Rabies Druids' Dam?

Hello.

I was dueling this one Rabies Druid, and I just wanted to know how much a "normal" Rabies Dru does.

I was on my Lightning Sorc, and what he would do is run in, hit me ONCE, not twice, and then just tele out. Then I'd die immediately after that. My psn resi is maxed in hell with about 10 left over. How does poison kill me? Is it possible if the druid had Open Wound and such, do they kill? When he attacks me, around half of my sorc's life (1000) would go down, and then the rest would go down almost instantly after. JEEZ how much dam does he do?

I managed to kill him once by just aiming my lightning (38K) into his face by luck, and then found a real easy way to kill him by just spamming Charged Bolts at random direction he was in. His Cyclone Armor sucked huge.

Then he equipped a 4x LO shield 3x ORT helm and TGods / Dual Wisps (maybe one don't remember when he was bragging about his absorb gear), and then he'd own me again and again.

So I switched my CoH to this: (fighting fire with fire, sorb with sorb)

Venom Ward - Breast Plate
+15% to Maximum Poison Resist
Poison Length Reduced By 50%
+90% to Poison Resist
+2 to Light Radius
+60-100% Enhanced Defense

but he'd still ruin me by going face to face hitting me like at 5 fr.

Isn't a Rabies Druid all about poison...? How can Poison kill me... or was it his OW and stuff?

It seemed like he was wearing a Maul from what little time he was untransformed.

Anyone here have such a druid themselves?

You must be pretty slow at casting? Druid is able to run at you, infect you with rabies, unshift and tele away without you hitting him at close range?

I don't think just tele out works with a shifted drood.

Is that 7-8K HP attainable w/o the use of BO? Because he says to use a Fury/Rabies switch and he doesn't suggest using CtA, I think.

i have no idea how u get 66k. i looked at ur table and at lvl 43 and 105% poison added, i have no idea how u get that many skills with that much psn ed. these are the items u have right,

bramble (50%) (0 skill)
trang glv(25%) (0 skill)
jalas (5%) (2 all 2 to ss)
spirt mon(0%) (2 all)
plague bearer (5 to rabies)
druid ammy (3 to ss)
carrion ring
ravenfrost
dungos
aldur boots
10 to ss GCs
1 anni

that equals to 80% psn ed and a lvl 45 rabies. this actaully equals around 66 k. but u have a lvl 43 and 105% i dont no how u did that. can u tell me please. and how does negative resistance effect the psn damage. thanks

I think thats the switch anyway, imo a 30/30 phase is more effective than plague bearer, so 30/30 and 20/20 1 switch + botd zerker and SS on another. Im still amazed that he managed to get 8k life with 2xx vit :), must be 10x shapes 45 life and bottom row 3/20/20's.

I have 110% FCR breaking 100 or 105% bp for tele and 117% for Lightning.
