    Bow decision - just to let you know.

    Hi guys!

    A couple of days ago I posted about my strafezon and what bow to use as her endgame weapon. I had just found Eaglehorn and wondered if it would be better than an upgraded Lycander's. Got a couple of good tips from you guys, thanks for that! :thumbsup:

    So after much item swapping, calculating and testing I decided to use this one:

    Eaglehorn
    Crusader Bow
    'Shael'
    Two-Hand Damage: 45 to 286
    Required Dexterity: 121
    Required Strength: 97
    Required Level: 69
    Bow Class - Fast Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 85
    Fingerprint: 0xd916b661
    +25 to Dexterity
    +200% Enhanced Damage
    +1 to Amazon Skill Levels
    20% Increased Attack Speed
    Ignore Target Defense
    +154% to Maximum Damage (Based on Character Level)
    +462 to Attack Rating (Based on Character Level)
    Socketed (1: 1 used)

    The rest of her setup is:
    Stealskull (PTopaz)
    Tal Rasha's Guardianship (PTopaz)
    Ghoul Grasp (Crafted Knockback gloves with 10%IAS, FR, +2 Passive)
    Goldwrap (upgraded)
    War traveler (47% MF)
    Highlord's Wrath
    Ravenfrost
    Nature's peace

    This gives her:
    10/3 Strafe
    60/47/75/19 resists
    ~300% MF

    I reached Matriarch status with her yesterday and will make her my primary pit runner. She never died and had it relatively easy in hell. The only problems I had came in Act 5: Stone skin Talic (He took SOOOOOO long to kill) and Baal (maybe I should have tried that crushing blow setup... oh well).

    Ok, keeping it short here. If you have still questions, feel free to ask.

    Thanks for the praise, guys. :)

    Yep, bowazons are not easy to get through the game but it's doable and fun as well!
    I wonder how javazons do in 1.10... any first hand experience anyone?

    I have played my 1.09 javazon a bit in 1.10. She killed most enemies efficiently, but high hp bosses and LI's are at least a slight problem.

    Good question! I actually think about starting an assassin. She is the only char class I never really liked but I'll give her another chance. :D
    For kicks I'll try to go untwinked as long as possible although I want to make use of the Natalya set I have on my 1.09 mules. So I probably twink her when I enter Hell difficulty.

    Oh 1.10... so many things to try! ;)

    Major oops!
    Entered Crazy Runner Guy's "What build next?" thread and thought we should tell what WE wanted to build next not what HE should build next! So I started writing about my new assy, submitted and THEN I saw it.:bonk:
    Well, I copied my text, deleted it and pasted it in here FYI.

    Her name is Nebula and she is going to be a Tiger Strike/Dragon Tail asn with support from Claws of Thunder und Phoenix Strike synergy. I haven't decided yet if I'm going Claw/Claw or Claw/Shield but I probably going dual-wield because I never tried that with martial arts (I had a C/C trapper in 1.09).

    Her rules: Untwinked through Normal and Nightmare. Full clear ALL THREE difficulties (every area - every monster!). I did that with my first 1.10 char - a Zealot - and it was a LOT of fun! :D I think that is one of the good things that came with the patch (for me at least) - the fun of really playing all the acts - no rush. It's great! :thumbsup:

    Nebula full-cleared everthing to the outer cloister waypoint and is clvl 14 right now.
