    Absolutely not useless in PVP. I am not sure on a template, but several people have been very successful archers. I believe usually stealth/hiding and chivalry. Don't quote me on that though.

    Archery wtfpwns in PvP. There is no easier PvP template. Magery requires precise timing and at least a dozen macros; melee requires quick reflexes and expensive suits. Archery requires double-clicking a target and occasionally executing one of two special attacks.

    Get a heavy xbow with lots of SSI and people will beg you not to use it when you fight.

    Its more effective on prodo, just cause you can carry a few different bows, and have a decked out suit. But still viable here.

    120 Archery
    120 Bushido
    _70 Chivalry
    120 Resist Spells ( 100 Resist if at 700 cap )
    _90 Tactics
    100 Anatomy
    100 Healing
    -------------
    720 Skill Points

    or

    120 Archery
    120 Bushido
    _70 Chivalry
    120 Resist Spells ( 100 Resist if at 700 cap )
    _90 Tactics
    120 Magery
    _80 Ninjitsu
    -------------
    720 Skill Points

    or

    120 Archery
    120 Bushido
    120 Resist Spells
    100 Tactics
    120 Necromancy
    120 Spirit Speak
    -------------
    690 Skill Points

    or

    120 Archery
    120 Bushido
    120 Mysticism
    120 Focus
    120 Magery
    120 Tactics ( 100 Tactics if capped at 700 )
    -------------
    720 Skill Points

    Main things to remember:

    Special Moves require 70 and 90 points in both weapon skill and tactics. 70 points in each for Primary special, 90 for Secondary. Anything over 90 points is just for added damage.

    Magery is required to get around by magical means ( Gate Travel spell only ), as Sacred Journey doesn't work on Siege.

    Don't put Necromancy and Chivalry on templates together, as their potentcy is directly affected by your karma, one would always be hindered by the other.

    Ninjitsu is nice for animal forms and the ability to throw ninja stars, but other than that, you're losing alot of ability without stealth or melee weapon skill.

    Not true, Night. Necromancy is affected by fame. Also, on the necro archer, assuming he has a 720 skill cap, drop 10 from necromancy and tactics and get 40 meditation.

    Good template advice, Night.


    I'd add, though, that the sampire and wammy templates have both chivalry and necromancy. :p

    Yes, but those are melee templates, and the necromancy isn't being used for direct damage spells, so the potentcy of Vampire form is irrelevant. :)

    The small amount of karma lost for changing vampire or casting curse weapon is easily gained back with a few monster kills.

    I suppose you are correct.

    Reputation FAQ: Practical Application of Karma

    I always thought it made sense that you had to choose to role play a good or evil charatcer, but negative karma only affects one necro spell, apparently.

    Yeah, 40 med is nice, but that is only an option for 720 cap, otherwise the points are wasted just to equal JoaT ( assuming Human ).

    pvp archery - 120 archery , 120 tactics, 120 nat , 120 healing, 120 resist, 60 weaving, 65 chiv

    From what I can tell of siege the pvpers all suck and like to pick on complete nubs to the shard. Dismount all kill pixie AI mortal beats anyone on the entire shard I bet ;)

    I'd say you may get several, but not all pvpers here are as ****ty as you claim.

    I havent been playing as much here of late so i would more than likly get curb stomped if you use the nb/es lammer spam, but if you want id gladly toss you a 1vs1 on siege, Great Lakes or Atl. Preferably the second as i ping best there...

    god i get sick of this damn comment its dead because all the so called siege players play everywhere else ITS ****ING DEAD BECAUSE YOU NEVER LOG IN log in stay logged in and you would relize its not that dead get your head outtta your asses and play

    go do a peerless go get real arties not the faction arties

    go do a spawn get scrolls

    stay outta luna and play the game theres a whole game to play and all you do is log in run luna and say nobody on and log



    p.s. i dont mean this comment directly at you i mean it for everyone that cmplains about siege not having people as they log into another shard

    I understand your frustration...


    The one thing you seem to forget...everytime you blast me...is I PLAYED ON A DEAD SHARD FOR OVER 16 MONTHS!!!!!

    THAT GIVES ME THE RIGHT TO SAY WHAT EVER THE FRICK I WANT!

    Ok, no wthat we have that settled...I enjoy pvp and farming..sorry I farmed up all the things I need so that leaves pvp

    And Siege has no pvp...maybe if you actually tried a different shard you would see what pvp is, you might like it.

    Last thing Sprago, you had a post about a new guild and I repled that when you have 4 or 5 people on jump in vent and we will come fight...over 3 weeks and nada, that tells me you never even had 4 people on ready to fight, that my friend is a dead shard...period!

    4 of TNT logged last night...quick recap

    diablo...dam...super...diablo's dm

    me ...mono...tairon...davy, with gm **** and a GD

    they ran and tele on the wall

    we all unflagged and logged.

    i dont care dude i wasnt looking for a debate
    you only play siege when you got numbers on or you dont play
    i play every night i play siege becasue i love the shard i love the ruleset
    I PLAY SIEGE

    and your little recap big deal you logged without killing them that doesnt prove anything

    and touch bases on your last comment, that was ment to get under my skin i know what pvp is but i would rather play here with the low body count then i would to play in a free shard(waste of time) or to play a prodo shard(with carebear style of playing*insurance) i play in a real shard reguardless of the population its still hands down the best shard there is

    one last thing i wasnt blasting you (your words) im just mentioned your quote becasue you were the most recent person to make that statement next time i can use someone that wont take it personal because it wasnt an attack or at least wasnt ment that way

    i do have and have had 4-5 poeple on but im not only into pvp i enjoy playing the rest of the game too sorry that meet your criteria
