Mauler PVP anyone? Hi there I have just recently started playing D2 again after a bit of a hietus but now Im back, I have frequented this site often but posted seldom and have always found verys useful info on the druid forums for the characters I have played in the past (a couple of PVM wolves and Bears). I am hoping to Make a pvp character as I have not played one much and want to try out pvp, and I am thinking of rolling a mauler bear I really want to play a bear and fire claws does not interest me in the least. Anyone have expirience with this lately? here are some of the ideas I have put together 1. E tomb reaver PWNs in the hands of wolves, bears to? - with 70 off weapon ias a two shael reaver will hit a 5 frame maul according to dragoon's calculator pretty nice I think. 2. 70 off weapon ias is a lot here is how I was thinking of achieving it a. treachery armor the 45 ias would make the goal easy to hit with either 20%gloves or highlords and either Nos' belt or 15ias/other mod jewel in jalals b. IK gloves+boots for 25ias on the gloves with set bonus plus highlords plus Nos' belt plus 15 ias in helm 3. Problems: while the ias is awesome on treachery and it has soem fhr as well as high chance to cast venom it lacks other good armour stats ie defense/resists (5%chance to cast fade is awesome in pvm but wont be reliable enough in PVP methinks). With the IK setup I would have to sacrifice some flexibilty in the boot/glove areas as neither have amazing stats but would allow better armour choice. Unless I choose the IK ption this setup will be pretty much devoid of damage reduction can I be competitive w/o it? 4. Just say screw it and go for 6 frames, would not require any off weapon ias and would be way easier but I like fast anyways lots to think about any feedback would be highly appreciated thanks in advance.
