    Question on desnyching hammerdins vs. fury druids wolf vs bear.

    The norm people say is the use of wolves but i wonder if the bear would be better. For these two reasons. One the bear seems to be more independent and will wander off affter someone not even on your screen while the wolves won't. Also the bear has greater reach. I think i still got some skill quests left lol (I hope) I am also thinking he is probobly more benneifical vs trappers because the eeze of spamming him. Finaly people are more likely to be distracted by him, people don't see wolves as a threat but who knows what a bear could do to you. I guess that settles it i should put 1 in bear, but what do you think about my proposal?

    5 wolves are more likely to pick up someone desnyching than one bear.

    for windies at least people say having a bear out is good for sorc's. i dont know if the same thing can be applied to shapeshifters.

    I don't think that's true, usualy wolves ignore opponents unless the opponents are very close while a bear chaises affter anyone who is on the border of your screen. If you think someone is in a certain place and summon the bear near them, even if they are off your screen the bear will still go torwards them while the wolves would run back to you. Desynch only tricks the screen, not the ai's.

    well windies move have the virtue of teleport, much easier to stay close with one. With a fury the paladin will be aproaching from afar. I theorize the bear will pick up on it sooner than a wolf.

    I'll have to go with Jayson on this one, as it's always been my experience that the wolves will pick up on a desynched enemy long before a bear will. In fact, an Oak will even, as somewhere in it's kooky ai, it's given the same kamikaze attack as a grizzly, only without the arse to back it up. Besides...go with the flow for the post on this one...Jayson's endorsing wolves over bears :p Worthy of a screenie at the very least, IMO.

    But what if you summoned the bear at where you think they are and see where it moves from there? you can't do that with a wolf.

    Yes but it's much more hit and miss than with the wolves. Wolves allows you to spread them out in a net type of pattern rather than just one point.

    Ok, well i guess you got me sold but one last thing.
    It is next to impossible to resummon such a net in a duel, but the bear is very easily resummoned and i don't think you can argue the bear isn't better than 1 wolf.

    So i could go 5 wolves to start and bear there affter?

    do what ever you wish. 5 is still better than 1, but you seem to think you know whats best regardless.

    You wouldn't need to summon/resummon either at that point, as you've got a bead on where the hammers are at and can go swat the annoying hammerdin at that point ;)

    And you're assuming the wolves will all die at the same time. more times than not it's only one or two at most.

    Re: Question on desnyching hammerdins vs. fury druids wolf vs bear.

    No no, i don't asume that, i do asume however that they all will die at some point in the duel and also that even though you may know where the hammerdin is, that doesn't mean i can go in for a swat or kill him and it doesn't mean he can't resynch. I have tried resummoning wolves during a duel and i get punished for it. I don't think i know best obviously because i haven't even tried it yet. Jayson i think you missed what i said in the last post entirely, i said i would use wolves first...

    zzzzz

    What? I'm not one to talk, but you are really frustrating me. I made a completly different suggestion and you repplied as if you had allready given me the answer and that you deffinatly knew you were right, something that you yourself acused me of without basis. I completly got your point and altered my suggestion to fit it. You never even actualy adress the things i say. Anyways i will let you know what i discover.

    you're the one whos frustrating me. i gave you the answer you wanted last night, but you tried to argue that is was wrong. me = years of experience of playing druids. can you say the same ? It took a few people backing me up for you to half-admit that what I said was right.

    the whole fact your response was based on THEORY CRAFTING, something you admitted yourself is the biggest joke.

    Its hard to help someone who acts like they know better/everything. so thats why i keep saying do what ever you want.

    Why not just try both and see which works better for you, then post which worked better and why?

    yes. the best advice ever is to try and experiment with things and see how it goes.
