    hybrid or pure bowazon pvp?

    Which one is a better "all around" dueler?

    The hybrid of the bowazon? If getting good gear isn't an issue.

    Also, could either build work as a "glass cannon"? Basically i want to put all points into dex, would this be optimal?

    A pure bowazon is the most popular build - and thus often the best build. I can't really remember seeing any hybrids except mystified who is trying one now.
    You could go with a poison/bow hybrid though I don't think that is the one you are referring to right?

    Note that a bowazon with one point lightning bolt/lightning fury and titans/ss on switch isn't a hybrid - atleast not for me, though some disagree - though it is the best build, and the one I'm referring too.

    P.S. what do you mean by better "all around" dueller? If you plan on pubing, then bowazon aren't good as they have little life, aren't very good against 7 other players - as one lucky hit might kill you - and they are totally annihilated by anyone using holy freeze, or any elemental aura for that matter.
    P.P.S. there is no reason to put all points in dex, putting some points in str is just very useful. You can go without points in vitality and it is done often, certainly for people who want a challenge. Other people swear to atleast 1k life, it's a choice you will have to make.

    I believe with my charms and gear I could easily pull off 1k+ hp while not putting any points into str and still be able to wear my gear.

    Utilizing the 1point wonders in the jav tree was what I was referring to as a hybrid, but what you said makes sense, its more or less a bowazon.

    The guide in the sticky said it was a hybrid :laugh:

    So this IS the better all around dueler? (i like the challenge of bowa's)

    A glass cannon isn't an allround dueler, really.

    There's no real "better" option for an allround dueler in terms of hybrid vs. pure bowa.

    The most important thing to consider when building an allround zon is to be able to tank hits. Like NASE said, you won't do well in public duels or against certain classes with a glass cannnon bowazon.

    well how much vita should I put? I figured my charms would suffice with base vit.

    If you don't plan on maxing out resists it should be enough. You'll at least survive things like iceblast/hurricane/thunderstorm.

    I dont see how I could get resistance without giving up dmg in charms.

    Also, should i go as far as lightning fury?

    even with a life build, bowazon suck at countering bm.

    P.S. don't forget you could prebuff with treachery for 60 extra res. That in combination with ss um'ed can help big time.
