Does Werebear suffer from attack rating problem compare to wolf?

I'm thinking about making a maul bear after finish my fury wolf. But seems without the wolf attacking bonus, I would have to invest much more into dex to counter it. Am I right on this? Or is there some hidden bonus to it?

If you're talking about a PvM Mauler, then no you won't have AR problems really. Maul + HoW and a fair amount of +AR items will be fine. Personally I've had no Dex PvM Bears, and I know plenty of people that have. So if you have the items, and the skills, you can do fine.

Yes it's a PvM one. But I was planing on use oak sage rather than HoW. I try to maintain a 90% to hit ratio, would this be posssible in late hell without HoW and not sacrifice strength/life to dex, and damage to +ar equiptment?

You don't need to go with Oak Sage.Werebear skill gives enough life and defence bonuses that with decent resists a little damage reduction and you will be completely safe.

Oak is sort of overdoing +% to life in my opinion. But if you want to use it, you can, and you can still have enough AR. +AR items really aren't sacrificing a lot because most of the items that are +AR would be what you would want as a Bear.

You don't really need that much life, and if you've got a good amount of defense you won't be getting hit much anyway. Not to mention if you're using Shockwave, you don't even get hit very often, but if you do, it's not hard to get life back with Hunger. I'd rather kill faster and more efficient than just have some more life.
 
I put dex in my bear but I'm not putting anymore. It's only about 60 dex ^^ Anyway, newb mistake but eh.
Maul + HoW and a few ar items should be fine.
If you're really lacking you can always whip out angelic rings/ammys.
