    hello colin, my brother said there are too many noobie people joining the clan these days, who ask for builds, he said to look for your own builds before asking for one.. but if you seriously need one ive sort of generated one.

    Stat Distribution
    Strength 125 (to use the items ive recomended)
    Dexterity 250+, amazons never have enough
    Vitality 150, youll have enough hp with that
    Energy 15, a good amazon should never put points into this, just find mana leech

    Items Ive recomended
    first of all, you may want to find non set bonuses (because they can be better)
    but anyway

    Weapon- M'avina's Caster
    Armor- M'avina's Embrace
    Helmet- M'avina's True Sight
    Gloves- M'avina's Icy Clutch
    Belt- M'avina's Tenet
    Boots- Merman's Sprocket (do these exist? if not, use your favorite Unique elite)
    Ring- Raven Frost
    Ring- Manald Heal (you probably want to make this perfect)
    Amulet- The Rising Sun

    Skill Points
    +1 to all prerequisits
    +20 cold arrow
    +20 ice arrow
    +20 freezing arrow
    +20 valkyrie
    +5 to strafe you probably want back up like me
    +5+ to dodge and avoid, i havnt calculated the over all max youll have here, just use the leftovers

    Ive never tried this, but ive researched and heard it can work quite well... anyway, take finding your own builds into consideration :bonk:

    Besides Mavina set, the best bows are Windy, Eaglehorn, upgraded Witchwild String Diamond Bow (amp dam anyone? deadly strike...good bow), Lycanders Aim upgraded, Buriza (if you like clunky weapons), Hellrack, unless you have crazy IAS I'd avoid it, it's mega slow.

    --I would skip the valkyrie and max guided arrow, get a good mercenary. The problem with the above build (that I can imagine) is that you start to have problems with the cold immunes. The guided arrow will at least do physical damage and always hits.

    I would say do not max ice arrow and use those points for guided.

    I'd go with maxing valkryie because she is powerful now and you need all the help you can get in hell. Mine is maxed and can take quite a beating and can put one out too.

    I say don't max ice arrow because it does not add damage, only freeze length. Really, how long do they need to be frozen? They need to be dead.

    I had told him 18, since they get a war pike at 17, and I like to deal with round numbers.

    Freezing arrow is good, what I meant was not max ice arrow as a synergy because it does not add cold damage, only freeze length to freezing arrow.

    Freezing plus cold arrow is what I'd do. With guided and multi or strafe as a 2nd attack for cold immunes.

    Ok I'm coming back to this thread after a few weeks, and I have to agree with Jedsia. I have maxed cold arrow/freezing arrow/guided arrow, and now need to work on something else.

    The damage in hell is pretty pitiful, but my valk even at level 6 is pretty strong (my merc and valk easily survive all the nm baal runs), so I think I will max valk now.

    Don't forget to use inner sight to make the monsters easier to hit. That helped my merc and valk a lot, and I really don't see people using that skill much (except for the rogue hire :).

    Ya having a heavy duty tank valkryie helps alot. Also my merc has a Delirium helm that casts confuse on striking, so them onsters are busy fighting each other and I freeze em.

    My zon is doing quite well, I got my Mav set put together as well, and am quite happy with it. She's a speed demon with an ias jewel in the helm, armor and a shaeled bow.

    I like her zon too, esp. when i'm getting baal and need help. A good zon makes a big difference. Thats what i miss the most when i''m playing the pali. There just aren't enough zons anymore.
