskill is Berserk, granted through the Passion runeword: Code: Passion +25% Increased Attack Speed +160-210% Enhanced Damage (varies) 50-80% Bonus To Attack Rating (varies) +75% Damage To Undead +50 To Attack Rating Against Undead Adds 1-50 Lightning Damage +1 To Berserk +1 To Zeal Hit Blinds Target +10 Hit Causes Monster To Flee 25% 75% Extra Gold From Monsters Level 3 Heart of Wolverine (12 Charges) This character will be played on SC SP, twinked. Player setting will be adjusted depending on killing speed. For most of my twinked characters this means /p8 for at least normal and nightmare. After that player setting is set so that killing speed is still good. Respecs are allowed. In my past 2 Septs this was only allowed to optimize stat distribution, but for this Sept any respec is allowed. I'm not going to level up that Wolfbarb to 79 with just normal attack available ... . I will try to keep respecs somewhat limited to the theme. So for example the Sorc won't be a Charged Boltress early on, or that Bear Paladin a Hammerdin. On to the plan ... Character name Meshuggah. Not much inspiration, but this one seemed very appropriate as well. Meshuggah is the name of one of my favourite bands, and it's derived from the Yiddish word meshuga, which means crazy, or insane. Fitting for a character who will go Berserk ... Build Berserk Druid, based on this guide. My skill setup will be different though. Planned skill layout Cyclone Armor, Hurricane, Twister, HoW: maxed Grizzly and Carrion Vine: 1 point Rest of the points probably in Carrion Vine Planned endgame gear - Helm: Jalal's Mane Being a Druid is reason enough; all the stats on the item are even more of a reason to use it - Body Armor: Fortitude huge ED%, resists, chilling armor - Belt: Verdungo's or rare fhr, major life - Boots: Gore Riders The melee boots - Gloves: 20% ias needed, probably Laying of Hands 20% ias needed, combined with Highlord's Wrath, to reach a 9 frame attack with my current weapon of choice - Amulet: Highlord's Wrath ias, DS, +skill, lightning resist - Ring 1: Ravenfrost CBF and massive AR - Ring 2: rare with life steal, AR, min damage - Weapon: Passion Shillelagh Other weapons have higher average damage, but Shillelagh would be something different for a change, fits very well with a Druid and reaches 9 frame attack speed with Fortitude, while other, more damaging weapons, probably require Treachery; an alternative would be to go 1H + shield, probably using a Passion Cadeceus in that case, but for now I want to try 2H first - weapon switch: CtA and Spirit shield Merc Act 1 Rogue with Faith Bow, Treachery and Andariel's Visage Build before Passion Not sure. Probably Rabies / Feral Rage or just plain Feral Rage That's about it as far as the theory is concerned. Time to start things in practice. I will give a few updates here as I progress. As I said before, suggestions, criticism, advice is more than welcome to help me get the most out of this character.
