    Javazon vs Bowazon

    ok i was wondering which one is better for me. this is what im looking for:

    what it can be used for (mfing, pking, rushing) (i dont think there'll be much mfing, was just an example)

    how cheap/expensive each build is to be decent (and an alternative godly one. both decent in nightmare/hell and godly builds are welcome)

    ive also been told magezons are very keep and effective.

    any other information is good. thanks in advance

    bowzaon vs. javazon

    bowazons, are pretty good for pking. Between guided arrow and multiple shot, you stand a good chance to kill most people.

    for mfing and rushing, my experience is that javazons are better. You will probably need to get good javalins(titans) to be effective tho. just max lighting fury, charged stike, 10 points in pierce and put the rest of your points in their synergies and in passive and magic skills.

    however, both choices can do all three (pking, mfing, rushing) decently

    Javzons are better for pvm and improve considerably with better gear. Bowzons are more pvp thing that can do pvm but without really good gear can't do much good solo in 8player games.

    Zons arn't good for rushing usually cuz no teleport is availabel, unless you make enigma javazon.

    Use the search function cause most of your questions have already been answered many times. Godly javzon build thread here: http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=416547

    javazons: godly against anything vulnerable to light fury/charged strike, fall apart like a house of cards against light immunes unless they have a godly merc + godly physical damage backup

    bowazons: require insanely godly (wf, faith, fort, pride, insane ias, etc.) gear to clear 5-8 player act4/act5 hell in less than 10 centuries

    i think of javazons like sorcs, one trick ponies of lightning

    titans
    lore/tal's mask/stealskull/shako
    peace/vipermagi/lionheart/twitchthroe
    waterwalks/war travs/nat's boots/anything
    any rings
    any ammy
    any gloves
    any shield

    i wouldn't call that "good" gear for a javazon, yet it will destroy anything not lightning immune

    i read a guide on lightning zons, i forgot whos it was. i think it was the first one in the guide sticky. good thing is i have at least one of all those listed (im not too rich) except titans. the guide said titans can be replaced with any jav because it doesnt matter too much. i doubt a repleneshing jav from hell act 5 using another char. i hate repairing them!

    i have:
    tals, viper, waterwalks
    pretty crap, huh? i can make a lionheart if i get a good armor, i already had the runes surprisingly

    i could get a cheap/alright titans for my pul

    and should i max all lightnig skills or just lighnting fury, lightning strike and charged strike? i read those 3, around 1-7 in pierce, 17 in valk by late hell, and 1 in avoid etc

    EDIT: Jek's guide im pretty sure

    a bare level 20 fury with nothing but level 1 light bolt as a synergy is already godly and overpowered/broken in 1.10/1.11 hell

    Re: Javazon vs Bowazon

    i reckon javazons are better because they have very high lightning dam. also, have a shield,more resists than a bowazon, and also can kill really fast in pvm. Also, what is a decent bow damage for a bowazon in DIABLO 2 CLASSIC?
