The Rabid Hummoner? Good day to you all! I played D2LOD back in the 1.08 days & got moderately rich. In Jan. my brother talked me into playing again. Since I did so well with my Fury Druid in 1.08, I naturally returned to that subclass. I discovered the sins of my ways when I got to Hell :surprise: ! During one of my numerous NM Baal runs, I ran into a Wind Druid. While taking out Baal's minions together we chatted about the merits of Wind Druids and the nerfing of melee Druids. Well he hooked me and I started building one. Fenris' guide came out when I was about lvl 30 and that helped me a lot with figuring out my gear. Anyway I've got a successful 87 lvl Wind Druid in US East ladder and am looking for my next build. Well I looked at the skill trees and though the Summoner would be fun. :idea: Remembering my melee Druid lessons I looked for alternative damage and found Carrion Wind & Rabies that look like a good bet. So making a long story short I've read all the guides, followed the forum religiously for 3 months. Now I've got a 18th lvl Summoner and am looking for guidance on equipment & strategies for PvM maybe someday moving to PvP but don't bet on it. Current equipment is Sigon Set + Angelic Set (no armor) + 1 Cathan ring. Anyway: Main stat goals: Str: 86 (103 - 17 from my annihilus) Dex: 208 (225 - 17 from my annihilus) Vit: rest Enrg: 20 (base) Main skill goals: Raven: 5-10 ? Spirit: 10 Dire: 20 Bear: 20 Oak: 1 SoW: 20 WW: 1 Lycan: 1 Feral: 1 Rabies: 20 The Dex is for a Storm Shield (should I ever find one) but why not use this stat to equip a ranged weapon too. This way I've got ranged & summons most of the time but I've got a weapon switch & rabies for Phys Immune. A Reaper's Toll on a Might merc. will help a lot too. My skills allow this but what about the equipment! I've lost the link to the Hunter guide so I can't compare/contrast that equipment to the recommendations for the Rabies builds! I'm a mixture of poor & rich. I've been mfing with my Wind Druid for a while and am starting to find good stuff (I found an Ali Babba 2 days ago that brought my mf up to ~370 :winner: ). I don't have anything close to BotD, Enigma, or other super elite stuff. However, I do have eth shaftstop (on my Wind Druid's Merc), Reapers Toll (on my Wind Druid's merc), Griswold's armor, Wiz Spike, 1 SOJ, 1 Nagelring (29%!), 1 Annihilus (17 Stat, 14 resis, 8% exp), 1 Gheed's (38%!), Wind Hammer, all of Tal's but the ammie, plus a lot of other comparable stuff. Other than close friends I really haven't gotten into the Trade scene but I probably could trade up for better if I don't have anything close to the recommendations. Maybe I should start trading? Please let me know what your equip recommendations might be for this tri-subclass character might be!
