    omfg godly magezon :eek:

    kk ima try a magezon out, using faith fort for nice phys damage also:

    mav diadem ias jewel
    highlords
    faith gmb
    fort diamond mail (meh =o)
    mav gloves
    2x raven
    razortail
    war travs

    that gives me 65 ias which even goes over the 8fpa bp. you also may ask why mavs .. well i felt like it. o.o helm gets +1 all skills, partial set gives 20 str. and thats nice to equip my fort.

    skills:

    20 freezing arrow
    20 cold arrow
    20 immo arrow
    20 fire arrow or exploding - help here, leaning towards fire
    1 guided
    1 in all passives
    rest into multi

    ill use an act2 might merc with insight, andys, fort.

    i think ill use enough passive skillers to get lvl 9 pierce, then rest bow skillers.

    should be awsome.. w/ max pierce i can like freeze everything then immo, then spam multi, guided, fire/exploding or more freezing.

    imput would be awsome.

    It looks like you are going for a lot of physical damage. This is something Mages don't generaly do, but that doesn't mean it won't work. Insight mercs make magezons a pretty easy build now, but my Harmony zon could still shoot herself out of mana in no time. I used lvl13MA and strafe (yes, strafe) to allow her mana to regen.
    Speaking of Harmony, I also think this is a better RW for a mage. The elemental damage is off the chart, plus you can roll a fair cruel mod with it too. PIs do not exist to Harmonyzons.

    Yeah swap a raven for manald, sprinkle with a few elemental charms and you are good to go. Of course you can do just about anything you want to with that kind of gear :D

    ive got a nice 6/6 dual leecher i might stick on too. but yeah, i just got bored of teh multi/guided, thought i would spice it up a bit.. price isnt really a factor. ive always loved max pierce splashing FA, immo should be teh secksay times 2.

    Just a quick question here guys. I'm not trying to highjack this thread or anything now but if this was non-ladder what would be best to use then?

    Fortitude and faith are out of picture but i happen to have a silence crusader bow, what you think?

    I figured the 75% all res on bow would help make making things easier when picking among other items.

    I'm going for 2 Different Mages, 1 Fire and 1 Cold. I'm on NL btw, so mostl using NL stuff, but maybe 1 or 2 Ladder items in for when the reset occurs

    For the Fire one i was thinking:

    HoJ Matri Bow (+3)
    CoH - Dusk / Wyrm
    2 x Soj
    +2 Bow skills, 20 ias, Leech Gloves
    Highlords (Ias and Skill)
    Nosferatu's (for ias to hit 8 frame attack)
    Silkweave / Gores
    Either Shako or +2 Ama, circlet with, 2 socks, mana, ml and resist

    For the Ice one:

    Ice Matri Bow (+3)
    CoH
    Mavs Helm - Ias Jewel
    Mavs Gloves (for Cold Duration mainly)
    Razortail
    Eye of Etlich (Cold duration and Skill)
    2 x Soj
    Silkweave



    Just my build suggestions. Dont have any idea how they are going to fare in the real world!

    Rat, if it helps I think Lycander's Aim works well for magezons.

    I loved my silence zon in 1.09. This wasn't a popular bow back then. Not enough ED, only 20IAS on a +10 bow etc. But that was back in the days of glass cannons with major negative resists which adds up to burnt toast in the 1.10 world.

    The strat with Silence is a bit different from your typical vamp/mage. Rather than opening up with FA and cleaning up with strafe/multi, you open with the crowd control skill and finish with elemental. The hit blinds target "silences" burning souls, gloams, even frenzytors! I have sur'd bows and doesn't work anywhere near as well. BTW, my 09 Silence zon was the only build I had that could hold her own 1.10. The other builds could kill, but they were way too fragile.

    Edit, her backup bow was Lyc's Aim, a very good bow :D

    i think for the ice one you can consider nws, that would boost dmg a bit. as for the sojs, im not sure, do freeze and immolation need ar, cause if they do you will definatly not have enough

    Afaik they need AR to leech, but not to cause ele damage.

    After looking at the builds and skills etc, i've already decided that both my previous ones are pretty bad.

    Silence looks like the bow of choice for the juicy res (which i will be lacking otherwise)

    But i agree, NW's would add a lot of damage for the cold one.
