I'm playing level 90 druid and I feel kinda stuck. I can run cows, but after like 200 those runs I rather uninstall than do it again. I can do pits in a5 VERY slowly, but i get 1 shot randomly so I wouldn't call it farming, also its not really worth time/effort. I've tried shapeshifter druid and fire caster druid, and so far both of the suck. What I am supposed to do? Any cow+ content deals untakable damage, so I have feeling its simply not playable without summoner... I can link screenshots of my gear if its needed.


Do I smell an MXL return?

had quite a few people, including you, recommend I play this mod while MXL slows down at midseason now. Still worth considering or game only playable with summoners and end gear?

Hey there! It sounds like physical damage is the biggest issue, resists and defense are super important in later content now. I'd like to see both your gear and stats, if you don't mind? The new defense system is very still "new" to everyone, including us, so it may need some tweaking.

Sure, phys damage is huge issue, and what is even worse, I have no real way to scale it. Somehow free 42% dr from feral rage doesn't seem to help much either. I could go for max block, but my damage will be equal to zero with 1 hand weapon at current state.

working towards better jewelery right now.

Be sure you use Rabies as a 1 point skill, it will lower their physical damage greatly. Also the biggest issue seems to be your Defense, defense gives you physical damage reduction. Have you considered getting a defiance mercenary from act 2?

Defense is a huge deal now, it is where the vast majority of people will get their physical resist. I'd give it a try and see how it feels.

It is 75%, correct! That drops from the Lich King, go into the burial grounds where Blood Raven is, go into the Plaguelands from there. After killing the bosses Stitches he will open a portal to the Frozen Throne, you fight him there.

Good, then we were doing everything right. I remember from stream, that Onions said that LK drops that belt, just got kinda confused by comment in the wiki. Thanks.

Started a week late, oh well... I thought I was a badass and started self-found barb but act bosses are a pain. Managed to get to Meph (btw Council members have waaay too much hp, I was immortal against them but killing took forever) and that's it.

I'll start a static field sorc and try to team up with people.
