    Question - starting to add archery to a template and wanted to know best way to train it up, is melee skills difficult based or just hours and hours of use to gm them? Also can i set up to train archery by using a dagger with use best weapon skill to save on arrows? I greatly appreciate any input.

    UBW doesn't work for archery or it didn't long time ago. I always just bought a bunch of arrows from the Ish gypsy camps and then accepted the New Haven quest to get to 50 real quick, then either to one of the graveyards such as Moonglow's or the first set of slimes at the fire island entrance to the Abyss. Those will get you to mid-60's pretty easy and then if your in the Abyss entrance, you can move over to the acid slimes which will get into the mid 90's. After that, then you can either continue with the slime (the tactic gains stop around 96) or you can move to bashing golem, or killing things such as the trogs. I usually use a fast magical shortbow.

    acid slugs should get you all the way to 120, at least with throwing it works that way....since it's just another melee skill i am pretty sure it works with archery as well....but i suggest you use a golem after you hit 80 or so (can use ring and brac. to get there as well) and a repeating 100 poison x-bow...this should get you to 120 in 5-6 hours

    Use best weapon does not work for archery or throwing. Slugs and golems are your best bet. Although after GM you should be good to go for actually fighting for gains. Of course you missed the best system for gains which are the giant turkeys.

    I can confirm using Acid Slugs up to 120.0 Archery. I just did it from 115.0 - 120.0. Used 3 Repeating X-Bows, about 10k bolts, and 4 hours.
