    Need help with Fury Wolf

    Hi, I am trying to build a fury or fury/rabies wolf. I haven't decided on which one yet. I've already done some research on these two builds but there aren't many updated guides on a pure fury build. My question is mainly what is the best 1 handed weapon for a fury or hybrid wolf (grief pb, ebotdz, or griz)?

    Just in case you haven't seen this one (as it's not in the stickies), here's Jay's 1.11 vita fury guide. It should answer a lot of questions about weapon selection, as all the choices you listed have their merits.

    Search for EBotD v. Grief. We've covered this more times than I care to remember.

    Hybrid is better all around. Pure is better for Melee

    Re: Need help with Fury Wolf

    sorry for another off topic, but CallMeJay's jsp profile is just plain racialy offensive lol.

    I like pure better cuz i can melee duel + i do much better vs hammerdins and smiters. Peeps say hybrid is better vs smite, but i got wreaked whenever i tried to tag them with it and most of them have really goodly resistance. Since both smite and rabies are uninteruptible it is kind of like a smite duel except you have to hit and they hit auto.

    Re: Need help with Fury Wolf

    the problem with the hybrid build is "flashing" which requires dwebs or 20/20 shield. since bo from cta only lasts a little over a minute long, it would require too much switching to keep bo. so how necessary is the "flashing" for a hybrid build? thats one reason im considering just pure fury.

    is cta + 20/20 monarch viable? that would i guess be a nice compromise for the two

    Eh BO doesn't help much on a Wolf. I ran without BO and did well. Rabies switch is more important.

    Re: Need help with Fury Wolf

    Yeah, I had CtA in cube first but I got tired to switch all the time. So I ran without bo aswell and did very well.

    Fury/Rabies is better vs most chars and also funnier to play.

    Re: Need help with Fury Wolf

    dont use rabies vs smite imo. either rock the ss and 1 hander or get a long reach 2 hander (doom is best but with restricted stash space the tomb reaver gets the job done) and use fury.

    with doom (easier to stash if pure fury) just shift/fury every time you get knocked back, youll land a big hit (providing it is not blocked or misses) and he cant desynch cause teh holyfreeze, this is bm. but pubs is whatever

    doom 1 hander or 2 hander? You were talking about long reach 2 handers but then u said it saves space.

    Re: Need help with Fury Wolf

    Naw son, holy freeze is only bm on chars who don't teleport is the usual concensus atleast here in east ladder.

    2 hander for smiters, 1 hander for boaz.

    Re: Need help with Fury Wolf

    so is it possible to get by without using a 2 hander at all? since smiters can chargelock you if you dont have a shield.

    Re: Need help with Fury Wolf

    Correct me if I'm wrong but don't smiters often use Grief phase blades (as opposed to berserker axes in spite of the extra range) as to not lose any fpa when being holy freeze flashed by Doom wielding characters (think: BvCs)? If this is the case I don't see the utility in bothering to acquire or stash a Doom polearm.

    Also, I'd still stick to using an eBotDz and Stormshield against smiters. Granted two-handed polearms have more range (you'll still outrange most with the berserker, and you can always grid), charge is a baseline 5 fpa attack regardless of WIAS, SIAS, or OIAS if memory serves me right. This is still faster than the initial attack of fury.

    holy freeze is way more bm than greif.
