So, I always wanted to make a Druid kind of character that uses wolves, vines and calls storms to kill enemies. That means either Squall or Lightning Bolt and Briar Ward for vines.
Briar ward has low health and takes too long to recast(maybe useful with Refresh). Lightning Bolt has good damage but doesn’t debuff. Squall has good debuffs but draws insane aggro…
Another problem is that I know I will run into some issues in Ultimate, by splitting my stats between Pets and myself, specially if I choose to use lightning bolt.
I’m also having a lot of trouble keeping my wolves alive against Aether/Chaos/Vitality damage types(18s CD also doesn’t help). Heart of the Oak aura helps with elemental resistance, but it seems that the only way to protect them against other damage types is by investing heavily into pet resistance devotions.
I was thinking about maxing Squall entire spell line and spend the rest in Wolves + HoTO + Briar Ward + Refresh, but using Squall is like putting a target on my back, and I’m very skeptical about BW viability in tough fights.
I just want the wolves to be alive enough to deal sustained DPS while I cast some storms. No need to have uber pet dmg, just viability.
My skills atm are:
Call of the Wild - 16/16 -Maul - 1/12 -Survival Instinct 1/12
Heart of the Oak - 6/12 -Permanence of Stone 1/10
Squall 6/12 - Hail 2/10
Lightning Bolt 10/16
