    [SUGGESTIONS] Fireclaw/Fury Wolf

    As some may know, I have somewhere around 16 characters that I want to make, and this will be my fourth (Exp) char (w/ 1 Classic Char who will become Exp when I'm bored w/ HF Rushing)...

    So, I was thinking about BIG attack speed, AR, LOTS of fire dmg...

    Stat Allocation
    STR - Around 100 Base
    DEX - None
    VIT - Rest
    ENE - None

    Skill Allocation
    Shape-Shifting
    1 Werewolf (Duh!!!)
    20 Lycanthropy (Extends WW)
    1 Werebear (Pre-req)
    1 Maul (Pre-req)
    1 Feral Rage (Pre-req)
    20 Fire Claws (Primary Attack)
    1 Rabies (Pre-req)
    20 Fury (Secondary Attack)

    Elemental
    20 Firestorm (Synergy)
    1 Molten Boulder (If I ever use spells, I won't use this one, but it's still Synergy)
    20 Fissure (Synergy)

    Summoning
    1 Oak Sage (Extra Life!!!)

    Equipment
    Jalal's Mane
    Gloom Archon Plate
    String of Ears
    Lava Gout*
    Gore Rider
    The Cat's Eye
    Ravenfrost
    Rare Ring - Resists
    Upgraded Ribcracker

    Highlights
    90% FHR
    90% IAS
    +55-60 Dex (AR!!!)
    +30 Str
    +2 All Skills and +2 Shape Shifting
    60% FR/W
    65% CB!!!

    * Does the CtC Enchant work while in Wolf form? If it does then that is why I chose Lava Gout... Only 2% CtC (IIRC), but Lvl 10 Enchant + Lvl 24 Fireclaws + Synergies = UBER FIRE DMG (IMO, I think... Need to test it :thumbsup:) If not, then I guess Laying of Hands for the 350% Dmg to Demons? Will work great with Fury!!!

    So... Please feel free to make any comments, recommendations, etc. I greatly appreciate it. I really think this could be a fun character.

    LoH + Enchant from Demon Limb (lvl 23) = pwnage

    I don't know if this will work for a wolf, but when I had my fireclaw werebear I used a 6 shaeled phase blade. It worked just fine :D, but i'm sure a ribcracker would do a better job.

    If I'm not mistaken, it would work the same way, but what is the dmg on a Phase Blade? A pitiful 31-35? But the Ribbie's dmg when Upgraded becomes a base of 75-107 as a Stalagmite, plus the 200-300%ED, plus 50% Crushing Blow, and plus the Faster Hit Recovery.... Not to mention the 30-65 added dmg...

    Phew... I think a slower but higher dmg weapon is worth it.. IMO though...

    you still have the switch options. for fire claw you damage is mostly fire. you need a fast attack weapon,physical damage is useless.
    an azurewarath is godly, but for those like me without a 6 shaeled PB will get 5 fps in wolf form and 4 fps attack in bear

    DUH!!! I can't believe I didn't think about that... GREAT point...

    Hmmm... Of course that depends on if I find a PB, and w/ 6os... And the fact that I don't like the looks of PBs... IMO they look cheesy... What could be a good replacement?

    30 + (6x20) = 150% IAS... Whoa!!!

    No, but I'm a fan of looks on the Inventory Screen :laugh:

    INFO --> To hit a 5frame Fireclaw in Wolf form, I would need a 6os Weapon w/ a WSM of -20... *Taken from the Dragoon's Wereform Calc* That basically means a 6os PB... yuck! Well, for the main attack, I guess this allows me to use Stormshield for the DR%, correct?

    To hit a 5frame Fury, I would need the Ribbie to remain NON-Upgraded, with a Shael... Plus 40% IAS from somewhere else (Ammy/Gloves)... But that would mean less dmg...

    If the Ribbie is Upped w/o a Shael... 7frames
    If the Ribbie is Upped w/ a Shael... 6 frames (More dmg)
    Non-Upped w/o Shael... 6 frames (Less Dmg)
    Non-Upped w/ Shael... 5 frames (Less dmg)

    I think I will go with the Upped Ribbie with a Shael :thumbsup: 1frame won't make THAT much of a difference, considering it IS my SECONDARY attack, not primary...

    For the record, with slvl1 Werewolf and a couple of +skills (effective slvl 3 is good enough), you do not need 6 Shaels in a Phase Blade to hit the 5 fps breakpoint. You can do it with 4 Shaels and 2 IAS jewels as well (the target is 110% IAS). If you have nice IAS jewels, that might be something to look into (of course, if you are like me, your only prefixed IAS jewel has +10 AR and so is essentially worth nothing more than a plain one, but... >_>).
