A thought about PvP bear

As we all know bears:
a) struggle for AR
b) maul barely chrges up in PvP, so it adds very little damage + stun
c) for stun(swirlies) bears do have shockwave

why not use maxed fireclaws(unsynergised) instead of maul?

a) it has almost twice the AR bonus
b) enemy can be stunned with shockwave anyway
c) you would lose out on a bit of damage, but oh well.. with +300% ed from werebear, bonuses from strength and probably forti, that +100% ed probably will be insignificient compared to the AR bonus the skill provides.

what do you think?

Problem is this

Your damage from FC is unaffected by + enhanced damage, and is aided from synergies and + skills gear

I think he is just going for enchancing his Psysical Weapon dmg and just use FC for the AR bonus it provides :azn:

I know what he was going for

but the problem is there isnt a good weapon for fireclaws that is also good for physical damage

Caddy reaches 5 frames. The speed of fireclaws seems to be the same as speed of maul, yet it offers higher AR bonus in cost of some +damage and stun.

@naturebunns - I don't want to use fireclaws for its fire damage - just for the AR bonus.
