Best Gear for Summoner Druid in Diablo 2 Resurrected
Here is the recommended gear for the Summoner Druid Build.
For weapons, you have three options, namely, Beast, Call to Arms, and Spirit.
Beast will mainly improve your chances of crushing blows as well as open wounds. On the other hand, Call to Arms provides +1 to all skills, and Spirit provides +2 to all skills.
For shield, use either Spirit or Monarch. The former unlocks at Level 25 while the latter unlocks at Level 54. Use Spirit until you have unlocked Monarch.
For the helmet, you can go with either Jalal’s Mane or the Harlequin Crest. The latter has a better defense but unlocks much later in the game as compared to the former.
For armor, you want to go with Enigma due to its solid defense as well as the fact that it adds +2 to all skills.
Mara’s Kaleidoscope is your choice for amulet due to the fact that it adds +2 to all skills, improves all resistances, and gives a +5 boost to each of the attributes.
For your rings, go with The Stone of Jordan and Bul-Kathos’ Wedding Band.
Both will add +1 to all skills; however, Bul-Kathos’ Wedding Band is much beneficial in terms of stamina. Equip the Stone of Jordan earlier in the game until you have unlocked Bul-Kathos’ Wedding Band.
For Gloves, go with Trang-Oul’s Claws, especially due to its praiseworthy durability and defense.
For Boots, choose Sandstorm Trek Scarabshell boots, again, for their defense and durability.
Finally, for the belt, choose Arachnid Mesh Spiderweb Sash as it adds +1 to all skills and enhances your defense by 90-120%.
