For frozen arrow you want to add as much cold damage since it will add to the duration
I thought the only way to add to the duration of freeze was via cold arrow and frost nova. Cold damage is just that, cold damage. If you're talking about the general cold effect I already have that in the bow itself and some random charm lol.

best weapon is the LoD Ice runeword. The holy freeze attack damage will add to the spash damage.
So basically Freeze Arrow benefits from re-splashing and multiplying itself based on how much it hits something?
So did anyone try to make a freeze amazon next to the magic arrow amazon? Doesn't seem to make much sense.
I can get Magic Arrow to level 30 and with my stuff and synergies that's 3k damage. I can get Freeze Arrow to level 20 and with the same stuff and synergies it's 1k damage. The freeze effect becomes pretty bad already in Nightmare with some monsters despite the cold arrow synergy (30 points), and putting points in Freeze Arrow doesn't make it freeze longer. The AoE can be compensated by Pierce just fine, and on lots-of-health monsters AoE is pointless anyway. The only other synergy for freeze is Frost Nova which is a pretty useless skill in this respect and doesn't synergize magic arrow...
So what's the point of freeze arrow if magic arrow both deals more damage and is not affected by cold immunes and doesn't waste arrows or mana...? The only thing I see is that magic arrow takes 30 points vs freeze arrow taking 20 so that could be advantageous somewhere. Does it level out and become insignificant later with items or something?
As far as I know, it doesn't matter what version of Hamachi you use since the function you need to use is just connecting to other peoples' computers through LAN.
People use Hamachi instead of the default LAN because it may work better and/or because it organizes stuff like networks and what not which normal LAN, I believe, does not... I would use whatever you guys use but I saw Hamachi mentioned multiple times.

I don't see why you shouldn't get the latest version of Hamachi, though, besides that.
Well, I didn't write that for no reason. StarCraft LAN had issues when working with latest version of Hamachi, not permitting more than 2 players in a game, for instance. I don't know if this was updated maybe in more versions while I wasn't playing. Some programs get worse with later versions...
Anywho, for the cold arrow zon, you should definitely use magic arrow as your left click, and cold with your right. With enough skill points, magic arrow becomes mana-free. It also buffs up cold arrow, so it's win win ^^.
That's seriously the most awesome tip ever. I'm going to so do that once I get a few levels...
I'm trying to make an ice arrow amazon since in DII that really didn't work out well... I'm getting owned... got through cold plains and burial ground so far though.
I love all the weirdo little things I keep finding, though. Ancient Scrolls? Dark Archer Heart? xD
