    I'm pretty sure it's working as intended, namely because you're not fighting with that weapon, you're fighting an animal unarmed style, which all druids are automatically proficient with.

    The notice is there probably because ... I dunno, coding it to remove the notice while in animal form could've probably messed things up? Keep It Simple.
    Once I get my moods under control, I might actually get a character past level 7... ooh, shiny!

    Paladins got some love! Now for Warpriests...

    I'm currently running up a pure melee druid myself. I went with 2hf though instead of TWF. The combo of great cleave/cleave and reaving roar is just so awesome even late game...and THF makes the most use out of that (in my opinion).

    Also means you don't need THF/ITHF and/or GTHF nearly as much as the TWF feats. They are nice, but no big deal if you can't fit them in.

    Most importantly, I wanted to be able to cast spells at full speed (both for healing and damage) which you can only do in human or elemental forms. THF doesn't work in wolf/bear form....but it's pretty awesome in elemental form.

    Long term I plan on going with legendary dreadnot, and snagging overwhelming crits (along with devestating crits and headmans chop.).

    I went H-elf and took fighter dilly to be able to use 2 handed axes. I'm pure druid so far and planning on staying pure..but I may break down eventually and decide to snag 2 monk/1 fighter levels (for the extra feats, haste boost and of course evasion). If I do, I'll swap out my dilli fighter for monk probably (more Healing amp).

    Net result compared to TWF wolf form is:

    Slower attack rate (much slower).
    Higher per hit damage and Great cleave for AoE goodness.
    Normal full speed casting (both for healing and damage spells)
    Lay Waste/Momentum swing goodness (adding up to great AoE abilities).


    I intend to go down legendary dread as my final destiny, but will twist primal scream and endless faith. My last twist is going to depend a ton on if I take 2 monk levels or not..so I'm not sure on that one.

    Anyway I'm in the mid teens so far and it's working pretty good. Few quests on elite were tough due to no evasion though...so I'm really tempted to add in 2 monk levels (and if I do that 1 fighter)....just so I can get evasion on this character. The last 3 druid levels are not going to make a huge difference...so it's just giving up being pure pretty much.

    Why not dump strength? The flame blade(s) are useful in everything but vale and Amrath, and eventually you can use forgotten light, which also uses wisdom for +hit and damage. Saves you one stat and allows better DCs,more spell points and more dps when you can use wisdom for attack modifiers.

    Were you replying to me or to the previous guy?

    As for me, dumping strength is a bad idea because the wisdom attribute doesn't work in wolf form.

    ETA: Oh, this is Zachski, by the way. I changed my forum name on purpose. Hmm... yet there's still my old account there.

    Perplexing.
