Fireclaws Werebear

Fireclaw bears are mostly used for duelling and makes use of the fact that fireclaws does substantial damage with just 1 synergy(22%*20 lvls) and thus all the bear needs is speed and attack rating. The main idea focuses on dealing 3--5k fire damage per hit, with about 6 hits per second which works out to be quite a high dps comparable to some fury wolves.

A typical Firebear is very item dependent and it is generally not a playable PvM build past nightmare as monsters become immune to fire.

StatsEdit

EquipmentEdit

PvP setup for firebear(A)Edit

Lore Runeword

Chromatic Ire

Angelic rings+ammy

War Travs

Sigons Gloves

Arachnid Mesh

Stealth Runeword

Weapon: 6 socket phase blade gemmed with 4 shael runes and two 15%ias jewels with other mods. Other mods should NOT be +dmg or +%dmg and should be either attack rating/def/resistance.

This gives the fastest attack speed a bear can reach(4 frames per hit). Rational for jewel choice is due to the fact that this build will not have full resists and physical damage delt is negligible.
Gloves need not have increased attack speed as the weapon itself is fast enough.
PvP setup for firebear(B)Edit

Helm: Jalal's mane

armour: Arkaine's valour

amulet: Metalgrid

boots: Goreriders

Stormshield

Belt: Verdungo's hearty coil

Rings: Ravenfrost+ Bul-Kathos wedding band

weapon: see above

Gloves: magefist


PvM setup for FirebearEdit

Just take the B build and change:

Amulet: Mara's


If you wish to try your hand at hell difficulty with firebear prepare to be frustrated with fire-immunes as you will have to switch weapons or continue dealing 600 physical damage to a 30,000 life creatures ONE AT A TIME using the max speed phase blade. although one creature will still die in 2–4 seconds you will be overrun by the mob of fire immune creatures.

Weapon: Baranar's star/Lightsabre/azuewrath/stormlash/horizon's tornado/Ribcracker staff/tomb reaver

Armour: I suggest a runeword item with resists like prudence/Chains of honour/stone/duress but you can try aldur's armour too.

Gloves: Dracul's grasp. (although your paltry physical damage will not cause you to leech much back, it helps a lot when surviving in hell difficulty.)


Simpler PvM buildEdit

Full aldurs set

Socket the weapon with 3 shael runes for speed.

Rest of the items remain the same except for those replaced by aldurs set.

Using aldurs gives you the opportunity to use other shields like tiamat's rebuke/headhunter's glory/moser's blessed circle.


Last words/overviewEdit

Its difficult PvM and would make the bear seem a very unfinished character that could be further developed as it is severely handicapped by the lack of skills or attacks that affect more than 1 target.


It is also a very tricky PvP character to play as people can easily use fire absorb and full resists to negate much of your damage.
