    Default Best forms for wildshape

    I am playing a build plannign to become a warrior-type using wildshape. He is currently barbarian1/druid 2, so it will take a while until he can fulfill his primary purpose. I am planning to take Master of many forms as soon as i can. He will probably be played through so that he gets to at least mid-level.
    So, I'm wondering, what are the best wildshape forms at each level?
    I have access to: MM, MM2, Complete series, ToM, Dragon Magic, Savage Species, Lords of Madness, but not much else. I might be able to get hold of MM4, 5, or Fiend Folio.

    Druid handbook contains a nifty list of different forms for different purposes.

    Master of Many Forms Bible and Druid Handbook are good resources for this.

    If you are planning going a melee focused wildshaper, a wildshape ranger/MotMF is better than druid (since druid/MotMF looses spell casting, which is the best asset of the druid)

    but if you havel already started playing this character.... I hear War-troll (MM III I think) has great stats, Fleshraker and other pouncing animals are also great.

    I'm a fan of Dagger Spell Shaper myself. Adding enchantments to your natural attacks is nice.
