    PVP Wind Druid gear choice

    I am currently working on a wind druid for PVP. I have all the gear chosen, except I am debating on which helmet and amulet to use. Here are my choices:

    141 Defence Shako
    27 Resist Maras

    That's what most druids usually use. However, I have found some pretty nice rares, so i'm thinking about using them.

    Blood Brow Tiara
    +2 Druid Skills
    +20 FCR
    +9 to Minimum Damage
    All Resistances *19
    Damage Reduced by 6

    The circlet is unsocketed, and I can socket it with an um or shael.

    Corruption Beads Amulet
    +2 Druid Skills
    +21 to Strength
    +10 to Dexterity
    +77 to Mana
    Lightning resist *21%
    Damaged reduced by 2

    With the circlet, I do not reach another FCR BP, has I already have 99 from my other gear. What do you guys think I should use?

    If you were planning to wear Lidless to reach the 99% FCR BP, then lose it, equip SS, and go Block.

    If you were already going block with SS and was using dual FCR rings, lose them and dual SoJs.

    Block is SERIOUSLY worth it on a Windy Druid because unlike other casters such as Bonenecs / Sorcs, Tornado is a very short range spell compared to theirs and usually have to cast from really close or they will just swing off to the side, missing your target completely.

    WW Barbs will OWN you, although against other melee chars such as Smiters / Zealots you will have easier time against if you're minion stacking with 5 Spirit Wolves / Oak.

    Edit: Oh btw I recommend Tiara + Mara's

    i believe in a zero block druid :)

    still use ss for the res + dr tho

    but with 6.4k life i can beat around 70% of barbs cause i can tank a little

    make sure u at least hit the 99fcr/99fhr bp's

    99% fhr? wow i've been away too long, what bp is at 99% fhr?

    on that note, 20% fcr druid helms USED to be UBER. I paid a KINGLY ransom for one back in 1.09. while your taking these other guys advise, i would add simply, that if you plan on using your tornado skills, research where all the bp's are, and whether or not it would be possible to get go up a couple more notches in fcr bp's. as i recall you can (used to) be able to block lock opponenets who didnt have enough fhr with tornados.

    pardon me if my info is 6 months out of date, i haven't played in that long. :) just trying to point out what may be useful info :)

    99% is 11 frame

    20fcr are still useful circs to hit 99%bp for standard builds
