    widowmaker bow character

    I have recently acquired a widowmaker bow (gives guided arrow) and I am thinking of making a bow character. I have heard of bow sorcs (probably what im going to do), bow pallys, and bow assassins. Which one in your opinion is the best? Give reasons why and please discuss skills to use and some gear.

    Oh yeah, I'm non-ladder.

    Well, you could use a paladin that uses holy shock/fanaticism as an aura while using Widowmaker mainly because a pally would have more life. I think enchant is cut down by 1/3 damage for ranged weapon or something like that so the damage output on the pally could better. I've only dueler one ranger pally before and he had tons of openwounds/poison damage with fanaticism. Everyone thought he was a zealot because he had a sword and shield and then he switched to a bow and caught a lot of people by surprise. But this was a while ago so I'm not sure of the exact details.

    best char with widowmaker is a ww barb with it on switch to OW ppl, and puts stupid tele spamming hammers in their place.

    its also good on a ww/kicksin on switch to annoy ppl caues of the venom

    My storm ranger (holy shock/freeze) although originally a pve char does airly well in pvp. You switch over to holy freeze to keep the melee's off you and load up on OW, CB, etc to do your killing. The resist arua synergies help keep you alive vs sorcs.
    Howevr you do lack defence and if someone manages to get ontop of you your kinda auto-dead :rolleyes:

    My smiter has a widowmaker on switch for sorcs, 2h/dual wield barbs and hammerdins. Sooooo funny watching a hammerdin die to GA when there is no ama in game, and he starts with the OMFG LOL ROFL HAXX stuff.
