Diablo II: The Amazon


This powerful woman warrior belongs to nomadic bands who roam the plains near the South Sea. The wandering of these groups often brings them into conflict with other peoples, so the Amazon is accustomed to fighting to defend her own. This lifestyle has made her fiercely independent and able to weather severe hardship and travel. While her skill with the bow rivals that of the Rogues, the Amazon is also adept in the use of spears and other throwing weapons, as well as in hand to hand combat. The Amazon is much sought after as a mercenary, in which type of service she will be loyal as long as her own ends are also served.

Her obvious strength lies in ranged attacks and as well as being able to fire a bow or throw a javelin she can enhance these attacks by way of imbuing the weapons with various magical effects such as poison, cold and lightning.  There are also skills which will improve her overall proficiency in their uses, for instance, 'Penetrate' and 'Pierce' in her Passive & Magic tree will increase her % chance to hit and ability to strike more than one monster with an arrow or javelin. She has six Passive skills at her disposal and the effects of these will be noticeable after at least one point has been awarded to them.  As well as passive attack skills there are also those focused on improving her movement such as Dodge, Avoid and Evade allowing her to move clear of close-range and distance attacks.

The Amazon begins equipped with a Javelin and these are thrown and currently exhaustible.  She starts with 28 in her backpack, where they are stackable but this may change during testing.  Javelins can be purchased from Charsi in Act I and they are also occasionally dropped by monsters.

Fortunately she also has a selection of melee attacks at her disposal so going toe-to-toe with an opponent won't be as dangerous as it was in Diablo.  Spears are her weapon of choice in this area and as with javelins bonus attacks can be applied to improve their effectiveness such as 'Jab' and 'Lightning Strike'.
