I'm having a little trouble I thought you could help me with. My latest favorite character is an archer, and I find him brilliant in a field fight or when I'm fighting against mages. The trouble I have in when I'm in a one on one fight against a samurai dexxer. I can never seem to get a killing blow against a well played samurai. Contrarywise, they can't seem to kill me either without a stroke of luck or the proper terrain (I hate dueling pits!) Mages usually drop against me with little trouble (balanced shortbow with hit fireball makes short work of them). So my question is, what weapons or tactics should I be thinking about in a duel? Added information: My template: 115 archery 115 bushido 115 tactics 100 meditation 100 anatomy 100 healing 75 chivalry My suit: high resists, high MR, max HCI, 25 DCI, 60 DI without weapon, 45% EP, some LMC I can pretty much do weapons specials and cast spells all day long, only limited by my relatively low int. My stats: Pre potion: 100 str, 125 dex, 35 int (item enhanced dex) An agility potion puts me at 150 dex My weapons: I have a collection of 75 relatively decent bows, but nothing which would be in the million gold range if I should sell them. All of my bows have swing speed increase, and most either have spell effects or balanced properties, but few have both (I'd love a balanced bow with spell effects, but won't pay the price).
