Returning to D2 after a long time. PvM Bow Amazon question! As the topic states, I used to play quite a bit some years ago. I had a few 70-80s or so, nothing too serious. The one class I never touched was Amazon. I decided to make a Bowazon as my first new character, and I seem to be having problems killing things. I tend to always play with a friend of mine, and they play a Lightning Sorc. I'm currently level 28. Not looking to powerlevel or be rushed or anything, as I just wanted to enjoy the full game again since I haven't in so long. Not killing things quickly is beginning to suck, though. Is there a level in which things get better? My gear is nothing special, and I have nothing amazing sitting around waiting to be used. The best thing I have is probably the Hellcast Crossbow I use, which is rather slow. My other gear is nothing great, either. Duskdeep helm, Cleglaw's Gloves, Hotspur Boots, and the rest is pretty much merchant-bought magic items. Stats are: 65 STR 70 DEX 70 VIT 15 Energy I've read a few things on here and gotten some differing views on various skills, so I've tried to put points into what I think is useful: Prereqs for Multi/Strafe 2 Guided Arrow (possibly a wasted point. Not sure. Some seem to think it great and others think it's bad for PvM) 6 Multi Shot 4 Strafe 1 Inner Sight/Slow Missiles/Decoy 5 Critical strike 3 Dodge 3 Avoid 2 Evade 1 Penetrate No Javelin skills I'm going to assume it's probably a fairly gear-heavy build, as all of the other help posts seem to be from people that already have high level stuff waiting for them when they hit the appropriate level. I don't have that luxury yet. Should I put the Bowazon on hold for something else until then, or is it at all viable to level with pretty much merchant/dropped gear?
