    A good Bowazon will not have a hard time against the mentioned characters.

    Glass cannon zon will get crapped on by an equally skilled WW and a Maxblock Bone Necro

    If ur rich and can afford the best gear, then yes a bowzon does insane dmg pvp. I think my 8.5k life bvc dies to my friends bowzon in 4-5 hits.

    But aswell as a bowzon doing insane amounts of dmg, theyre relatively weak and can be taken down pretty easy by a good sorc, windy or bone necro.

    They're more of a novelty class, kinda like wolves. Most classes in the hands of an equally skilled char will beat a bowa, but they have several different tricks up their sleeves.

    I meant a good bowazon. Spamming arrows when you see a red cross on your mini-map isn't "good". A skilled bowazon will never let a Nec get close enough to decrep and prison.
    A Barb with Doomz will usually own a Zon though :undecided:

    never get close? a half/ decent nec with 125 fcr, max block, max dr, bone armor, clay golem can chase any zon and prison/ decrep them regardless of how "good"/ "fast" they are.

    I play hammerdin and, apart from other hammerdins, bowazons are probably the characters I have most trouble with. They do crazy damage and run around desyncing so fast you rarely catch them with a hammer. I would say bowazons are excellent characters to play pvp although I doubt they would stand a chance against an auradin since resists are hard to stack with a bowa.

    Re: bowazons good at pvp?

    Bowa's are an excellent match up and sometimes a lot better than some chars just like other classes have their match ups. I rarely have problems with sorcies and hdins. Then, "skilled" windies and smiters are prolly the next lvl of difficulty. And the above mentioned problem chars (bvc's and nec's) are hands down the hardest, but definately can be beat. Although, I've got a friend that has a bowa that beats bvc's 4 outta 5. But then I beat him 4 outta 5 in zvz. Depends on how you build them.
    As far as auradins, I love when they join...especially glitch auras. I throw on treachery, rising sun, dwarf and they're done. I love it. Confuses them so much when a bowa runs over glitched auradins. They're such scum :evil:.

    Re: bowazons good at pvp?

    According to ethug barbs and necs were no problems so I guess bowzon>all lol

    Personally I thought smiters were hardest, followed by necs, barbs and sins. What's the stats of your friends zon? Without pre-bo and amp+lt gear I can't see how barbs can lose more than 30-40% of the duels. Hear it all the time but never seen it :D

    Re: bowazons good at pvp?

    I’m not sure of his stats, I know he runs 1.5k life w/ titans/ss switch. And has some crazy frw. My bowa has 170 frw w/ titans and he out runs me.
    Anyways I think w/ lots of timely side stepping, desync, shield switches and dodge he rarely gets hit. The bowa’s name is Yulian on eastscl. My bvc who I’d say modestly was bit above avg. would get beat down by her.

    Re: bowazons good at pvp?

    I see. 1.5k life is just 1-2 good hits so try to namelock tele then whirl short in the direction he's running, rinse and repeat. Just keep whirls short and re-namelock mid-ww so you don't give him any time to switch to bow. 40 fcr with trangs/arach would probably be best here, 20fcr with dungos works too. Remember that zons can get 5k+ def when chilling armor triggers so use ravens and enchant if needed (enchant always helps vs all zons, the ar aside fire damage is lovely).

    Bow amazons have too much critical advantages and disadvantages with little mediums to balance out the overal character.

    Re: bowazons good at pvp?

    Bowazons are good in team dueling and pub with support like barb nec etc but in 1 v pub situations i dont rate them at all.

    I had a fairly well built glass zon a while back using 10/6x/38+ life gcs and sc with 3/1x/5frw etc and some decent gear and i spent most of my time in pubs dead, retrieving body and being nked.

    I know i was not top notch but i found as soon as someone had decent skills i pretty much lost easily to them. Most well built smiters creamed me and ofc decent barbs... oh and auradins raped me hard too..


    I personally think u have top be very skilled to hold ur own against "average or above average" duelers at best in pubs.
