First off is this PvM or PvP?

For PvM your gear seems fine, you could probably get a better weapon like EBotD Thunder Maul or something of that sort. You could also switch the Cariion for a Rare Ring with Dual Leech/Resists/Life/Etc...

Other then that looks good. Grats on getting to 99.

it is PvM,thanks for the grats,i think i can have a dual leech + life,since i have enough resists........i have an EbotD Thunder maul but the damage never pleases me.......what gear should i take for PvP,i have a lot of elite/unique items on other chars?

For PvP there are alot of changes you need to make...

Rings should be Dual Ravenfrosts 225+AR/20DEX

Amulet should be Highlord's but Metalgrid is a good substitute aswell.

Fortitude would be a better choice then CoH and it would bring up your damage.

Most PvP druids use a shield, stormshield socketed with a Shael Rune is the best choice. Then there is always the weapon...

There are a few choices:

Grief PB [5Frame, range 2, best damage]
EBotD BA [5Frame, range 3, less damage then grief]
Griz Caduceus w/ 3 x 40/15%IAS + Lo rune [4Frame, range 2, less damage then top 2]

and a few more but those are the common ones.

Everything else is fairly standard but make sure you hit the 86%FHR BP.

Best of luck.

I quit playing D2 and donated my account to the wolfpack.

I just stay on the forums to help with Werewolf questions.

LesC, ask to change your title to "kindly Old Sage" ;).

Also, its' worth mentioning that it you shael SS DO NOT go for the 86 FHR break point. It will mess with your block and actually make you block less than it you didn't Shael it.

Ebotd tm is a really bad ideal for a werewolf. It hits a 6fps fury. You would do alot better wit a ebotd greater pole axe.


Also you will not block less with a shealed stormsheild, nor will you get messed up with the 86% fhr break point I use bolth and block, hit recover just fine. Infact I all ways get the first hit in fury vs fury duels.

For a pvp werewolf all you need are the right charms, a good weapon, and 2 different armors. Charm wise get alot of them with plus to life on them. Ar + lifers, Fine sc lifers, and Shape lifers. Any combo will work. You want your hit points to around 7k life. Wile using a sheild.
