I'm about to finish Hell with my age 83 Bowazon on the Ladder and all on my own, with only Baal runs to level up in Normal as well as Nightmare (with the exception of Hell). I'll share my thoughts as well as a breakdown of the equipment. She's now capable of running without the need for expensive equipment on the physical side. Prior to 2.4 the physical Bowa required the upped Buriza or Upped Witchwild in order to make it through Hell on a shoestring but still having decent clearspeed. However, now, an upgraded Lycanders (and likely an upped Goldstrike) can work just fine.
It's not speedy, but it'll take you to the finish line. The game play is quite fluid. Guided/Strafed for Bosses as well as small groups, Multi for massive packs. I played with the Kuko bow up to Act 4 NM, then I went to Lycanders that I increased when I was in Hell in 72. I divided Vit and Dex instead of simply choosing either way. Vit is afflicted by physical immunes and you could use an Harmony to take care of (I did not) or you could utilize the Amp Damage generator (I utilized Atmas). Even then, it's not fast enough to reduce the strength of the physical immune system. I often ran past ghost packs. In terms of Post-Baal farming the majority of her skills are in Pits Shenk/Eldrich, and that's about it. She is able to play Diablo but it's not a fast way to go through Chaos. Cows is also not an option as her multi isn't capable of causing enough damage as I'm not the max dex build and I do not have an inventory of +Max damage (I have about 16 max dmg on charms).
Physical Bowazon isn't the best build for a beginner build for a reset of the ladder. She's good to level up from Normal to be level with MS up to Strafe If you have discovered Vidala Set and Death's Gloves, Belt along with the Manald Heal Ring, however when you consider Insight being a possible bow it is the ability to begin with an elemental building.
I think the tweaking to her skill set that was done by her is in the right place. The main issue is bows have a lower damage threshold, and she's having trouble getting all the required statistics on the budget (or at least the stats that you'd want) as well as the capability to stack resistances as well as magic locate.
