Need help with a faction stealth archer please

    I'm still relatively new to AoS and all of this other stuff and I haven't played an archer in almost half a decade. I want to be a stealth archer dismounter for, hopefully, factions since that's where all the action is at these days.

    I've been told I should pick up Ninjitsu (for forms and smoke bombs) and Bushido (for healing) but how do you heal with Bushido without Parrying?

    Here is what I think I need:
    100 Hiding
    80 (100?) Stealth
    100 (120?) Archery
    90 (120?) Tactics
    100 Meditation
    100 (120?) Ninjitsu
    100 Bushido

    Something else like Tracking for the remaining points? I'm new to templates.

    Anatomy/Healing would seem good for the big heals and big damage increase but can I really rely on Bushido for healing?

    Confidence with Bushido increases your HP Regen dramatically for about 4 seconds. Heals around 1/4 of your heal at GM level and it can be done while moving. HP regen is halted if you take damage during the regen 4 seconds.

    Is this something I can rely on in hairy situations or is it very situational on me not getting ganked/being able to hide or smoke bomb?

    Basically, how does it compare to GM Anatomy/Healing?

    Don't have a lot of experience with it to be honest. I would assume it's 'OK'. You could pop confidence and smoke bomb to get the full affect of the heal. . .

    GM Anat/healing would most likely be more reliable, but then you have to give up a lot for that.

    And I would bump Archery up to 115 minimum, preferred 120.

    You in theory could drop your med for the Anat/Healing and then have to find room for the other. As a factioneer you get access to the MP3 RBC. A couple other MR items and you're prob'ly in business.

    I'm far from the expert though, I'd wait for some more opinions or at least some support for mine before you go making huge changes... :)

    Bushido is unreliable as you would be in animal form at many points.
