Fury wolf vs. Phys. Immunes

I want to make a pure fury wolf, and was wondering if Bstar is enough to handle phys. immunes as an offhad weap. I also have glimmer and lacerator...would it be better to cast amp then switch to my heavy hitter, or try to get em with elemental dmg?

Even though Baranar's gives a decent amount of elemental damage it's not really that much, so it will be slow going but possible. Thankfully most Physical Immunes don't have a lot of hit points. You could also use Tiamat's Rebuke on switch which would further add elemental damage.

Amplify Damage can be use to break physical immunity, but remember that the monsters will still have a substantial physical resistance, and a few monsters can't be broken:(

I think that the elemental damage switch would be your best option.

I hate physical immunes.

The most popular switch since the start of time has been bstar with a tiamats as your switch weapon. Sheal the bstart to get a nice 5 frame fury. At times it is slow gowing but it does work. Lecerator would also work but is a slower weapon. Another option is to get a merc with a weapon that has % to cast decrap or amp. My merc uses a rare giant thresher with 290%+ ed and a 5% chance to cast amp (I think its 5%) and that also helps.

This may not be the BEST idea out there but making a passion runeword ( Dol + Ort + Eld + Lem) is fairly cheap to make and gives plus 1 to berzerk, ofc this means no extra fury damage or speed, and im not even sure you can use zerk in wereform, but it could work quite well.

As good as it sounds it is useless as you would have to deshift which means you lose all your dam, ar and other mods as a wolf or bear so your damage would suffer and your life would also suffer.

hey... didn't I respond to this thread?

sucks that my one useful post in this forum would get rolled back

I suggested azurewrath if sanctuary still breaks undead PI, didn't get confirmation if this was still the case

alot of the PI I've run into were undead

The Decreipify from Reaper's won't break all immunes, and some monsters will still have quite high physical resistance, even after they have been "broken"...but yes Reaper's is awesome!

gimmershred's/ tiamats is a great combo.
and if the enemy is REALLY scary you can unshift and throw axes at the n00bs

Only physical resist a reapers won't break is a stoneskin boss that is already physical immune or highly resistant to physical (usually gloams or death lords/vampires), or a possessed physical immune (they cant be cursed), I can safely say those are not very common, hell u can always run away from 1 monster :)
