Pretty much anything that can perform "stunlocks". Builds like these are Bowzon, Lightning/Fire trapper, WW barb, WWsin, well even Bone Necro.

Re: what beats wind druid?

are any of the above completely untouchable by a windy though or are they just tough matchups?

There's nothing more pathetic than a crippled windy using tgods and wisp.

And you will need those vs. sins, no doubt.

Windy seems to have a slight if not more advantage over necros.
Bowers are a laugh, especially if you are block. Unless you are dummy enough to fall for minionkill multi followed by a strafe.
I've always thought block windy > bvc.

i dont see why really good bowers should be a laugh when all your minions die in 1 multi with pierce. then youre basically left with .. how much? 3.5k life? and ****ty block, fhr and fcr frames.
at least if you dont play a jokezon aka fulldex windies should be doable in gm duels.

A ww/trapper is a nearly impossible match up for a windy, assuming both parts know how to play their chars.

The stunlock is to much of a disadvantage for the druid, who cannot attack from outside the trap field nor easily venture inside it without getting locked and shredded.

Assuming the sin doesn't lame camp it'll be a constant attempt of escaping mb + traps before the sin teles in and wws, while hoping a random nado hits while the sin chases you. If you go offensive a stunlock will mostly be waiting.


That is my view on it in any case.

Lamer always told me zon>druid, dunno if it's 100% correct but it should be a pretty even match in either case.


@Dennis: druid>nec. It is true that good block druids can be hard for barbs in default setup, but with some lifeleech barbs will never lose. At worst you're looking at a stalemate if druid never shows up on screen so you can't namelock with widow hehe. Vs most druids barbs can just play predict/intercept teleww with default gear and win though.

Re: what beats wind druid?

Any Assassin. BvCs do very well. Windy > Bone Nec. Windy > Bowazon. I assume non block.

Characters I'm most afraid of when I use a Windy:

Assassins
BvCs
2H Chargers

Characters I'm somewhat afraid of, but will usually win against:

FB Sorcs
Zealot
Hammerdin

Re: what beats wind druid?

anything with stacked cold res and absorb with cbf...sicne without enigma windies are nearly worthless...very short attack range and no mobility...

there best feature is their wind armor which takes alot of elemental damage...

In GM duells i would say a bowzon>Windy.

Well, just about anything can beat a wind druid.
I would say a nice barb with lots of damage could wipe one out with just one single whirlwind. I've killed more than enough with my smiter/charger. Charge em' and smite em'. The hardest part is to catch up with them and lower their life since they have the oak. Trap sins can kill em fast too. Sorcs, pally's etc.
