Help me out, Fireclaw Bear with Phoenix. So, I was planning to make a FireClaw bear. The whole build is going to be built up around the wonderful runeword Phoenix. Runeword is as follows: 100% Chance To Cast level 40 Blaze When You Level-up 40% Chance To Cast Level 22 Firestorm On Striking Level 13 Redemption Aura When Equipped +350-400% Enhanced Damage (varies) -28% To Enemy Fire Resistance +350-400 Defense Vs. Missile (varies) +50 To Life +5% To Maximum Lightning Resist +10% To Maximum Fire Resist +15-21 Fire Absorb (varies) So, why this phoenix-thing? Well, first of all. Fire Claws get synergies from Firestorm, Moulten Boulder, Fissure and Volcano. Phoenix has 40 (!)% chance to cast lvl22 firestorm on striking. Firestorm is synergized by Molten Boulder and Fissure. Thus, with a 6shael pb giving an insane attackspeed, that fissure would pretty much trigger all the time, with a nice effect as result. Also, fully synergized means it would actually hurt. This Bear is meant for PvM btw. Now, what I was thinking to do was to max out FireClaws, Molten Boulder, Fissure and one of the remaining two synergies to Fireclaws. I would put at least one point in Werebear (else i will never look like one). Not sure if i should put more, since it adds def and damage, and damage isnt really what i need. One point in Werewolf as prereq for Lycantrophy, and then eventually max Lycantrophy. I suppose one point in Oak would be smart too. What I first wonder is, how would this skill allocation be? Firedamage will probably be high enough, life will be high too. And my opinion is that Cyclone armor wouldnt be any useful if no major investment in synergies... Equipment that i plan to use is: Jalal's (skills, resists, stats, simply great) CoH (resists, skills...) 6shael PB (speed) Phoenix (...) And equipment needed opinions on: Magefist (for +fireskills?! unsure on this one) Trang's belt? Dungos? Tgods? I must get Cannot be frozen from something, and trangs add life/mana too. Dungos gives life/dr, Tgods stats/light absorb Boots?! Maybe waterwalks for life? treks for vita? help! amu/ring: was thinking about angelic amu/ring + raven, for dex/ar and cannot be frozen (if not trangs belt), else maybe dual angelics? Planning to use shapeshift skillers, for fireclaws bonus, and bonus to lycantrophy. Note: Lifesteal is not an issue, since phoenix grants redemption aura Please give your opinions, and motivate answers Keep in mind, pure PvM! And besides, how do deal with FI's? Hope for good merc? Thanks in advance!!
