Larazon - Druid

Character Intro and Overview

This was the first character I had to beat Hell 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 is near 7000, with Sandstorm about 4500, which gives me good killing power, even enough to take out Diablo Clone with ease after Decrepify kicks in. Pictures of his stats and equipment will follow soon.

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 a tab-forged skill jewel, and looking for another.
The amulet is there for one simple reason - big +skills. An extra +5 to my main skills helps tremendously, with the resistances and mana/mana regen just gravy.
Graciously donated by Zi, this is an excellent armor for this character. Big +4 to all skills, nice resists, amazing defense, and even a vitality bonus makes this second only to a good Insight.
Switched out from my old Bone Wand, this baby has it all. Mana, +Skills, All Resistances, what more could you ask for?
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.
Switched out now from my Fireheart's Hand, Runefusion is the top pick for me. +2 to my Elemental Skills in total, Life bonus, and a socket that I'm reserving for another tab-forged skill jewel makes this a big upgrade for me.
Ring 1:
A big craft here. Major +skills, and Vitality and Mana bonuses. Just nice all around.
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.
What can I say. Tasselhoff's is just a good belt. Fade charges, more MF/GF, and two sockets for whatever I see fit.
Could be better, could be worse. I don't really like most of the unique belts, and haven't found Tasselhoff's yet, so I tried my hand at crafting. These came out okay, but I'll eventually replace them once I make something better.

Charms: Inventory nearly full of +Life/Mana charms, Yello Jello Large Charm, Lothar's Will Grand Charm.

  • Ditto goeido! The necklace, both rings and the helm are all absolutely wonderful. Those are some huge skill bonus'! -- boobers? 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? 08-02-2007 (Thu) 22:45:17
  • great crafted jewelry! -- goeido 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? 07-30-2007 (Mon) 17:26:43
