There are different setups that can work well. I found this working pretty well

(for pvm this is)


CoA ( 2*ed/ias ***)
Faith MB, ( GMB may be a better choice for you though)
Cats eye
Fortitude arch.
Crafted gloves, 10 cb, 5ll, life,res
String
Goblin toe
Raven/Dual leech ring.

With this setup i have max speed, decent dmg and leech, 30% CB, max res and so on....

holy crap dont use goblin toes. crushing blow is nerfed for rangers and you will literally be a sitting duck. use wartravs. or gores if you must have cb. i prefer knock back gloves on my gloves over blood gloves. LOH is a favorite of bowas worldwide. as for belt there are several better than string; razortail, nos coil, orphans (dual leech if you need it). as for helm, dont use CoA...just, no, dont... what bowzon in their right mind has 174freakin strength? the list of better helms (for a bowa) is huuuuuge; vampgaze, steelskull, andy, blackthorns has good stuff. if you're going to spend 20+ hrs on a helm for a bowa get a 45ias/ed% helm w/ life or frw (the frw one is so hot on a zon but sooooo very expensive and so very duped).

I just start my first bowzon a week ago. My initial setup was Sigon set and a 4os bow w/PS. Life wasn't easy as I mentioned in the other thread. When she reached late 30s, I switch to WWS w/2xShael. I leveled her at hell Chaos untill lvl 48 very fast and smooth. Then I started to arm her with some decent gears whenever possible.

I did NM with Rockstopper/Viper(+skill)/Lava(ias)/Razortail/Gobin(CB) and same WWS. It went well. Later on, when she reached 60s, I switched to Faith/gaint skull w/ias jewels/forti/Razor/LoH/Marrow/Cat's Eye. Life was sweet and smooth. For curiosity sake, I borrow three items from my bro and wow what a different....

When I switched the razor for Nosf and the Giant Skull for a 45ias/120ed Bone Visage and arm my merc a Pride CA, I realize ias Matter. So if you are looking for one of the best bowzon setup, I guess tis is a good reference. I am sure other with more experience may have even better setup and advice but these works for me.

equip wt instead of gores
bow skills aren't so important because you do weapon damage and not skill damage, so definitely you want loh here (a lot of monsters are demons including act bosses)

and maxdmg scs > psn scs when in pvm

well im gonna be doing more pvp than pvm i think so should i use psn?
either you use a lot of poison or no poison at all (i believe it conflicts with OW on gores)

and btw if you're going to do pvp then keep gores and get yourself 20ias/kb crafted gloves instead (i guess some ppl will call you bm because of that but without kb bowzons aren't very good duelers, almost everyone can just overrun you with brute force)

you should also use cat's eye, the 30frw is needed - you need to run... and run fast
