    So that was it awesome right ^^.

    So some explanations before people ask us questions.

    Helf-elf - The reason we went with the rogue dili is becsaue we have been researching and it seems to be that the sneak attack bonus stacks. If this is no longer the case then please let us know and........ well we buggered cause we have already made the guy.

    Feats: we weren't 100% about order of things. We have used the shield Mastery line for the doublestrike increase.

    And we were gonna use the free feat swap at about level 6 to change Augment Summoning to Power Attack.

    Enhancements: They might be a bit of a mess. we decided on things and realized they hey could be taken sooner but we were to lazy to change all of it ^^ But they can be reset with no problems. The basic idea is the same and its the take the Druid Nature Warrior line at lvl 6 and 12 when they become available.

    Any comments then please feel free. We fully expect the rage to come from those professorial druids claiming how much we have abused and violated the druid, but hey that is what the forums are for.

    CIAO

    PS. Is there a way to change the font color? reli dont want it to be white text on white background

    I'm new to this myself so I'll give it my best shot based off of what I was told and what I read.

    That's actually a fairly standard pure druid melee build. Which is shockingly rare -- there seem to be more drunks than druids. Rather annoying.

    You might want to actually consider going more wisdom based than strength based, simply because of the special attacks you get. Higher wisdom increases their DC, and they have useful effects, not to mention you will probably be wanting to use spells like Earthquake to help you when fighting in close quarters. The difference between a caster druid and a melee druid (pure) is mostly the feats and gear.

    I would suggest reaving roar instead of or in addition to fatal harrier. Reaving Roar gives you a chance based on the level of your enemy related to your level to effectively blow up any nearby enemies when you kill one. Useful even into end-game.

    I hate to say this, but you may want to drop Augment Summoning to focus on other feats. While your pets and summons are useful while levelling up, summons aren't useful for their ability to survive, but more so their ability to attract enemy aggro by merely existing. And while your wolf is useful, you get much more gain out of taking another feat for yourself than you would otherwise.

    I say that I hate to say it because I love summons and I wish augment summoning wasn't so hated.

    Thank you very much you have just won me £20. I said we did ok and my friend said we would get flamed from the get go

    We didn't know that wisdom was the most important. We thought we hit things we need strength ^^. So we will use the free reincarnation later on to fix this.

    As for the feat we were gonna swap it out at level 6 for power attack because its nice to have it when leveling the first type of quests.
