[v6e] Zoology, the Bowzon (by MNX)

Zoology, the Bowzon

Hello everyone, on this guide im telling you how to build a perfect bowzon that can pretty much rape all ubers, and is one of the top 3 characters to solo Kabraxis, the new uberquest.

Basically you will be using all bow skills except Phalanx - everyone knows no matter how good this skill can be used, wyrmshot and barrage will always be better.



Stat/Skill Points


  • Strength: Zero if possible. It depends on what item pieces you use endgame.
  • Dexterity: Everything! More physical damage, leech, and attack raiting.
  • Vitality: none!
  • Energy: none!



SKILLS

  • Wild and Free: 1 point. Prerequisite.
  • Fire Elementals: 1 point. Prerequisite. Useful when entering new difficulties, as on-death proc slvl gets higher.
  • Balance: 1 point. Prerequisite, pusseh skill Razz
  • Ecstatic Frenzy: sMax (29). Epic magic damage is epic.
  • Defensive Harmony: 15 points. Enough to reach 50% slow (cap for bosses)

  • Ghost Arrow: sMax (32). 9 Arrows, pretty nice, and synergy.
  • Barrage: 1 point. Secondary skill. Boss killer. Gets buffed with soft points.
  • Phalanx: 1 point. Prerequisite.
  • Dragonlore: sMax (29). Tri-ele damage.
  • Wyrmshot: 21 points. 10 targets is enough.

  • Paragon: 1 point. Over 17k hp endgame, without investing in vita.
  • War Spirit: 1 point. We don't need crushing blow.







Equipment



Early Game
  • Weapon: TU Stag Bow. Lifeblood and death blossom procs. Flat damage, and resistances.
  • Quiver: Locust Hive. 5% arrow proc. Enough said.
  • Armor: TU Splint Mail. tri-ele damage, guard tower proc.
  • Helm: TU Cervelliere. Str/Dex, lifesteal. Siegfried (Jah) Rw when you hit 65.
  • Belt: TU Heavy Belt. SoR Procs. Or TU Light belt for lifesteal and dex.
  • Gloves: Honorific Gloves to pump your resis, after that Kali (Pul) RW.
  • Boots: Lionpaw. Stats, life.
  • Rings: Ring of disengement/truth, Empyrean bands.
  • Amulet: Rare with +all skills.



Mid Game

  • Weapon: Fire (Pantheon Set). Tri-ele, and flat damage, and proc.
  • Quiver: Locust Hive or Hanabigami.
  • Armor: Earth (Pantheon Set). To complete set.
  • Helm: Heaven (Pantheon Set). To complete set.
  • Belt: TU Heavy Belt / TU Light belt.
  • Gloves: Water (Pantheon Set). To complete set.
  • Boots: Frost (Pantheon Set). To complete set.
  • Rings: Empyrean band x2.
  • Amulet: +4 all skills rare, banish proc, Lightning Arena oskill.



End Game

  • Weapon: SSU Stag Bow. %CB, 4 pierce, arrow proc, zon skills, flat damage, spiral dance. PERFECT.
  • Quiver: SSSU Arrow Quiver. Arrowside Proc. Or Bag of Tricks SSU Quiver.
  • Armor: Many options. I'm using SSSU Splint Mail for %DR, ele absorb, max res and normal res. This is useful for the first part of Kabraxis Uber. Other options are the common ones, Hralti's Craft, pretty much.
  • Helm: SSSU Cervelliere. Tri-ele damage/pierce, 5% max res. Other options are the obvious ones, YLFE Ban, Helepolis and Asgardsreia.
  • Belt: Tons of options too: TL;DR (flat 500 hp), SSSU Plated Belt has tons of life after kill, %DR, etc. but too high str requeriments. SSSU Belt is also nice (tri ele pierce/max hp).
  • Gloves: More options! Facebreaker, or SSSU Heavy gloves for broadside proc.
  • Boots: SSSU Heavy boots is probably the best option, SSSU Greaves are also nice but require much strength.
  • Rings: Bad mood ring x2.
  • Amulet: Beads of the Snake Queen, or a 4 all skills, banish / light arena rare.






