That build works very well (I have the exact same). I put 1 into Poison Creeper, and 5 into Ravens, but that is highly unnecessary. I use Poison Creeper to stifle enemy healing and the Ravens to blind enemies and tie up groups.

After that, well, I think going into the shapeshifting side is good because you don't have to dedicate that many points to have an effective killer (as long as your weapon is pretty decent), whereas elemental depends on more points. However, it may be harder to obtain gear that helps both summoning and shapeshifting, unless you would solely rely on weapons to garner effectiveness of shapeshifting.

You do not need to max Spirit Wolf, since attack rating and defense are not very important when considering that Bears give damage and Dire Wolves give life. Also, maxing out Spirit Wolves would leave alot to want if you are going into the shapeshifting tree. As for a vine, it is purely personal preference.

That build works well...but each level after you've maxed wolves and grizzly I would alternate between putting points into poison creeper and HoW. Also as a summon druid I would recommend using an elite bow and massing dexterity and vitality to help your summons.

Good enough gear but I would drop the sojs and get 2 kathos instead. You do not need the mana but the life is golden.
