Re: Can someone help me?

Fortitude, Smoke, Lionheart or keep the CoH you're using.
Might merc
Valk(you are using a Valk, right?)
2 x Ravenfrost rings(for the dex and cannot be frozen)
Razortail belt, Nos coil, String of ears etc.
Put 2 Shaels in your bow and upgrade it at some point.
A lot of boots will work (I use waterwalks)
Use Cat's Eye instead of that highlord's

Go over this guide. :thumbsup: The Amazon Forum.

Your gear pretty much explains everyhing. There should be a Bowazon guide in the Amazon Guides Section.

I assume that you are playing on Europe because of timezones, as that's important regarding what to trade for what else.

1. Sell that BK ring. Strafers don't need any +skills. It should be possible to get a WF with shael, a dual leech ring and Andy's Visage with Ral for it.
2. Sell CoH for Fortitude+Ist (if you are on non-ladder, Fortitude will be a bit more expensive).
3. Belt=Razortail, together with having 67+% on the pierce skill
4. Boots=Goreriders. CB won't do much good on a strafer, but you should have at least a bit of it.
5. Amulet=Atma's (for its ctc amp, very useful versus PIs)
6. Ring #2=Ravenfrost
7. Charms: Go for maximum resists, in this order: Fire, lightning, cold, poison.

Skills: Max Strafe, max valk, max penetrate, enough in pierce for 67% (to have 100% with Razortail) enough in D/A/E, so that further skill poins in there will only add another 2%, perhaps a few points in MS to have an alternative when you get strafelocked from massive missile fire (e.g. blowgun flayers) and GA to have an easier time versus tough bosses (also saves mana versus Diablo).

I'm using a strafer like that and she soloed everything in a 3 player game with no help. I make Diablo runs with her regularly and sometimes I'm also doing solo Baal runs (although I just do the minions because killing Baal takes too long).

If you can afford Faith, don't invest anything into penetrate except for one point for being a prereq for pierce, as that bow has ITD (and you are using GA versus tough bosses anyway). In that case you will have enough points to make her a hybrid by maxing LF.
