    Not mentioning that it is a slow mofo zon, WF just isn't fair. Knockback on a Zon is ... well ... unfair for any melee. Especially if one equips oneself with a 7-frame guided and knockback.

    Also, nice to see so many perfect 40/15s... Guess you play a lot...

    Here's a tad bit more effective build, and it doesn't use unfair stuff (it's league based, for those who play by the rules)

    - Eaglehorn (shael)
    - ED/IAS armor (or plain IAS if you can't afford)
    - Death's hand + sash (30% IAS, CBF)
    - Jeweler's
    - Verdungo's / Goldwrap (IAS) / Nos. Coil (lamer belt)
    - Cat's Eye
    - Wartrav's / Aldur's Boots
    - Titan's / Storm on switch (acctually any other shield will do, Blackoak ain't bad, massive dex + life bonus)
    - 2 x rings of your choice (mana, life and stats)

    You need about 147% IAS for 8-frame Guided. Which is fairly fast. Eagle is a pretty slow bow in comparison to other rare cruels and alike...

    Stats
    Str: Enough to equip all gear
    Dex: Rest (should be 300+)
    Vitality: Roughly a 100-150 base

    This requires a pretty godly charm base, but it can easily top 1200 life when correctly done.

    Skills
    Guided Arrow 20
    Multishot 10+ (there is a point where you get max spread, rest just increase density, it's around 18 MS or so you'll need...so...)
    Dodge 1+ (since you rarely tank hits later on, it might be excess points to max this one)
    Evade 12-20 (to avoid missiles, a killer in Ama vs. Ama)
    Avoid 12+
    Critical 20 (you can hit around 69% Critical with enough +skills. That's pretty fair)
    Penetrate 5+ (Just pump this later on)
    Valkyrie 1
    Lightning Bolt 1 / Fury 1 (just to get an ITD attack when throwing javs)
    Jab 1
    Slow Missiles 1+

    Something like that. It's a pretty effective Hybrid basicly. 1.09 style. To tweak it further, find a good Rare / Cruel Grand Matron Bow. BotD Hydra Bow is also a damn good weapon. Silence Crusader / Hydra is effective vs. casters and a magic bow with a few sockets and an um rune or two grants you a bit of Open Wounds. An up:ed Lycander's can also work. Among the top notch can be a Cruel Diamond bow with a lot of min. damage or a cruel shadow bow (of evi.).

    If you don't mind leagues or rules. Do what Magnet did, or go find yourself all the bugged stuff you can find and equip Slow / Knockback and what-ever.

    Correctly done a legit dexa / hybrid zon can do more damage than a "newb cannon" WF:er. And shoot about 2-3 frames faster. And that's before critical accounted for...

    Nice guide, but based on 1.09 :(

    I mean a BotD Crusader Bow, no pierce (since it sux in 1.10). Maybe some poinjts in dodge???

    Well, the general idea of a Zon is to avoid getting hit. Once you learn that, the points in Dodge can easily be put somewhere else. Of course, as long as you're not too experienced, dodge at around 50% is good enough...

    Wait a minute, wait a minute...I am seeing "max guided" all over the place but I thought they nerfed this in 1.10...? Or am I wrong? O_O

    they nerfed the pierce, but the guidance system still works. also the +5%dmg per lvl isn't too bad, but nothing worthy using skiller charms for. passive charms all the way.

    Skill charms are viable option too. You will be lacking physical damage. But that can be compensated via Open Wound, slight poison / elemental damage.

    I keep hearing rumours about max damage not working on anything but weapons. I hope this doesn't apply to charms, because dexazons could really use the damage they can get from charms...

    I beleive they limited the range of guided though. You can't shoot people off screen anymore, like you could in 1.09. However, it is still a fast, ranged attack with customisable damage output, and it transfers different effects. Several reasons why it's still better than a Bone Spirit.

    GA= the best skill for amazon using bow.
    U can still shoot IGA's till ~2-3 screens.
    This guide was made for 1.9 but as for skill choice u dont need pierce anymore -> put in dodge which sometimes is usefull even if u r experienced dueller.
    Bow choice is simple.Either use BOTD or if u can, get a 4xx 20ias +max dmg 2 sockets GMB and put 2xed/ias jewels.
    Belt -> verdungo
    Helm -> ed/max ed/ias bone visage with life
    All u need to reconsider are tacits
    :wave:
