The Bow Amazon is perhaps the strongest ranged attacker in Diablo 2. With a fast attack speed and a high chance to hit, she is able to deliver strong blows one after the other to clear whole rooms full of enemies. Keep in mind that there is no single "perfect" skill set for an Amazon, and much of it depends on individual preferences and play styles. Still, there are certain guidelines for distributing stat and skill points to create a powerful fighter.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Allocate most of your skill points to the Vitality and Dexterity attributes. Vitality is essential for any character, since enemies later in the game can deal enormous amounts of damage. Dexterity is a prerequisite for most of the Amazon's weapons and boosts overall damage. Stacking these abilities gives the character high survivability and damage-dealing power. Give the Amazon only enough Strength to meet the requirements of her gear, which should be around 100 overall. Ignore the Energy attribute; Amazons have little need for mana power.

  2. 2

    Place most of your skill points in the Bow and Crossbow skills tree. Most Amazons focus on two skills and put the maximum amount of points into them. Commonly chosen skills are Guided Arrow, Freezing Arrow, Multiple Shot and Strafe. If your chosen skills have synergies with other skills, put extra points in those to make them more powerful. Put one or two points into the Passive and Magic skills Critical Strike, Dodge, Avoid, Penetrate, Evade, and Valkyrie.

  3. 3

    Collect gear that reinforces the Amazon's strong points. A powerful bow is essential, and other armour should improve upon it. Look for items that increase attack speed, running speed, and boost your primary skills.
