    Hey,

    I'm returned after a few years out and want to make an archer.

    The best templates are:

    1. ABC archer
    Archery 120
    Bushido 120
    Chivalry 120
    Tactics 120
    Anatomy 120
    Healing 120
    Ninzja 60 (just for mana cost reduction)

    2. Melee archer
    Archery 120
    Bushido 90
    Swords 120
    Chivalry 120
    Tactics 120
    Anatomy 120
    Healing 120

    Both templates require 780 total skills. If you new player and can't afford such suit then you can drop Tactics/Anatomy/Healing to 110 (750 total skill points).

    Yes.
    Really 5 less for ABC archer if you use Despicable Quiver.
    And 10 less for any template if you use new clean up talisman: 10 tactics or anatomy, 5 HCI, 20 DI.

    You should use DF to get 15 SSI, 15 HCI, 20 DI. You should reinforce your armor for +5 phys/fire/energy caps.
    In this case you have enough room for skills on your jewels.
    I also advice to use one woodland piece with 10 DI in your suit. Although you can do well without it.

    ABC archer just slightly better (120 vs 90 bushido) when you use ranged attack.
    Meleee archer very often can switch to his Double Axe and do the work much faster. (champion spawns, some peerless bosses, and so on)
