    AKA "Don't Believe Every Build That You See" AKA "Nat's Light Plate Is Sub-Par"

    This was a slog. I went with the old Town Dump Werebear build, but without Chains of Honor or IK Soul Cage I lacked considerable power. Nat's Light Plate with a 15% res all jewel wasn't even close to workable. He really bogged down in Hell, so Duress went on and I invested an Ist in Delirium. This allowed me to go up to P3 for all of Hell without too much trouble. The wolves were all stars for crowd control and corpse disposal, and Raven proved it's worth as a one point wonder many times over. Getting the full synergy for the Wolves from Grizzly doesn't seem as important as max'ing Maul for AR & DMG at low player settings.

    I try to stay away from using Treachery/Duress on every melee build (I don't have Fortitude, Chains of Honor, or Enigma) just like I try to use something other than my 1.07 Oath and Death swords for variety. After using Delirium, I have to add that to the list of "too easy"; man that thing is ridiculous. The Confuse area of effect would often be the whole screen. That said, watching Urdars smack each other into hit recovery was fun.

    I finished this in 1.12 before upgrading to 1.14 so IM is no longer a concern, but I don't think that would have much effect. If I did it again, I wouldn't use this gear build. The elemental damage from 4 pieces of the IK set was laughable even on P1. Better weapons and armor abound after the 1.11 Runewords were added. If you are looking for a cheap and durable Werebear for a restart or a tournament, Fireclaws/Maul + Duress should cover your bases. The FHR on Duress was actually the biggest improvement, allowing me to get back closing the distance to missle monsters and leaching.

    Yeah, that sounds... painful. But my patience is limited, so maybe not so bad for others.

    Grats on completion! ;)

    Yeah, 'Delirium' is pretty much ez-mode in the form of a hat.
