Bear Druid- A guide for 1.13c Ok, by the title you might think, "Damn, another slow hitter but heavy hitter," but it's acutally quite fast. Keep in mind, I'm not a "Guide Maker" and I'll propably make a few mistakes but if I do please correct me. Table of Contents: I-Skills II-Gear II.a-No block?! II.b-fhr is how important? III-Stats IV-Merc V-A few tactics I use VI-Ending I: Skills 1-Raven 1-Oak Sage 1-Spirit Wolf 20-Dire Wolf (hp for your bear) 20-Grizzly (Your sidekick) 1-Werewolf 1-20-Lycanthropy (Depends on if you like hp or dmg) 20-Werebear (Your regular form) 20-Maul (Your Main attack) 1-x-Shockwave (Optional, I don't use at all[Keep in mind most people like this skill]) The rest you could put into another spirit or something. Doesn't matter too much. II:Gear This is the fun part of the build. You can change a few things to your liking. Physical Damage Gear: Wep: Windhammer w/ 15%@/15% IAS jewel/Shael/Hel-60% IAS, 50% CB Helm: Jalal's w/ Um-Jalal's is best helm for Druids ever?! Armor: Arkaine's Valor w/ Um-+2 skills, Vitality, and str req isn't too bad compared to Windhammer Gloves: Drac's-what else? Belt: Verdungo's or SoE-leech or vit which is more important to you? Boots: Gores Rings: Raven/Dual Leech Ammy: Metalgrid (best in my opinion)/Highlord's/Mara's Switch: CTA + Spirit Charms: Anni/Hellfire, Skillers either Spiritual or Trainer's take your pick, sc's of vit, and 3 or more 5%@ scs. fhr charms PVM "Friendly" Gear: Wep: IK Stone Crusher-2 sockets, elemental damage, and 60% IAS, CB, AND indestructable (A problem with Windhammer) Helm: Jalal's-You can't deny the power of Jalal Armor: IK Soul Cage-Enchant ctc is nice, and res after set effects Gloves: IK Forge-some stats, IAS, 10% Leeches Belt: IK Detail-lil res, some stats, fhr, and 20% pdr Boots: IK Stone Pillar-ar, life, fr/w, mf Rings: Raven/Raven/Sorb Ammy: Metalgrid/Highlord's/Mara's Switch: CTA+Spirit Charms: +dmg charms, +ar, +life, fhr charms Poor Man's Gear: (Currently editing, I don't have the time to post right now) With a 22% maras I have 67% res all in Hell, if it were perfect, I would have 75%. Keep that in mind. That is WITHOUT 5% scs. II.a:No Block?! Well, the reason for this is simple, your block speed, while okish, isn't going to be a HUGE topic upon your bear. You will have PLENTY of life to not care about blocking, and besides, it could keep you in a block to stop you from keeping maul up, that and it eats away at your life... Despite what it does for other chars. II.b:Fhr is how important? VERY, you are melee, if you get a stun block, say goodbye to life. You'll think this build is pathetic if you got stun blocked. III: Stats You shouldn't need too much help but, Str: Enough Dex: None (Gear doesn't require) Vit: As much as you can afford Ene: None I like Anni+Torches to help me here. If you are pure sp then that is not going to help you. IV: Merc Here you have a few options, either Act II with Might/HF aura or Act I cold arrow. Act I: (best for IAS) Wep: Faith Armor: Shaftstop Helm: Vampgaze (She doesn't have too much hp, gotta keep her around) Act II: Might/HF Wep: Pride/Reaper's (whichever you like most) Armor: Shaftstop Helm: Vampgaze Now I chose Act I for IAS (as stated) But the more damaging way is Act II merc. I find attack speed better than damage with this build. V: Tactics I like to keep my maul going no matter the cost. It's more damage, ar, and stun without using Shockwave. PI's are a PAIN but killable. Just beware with 4 or higher players or /p4 or higher. They can drain you BAD. If you find an unique Gloam pack with mana burn and PI just Save and Exit, there is no point in fighting you WILL die. VI: Ending Well, this is it. If you have any suggestions, critisicm, or anything else please post. I do appreciate you reading/commenting so hopefully this can be an "official" guide. If I have made anything that you want more elaboration on just say so and I'll help you out. Note: If I miss anything or disregard your post it's because I'm not on 24/7 and I'm only on for a few mins. Please inform me if I forgot or put something in that is untrue.
