**Character Intro and Overview [#b046df14]
This was the first character I had to beat Hell back in the R5D patch. This character started out early on as a Fire Druid, but I changed it around upon entering Hell after nearly tearing my hair out at the multitude of Fire Immunes. He turned out to be incredibly sturdy then, with Cyclone Armor absorbing 2000+ damage, Fade from the belt giving me DR% and near maxed resistances, and Decrepify from the ring giving me amazing safety. Tornado damage was near 7000, with Sandstorm about 4500, which gave me good killing power, even enough to take out Diablo Clone with ease after Decrepify kicked in.

Now, my equipment has pretty much been finalized - a ring was swapped out for a different oskill, forging, socketing, and D-Stoning has been done on all pieces. I have the Deviant Cell, Lothar's Will, and Unknown Hero unique charms that have not been touched yet, but they will eventually be modified.

**Equipment [#e34aeef7]
Helm:
I couldn't believe my luck when this rare fell on the ground in front of me. The resists and FCR were added through D-Stoning, but +2 Druid Skills and +3 Tornado to start just made my jaw drop straight off the bat. The extra to max resists is a small help too. Socketed with two tab-forged skill jewels, and forged with +1 Druid Skills.

Amulet:
The amulet is there for one simple reason - big +skills. An extra +8(!!) to my main skills helps tremendously, with the resistances and mana/mana regen just gravy.

Armor:
Switched out from a Zenith armor, Tasselhoff's armor is part of the full set I'm wearing. Mostly used for the set bonuses and gold find. Socketed with 3 Ra Runes.
&ref(http://seed.garden-op.net/sanctuary/es/pictures/larazon/Armor.JPG);
Weapon:
Switched out from my old Bone Wand, this baby has it all. Mana, +Skills, All Resistances, what more could you ask for? D-Stoned with +Wind Skill Damage.
&ref(http://seed.garden-op.net/sanctuary/es/pictures/larazon/Weapon.JPG);
Shield:
This was where my Elite Unique Stone from Anya went to. This is a great shield now, with incredible mods for a caster. FCR, big +Mana boost, +41% Maximum Mana, absorbs, and big resists made this my endgame shield for sure. Socketed with a tab-forged skill jewel.
&ref(http://seed.garden-op.net/sanctuary/es/pictures/larazon/Shield.JPG);
Gloves:
Switched out now from my Fireheart's Hand, Runefusion is the top pick for me. +5 to my Elemental Skills in total and a Life bonus makes this a big upgrade for me. Socketed with a tab-forged skill jewel.
&ref(http://seed.garden-op.net/sanctuary/es/pictures/larazon/Gloves.JPG);
Ring 1:
A big craft here. Major +skills, and Vitality and Mana bonuses. Just nice all around. Forged with +1 Elemental Skills, socketed with a tab-forged skill jewel.
&ref(http://seed.garden-op.net/sanctuary/es/pictures/larazon/Ring1.JPG);
Ring 2:
Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it. +2 Druid Skills, another +2 to Tornado, and oskill Amplify Damage. Absolutely beautiful. Forged with +1 Elemental Skills, socketed with a tab-forged skill jewel.
&ref(http://seed.garden-op.net/sanctuary/es/pictures/larazon/Ring2.JPG);
Belt:
What can I say. Tasselhoff's is just a good belt. Fade charges, more MF/GF, and two sockets for whatever I see fit. Socketed with 2 Ra Runes.
&ref(http://seed.garden-op.net/sanctuary/es/pictures/larazon/Belt.JPG);
Boots:
Finally made my upgrade to Tasselhoff's boots, completing the set. Tinkered with a little life, socketed with 2 Ra Runes.

Charms: Inventory nearly full of +Life/Mana charms, Deviant Cell Odd Charm, Yello Jello Large Charm, Lothar's Will Grand Charm, The Unknown Hero Grand Charm

- creating a chill dude lvl 82 winter fury doin 22K damage with cold mastery -- [[aniket]] &new{02-09-2008 (Sat) 08:49:57};
- best job very   -- [[freelove]] &new{01-29-2008 (Tue) 20:04:51};
- Heart of the Oak is perfect for wind druids, are you aware that you get more summons if you have zero hard points in raven and get all summons from staffmonds(large charms)? -- [[Goeido]] &new{01-12-2008 (Sat) 19:15:01};
- Ditto goeido!  The necklace, both rings and the helm are all absolutely wonderful.  Those are some huge skill bonus'! -- [[boobers]] &new{08-03-2007 (Fri) 16:47:25};
- I really wish that the Decrepify oskill was Amplify Damage, but you can't always get what you want, I suppose. I've been trying to get my hands on a Nu Rune for Insight, but haven't had any luck yet. I did manage to snatch up a Heart of the Oak Knout thanks to an Ohm decal I found, though. -- [[Nightfire]] &new{08-02-2007 (Thu) 22:45:17};
- great crafted jewelry! -- [[goeido]] &new{08-01-2007 (Wed) 10:31:20};
- Swap out the gloves with Runefusions- socket them, and stick in a +all skill jewels.  It's much better for a caster.  -- [[Will]] &new{07-30-2007 (Mon) 17:26:43};
