I probably shouldn't do this, but I want to make a bow character. I built a new bowazon in D2 a few days ago, and the bug bit me lol. Looking at stuff, there are not a lot of builds around.
One thing, I need a pet to tank for me, so that narrows it down to warden or sorceress.
Since I usually play a magsorc, that would be my favorite, with the Clannfear to tank. Am I ok so far?
Character? Breton (for the mana and stuff), Redguard, or Imperial? Magic or Stamina??
I take it that once I use a bow, it will show up on the weapons list and I can get the bow-specific abilities from there?
With a pet tanking, there will only be 4 slots left on the front bar - is that enough?
What is the best Ult? I can use one of the magsorc U, or one specific to the bow use.
I thought I'd put some sorc abilities on the back with a healing staff, to take care of any enemy who gets close to me. Like a healing staff, clannfear, and the magsorc flying thingy, and a few DPS abilities.
If I absolutely need to put melee abilities on the back, then this adventure ends. I can handle a front bar, and some stuff (i.e., healing, and some spells) on the back bar. But having two bars with spells I cannot do.
Another option would be to use a warden, with a similar front bar, and then magward abilities on the back with a healing staff?
I'm used to playing with a clannfear tanking, but if a warden and his bear is better, I'll give it a shot. I've played a warden, and it seems to me the clannfear is more responsive.
Any help is appreciated.
