    For pvm the 68% faster cast rate cap is good enough, which he seems to be getting to (20+30+20). For pvp 99% is often suggested, but less is also doable.

    The earthshaker seems a bit more interesting to me due to the elemental skill bonus. It can allow you to save some skillpoints here and there which you can put in alternative skills like fire skills or summoning skills. That in turn can help you to deal with cold/physical immune creatures, which wind druids often struggle with.

    If you think you need resistance boost the wizard spike will be better, although of course you do have cyclone armor as a buffer there. If you have problems with mana the wizardspike will also be very nice.

    How about a cheap Compromise?? Suicide Branch.

    Res, Mana, Life, +Skill, FCR. This wand isn't given the proper respect.

    If a compromise just won't do it for you... For Overall effectiveness, has to be Wiz Spike.

    Wizzy all the way.
    I'm an avid hater of earthshaker and it's big and gayer counterpart.

    For a wind druid FCR is very important for casting tornados. Now if this were a fire druid then I would probably go with the earthshaker since FCR isn't as important.
