DE RE HUNKYZON All you ever wanted to know about a Buriza wielding Magic Find Amazon Buriza Do Kanyon I had to figure out who to make frames on Angelfire so we all could have a more readable guide. Took me 4 days to figure it all out. Have patience, the guide will be here soon!

Character

The following example will be replaced by a new HunkyZon because she has a flaw (IHMO)in her build ie. only 100 Strength naturally. The following char is used to demonstrate what is possible with a FunkyZon: IamaMindlessKillingMachineHunkyZon LEVEL 99 RESISTANCES (HELL) 75,75,75,75 LIFE 736 - 426 (blue is base value) MANA 262 - 162 DEXTERITY 536 - 410 STRENGTH 110 - 100 VITALITY 70 - 60 ENERGY 15 - 15 STAMINA 232 - 222 DAMAGE 1492 - 3891 (Strafe level 7) 1451 - 3840 (Guided Arrow level 1) 1491 - 3891 (Freezing Arrow level 1) 1088 - 2880 Multishot level 15) ATTACK RATING 7647 DEFENSE RATING 1465 FASTER RUN 40% MAGIC FIND 318 at full resistances. 410 at 65,75,75,51 (Dex at 467, AR at 6154) 554 with 2nd weapon slot ala Inka's patented idea. ELEMENTAL DAMAGE POISON 625 (175lc/27 life, 175lc/23 life, 175sc/14 life, 100sc/13 life) FIRE 41 - 72 (27-42 lc w 22 life, 14-30lc w 27 life) LIGHTNING 4 - 119 1-35sc/13 life, 1-34sc/19 life, 1-27sc/12 life, 1-18 sc/18 life) COLD 47 - 241 Buriza and Ravenfrost. Remember the elemental damage is included in the damage you see on your screen.

Equipment

Equipment used: Tal Rasha Helm 130 defense with UM or 126 defense with Perfect Topaz Tal Rasha Armor 928 defense with UM Tal Rasha Belt 40 defense with 15% MF Buriza 200% Enhanced damage with 105 defense socketed with a Shael rune Chance Guards 39% or Rare Gloves with 16 Dex, 30% MF, 22% Fire Resist War Travellers 124 defense (160%) with 46% MF Tal Set is one of the best choices for an Amazon if you want a chance on more than decent Magic Find coupled with maxed resistances. An Ummed Tal Mask and Tal Armor will give you 85% to all resistances except Poison which will have 45%. That is a lot of bang for your dollars. The armor has 15 Magic Damage reduce and when you wear 3 items from the set you get a +10 Life replenish. it may seem measly +10 Life Replenish but it helps to "soften" poison damage attacks from most sources. Which will go a long way to make up for the lower Poison Resistance this combo offers. Achmel di Borghesia in the Throne of Destruction is one example where it does not help much due to his insane poison damage. The belt has +20 to dexterity which is always welcome to an Amazon. The helm which is despised by some fashion loonies takes care of all your leech and can be UMmed, Perfect Topazed or Fervored depending on the situation or your needs. A legit Tal Armor can be a tad rare (bloody understatement Hunky!) so an alternative is a SMOKEd (+50% all resistances) Wyrmhide or DuskShroud which can reach in the 800s on defense even when non- ethereal. You will loose a hefty chunck of Magic Find though. A Lionheart though very tempting due to its amazing bonusses, is a less desirable choice due to its lower defense value but you might consider it as an option so give it a look. Nothing much to say about this one. This is Blizzard's quick and dirty fix to cover up for the horrible job they did in patch 1.08 and 1.09 to us Amazons. The fact that it can have max 150 to defense says it all. It has 100% piercing, a chance to Freeze monsters that can go as high as 41.6% at level 99 while Strafing or Multishotting, +35 to Dexterity and a hefty 32-196 Cold damage. Yes, it is slow but who cares, it does the job. Choices to socket can be: Shael, a good Fervor jewel for speed, a Perfect Skull for leech, an Ist Rune for Magic Find, a Mal Rune to prevent Monster Heal or some of the more esoteric runes like Jah for Ignore Target Defense or Lo for Deadly Strike. Socketing a Cham will raise your chance to Freeze to 48.3% at level 99. Now that is some crowd control. Last but not least a Hel rune can lower the Strength requirement to 88. Top jewel choices would be +15 resistances all /-15 requirements or +15 resistances all/+15% IAS. Never seen either one of those jewels drop though. NEVER EVER I repeat NEVER bother to raise the damage, it just is NOT worth it. A 150% ED Buriza is just as good as an 200% Buriza in doing the job of killing monsters. A PERFECT Buriza is one that has +150 on defense, the higher your defense the lower the chance the monsters will hit you. That will make a noticable difference if coupled with high passive skills like Dodge/Avoid/Evade. Chance Guards for the MF bonus but it also has 200% to Gold Find, couple that with 2 Dwarfstar rings, the Ali Baba and the Rhyme shield and you end up with 697% Gold Find. Give your Merc a Wealth armor and you can do Nightmare Travincal runs with 997% to Gold Find for some quick money. All it takes extra are the Dwarfstar rings and/or the Wealth Armor. Nothing spectacular (a Barbarian can have up to 3K% Gold Find) but nice to have available at such a low resource cost. A blessing in disguise or rather a pain in the ehr where the Sun does not illuminate a certain spot, these boots offer the highest Magic Find on boots. And on top of that some nice additional mods which are quite handy for an Amazon like +10 to strength, +10 to Vitality, +15-+25 to damage, 40% Slower Stamina Drain and 25% Faster Run Walk. Strength required to wear them is 95 though. If you Hel your Buriza you save 22 statpoints which you can use elsewhere. Wartravellers will eat up 7 of those 22 points so decide if you really want to use them. A really good alternative are the boots from the Cow King set. They have 30% Faster Run Walk, +20 to dexterity, +25% to Magic Find and 25-35 to Fire Damage and probably much easier to get than Wartravellers. If you need more life Waterwalk boots are quite good too with extra life and even 15 dexterity to name a few of the mods on it. some rings, an amulet and a couple of charms. Her second weapon slot is usually filled with an Alibaba with a 10% MF jewel in it (still looking for another one) and a Rhyme Shield. Mercenary is a Holy Freeze Merc from act 2 Nightmare. The above approaches the classic FunkyZon the most.

If a Monster has Cold Resistance that will cut down the Duration of the Freeze by the percentage of Cold Resistance the monster has. If Duration is 100 frames and Monster Cold Resistance is 50% then The resulting Duration would be 100 * 0.50 = 50 frames.
