    amulet for a strafeazon

    i recently acquired a windforce, so i'm wondering which amulet i should use on her... the choice is basically between atmas scarab or highlords wrath...

    anyone got a recommendation?

    the rest of the gear i'm going to use will probably be a combination of mavina set stuff, dual leech ring/raven, laying of hands, nosferatus, gorerider....

    I opted for Cat's Eye to get down to a 9/2 attack w/ my Windforce.

    Do you have a way to deal with phys immunes? If so, then Highlords, otherwize Atmas.

    Atma's has amp damage which breaks physical immunities at 20% effectiveness
    A monster with exactly 100% physical resistance (just barely physical immune) which is amped will now have 80% physical resistance and be subjectable so physical damage again.

    Another great way to get our amp damage and still use your highlords is to use an amp damage or decrepify weapon on your merc. My lvl 80 Strafazon has that setup and can easily solo hell against phys immune monsters....with a maxed valk and a high lvl merc using this weapon u should have no problems.

    also you can get amp damage from using the lacerator unique throwing axe. FRENZIEDBOVINE taught us this, and I watched him use it the other night. Very interesting to see him weapon switch to some axes, toss em up, then weapon switch back to his bow.

    gg frenziedbovine.

    Unfortunately it's a sword so only usable by act5 merc. Though i suppose an ethereal upgraded vile husk would be a nice weapon for an act5 merc on a zon.

    Highlord's if you need the 20IAS to reach the 2 frame breakpoint. Cat's Eye as an alternate choice (though I find the combined FRW with Cat's and any unique boots to be overkill). If 20IAS isn't needed, then Mara's is a great choice.

    If you're relying on the merc to remove physical immunity, The Reaper's Toll will cast Decrepify.
