    Rift Fury Druid - is it viable?

    I was just spitballing some build ideas and I worked out this one, but I dont have much experience with druids so you'll have to tell me what you think about it :) Seems to fit well as a cold/physical build

    Main point: its a Fury WW druid using a Rift Caduceus, which gives CtC L21 FO and CtC L16 Tornado, which we synergize fully, giving us a nice AoE assault to complement the fast-hitting Fury.

    SPs:
    -Max Tornado synergies
    -Max Fury
    -Enough points in WW to hit the max IAS BP for Caducei
    -1 pt in Lycanthropy
    -Extras in...Oak Sage?

    Playstyle:
    Put up CA and Hurricane, shift, and Frenzy for 50-80 seconds until either Hurricane and/or WW wear off; repeat. Its not meant to be permanently shifted, but to shift in and out to take advantage of the elemental spells we're spending points in anyway.

    Gear:
    Rift Caduceus
    ??...Gear for safety, CB, -enemy cold res, and resists, since we cant augment our CtC with +skills or anything.

    What zrk said.

    If you want to play with synergized ctc stuff on Druids, Horizon's Tornado, Stormlash, or Earthshifter might be up your alley.

    You can get a 7 frame Fury with a 'Rift' Thresher and a lot of OIAS. If I remember right, that's no slower than Liq's Earth Shifter druid, so it should be viable if you really want to try. As far as using Hurricane, I can't really recommend that. :crazyeyes: It can get very annoying very quickly, especially because of cast delay.
