hi everyone, i'm just wondering which weapon would be better for a fury/rabies wolf? having recently returned to playing d2 i can finaly afford some nice gear and i'm thinking of respecing my old lvl 86 ele druid to f/r
i was thinking of ebotdz, but with the arrival of grief i'm torn between the two
ebotd has the nice stat boost and ll/ml etc. but with great dmg,ctc venom, and - poison resist grief seems to be far more suited to a fury/rabies build am i right? does rabies overwrite the ctc venom? any help would be fantastic
Secondary for Rabies/Switch gear
Deaths Web -40 to -50 psn res with psn fct / Mosser's Shield with 2 psn facets, 3 soc low str shield(Headhunter) with 3 fcts or Monarch with 4 psn facets(best).
*Wear a decent Bramble armor and Trang Gloves and your good.*
Wear IK boots or Aldurs, Angelic Ammy n Ring, Raven, Dungo, Jalal, torch, anni, FR/W charms with mods x 8 (yep it works) 2 SS charms
Strategy: Bite em with BOTDZ/Rabies Skill, run away and push W/Switch (DW/psn shield), switch back in 12 secs. Hit 'em hard with BOTD/Fury until they drop.
You have like -70+ to enemy psn resist with Deaths Web w/fct, and 4 psn fct Monarch and 50(bramble) to psn damage and 25 (trang glove) each time you cast.
Like you said - if your rich don't take shortcuts - get that -120 psn res and kill people man. 40K+ psn kills! I usually have time to go and pee on a bush as their life disappears. Don't skimp on the Fury either - Get a 400+ed EBOTDZ and Storm with Um and smack people down after you psn them. They're dyin anyhow - put them outa their misery.
But don't forget to stand over the guy you just killed an just cast HOW over and over - You look like King Kong beatin his chest after a kill - it's just style man - all fun! Think like a Rabid Wolf and you will persevere.
thx for the replies everyone
i was aware that once i hit with rabies i'd need to wswitch to a dw/4faceted
monarch i just was'nt sure if hitting with grief and getting a venom proc would cancel out rabies so i'll need to start trading for a nice 4xx% botdz
thkx again guys
