PvM Elemental Zeal Druid - need some advice! Hey, I haven't posted in this section before now, and in fact I'm playing my first druid at the moment, un-twinked on ladder. I've been planning a PvM fire melee druid using the Passion runeword for zeal, with points in summoning for support. Similar to the hunter builds, I want something that lets me be active while waiting for spells to come off cd - I just find melee more fun and it goes well with armageddon/hurricane. I've found next to nothing about such druid builds, so I've had to plan the character myself. My druid is currently only level 47, in nightmare, but this is the build I'm going for: fire zeal druid. (I picked oak sage on my druid, but I think HoW would've been a better choice) So far it's been a blast. Running into a group with armageddon and hurricane (for slow) up, and spamming fissure and fighting makes you feel like a real force of nature. My melee is quite weak atm, but that's because the gear I have is bad. Still, it's great fun. But I'm starting to wonder if wind would've been a better choice? Hurricane is really helpful so far, even with no synergies. Armageddon is only lvl 1 on my druid so far, with around 10 points invested in fissure and volcano each - and geddon isn't doing much at all. Will it get better? On the other hand, fissure is incredible and clears whole packs in seconds. I also can't fire and forget tornadoes like I can fissure, so points in tornado would only be useful for the dmg bonus to hurricane. Wind also requires a much larger skill point investment, which weaken my summons. Any suggestions? I'd also like to hear what you think of the gear I'm aiming for. Note that since I'm playing untwinked, this is pretty cheap stuff. Weapon - Passion (flail or berserker axe? not sure), Demon Limb for switch Shield - Spirit Armor - Duress/Fortitude Helm - Shako or Guillaume, maybe Ravenlore despite its ugliness Gloves - IK gauntlets (+25% IAS with IK belt) Belt - IK belt Boots - War traveler/Gore Rider Rings - Ravenfrost and life leech ring Amulet - Highlord's Wrath I need some +skill for zeal, but beyond that, I'm a little clueless :scratchchin: As for merc, I'm thinking holy freeze if I go fire, and might if I go wind. With Insight poleaxe allowing me to spam spells. Hope to hear any thoughts you might have. Thanks!
