    Bowazone

    Hello everybody,

    I'm new to diablo and i think i like the amazon.
    But i have a few questions.
    Which skills should I max, and which skills should I ignore.
    And what about the stats (strengt, dexerty etc)?
    I would like to use a bow, no javelins or spears.

    I hope someone can help me,
    Tim

    Mostly I would be playing solo or in a team against monsters.
    So no Player Vs Player.

    Well there's 2 basic builds: the bowazon and the javazon (and the spearazon if you're feeling adventurous) so 1st thing to do is choose! Both bowazon and javazon can be good, so long as you have right equipment. Javazon may be better if you can get your hands on a Titan's. A sorc might be a better bet 'cos they're less reliant on equipment.

    So, you wanna play a PvM bowazon.
    You can do as I did, create one and have a try of different skills. You'll then be able to choose the ones you like best and that you find efficient. You should play until you reach Hell for your test to be effective. This will let you create a new bowazon and plan its skills carefully.

    You can also rely on Strategy Guides to find out what subclass you can build. But I had some bad surprises, because some of them haven't been updated to the 1.10 patch. For example, it is said in what appears to be a very good guide that GA is a must because it works with Pierce. That's not true anymore.

    My advice is to try and choose what suits you !

    PS My personal experience makes me build a hybrid : strafe and LF. I'll see how this works...
    Btw, are you french ?

    Well with bowazons there's 4 main things you need. You need a decent bow with as much damage as possible, as much increased attack speed gear as possible, and then life and mana steal. As for skills I'd leave javalin skill tree alone, and don't got wild spending skill points. Strafe is worth pumping, and maybe frozen arrow but i'd leave everything at base in that tree until you know where the points should go. Put a few in critical strike, valk, dodge, evade and avoid, but not too many! and 1 each in pierce and penetrate to start with. Skill points: only put what you need into strength, prehaps save a few points for later. most should go into dex, and a few in vit, and leave energy alone!

    My first Mat. was a magazon. Bosses can be slow but they are a good build
