    unhappy with my fury

    I know it's early in ladder so I shouldn't expect as much with weaker gear, but still. Yeah, my damage and attack speed are very high and I kill everything non PI instantly, but my resists are just so low, and it is causing my health bubble to dip dangerously.

    I'm like level 75 and did my skills like typical PvM fury:

    20 lycanthropy
    20 fury
    20 HoW
    10 grizzly (maxing)
    10 dire (maxing)

    I have found that I NEED the extra life leech from charging up feral rage and keeping it charged, so I am considering remaking this character and ditching 20 points in something and maxing feral rage. Yeah, after I get dracul's I won't need feral, but I don't think I'll have that for a bit.

    I do have half-descent gear, for good offence.

    "Oath" Feral Axe
    "Treachery" dusk shroud
    Cerebus
    Anglelic amulet/ring/ravenfrost
    10% crushing blow blood gloves with weak resists
    goblin toe
    Blood Belt with 53 life, 24% fhr and fire res.
    mediocre charms with resist, attack rating, and vita

    I have around 2300 life I think when in werewolf form. HoW seems to add around 1500 damage, but I always wonder if I would be better off with Oak Sage.

    I'm also considering cannibalizing the gear from this character and making a hunger/mauler bear substituting guillames for helmet (based on kodiac guide).

    get 1 more lvl and a pair of dracs.

    BTW, one of the reasons i play fury druid is because i love my hp bubble being so bouncy...

    i tanked minions in a full game of lvl 1ns for baal quest... solo, in hell with gear much the same.

    Wanna know what youre missing tho. Shael'ed upped Ribby :) beats oath imo

    and yeah i prefer sage.... Bigger boounces :D

    Duress/up'd shael'd ribby/dracs/jalals would be worthy upgrades to your gear. I also prefer Oak to HoW anyday

    How are you dealing with PI with this gear you have? Having issues?

    the venom and bone spirit eventually kills the pi's so far, but I get beat up pretty bad because I cannot leech them.

    for PI, try to get a reapers toll on your merc, the decrep will trigger a lot, speeding things up big time.
    also try to trade for a low druid torch, they shouldnt be too expensive
    and as already said, try to switch at least your cerebrus with a jalals, the fhr/res/str/skills are just awesome (cerebrus is more for pure fury pvp imo).
    i wouldnt suggest making a maxed feral build, 1 pt in it should really be enough with some +skills
    for the rest you should do fine imo
    good luck

    I just traded for draculs, luckily before I put any extra into feral rage. Also traded very cheap for a near perfect cerebus. I have a jalals also. I am trying to get torch/anni after I get my duress armor and good boots. I am putting shaeled ribcracker on weapon switch for bosses.

    Stick with jalals, its hard to beat in pvm or pvp for a fury wolf. Cerebus is more of a pvp helm when you need that extra bit of ow/ar. Try ribby in general pvm play also not just on bosses it might just surprise you ; )
