Definatly use Cat's eye for your ammy if you're gonna max critical strike. No sense having ~35 deadly if you already have ~70-80 crit.

Dual leech ring is basically useless. Leech sucks in 1.10 pvp. Use another ravenfrost or a dwarf star or something. Angelic combo works pretty well, but I prefer raven + cat's eye. *edit: I almost forgot about Atma's ammy. It's really funny to amplify a player and just obliterate them afterwards. Maybe get a point or two in strafe if you use atma's to amp then quicker.

For your shoes, like highlord's, you don't really need the deadly strike mod on gores. The crushing blow for ranged attacks is just pathetic, but the open wounds is decent although not vital. I'd go with Treks out of the two you suggested. But you should also look into Merman's Sprocket for the awesome defense, 65% FR/W, and even cold and magic absorb to help against those pesky cold sorcs and boners. Merman's Sprocket is also on the somewhat cheap side, if that matters much.

COH is good, Enigma is also pretty fun if you're going for a FR/W build that can outrun anything.

Faith is good

Guillame's Face is a decent helm, so is Vamp gaze or, to a lesser extent, Shako. A jeweled +life helm would be the best. Good mods to look for on jewels are ias, ed, max dmg, min dmg, resist if you need them, etc.

*edit: The knockback mod is very good, especially in pvp. It's typically considered bad-mannered to use, however, so it's not always an option.


Hope I offered some decent advice. Have fun with your zon.

Nope, I don't know if they were even in the code originally. Only thing I've seen of them is on this site.

Course, bnet being the way it is I certainly wouldn't be surprised if someone created one using some third-party program.

Merman's Sprocket
Wyrmhide Boots

+410-420 Defense
+310 Defense Vs. Missile
+65% Faster Run/Walk
Replenish Life +5
Regenerate Mana 8%
+60-75 Magic Absorb
+55 Cold Absorb

+ (0.75 Per Character Level) +0.75-74.24 To Mana (Based On Character Level)

Yea so pretty much if these actually existed nobody would wear anything else with the possible exception of necs and their marrowwalks.

Armor
1. Coh: use only if you need the resist (try to get life/resist charms)
2. Enigma: a key to "survivability" is being able to outrun/hitn'run your oppenent. (think of using 5frw chamrs)
3. Fortitude: this is the best all round armor considering its sick ed, +life, and resists

Bow
1. Faith GMB/Mat. bow: GMB has more damage, while Mat. bow has lesser damage, but greater speed.
2. Wf: excellent for pure damage.

Helm
1. Shako: cheap great source of skill, life/mana, 10%dr
2. Giant Skull: socket this with ed/ias
3. G-face: great soure of ds/ow, but if your critical strike is maxed no point in having.
4. Magic helm: 3os with life/30frw add ed/ias...but very expensive.

Belts
1. Verdungoes: best source of life/dr
2. Nosteratus: cheap 10ias 10ll +15str

Boots
1. war travs: boost damage "greatly" +10str, mf
2. gore riders: 30frw, 15/15 ds/ow pair this with highlords if you went 50%chance of Critical strike
3. shenks: 20frw 20fhr +vit/+str xxpoison resist

Rings
1. 2x Rfrost, add damage / ar
2. bk ring, +skill, adds to life, ll
3. angelic combo: hella no use considering your dex it high enough to give you tons of ar, besides only multishot requires ar.

Ammy
1. cats eye: 30frw, +25?dex 20ias
2. highlords: +1skill, 20ias, ds bclvl
3. maras: if you need resist
4. metalgrid: for resist/ar

gloves
1. magic 3/20ias: expensive
2. rare 2/20ias/mod: cheap
3. dracs: ll, op, lifetap, +str (use only if you break ias)
4. lavagouts: add damage 20ias fire resist

Apparently so, I met a guy selling five or six of these for 1 hi each on western non-ladder about 6 months ago. I guess it's too bad they don't exist :confused:

My suggestion would be to use Faith Mat (or ward/shadow/spider?) bow if you don't want to sacrifice too much gear to reach the 7 frame bp. Otherwise, WF would probably be the best choice.
