    Default A Valiance Druid?

    Has anyone tried the classic Valiance 17/2/1 build as a druid? You'd be giving up a shield in favor of handwraps, but it seems like stunning fist, evasion, thief skills, etc would make for quite a survivable character. Or am I missing something?

    It's a cleric17/monk2/rogue1 "melee-capable survivalist" build:

    Obviously a cleric build wouldn't be completely transferable as is -- one would want to take natural fighting instead of TWF, for example. But it seems like much of the logic behind that build would work for a druid build, too?

    Valiance isn't nearly as good as it was though especially with monk splashes being nerfed and AC/PRR. Much easier to just ignore traps, if you're solo doing traps usually means less xp/minute and if you're in a group there'll usually be a more capable character.

    Stunning Fist is good but a lot of it's charm is the high effective DC from multiple proc chances from offhand attacks, you miss out on a lot of that in animal form requiring a higher DC for similar levels of effectiveness.
