    Character was pretty easy for most of the game I spent about 30 points to many in str due to not planning well enough and not having all the gear. Main problems I encountered were the hell ancients as expected I hd to re-roll a few times but once I manage to kill the whirler they were easy. Also amazons block rate with non javalin weapons blows. =(

    I was surprised to find that in most situations I preferred CS to LF.

    A big thanks to silospen for the mara's and harle for this character and to nebux for the thresher to put insight in. From here on she will probably spend her time wholesale slaughtering cows.

    No notable finds which isn't surprising with only 50% MF. NM hell forge gave me a pul and hell gave me a ko.

    Nice build and congrats!

    I'd like a little info if I may. :grin: I'm currently making a LF/CS zon and wouldn't mind a few tips.

    1. Were there any particular superunique that were (could be?) kinda difficult?
    2. How is the mana regen (or leach?) without Insight?
    3. NDE's or Deaths, and what they were due to? (Including lack of caution/human misjudgement.)
    4. What were the reasons behind preferring CS to LF? General style or lack of danger, or other etc.?
    5. Did you feel you'd like a Valk/Decoy?

    Again congrats! :thumbsup: and thanks for any advice you could give.

    Dryst

    There's just something very satisfying about pure lightning Javazons...

    CS is a great skill.

    If you so desire, you still have enough skill points remaining to get your Valk to slvl 17-ish (after +skills).

    Congrats.

    Suiling against LI's it was mostly jab and merc damage since he does 500-2k if it was something with high physical resistance that wouldn't block lock me I would switch to glimmershred.

    1) I didn't really find any of the super uniques difficult the council was a pain since they spawned with a healer(his minions are li as well) in the room and they killed my merc quick. So I had to lure them out. Ancients were troublesome as well but thats expected only the whirler was really dangerous so I just made sure he wasn't LI and killed him first took a long time though. Gloams in general are annoying more because they kill my merc quickly and take forever to kill rather then any real danger.

    2) Through most of the game silkweaves as my boots and 5-10% mana leech was sufficient to keep my bulb full. I haven't really tried hell without insight except cows and I drain my mana pretty quick against them. But I just drink a pot.

    3) I had two deaths one was to iron maiden early in the game and the other was due to my carlesness more then anything. I was in hell act 2 and I had yet to spend any points in vitality(I had something like 170 points spare) and I got killed by a couple of snakes charging me.

    4) I prefered CS to LF because if just kills most things faster. Except for extremely large packs CS will tear everything apart. I found CS to kill about 6 times faster in most situations.

    5) The only place I actually wanted a valk was the ancients and council. Now that I've finished the game I don't even use the merc anymore since they just get in the way of my cow herding. Getting a valk depends on what your aiming for sure I would of been safer with one but I was aiming for max killing power more then anything. I can still get valk now if I want and I might if I decide to use her for running baal. Which I could do I've found cows to be rather dissapointing LK superchest runs have been a more effective place to get runes, jewels, gems, charms etc so far. As for decoy I've never really used decoy to be honest early game it's not needed and late I tend to just resummon a valk in my experiance(this is from past experiance with amazons).
