perf rainbow gems is okay, but keep in mind IED gives little dmg. at 5k dex, 5%IED results in only 120 fire dmg (+1 skill increase your spender,s fire dmg by around 140 fire dmg). so 6 IED gems in weapon is only 430 fire dmg at most. When you have 15k cascade dmg that's literally tickle dmg in comparison.

Rha runes are the superior choice for crafts and zephyr. (upgraded void-infused is req lvl 30, so you dont want to make it lvl 100 with sockets)

perf amber gems are good for grinding hard phys hitting places like fauzt/vizjun. the reanimate is the fast moving melee mosquitoes. they get a lot of the heat, so less things hit you, meaning youre less fhr'd. meaning more dmg output.

Well im sucks at describing shit with English so I wont make any guides. But I will try to help ppl who want to play bow druid as much as i can. Bow druid is OP if you have that Void bow, no matter if its upgrade or not cuz the proc on the bow is OP already.

I'm trying to min-max the bow druid without that bow but currently imtoo busy. We will see.

Back to the OP.

Perfect Rainbow ofc. The 18% IED bonus is just too good. With bow druid you will go full Abandoned craft instead of Trinity craft because of Survival Instinct.

For farming you need huge dmg for great killspeed, not more %hp since the build already has high HP without much invesment.

Thanks guys, useful replies. It seems it's P. Rainbow in bow and Rha in armour. Not so sure about the UMO.

I think these are a great low-level socket filler to use with Void-Infused in Labs where survival is key. Successful %all res lottos will help save MO space on your armor for level 14+ too. Probably the best choice for taking bow druid to late game.
