I am on my second run through and decided to add a human druid to my usual party of Fighter, cleric, rogue, sorcerer, wizard. So far I am quite pleased with most of her abilities, at least those I have tried out. Only thing I do not like is her use of sling. I would really prefer use of some sort of bow. Arrows are very frequent pick-ups but stones for the sling seem rare and she keeps running out. Are there any suggestions or advice on how to handle this problem when I start another run through? Would an opening class of fighter help? Also, I have not really yet played around with some of the special druid abilities I have read about -- such as shape shifting and animal companion. What happens if the companion gets killed? Do you just summon another one? How about some other comments on things about druids that I haven't thought to ask about?
