Alright, retrying this fury/rabies idea Alright... so, I had my wolf rushed, started leveling him... and realized, after a quick test on single player, that I didn't like how I intended to build him. I'm running on nonladder, so options like grief, phoenix, fortitude and whatnot are all unquestionably out of the question. I'm thinking this guy would make a nice pvp'er, based on what I've heard. My key gear is : Fury Fanged Knife Carrion Wind FFK for the speed (it's quite decent), and Carrion for the poison creeper. Now, my problem is that it's been suggested that dex effects knife attacks, at least with a fury druid. This does seem to be the case, so.. here's my first question. What is the damage formula for a wolf with a knife? I was considering using CoH for his armor. There are just too many mods there that are nice to turn it down. On the other hand, Bramble could also be used. It'd relegate me to fighting melee chars most the time, but that's manageable. My other pvp char is mainly for casters, so I don't mind so much. From what I hear, Deadly Strike is the key to a FFK fury druid. Lance Guard has been recommended as a sheild, for it's 20% DS. So, my gear would then look like : FFK /w lance guard (Shael'ed) Jalals Dracul's grasp Gore Riders Armor - Bramble or CoH? Belt - no clue Highlord's wrath Carrion Wind 2nd ring - no clue This setup gives me a total of 100% deadly strike at level 85, fully geared at level 65, with the exception of Dracul's at 76. With Dracul's, I'd have 101 OW, as well. Skills : Maxed : Werewolf Lycanthropy Oak Sage Rabies Fury With this plan, I'd finish at level 90. Max lycanthropy first, followed by fury, then rabies, then split points evenly between Oak and WW. Any points beyond that go into feral rage. How does this look? I didn't much care for the build I had originally planned, but I figure it's worth taking another look at now that it's focus has changed. My questions are : Which armor should I wear? Should I get max block with lance guard? What is the damage formula for a knife-weilding wolf? Are there any changes that might be worth making? And finally, Has anyone built a char similar to this, and if so, how did it fare in pvp?
