There is a thread in PvP which shows how having somewhere over 7k defense affects the to hit % in such a way that your opponent should benefit more from using anglics to preserve hit ratios on you. So, basically you would need to use fortitude, and have decent defense gear to get there. However, the sacrifices you might make to get from 6800 defense to 7500 defense seem negligible.

Actly no a werewolf cannot get a high def ratting inless they use metal grids, fort, and a high lvl shout from a barb. I have been able to get just over 20k def with that. Basicly think of your normal cookie cutter set up for werewolfs. And replace your high lords with a metal grids.

Even after saying that I do not feel that having a high amount of def with a werewolf is needed to be effective in player vs player.
 
Werebears on the other hand can hit 20k defense fairly easily with decent gear, considering the chilling armor adds with the werebear skill. But yeah, for the most part don't even worry about defense on your wolf.

I remember me having 1329 defence or so with my wolf. So close to being 1337. And THAT would have been cool. :laugh:

Yeah, you should be fine. My 49 Fury/Rabies only hits 800 def and still wins a good amount of duels.

1337 = LEET = elite. Used to express often in reality non-existant superiority.

I have almost 8k on my fury druid, and a little over 8k when i use 09 stromshield, there is definetly an improvement from 1k or w/e.
But then again as far as I understand no one on these forums melee duels, so wtf do you need defence for?

How did you achieved so much defence? If it is a titan, then I guess main thing is a fort in sacred armor, but I can't get the rest of it?

I know this is a topic about defence, but why would fury wolf (especially a titan) use jalals in melee? Aren't Guillaume's Face and Cerebus much better in almost every way
 
technically yes.

you wont have a good ratio on life/damage/fhr breakpoints with 8k+ defense though - guils will give you less life and defense, cerebrus less damage but more ar. jalals is an all around pelt, one you can use in an all around melee game without having to swap before every other opponent.

I'm not a titan, and i use fortitude archon, all my defence comes from perfectly upped jalals, gores perfect dungoes perfect steelrends and well perfect everything
And jalals is hands down the best fury druid helm, 30% fhr 20st = 20%damage +4 to skills is another 70%ed you have plenty of ar without cerebus, nothign beats jalals.

Perfect Jalals is awesome, that's what I have, but I do break out a shael'd Cerebus against smiters and I do notice the difference in AR.
