Strafe is a level 24 skill from the Amazon's Bow & Crossbow Skill Tree.

Strafe[edit]

Required Level: 24
Prerequisites: Magic Arrow, Multiple Shot, Cold Arrow, Guided Arrow
Synergies: None.
Details: Strafe can turn the Amazon into a machine gun, allowing her to fire a stream of shots from a single arrow. Since the Guided Arrow/Pierce bug was fixed in v1.09, Strafe is the best single-target skill in most situations.

  • Use Strafe on single targets, a few targets, or numerous monsters in a tight cluster. Each arrow does more damage than Multishot, and can hit multiple targets with Pierce.
  • Post v1.09, high level Strafe fires all 10 arrows every time, regardless of how many targets are in range. This makes it very useful against the last few monsters in a given pack, especially if they are spread out so a single Multishot could not hit them all.
  • Strafe benefits greatly from Increased Attack Speed. See tables and frame breaks for that here.
  • While firing Strafe the Amazon can not move until all the arrows have been fired. This could be quite dangerous in earlier versions of D2, when 20 or more arrows could be fired, but now that the number is capped at 10 it's not such a consideration.
Mana Cost: 11
Damage: 3/4 Weapon Damage

Lore:
Once a warrior has attained this facility, she can fire a volley of arrows with amazing speed and precision, striking one target after another. Veteran mercenaries often tell a tale of a new recruit who was nearly struck down in battle because he was too distracted when first seeing an Amazon use this ability. Do not doubt his word, as he is probably referring to himself. Just smile and buy him another tankard of ale.
