    So, I'll post a pic of my stats and skills and list everything I'm using! Let me know how I'm doing! Thanks in advance ♡ okay my photos are too large to embed :( so here goes typing this all out lol

    Level 49 Class Amazon-bow

    strength 81
    Dexterity 100
    Vitality 77
    Energy ***

    Ice Arrow Damage (poison too from charms) 280 - 369

    Life 348

    Mana 212

    Fire Resistance 72
    Cold 75

    Poison 75

    whew okay on to skills...

    Passive and Magic

    Nothing in any other bow skills.... :/

    Soooo, I defeat baal
    with ease. Although it take maybe 5 to 8 minutes... I feel strong, but feel like maybe I put too many points into strength or Idk... I also wish she was a but faster. Also, the cold arrow route eats mana but I'm managing well enough I'm just back and fourth sometimes getting potions, although I have a belt with 16 slots. With baal I usually have to go back once in the middle sometimes 3 times depending but I'm trigger cautious and hut often to avoid dying. I feel like I'm a novice and maybe even more advanced.... I'm not really sure.

    I'm not even sure anyone will ever read this lol.But I went into nightmare and reset skills/stats.... I read up on frost maidens skill set but I'm floundering here. I sunk 13 points into straff but can't for the life of me justify it's use if I'm using freezing arrow... would I switch to straff upon encountering non freezable enemies and bosses? I also left only one point in ice arrow and instead sunk points into cold arrow... I'm only slightly stronger and put the majority of my stat points in dexterity and a lot less in energy, which I was very reluctant to do . It seems likes with the new skill/stay set I can one hit most monsters in a group with the higher feeling arrow points... but cold arrow even with 13 in it doesn't seem as strong as ice arrow... I'm afraid I'm going to get killed really easily now lol. ahhh well might as well give it a try and get a feel for it. I wonder how I'd do against baal now. it was really easy with the first skill/stat set I had, I could kill him in about 5 minutes and blew through his champion monster hordes... wonder how I'd fare now.... lol anyways of anyone ever reads this and ha's any advice, I would love to hear it! Thanks ♡

    Your post is kind of confusing, and I get the impression that you're a bit confused yourself. I'm not sure why you'd go to the trouble of detailing everything about your gear down to the specific runes and gems you've found along the way and yet still not provide anything about the weapon you're using.

    I don't know what "***" is supposed to mean for Energy. Does that mean that you are putting points into Energy, or that you're not?

    To survive in Nightmare, and especially Hell, you're going to have to deal with monsters that have immunity to whatever your main form of damage is. You seem to be going for physical damage (Strafe) and cold damage (Freezing Arrow), which is good. But the safest option might be Guided Arrow, because it's easy to hit from very far away and with Slow Missiles, you can ensure that ranged monsters aren't really hitting you back.

    I agree with Namtar - your weapon is a key piece of information.

    I currently have three Frozen Arrow / Strafazons that I've leveled into the mid 90's. It's one of my favorite characters to play. Some of my thoughts:

    - Assuming you can get decent life and mana leach, strafe can be very useful for leeching and filling your red and blue bulbs. It can make the use of potions pretty rare.

    - I usually enter Nightmare around level 45, and Hell between level 75 - 80, so you're about where you want to be.

    - I like to use an Act 2 Nightmare mercenary, which gives you and him the Might aura. This will increase your strafe damage and the mercenary's damage, allowing each of you to leech more. Lifeleech and a decent weapon go a long way towards keeping a merc alive.

    - Decoy is invaluable for scouting ahead - cast it at the edge of the screen in the direction you wish to move, and see if it's attacked. Strafe can also be used for scouting.

    - A good Valkyrie can tank very well, and even kill stuff in Hell. Ideally, you want her to be at level 17 (after +skills from gear.). This will equip her with a rare war pike, which can do nice damage.

    - Regardless of your main weapon, if you can get your hands on a Witchwild String bow you may wish to consider keeping it on switch. When you use the normal attack with it, it actually fires level 20 Magic Arrows. These will do magic damage, and are useful against monsters that are immune to physical and / or cold damage.

    Are you playing on Battle.net, or Single Player? If Single Player, I may be able to help you out with some gear upgrades.

    Most of all, enjoy the game!

    When items disappear for no apparent reason, it's generally because they were dupes.

    Items that were duplicated (hacked), thus violating the End User Licensing Agreement. I assume you play online, where a significant amount of items are duped. It's one of the primary reasons why most of the people around here prefer to play Single Player only, so that they can ensure they're not using illegitimate items. Items generally have a unique fingerprint, which Blizzard can use to tell when an item is a duplicate. Duped items periodically get noticed and *poof* into electronic dust.

    PlugY is not accepted here. What you do on your own machine is entirely up to you, of course, but use of non-forum accepted mod's such as PlugY will prevent you from multiplaying or trading with other forum members. Thyiad, the Single Player Forum moderator, has put together comprehensive guidelines: https://www.diabloii.net/forums/threads/read-this-first-single-player-forum-guide-2016-wip.933479/ She's extraordinarily helpful, and should be able to answer any questions you may have.

    If you download Atma or GoMule, both of which are happily accepted here, you effectively get an unlimited stash. They're both fantastic, and I highly recommend them. I prefer Atma myself, although GoMule is probably more widely used. I have literally thousands of items saved.

    Sure! Atma can be found here: http://atma.incgamers.com/ GoMule can be downloaded here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/gomule/?source=typ_redirect . There's a support thread in our Single Player Forum here: https://www.diabloii.net/forums/threads/game-changes-help-thread-inc-atma-gomule.849306/

    Basically, you load your .D2s files, which are your characters. You can create a stash (which is a .d2x file) and drag and drop items between characters or in and out of your stash. Atma even has a bank to hold unlimited gold, and a drop calculator so you can figure out the most likely target to drop a specific item. It's addicting!

    Once you get either Atma or GoMule running, please let me know. I'd be happy to e-mail you a stash with some good bowazon gear and help you get equipped.

    Cheers!

    Extract it and open it, then click on File and load .d2s. That will allow you to add your characters. You're really close!
