I'm a big believer in not being "forced" in to a particular build from the start but with lone druid you obviously have to start with the bear before pointing spirit link

Idea: Lone druid and the Bear are practically two separate heroes.... wait... maybe they are two separate heroes?

But the question is... why can't I chose the bear and not druid first?

Maybe that's because they are suppose to be a pairing of bear and druid as a single hero pick...

What this would mean: Bear starts along side lone druid from the start

How do you make it work?

It's actually simple as hell...

The stats for the bear that starts along side lone druid:

Bear HP: 800
Bear HP Regen: 4
Bear Base Attack Time: 1.85
Bear Armor: 2
Bear Movement Speed: 320

It's all the obvious stats that the bear would have if he was scaled back a level....

Now change "summon spirit bear" to "summon greater spirit bear" because it is just simply always replacing the previous one....

This allows lone druid to play properly situational or by the aim of his philosophy from the start

If the bear feed from the start is a problem then change the bounty for the bear to

lvl 0 bounty - 60
1 - 120
2 - 180
3 - 240
4 - 300

The obvious problem with Lone druid though is that the bear does not share the neutral item slot with druid... but also with the option to overwrite the bears neutral item slot with a different item...

It would buff Lone Druid the wrong way.If this change happens, then he can pick one rune with the bear and pick the risk one with Savage Roar.I see where you coming from, but it is not like Lone Druid has many options anyway.

It would be like give Naga Siren Illusions the ability to pick runes.

What about allowing lone druid to cast his bear form on any other hero but have only half the duration for them as opposed to himself.

This would make more sense out of playing in the non-bear style as suggested by the alternative options in his talent tree....
