    Ok well I am finally getting to the point that my char is GM in a few skills or very close. I figure I can at least put up a decent fight now, but I have no real idea how to defend myself from a certain 2 hit OoOoOOOOOooOo cross bow (the owner of which will remain nameless). I have a necro fencer with healing in the 80s. Can a brother get a little help here. I dont need the perfect strategy just some helpfull opens.

    BTW Thanks for not dry looting me those who shall remain nameless !!! [​IMG]

    Parry and High DCI i would suggest. Just to make sure that the nameless person doesn't hit every time.

    heh, if that's the archer I think it is I only got away once, by being in the right place.

    Bloodwood armour and run like the wind to Oaks altar among the lovely pixies. [​IMG]

    But then I'm allowed to run away, I'm a crafter [​IMG]

    Most archers dont run resist, so just go for blood oath.

    don't know who got Hooder, but it was you chased me among the pixies. Only time I ever got away from you. [​IMG]

    I'd been gathering bones or feathers (can't remember which now) and was approaching Spirituality gate just as you came out of it.

    fighting an archer is one of the more interesting dexers to fight, personally i think keeping an archer poisoned is the trick and always run high dci. Soon as the archer misses you , they are in trouble and u can plant a combo of some sorts on them. Practice on your timing and you should be ok. Also , if you have wrestling disarm is a nice move to keep in mind. Experiment a bit and see what works for you.

    thanks Haha, I have 80 poisoning and 90ish parry stoned so i guess ill have to dust those off and wait for a certain sneaky archer and her buddy that "has left the building" do a leathal poison strike from hiding and hit the blood oath while they are curing. trouble is she is never alone. alway has a blue from MYTH scouting and usually has Elvis along in tow when she whacks me. Elvis I got away from but that bow of hers is devastating. thomp thomp OoOOoOOo

    Parry and/or DCI essentially negates archery. An Archer will hit one time in 5 against a parrier with max DCI. Nobody will die like that, unless they are afk.

    Speaking of afk, I had a wonderful time killing the afk at luna bank yesterday with shurikens. It was hilarious, even if I only got 2 counts for the ~20 people I killed.
