    I got brand new ABC archer character, and now I am making some bows...

    I wonder if I do bow like this:
    DI 40
    Demon Slayer
    SSI 20 (So I get SSI 55 with my gear)
    HLD 50 (No mace and shield classes.. aiming to Stamina 210)

    But last Mod...
    Should it be like HML (Or is this total waste on archer weps?)
    Velocity 50 better?
    Something else?

    You always want HML.

    Thanks for reply.
    Next I just consider should I take Yumi or Composite Bow as superslayers.

    I am running with Stamina 211 and MR 18 and SSI 10 on jewerly (+15 SSI on spell)

    How are those mana costs nowdays? (AI versus DShot)

    Almost all my bows are Composite. I have a couple of X-bows and one Yumi.

    AI is better (PvM, I believe Yumi is still better in PvP) than DShot unless the target has really low resist.

    I use Yumi in PvM. Usually I do 300 damage per a double short. Well, my archer as well have Disco/Music.
    But vs serious bosses I use Composite Bow. AI is a universal move. If you don't have both Yumi and Composite then go with Composite.

    May I as your template?

    Skills bonuses on jewerly / travesty mask?...
    Or how you get skill cap 720 be enough.

    I have 40 HLL on my bows and I usually don't need to heal. When I need I use Confidence/Close Wounds/Gif of Renewal.
    For example, for Greater Dragons Confidence is usually enough.


    p.s. I haven't played much with this char.

    No SSI? I would not use that without a hefty amount of SSI to overcome the base speed.

    You can hit max weapon speed (With yumis:s new [publis 81] speed 3.25) even on stamina 150 if you got SSI 35 on suit / spells (Example: Tinkerlegs + ranger cloak + 5 ssi on other jewerly + Chivary 120 Divine fury = SSI 35)

    Ok, I missed that. I guess UOGuide needs to update their Yumi base speed.

    When I want to know a weapon damage/speed I go to Stratics. When I want to know a weapon damage/speed before the last weapon patch I go to Stratics.:)

    P.S. Sometimes I enter UOGuide just to have a look at leafblade or soul glave prepatched damage and drop few tears :D.
