Circlet Vs Fcr rings on Windy druid

I'm remaking my windy for PvP only and I've got some questions I need answered:

What's best and why?;
Circlet with 2 dru, 20fcr and other stats or
2 Fcr rings with shako
Also what to socket the circlet or shako with

Which are the best legit boots? I've seen shadowdancers been suggested in other threads but in the stickied guide I'm reading eth treks.

spirit wolf/ dire wolves/ bear? I'm guessing spirit wolves only because of minion stacking?

vine?

what fhr bp should i aim for?

I know there's a stickied windy guide but it's as old as the sun so I don't really trust it before consulting fellow forumers.
It would be real nice If I got these questions answered soon, I'm itching for PvP :smiley:
Other gear:
hoto 40, eni dusk, ss, arach, trang gloves, eth treks 15 str, 2sojs, jalals(!), maras30, cta55 and spirit on switch, anni 191910, 7 plain sks (2 to come), 1919torch, 7 20l scs (3 to come)

Appreciate all help, comments and constructive critisism :flowers:

Not an expert on windy.

Id say stick with the shako until you find a nice pelt with 5 nado or something.
Socket them with what you need. shael if you need the fhr, um, prubie whatever suits you. I think shael is the best bet to hit the 48 fhr bp (or whatever it is).

Cant say about the boots. Shadows maybe if you have the str, treks are a solid choice too... Would go with treks.
Would go with spirit wolves. Cant say about how many extra points windys usually have but you save some by not going with grizzly.

Dunno about vines.

163/99 should be attainable with spirit shield, 99/48 maybe with storm.

Not sure at all about anything, since ive never made a windy... :rolleyes:

edit: Yay! Strategy compendium works again. Fhr bp is 42/63/99

99 should be attainable with spirit, 42 or 63 with storm, depending on gear.
99 fcr with storm, 163 with spirit should also be attainable somehow.

FCR rings + Pelt

Get some rings with +Str +random res +FCR so you can leave your strength at base to equip a low str nigma like Mageplate...

A circlet can't give you as much str as rings can...
hope it helps

I'll take Jalal over shako or druid circlet anyday. Only thing that will beat a jalal is a good pelt. It's also easier to get good stats on FCR rings than Druid circlet with FCR/str/dex/resist/etc.

Stick a shael into jalal and there's 50%FHR right there. Unless you're going for 163%FCR the circlet is pretty much unecessary.

Good pelts are teh expensive. Add life and 2 sockets to your list and try to get as many mods as possible.
