    The quest fora decent PvP maul bear continues!

    Ok
    well after assembling MOST of the gear for my maul bear(<3 Ink and dagger ^.^)
    im going to repost a rough build of what hes like atm
    160 str(base)
    max [email protected] 81
    165 Vit(~ ~ The magic number?)

    I might remake and make it into a Vita/HoW build
    anyway, onto his gear
    110/95 Phase blade(with caddy and Lo PB in stash)
    Shael Stormshield(might max it instead..if i dont see a differnece)
    37/15 verds
    2* Ravens(I might instead decide to use 1* Raven, and a 30 stat ring with ar)
    Bloodfist
    war travs
    4os /24% FHR archon(90 Maxed atm, anyone with a blue 30 maxer willing to part with it? =()
    ill probably go 39* 3/xx/xx charms
    with an anni

    Ive been thinking about it for some time, and i was considering two things
    A)Use Guillames over Jalals for certain duels(Cblow is great..)
    B)Gores over travs
    ~B)For gores over travs, travs add about 200~300 dmg with max maul and HoW out, but im seriously wondering if its worth it, i lose 15% OW and 15% deadly, which is technically 15% bonus dmg
    With it, i could deadly 50% of the time, making for huge damage, but war travs are so sensual =(
    anyone care to explain which would be optimal?
    TY for your time 6.6

    As a long-time lover of the melee Druid, I say your set-up is looking good.

    I had a werebear and werewolf from when I used to play, and the only thing I can recommend for your bear, OR a werewolf, is to have the most leech and IAS as possible.

    You might wanna try your luck at crafting your own ll rings, assuming you have 75% DR covered already.

    I used a 6 shael phase blade with my bear and he handled all other melee PKers well. I wouldn't put a caduceus on my bear.. that is just unbearably slow. Try a 6 shael pb and see if your current weapons can beat that :p.

    His Phase Blade is just as fast as a 6 Shael PB, and more damage, so keep that one. :)

    I'd definitely go for the Gore Riders. I've always liked them more, and I think they would help more. You don't need the DR, do you? (Or did 1.10 nerf their DR or something?) Plus Gores are a bit faster running, no? That could be important for you.

    Looks decent, though. I'd try to focus on either Vit or Str more exclusively (max block, str for items, then rest in either str or vit). Up to you.

    There's no "quote" option -_-.

    Yeah I just learned over the thread that DR has been dropped to 50%... Good job Blizzard :mad:

    Definitely Gore Riders. War Travs is... nice, if you're MFing.

    The 15% DS from Gores added to the % given by Highlord's ammy is more than compensation for a lack of damage, if you have any.

    ed/max and ed/min jewels do not work correctly in armors. However they do work correctly in weapons.

    max works correctly everywhere.
