attack rating 4 a non shifter melee druid.

i am currently working on a non shifter melee druid. i plan to use passion for the zeal and AR bonus, but my biggest concern at the moment is getting decent AR. i plan to use a SS as my shield, and therefore am going for max block. i figure that how ever the AR situation is going to work, it will be simaler to how a hunter would get his ar. any and all suggestions would be helpful.

yes my plan is to focus in elemental skills and summoning skills. the whole purpose of going melee without shifting is to take advantage of being able to cast elemental spells without having to reshift every time. i will load up on crushing blow and open wounds to make zeal effective. my goal is to hit a 6 fpa attack depending on the weapon i choose to make a passion out of, i estimate i will need around 50 off weapon IAS.

20 cyclone armor
20 tornado
20 hurricane
im not sure maxing the wind skills will be that effective, because i cant fully synergize them, if that is the case this tree might look a little something more like this
20 cyclone armor
1 nado
1 hurricane (simply for the freezing aura)

the rest of the skills will look like this
20 armageddon
10+ oak/how
1 in each summon

with roughly +4 skills from gear, armageddons dmg is increased greatly.
anyway this is a rough idea, i want to make it work though. input on skills as well as the AR problem are apperciated. also which spirit (a over asked question without an easy answer) but i have never used spirits on a non shifter, paticulary one thats melee.

dude anglics for the attack ratting with a HoW and your set I think. Life should be a pain so I would have a cta and spirit on switch.

Enchant charges from Demon Limb on switch.

Hsaurus belt+boots combo is a good way to boost AR if you are unwilling to trade out a ring and amulet for Angelics.
