Has somebody tried the WW with Werebear?


Maul is a hammer. Bear form requires axes or maces.

You can morph woth an axe and then switch

Why are you asking a question if you know the answer?

smartasss wrote:u dont even know


Not knowing that a separate class of weapons is actually comprised in another is a perfectly good reason to give erroneous advice. That and the fact the guy asked a month ago and didn't get an answer (he should have been wrong, you'd evidently have participated earlier then :D).


Weapons classes are currently one of the repeated gripes I've had with this mod. Why separate hammers from maces if they're the same? Why are throwing knives daggers but don't work with dagger skills? There are a few unclear things.

Edit: further checking in-game. Documentation shows Maul as a Hammer separate from mace class, but in-game it shows as a Mace class weapon. Confusion intensifies: Scepters are also classified as Mace class, but do not work.

How do you generally deal with monsters that run away as a Werebear? I'm thinking skeleton mages in K3K and Necromorbs in Duncraig. They basically outrun the missile speed of Rend and are annoying me to the point were I'm not having much fun!

There's a couple of things which can improve it a bit:

1: Don't use any armor and shield pieces that has speed penalties.
2: Vine skill slows a lot and can help you catch up to them.
3: Only chase down mobs when Idol is active.

I don't remember if there are any movement speed increasing skills that you can get from items but I'm sure someone can confirm or deny that.

Youll find that if you stop running towards them, theyll come to you. Idol, then pounce. I dont suggest chasing them all, as thatll take a ton of time lol.

On a side note, Im having trouble with end game damage (cant leech very well from necrobots) - link to the gear. I can melt most mobs, but come bosses and necrobots, leeching isnt working very well. Advice?

opinions on merc gearing? it's a lot different than the sigma merc guide on the forums for a5 merc. this one has a lot more procs but would the other one do more dmg with the TU setup?

I'm playing on HC so more procs ie freeze and CC might be beter than raw dmg

No. It's weapon dmg, not a spell.
