    Hi there, been playing on and off for many years and started an archer a while ago. Currently working towards the following.

    120
    Archery
    Tactics
    Anat
    Healing
    Chiv
    Spellweave

    Itseems like a fairly solid template and I am enjoying it but don't know what to do with regards to what bows to use as my damage output seems a bit low. I been using magic short bow as I got SSI and Stam enough to not need ssi on now but I am finding for levels 1/2 of spawn I kicking azz then much higher it gets a bit hairy. Thinking that a company bow may be better but not sure what mods to go for. What do you guys have on your bows???

    Composite bow and 211 stamina is like a machine gun.

    Damage increase
    Mana leech
    SSI
    Balanced
    Hit spell, HLD or HLA or slayer

    That's how I roll.

    Excellent, so with 190.Stan and 30on my suit 30 on bow will max me out. Slayer, hit area and ml ssi and di just what I looking for on spawn ( except rats) will run hit spell and use vermin slayer. Is the slayer on your list a super? Also for such as anvasion baddies would you drop slayer and add on HLA or something??

    Is it worth making a bunch with all the hearteood kitsI got? Lol.

    I dont see much other use for the Heartwood kits, so why not? Just reforge for the max 6 charges, pick a name or two if ya want and hope for the best :)
    May get a nice 7 property bow outta the deal..

    I would not use a template like that at all for spawns.
    You have 0 survivability(pvp wise), and mana will be a problem(only 120 combat points, so no mana reduction).
    Spellweaving really issent a great skill on a archery, because you most likely will have 0 fc, 0 fcr. and the spellweaver spells cost alot of mana.
    On my archer i use magical shortbows with great success. Slayer + Hit area effect is the key here.

    I roll with something like
    120 archery
    120 resist
    100 tact
    100 ana
    100 heal
    100 ninjitsu
    080 chiv.

    The template offers decent damage output, and great survivability.

    PvP wise I not done overly bad, and I got 4/2 fcr fc. Only did I can see on yours is swapping out ninjitsu and adding resist at the expense of losing 120 on other skills. I though tactics / Anat / Chiv / archery counted towards mana reduction. I never have mana issues really and with regards to PvP I have a 90+damage absorb plus gift of Renew which I back up with bandied and pots. Works well for me. Was more about bows really but I'll consider what you mentioned.

    Thanks for the feedback

    I think the most I have seen was around 125 skill points.

    45 skills points per jewels, 20 from mark of travesty, 10 from talisman, and 5 from a quiver.

    my first tamer years ago had a build that utilized most of these things :)
