    The PvM Arch-Shaman

    Fire-Physical-Cold Elemental druid. Anyone ever tried this? People say each skill won't do enough damage, but with major tweaking i can get very solid damage. And i will a fairly solid tank with good resistances, cyclone armor, lots of life with cta/sage, and fairly good defense with defiance merc.

    Skills:

    20 Tornado
    20 Fissure
    20 Hurricane
    15 Firestorm
    10 Cyclone Armor
    10 Volcano
    1 Molten Boulder
    1 Twister
    1 Oak Sage
    Total Points: 99 (build completed at level **)

    Gear:

    Weapon: HotO // 6 BO CtA
    Armor: Ormus' Robes w/5/5Fire
    Shield: Spirit Monarch
    Helm: Ravenlore w/Um w/5/5Fire
    Gloves: Magefists
    Boots: Marrowwalks (for the odd bone prison to keep monster contained)
    Belt: Arachnids
    Ring: SoJ
    Ring: SoJ
    Ammy: Mara's

    Anni, Dtorch, 7 Ele GCs, 20 life/5 rs all SCs

    Act 2 Defiance Merc:
    Weapon: Infinity GPA
    Armor: Bramble?
    Helm: Vamp Gaze

    This setup gives me at level ** when the build is done:

    -3536-3714 Tornado Damage
    -3765-3935 Fissure Damage
    -1933-2017 Hurricane Damage
    -112 FCR for 99% BP

    IMO a windy is better but yours is more... original(?)

    I tried a dual element druid but it was to much hadeack trying to keep armaghedon and hurricane active and each did too little damage.

    good luck

    well ya, i could make a godly windy druid but that doesnt really float my boat.

    and against PIs, if i was pure windy, i'd only have hurricane, which wouldnt do much damage.

    And its fun being commander of all the elements. Just the thought of a hurricane, tornados, and fissures in the ground.


    Has anyone ever tried to use twister as a main attack skill. At level 45 with both synergies maxed, it would do 1265-1347 damage with 3 'nados and stunning for .4 seconds.

    also, does amp damage work with tornado/twister?

    Yeah Amplify Damage and Decrepify will increase your physical damage. You might want to read Uzziah's Dual Elemental Druid guide http://strategy.diabloii.net/news.php?id=579#Introduction

    He used the 1.10 'charge bug' from Stone, which doesn't work anymore, but still a lot of useful and relevant info.