Uberquests

Basic Gameplay: buff with War spirit, bloodlust, ecstatic frenzy and Familiar if you have it. Kill normal stuff with wyrmshot, kill bosses with Barrage. I will not write how to do the obvious ubers.


  • Cathedral of Vanity: make a TP outside the uber, enter, avoid lazorbeam, lure monsters, get close to Crystal Ball, spam barrage, die, repeat.
  • Toraja: try to get as much life on striking as possible, lure monsters 1 by one, when lilith isnt surrounded, summon 10 edyrems, blink at her, spam barrage and TP home.
  • Vizjun: monsters are killable, but rushing to MCS can and using purify fast is really easy.


  • Akarat: Spam barrage, summon, and run really fast to avoid hammers. Followers will die really fast, so run to Akarat and spam barrage while he still is vulnerable.
  • Lord Aldric Jitan: summon next to the entrance to halls, lure them 1 by one, then lure LAJ to the red portal, summon fire elementals, enter, he will be slowed and busy with eles, spam barrage, ele's on death proc + barrage should counter his lifeblood healing.
  • Judgement Day: use edyrems/fire elementals to keep Nephalems busy, drink a potion when boss spawns, and kill it.
  • Brother Laz: become a man and equip a 2-h sword, add a few more points into Wild and Free fore more running, get 100% open wounds, just purify and hit, then run, and repeat.


  • Kingdom of Shadow: make honorifics with FRW, hp when struck, teleport when struck and get 95% poison resists. Once you reach the narrow corridor, un-wear anything with teleport when struck, go home, summon edyrems, blink, go home, repeat, then kill boss with Barrage.
  • Duncraig: doable with TU's, with pantheon set is really easy. When you start, clear the first part with Ghost Arrow, once entrance is clear, enter and kill with wyrmshot/barrage while you keep running. Once reanimates popped, its easy.


  • Quov Tsin: wear SSU boots, and SSSU Splint Mail, and any more absorb you can get. Reach 95% res and 500% stacked resistances.
  • Astrogha: good luck for this one, kill him with barrage, its all about luck and not letting astrogha summon traps.

  • Kabraxis: have at least 90% res for first part if you wan't to do it death-free, make a tp, then kill the first mobs. After that, kill light boss with barrage, remember to avoid thunderstone every 3 seconds. Once that is done, kill Fire boss, remember every 3 seconds to move and let him cast Rain of Fire somewhere else. After that go to Ice boss and do the same as fire boss. Same for magic boss, this time its easy since you just need to avoid death spiral. Finally, for physical boss, just snipe him with ghost arrow or barrage.


Against kabraxis defensive harmony will keep him slowed, just spam barrage when far away from him, he will go to the center of the barrage and stand still for a few seconds, which means you need to go a bit far away to avoid broadside, and repeat. If he blinks to you, either start spamming barrage to kill skeletons, or just run away and kill them with Wyrmshot.

Just to be clear, this was a guide posted by MarcoNecroX on the old forum. I realized I had it saved and that it hadn't been upped here so I figured what the hell, why not!?

I believe that -enemy resistences to achieve -100% and probably life leach or LAEK. You could aso use fhr, frw, and even MF orbs. Endless light UMOs might be very useful as well.

Enhanced Damage in weapons and crushing blow as well. Its up to you actually.

Upgrade to 6e and farm Terror K3KBA, Fauztinville, Duncraig or Cow Level for sets Smile

Edit: Just realized you're struggling in A1... Make sure you've MO'd your items to have -100 enemy light/fire/cold (poison too if you're using Curare). SoV can also help here because of the reanimates. You can also put 30% reanimate skeleton on honorific gloves, they work well as meatshields.

Only terror uberlevels will drop sets (more specifically areas that are level 115 or higher). It was changed in 6e to be like this.
