    I'm trying to build an archer in my freetime to play around with and I've decided on this template:
    120 Archer
    120 Tactics
    120 Anatomy
    120 Resist Spells
    100 Healing
    75 Chivalry

    My question is, is that a good template if I put HML on my bows and also what would be a good suit to make for it? Any suggestions as to template change are welcome. Mainly need to know how I should gear it.

    Mana Leech isn't really effective in PvP as you don't do huge amounts of damage anyway.

    There's nothing wrong with the template per se, but I wouldn't say it's exactly built for PvP it looks more like a PvM Archer to me, most current Archers would have either Ninjitsu or a melee skill (or both) for Disarm/Moving Shot or Animal Form/Stars/Images, no Chiv, and no Resist. Not all, just most.

    PvP suits are max everything. SSI, Stam, Mana, LMC, DI, HCI, DCI, HPI, EP, resists, Hit Spell/Velocity/HLD/Balanced, stats, pots, trap box, petals, enchanted apples, talismans for various purposes, enhanced bandages and anything else that give you an advantage.

    On the bow I would drop mana leech and go for damage inc, ssi, hld, hit spell or velocity something like that. If you are going to use a comp bow you need a total of 55 ssi and 210+ stamina for max speed.

    Thanks for the tips. I can soul stone stats for Pvm/pvp. I've gotta build a suit. Thanks for the idea of what to do. Been away too long.

    My template:
    95 Archery (120 with hunters headdress and despicable quiver)
    120 Tactics
    100 Anatomy
    120 Resist Spells
    90 Healing
    100 Poisoning
    95 Ninjitsu (120 with jewels)

    I do just fine with 180 stamina and SSI on my bows. It uses up too much space on the rest of your suit to try to get to 210, but that's just my preference. The rest of suit is highly debatable, depending on what you're specifically looking to do. Even from my template above, I've been considering replacing both ninjitsu and poisoning off for stealth and hiding.

    I suggest having different bows for various situations. Bow so you can hit mortal strike and paralyze. Comp bow so you can use moving shot and hit armor ignore. If you have poisoning, you could use elven comp bow to hit serpent arrow. Heavy crossbow to hit dismount. If you marco them correctly, you can switch with ease.

    Thanks, other Merlin. :) that's my name on Chessy. Great advice. I made a 121stamina suit last night. Cost me more gold than I care to ever do again. But a damn good one
