    Matriarch Atanea, M'avina's Battle Hymn Magezon

    Atanea - 3.9 - HELL - Matriarch.jpg

    Matriarch achieved on: 2011-01-28

    Introduction
    Atanea is part of my Set Septumvirate but she was completed so long ago that I don't remember too much, luckily I have some screenshots that fill in some of the blanks.

    Theme
    Atanea is the name of a famous Amazon and her name means 'of the opposition'. I thought this was quite fitting as she used opposite elements of Fire and Ice.

    Journey
    I don't remember much, but from what I can piece together, Hell Duriel was tough, he took 15 full rejuvs for me and my merc!

    Atanea found a Verdungo's, +4/-4 Poison Facet, some Druid skillers, Captain's skiller, Sazabi's Ghost Liberator, a Pul rune, Tal Rasha's Lidless Eye & a Wizardspike.

    Pretty good hell forge drops - all useful.

    Very nice! I've been waiting to do a M'avina ever since Vidala's set. :)

    I went with FA/strafe for my Mavina zon. Kudos for using the fire arrow skills, which I've always been under the impression were pretty much toothless in late game.

    I remember building towards a M'avina zon at one point years ago while waiting for either the helm or bow (or both) to drop. I also went with FA/strafe IIRC. I had done a magezon before, and as @Noodle said, I was underwhelmed with the performance of Immolation Arrow. I imagine it's not as bad if you fully invest in the fire bow skills. It's not painfully slow, but it's no Meteor.

    I'm getting close to having this full set again and will probably end up building a Frostmaiden around it.

    I think Immolation Arrow was fairly decent with Pierce and Decoy to hold them in place, but yes, they are slow and the major issue is that the timers are so annoying - they really hamper the Fire, Poison and Valkyrie skills of the Amazon (in a general sense).

    These differences are further exposed when you have them paired with something that is fast and powerful.
    • Poison Javelin skills look bad compared to Lightning Fury
    • Fire Bow skills look bad next to Ice Bow skills
    I already had a Strafer so I wanted to be a full on Magezon in this build (or I did at the time, this is from 2011, yes I know I am very rapid at writing Mat/Pat threads :rolleyes:)
