Wind druid helm question

I have a wind druid who is lvl 79 right now. I was wondering what helm would work better. A shako or a CoA and will put a 5/5 and a 5/-4 facet in it. Mainly I was wondering if you could tell the difference in damage when you added 2 facets in like this.

Nightwing veil > COA

shako is very good too.. i think its matter of preference.. but nightwing veil or Shako are the 2 best. IMO

i kinda like ravenlore, even tho this helm is made for more of a fire druid:

+120-150% Enhanced Defense (varies)
+7 To Raven (Druid Only)
+3 To Elemental Skills (Druid Only)
+20-30 To Energy (varies)
-10-20% To Enemy Fire Resistance (varies)
All Resistances +15-25

i like it because it has +3 elemental opposed to the +2 from shako which would have been my 2nd choice. this is an elemental build, having +3 to only elementals will be a lot more beneficial than +2 to all because you'll have like what... a spirit that gets boosted opposed to the an extra skill in every elemental. also this helm provides resists.

you didnt mention what this is for, PvM or PvP.
the damage applied with facets is applied to the total of the damage listed. however, some wind elementals arent 100% of a type, it can physical and cold also. so you got to figure that out too. i dont want to say the % because i am unsure and dont want you to learn the wrong number. so ill let someone else say it.

you know.... you just changed my mind... you are 100% correct... RAvenlore is best.

i mean... spirit is useless vs good dueller; they kill it first all the time. (they dragon flight it or rabies infect it anyways... and recasting it wastes too much time in a fast duel IMO)

then the grizzly bear summon serves its purpose no matter what + or -2 points.

the only real down fall of of ravenlore is that you dont ahve +2 skills for BO.

but id rather have the stronger cyclone armor proovided by ravenlore anyways... not to mention the resists and the more dmg tornado...

RAVENLORE > shako and nightwing i think...
thnx

Shako is better.
You're forgetting dr, life, mana. +2 to oak and +2 bo is a lot of life, along with the bonus. Spirit isn't useless learn to recast. And screw cold facets on wind druids, seriously hurricane is WAY to easy to negate it's a waste of a socket.

Here was what I was thinking. The fast hit recovery is nice on the coa. it has one less skill point than a shako but otherwise isn't really much worse in any areas as live on items isn't multiplied by bo or oak. The benifit is 2 open sockets for cold facets and the resistances free up your stash for more elemental charms or allow you to put another facet in you shield. The -15% resistances seem like they would do alot for hurricane.
 
Look, a lot of people wear ss, that means their highest resist is probably going to be cold, for example my wind druid has like 80 stacked cold resist just with normal gear, if you're pvm then do what you want I guess.

It has life ... no dr or mana though but all you would have to do is switch from 2 buls to 1 soj 1 bul. ber a ss and your got dr. You would be adding more skiills at the sacrifice for a lil less life ...

AND

you dont have to look like an idiot with that lil cappy on that alone is worth it to me go go elk helm !!!!!!

quoted from bnet:
'Druid Pelts can have 1-3 bonuses of +1-3 to Druid Skill Levels and can only be worn by Druids. '

Yea, a 3/3/X delerium helm would be nice. I'm sure thats an extra 300-500 damage on your nados over say a shako. And the mindblast would be nice in duels. And not bad in PvM either with those AI curses.

But I like 100% fcr, so for me it's all about the +2/20 fcr circlets with dex/resists also you can ber or sheal em.
