What do you use your ama for?
(and what type of amazon you use for it>)
i use my bow ama for cows and pvp...he can handle both pretty good .cowswith might merc and insight.
I use mine for cowing mainly and only right now.
I once starded an bowama but she became a mule after en item drop.
I use my bowazon for CS+Diablo and WSK+Baal minion runs and sometimes I'm cowing with her. I skip Baal himself because he needs a zillion arrows and a lot of running to kill him, even though she wears Goreriders. However, I invested a lot on her, Faith+Fortitude and no MF stuff (not even Gheed's) and I'm satisfied with 9/2 strafing, so I can concentrate on resists instead of speed, else Diablo himself and running/shooting through the WSK would be too deadly. My old ladder season WF zon with some MF gear was good enough for 1-2 player pits and CS without Diablo.
I can easily manage 8pl Pit runs, Flayer runs and Lower kurast runs with just using Pride and Faith with all mf gear (Tal's armor, Gheeds gc, goldwrap, wt, 7mf scs for a total of ~300 mf). Solo CS runs are fully playable in 8pl but I have to equip Fortitude instead of Tal's, losing **%mf in the process.
I rarely do solo Baal runs and Cow runs... so can't comment on that.
Kicking some Sorc and templars - the best purpose for Ama using bow :clap:
My Palazon is primarily a Baalrunner. 60% Dodge means she hardly ever takes a hit and the ability to go Berserk on Lister is pure joy, especially when she has a 5.1k Berserk like last game (and 4.5k Zeal woo hoo!). I frequently get up to make coffee while Minions spawn on top of her, safe in the knowledge that she won't die.
I also use her as a runehunter in Pits, Tower and Kurast because she has 0% mf (except for when she equips Gheeds to fix her superior Fortitude...). A Sorc is faster but not as much fun.
She's also good at pissing off smart arse pkers, her ability to kill them is based on luck because they always have CtA and therefore at least 3 times my life, but they get frustrated when they can't hit her. It's especially funny to see a Pala with lvl 30 Zeal die at the hands of my paltry lvl 7 Zeal, but it must be downright humiliating when I Berserk them to death with 0% def (which doesn't happen often, but has happened ). But, as I said, it's all luck in pvp, it all depends on if I can Dodge long enough to land a few hits and hope OW and CS/DS kick in at the right time.
i pit / chaos sanc / wsk with my multi and java
maybe some nm cows for crafting supplies, or hell cows for fun. :O
So many answers, keep em coming
Is there anyone that uses his li java for CS/Baal runs? Or is this ipossible with no uber-equip?
I didnt know the pits where good for rune-hunting :teeth: (<---nice smily^^)
It seems Bow users have taken over this place!
P.S. What is a palazon?
Palazon= max passives zon using a passion for zeal :lol:
I do. My uber-equipment super cool power tech, is a level 1 strafe and Frozen Arrow with Eaglehorn on switch, takes care of those persky LIs just fine.
(sometimes I use upgraded buritto, just for kicks - don't ask why I got that high str)
Seeing baal die in less than a second is always a joy. :thumbsup:
Or same using Vengeance from Kingslayer.
Last night I was in a Baalrun and between my Merc's Might Aura and two nearby Paladins with Concentration and Fanaticism I had a 5.6k Zeal :thumbsup: and 6k Berserk :clap: and that was without a Heart of Wolverine too. Sweeeet....
My LF/CS zon is a Cow killer. My strafer/multi/FA/ Max Valk-azon (heh) is a Chaos Runner.
lol i have a pure lightning zon for basicaly everythin. rushing..baal runs, countess, cows and even dueling..(not great tho)
I use my LF zons for MF in the cow level, doing act5 super uniques, etc.
For rush/PA, only in Norm/NM might I use my Javazons. But most of the time they are too slow. They also lack the ability to "nail" down super bosses to prevent them from harming your rushees (I am used to playing HC, so it makes absolutely no sense to let your level 1 rushees die in Hell)
All other builds are good for having fun.
