Format is looking much better. Nice touch adding pics of the skills in action.

Not sure what you mean by "[the guide] will never have a complete end-game item list or other advanced player information." If you just mean there are too many good options to list them all, then maybe remove that sentence. Mention there are many end-game setups, list your favorite (and maybe a few alts if you can't decide) when you get to the end-game section, and call it good. Otherwise, it kinda reads like "I don't care enough about this to put in the effort to complete it, so gl hf." And I don't think that's what you mean (at least, I hope not).

I'll hold judgment until you're farther along in the guide, but it looks promising.

Edit:
Also, don't worry too much about pizazz right now. Get the basic info out there (early/mid/end-game, skillplans, gear, playstyle, Challenge/Uber strats, etc.), then build on that. It's like building a house; you want the foundation poured and the framing built before you start picking out curtains. :) Something to think about.

I read that as "I haven't actually played this build to the point of endgame, I've only done BRC"

You definitely get the wolf reanimates without being in werewolf form. My friend is playing it right next to me tree-morphed and is getting the reanimates. D2stats doesn't show the life after each kill from the Feed the Pack passive, however, so it's possible that you ONLY get the reanimates?

TW has its own life after kill passive anyways. But for the sake of skill mechanic exploration I guess.

the vids you showed are pretty old and it's kinda cheating to do starting uber bosses with endgame gear and charms.

I test it and it will not work unless in wolf form. The reanimates are still nice during the lower levels but later game it is not worth. In my opinion.

Oh boy, I remember somebody telling me to try bow druid. Laughing ghost with TU Viper bow has to be the funnest leveling experience ever.

I agree with the harsh criticism on this one. Most of the content is general information that is best left in the Introduction/Newbie guides. Gear section is elaborate commentary on very basic principles. 90% of this article could be copy/pasted into a amazon guide without anyone knowing it's from a druid guide.

Looks like you had fun in photoshop, but I'd rather have good ol' html markup with some juicy information. The effort is awesome, but it seems premature even as a WIP guide.
