    Patriarch JanosSkorzeny

    Another character class pat'd! This is my fourth one. I had never played a Druid before and thanks to all those who gave advice on how to proceed. I built him as a straight Fury Druid, no elemental skills. I guess you could say that a ton of physical damage is always my preference. The character is named after the Chuck Connors character from the FOX TV show Werewolf from the late 80's of which I am a huge fan.

    Patriarch JanosSkorzeny
    level 78
    maxed Werewolf, Lycanthropy, Fury and Heart of Wolverine
    all stats after WW transformation and with HoW spirit:
    life:1912
    mana:378
    dama: 1440-2875 (about 3k when merc aura is working)
    stats with gear:
    STR: 200
    DEX: 240
    VIT: 180
    ENE:53
    all resists 75% in Hell

    Baranar's Star/Tiamat's Rebuke w/Um
    Lionheart Ornate Plate
    Jalal's Mane w/Um (dropped in Hell Hellforge)
    String of Ears 15% dam reduc
    Raven Frost/rare ring with 7%ll and resist all 8%
    rare ammy with +2 druid skills, 5%ll, and 34 life
    Hellmouth War Gauntlets
    Sandstorm Trek Scarabshell Boots

    Gheed's Charm and rest of charms gave 116 life, 59 mana, 175 poison, 144 lightning, allresists +11 and other assorted stats
    Acts Might merc Mizan with ethereal Spire of Honor Lance, Shaftstop, and Vamp Gaze helm

    This was kind of a boring character but then again I probably should have expected it since I am traditionally a melee guy and this was nothing new. In retrospect, I probably should have tried some of the elemental builds for a fresh experience. All things considered, Act5 Hell gave me the most trouble with PI but the elemental dam I have in charms and on my gear helped considerably.

    The only drop I had worth mentioning was the Um I used for my Jalal's. Now, if I have done anything strange here skillwise or gearwise I plead ignorance and poverty. Like I said, I have never touched the class before and I was a little perplexed as to weapon choice (shield/no shield?) so I just used what worked.

    Next project is probably going to be a dual claw Venom 'sin or maybe just a Meteorb sorc since I have yet to build a sorc in 1.10. I started the 'sin but I believe I may have made the same mistake I did with this druid. I need a different build to push me to a new playing style. I was thinking of a Trapsin if they are viable. Only three more classes to go...

    Congrats! Is the name from the Harry Turtledove series? If so, great choice! :clap:

    Congrats on the Patriarch, I amazed you did it at quite a low level. I usually Pat my characters around lv 82 - 85

    Congrats ;)

    Considering he has 240 Dex combined with baranar's, werewolf, Fury and HoW I can't see how he'd have AR issues. ;)

    That combined with the dex I got from all my gear didn't make AR any problem whatsoever. The biggest pains in the butt were the obvious: ranged attacks, Gloams, Iron Maiden, the usual suspects

    Congrats!

    Sure, the more str you have the more damage you fury.

    The "enough str to equip your items" doesn't apply to fury druids.

    Well, as it says right above it, those stats are after item bonuses...

    Congrats on the Pat!

    <sigh> I was waiting for someone to bring this up. I deleted the stash my brother gave me and am now working from my own finds as I kept my stuff seperate.

    10 chars? Good for you.
