    Low/mid lv gear set ups?

    Howdy all!
    After reading the many excellent posts and guides in this (if I may be so bold) awesome forum. I have a pretty clear picture of what my finished Bowie is going to look like. Not sure exactly, mind you, but have an end goal similar to other builds i see here and in the guides at the top of the page.
    What I am hoping to get from you folks is some insight into what gear set ups you're using while levelling up. ie: I know Tals mask is part of my end game gear but whats a good helm to use lets say lv20-66.
    So there it is. What are some set ups you guys use to lv your chars? Lets say lv1-30 and mid game before your end set?
    My bowie will be at the end, a WWS based strafer with all end game goodies I have found, and to start she will be wearing the Artic furs set. As for what to look for and wear in between I have no clue.
    Cheers guys! (cant wait to let loose my first volley!!!)

    I like to use low level sets:

    Death set gloves and sash
    Sigon set gloves, belt, boots
    Angelic set ammy and ring(s)
    Irathas set all if you want maxed resists

    Other low level equipment:
    Twiththroe or Stealth armor
    Biggins Bonnet helm
    Bloodfist gloves
    Low level rare boots or Hotspur
    Low level rare belt or Snakecord
    Manald Heal ring
    Eye of Etlich amulet

    Mid-level upgrades:
    Lionheart armor
    Rockstopper/Stealskull helms
    Razortail belt
    War Traveler boots
    Ravenfrost ring
    Cats Eye amulet
    Riphook/WWS bows
    Edge/Harmony bows

    As to a bow, I find a Hunter or Composite Bow with 3 open sockets which are filled with chipped/flawed/normal sapphire/topaz/ruby/emeralds will take you a long way.

    Arctic is a great starter set. The cold damage on it will keep the monsters chilled and your zon alive. Lycanders is a good mid game bow. I have used Blood Ravens Charge mid game, as well as Goldstrike Arch, too. Buriza has good damage but is not an end game bow. If you can get the full Mav's set it is rather nice. But the Faith Bow seems to be the bow of choice lately around here.

    Look for IAS gear because you'll want to hit the last BP (see the sticky above).

    heres my usual progression:

    start out with whatever i can find, including buying a 3os hunters bow or someting and chipping it

    low level twinkage:

    helm - sig (partial bonus gives nice ar i think?)
    ammy - angelic
    bow - 6 flawless topazd long war bow, changes to 6 ortd later
    ring 1 - angelic
    ring 2 - manald
    armor - angelic
    gloves - sig
    belt - sig
    boots - sig

    mid level:

    helm - peasant crown
    ammy - a nice rare i have with skills and res
    bow - lycanders at 42 (usually i norm baal to 45)
    armor - lionheart
    ring 1 - raven
    ring 2 - raven
    gloves - sanders or magnus
    belt - razortail usu.
    boots - waterwalks

    lycanders gets me thru nm easy :)

    Here's mine.

    Different for melee and magic. The reason is due to the Str req for Sigon which is rather high for you to be investing if you are going magic.

    Melee
    Full sigon set
    Cathan's ring x 2
    Manald Heal, replace 1 of your cathan's at level 15.
    Some crappy +energy or mana ammy
    Some sword with lots of socket for gems. Usually you can get one at Act 2

    Magic
    Bloodfist
    Cathan's Mesh
    Lenymo or Hsaru's Iron Stay or Infernal Belt
    Vidala's Fetlock or Treads of Chton
    Some crappy 2 socket helm with 2 flawed sapphires inside.
    Some crappy shield or Pelta Lunata.
    Long Bow with 3 sockets. Doesn't matter if you are an amazon or not, since you will use that bow to plink away at stuff while your mana regenerates. If you are a necro, you will plink away while your skells take them out.
