depending on your weapon choises by far. i think base damage vise spore shot maxed is better than laughing ghost. i wouldn't use other than laughing ghost until i would get some good on striking procs on my items / have spore and cascade almost full level

Is this guide still being worked on? I'm sure a lot of people would like to see this one carried out.

I attempted a Bow Druid 2 months ago, and I found all his bow skills to be very good in crowded areas but very poor at strong single targets :( Don't know how to improve it.

Same here ... I only depend right now on a strong merc and use nova shot at very close range for maximum efficiency. BTW what kind of bow are you guys using through terror/early destruction? I am usimg HIVE runeworld in recurve bow (6).
