Amazons are known for their prowess wielding Throwing Spears, Javelins, and Bows, making them the Character of choice if you enjoy ranged combat. Don't underestimate her versatility in hand-to-hand combat though, as she can use Throwing Spears, Javelins, and Spears to become a fierce melee warrior.
The ultimate boss killing Skill, with no rival on any other Character, is the beloved Charged Strike. This Skill can smash Act bosses with a low budget. Fully geared, even the final boss, Baal, falls within a couple of hits.
Plague Javelin and Lightning Fury are incredibly strong at decimating large quantities of enemies. These Skills excel at clearing out The Secret Cow Level, a frequently used farming spot.
While using a bow, Multiple Shot, Strafe, and Freezing Arrow are frequently used to destroy your enemies. They are a bit more item dependent, so starting with these options is not recommended!
Compared to other Characters, the Amazon is among the slowest. She doesn't have a native mobility Skill, therefore, she relies on Enigma to increase her speed. Her low Cast Rate makes the use of Teleport rather painful. In addition to that, not all builds can incorporate it, which makes running the only option for those.
Every Character has the Attributes Strength, Dexterity, Vitality and Energy. At maximum Level, a Character has access to 505 Stat Points which can be allocated into the Attributes. While Vitality only affects the Life pool and Energy only affects the Mana pool of your Character, Strength and Dexterity have additional uses:
Generally, Stat Points are only allocated to this Attribute to wear your gear, however, Strength has an additional use: it increases the Physical Damage portion of melee attacks.
Generally, Stat Points are only allocated to this Attribute to wear your gear, however, Dexterity has 4 additional uses:
- It increases the % Chance to Block up to 75 while using a Shield.
- The Attack Rating of every attack is increased, improving the Chance to hit your target.
- Every 4th Stat Point into Dexterity increases the base Defense of the Character by 1.
- On ranged builds, Dexterity increased the Physical Damage portion of your attacks.

Breakpoints are an integral way to improve your Character's performance. For in-depth explanations on them, please check out our article on Breakpoints.
Hit Recovery Rate
Every Character has 3 Skill Trees in which they can allocate Skill Points to increase their power. Each Skill Tree consists of a total of 10 Skills, and you can assign a maximum of 20 points per Skill. These Skills are placed into 6 rows, which represent the 6 Skill tiers. While tier 1 is available at Character Level (clvl) 1, the other tiers get available at clvl 6, 12, 18, 24, and 30.
Every Character gains access to 110 Skill Points (98 from Level-Ups and 12 from quests).
Not every Skill is available right away. The arrows on the Skill Tree show the prerequisites needed to obtain Skills further down the Tree.
Example: You have to put a Skill Point into Jab and Impale to gain access to Fend.
A lot of Skills have Synergies, which are Skills that passively boost the strength of another Skill. The main Skill shows how much a Synergy increases its power per Skill Point allocated into it.
Example: The base Lightning Damage of Charged Strike is increased by a summed up multiplier which increases by 10% for each Skill Point allocated into Power Strike, Lightning Bolt, Lightning Strike, and Lightning Fury.
The Amazon has a variety of builds to choose from:
Character Specific Gear
Every Character has exclusive items that only it can use. For the Amazon, these are split into 3 different Weapon types. All the Amazon specific items spawn with "Auto Mods", giving +1-3 to their respective Skill Trees.
