    Merc:
    Might merc with Tomb Reaver, Gaze, and Shaftstop (Room for improvement here)

    Forges: Hel and Mal (I think...)

    No real great finds with this char yet.

    Future plans include Pit, Flayer Jungle, and Chaos Sanctuary runs. I really enjoyed this char alot. Bowzons have always been my favorite build in the game. I was a little let down by the damage she did. With Amp/Decrep it was pretty good but with out them it was pretty weak. I had trouble with Witches in the WSK and those Bull Warriros in one of the Frozen Passage (they spawned physical immune).

    I think I might try a Treachery armor at some point. I would like to see if Venom has much of an impact on dmg output. Any suggestions are welcome!

    Thanks for reading!:wave:

    EDIT: Cool! Lone Star State ftw!
    @ HC Gunther: She is twinked big time. Thanks for the congrats.
    @ OS: I was pleased when I was going through my stashes and found that ring. Thanks!
    @ Nagisa: I think 800 hp is going to be decent as long as I dont let anyone come melee me with amp or something. The FA is worthless imo. It doesnt do much more damage than my WWS's magic arrow and it sucks down my mana.

    Might as well make it three Texans in a row. Congrats on your guardian. I'm going to wild guess it is twinked, but I may be way out on a limb here...

    PS That is a sweet ring.

    Congrats! Going to also go out on that limb *hears snapping* and say this was twinked to the bone. ;).

    Pretty impressive with ~800 life and imperfect lightning resistance though. =). Was that FA any use in Hell? Looks like your duration was only a second or so.

    As far as I can remember, this is the first time I've seen a pat/mat/guardian with a socket dedicated to knockback. That alone is a :thumbsup: in my opinion.

    I'm sure there are more out there. My SC strafe zon used one of her socket quest to add Nef on her bow.

    @Gambitsreturn: Congrat for the guardian.

    If's either a Nef in the bow or hit power gloves, knockback works well on bowies.

    Congrats on the guardian :thumbsup: But you know that Strafe is limited to 3 frames server side, right?

    Re: Guardian #6 Gatling_Gun

    I agree that knockback is a great stat to have on a bowzon. Want to explain the strafe breakpoint for me? I know I had a slower attack at one point but I just couldn't let the illusion of a faster attack go... plus i use multi almost as much as I do strafe.

    What gear do y'all use on your pit strafers?

    Thanks for all the congrats!

    Re: Guardian #6 Gatling_Gun

    The German weapon speed calculator indicates strafe can reach 2 frames per attack (fpa) with a Diamond Bow with 90 additional IAS (it has 3 fpa without any additional IAS. This is wrong. T-hawk at the Amazon Basin did some testing to show that only the display happens at 2fpa, damage to monsters is actually done at 3fpa. So it looks like the attack is faster, with no actual difference to strafe result (your first and last arrows are still quicker, but that in itself isn't worth all the additional IAS, IMO.

    The IAS helps with multishot, so you're good there.

    Even though i congratulated you in my strafer thread i thought i should do it properly in your own thread. :tongue:

    Congratulations on a very nice Guardian. I especially like how you managed to spend so few points in Vit. Im actually a bit jealous since i chickened out with my strafer and put too many points in Vit :rolleyes:

    Nice MF-gear aswell!

    Thanks Cygnus, for clearing that up for me.

    Thank you again for the congrats Winmar and back at ya!

    Thanks Dave, look forward to reading a zon guardian thread from you in the future.

    I have done a few Pit runs and I think I'm starting to get a feel for the char. Almost lvl 84 now, wOoT!

    Nice, Strafers were my favorite when I started out. Whenever I find a Witchy, I'll definitely make one myself.
