skills, stat point distribution, pros and cons for the Diablo 2 Fire Druid build
The Fire Druid Build focuses on the fire skills from the Elemental skill tree. This Druid build is similar to the Wind Druid, but it’s not as popular due to the numerous Fire immune monsters in Hell difficulty. The Druid’s fire skills are probably the most visually impressive effects in Diablo 2.
Also, one version of the build uses a combination of Fissure and Dire Wolves. The wolves along with the mercenary are used to distract and damage the enemies, while the Druid casts Fissure. The Fissure skill does high constant damage for its level. In addition, this is a very effective way to kill act Bosses, as long as the Druid keeps summoning more wolves once they die.
Each of the fire spells has different advantages and weaknesses. You need to know when to use each skill if you want to bring these builds into Hell difficulty.
One common weakness of all the fire skills is that you can only cast them on the ground. This means that flying monsters are more difficult to target. However, the Molten Boulder skill can help you in these situations.
Another weak point of all the fire skills is that they have a delay when cast. This greatly reduces the utility of a faster cast rate.
The Fire Druid’s primary spells are the following:
Strength: Invest only as many points required by your endgame equipment.
Dexterity: Spend some points on this attribute so you can equip your best items.
Vitality: Invest the majority of your points in your life pool.
Energy: If you can’t deal with the mana issues at the early stages of the game, spend only a few points here. However, it’s recommended to avoid spending any points in your mana pool as you will overcome the mana problems at higher levels.
