Something new that can do very good damage...

What do you guys think about a bowazon? With the new patch, no sense in making a poisen java now-- even before the patch i was not a fan of javs...

Do you think a bowazon can be strong enough to run through normal solo?

Just looking to get some ideas here and also unique builds...

I tried Hydra sorc and got to lvl 65 and totally though she sucked bad... did descent damage but the casting delay is just so slow... takes forever to lvl.

Any other ideas on unique builds guys?

I am fairly new to HU, and I made a bowazon as my first character. I have awesome bows, but my other gear isn't very good. I do quite well, currently level 85 and in A2 Hell mode. I do about 22k dmg with a 392-946 dmg socketed, rare, Hydra Bow. I did about 18k dmg with an ethereal Eaglehorn. That is strafe dmg by the way, it's less with multishot but multi still shreds absolutely everything with a good attack speed.

I can solo Radiment with ease, haven't tried any other hell mode bosses yet. I am very pleased with my character so far, and looking forward to getting to A5 hell mde. Every regular monster in A2 dies in a few hits.

I should also add I maxed strafe, multi, and decoy. Not sure what else to max yet - probably going to be Valkrye though. Also I put just about everything to dex for more damage, so I only have 1200 HP. I die pretty easily, but it's not that hard to stay out of damage with a ranged attack.

I find bowazons to be one of the most fun classes to play by far, so that is usually my reason for making them. I don't see many around either because everyone just makes poison zons.

Hope that helps. Good luck with your choice.

Bowas have huge survivability, if you die on them you didn't build it right.

Hey bobbby... thats for reply :)

Since i am hardcore, can you give me a mid-level build of some sort... something i can farm in Norm/NM to start her? Obviously its a little tougher with trading to come by descent items since i dont have any chars in hell yet... Any chance of listing some stuff for a bowazon to make her descent?
