Learn more about Diablo 2 Angelzon build, its skills, stats and equipment
The Angelzon build relies mostly on equipment rather than the skills. It takes advantage of items with the effects “%chance to cast spell/skill on striking”, “attacker receives damage of x” and “chance to cast a spell when hit”. As a result, it’s effective versus large groups of enemies.
This type of Amazon definitely seems cool, but it’s pretty weak until you have some powerful high-level items. Even so, it may be a better option to invest in a build capable of dealing much higher damage to a little smaller amount of enemies.
As above mentioned, an Angelzon often uses items with bonuses like “chance to cast a spell on hit”. Many of her skills are coming from her items, so they are more effective with multi-attack skills. These are Strafe, Guided Arrow, Multiple Shot, Lightning Fury, Fend, Slow Missiles, and Jab. So you want to have maxed out at least one of these.
Some common paths for Angelzons are:
Invest enough points to Strength to wear the suitable items.
Don’t invest more points in Dexterity than your equipment requires.
Spend a lot of points in Vitality as you need much sustainability. Use items with life replenishments effect and life potions for a better life regeneration.
Keep Energy at the base. Use mana charms and mana potions if you’re having problems with your mana pool.
Good choices for an Angelzon are items with the effect “chance to cast static field when hitting”, so you can lower the enemy’s health by 25% at once. For this reason, you have better to wear the Cow Set. The Hwanin armor set provides this effect too but with a lower chance. This makes it perfect for your mercenary though (more info below).

An Angelzon’s ideal companion is an Act 2 mercenary with the effect of thorn aura. This way your Decoy and Valkyrie will take advantage of the aura as well. Unfortunately, they don’t receive the bonus effects from your items.
