    Matriarch Auril - FA Zon

    After 2 months I finally got my FA Zon to Matriarch status. It took me 2 months, because I didn't have a lot of time to play D2. Playing this build was a lot of fun, every monster that wasn't Cold Immune was either frozen or shattered upon sight. I only died twice, once to Normal Duriel and once to an enormous pack of Bone (or Tomb) Vipers inside Nihlathak's Temple (the poison clouds they fire also do lightning damage... ouch...) on Nightmare difficulty. The battle with Hell Baal was the toughest one of them all; it took me ~30 minutes to kill him, because he kept on casting clones and draining my mana.
    The Ancients on Hell were easier than I expected: although I was chased by Madawc ánd Korlic, there was no FE Ancient so I could simply use a hit-and-run technique while my Valkyrie kept Talic busy. After Korlic was dead, the other 2 were easy.

    STATS:

    Strength: 122 (63)
    Dexterity: 363 (273)
    Vitality: 164 (150)
    Energy: Base

    Resistances in Hell:
    Fire: 72%
    Cold: 49%
    Lightning: 72%
    Poison: 75%

    EQUIPMENT:

    Helm, Weapon, Armor, Belt and Gloves: M'avina's Battle Hymn. I socketed the bow with a perfect Cold Facet. This really is an awesome set for FA zons.
    Boots: Sandstorm Trek (13 strength, 14 vitality)
    Amulet: The Cat's Eye
    Ring #1: Raven Frost
    Ring #2: This very nice rare ring:

    Skull Hold
    Ring
    Required Level: 74
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 87
    Fingerprint: 0x12f8915e
    +16 to Strength
    +107 to Attack Rating
    Fire Resist +10%
    Lightning Resist +10%
    7% Life stolen per hit
    6% Mana stolen per hit

    SKILLS:

    Bow and Crossbow:
    Cold Arrow: 26 (20)
    *Freezing Arrow*: 26 (20)
    Strafe: 9 (3)
    Magic Arrow, Ice Arrow, Multishot, Guided Arrow: 7 (1)

    *: FA's splash damage is 2043-2265 (cold damage from the skill itself and from equipment).

    Passive and Magic:
    Dodge, Evade: 12 (6)
    Inner Sight, Critical Strike, Slow Missiles, Avoid, Penetrate, Decoy: 7 (1)
    Valkyrie: 17 (11)
    Pierce: 23 (17)

    MY BEST FINDS:

    - Natalya's Shadow (with 3 sockets and 684 def). Corpsefire dropped it. This is by far the best Nat's amor I've found.
    - Stormspire (173% ed). I found this in The Pit, on players 1 with only 137% mf (!).
    - Skullder's Ire. Pindleskin (Hell) dropped this.
    - Natural Grand Charm (+1 elemental skills).
    - Credendum. I got this from a random Spike Fiend (?) in the Ancients Way.
    - The Hell Hellforge dropped me a GUL rune, which is the highest rune I've ever found!
    - And last but certainly not least: Hell Baal dropped me a green Breast Plate!!

    Now I still have one question remaining: I was thinking about using this character for rune-hunting in the Moo Moo Farm. But how can you enter the Cow level more than once (the AS says you can only enter it once per difficulty)? Should I make MP games to enter it?
