    HoW underrated for ww

    i was messing around with my items ,character warehouse and i tried to compare the difference between oak sage and HoW.

    my druid was wearing full aldurs, gambled shield rings and ammy.

    while common practice seems to be to max oak sage for the wolf, i maxed HoW instead, bought a lvl 76 def act2 merc,gambled weapons and armor for him and went on my way.

    having HoW enabled me to save a few points on dexterity and put those into life. While the extra damage and AR from HOW is really not that great i didntnot seem to die any faster or slowerdue to the lower life. the merc however did lose life quicker than i did, but the extra damage on him seemed to help alot.

    Seems to me thats its a tossup either way........oak for the hardcore and safer crowd and HoW for someone who wants a bit more damage and some individuality. just my 2 cents....

    love to hear some feedback from any wolves and their experiences with HoW good or bad.

    The AI on HoW used to be horrible. You were always re-casting it since it would run off and get killed all the time. I don't seem to have that problem with it now. So it may be a better choice than people remembered just because of some 'soft' changes that affect it's behavior and not it's numbers.

    AR wise most people think of AR as a level problem rather than a hitting problem. Also, If you're going for max block then AR usually isn't a problem.

    personally i love dmg over life.. so i go with with HoW all the time..... it only adds like 500 dmg to my WWs dmg and i dont really need the extra ar [WWs dont need tat much ar]
    so why do i use HoW if it adds just a lil dmg and it makes me miss out on a lot of life?

    simple....
    1. red aura looks > orange
    2. HoW has way more life so less recasting [this is important when PvPing]
    3. i see too many OS WWs around... i like to be different :D

    Oak is immune to phys and poison in nightmare, so it's great for pvp.
    It also boosts life a LOT.
    HoW is weak damage.
    Wolves don't need ar.
    But yes it's a toss up, I will use oak though.

    All three types of spirits are Physical and Poison immune in nightmare, not just oak.
