Infinity Spear Amazon Build Guide D2R 2.5

Infinity Spear Amazon Introduction

Since patch 2.4, the Infinity runeword can be made in Amazon Spears, thus the Infinity Spear Amazon was born. As Infinity is a very expensive runeword, the build is not a viable ladder starter, but later in the season the weapon becomes accessible at affordable prices. The Infinity Spearzon is extremely strong, and is amongst the strongest builds in the entire game. You will have a lot of fun playing it!

The Spearzon excels mainly at farming dense areas. Even on an 8 player difficulty farming spots like The Cow Level, Chaos Sanctuary or Worldstone Keep will be no issue, especially since the Sunder charms were introduced to the game, making it possible to get rid of lightning immune monsters. 

The build is viable on Hardcore, as it can have decent survivability. If you look for a Boss Farmer though, you might want to put an Enigma on your amazon and use teleportation instead of running. The Magic Finding potential of the build is decent, you can easily have up to 500% MF.


Gameplay


Attacking skills: The build uses Charged Strike and Lightning Strike as attacking skills. Lightning Strike hits many targets at once, and it allows you to quickly clear a wider area of monsters. Charged Strike is great against single targets, as it releases over 10 charged bolts, dealing up to 50k damage with a single hit. 


Movement: When it comes to movement, nothing comes close to Teleportation, so if your goal is to move quickly between areas, you will need an Enigma runeword or items with Teleport charges. However the run speed of your character should be decent anyways.


Survivability: Survivability of Infinity Amazons is very gear-dependent. You should have a Call to Arms as a switch weapon in order to cast Battle Orders, which can almost double your life. You should aim for 75% all resistances on Hell (use allresist charms), and if you play Hardcore, physical damage reduction % gear will also come very handy.


Party and Solo play: As the build is capable of dealing with monsters on player 8, you should be the star of the party when it comes to clearing areas with high monster density. Other party members will also benefit from your Conviction aura, which reduces enemy resistances by 85%.


Magic Find: This build is not optimal for farming Bosses, sorceresses are much more fit to do that. However when it comes to Chaos Sanctuary or Throne of Destruction farming, it really excels. If you wear Magic find gear and MF charms, you can reach up to 500% MF.

Mercenary

Have an Act2 mercenary with Holy Freeze aura for crowd control.

Ethereal items don’t lose durability if your mercenary wears them, so having ethereal item bases for each gear slot is preferred due to the increased defense on armor items and increased damage on weapons. In many instances ethereal items that are great for mercenaries will be much more expensive than non-ethereal ones.
