2/23/2022 2:43:02 PM

Amazon is the fastest killer of bosses in Diablo 2 Resurrected, she absolutely murders them with the charged strike. Ultimately if you get really stacked up, you can like one-shot baal in hell. It's crazy how much damage you can actually do with this D2R Ladder Start character. Today we're going to find out is Amazon the best starter class for Diablo 2 Resurrected ladder reset.



1. Big Late Damage

While Amazon does not start out with the craziest of high damage, it actually has been improved they have boosted up exploding arrow which is actually super nice and super helpful. And that has been a nice big boost to her. Poison javelin is still okay. The Amazon starts off a little bit slow, they have actually improved her by giving her a little bit better like exploding arrow, immolation arrow now is a little bit improved. They've looked a little bit at poison and so poison and plague javelin have improved, so it does help out somewhat. 

But the biggest piece for amazon is the big late damage that she has. She just has insanely strong late damage where you can just go out and absolutely murder anything. It's just such a big benefit to this character. Overall, she doesn't even need a lot of good gear. This character has okay gear on but it's nothing like amazing and she easily destroys stuff and then you get into the cows and those sorts of areas and she's just crushing even further.


2. Lots Of Cheap Builds

The nice thing about the Amazon is she really does not require a ton of gear. If you want to optimize and get yourself the griffins and get yourself self all of the like added stuff, yes it can get a little bit pricey. But to start out, you can really just run around with whatever sorts of basic things that you find, spirit and laying of hands, you don't even need titans, you can just get garbage white javelins and still do so much damage. This is because her skills like lightning fury and charge strike and even plague jab all these things, just do a ton of damage. Additionally, even if you go into bow and crossbow, freezing arrow, exploding arrow, emulation arrow, you still don't need to have wind force or any crazy bows for this stuff. 

You can literally just run around with basic harmony and whatever easy bows that you can find. You can run a coldzon, a firezon, a cold fire mix zon, a javazon poison or lightning. There are really just so many different builds and it just doesn't cost a lot. None of them are going to be insanely expensive, none of them are going to require you to have an enigma. Though physical bowazon will require a lot of gear overall a lot of the builds on this character are super cheap and fun.

3. Cows

This is the best cow farmer in the game. Cows are amazing for finding bases. Especially early on a lot of people want bases for all their D2R ladder runewords. Their spirit monarchs, their enigmas that they're maybe going to try and make. Going after all those high runes and all of those are worth so much. Because everybody is really trying to make all of these nice rune words. So being able to be the best cow killer in the game and being able to work up to players eight cows which she ultimately can crush through players eight cows. 

Once you get her fully equipped with all of her gear, it's amazing. This might be one of the best characters in the game for starting out in Diablo 2 Resurrected Ladder Season.


4. Chaos With Groups/Baals

She is a great character to run in baals and chaos waves. Just bring her in especially if you have a paladin that's running conviction or a necker that's dropping lower res. Any of this stuff, just adds so much damage to the party. You're going to be able to double the speed that everybody there can clear through these areas. At the start of Ladder, everybody is still here looking to level up, looking to go do chaos and baals all over and over again and you are one of the characters that really speed it up, really adds a lot of damage, and is super useful.
