    a lot of choices

    Lionheart is a cheap and effective runeword
    Enigma
    duriel's shell
    Call to arm
    Gloom
    Stone

    Personally I would wear either duriel's shell or lionheart, the others are too expensive and enigma is kinda useless for a amazon since they have no FCR, but +R/W and +STR is pretty useful. Try to make the runwords are high d but low STR req armors (eg. Dusk Shroud, Great Hauberk, Wired Fleece, Archon Plate)

    ed/ias light armour ( archon plate, dusk shroud, wire fleece etc. ) with either of the following : life, fhr, dex .... hands down best armor for bowazon if you can afford it, otherwise just make 60%ias armor as to be effective you need to shoot fast :p

    peace.

    in my opionion

    in my opinion u should really go with duriels curias since that has good def and alot of resist bonuses plus requires little str.

    CHAINS ALL THE WAY
    it gives u 65% resist ... better than dureals shell (i think)
    it gives u str
    it gives u extra dmg
    it gives u high def
    it is the absolute best armor for any bow zon less ur mf then enigma is better

    Have to agree with the last few posters, Chains is definatley the best all around armor for a zon. If you want to do someting specific like MF or just like to teleport go for Enigma but your resists will suck. Same with speed armor, a speed zon is just not what she was in 09. Yes they are still a kick to play, but there speed no longer makes up for what they lack and you will find it hard to keep yourself alive unless you are limmiting yourself to a support role with groups of freinds, then speed still rocks.

    oO speed still is the most powerful weapon you have as a amazon, trust me i been playing them since very beginning of .09 and still are. i know what im talking about. get what you want out of chains out of charms! if you play amazons then you will know that you NEED speed!!! there is no other way! trust me ;). look WF has knocback so you dont get hit to much and if you are shooting fast you should never get hit! wf is a tank. why not make it like a super-tank by getting the need for speed! amazons can solo hell if you know how to play them......

    ...... this is my 10¢ take it or leave it


    peace.

    I agree 100%.....for s strafe zon its speeed speed speed................so i went ahead & socketed my WF with a sheal rune....now have 40% IAS on WF, 30 % IAS from sigons gloves/boots combo, 10% IAS from nosferatu coil belt, & 20% IAS from my upgraded twitch............ so thats 100% IAS in total.........nice & speedy!


    now I am lvl 75.....i am going to put the remainder of the skill points i get into the passive skills tree.........like valk, decoy, pierce.............

    I'm leaving it if you're talking about pvm. Yes, we all know that in pvp speed is what makes bowazons (do you see any experienced zon duelers walkin around with a buriza?), but in terms of pvm a reasonable shooting speed (9fpa for example) is perfectly fine, and will many times increase your killing speed for lack of having to sacrifice items to pump speed.
