    Would an Aldor's Hunger bear be viable?

    In an attempt to be extremely stylish I am going to be making a character of every class with their matching set. Some of pretty straightforward on what build to use and are pretty good and others.... not so much. Aldors falls in the "not so much" catagory.

    So after tweaking some stuff around I've found that I could potentially make a decent FC bear or maybe even a hunger bear. The only problem with the hunger bear is that he will be only hitting 8fpa @ 50% crushing. Will this be enough do get the job done?

    It won't work. The key to a good Hunger build is Crushing Blow, and the Aldur's set doesn't have any. You could get 10%CB from your gloves but that's it.

    A Fireclaws bear with Aldur's is possible. Your attack won't be as fast as it can be, but the combined Fire and Physical damage is strong enough, so you don't need to worry too much about immunities.

    Hello,

    My first Druid was a Mauler/Hunger/Summoner hybrid type. I will say that up until Hell it was effective, yet with self-found items in single player a little slow (I was only able to find a damn 2os Aldur's Rhythm). Once I hit Hell there were some problems as there are a fair amount of Physical Immunes and Undead.

    Another thing to consider is that it was one of the most boring builds that I have ever played. So that is something.

    Ed is right you will need a fast attack and as much Crushing Blow as possible. Aldur's Rhythm is o.k. for Fireclaws but not so much with Maul or Hunger.

    aldUrs is a good cheap fc druid build.

    Like i said in first post I can get 50% crushing, not too bad. Only problem I am seeing is having an 8fpa attack.

    You mean Hurricane Jary? I'll post the link to it when I get home from work (running late as it is), but if you do a search for "Aldur's Wind Druid" it should be right near the top. Utterly wicked build for an Aldur's set IMO.

    I wonder how you'd do that. The Aldur set consists of Helm, Weapon, Armor and Boots. The only remaining items with CB are gloves (I might miss something here), and the maximum CB on gloves is 10% (steelrend or crafted).

    ^ you could socket the weapon with a few ber's, but that will just weaken the build in my opinion.

    Re: Would an Aldor's Hunger bear be viable?

    Hello,

    I have to agree.

    The only way I see that you can have a full Aldur's set and 50% Crushing Blow is if you have a 3os Aldur's Rhythm with 2 Ber Runes (40% Crushing Blow) and a Shael and Steelrends (10% Crushing Blow). This still leaves you at a 10 frame attack with Hunger. If you had a Cat's Eye amulet you should hit 9 a frame attack, but not an 8.

    Perhaps some other combination of set items?

    Well going by the calculator if I stuff a few 15% ias jewels in other sockets I can hit 8fpa. And yeah the original plan was to ber ber shael the mace.

    Screw it I'm just gonna go fire...
