    has there been any kind of build that centers around crossbows? I have a hell rack and balista blizzard canon with Shael tunes in them both. It feels a shame to just let them sit. I hear crossbows are for experienced bowzons due to the slower fire rate in the xchange for more damage

    Before 1.10, the Buriza was a popular, cheap weapon for amazons (aka burizons). Since then, a Buriza is pretty good until the end of nightmare. I'm usually leveling my bowazons with a Buriza before they can wear Windforce or a Faith GMB. If you need a less rare weapon than that, I suggest an upgraded Witchwild String or Goldstrike Arch.

    Hellrack is just one mediocre elite weapons among a lot of others. It might be useful as a secondary weapon versus physical immune monsters, but it will either have (with Shael runes) a high str req or (with Hel runes) be pretty slow... or both, if you chose a different socketing. Besides, an amazon has several other options versus PIs, so it wouldn't be applicable for one anyway.

    I actually still like a Buriza as cheap option on cold bowazons. Packs quite a punch. Nothing like Faith, Windforce or Ice of course, but still ...
