Amazon Skills in Diablo 2 are the Skills that the Amazon use to attack, defend and otherwise face down the minions of hell. Every Class has three main Skill trees, each of them composed of 10 different Skills.

The Amazon skill trees are Bow and Crossbow Skills, Passive and Magic Skills and Javelin and Spear Skills.

Amazon Skills to make the best of your build and maximize your abilities, it is important to synergize it with the best Runewords available and the different types of Weapons available for such builds.

 

Important Note: With the release of Patch 2.4 these skills have suffered some changes:

Bow and Crossbow Skills:
  • Fire bow skills are receiving damage scaling improvements at higher levels so that they consistently fulfill their fire elemental damage type roles for their level tier
  •  Mana costs were reduced for the elemental arrow skills to give them more general usage
  • Strafe will no longer have weapon damage reduction and will also provide Attack Rating so that it can have distinctive advantages over the other physical bow skills.

 

Passive and Magic Skills:
  • Added some quality-of-life changes to certain Passive and Magic Skills
  • Inner Sight and Slow Missiles radius improved.
  • For Dodge and Avoid, the animation can now be interrupted and will no longer lock out the Amazon from performing other actions.

 

Javelin and Spear Skills:
  • The main changes give more advantages for using Amazon melee skills, freeing up skill synergy reliance on “Lightning Fury”, which will make the lightning melee skills a cheaper skill point alternative to build around.
  • Impale and Fend have improved the power.
  • lague Javelin has received improvements with Casting Delay, damage synergy, and duration scaling, to further diversify its usage compared to Poison Javelin.
