The Rabies Druid primarily focuses on dealing Poison Damage and Damage Over Time (DOT). Which is great for being able to attack and move on to other targets adding a consistent flow of gameplay. This build hyper-specializes in farming The Secret Cow Level which has high density of monsters that are weak to Poison Damage. The combination of Rabies for Poison Damage and Feral Rage for Physical Damage with summon support, we are able to clear every pack! The build centers around maximizing the Shape Shifting Skill Tree with some support from the Summoning Skill Tree. The choice of summon support will largely dictate the direction that you take with your build. Oak Sage caters to players that want a massive Life pool. Heart of Wolverine is a better choice for those who want to maximize Physical Damage.
