The Lightning Fury/Charged Strike Amazon, aka “Javazon”, is the most powerful and versatile Amazon build from mid-Nightmare difficulty onwards. The Javazon excels at effortlessly plowing through densely packed mobs with her Primary Skill, Lightning Fury, while simultaneously boasting unrivaled single target damage with Charged Strike. From Cow culling to Boss melting, this build is a meat grinder. In sending Lightning bolts scattering across the screen with Lightning Fury, the Javazon also commands a high “coolness” factor.
The Javazon’s almost exclusively deals Lightning Damage with fairly insignificant Physical Damage mixed in. With Infinity equipped on your Mercenary, Lightning becomes the element with the fewest Immunity-related issues due to its Conviction Aura. This positions the Lightning Fury Amazon as a top-tier, jack-of-all-trades loot/Experience farm power house. However, because most Hell areas contain Lightning Immune monsters, farming options are limited until you have access to Infinity.
This build guide assumes you have a Character at Level 75 before transitioning to it. It follows the progression of our Amazon Leveling Guide and our General Leveling Strategies to reach Level 75.

In this build, we allocate enough Stat Points to Strength to equip all of our gear. Be mindful of how much Strength your gear needs and how much it provides when equipped. If the gear piece with the highest Strength requirement also provides you with additional Strength, you can use the Strength bug to equip that item. Check out the Mechanics Section below for details.
After you put your Stat Points into Strength and Dexterity, make sure to check if it is recommended to put Stat Points into Energy. Meet the suggested amount of Energy and put any remaining Stat Points into Vitality.
