    still not enough attack rating

    with cerberus, 2x angel ring and ammy, and 2x gc that has 100+ ar, I still only have 25k ar. I am a fury/rabies druid and ww is not maxed yet. What can i do to get more ar? I don't think it is possible to hit high def barbs with my ar.

    Do you use enchant from demon's limb? If not, use it

    what do i need to hit 30+k ar? I don't think maxing ww is needed considering that lots max oak instead. Get more ar charms? I have 2 gc that give 100+ ar and that does not seem to help much.

    Do you have enough dex to have max block at your level?

    10 SS GCs and enchant will grant you enough AR

    i have max block. do most duelers use demond limb to prebuff? i plan to use 9 shapes gc. I have 4 now. So getting 10x ar gc is out of the question.

    Small and large charms with the right mods are great too. With the same gear you have I hit 33k plus a little change. With HoW I hit like 40.9k.

    9 ss gcs, anni, dtorch, and 10 3/20/20s could be your inventory, unless you need more fhr or res.

    Sorry I ment 9 GCs, not 10.
    Using enchant for a prebuff is a drag, but most of the time you don't need more than 25k AR. Whan you need it, use enchant

    25k AR is not enough for me against 30k+ defense barbs and pallies. If you are the exact same level and your attack rating meets their defense, you only have a 50% chance to hit, and then of coarse 75% block is always an issue. In your case you will be hitting them like 1 out of every 10 if you are lucky.

    Plus to skills, and plus to ar cannot happen.

    http://www.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/magic/largecharms.shtml

    Check it out there.

    Now moving on.

    I have found that having items around now normaly since my werewolf right now is lvl 90. I have been able to hit a high def user. But normaly thats becasue they are a lower lvl then I am. So the items I use tend to be the same answer everyone else is giving. I would add points to werewolf for the attack ratting. Level 10 werewolf with plus to skills from items seams to be enough.

    I hit 30k AR with angelics, anni, dtorch, and 8 SS gcs. I still feel like I need abit more vs some high def pallies and barbs.

    Hmmmm anyone tried out Hsarus combo? It's boots and belt and gives the same bonus as one Angelic ring/ammy. I've been contemplating it as a possible substitute in some situations to giving up Highlords and Ravens for Angelics.

    Jalah mane - 30
    Blood fist - 30
    Verdungo - 10?

    Ive shaeled my jalals. But thinking on resocketing. That and charms is the only way with that setup...
    A nice belt with 24 fhr, stats, life and res is another (better?) option.

    belt 24
    jalals 30
    Bloodfist 30
    1sc 5

    89fhr.

    First when I read your posts I got the feeling that you think attackrating has to be the same if not more than the persons defense. If so then this is a common misconception, attackrating and defense rating actually have breakpoints {but god knows what they are}.

    Imo, the easiest way to have an advantage against any high defense character is to be much higher level. I had a lvl 99 fury wolf for a while, and he only had about 22k ar vrs melee, and most ww barbs thought I had some sort of stacked defense and 40+k ar.

    my druid is only lvl 83. Maybe that's the problem? Baal runs are boring but i guess i have no choice
