    BOTD Thunder Maul??

    I been lookin around on this forum for a couple weeks now and despite getting some great info on other things, I still havent heard anything about my dream of a massave damaging BOTD Thundermaul with a Fury druid... is this just not a good idea? why not?
    I remember my good ol .09 Fury druid (RIP) with a cruel ogre maul of quickness, he did fine in hell... this seems like its the logical upgrade... iono help me out here!

    Welcome to the Forums here!!

    For PvM i dont see why BotD Thunder Maul isnt a good idea. It nice big damage and attack speed is reasonable - about 6 frames per attack. The only downfall is that you lose some resists and blocking by sacrificing the shield slot. If you can gather resists elsewhere then thats no problem.

    For PvP its a very bad idea because its too slow and you would get ripped apart without any block.

    Id say try it out for PvM, who is everyone else to keep you from what you want to do?

    Welcome

    If I remember well a cruel tmaul of quickness is faster but I am to lazy to look at calculator have a look at the top of the page. It is viable it just depends on how fast/slow you like your swings, many people cannot take anything slower then 5.
    As for shield in pvm not a great idea most of the time for a fury wolf.

    Use an ethereal thunder maul.

    It's not that slow for p v m. 6 frames is plenty fast.

    yeah, like all us other nonconformists ;)
    go for what you like... if you can handle a 6 frame fury, then go crazy and botd that maul!

    EDIT: Just looked at the damage of the maul... remember, a low min weapon can give you headaches sometimes... but dyam! that max is high as a kite...

    Yea BotD glorious axe seems very under rated. For druid its nice and quick (reaches 5 fpa fury) and pretty high damage - the worst you can get with an ethreal one is 405 - 837 so its not too shabby at all. Range of 3 is the only thing making it less appealing but with a fury druid who cares about range!!.

    I like range 5 of GP and it has other uses besides just a druid. If I get tired of druid I can re-make a Pole barb.
