    I suspect that the general tone of advice is going to center around dropping healing, and moving to weapons with various Hit Leech properties.

    Can you post your stats and full suit?

    Well, one thing is to figure out a way to get to all 70s on just the armor so you can imbue the rings with other stats.
    I haven't played my archer much in a while - so I haven't put much thought into the weapon itself.

    I suspect you're best off to move away from the headdress and get either some Mace and Shield glasses, or something imbued. That should prevent you from needing to put (so much) resists on your jewelry. Then maybe you can take archery to 105, and put +15 on a new jewel.

    Since you're an archer, you should be able to use Diving Fury to boost HCI from the 15 you lose on hunters, without caring too much about the DCI debuff. Alternately, you can reforge HCI onto some new studded pieces.

    I think chiv is unchanged, as for duration, at least over the last few years. Maybe going way back there's a difference. Is your karma high enough?

    yes im glorious lord.. like i was saying not sure i need to change. just asking. i see a lot of people here doing new things. if i dont gain anything from going from 100 archery and using the hunters headress to 120 then i guess im good for now. i have just started imbueing a dragon slayer yumi that matches my comp bow in stats to try out and see if there is a damage difference in them and the mana use in doing the shot....i have fun using this character but to be honest i have a garg thrower and the fact of not having to hunt for arrows in nice lol. thx for the advice, much appreciated

    Your bows are OK. You needn't HLL on bows.

    Try to get 1.5s swing speed with a composite bow.
    Replace rune beetle carapice and storm grips with crafted pieces.

    Thx for the advice was hoping his skills was still good and did not have to go rerouting them so to speak. i was also looking at changing both those pieces for the studded and adding the DI to jewels, but the lmc mana increase vs imbueing to studded difference is small. ill change em out as i get more resources to be able to do it.Then i can take full advantage of the new refinements and get his suit over 70 caps.Once again thank you for all advice!!! Still a lot of learning to be done but GOD what fun it is to be back!!!
