Suggesting to max wildfire, then going scosglen set, and other items that give you no fire pierce or fire spell dmg, and taking vine companion over fon... Sorry to bash on this, but you have no idea how to play this. This looks like a wdm build, so wildfire will do next to 0 dmg on bosses (on hell, ofc). You could free your points from wildfire and get some avoid from symbiosis.
Long story short: there are 2 ways to play this. Standard wdm build with rend and vine, or wildfire build which is a melee caster, stacking fire spell dmg, pierce, and str (with free str factor from fon)

Im playing as an full rend phys werebear.
Though I still wondering about some things :

- Is attackrating still that important, cause rend animate skill is always hitting right?
- And also how does the crushing blow work with this animate, should I aim for high CB?

You will not be able to wear gotter without using str mo on all your gear, also steppe sleeper and crafted creepy belt where you hit flat all attributes, even with all that you still need full sigs and all charms that give flat or % attributes + big str umbaru chest + big str wormhole to wear gotter.
As seekers suggested use that calculator to find out bps for different bases , gona throw on bp you should aim (5fpa) for if using gotter (170 wias minimun and 507 total gear ias, which also includes your wias) and fhr breakpoints are 86 fhr for 4 frames and 200 for 3 frames.

Its not my intention to disrespect, but rather to making this guide better can you actually go play bear and use those items you suggested, there is so many random items that do nothing for build. Anyway gotter is center piece of this build, and you need to build around or for it, so getting 5400 str is priority, and you are no where near that with gear you suggested.

Nice format tho, you just need to play build into end game and see what works and what does not, and not just post random items like dementia and klatuu and few others .

Also mixing rend and wildfire is no go, with "endgame" gear wildfire has 0 use, only part where i used wildfire was few stoneskin unique monsters while proggresing hell, so either make wildifire guide and post items for wildfire, or go full rend and leave out items like dementia and such.

All in all it just seems like few people gathered in voice chat and slapped some random item suggestions, you have the basics just go play and try to get gotter eqiuped it will get to you how you supposed to build rend bear.

Circle of life really takes care of all AR needs early game so feather claw and wormtongue really aren't needed. Shroud Royal is a good option but I went for defense instead of damage on this piece. I used Norrecs Topor much of my own early game and it does work fine, but I tried out Edge of Extinction upon request and it just felt better.

Circle of life takes your vitality and multiplies by 3 and adds that number as flat AR. Not even close to taking care of your AR needs. It does not matter how much damage you have if you are not hiting with it. About weapon - guess it's a choice of preference and druid skills + proc vs regen, str and such. Feels like edge is more suited for poison flash build which i did not play.

Unsure why you're bashing me on someone elses guide here budbud, but I'm glad you are a huge fan of mine, keep up the good work!

As for Toxen's guide, I had very little input on it, all I did was give some suggestions for stuff he should add in terms of sections to the guide. Most of the guide was made with people who he's played with and their input. Obviously it's his first guide and could be better for sure. But considering Crash here is a guide expert? Maybe instead of throwing insults around you could assist improving the guide overall for the better of the community? I dunno, up to you m8
