Connie - Assassin

Character Intro and Overview

I did a major re-do of my main strafer. I decided to ditch my second Zon which was pure GF strafer with 3k to gold find - just not enough power to do hell cows and the Domain. Thus, I needed a replacement gold finder and decided to just re-work Bambi.

When you have a bunch of characters as I do, you generally play what you enjoy. Having a powerful strafer is very relaxing, not too much stress. This is pretty much the ideal farming character IMHO - safe and easy. I'd say that this character has pretty much farmed everything for all my other characters (except for what they accumulated during leveling).

I decided to keep my old character Bambi up in a separate hall of glory as a good template for a cheap strafer.

Stats and Attributes

Summary of major changes from Bambi.

#1 Damage went from (6.4k-43k) to (17k-79). Better bow, Eagle Eye, Fanat, more strafe synergies since I went back to 1 Valk. AR went from 23k to 35k. So, basically a way better killer - about double damage at the end of the day.

#2 Emphasing GF over MF. Gold Find went from 815% to 1630%. Magic find decreased from 649% to 243%. Still lots of rares and uniques because of diminishing returns on MF.

#3 I replicated the 3kish life and max resists and max deadly strike and crushing blow.



All Dex build as are most strafers. 1 point in all the passives I use except for Valk which I maxed (level 68 in case you wondered). Pierce large charm to save a skill point.

All other points went into Strafe and synergies.

Eagle Eye was offset by the level 34 fanat and level 12 Annil.


I Forged all equipment and unique charms +1 to raise the Fanat 0-skill which is at level 34. I D-stoned Dex into the helm - mainly just to keep the total # of items the same (to avoid the bug). I added +gold find to the rings and amulets and +resists and life where I could on the Armor, belt, boots. I obsidian melded the gloves for +%dam and crit strike.

My bow isn't duel max, but it spawned with what I consider the most important stat, the +300% (on level 100) exhanced max damage. It had 300ish ED on it innately and a few other items. Since I didn't feel the need to spend a lot of resources on the bow it was plenty fine for my uses. The picture shows the bow socketed and d-stoned with +%damage but un-mapled. I did not go with my best %ED jewels, I threw in a couple I had laying around that had the combination of some AR%, 30%+ ED, minimum damage.


Merc and Merc Equipment

Same as Bambi except I replaced the Defiance aura with Concentration. With the 50% slow on the main character's gloves the Merc was hardy enough to survive all but the last few champions in the Realm (where it was 50/50 depending on how I played).


  • I have a dual max bow forged with damage, I'd say they're comparable since dual maxes dont necessarily spawn with ED%, and it seems neither of us have the resources to cap 900% ed anyways -- howlinghobo? 10-25-2011 (Tue) 09:55:17
  • You do know that Burst of Speed overwrites Eagle eye I hope, and you should look for a dual max bow. I use a dual max bow, tassel set (belt to gloves) with goldark belt, Ra forged lvl 60 dex jewels of the wererat, hit 17-82k dmg and 2.5k gold find -- DKing? 03-26-2011 (Sat) 19:29:56
  • that's one heck of a bow.. did you all-out use forging hammers on that? I'm thinking of moving off the noir's set myself, but that's a diff character entirely.. -- psycho2? 08-09-2010 (Mon) 14:02:42
  • Recommend trying out wearing 3x pair of Suffoctions of Indifference? Overall not bad but you should be pushing 100k+ with Eagle Eye + Fanta. -- Daishi_GD? 08-08-2010 (Sun) 19:53:03
