    Could I make an enjoyable amazone with this weapon

    Demon arch balrog spear, about 100 pts average damage adding around 150 points of fire and lightening each hit, steals 9% life and replenishes quanity.

    Is it a good weapon, and what kind of ama could i make

    You will notice your skill choice would be the same as a titan wielding zon. ie lf/cf/pj etc. However, this weapon don't have the +2 to amazon skill and +2 to jav skill which a titan have that may greatly benefit those said skills.

    Yes you can, the additional elemental dmg will compensate for the lack of +2 skills somewhat. You might need two for ammo reasons too, only 80 isn't gonna cut it =P

    like already stated, your build will be the same as a javazon with titans.

    oh and i have 206%ed eth demon arches and 200%ed eth titans and
    no, the elemental dmg does not compensate for the advantages of the titans for several reasons:

    1) dmg is far less, even with the elemental dmg included because of the +2 to ALL amazon skills and +2 to ALL javalin skills, this should be enough to say that titans are better.
    3) small stack size compared to titans(although this is mainly only a problem for eths)
    2) maybe im wrong but, elemental dmg does not work with lightning fury (only close range attacks).
    3) again, just the +2 to all amazon skills will also help your passives/bow skills for the titans which makes it all the better.
    4) titans gives str and dex points
    ------
    nonetheless, demon arches are good javalins.

    oh i do realize that demons have some advantages over titans such as 30ias and potentially higher leech. But again, the advantages don't make it better than titans.

    I would say that an ethereal demon's arch would be better for a purely melee javazon (fend, jab but no lightning skills) instead of titans. Now if the titans are ethereal or upgraded well then titan just flat out beats any demons arch.

    I actually have the plus two to skills weapon mentioned. titsrevenge will be leveling this weekend and I just need to find an adequate build, matey sticky seems to be fine, i will just give my merc the elemental damage spear.

    I have a shaft stop, plus two skills glove (magic/passive) and an amulet. Along with 4 skills to jav is this amazone gonna cut it in nightmare/the pit.
