    Recently made a Windy Druid

    Working out pretty well - Resists are really my only problem. Those and fhr.

    My question is, which is better?

    Wiz + Bk

    Hoto + Fcr Ring


    Your two cents? Leaning towards wiz/bk but yea :/.

    Re: Recently made a Windy Druid

    you pvm corect? I don't think hoto or bk will help you as much as wiz spike + a fcr ring with resistances and stats on it. 99 fcr will help you blow through thee game doing key runs and such. You use stormshield no? Max block storm shield is pretty much the end of any chance of a monster killing you if you got 99% fcr lol...

    If you are low on resists just spam cyclone armor a lot, resists aren't really needed for pvm.
    well i guess that just went against my own advice lol... TRY BOTH!

    Re: Recently made a Windy Druid

    you should have hoto + storm shield and shadow dancers and you figure out the rest as long as you hit 99 fcr and 99 fhr when wearing this gear for dueling zons and barbs and melee and chargers...
    You should make the 150 somethin breakpoint (can't remeber look it up) with wiz spike and spirit and some fhr tri res boots when dueling casters.. oh eyah and 99 fhr too...

    Re: Recently made a Windy Druid

    Ok, I'm on the market for 13x fhr scs to hit the 99 bp and a pair of Shadowdancers. I added everything up on my gear (fcr-wise) and with only helmet, boots and armor not providing fcr - I hit 155 fcr. The bp is 163 iirc.

    Gear for 163:

    Wiz
    Spirit
    2/3/1os Pelt
    10fcr ammy
    2x fcr rings - with str
    Arach's
    Mages
    Treks

    Re: Recently made a Windy Druid

    Don't use that many scs, try shaeling your pelt or actualy i hate to break it to you but if your pelt has nothing but +5 nado then jalals is gonna be your best bet, shael that b.

    I only have 2 gcs, so the scs arn't taking up space. The pelt is Um'ed for the res, and isn't gg but beats out Jalal's.

    Re: Recently made a Windy Druid

    no.
    Jalals beats any pelt that doesn't have 2 sockets or all the good mods (10 fhr, resistance, life, nado) and it ties that kind of pelt pretty much. Of course it's hard to compare because they are pretty different, depends on your build.

    Really jalals is a gg helm.

    Re: Recently made a Windy Druid

    I tried it, more res and fhr, I decided it was worth the loss in damage.

    Here's my setup:

    163/99:

    Wiz
    Nigma
    Jalal's
    10fcr Druid Crafted Ammy
    2x Str/res Fcr rings
    25 fcr spirit mon (getting a 35 sometime soon)
    Dancers
    Arachs
    Mages

    My problem:

    Even WITH 35 fcr spirit mon, I miss the bp by eight, any ideas on how to bump myself to the bp besides a circlet?

    99/99:

    Same as above, but Hoto/SS instead, as well as one fcr ring switched to a Bk.

    get a 18+ fcr amulet, not hard to find one, but if good stats, they can cost you an arm or two :tongue:

    and generally a 2/20/2 Magic helm will reach you that too...or a rare copy.

    Re: Recently made a Windy Druid

    amulets got all the way to 20 fcr.
    most of the time you want to socket with 2 shaels or 2 7fhr 15 res jewels or really godly rare jewels, mabee p rubies.

    Re: Recently made a Windy Druid

    Ok now. One last question - hopefully

    My damage with 99/99 is 4.5k-4.7k with 2 gcs.

    With 163/99 I believe it's 4.4k-4.6k, again with 2 gcs. If I got 7 more, what should I aim for?

    Re: Recently made a Windy Druid

    it's not bad, breaking 6k is godly, probobly need that nado pelt and such, forgot about that lol. i think you will do pretty good with it. Don't forget, you should test all the options out for your self and decide which is best for your play style.

    Re: Recently made a Windy Druid

    Would 5.7k~ be good? I can get that, I believe, with Hoto as my weap for the +3 skills, along with 3 more from the Gcs.

    Re: Recently made a Windy Druid

    It seems, instead of 5.7k, I'll be hitting 6.5k~ using a circlet at 163/99. No dr though :(.
