The Amazon class is a long-ranged combatant that can wield both javelins and bows. Moreover, Amazons have the ability to combine their ranged attacks with magic spells, making them the perfect support class who are capable of dealing heavy damage and applying stat debuffs to enemies. However, with the right build, they can also be carried Solo, but work best in groups. Furthermore, The Amazon class does not need to be paired with the most expensive gear or the rarest rune words to perform well in combat; as the warrior is able to breeze through the early game relying mostly on her skills. In this guide, we will break down all the best Amazon builds in Diablo 2, along with our top picks for pieces of equipment or gear you can pair the Amazon class with.

Amazon Builds

Bowazon

This is one of the most popular Amazon Archer build in Diablo 2 that takes advantage of the Amazon warrior’s archery proficiency and magic abilities. While the bow on its own won’t deal much damage, imbuing it with magic can deal devastating damage to enemies. This build is perfect for support. You will need to max out the following skills: Multiple Arrow, Guide Arrow, Strafe. We have outlined the complete skill and stat point distribution for the Bowazon (Bow Amazon) build below:

Bowazon Skill Point Distribution

  • Multiple Shot – 20
  • Guide Arrow – 20
  • Strafe – 20
  • Inner Sight – 10

  • Dexterity – Dump most stat points into Dexterity.
  • Energy – Keep at Base level.
  • Vitality – Up to 100 is ideal.

Lightning Javazon

The second-most popular Amazon build is most probably the Lightning Javazon, which utilizes the warrior’s Javelin. The lightning javazon build is great for taking down large mobs of enemies or taking down a single large enemy. One could even say that this build is the ideal one for playing Solo. This build relies heavily on the Amazon’s vitality, with not much attention to energy or dexterity as you don’t need it to wield Javelins. For this build, you will need to max out the following skills: Power Strike, Charged Strike, Lightning Strike, Lightning Fury. We have outlined the complete skill and stat point distribution for the Lightning Javazon (Lightning Javelin Amazon) build below:

Plagazon

This Javelin-based build is perhaps the most unique build as the Amazon deals poison damage to her enemies when attacking. For the Plagazon build, players can opt for mastering the Plague Javelin and Poison Javelin, which serve as an excellent build for passive players. The Plague Javelin is best for crowd control and the Poison Javelin increases the effectiveness of the Plague Javelin.

Equipment

As we have mentioned before, the Amazon warrior relies mostly on her skills than the strength of her weapons. Not only that, she can imbue magic in her attacks to increase the damage output. With that being said, we still think that Titan’s revenge is the best weapon you can pair her with if you’re going for a Javelin-based build.
