    Finishing up Zon Build (help!)

    (I read the guides)

    I want this zon to be good enough for pvp, and versatile in pvm.

    So far I have max lightning fury, max charge strike, one in each of the passive/magic skills and 35 skill points left.

    I was wondering if I should dump the rest in poison/plague javalin, or get valkrie to lvl 17 and max lightning strike.

    The poison route would help with immunes i suppose, but from my understanding people said it is really slow. The maxing lighting strike would make my lightning skills nearly invincible and perhaps many 1-2 hit pk kills, and the valkrie would help a lot with pvm.

    What do you think? (btw I have about +7 skills)

    Please post from experience (like how your zon build was like, and what was good about it/bad about it/what you would have changed), not from hypothetical situations (which never seem to work in actuality).

    I have a slvl 91 lightning zon (MAX CS,LS,LF,Valk) build. It works wonders and only has troubles with lightning immunes.

    Physical immunes?
    HAH! Bow down to LF and CS.
    Dolls? Iron Maiden?
    Just have valk tank while ya retreat a little and shoot LF.
    Big boss? High hp monster?
    CS rules here!
    Mid size group that are far apart?
    Spam some LS, then hit it off with LF.

    Only probably would be Lightning immune monster. Carry a lower resist wand and hope that it removes the immunity. Else, use jab.

    Ah, thanks. DOes lower resist wand really remove immunities from monsters that have "Immune to Lightning", or does it just mean their natural resist is removed.

    Oh, and could you also please post your gear, stats, and significant charms/sockets? Thanks!

    Lower resist will remove immunity if their total resist is low enough, though they may still have high resists. Some of their natural resists is removed (could be all if its low enough) from normal monsters.

    Here are her stats and her equipment and charms.
    218 strength
    225 dexterity
    169 vitality
    47 energy
    75/75/82/75 resists

    Titans Revenge (ThunderStroke against the diablo clone).
    StormShield with a PDiamond
    Tal Rasha's Horadric Creast w/ a PTopaz
    Lionheart Scarab Husk
    20 resist all Saracen's Chance
    Laying of Hands
    SandStorm Trek
    Raven Frost
    Dwarf Star
    Thunder God's Vigor
    1/10/20/8 annihilus small charm
    Gheeds Grand charm
    Passive Grand charm
    various +life/+ resists charms/ + mf charms.
    lvl 2 wand of lower resists and bone shield of terror (weapon switch)

    Btw ya can get up to lvl 3 lower resists charges, but i haven't found one yet. Btw i have 145 stat pts left.

    i pumped to 20 LF and CS. Also have 17 (counting the bonuses) on valky, and im now increasing Strafe in the weapon switch to deal with LI. I use a not godly bow (lycander's), but its enough for killing LI while merc and valky tank them.

    If you dont like to have a bow, put a few points in the passives. Yes, i know that with +7 to skills you dont need it (i have the same). BUT your wally DOES need it. And (afaik) does not benefit from plus skills, only "hard" points (its a sinergy)
