fire and ice zon

want to know if anyone try tis kinda build b4..

although i'm not looking speedy kill, but i still wan able to kill hell baal.

i still try to trade some rune for this build.. but i can "relocate" items into this zon.

20 fire arrow
10 exploding arrow
20 cold arrow
20 freezing arrow
1 in all passive (9)
4 in valk (should be 17+ when all +skill item in it)
1 in all other bow skill (6point without immo arrow)

with normal zon +skill item and ice/phoenix bow
freezing/exploding arrow as main attack backup with strafe
with phoenix redemption aura i hope to skip Insight and get infinity on my merc..

i have old FM zon back from 1.09, but the ice firepower just not enuff.
hope this one getting better...

Re: fire and ice zon

Hi,

Good advice from MuffinMan but you should also be OK with a Phoenix Bow as per your plan. I recently finished Hell using a 'Phoenixzon' - she is a hybrid fire/explosive arrow + Charged Strike / Lightning Fury build. She had Phoenix shield on switch too and she was fun to play. I've written a guide and should really upload it. Anyway, let me know how you get on - most people don't rate Phoenix in a bow as the Firestorm and lack of IAS are a pain but you can still get a decent attack speed if you use a Matri Bow and you get used to the Firestorm. Also, its nice to be different! if you decide to go for a bowazon then I would recommend trying a few combinatons of bows + merc items until you get the combination that works for you. Insight + Faith and Ice on switch works quite well - read MuffinMan's guide for more help on this.

Good luck

Re: fire and ice zon

hmm... good point.. if mob gone ice cube, there no point having redem aura. how about HoJ or Faith? does HoJ fire aura give boost to arrow?

key of the build is infinity merc 80% + bow 28% lower resist to cut the resist when got to hell.. if not infinity, then the dmg may got too low.. (thats the problem with my first zon btw.. level her as 1.09 FM... big mistake!)


now that i level this zon... vex rune such a pain to get..
