With this gear you will be able to meet that mark 9 MultiShot 24 Evade 24 Evade 1 10 Dodge 25 MultiShot 18 Penetrate 1 Damage is key. 11 MultiShot 26 MultiShot 1 Critical Strike 4 On that note, search for bows with higher damage than Blast. 12 MultiShot 27 MultiShot 6 MultiShot 20 13 MultiShot 28 MultiShot After a few runthroughs I've decided that getting goldwrap and treads equipped is a must. I can't take slow attack and I can't handle running not at max 14 MultiShot 29 MultiShot velocity. So work your str/dex back up so you can wear them both. Unfortunately, at lvl 25 you (or maybe it's just me) lack 3 dex points. Pop the 15 Avoid 30 Pierce Mahim Oak back on and your good for one quick level. If for some reason you don't feel you can hit enemies effectively, after level 18 feel free to put points in penetrate instead of multishot These charts serve as a reference to create a mid level zon in as little time as possible. Why? For 2 quick imbues. Why not 3? Easy, you only need one horadric staff for 2 imbues. It's too much of a pain to get 2 a The top charts show which items are necessary for this to happen. Some items aren't used but I'm using them as a more expe The middle displays what items can be worn at which levels and also displays where to allocate stat points per level. The bottom is a chart showing stat/skill point allocation. Since Blastbark can be equipped at level 5, one could easily do without pluckeye and wizendraw and use the javelin until level 5 Also, it's helpful if you have another character/friend to supply you with waypoints instead of running around finding them yourse Leveling up to 11 I'd suggest Tristram Up to around 21 I'd say Canyon of the Magi Up to around 30 stick it out in Act IV Of course, this goes without saying, play in 6+ player games. Kinda optional but it's nice to have a high level character who has not done the staff quest so that that character can continually Because there are said weapons listed does not mean those are the only ones to use, if you find a higher damage bow go ahead and equip it, I only listed uniques because the unique bows offer some interesting stats. After a few runthoughs you will find good replacement bows for the ones listed so use this as a starting point.

Meaning the King's mod can be worn at level 26 ~ Akuo es. It's too much of a pain to get 2 and it defeats the "as little time as possible" bit. d but I'm using them as a more experimental type of object. cate stat points per level. ndraw and use the javelin until level 5. f running around finding them yourself. so that that character can continually do it with minimal effort u find a higher damage esting stats. as a starting point.
