wut are the ias bps for a wf zon
ZenDragon's Bow Bible:
Hydra speed class = 
15 frames = 0 ias
14 = 5
13 = 11
12 = 22
11 = 35
10 = 56
9/3 = 89
9/2 = 120
8 = 147
(the /3 and the /2 at the 9th frame are concerning strafe speed, however I myself am not sure if you can get to 9fps for normal arrow shots with 89, or 120. I'm thinking you just need 89ias for 9fps guided/normal arrows because on this site: http://www.theamazonbasin.com/d2/iguides/corwin5.php it says "9/3: 89 IAS (useful if you don't plan on using Strafe much)" - Therefore I suppose reaching 120ias will only get you a faster strafe, but your normal shots will stay same speed of 9fps as when you had at least 89ias.
someone please correct me if i'm wrong on the 9/3 9/2 ias speeds regarding strafe or normal arrows.
sJw_shan, you're completely correct. The only point of getting to 120 IAS is for the 2 frame strafe rate and that can be a very worthwhile objective for a strafer. All other Bowazon attacks only need 89 IAS to reach the 9 frame attack rate.
thanks for checking =)
ya i'm using strafe well planning on using it and i'm making a mf pit runner so wut fps bp should i "shoot" oh god i crack myself up lol j.k. and if anyone knows wut skills should i max, i'm kinda iffy on the cold arrow cause there is alot of pi/ci guys.
You need more IAS the weaker your bow is, ie less damage per strafe needs more strafe speed. I use 30 IAS on my WF pit runner and she kills very fast in 8 man games.
Ppl here seem to think IAS is the be all and end all of a strafer.
If you making a pitter, DONT waste skill points in FA or anything else as there are NO PI's in the pit unless a random boss spawns with it, but once your merc has a reapers toll the decrep will remove any and all PI's. It can be a little annoying questing and running into PI's, but you only quest once and in a party these PI's can be killed by some1 else
With my zon, i maxed strafe(duh) got multi a base of 5, cuz its still a nice skill to have. For passive i have 6/4/6 for the evading and 5 crit strike and 5 into pierce. Then i have Valk maxed, now i dont know what to do lol Pump decoy for a insane valk? or put pts into G Arrow... or into FA... *shrugs*
I also got 125 stat points... 25 base vit lol. My zon's lvl 75.. what should my vit be? 50?100base? lemme know bout that!
well i found a perfect wf last night, so that is wut i'll be using shael that and there is 40%ias right there, wut about maxing magic arrow that would deal quite a bit of magic damage with a wf wut u guys think?
anyone know question to my last answer?
I think you dont need magic arrow. If you're only gonna use your ama for pits you can spend the points elsewhere. And if your zon is going to be everywhere, then i suggest to follow up shanksie's advise and equip your merc(might is best IMO) with a reapors.
Magic arrow will prolly do good dam, but IMO strafe will blast monsters just as fast.
that reaper is ladder only!!! what good is that??????????
what is your point?
my ponit is...what good is it if its only ladder!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I went with bonehew insteads..........now all i need to 2 x 40/15 jewels to put into sockets of bonehew
don't wait 2 40/15 ias on a bone hew for a merc unless ur sickly rich or a kid that uses ebay not worth it at all.and does anyone know a good skill distrabution for a strafe pit runner?
You're saying that if a item that is ladder only it's useless???? That doesnt make sense at all.
What I did:
5 orso in pierce
rest i divided over other P&M skills
You can also go for freezing arrow
Ok so what should i put into the 2 bonehew sockets??...i have a 39% Ed & a 36% ed i was thinking of that....
