Team Dueling 7. Credits 1. Introduction My account name is *TienJe on USWest, and I've had a zon in my PvP arsenal since early 1.09. I play legit characters, so I won't be considering hacked items in this guide. I'm always free to duel or to answer questions. With the coming of 1.10 and the Enigma runeword, Zons became the prey in PvP. Zons cannot effectively function with the Enigma armor, as they need the damage and IAS to maintain good attack speed. Without teleport, they became the slowest of all characters, and with the other characters beginning to teleport, it was hard for the Zon to keep up. However, even in 1.11, the Zon stays at the top of the damage output ladder. Faith bow shooting at 7 FPA has one of the highest damages in the game. The task now is for the Zon to learn to dodge attacks and play the role of the prey. If the Zon is built correctly and under the hands of a good dueler, it is still very versatile and impressive. So, this hybrid zon seeks to combine the power of the faith bow with the protection and effectiveness of the one point wonders of the javelin tab. 2. Stat Allocation Starting Stats Strength- 20 Dexterity- 25 Vitality- 20 Energy- 15 Hit Points- 50 Stamina- 84 Mana- 15 Per level Life +2 Stamina +1 Mana +1.5 Stat Bonuses STR- adds damage for javelin attacks and allows for wearing equipment DEX- adds arrow damage, adds attack rating, and allows for wearing equipment. VIT- adds life ENG- adds mana 1 Vitality point gives 3 Life 1 Vitality point gives 1 Stamina 1 Energy point gives 1.5 Mana Placing Stats Stat allocation for a Zon is very elemental to her success. Zons, in order to survive, must have very good damage output, as that is their strength; survivability is not the Zon’s forte. In order to have a high damage, points into Vitality will have to be skipped. Thus, stat allocation for a Hybrid Zon is all about balancing the DEX/VIT ratio. Since this depends on your charm and equipment setups, make sure you pick your equipment and get your charms all situated with the right balance of life/FRW/FHR before placing stats. After spending the points into STR to wear all the equipment, aim for 1.4-1.5k life (including equipment and charms and not including Battle Orders), and then pump the rest into DEX. There are also the glass cannon Zons, which go pure DEX, and the tank Zons, which go purely for VIT. I would choose glass cannon over the tank any day, but I still think a balanced build (~1.4k life) is the best bet. And of course, no Energy, even though Multishot will suck your mana dry.
