Use the Amazon’s “Bow and Crossbow skills” tree to crush your enemies
This Amazon build relies on the “Bow and Crossbow skills” tree and uses Bows as main weapons. There are many types of Bowazons that require a different skill building and maybe different equipment. Next to the Javazon build, this is one of the most popular builds.
Bowazon’s primary physical skills like Multiple Shot, Strafe and Guided Arrow don’t have synergies. Therefore, they have many points left to invest in the skills of their preference. However, the Bow’s low damage balances this out.
Some players choose to have a healthy Valkyrie in a combination of a maxed out skill such as Multiple Arrow or Strafe. They have the luxury to arrange the rest of the points as they want.
Several of them are placing extra points in the Critical Strike, Penetrate and Pierce skills. Another option is to invest in elemental skills in order to deal with enemies with physical Immunity.
Note that some players prefer to max out Critical Chance, Avoid and Evade in combination with Strafe and Valkyrie. It’s a build that invests only in Dexterity and the mandatory Strength.
No matter which gear you’ll pick (unique items or runewords), you will always supplement this Bow Amazon Build with the best hellfire torch you can get your hands on, as well as a solid anni.
The most popular choices for a hireling is the Act 2 defensive mercenary (Holy Freeze Aura) or the offensive version of it.
