    Windy Druids WEAK?!

    Hello.
    My lvl 80 Druid (will lvl him to 90 or so) is suffering from great damage loss.

    I have Spider, Archon Nigma, HoTo, Jalal, Lidless, dual SoJs, and all the other common Windies wear. I only have couple 20 lifer scs, crappy Anni, and NO SKILLERS!

    My Tornado does a bit more than 4K, but I find this extremely weak against Zons / Sins / Barbs / Palys with Claw Block, Max DR%, Dodge, etc...

    I have to cast like MAD to bring one of those char down, and against WW Barbs I'm toast...

    My Lightning Sorc does 42K and she has much easier time against Zons / Sins because no matter how much they dodge / block I kill them 1, 2 hits.

    I just spent all my stuff buying 10x PnB GCs for my Bone Nec... If I traded them all for my Windy for Ele GCs would it be worth it?

    Are all Wind Druids generally weak that way?

    - Dennis

    lol yes you should post this in the druid form, but i will put my 2 cents in...

    skills:
    max:hurricane,wind armor (forgot name),twister,tornado....right?
    did you do that and put some points into oak sage, and bear? you want to tele ontop of them if they caster, and if they are ww barb, you just keep ur distance and cast tornados (or twister, which ever stronger one). but if they got enigma,,, ur screwwed i gues.

    EDIT: the 10x wind skiller gc's will help you a ton, they will add to your damage, and to ur wind armor.

    OH LOL I thought this was Druid Forum... sorry people... :mad:

    I decided I was too weak and went on an insane Ele GC Trade Rampage... somehow I couldn't stop myself and now I have 12X Ele GCs... :D

    I definitely kick people's ass now though.

    If you want to be as good as possible then yes ;) You could use spirit shield that would rock (didn't catch up if you're ladder or NL)

    Try using spirit wolves 5 of those really stuns togehter with ravens and hurricane.

    I think most wind druids goes like this:
    1 Artic
    20 Cyclone
    20 Twister
    20 Tornado
    20 Hurricane
    1 Raven
    20 Oak sage
    1 Spirit wolves

    :)
    PS: No wind druids don't suck... they pretty much own everything except barbs.

    Windies have NO CHANCE vs competent wwbarbs.
    With equal skill/gear the wwbarb will ALWAYS win.

    It doesn't matter if the windy has 50% dr, maxblock, 99% fhr/fcr & 7k life, good wwbarbs will still win.

    4k is enough to kill. but remember your only level 80 . you need level 94 for completetion with grizzly bear. just level and you'll see a drastic change in your damage. aim for about 5.5k rauths druid is perfect and has about 5k life and 5.8 damage. (perfect as in stat wise and level wise)

    tor: i really dont think youve dueled a good windy ~_~. you just cant compare your 13k fury to a minion stacked 6k nado windy. esp since they out life and out damage you.

    dont get me wrong. ive killed my share of good windies. but the outcome always ended up with them on top. (reminder that you helped me make a fury druid once which is pretty damn godly.;))

    I've duelled good legit baba's and those with 32020's and still won pretty often with my windy. I'm not saying i pwn them but it can be done, just dont try to tank them.

    Tor: I've never duelled a good WW dru (seen like 5 on Europe realm) so I dont know about that, but I think that the windy will come out on top.

    I think he states that windy will loose because windy needs to do the following:

    Get close, attack while minions stuns. Where the windy has high life and high damage and about 3 attacks per second. With a nice hit recovery.

    The wolf will by those means be in melee fight (close), will have a multiple attack, and in that way'll kill the minions. Will have higher life and higher damage than the druid. Will attack with something like 6 attacks per second I think, and with even better hit recovery.

    In that way you'd think the wolf would be supreme ;)

    I beat my friend's WW Barb yesterday with my Windy Druid.

    I'm so proud. :D

    Although he's not obsessed with "perfect" gear and is nowhere rich enough to be so, he does have some nice stuff such as 370% EBotDZ, 40/15 IAS Arreat's, Ber'ed SS, etc.

    All I did was sidestep his WW couple of times, watching out for when he tries to tele on me.

    Maybe I just won the duel because I blocked twice with my Lidless with 3% Chance to Block... or my recently earned Anni + 10 Ele GCs... who cares? I won! :thumbsup:

    Why anyone would Ber their SS if they have a perfect Verdungo, or use EBoTDZ for PvP is completely beyond my comprehension.

    Then again, I digress, since it's essentially useless to use SS against a Windy. 2x Ber CoA with Verdungo will take care of the DR so the Barb can dual wield Grief/Beast.
