I agree, Bow Druid needs work. This thing where you cannot fire your "main" bow skill (e.g. Heartseeker, Cascade) more than once before you fire off the "Steady Shot" Level 1 bow skill yet AGAIN will make boss fights next to impossible
with this build. If you ever miss firing off the "enabling" skill (or just get lagged for a half-second, causing the game to think that you "forgot" to do it) then you will just sit there impotently, not attacking at all, as if you were AFK. This spells "certain death" in Median, especially later in the game.
The "Steady Shot" spell itself, BTW, does a little damage over a very wide area, so at least in early game it is not totally useless. I found it works pretty well with the "Thammuz" xbow Runeword due to the proc Rune of Fire which does seem to go off a lot due to the Steady Shot multi-hit property. (Andariel dropped very fast, but that was because I was careful to count out one Steady Shot for each Heartseeker firing.)
