    Wind Druid worth it ?

    Okey i made a wind druid and tried to make it kickass and well he does kickass
    in 1 player game but as soon as its 2 or more players in .. he isnt much to brag about :) so i wanna know if its worth it buying all the skillers and CTA and stuff like that for him .. and what do u do with your wind druid ?

    Wind druids are among the more versatile characters. A well equipped one does very well even in 8player games.
    Skillers is very useful, but first make sure you have good +skill equip too.
    Check the guide thread for winddruid info, there should be equipment suggestions on how to reach best results.

    Wind druids are good at pvm, and also make excellent duellers if played right. The only thing they are somewhat slow at is killing bosses (such as Baal)

    Personally I am looking at building a Wind/Ranger Druid. Using Tornado [mainly] and Crossbow. There are some *really* runewords [mostly ladder only - unfortunately] that just call out to be used by this build.

    my equipment is very similiar and I kill perfectly fine. I don't know why you're having so much problems.
    Maybe you're too use to 25k+ sorc attacks.

    If you're so worried about boss killing speed, either:

    - use a cookie-cutter boss runner instead (Sorc/Hammerdin/etc.)
    - hire a Merc and give him some Crushing Blow

    first of all... shako sucks *** compared to jalals or raven lore (both GREAT druid helms) and also get a merc and use it for crushing blow.. it really helps.

    my bad if i reapeated i dont usually read other posts

    You shouldn't complain with that gear setup on a windy.

    Windy is one of the best all around PvM/PvP char atm, and that gear setup is an excellent fit.

    With the exception of helm and rings, we are geared alike. Currently though, i am using a dual ist'd baba and wartravs. with my enigma and a few sc, gheeds running around 330 mf on him for killing hell bosses. He does fine, not as fast as with Hoto, but well enough.
