    Bow for strafer

    After a long think I've deicded to remake my strafer from 09, dunno what to use though :eek:, what's a good strafer bow in 1.10, I don't really want to spend a small fortune on a Faith, thanks.

    Edit: On second thoughts, what's good equip to use in general :D.

    If you don't want runeword bows then your only other reasonable options are Windforce, Upgraded Lycander's, Upgraded GSA, Upgraded WWS (my fav), Upgraded Buriza (11/3.5 strafe ain't bad due to "next delay").

    Helm: Tal's Mask or Andy's Visage, maybe Delirium (no IAS though)
    Ammy: Highlord's or Cat's Eye, Atma's isn't good enough IMO due to lack of useful secondary mods
    Belt: Razortail for 100% pierce (65%+ skill) or nos coil to get another 10% IAS to hit a higher breakpoint
    Boots: War Travs, the +15-25 damage is godly when multiplied by things like dex, skills, might merc, etc. MF and stats are sweet as well.
    Gloves: Laying of Hands > Anything for pvm bowazons. +350% demon damage is awesome for worldstone runs or pit runs or chaos sanc as well.
    Armor: Chains of Honor, Duriel's Shell, Twitchthroe, Lionheart (awesome for its price), Duress, ed/ias armor, plain IAS armor

    For a +10 base speed bow 9/2 strafe is necessary for a nice killing speed, i think 9/2 for +10 base is 120% IAS

    For a 0 base speed bow 8/2 strafe on something like witchwild string (WWS) seems necessary in higher player # hell games, this also requires between 110 and 120% IAS, not sure.

    Gotta go with Windforce. Just got Faith, Brand, and Wraith on an Anni trade and all of them rock, pretty much in that order, especially with mercs Pride polearm & Fortitude armor.

    Faith rogue merc + your WF is best overall physical dmg & speed

    Pride merc polearm + your WF is best overall physical dmg, but need to add some equipment for speed, like Mavs helm with IAS jewel, Highlords, Nof's belt, LOH.

    WF is the way to go for a strafer.
