Working on getting enough strength to use greenwalkers and eventually gotten.

How important is attack rating with this? So far I have not had any issues hitting enemies with the spikes, but sometimes miss the melee attack? Still not certain how rend works.

Sometimes I swear life/mana(32%/28%) leech doesn't work. Does it leech off the spikes or the initial melee hit from rend?

I have too much attack speed and dont fully understand the calculator, currently using the bear set 2h large axe, with jewels and MO its at 170%WIAS and around 152%IAS on gear.

AR is very important with Rend, you should always aim for at least 85% chance to hit to normal mobs. AR% jewels are very effective because CoL gives you flat AR with Vit. Rend does not count as an actual melee attack at all, that's why melee procs don't work, it's category is a projectile.

(60 IAS) MOed for IAS (30) and 90 IAS from socket fillers.

This setup gets you 180 WIAS, but 5FPA breakpoint for war hammers is 184, so you need a

MOed in as well.

The stat doesn't matter in other gear as much as one would want it to.


You didnt mention a craft Balance Axe, with Balance Axe, your breakpoint is 3 for 219, 4 for 164.

Maximum of 50% ias craft, 90% for jewel, 30% for MO -> basic set up give you 170 IAS -> 4 FPA

To reach 3FPA, you need 49 more, -> 10

You can always use Triune charm to get some. Duncraig trophy gives 10%.

Only weapon IAS works towards lowering fpa on bear/wolf. General IAS will "unlock" lower fpas but only weapon IAS will allow you to reach them.

I thought the weapon vs general IAS were consolidated into just IAS couple patches ago. Thanks for clarifying.

With currently relic releases, it is possible to get 3FPA, some relic like gorefest give you 40% atk speed, put 5 and 4 MO, then you can get 224 WIAS to reach 3 FPA (219 WIAS required) at level 136

I'm a total druid noob so looking for some help from the experts. I just hit level 106, bought some end game gear since it wasn't too expensive. Currently wearing Greenwalker's Charge, Nimmen, Black Void, Knight's Charge, Hammerfist, and Khazra Plate. Couldn't equip Lightforge as I don't have enough Dex. However I'm dying to Griswold of all people. What am I doing wrong, should I not have skipped Mid Game gear? My stats below. I also have 49% life leach.

Griswold is a badass at hell and his Shower of Rocks literally crushes you if you are not careful. Even the Butcher is easier. Just don't summon anything or use merc and use hit and run tactic and you'll be fine with that setup.

But there is a plus: You don't have to kill Griswold, he doesn't give you anything. Just grap Wirt's leg and if you feel like it free Deckard.

Oh wow, I never knew that! He's always just died when I fought him (with previous characters). I treat all the bosses as like a gear/skill check so when I can't kill something I generally struggle with it until I beat it. But that's good to know. I'll skip him for now. Thank you!

, IAS > 266 is useless, and since +200 IAS is Bear form, so more than 66 IAS is useless ?
