    Which werewolf skill attack are you using?
    What weapon are you wielding?
    How are your stats (str/dext/vit/ene)?

    The thing about melee fighters is that they need nice weapons, one should literally rotate weapons every ~10 levels. Aldur's mace is pretty common, you should probably trade for it or get for free on etf.

    Good weapon is something with decent damage, speed and other nice bonuses.

    I'd go back to normal Baal on /players 8 until you reach level 45. This will help your chance to hit once you move on to Nightmare, and should help you upgrade your gear some. I'm assuming you're playing Single Player - if so, I could help you out with some gear, as well.

    The jump to hell difficulty is very tough and even with a good weapon you will likely struggle. My recommendation is to make a strong weapon such as an insight (ral tir tal sol, polearms only) polearm (High ED%, meditation aura, critical strike...), or...

    Alternatively you could find a Bonesnap or Bloodtree Stump which are very good, and the bonesnap will be even better if you were to upgrade it from normal to exceptional using the recipe Ral, Sol, Perfect Emerald + bonesnap in the horadric cube. Mauls are very fast on druids iirc, and if you aren't already using a 2-Handed weapon you will probably want to switch to a maul.

    edit: lotus is right about the level suggestion. It's hard to hit monsters in hell without being close to or above their level, and 70-75 is the highest you can reasonably get w/o being completely bored out of your mind from NM baal :p

    For fighters, I'd suggest Baal runs either to 70-75, or until you get some nice weapon to clean Den of Evil.

    If baal is too challenging running any area for items is good, too.

    For the insight runeword, you need a polearm (link to exceptional polearms- you're unlikely to find an elite one and a normal one would be too low in dmg).

    The item must have 4 sockets for the runeword to work, and you need to place the runes ral tir tal sol in that order into the item. The earlier link I gave to horadric cube recipes has one for rolling 1-6 sockets in a white item if you find one which is unsocketed and want to try your luck.

    All this said, if you're playing single player you would need the runeword mod to make "ladder only" runewords.

    If that seems like too much work I still think upgraded bonesnap or bloodtree stump (or even Immortal King maul - can't be found in NM but can be found everywhere or nearly everywhere in hell) would work great for you!

    Could you tell us the details for your current weapon? It's likely you could gamble or buy a better one pretty easily but it would help to see what you're using :)

    Oh wow, that's ribcracker, is it not? You should be able to clear the game with that. I would upgrade it when you get the runes (exceptional to elite). Sounds like you just need to level some more to boost your chance to hit and life and such. You might consider socketing it with a amn rune or something (Larzuk quest reward).

    Whether you prefer to play on battlenet or not is personal. I personally don't and have more fun with the game :)
    If you're looking for more information on playing the game single player (you can't bring this character to battlenet) check out various things on the SPF. There are tons of write-ups on builds people have beaten the game with and even under various restrictions in this thread. There are tons of druids there to give you an idea of how you might want to adjust your character or certain mods to look out for. If you want to continue in SP, most players use ATMA or Gomule as an additional, infinitely large external stash (yay for gems and runes!)

    Ribcracker is arguably the best weapon for a fury wolf :p

    What you will want to do is upgrade it to elite, using
    1 Lum Rune + 1 Pul Rune + 1 Perfect Emerald + Exceptional Unique Weapon = Elite Version of Weapon (Single Player, Ladder Only)
    This formula changes the base item type from the exceptional to elite version. For example a Cleaver is turned into a Small Crescent. This does NOT convert the item to the Elite Unique version of the Exceptional Unique Item. Unique item bonuses remain the same; only the item it's based on is upgraded. This can be used to upgrade Ethereal Items also. They will continue to be Ethereal after they are upgraded. Also if the item is socketed, then jewels or runes and their mods will also remain.

    Oh, and you didn't tell us what Enhanced Damage % it got, but it looks like 201% or something awful.
