    dumb question. It's just open ended and non-specific... like, better at what?
    A bear build will prbably be better at shockwave lol... a wolf build will prolly be better at feral rage and rabies.:wink3:

    What are you using the build for, because even the godliest pvp build will get owned against ubers, per se... or visa versa.

    pure fury because 80k rabies = 300 pvp dmg if they stack res.

    80k Rabies is just shy of 10k Dmg after PvP penalty and res. Meaning 40k Rabies, easily achievable, will deal 5k dmg with max res. Unless you mean per second and then it's 357. Regardless, it's extremely potent.

    As for "best". There is none. That's like asking what's better, Hammerdin or a BVC. It depends. It'll always depend. Find what you like and play that.

    Actually I had a friend bite me after I put on andys face and quaffed an antidote so that I had 95% res to poison and it did just over 300 dmg to me total.

    Ok, running some numbers.
    80k rabies is 23 pvp damage a frame. Lets say that even with a -70/20 switch you're still not lowering their resistances an andys brings you up to 85%.

    3.5 a frame x 600 = 2100 pvp damage
    With 75% reduction
    3.5 x 150 = 525
    With an antidote potio
    1.1 x 600 = 660 pvp damage
    with 75% duration reduction
    1.1 x 150 = 165 pvp damage

    So yeah, being bm neutralizes rabies damage.

    I'll vote vita fury wolf for PvM. My experience is too limited to make a recommendation for PvP.

    gooo wolves!

    good luck and good hunting!

    Well my number one biggest argument skills wise is that there are only two forms of attack that cannot be negated - magic damage and physical damage. Druids can't get magical damage so they go for physical over anything else - tornados, fury, molten bouldrr, volcano etc are all skills that are best served when their physical damage element is focused on. So if you build a f/r and someone uses an andys face with a gul in it for example, then you are basically reduced to a fury wolf with low attack rating and no backup skills that are viable.
