Ok, so I feel like starting another charcter (again). I feel like going for an amazon as I havn't played them in a while. The main question is should I go pure bowazon/strafezon or a hybrid? I've been looking at strafe and with 24 points (I think) that's a maxed strafe. I was thinking of a pure bowazon but I don't know as to what skills I should go for, I was thinking about maxing strafe and magic arrow (should I even max this?) but that's only 43 points, so I'm asking as to what to do with the other points? Valk, penetrate, critical strike, pierce? I've been trying to find some guides but they are all based around items to make them "perfect". So I am again asking the immense knowledge that is the SPF to help me with this build.
this is simple read the guides on the amazon forums or the sticky up top, they are probably better than any of our responces and they go into alot of detail on the character. Your questions will be answered if you read a Amazon guide either the hybird or strafer guide.
Check out the magic arrow zon guide by JonnyBravo on the strategy compendium if you don't want a guide that isn't about making an amazon with perfect gear. If you want a bowazon, I'd say go for strafe, and throw in MA, Valk and some passives. Do what you want with the spare points
IMO MA is underrated, max it for 20% physical damage converted to Magic damage, + AR, no arrows and no mana. The + damage is pretty small but helps a lot when starting out.
