Too weak at pvp?

On my glass cannon bowazon with these gears,

15/2/3 grand matron faith bow
harmony ward bow on switch
120/45/30 helm dmg/ias/runwalk tiara
1.5lpl/30 resist fortitude
2x 20 dex ravens
cat's eye amulet
war travs
nosferatu's coil
all run/walk charms with damage
zon torch
anni
tons of frw/max dmg sc( while desyncting)

will i still lose majority of my duels? Zon is my favorite class and i also love dueling but I dont like losing at all my duels or most. I want to know if zon is just too weak for dueling with all these new runewords and i should just give up with my zon because the only thing i do on diablo is duel so of course i dont want to be losing at duel most of the time. I know i will lose to a smiter, auradin, shield barbs, ww hybrid sin, ES sorc, elemtal druid mostly all my duels but thats almost all class. Please give me some of your ideas.

a Zon isn't too weak to duel. With your gear you will do well but she definately won't win against some of those builds. The better you get the more builds you will be able to kill. You really need to master running and shooting, its you're only way of survival. It is viable though.

Which class will she difinately not win against and what are the stragedies that will make it higher chance to win? I seen smash vs. die-salsal and she actually killed the best barb on uswest. If you know what her build is, what are they?

One particular type I believe you could have a hard time defeating would be wind druids. Not sure what other types would be difficult since I dont pvp that much

Problem builds: Windies, Smiters, BvC, WWSin to name a few.

Die-SalSal proved my point, he's a really good pvp'r and because of his experience he was able to beat smash. The better you get the more duels you will win, even if it is an almost impossible match.

Do you know what was her build?

a good strat to use is have titans and a shield on switch. The major benefit from this would be the frw. If you choose so you can also make this switch enhanced with major resists and block.

Something else you may want to try is using enigma for teleport. I play a javazon exclusively and have seen a few bow zonz with teleport. They r effective against me, but i don tkno about other classes. Of course you would want to consider fcr for teleport.

Only thing i see is she use guided arrow far away and lightning fury at close range. i wonder what that build is called.

But, even the top legit Far Casters can only do it about 50% of the time...

Sure, even I can do it 90% of the time against monsters, but trying to legit Far cast in duels requires an amazing amout of skill...

Lest we forget, Auradins have a very easy time killing Bowazons, especially a glass-cannon type. You will be able to kill very few of them, even the slightly noobish ones.

This guide will build you a very successful PvP amazon, the build can take down most pvp'rs and own pubs. It looses to top BvC, Telesmiter, WWsin, Druid and Trapper, but against pubs it is devastating. It's also the only smiter proof amazon, you will beat 90% of them in pubs.

Does poison really take out the critical strike? I dont know because some say it is and some says its not. I really dont know what it is anymore since so many people disagree/agrees.

I don't know if it does or doesn't, but with this build you don't need poison. That's physical damage in the screen shots with 3 poison charms (last I checked).
