    What's a fun/good druid?

    I want to make a druid.. one that's really fun to play with and can kill good in hell.

    I have played every other character except for assassin and druid.. and my one druid was a werewolf, and i screwed him up horribly. I don't think this time i want a werewolf one.

    Can someone gimme some ideas?

    Check the "PLEASE READ FIRST: Druid PvM and PvP Guides" sticky at the top of the forum first and then come back with more questions.

    This isn't a question about how to build, it's just asking for recommendations.
    Personally, I would recommend a wind druid, I find them fun to play. Pretty much any druid can be fun though.

    I find the funniest to play is a hunter .. but the fun only really last through norm and nm ... once you hit hell you wont be killing to fast in 8 player games.

    Besides that for pvm werewolfs and wind druids do the best in hell ... bears do good but they dont kill as fast since they dont have a multi targeting attack.

    But, imo, shockwave more than makes up for that. You don't have to worry about killing multiple enemies if they're all just standing around for 17 seconds.

    I still dont think you will kill them faster than a wolf though ... b/c you have to shock and then attack each one ... a wolf just has to click on one and the whole pack falls ... we are talking speed here not quality of play in that sentence.

    but you are right bears dont have a problem at all in pvm and are quite fun and can kill at a decent speed if played well ... i just picked the two builds that kill the fastest IMO and the ones i thought were funniest for pvm and listed them.

    But shockwave doesn't always work. ^_^

    Edit: Meaning like on bosses.

    My point is that shockwave owns 99% of pvm.

    With a bit of crushing blow you should be able to take down bosses fairly easily, since you aren't in danger of getting swarmed, which is what shockwave prevents. I've taken a wearbear using upd ribcracker and mediocre gear through hell with little trouble so just shh k thx.

    That's why shockwave isn't a primary attack skill. But taking out that 1% becomes alot easier when you can just ignore everything else on the screen.

    Hey, don't worry about offending someone's opinion of a skill. If everyone thought the same way about every skill, debates on this forum would be pretty boring.

    I've taken wolves through hell with a normal ribcracker.

    Of course that was 1.09. :)

    Although, for wolves, 1.10 hasn't changed much.

    Ok, i think i'm gonna make a werebear.. they sound like a lot of fun, but too bad they swing soooooooo slow, and this shockwave, will it be able to kill fast and so forth in hell?

    and does the werebear get extra life and that?

    Werebears have one of the fastest attacks in the game with the right gear.
