What skill?


He probably meant these changes:
Lifeshield -> Barkskin
Circle of Life -> Hunger

Still, the guide is mostly up to date as of 1.8 but lacks end-game content. An update in 2.0 will be great.

Njce ty for letting me know the skill name change still this guide feel unfinished but I guess from end game stuff i can always build my way in any case ty for awmserimg

From what I've seen, max bear stance, the slow target, the life + AR, the life leech, the hp + def in nature. Melee devotion, phys res if needed, +life for masteries. Faerie fire and symbiosis maxed. 1pt rend, 1pt idol (with greenwalker's), 5pt idol effect, 1pt idol aoe.

I'm not online right now to get skill names, but bear feels like it has a ton of points to put wherever it wants.

Greenwalker's Charge! It's a Druid Helm that removes the CD on Idol of Scosglen, so you don't need points invested in it even if you have Ancestral Force.

I've played Werebear a bit before, right now this league my points at 114 are looking like:

25 Werebear Morph
1 Rend
5 Bestial Potency
6 Primal Dominance
20 Hunger
1 Idol of Scosglen
5 Ancestral Protection
1 Ancestral Force
1 Harvest
27 (Max) Barkskin
1 Melee Devotion
5 Tenacity
15 Faerie Fire

I've got points saved so I can max Symbiosis, and invest in Endurance once I unlock it next level. Depending on Phys Res I have, I'll drop Tenacity for Purity.

I don't think I'm missing anything, but it seems relatively straightforward for investment.

Is there a way to calculate the breakpoint of atk speed I have right now?
