    Congratulations! I think the eq is pretty sweet for a first Matriarch. Is she untwinked?

    Looks good. LF/PJ zons seem less popular than other LF hybrids, but they are still fun to play, so long as the players setting is kept low at 1-3. I would suggest getting the Valk to slvl 17 with your remaining skill points.

    No, she's a bit twinked. I found an old stash file with some stuff in it :)

    Dornak, mind to share her skill allocation? I got a titan's revenge from sirpoopsalot's giveaway stash so my next character will be a LF/PJ amazon.

    Skill allocation at 82 is:

    Lightning Fury: 20
    Charged Strike: 14
    Plague Javelin: 20
    Poison Javelin: 14
    Valkyrie: 6
    Pierce: 6
    Prereqs: 1

    I also put a point in Impale and Fend and regretted it. Also for some reason, I put a point into Lightning Strike that I shouldn't have.

    Up until lvl 30 it was 1 point into all pre-reqs, then at 30 I maxed LF while putting points into Valk and Pierce. After LF was maxed, I put a few points into CS then maxed Plague J. After that topped out, I split points between Poison J and CS.

    I went through most of NM in P8 but switched back to P1 for Hell because I didn't have the patience to grind through the LI's. Only died about 3 times, once due to the exploding stygian doll things before Meph and a couple of times to frenzytaurs in act5. Nothing was particularly tough but the Hell ancients were the worst. Spent about 10-15 mins just running around and casting PJ.

    I don't know much about poison skill damage and usefulness, but i advise on maxing charged strike just after lingtning fury if you are going to use poison as a secondary damage source.

    I am currently working on a LF/FA zon, stationed in NM Act 5 currently. I put my skills so that i have max LF at clvl 50 and put everything else in CS till both are maxed. CF is a very useful skill for boss killing and large monsters. You do not need your back-up skill (poison or cold) for quite a long time. You can max both CF and LF before that time and put enugh skill to poison to handle the LI's.

    In fact you may choose not to bother with the valkyrie till yu reach hell too, i am planning not to use it at all and put points in lightning strike instead. My zon is doing real good so far, never had to change the /p8 setting, and the best weapen i have is a rare javalin with +1 to java tree. I guess you can do much better than i do if you have titan's. (Hope i can find one too soon :sad2:)

    NacRuno, if i remember correctly sirpoopsalot's giveaway stash left one more titan's before i hand it over to Dark Matter.. get it if you want..

    LF's synergies came from Charged Strike right? So if maxed two of this is it good?

    LF is pretty good on its own with no synergies. Each synergy point only adds 1% anyway, but Charged Strike is a great boss killer so they work well together.

    Thanks for the tip, but i am playing only self-found currently so can't use one till i find one. Restarted a while ago so not much in my stashes for now.

    As dornak said LF doesn't need synergies but CS is a very useful skill on its own + LF gives a nice synergy bonus to it. When you use CS you will love it aganist act bosses...
