    I am really having a hard time finding builds for Bear. I am thinking something like 13 Druid, 5 Cleric, 2 XX? 2H Maul, Heavy Armor. Can anyone point me in the right direction of a build or at least which stats to start with? Str based? Or...

    I just know NOTHING about druids, lol

    13 Druid because I am after a druid past life and looks like 13 is a sweet spot? I could go 8/6/6 too?
    5 Cleric to get Sylvanus Maul crit improvement?
    2 XX? What other class should I do?

    I'm trying to do a big str, stunning 2h maul bear. Any help would be appreciated!

    Hmm, think you need at least 6 cleric for the crit range improvement. What about this build? https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...Maul-Bear-Roar

    But make some adjustments for more druid levels to get your past life?

    Not worth using the +3 heart for past lives maybe but might give you some ideas.

    Notes:
    1 build objective was to control the fight, pulling mobs with intimidate/threat and keeping them under control (tremor, dire charge, etc) while trying to keep a decent dps.
    2 wis is better then str because give sp and better CC, also while using rage as a damage boost, bear rage is kinda underveloped to be the build focus.
    3 cleric levels are there only for bless of silvanus (even if, by lore, druids should be able to qualify for those and the build would have renovating rages and earthquake), at least got 2 nice buffs from it; going with luck domain for being more defensive/control oriented (better saves, displacement), but rage domain would let you use all your spells while raged.
    4 considered using healing aura, but too few turns and didn't heal for much in lamma.
    5. kept minimum investment in falconry because i think the concept is silly, but it may improve the dps (and give a 18 and 20 cores). Also you get no benefit for having both lvl6 cores from natures warrior and protector
    6 Going with LD to keep bumping the critical, would work better if momentum swing worked with animal form. Not a faster attacker, so blitz may be harder to keep.
    7. the leveling order matter, or you may not be able to take all nature fighting
    8. tomes and stuff was only what i had.

    Conclusion: looks better than it plays. Wolf is probably better.

    suggestions are welcome.
