in the arsenal, bow druid is decent at killing Samael, at least with BiS gear right?


The bow isn't that good for boss-killing. the proc is the powerful part of the weapon, so it's solely used for farming.

You can just type the item names in d2stats.

“Flameskin”
“Rodeo’s Tramplers”

Thanks for the guide, Wulf. You got a subscriber for sure. Great videos.
