    I am planning to make a hybrid javazon also, but instead of the skills and items you used, I will make that as following:

    1 guided arrow
    17 Valkyrie (w/ items, add more at last)
    20 Lighting Fury
    20 Lighting Strike (syn for CS)
    20 Charged Strike
    75% piece (w/ items)
    Rest in rerequisites and passives

    Items:
    Windforce /w SHAEL
    Eth Titan's Revenge /w SHAEL
    Storm Shield /w UM or P.D
    Shako /w P.T
    Tal's armor /w P.T
    Laying of Hands
    War Traveler
    upg Gold Wrap
    Highload's Wraith
    Raven Frost
    Dual leech rare ring

    Stats:
    134 str for wf (I don't think there is a problem to equip SS with a good unique sc)
    enough dex for 75% block
    rest in vita
    none in mana

    Act2 Might or Holy freeze, depends on your style

    Because you will use CS to finish single non LI or boss, you will be in close combat sometimes, so high resis/high blocking/more life would be necessary in this build. With the above equips, you can achieve those goals.

    On the other hand, because of the low dex, you will get a bad chance of hiiting mons with wf using strafe. So I prefer using guided arrow as it always hit for normal mons (is it always hit for champs also?). More over, for the IAS, the amulet, gloves, and belt offer you 50% IAS, with the 40% more in wf, you can get to 9/3 b.p for guided arrow and 70% IAS with titans's on, not a bad speed for shooting I think.

    In addition, the mf provided with those equips would make you easy to reach 300% mf if you collect some more mf charms(greed or other sc).

    Other opinions?^^

    also one more possible way to deal with Black souls...
    Try to get a unqiue rune bow (magewraith?) and upgrade it
    the most important function of it is blinding target
    and free guided arrow (maybe consider to use it over wf?^^")

    just shoot the souls until they blinded
    and then get close to them...jab jab jab..................

    btw, you can use the runewords bow also^^
    but this bow must be cheaper than that~ha

    Unless you are using witchwild string (1% deadly strike per level), strafe is NOTHING without a significant amount of critical strike skill, may as well not even use the skill.

    i think if you are going hybrid a
    20lf
    20strafe
    17valk
    using razortail
    10 crit strike
    as many as you can manage into charged strike
    only 1 with +skills would be needed for pierce
    i think it would be better to go for more the bowazon route with this type of hybrid seeing as using lf and cs dont require much else but titans and mosers yet a successful bowazon needs a great deal or ar and crit strike, as was stated above.
    then nearly all the gear could be towards bowazon ie. 350+ dex atleast 90ias.
    when your in shield mode and only up against 1 big monster your usually pretty safe anyways.
    basically the 20 lf 20cs is just a substitute for 20 ca 20 frozen arrow, much much more effective imo.

    You need a better rare groves ,eg 2 skills /20 ias, leech etc
    I suggest cat's eye for quest and highlord for baal run, if you are really bad in resistance then Mara. I have a 29 mara but I love cat'eye more for its faster run/walk and 20 ias.

    For Black souls e.g baal run. I equiped with t-gods, high lord, stormshield and some lr sc, my lr is 85(86). I pop a decoy before me and run in and flash a slow missile then run back and strafe, then jab the stray ghost.

    This just does not make any sense :surprise: ... since a WF will already do much more than TWICE the damage of a WWS anyway who needs DS? But he is putting points into passives and at least one point in CS (with + skills) will give a good return. And if he used Highlords (instead of Mara's) and the Goreriders he would have a nice amount of DS and CS. So WF will blow a silly little WWS out of the water in raw damage terms. The main problem for a WF, or a WWS with this set up and skill placement, will be a low AR and hence hitting things in Hell, particularly if they are higher level than the amazon. So something needs to done about increasing AR and points in Penetrate are an obvious way.

    His equipment set up is powerful but could be slow if he doesn't use the LOH option and socket the WF and armor or helm with IAS jewels / shael. He needs to get 80%IAS for the key 9/3 strafe speed which is not difficult. I guess reaching 120% IAS for 9/2 strafe would be too much of a stretch.
