    Razortail or thundergods vigor?

    Which one should i use for a pure lightningzon? I'm leaning towards thundergods, because of the lightning absorb, better stat bonuses, 3 to lightning fury and that it's called "thundergods" which looks great on a lighningzon. But I'll need to invest alot of points into pierce which I don't want to. If I don't use razortail, how many hard points will i need to spend in pierce to get a reasonable pierce chance?

    Always razortail, so that you can be effective with 1 point in pierce with some +skills. Without razortail you can max pierce and get a lot of +skills and it'll still be a bit weaker than the first option.

    This is also independant of the amazon you make (unless you happen to use buriza or kuko instead for the pierce).

    if u want to run baal a lot, using thundergods. otherwise, using razortail.
    anyway, put only 1 point in pierce. with equipment, u will have at least 60%+ chance of piercing, that is enough.

    While you could be fine with 60% pierce, near-100% pierce is so much better, at least for freezing arrow and/or lightning fury.

    If you have to choose one, I'd say Thundergod's Vigor. It offers protection against one of the deadliest types of damage in the game.

    Well even at L20, pierce only gives you 85%. That means it only has about a 50/50 chance of piercing more than 4 enemies. In really tightly packed areas like CS or Cows, or even some rolls of WSK, you'll be wanting to pierce much more than 4 enemies at a time. More pierces mean more Fury procs, after all. You'll want the 100% pierce that Razortail allows.

    no.

    _______________________________________

    If pierce is under 9 after all your +skills then use razortail. If it is over 9 then dont. You shouldnt think the belt is too great for a javazon as others are better in my opinion, but it is sufficient.

    IIRC, you can't pierce more than 4 enemies = having 5times Fury triggered at maximum?

    Razortail.



    You dont really need TGs for running down to Baal if you just play alittle bit tactical.
