What about a mana stacking druid or barb using Hammer of Jolhm or whatever it's called.
Using WW as a main skill and Sha'ad boots for 25% Arcane Torrent proc on melee attack.
While whirlwind isn't a great skill, it is considerably better in terms of how often is can "Attack"
I originally wanted to do this on a bear druid because he gets a massive IAS boost from local IAS weapons but if you go bear, you miss out on Pegan Rites.
- lvl 16 Arcane Torrent deals way to less damage - even with smaxing mana -it is for eye candy only.
- ngoisaoptv already made a great Druid around
Hammer of Jholm
Hammer of Jholm
Two-Hand Damage: 74 to 82
Required Level: 100
Required Strength: 1260
Item Level: 120

While Using Whirlwind:

Adds 3 - 5 Lightning Damage per 20 Attributes
+200% to Fire and Lightning Spell Damage
-1% to Enemy Fire and Lightning Resists per 60 Attributes
15% Chance to cast level 60 Cataclysm on Melee Attack
15% Chance to cast level 60 Nova on Melee Attack
120% Attack Speed
+50% Damage to Undead
+20 to Whirlwind
. Iirc you already checked it out. If not you can do it here
- If Whirlwind mechanic was not changed in median then only WIAS is important for frames. According to this
the 120 IAS on the Hammer is enough for max frames already.
Scroll of Enchantment: Weapon (4)
Scroll of Enchantment: Weapon
Cube with a Hammer to Add Bonus
10% Chance to Cast Level 1 Corrupted Vines on Death Blow
Maximum Life -5%
Slow Target +10%
is great to increase farming potential on Hammer of Jholm.
I already played around with Jholm Barb and tried some setups. I was not able to completely match the clearing speed of the Druid in fauzt but every other non Lab area is smooth.
I will def look into possibilities of spreading poison spells but I guess the dps and AoE of the available options is to low to be viable in any form.
