not sure which one to pick fpr my druid. Please debate the pros and cons of each and which is better for pvp and boss runs or suggest a better druid build. Thanks in advance

Its a matter of speed vs power. Its also a matter of your equipment.

Werebear
Faster attack rates
More life
More defense
Better AoE CC
Looks WAY cooler

Werewolf
Runs faster?
Better attack rating
Fury is like Zeal for lazy melee players?
Rabies is kick ass

IMO Werebear trumps Werewolf. The ONLY time I'd go with Werewolf over Werebear is if I wanted to play with Rabies. Which is rare.

The Werewolf gets IAS and AR each level, where the Werebear gets defence and damage. The bear does have a 25% extra life bonus, but most of your life bonus is going to come from Lycanthropy, which is the same for both. (140% for WW and 165% for WB at level 20) Each has its own charge attack which add different bonuses. The wolf gets faster walk/run, life leach, damage and AR. The bear gets stun, more damage, and AR.

To me, the Werebear's damage edge is kind of washed by Fury which adds 423% at 20, and hits much faster. (Compared to 443% with level 20 Bear and fully-charged level 20 Maul) Lots of builds do use the bear because of Shockwave, which can stun-lock enemies.

So, in my opinion, the wolf wins out for straight damage, while the bear is best for crowd-control.

That would make sense, except bears have a faster attacks, even factoring in Fury >.>
