    Wind Shaman?

    Has anyone ever thought about a wind shaman build??? Would this be viable for duels and effecient??
    1 Arctic Blast
    20 Cyclone
    20 Twister
    20 Tornado
    20 Hurricane
    1 Oak Sage
    1 HoW
    1 Raven
    1 Spirit Wolves
    1 DWs
    20 Grizzly

    Essentially its an ele / summoner, with cyclone for ele sorb, but less life than pure wind, with the bear though, making bearoports work---> possibly because of the limited spells that allow you to trick you're opponent is this build a failure?

    I've been thinking about this for a while now, I might try something like:
    20 Cyclone
    20 Tornado
    20 Hurricane
    20 Grizzly
    10 Oak Sage
    10 Dire Wolves

    And the pre reqs. On paper, at least, it seems like it should work. Anyone tried anything like this yet?

    meh, I mean since my gear focuses on the 163 fcr break, it would make more sense to go wind/bear right?? I think i'll give it a try, the only thing that's to lose is time really...

    Why?

    you're sacrificing a crap ton of life for another physical attack that:

    A) Is AR Dependent
    B) Is Blockable
    C) Isn't nearly as effective as Tornado

    Fire Shamans work because they're main source of damage can be sorbed to non existence, so another type of damage is needed. However, with a Windy, you'll just be sacrificing life for something that'd do essentially the same for you at one point instead of twenty.

    The main problem I think I'm going to have is AR on the bear, but I'm going to play around with oak/how and see what I can get. I'm kind of curious as to Next Delay penalty with the Bear and Tornado at close range, though. If it fails, it fails, it's not the end of the world...well maybe it is, but I'm a Nihilist. :cool:

    Oh and btw, this is the main reason why I want to try this build:

    that is one sexy hat. if your build fails you'll be able to remake as a pure windy and save that point in griz.

    Wow, that's godly pelt. Yeah, I think I'm just going to go with a windy NL but I'll make a Shaman Ladder
