This past Thursday, I was at the local gaming center, so I decided to play D2. I made an "Earth and Sky" Summoner. When I was done, I had a Level 15 druid with 10 points in Raven, and 5 points in Poison Creeper. It worked out as well as Id hoped, and offered an interesting effect, with the monsters being attacked from the air (ravens), and from below (poison creeper). The poison creeper is slightly faster than the ravens, so It would get there first, poison the monsters, lay down the poison mats, and start tanking, while the ravens showed up seconds later to finish them off.
I really like the FireBird build idea. I might have to try that one out next. The problem I always had with Fissure (never tried volcano) is that the monsters would always walk away from it, but now If they are blind..... *devilish grin*
