    This was pre-AOS and pre-powerscrolls so I am not sure the best way to alter this template. I am looking at this more for PvP than anything else. I am leaning towards a stealth archer but was intrigued by another post on necro/archer. I can stone more than one skill and am open to suggestions on any solid template. Here is what I have and maybe can get some suggestions on changes.

    Archery 87
    Fencing 100
    Anatomy 100
    Tactics 100
    Hiding 61.3
    Resist 69.4
    Healing 87.2
    Poisoning 50
    Magery 27.6

    Okay since no suggestions then let me ask some questions.

    1. Before I dump the 50 poisoning, is it viable and worth the points and cost to work up? If not, is there any reason to keep fencing?

    2. What is a decent necro archer template?

    3. What is a decent stealth archer template?

    4. What is a decent sampire archer template?

    5. Which is the best of those 3?

    On the off chance that anyone wants to discuss archer templates, I am still looking for different templates.

    Would just suggest you use the search function. Plenty of example templates in the threads and discussions on them.

    Having someone tell you which template is right or wrong doesn't make it so.
    Find out which have been used, then research the pertinent skill information and find out why a given template is correct or wrong.

    Don't want to hijack his thread, but I would be curious to hear opinions on his poisoning question...I currently have 50 poisoning on a soulstone frag, and I can't really come up with a conclusive answer as to whether or not I should save it, or use it, or just chunk it.

    I have been searching but since all warrior type skills are in one forum and posts mention all kinds of skills regardless of what the main temp is going to be, this has been a very disappointing search. I am not looking for a "play this template" but suggestions to try. If you want to play a treasure hunter or tamer, then I can give you a ton of different template ideas and why they are set up like that but I have never really played an archer other than an archer bard and never in PvP so I am looking for advice. There is no FAQ's up at the moment and understand that they are being worked on. Just about everything that I have found is some sort of sampire varient which kind of helps with one template idea but not the others.

    Should I be asking in another forum maybe? There is a Felucca forum but it is rarely used and people don't seem to ask about template help there. I guess I can try Siege and see what they can help with.

    Common opinion tends to be toss it for PvM, but has some application for PvP. Personally I would use it for yourself and see if you can mesh it with other skills effectively.

    Didn't mean to come across as rude, just honest.

    For PvP... Stealth is a defensive skill. It's good for running away, but not so great for offense unless you plan on ambushing.
    Necromancy... partly based on gambling that your opponent wont corpse-skin-proof his suit. Bloodoath is good both offensively and defensively. With high archery damage output you can get some effect out of curse weapon.
    Oh, and just for fun, i'd put spellweaving on too, Attunement, gift of renewal, and dismounting your enemy and summoning a swarm of pixies on them is just pure fun :D
    ... following along shooting him in the back with moving shot as he's fleeing, of course.

    Well, it appears that common opinion is it's a real pain to train, so I think I'll probably just ditch it...if you won't recommend it, then I think it's probably safe to say it's a wash.

    *shrugs* haven't used it really. Doesn't say anything about it.
