    hi folks,

    i am now experimenting for around 3 months with an archer/tamer, but im still not satisfied.

    I got
    120 Archery
    100 Tactics
    100 Vet
    115 Lore
    100 Taming
    100 Medi
    80 Chival

    So, i used to have 100 Magery, still got it soulstoned. But i thought my dmg was too low without Chivalry.
    The problem with chival is: No Invis BIG manko, If i vet my pet and shoot the target, often it attacks me and i go down, because no invis.

    Im Running chival with a perfect suit. 70% Di, 45Hci, Crimson etc.

    but i got no luck then.

    So i thought switching back to magery and get a luck suit.

    I really dont know what to do.

    What do the other Archer Tamer do.

    Which Suits, which skill combination etc.

    I would be very glad for constructive posts.

    Best Regards!

    I'm thinking about making my peace tamer into an archer tamer and I figure that the way to get around having magery is to use a balanced bow and carry invis pots. If you're going to be using this archer/tamer at doom and peerless, luck isn't really that big of a deal. I would stick with the suit you have.

    Is my goal, i have now a nice suit, with very much +Skills, i have 98 points left to spend. And i cant decide what to do.

    Meditation due lack of mana?
    Magery?
    Anatomy?
    or even something else?

    Anyone have suggestions?

    Enolugh to get into wraith form for creaturs you can leech off of.

    Or possibly get some Spell Weaving, not much use unitl WOD but thats a nice finisher and the abiity for pets and self to insta res is also nice in a crunch

    To the OP

    Depends on what you wanna do I guess.

    Me? I like it all. I wanna be able to go everywhere and be effective.

    I'm not in game now so I don't remember all my skill levels, but for me magery is a must. Eval isn't...let your pets throw the offensive spells. Med is good to have if you are chaining heals.

    Most monsters worth fighting with your eyes open can damage close range. So in order to keep your pets and friends alive you must be able to heal and cure at a distance.

    For me archery is really only useful in pvp. Even before the requirement to have tactics in order to do special moves, I had chiv, but even then using a bow was just something I did when I was bored and my pets and everyone else was in good health.

    When doing peerless, champ bosses or any other high end stuff I usually equip Tomb of Lost Knowledge for the magery other bonuses.

    For pvm stuff, special moves like paralize, mortal, and whatever it's called from the elven magic short bow, can be very helpful at times.

    But it does all come down to play style and personal preferance. I can't stand not having magery, no matter what type of character.
