    Need tips on my Bowzon build

    Hi,

    I just trade for like 15-20xhrs and was thinking about a char that isnt expensive to build (not really need good invent) : Bowzon.

    Gear:

    - Dream Bv
    - Cat eye
    - Gmb Faith
    - Fort (or 120/45?)
    - Dracs (any other suggestion?)
    - Dual leech ring
    - Raven frost
    - Razortail
    - Gores

    If i use fort, will i still it the last ias breakpoint? (link with fhr, ias breakpoints will be nice to have on that thread plz :p ).

    Thx in advance

    You won't even be at the second to last breakpoint. The last BP for a GMB is 95% IAS. You have just 20% in your setup.

    Easiest/Best way to hit the last BP with GMB Faith (assuming 13+ aura):
    Gloves: Crafted KB gloves with 20% IAS
    Helm: 3os Tiara with IAS/XX jewels or IAS/xx socketed Mavina helm
    Belt: Nos Coil
    Ammy: Cat's Eye

    If you want more flexibility, shoot for the next BP (8/2 instead of 7/2) or use a GM bow. Both of these are around 50% IAS, but I don't recall exactly.

    FHR is really not that important for a Zon since you shouldn't be getting hit anyhow.

    I think by "GM bow" Bjam means Matriarchal Bow here. Sorry if I miss understood, Bjam.

    48% to reach 8, 95% to reach 7 if you have 13 fana if you use MS that is....

    If for PvP, don't use the Dream.

    Dream on Bowazons is for PvM only, and for use with Multishot. The 1-648 damage doesn't cut it on single shots (GA).

    If it's PvM also, don't worry about 7/2 too much, you'll kill fast enough anyway with 8/2 and the difference is barely noticable.

    Also, if PvM, using Windforce, and giving a merc a Faith will result in a much higher overall damage.

    Gear: ( I assume you multi/freezing arrow)

    - Dream Bv --- no use Tal Rasha helm with 40ed/15ias jewel (nice dual leech)
    - Cat eye --- use Highlords (deadly strike +1 skills)
    - Gmb Faith --- good choice (at least 13 on fanaticism)
    - Fort (or 120/45?)---Fort for sure (=massive damage and endless other good stuff)
    - Dracs (any other suggestion?)---+3 bow skills/20 ias (dracul sucks you nn life tap unless you fight Lillith :grin: )
    - Dual leech ring--- use raven on this one too (+20 dexterity of course)
    - Raven frost --- a no brainer
    - Razortail --- excellent choice (saves you skills points and gives you 100% pierce with few skill points used)
    - Gores --- might work but war traveller is even nicer (because of damage which is multiplied with all your ed bonuses)

    With this build you hit 8 frames = real nice, no monsters (except Baal+Ubers) will live long vs this build

    gl mate! :thumbsup:

    Best pvp setup for bowzon is..

    120ed/45ias helm
    cats eye/ highlords/ maras (if you dont want to hit last breakpoint)
    Forti
    Faith GMB (13+ aura lvl)
    crafted 20 ias kb gloves with + skills/ stats/ res
    ring 1: raven (need this one for sure
    ring 2: raven/bk/nice dual leach ring/ wisp for lite sorb or dwarf for fire sorb
    nos coil/ could swap out t-gods for light sorb or dungos for %DR
    war travs for damage/ treks for life/str boost/ nice f r/w fhr tri res boots
    max/ar/life gcs, lcs or scs and res charms to get max res and some fr/w scs.
    torch
    anni

    and of course........ARROWS, lol. Sometimes I run out and then all my gear is useless until i refill so make sure you go into duel with plenty of arrows.
