    Untwinked Javazon for ladder reset.

    Well, I'm thinking ahead to ladder reset, and decided my first character would be a LitJavazon. I have yet to build an Amazon in 1.10, so I was wondering how my prospective build looks so far. Thanks in advance :)

    (MAX) Lightning Fury <---Crowd Control
    (MAX) Charged Strike <--- Single/Little Pack killer
    (MAX) Fend/Jab <--- Physical Immune killer
    (?) Lightning Strike<--- Do I need this for this build?
    (17) Valkyrie
    (~10) Pierce
    D/A/E<--- Enough for ~40% each
    (1) Prerequisites

    I plan on using Act 2 Holy Freeze Merc.

    I was wondering if this looked ok for an initial ladder char. Ty again :D

    IMO, if you want to build a good Javazon, I'd say start with a MF Sorc, that's what I'm doing and I'm going to MF till I get rich enuf to afford a Javazon with top-end gear.

    If you want a change of pace use LS instead of LF and use a +4 Thunderstroke for your melee attacks, I had alot of fun with that, though LF is more powerful since piercing hits get both the physical damage and lightning damage on each monster hit after the initial. LS only gets physical damage/lightning on the first monster you hit, but just lightning damage for the rest hit.

    While Titan's is the better weapon if your primary attack is LF, a good Thunderstroke is the better weapon if you go LS.

    I switched to HC a few months back and my first char was, surprise surprise, a javazon for several reasons:

    - not item dependant at all
    - high life, block
    - valkyrie and decoy
    - pindle dies in a sec / cows are deadmeat
    - I know how to play a javazon

    Now she's still alive at lvl 91, a killing machine, expect lacks power of FULLY synergizet lightning zon.

    Don't go for jab/fend/critical strike at all, dump all those skill points into synergies for killing power. Your merc will deal with immunes if that's necessary - you'd be killing with jab so ridiculously slow, even with a decent weapon on switch (in Hell).

    About starting from a scracth, I made a lot of NM cow runs, found several charms with trade value (life sc's, mf sc's mostly) and got myself a decent gear.

    If you're wondering my skill points distribution, here it is:

    LF - 20 (right click, main attack)
    LS - 20 (using very rarely, synergy)
    CS - 20 (left click, secondary attack)
    PS - almost maxed (synergy)
    Valkyrie - 17 with +skills
    Dodge and evade - 3 pts.

    Plus the one points wonders.

    You mean your merc can handle all those LIs? He/She must be using uber equipment to withstand packs of LIs. I also tried this build but I found out that my merc combined with valk cannot handle those LIs. Oh well... must be because of crap equipment. :lol:
