    Could you recommend anything? :) I'd like her to be able to handle p8 hc solo untwinked with a way to kill immunes waster than 10min each :)
    I was thinking about Fishyzon, but I'm not sure whether it's optimal for this situation

    (I've posted a similar thread on Amazon forums, but focused on optimising Fishyzon, I hope that's ok. Also, I know here I can find SP experts which could not look too often on amazon forums)

    Thank you!

    I would indeed think a Fishyzon should be best. FA/Strafe or FA/Multi could also work, but you'd be very dependant on the bow you'd find for the Strafe / Multi part.

    there are very few builds in the game that can do what you are asking. any untwinked p8 solo game is going to be a rough ride, especially hc. a fishyzon with poison backup is probably your best chance. lower resist charges on wands are also recommended to speed things up. go full lightning until hell, then respec to balance lightning fury and pois jav. you must get pois very high to kill immunes though, like 10k at least.

    gear is all about life, resists, and +skills. +2 amaz skills jav and ammy, lore, peace, spirit are easy ways to boost your passive skills, which you need to stay alive. getting 20ias on gloves with +jav skills is also doable by shopping with anya. i prefer the speed over damage, especially with charged strike.

    get a holy freeze merc to help slow down the enemies.

    be very patient

    don't die

    I'd probably go with a LF/FA build. LF will kill non-immunes well enough using a cracked javelin after a few +skills items and there are one or two relatively cheap shield RWs (Rhyme and later, if you're lucky, Sanctuary) that allow you get max block to stay alive better.

    Freezing arrow works well for HC as it stops non-immunes and is much more dependable than the poison or fire skills. I'd spend synergy points here rather than on LF as they have a bigger impact on damage. Good use of decoys will be needed later in Hell to keep yourself alive when you have the bow out.

    Standard stat distribution (str/dex for items, rest in vita) - no need to try too hard to get high str/dex as you rely more on the affixes on items than the physical damage/defence. You'll need a massive amount of mana pots to sustain damage though on p8.

    No idea what a Fishyzon is either.
