ok so heres the idea to make a bear thats main attack is hunger and to try and counter the massivse damage reduction from hunger -75% hes gona be titan, so far skill placement will be something like
max hunger (of corse)
max bear (for damage)
max lycon (durration and life)
max how (damage and ar)
that leaves me quite a few skill points to play around with.
equipments giving me the most trouble trying to sort out, so far my plans are to use ik maul (2 shael) and use gore riders and duress giving me lots of cb and some ds and open wounds. helm will probly be jalas for the res and +skills. and thats realy as far as iv got lol. so any pointers/ advise would be great
Looks like a good plan as far as I can see. Since you're planning to go with the IK-Maul, IK-gloves and -belt is a nice option. Go with at least one Raven Frost (for CBF), the other ring is arbitrary. Some good options are; another raven for more AR (AR will probably be a problem), Wisp Projector (to counter Gloams), something crafted/rare with resistances, life, AR etc. I would choose Highlord's, Metalgird, Mara's or something magic/rare/crafted with resistances, life, skills etc. for amulet.
Max out resistances (at least lightning and fire) with charms and then get as many small charms of vita you can fit in (or get your hands on), and you'll probably achieve a decent life pool regardless of the titaness. Some AR charms (Steel SC of Vita ftw) might be necessary though.
Your skill selection looks okay but I strongly recommend you to put at least one point in Shock Wave and one in Grizzly.
As for mercenary I recommend, Act2 Might, Defiance or Blessed Aim, Act1 Fire or something random you like.
edit: +skills stuff on switch to prebuff werebear is a good idea.
