The fastest way to level an Amazon is by starting as a Poison Javelin Amazon to begin, with substantial points also put into Power Strike and, eventually, Charged Strike. At level 35, the leveling Amazon should respec into a Lightning Fury Amazon, which will easily carry you to around level 75, where you can respec again into the endgame build of your choice (unless you decide to stick with Lightning Fury).
Leveling General Tips
- From level 30 onward most builds will focus on lightning damage, but be aware that at higher difficulties most monsters resist it. You’ll need to find workarounds such as the unique Thunderstroke javelin.
- At the very beginning of the game, you will want to save your Skill points until you reach Level 6 (aside from a single point in Jab), since there is nothing really to buy for the Amazon until then.
- You will respec around Level 35. When you do, you will switch into a Lightning Fury build.
As a martial class in the thick of combat the Amazon is best served by putting all the points she can into Vitality, only buying enough into Strength and Dexterity to equip gear. Energy has some situational uses, but isn’t typically worth the trade-off in health.
- Level 2: Dexterity
- Level 3-8: Vitality
- Level 9: Strength
- Level 10-19: Vitality
- Level 20-21: Strength
- Level 22-34: Vitality
For your Respec at Level 35:
- 25 to Strength
- 25 to Dexterity
- Remainder to Vitality for the rest of the build.
