Diablo 2 Guide: Druid Rabies Wolf v1.10

PvP

Fury/Rabies Wolf The world of dueling is a harsh and unforgiving one. This is usually a world sparsely populated by druids. However, it is my opinion that if you are heart-set on building a PvP druid, this particular build will deliver the best results at the cheapest price. Fury/Rabies Wolves work well because they deal in two forms of damage (physical and poison), have very large life pools, and have the best faster hit recovery…

Diablo 2 Guide: Druid Fire/Summoner [SP/HC] V1.2

PvE

Introduction Hi all! I’ll start by telling you that this guide may seem incomplete to many folks. You won’t see technical stuff like break points, damage formulas, or scientific explanations of any sort. That’s not my thing. I am an experiential player, and this guide reflects a niche character I took to Guardian in my general style of play: single player solo, PvM full area clears, ALL monsters put to rest hardcore, untwinked (zero items…

Diablo 2 Guide: Druid Windmaster

PvE

Windmaster, druid build (1.10) Contents: – Introduction – Stat allocation – Skill allocation – Skill progression per level – Item section – Which mercenary you should use? – Hints and tips – Final words Introduction After beating the game with my wind druid, I thought that other people really should try this build, it’s fun to play.

Diablo 2 Guide: Flaming Mauler Druid

PvE

Why? Because the only thing worse than getting mauled in the face by a bear is getting mauled in the face by a bear with his paws on fire! THAT’S WHY! I thought I’d celebrate my 1000th post here at the SPF by posting a guide I’ve been working on. I finally went ahead and finished the game with the character I based the guide on, Smokey, and thought I’d finish this guide and post…

Diablo 2 Guide: Elemental Druid

PvE

Introduction A bit about my play style, I am a die hard challenge player and have been working on pure single tree builds. I do not MF at all in fact typically my builds contain very little MF. I hate losing characters that I work hard to build so I play softcore. This build is part of my character grail where I only twink between the grail characters and I only allow myself to use…

Diablo 2 Guide: The Witchwild Werewolf

PvE

1. Introduction I got the idea to this build when read this guide to a witchyzon. The guide itself is a little bit long and mathematical in my opinion, but the introduction was a great source on inspiration. I just had to test it with a shape-shifting druid. This is a guide to a dexbased druid and I know there are such already. But this guide is from a little bit different point of view….

Diablo 2 Guide: Druid Summoner

PvE

I. Introduction This guide is not of the typical cookie-cutter variety. I will not hold your hand and tell you exactly how many points to place in skills, where to level and what gear to wear at each stage of your progress. I am a big believer in tailoring a build to suit your particular tastes and play style. Playing someone else’s build can be enjoyable, but playing your own creation is infinitely more rewarding….
