    BEAST Runeword Question

    Im thinking of making a BEAST zerker axe for my WB Fireclaw druid. The question i have is this: BEAST comes with +3 to Lycanthropy and +3 to Werebear. Will these +3 to skills stack with my existing skills??? For example, if i have 4 to WB and 4 to Lycan will the BEAST make them both 7's?

    Thanks in advance

    BTW...Ive been tinkering around with different 1 handed weapons. Ive tried LS with Amn, Aldurs weapon with 3x Shael, and Phase Blade with 6x Shael. Would it be worth my effort to make the BEAST, or should i use the runes i have to make a Chains of Honor Armor??

    Yes the Beast bonuses will go straight to your skills

    Not sure of you're build, but I think that if you have the stuff to make CoH you should because there are decent mid-price weapons, while I think CoH is a league above most other armors

    As for my build, Im a Fireclaws WereBear. Ive maxed FC, Fissure, Volcano, and working on maxing Firestorm. I also have a point in Oak Sage. Im a lvl 73 and my current gear is as follows:

    Jalals with open socket
    1650 Def. Stone Wire Fleece
    String of Ears Demonhide Sash
    46% MF War Travellers
    Lavagouts
    RavenFrost Ring
    Dwarf Star Ring
    Cats Eye Amulet

    1 hand weapon is usually a 3 x Shaeled Aldurs Jagged Star, but as I said before Im testing a Lightsabre socketed with Amn and a 6 x Shaeled Phase Blade (120% IAS....very nice....might be faster than Fury!). When I use the 1 handed, I carry a Stormshield with a perfect diamond in it.

    My 2 hand weapon right now is the Buriza. Nice IAS and cold damage for those monsters that are Fire Immune.

    i think beast is a VERY underrated weapon... 240 ED + lvl 9 FANAT = over 400 ED with SICK IAS

    however.. i do not think beast is a good rune word for shifters. fanat Aura does not increase wereform IAS at all. I think that it still not a "fast" weapon in a wereform durid build.

    a BOTD warspike on the other hand is the fastest weapon and power for the werewolf. you get that last frame rate with it.

    i think that you should use a azurewraith (if you cant get BOTD warspike) and make chains... I think that chains is also a lote more tradeable too...

    anyways.. b4 you do what i say... go play with some numbers in the wereform IAS calculator... so you can see.

    thnx

    Do minions get the full bonus from fanat aura or just the party bonus?

    Also, I thought the fanat aura had no effect on shapeshifted attack speeds.
