FA does not depend on dexterity to do most of its damage and its arrows don't even have to hit, so if that is your main skill getting plus skills is important. Strafe damage depends very much on dexterity as it is added as %ehanced damage at 1% per point in dexterity, also strafe needs to actually hit with the arrows so the bonus to AR from pumping dexterity is vital if that is your main skill.

I am not really sure about dexterity for a FA based zon since I've never played one in 1.10. My Sniperzon (Strafe and MA) has 365 dexterity (including equipment) at level 86 and the chance to hit varies in the Pit (where monsters are from level 85 to ** for bosses) from 80% to maybe 92% and that is an acceptable range.

So in summary you need to think of getting at least 300 dexterity by level 80 if you want strafe to be effective against the cold immunes in Hell. Once you have about 100 points in Vitality (for softcore, hardcore might want more) and enough strength for you chosen bow there really is nothing else a Zon needs.

Whereas that is true, you will still need to have good mana leech if you are going to use elemental skills continuously or you run out of mana very quickly. What you can do to prevent that is to use the classic magazon type tactics involving a high mana pool, mana regeneration gear and mana per kill gear.

Depends on what you prefer really. I always have thawing, antidotes, town portals and stamina in my belt :).
