i have 2 words for you draculs grasp that ctc life tap is godly, (thats if you have them of course, also whats you resists like?? if there good go with shaels for faster block if not use gems. for charms you want to get as many small charms with life on as possable

Um or p diamond. This isn't PvP.

You need ar/damage charms or res/life charms
Meh. I don't like this for a PvM armor (OW is crap, expecially at high players settings, and the CB/res is low.
raven 20/231
Good.
Get another raven. The 20 dex is 80 life that is BO/lycan able. You shouldn't need the LL or the skill
Atma's,LOH
Good. The Amp is great, as is the LoH.

Grief pwns. Just check out the IAS tables to see which breakpoint you're hitting.
Wolfhowl P Ruby ? <-- should be %damage or +min max dam
Depends on your damage +30 max would be great here.

Thundergod i hate gloams but should do even without tips?
Sure. Go with it, even though it's not necessary. The stats will give you more life.

You're looking for ar/life, dmg/ar/life, res/life charms.

Strijdje's Lycan (pat thread)

good luck

If you weren't using grief, I'd suggest going 2-handed. With that much defense (20 Shout + 20 Iron Skin), you're going to be blocking much less than the listed 75% of physical attacks, and you have such a huge life pool that it'd take monsters quite a while to kill you even naked! Look at it this way: Werewolves go 2 handed, and they neither have as much def nor as much life. Most barbs go 2 handed, and they usually don't have as much def (only 1 in IS) and definitely not as much life. Why should a Wolfbarb who has incredible defense and potentially incredible amount of hitpoints use a shield? As an added bonus, you won't have to deal with the slow block rate.

If you still want to go with SS (or, more accurately, the Grief), use a pdiamond. Ums are not to be wasted like that!

Merc: Stone ftw!

Wave 2: You might want to try deshifting to barb form and use your crowd control War Cries (namely, Howl & Taunt) before you shift again and get rid of Achmel asap.

@Deaddave: I don't think he'd need any more life leech than what Feral Rage gives. Yes, it doesn't work on skeletons and the like, but you don't have to wait for 20 hits for the 350% dmg to demons bonus on LoH to work.
