for my side char i have decided to go freeze bowazon ._. . only low lvl but so far its ok.. lil weak and takes more strategy to bring down basics..... but fun and i like bows >_> what is some good gear to farm for later on
I've made several Frozen Arrow bowazons, using unique bows as a primary weapon. I like to make sure I have Strafe maxed out as an alternate skills, both for Cold Immunes and for life / mana leaching purposes. Frozen Arrow is powerful, but uses a LOT of mana. Lightning Fury is also a nice alternate skill with a javelin on weapon switch.
Lycander's Aim is a pretty easy to find bow with some nice stats for Frozen Arrow:
Bow Class -
Slow Attack Speed
+150-200% Enhanced Damage
Adds 25-50 Damage
+20% Increased Attack Speed
+2 To Amazon Skill Levels
5-8% Mana Stolen Per Hit
+20 To Energy
+20 To Dexterity
+20% Enhanced Defense
If you can find an Vex and Ist runes (not that easy, but doable with some patience by running Hell Lower Kurast or Tranvincal), you can make Silence. It has a ton of useful stats, including resistances and some good crowd control in the form of blinding monsters or making them run away:
30% Better Chance Of Getting Magic Items
I really like bowazons - they are excellent for mass killing, such as in the Pit, although they killing bosses with them can be laborious. Getting your Valkyrie to level 17 (where she will equip a rare War Pike) and using Decoy to scout ahead can make it a very safe character to play. Have fun!
hmm interesting very ddifferent way than my necro is playd and stat gear wise. really liking it though . i like diablo 1 archer as well..she owns hahaha was the only one i used. ill do some farming and see what turns up as for the vex rune..yes ive heard thats a fairly rare rune ..maybe one day find one highest ive had is ist i thin
