    why cerebus ? that helm is awesome, but only useful against certain chars.
    all your questions would be answered if you just went to the link queen mebd posted.

    ps tacopaco: jays guide+experience with druids = better than me and you combined.

    Re: pure fury pvp?

    i read the guide but it doesnt realy discus different options.

    my reason for cerebus is i just found 1 and the mods are awsome, 120%ar 4 to shape skills, 10 ll, 2 to feral rage and 30%Ow this helm rocks

    Edit and i am a newb with druids so i ned other peole's experience

    Re: pure fury pvp?

    You're right that in the guide itself there's a pretty set gear setup. However the commentary in the discussion that follows flushes out a lot of the reasoning for using different gear switches and setups. As for the setup you listed, is this for melee duels, pubbing, I'm guessing the latter since you've got fr/w charms listed too? If we know what you're wanting to do with your druid we'll talk your ear off with different setups and options and why they work. :thumbsup:

    That made me laugh, so much I nearly sprayed grape juice on my computer.

    Re: pure fury pvp?

    this is for pubby duels.

    and i was trying to go for a set up that could kill casters and mele without too much gear change

    Re: pure fury pvp?

    IMO the most valuable piece of gear for full on pubbing is a good circlet. A high resists 30% FRW skill circlet is the equivalent of 10xFRW sc's on ladder, and any mod after the Skills/FRW/Resists makes it gravy. Ideal for me would be 2/20 Res/30 FRW/80 Life (I think Squid is the cap for circlets...if not, 60)/10 FHR, as I'd be wearing it with enigma, so it won't need strength. It would have two shaels, bringing 86% within two gear slots (or one GC with a crafted belt and a Ber in the Stormshield instead of Shael). An all-around setup would have to include max block and max DR, for fending off melee and smiters, and if you've got stash space, a prebuff with treachery could replace the Ber in the SS with a shael as well (little stack never hurts). And finally another handy trick would be charging feral rage on a monster in the cold plains with CtA, since you could get all the charges off one monster due to the lower damage. Personally I would use either a robo zerker or an EBotD with this setup, as it would provide range three, damage, and at least 5 fpa speed, though I'm sure Grief would work as well (just harder catching casters with the shorter range, more likely to get clipped by barbs, and more likely to get smited since your initial attack is slower at the same range as most of them).

    Re: pure fury pvp?

    what about having botdz and ss with tomb reaver on switch for the casters

    as for fade would prebuffing of a last wish be as effective?

    dr with ss and vendogos i will have max anyway or do i need to bin the belt for another?

    and my helm would cerebus be soo bad for a pubby, the mods on it are awsome.

    Re: pure fury pvp?

    if you fear gear change then a melee druid may or may not be for you. an experience and successful shapeshifter usually has multiple setups depending on the situation. if you're wanting to limit your gear changes then your're limiting your chances of being successful in pvp.

    if you want to pre-buff with fade use a treachery(sp?) runeword. alot cheaper than last wish.

    once again cerebus is not the best helm to use. against anything with high defense, yes. anything else and a jalal's is FAR supperior, and cheaper. but congrats on the cerebus find. one with perfect AR and +4 to SS skills is hard to come by. hold onto it.

    Re: pure fury pvp?

    Based on the previous gear you listed, a melee setup could look like:

    Code:
    SS sheal
    eBotDz
    Guillaume's Face, the ds is huge
    Fortitude
    Bloodfists*
    Verdungos
    dual Ravenfrosts
    Highlords
    Goreriders
    *Lots of people will recommend Steelrends, but the % ed is a drop in the bucket compared to what fury provides, the defense doesn't help a werewolf, and the cb is negligible in pvp outside of some lld matchups.

    A caster chasing, or all around setup could look like:

    Code:
    ethereal Tomb Reaver
    Jalal's, um-ed or shael-ed
    Fortitude
    Bloodfists
    Verdungos
    dual Ravenfrosts
    Highlord's
    resist boots
    I wouldn't go too overboard with fr/w small charms, Enigma might be worth thinking about too for the fr/w boost if you really need it. This is just a starting point, it's been a while since I've played a high level fury wolf, so I'm sure someone else could chime in with some more advice too.

    Re: pure fury pvp?

    Re: pure fury pvp?

    I'd take Highlord's todo el tiempo for the huge deadly strike. 33 percent is really hard to pass up, plus it provides a skill and lightning resistance for some stacking (besides you'll have a few Ravens to help with the lack of cold stack).

    Re: pure fury pvp?

    the res = insignificant. use mara's.
    the ar = who cares. the +1 to skills, deadly strike and lighting res is way better.

    Re: pure fury pvp?

    i just got this gur finished and in a pubby and he rocks.
    but i got him a few gear changes.
    for mele
    cerebus, fort, ebotdz/ss, gores, 2 ravens, and highlords

    for normal casters, enigma, tomby, alders boots (crap but good frw), ravens and maras, (or if they are *** holes then whisps or dwarf and rising sun)

    for cold sorcs and palas with conviction i chuck on coh then use harmony bow on switch to catch them.

    this guy is lots of fun, and seems to hold his own against most chars. i had a realy good duel with bone necro ( i expected to get wasted by them) but havnt tried him against assasin, zon or smiter yet.

    thanks for all the help everyone. and if anyone has any other sujestions for gear changes vs a specific char please let me know

    Re: pure fury pvp?

    For an all around setup with minimal gear swaps you'd have to go for as much damage as possible while maintaining high stack and good FRW. I've had an idea knocking around for it, using Fort as the main armor, and ETomb/Enigma in stash for the really fast characters. It would also utilize SS GC's, despite being pure fury, as that will add a ton of speed when you charge feral rage. The downside of course is lack of versatility, but if you're interested I can post it. It's not too terribly far from a standard pure fury though, just in-builds a few more things (which isn't recommended, but it's roughly the build I'll use for a family member who plays drunk and doesn't wanna mess with stash runs).
