    Bowazon vs. Javazon PVP

    Now that guided arrow no longer pierces, thus eliminating the buriza (100% pierce) and guided arrow combo for pvp, is bowazon still a viable option for pvp? What replaces guided arrow now that it's no longer as useful as before. Any suggestions for a bowazon build or know a v1.10 guide that are still very good for pvp? Or are javazons simply better for pvp. i would like to know whether bowazons or javazons are best at pvp and which subclass? Thanks in advance for any responses.

    cs zons can do a lot of dmg and usually can get 1-2hit kills in pvp on their first duel. but most ppl usually have some sort of lightning resist stashed away along with a thundergod's vigor. it'll usually take 4-5 hits after gear and resists and if your opponent is any good, that's enough time for them to kill your zon.

    i personally have a ladder hybrid zon with 1 pt into jab. i switch to shield/jav when i'm being charged and i jab away. with my dmg setup, if i don't get charged locked, i'll be able to get them a good ways down. and when they retreat, i'll shoot em.

    bowazons can make great mid lvl duelers. at around lvl 45, with max ga, 14-15 into crtical stike, points into passives, and lots of +max charms, you'll be able to kill lvl 70-80 characters if you play smart. you'll grab the regular sorc ear if they don't hug. (norm-nightmare)
