Either way im throwing in a carrion wind for more twisters. Out of the choices im thinking horizons is the least desirable. While maybe rift or stormlash being the top choice. This wouldn't limit you to one weapon either, if rift is the better general weapon then the other 2 could back it up by being used against bosses. Thoughts? Ideas?
Stormlash will probably be your best bet while keeping with the theme. The ctc Static is great for general PvM as well as bosses. Rift is slow and Horizon's is just vastly inferior to Lash. Windhammer will do more damage, but Twister does negligible damage and you might as well make a pure Fury wolf at that point.
I never thought of it before, but I do like the idea of a rift scepter just because a fury druid spitting out frozen orbs would be awesome, but with that in mind since wolf and bear form depend on wias, it will be soooooo sloowww. Going with stormlash and its lvl 18 tornado would give 1491 - 1619 damage per tornado when fully synergized, that means maxed cyclone armor, twister, and hurricane. Thats pretty respectable considering you'll probably end up putting out a tornado once every five hits, but is a sizable skill investment. If your going to get the most out of this I would definately cast a hurricane before shifting into wereform, thats an extra 583 - 656 cold damage swirling around you, and since you maxed cyclone armor it will last for 50 seconds. Overall though? the tornado damage will probably be lost among not only your physical damage but all the static field and crushing blow that your weapon carries.
I would go with windhammer because I think it would look cool spamming a bunch of little twisters every hit. Also only have to max out tornado and hurricane. But the biggest problem will be the 225 str rec.
Chains of honor
Raven frost(for the cbf)
Carrion Wind for twisters(crap damage but aesthetically pleasing for the build)
Torch and anni only charms im planning on. Should net me plenty of ds, and open wounds for the fast fury attacks, and have the bonus damage from the tornados and static field. Now should i stay with just te h1 hander or should i use a shield? I could go with SS for dr and nice block, or should i go with phoenix for the added ed? Or just go with a plain Spirit for the overall nice mods?
As my opinion tells me stormlash would be your best choice. It has ctc tornado while having ctc static. The static seems to be a great choice for pvm if you are not rich to get very expensive gear. I would not use rift because of its ctc frozen orb mod. I hate cool down time items.
