    Pvp druid idea

    I've been a forum lurker for a long time. And after searching the forums for a numerous amount of the same beaten to death issues i had an idea for a pvp druid. May seem kinda pointless but also looks like it might be a lot of fun to.What Im hoping to do is use Hurricane, Tornado, 1 Point volcano, and maxed grizzly to create some what of a stunlock....ish sort of dueler.

    Here it is:

    Gear-
    2/20/2 druid circ
    Hoto
    Enigma
    Stormshield
    maras
    Trangs gloves
    arach
    soj
    bk
    Cta..spirit switch.

    Skill Layout is a little different
    Max:
    Hurricane
    Tornado
    Cyclone armour
    Grizzly

    1 point wonders:
    Volcano***
    oaksage
    How.
    and obviously pre reqs.

    Inventory would be: Torch, anni, 9x ss lifer gcs, and the best 20 life scs with secondary mods you can get...fill in res,fhr holes ect.

    Idea is to tele bomb with 4k+ tornado, 1.5k+ hurricane, a strong bear and use volcano to help stun or send other duelers into hit recovery.
    Any suggestions if this could be viable or does anyone have a build along these lines at all?

    A Wind Shaman? Cano won't force hit recovery at 1 pt. all you'll be doing is hoping to block lock them. The main problem I see with this build is that your multiple sources of damage deal the same damage. Shaman's, Fury/Rabies, FC/Rabies are deadly because they use different types of damage and are thus harder to resist. Bear is damn near inferior to Nado in every way unless you get points into Spirit Wolves so it can actually hit enemies consistently.

    Thats true...maybe stunlock was a bad word. However block lock is just as good. With everything going off at once it will be very hard to namelock me. Yes the damage is the same but a 4k tornado takes chunks off other duelers lives...and the bear packs a huge punch. Shamens are prone to sorb, so is FC and rabies is too much time wasted in a duel. And thats not putting down anyones builds. Physical damage isnt negated completely. 1 point volcano does put people in hit recovery how ever i should have clearified that it's more of a caster skill. Using volcano on amazons, sorcs, and necro's can delay them so they can be telebombed. With melee fissure should do the trick to force a lock. It's just an idea though...there are alot of note worthy druid players on these forums..yourself being one of them...just good to hear some advice from the pros. It seemed like a fun alternative to pure ele or summoners :). And i don't have any luck with rabies/fury druids. Little bit to skilled.
