Javazon for Baal-running - Questions & opinions I've been studying at the Amazon forum, but I was still left with things to be covered. I'm making a Lightning Javazon for Baal-running, I'll be skipping the WSK and head straight for the Throne, I need to be able to kill Baal at P8 and most of his minions aswell. Skills I guess I should focus on getting CS as synergized as possible, I only have one question though - how important is Level 17 Valkyrie? Equipment I figured out most of it, but I have a few questions though. I have no clue about what boots to use, I'm thinking Goreriders just to help me versus LI's, Silkweave to solve mana issues, or rare ones adding resistances. As far as Armor goes I'm thinking of these: Duriel's Shell - Duriel's Shell frees up a ring slot and adds resistance and life bonuses. Skin of the Vipermagi - This covers the +1 skill lost from using Raven Frost and it adds a nice amount of resistances too - that's the choice I like the most. Lionheart - Well, in general I think it's a very good armor, but the stat-bonuses doesn't matter that much to me, and the other two adds resistances too - this will just cost me +1 skill. Baal - Can I kill him on P8 solely using Charged Strike and a Wand of Lower resist? Or would I need CB to do that? (In proper speed) Lightning Immunes - How should I deal with them? I see a couple of options: Jab: Demon's Arch/Tiamat's Rebuke, Ethereal Upgraded Hone-Sundan, Arioc's Needle, Witchwild String. I also thought about using Laying of Hands for 350% Damage to demons, is this worth my while versus LI Demons such as Bartuc? Mercenary I plan using a Might mercenary to speed up the killing of LI's - what do you think? I was thinking of making a Gloom for him too, I think the CtC Dim Vision will prove very useful versus nasty boss gloams - opinions? I think that would be it for now, I might add more in case I forgot something.
