Lunarbreeze - Amazon

Character Intro and Overview

Please note that this hall of glory -page is still under writing. I'll try to finish this page soon.

Lunarbreeze is a kind of remake of my strafer amazon from a ladder few seasons ago. Originally I thought of doing a Dance of Death -amazon but when things started to turn harder (late nm ~ early hell) I respecced into bow tree and haven't turned back.

Strafers are very powerful characters in the Eastern Sun so after some playing I learnt that she could make a really good gold finder. The idea of turning her into one grew in my mind for quite a while and after I had reached level 100, I gathered up some easy to get GF gear. She gets really vulnerable with that but that is allright.

She can be described being a glass cannon -type of character as she shoots a lot of arrows very quickly dealing lots of damage but if something reaches her and actually lands a hit, she is in trouble. However her speed, life leech, amount of cc and sturdy Valkyries make it sure that reaching her won't be easy.

She can do any area in the game in /p8 mode easily and most of the areas can be teleported around without too much risk. This gave me the idea of doing gold find in one of the hardest places in Eastern Sun: in the hellish depths of Naraku.

Running gold works this way. She teleports her way using the main combat gear to the entrance to The Dead End. There she creates a town portal, goes to town, swaps her GF equipment on and returns to the naraku. The Dead End contains only three type of monsters: Gold Scarabs, those annoying swarm things and Master Thieves. None of them are particularly dangerous so her low stats are not a problem. After the dead end is clear, she returns to the town with 3-5M gold.

Stats and Attributes

All hardpoints are put into Dexterity for more damage. Strength, vitality and energy are left to the base values.

Here are some screenshots of her stats with buffs and auras on. The left side stats are with main combat gear and right stats are with gold find equipment.

  • Massive drop in her damage with gf gear is caused by the lack of Eagle Eye (Burst of Speed from Thief runeword overwrites it), generic damage modifiers and lesser amount of +skills. Ex
  • Amount of life lost is huge with gf gear as she loses Oak Sage with it and there is slightly less +All Skills to boost Battle Orders.
  • Excessive Crushing Blow with combat gear is caused by the fact that I aimed for 100% crushing blow with earlier gear setups that didn't provide me Annihilation aura or enough ias to use Eagle Eye.
  • With gf gear her resistances fall to around ~0 which would be pretty harsh with only 2k health but luckily The Dead End isn't elemental heavy level.



Here is her skill distribution. As can be seen some vital skills are left without a single base point. Those skills can be obtained with oskills which makes it so that it is better to spend those saved skillpoints in synergys.

  • Slow missiles is obtained from Veteran's Charm.
  • Valkyrie is obtained from one Larias' Licentious Lament Jewel.

As can be seen Valkyrie gets to fairly high level even without hard points. The skill level actually better than on the second image as I use my weapon swap when I cast them. With Defiance, Battle Orders and all the other beneficial auras the two Valkyries of mine can tank anything Eastern Sun has to offer. Only rarely some bosses before Baal can kill them but even then the Valkyries are sturdy enough to give me enough time to recast and rebuff them. It might be possible to go with 0 or 1 point in Decoy and live with one Valkyrie but with just 4.4k life I want to have two around for some extra safety.
