    Just ditch the impale, then use those points on one of the melee lightning skills. Impale is... um... not very good; way too slow, and you'll be TP-ing back to town every five minutes, assuming you live, to repair your spear.

    Maxed Jab may be too much, although that's your call. I feel that having Jab at 6 after any +skills gear is sufficient. That's the point where there's no longer any damage penalty, and after that, the damage doesn't really scale well enough to be worth it. Personally, I'd save those points for passives, and/or invest more in the lightning synergies or the poison skills (for javs on switch).

    I'd say charged strike max, jab 1, ~60% dodge, 50% a/e, 15 penetrate, +- 15 valk (you'll get some +skills anyway), rest in critical strike and possibly a syn. for charged strike.

    I would recommend using the unique matriarchal spear as it gives 30-50% all resists (makes up for the lack of shield). Also silence/botd matriarchal spear are great, yet far more expensive (nobody makes spearazons nowadays so uniq spears are cheap when class specific). Some people choose to go with an upgraded ethereal lycander's flank (zod) but imho, it isn't worth the zod. Lycanders will get you through nightmare. Hell will be a problem, a huge problem, without shield and a huge damage spell. It's a very patient build but to me, it's also a very good build to play if you want to have fun.

    Don't forget to equip your (defiance!) merc with some nifty gear. And get a stone runeword as armor... you'll need the defense.

    Forget eletrical skills for a Spearazon. They just dont fit into the picture :)
    Chargedstrike etc. are best used with java/shield. Imo Amazon who is carrying big stick should take advance of very high physical damage skills instead of lousy lightning skills. Its pretty simple, Fend got more balls than any other java/spear skill(Now plz repair the goddamn bug that makes this skills pretty much useless).

    Blizz, be ashamed! ;)
