    My wife has a stealth archer that is in need of some serious updating. I can do the suit no problem but what are the better weapon choices for this type of character these days and what mods should those weapons have?



    P.S. I haven't played a PvP archer in a long, long time. So long that my last PvP archer was before fire and forget ;)

    Composite and Heavy X-Bow are the obvious choices, others are used by certain players but those two are the mojority choices.
    Mods:
    SSI (usually maxed and the enhanced with ash 40ssi, or reforged and enhanced for 50 ssi)
    Balanced
    and then it depends on your suit (mace and shield for the HLD or not??)
    Velocity
    Lightning/Fireball/harm

    Yeah she has Mace and Shield.

    You're choices are pretty much exactly what I was thinking, although I didn't know you could reforge 40% SSI. Any idea how to get that?

    Yumi's are totally under-rated. If you have 150 str, 120 tact, and 120 anat you can double shot for 77 against someone with all 70's suit (assuming both hits go off and 4 total hit spells go off). You have to be mounted to use it, but much better than AI imo.

    I like to reforge/imbue/enhance to have 50 SSI, 40 hit lightning, 40 hit velocity, 4 stam, and the rest in DI. If you make an armor suit with all +10 stam pieces you can get to 214 stamina, with a ranger cloak and ssi ring you're at 60 SSI and can shoot the yumi at 1.5. Composite goes at 1.25. I always make it a point to make sure my composite is balanced so if i need to be chugging i switch to that one.

    I agree......
    But as you pointed out yoursef: You have to be mounted. (You do not need 50 ninjitsu or bushido to use special???not sure!) It is a great option and I have two perfectly (for my needs) enhanced/reforged/imbued Yumis. But they fit only if I am on attack mode (On horse or Dread Warhorse and chasing after the bad guys). When I am out to farm, I am rarely on my horse/dread since either a rising colossus is needed (5 slots) or my dread is fighting....and then when the bad guys show and I am using a Yumi, I am in trouble. But I guess that is a "Siege-problem".
