Is a fire or poison druid viable? Why is cold the most popular/best?

Post by Sedhrw on Tue Aug 20, 2013 7:33 pm

Title.

I'm only in act 4 hatred, but so far I like the fire and poison skills (ele+p avatar) a lot better than the cold skills. Banshee you can't aim and there's a long delay, and freezing gale or whatever it's called makes you immobile.

Of course I could always use all the elements, but mythal makes the elements irrelevant.

So why is banshee always the recommended skill?

Hunting Banshee/Plague Avatar druid is my favorite. Easy to do since neither has any synergies to worry about and 40% of your -% enemy resist needs are taken care of by mythral. You can even through so very beefy acid fiends into the mix. Now you have op cold, poison and decent phys damage to boot. Acid Fiends base damage is nice so they really benefit from +% summon damage.

I actually thought the same thing pretty much. Elemental / Banshee / Acid Fiends (rest Flash > Avatar) is the best imo. Druids don't really need to limit their elements since the elemental skills are all self-synergies, and you still have enough points for the Acid Fiend spec. Decently hard to MO all the -enemy res early on but that doesn't really matter. Elemental is the fastest screen clear from my experience, and with this set-up you can use pretty much any of the skills anyway.

Several buff elementalist that ultimative gave IIRC.

1. Hunting Banshee missiles synergies
2. Acid Trance Aura - Now effect all spell damage
3. Druid survivability improved
4. Tons of new stuff in late game


At least 3rd option is what I think that made druid become popular recently.
