After reading those bowazon threads using Ice and Faith, I decided that it was about time to plan my bowazon - being somehow frustrated by my Random Tournament amazon sure is to be taken into account.

I will have to check amongst my bases, but as it will be a SC project, I already have runes for Faith, and to be somehow different, I am a Sur/Ber close from... Wrath, got a 4os Superior Matriarchal Bow +3 Bow +12ed +1ar in SC, so it would be a (close to) perfect base.

For skills, I would go Strafe for sure, then... I'll see. But Freezing arrow could be tempting - freezing + Decrepify could be so a nice combo! However it may be a (too) big amount of skill points...
Edit: sure it does...better go with lvl 14 Multiple shot than not-even-maxed Freezing arrow. Or play with passive points...

I will check my gloves, I may have to build a collection of Hit power magical bases to have access to Knockback, at least while questing.

Well, just starting the thinking, so... informations to be gathered, story to be written!

A guide to bow's runewords had been moved here, so i'll take it as first input.

Details on WF/Faith build given here.

Let's go!
