    I plan on maxing out charged strike and lightning fury for attacks. I also plan on putting some points in the passive skills. Should I put some points into a valkyrie?

    you gotta put 1 into evade, dodge and the other one. Your equipment will raise them

    Max lightning Strike and all its synergies, charged strike is awesome also

    LS :shoot LF

    haha its so funny to see you talk

    LF > LS

    why? Because you get massive furies ONLY when there are like 100000 monsters

    either way, bowazon with WF > Javas.

    Run, guide arrow, and run, guide arrow :O

    and use search button for bowazon build. (djnat's)

    lol, bowazons die in like, what, 1 shot? javazons actually require some skill, like a thing called "tanking", heard of it? bowazons just run and stay in the back like little sissies and i dont see any bowazons going through hell solo easily, do you?

    Ever heard of passives? Ever heard of djnat's build, which does chaos sanctuary run in like 10 min which javazon can?

    Bowazon is underrated because of NO PIERCE IN GUIDE ARROWS OMFG LOL LOL

    tanking isnt much of a skill. u stand there and hold ur main attack on the target and pray ull survive the beats.

    bowazons take more skill now cuz running around is the way to survive, and knowing which direction to run and where and when to shoot are important things that improve with practice.

    o yea... LS adds lightning dmg to ur attack. thats it. i hope ur refering to CS cuz thats what ppl use most in duels now. LF is superior to all other skills when it comes to crowd control...dont forget it.

    hey...why not make a hybridzon then? solves the conflict between javs and bows by unifying them.

    Damn, sry I should have posted it when I put that post up...

    20 LF
    20 CS
    8 to all passives, (not pierce or penetrate)
    and some points into other java skill synergies (it was intended to be Javazon)
    5 guide arrows
    3 Multi shot

    If I were to make new jav, I would only max out LF, CS, Guide, Power Strike and Multi shot.
    and put 1~8 to all passives.

    Shes about level 80 right now, I pwned some lvl 90 sorcs in pvp rooms.

    stats
    str: item requirement
    dex: 250~300 (cant remember exact)
    vit: rest (900 life right now)
    energy: none

    She lacks resistance a bit, thats the only flaw I have in this build (I think....)

    Also, Multishot is good in pvp when enemies are scattered out.. (espeically sorcs teleporting)

    ...lol, i still say bowazons stink, and untill i can see someone own a decent pvp character with one, i wont think they are good.

    LS handles crowds pretty good, lol, 37 hits? yeah, i usually dont get hit much, even with my tons of life... lol

    running takes SKILL? lol, i know NEWBS that can run... hmmm... running isnt the way to survive, what if your bowazon gets surrounded? she has NO chance of survival, if a javazon gets surrounded, she has a good chance of survival... if it wasnt for tanking characters, probably 3/4s of the bowazons would get owned with ease.

    lol, look at the synergies, are you people just slow or crazy?
    LS > LF IN SYNERGIES AND IN DMG! 37 HITS OVER AND OVER AND OVER DOESNT HANDLE MASSIVE GROUPS? ROFL!! I give up on you people, sometimes your just helpless

    dude, your not getting the point

    the fury owns LS, its that simple

    Honestly, do you see people use LS more than LF? I dont think so.

    And Bowazon is still good, wf with good boots and fast run scs, you can practically own most pvpers.

    And bowazon that gets surrounded is played by newbs.

    Honestly... know the skills of bowazons before you do anything, and know how LF works, it can hit like 5 furies per monster.
