My new Rabies Druid

Hi all

Well since the 1.11 patch release I have been playing around with a bunch of new builds. Just started my first Windy Druid and I am now working on a rabies druid. I only decided to make a rabies druid since I have a litttle bit of gear for him to start out with. I am not really sure how to make a good rabies druid since there no longer is a carrion ring bug so please feel free to correct this setup of mine.

Skills
Rabies(max)
Poison Creeper(max)
Lycanthropy (max)
WereWolf (max)
Oak Sage (10 or whatever I have left)

Stats
Strength - 100(aiming for a spirit monarch shield but I can go storm shield if i get the consensus that its the better option)
Dex - Not much enough for Plague Bearer but not enough for max block (getting max block with spirit requires ALOT of dex but I dont know if ill need more to land rabies)
Vit- Rest
Energy- None

Gear (This is just the gear I have so far with the new ladder and all)
Weapon-Plague Bearer (may end up shaeling this)
Shield - Spirit Monarch (this may not be the best shield for this build so im open to suggestions and stat alterations)
Armor - Rain (the new runeword +2skills is ok since i dont have bramble)
Gloves - Trangs Gloves
Helm - Jalas
Belt - Verdungos
Amy - 3 to shapeshifitng (got angelics too and the rings)
Rings - Raven and Rare resists +strength ring
Boots - Sandstorm


Like I said i only made this build because i found all of this gear and thought a rabies druid would be feasible with all of this. Please feel free to give me suggestions on this. Also if I was to take this char to pvp how am i supposed to catch casters and should I try to get minionss. I know feral rage is an option for catching people due to the speed but I dont know if it will work.

Thanks

Rain may be a fake runeword so now i dont know what armor to give this build since i cant afford bramble. I didnt make the runeword yet to test it but I do have the pieces to make it. Dont want to waste good runes so can someone tell me if this is fake and if so what armor could i use in its place.
