Druid Helmet.

Druid Helmet.

My thoughts for a helmet were Jalal's Mane.

Some choices for FCR were a Druid Pelt.

The guide on this site said Shako.

Which helmet should I use? Wind Druid.

I heard the breakpoint for a Druid is 99% FCR. I have a 33% FCR Spirit, I will have two 10% FCR rings, 20% FCR Arachnid Mesh, and 40% FCR HOTO. Does that mean I won't need more FCR?

Or... I don't know much about FCR breakpoints. Should I still go for high FCR?

I believe the FCR BPs are 99% and 163%...

With you setup you have 113% so you can get rid of one of the FCR rings in place of a SOJ or BK Ring.

Jalal's Mane and Shako are both good standard druid helms.

Circlets are ideal... Look for FCR,Resists,Skills,Strength,Life,etc...

Fast cast rate will only spawn on circlet class helms, i'm sure you meant to say that.
Yeah I have seen one Druid Pelt, even though all Druid based helmets are called Pelts. I thought it had FCR on it.

So then, should I not need more FCR when I reach 99%.

For PvM, 99% FCR is ideal. Going higher than that could mean that you sacrifice killing power, and unless you are uber rich, sticking with 99% FCR is more than sufficient.

I went with the Shako in the end, mainly for the +mana, since you'll be spamming Tornadoes at 11 frames per cast at 99% FCR. Of course, the +life and MF on Shako is nice too. Even if you use Insight, I would still consider the Shako for the MF and + life.

Although Jalal's has some nice resist, so long as you make a habit of keeping your Cyclone Armour up, you can get away with sub-par resists.

Consider a HotO, Magefist/Trang gloves, Arach, and 2x 10% FCR rings for a total of 100% FCR. That frees your shield up for Stormshield, if you prefer to go max block.

hoto, 35 spirit, arach, and magefist put you at 115% fcr. lose the fcr rings and get two sojs. that's just me tho.

For MF'ing, a pTopaz/Ist.

If you don't have a source of CBF, and hate to be frozen, Cham.

If you need PDR%, Ber.

For PvM, you don't need FHR, but if you want it, Shael.

For all resists, Um.

For a specific resist, like lightning, Ort.

Lastly, a nice rare jewel is also an option.

Damage reduction > 2 More Skills. Plus, one of my rings is 10% FCR, 20 to Strength, and 7 all Resists.

As for the helmet, what would be best for PvP. Cham wouldn't be needed.
