    Coming back after a while out and making an archer. You think the following would work? I have 190 stamina and 35ssi on suit. Thinking of trying this. Most skills trained or near enough.

    120 in all.

    archery
    tactics
    an at
    healing
    bus hi do
    spell weaving.

    my gear is pretty top spec. So stats are nice. Thought this be pretty cool template. Anyone play similar??

    I'll post result if not lol.

    Nothing wrong with it as such, what are you using it for PvP or PvM.

    Using for pvm. Ran rats spawn last night and kicked serious butt. Really handy. Comfort of knowing if i die i insta re, attune to soak up a ton of damage if I get surrounded. Thunderstorm and wildfire forcrowd control and death pixies and fury to.eat low lvl stuff. Still used other skills too and mana leech on bow kept my mana up also. When it came to champ I used AI to keep my mana full and dmg flowing then kicked.out a few word of.death as finisher. Really impressed with first try out. Will try something tougher tonight.

    What about casting time? Does it look too long?

    It's not all that bad. If I pit my mind to it I could work in faster casting ( have fcr 3) but for how I using it I finding it ok tbh. true support skill but even surrounded I can get off 3 thunderstorms in quick succession which clears room and gives me space to kite again.

    Don't forget you can get another 1 FC from town loyalty.

    Take note of damage types as well, Thunderstorm, Essence Of Wind, Wild Fire... and you could just play in Protection.

    Only downside to Spellweaving on a dexxer is you can't take Arctic Ogre Lords to other places as auto stable will just kill them.

    I'm thinking about trying something like this:
    arch 120
    bush 80
    chiv 120
    tact 120
    anat 120
    sw 120
    healing/res 100

    Probably I am able to use sw/chiv for healing... but in this case I need res spells against Mana Drain and low level poison (so I am always able to cast).
    I am not sure if I need FC and/or FCR on my suit.
    120 chiv is for SSI bonus but probably I could do well without it.
    I am not sure if I need 210+ stamina.
    I don't know if 120 sw has great advantage over 100 sw. I believe it more relays on arcane level than on skill level.


    p.s. Since I haven't free slots at the moment I don't think I will try this in the nearest future.

    I think Spellweaving level just affects success chance, 117.5 gives you 100% at every spell.
    I've had a 4/6 Chiv Archery Tamer (for PvP) before but it's tough to fit in casting, especially when you want SSI and high Stam and other properties on the weapons.

    I am working towards
    120
    Arch
    tact
    anat
    heal
    chiv
    SW

    all but chiv, healing and anat are at 120 anat is 113 and healing and chiv are in 80
    with town bonus, suit and chiv I got like 50 ssi already and will increase as chiv gets to 120. I was trying with bush at first but dropped it and got to say I not missing it. With attunement when needed, gift of renewal close wounds and bandages healing is NOT an issue. Low lvl poison is healed between ticks for healing and GoR heals through it and if it comes to it I can cleanse by fire. I have found some lovely jewels bin tmaps now so now have 4/2 as well which has made a big difference. Did ratsspawn solo last night. Used magic short bow with hit area, Hml hsl di and hld. Went into dungeon and charmed an O2 to bring in with me who got killed by champ in end but when champ pops I switch to comp bow with same but has ssi rather than hit area. When he pops rats I switch back and lightning arrow fries them then just chain AI. I have found having damage eater on suit really helps as taking lots of little spell hits provides me with lots of mini heals which augments GoR and bandage healing really well and having attunement soak up like 90+ damageIis immense. Now chiv is rising this guy is really coming into his own. I am still working on getting a full set of bows but having the right wep for.the job makes life easier. Damage output is nice and the SW really aids ya as can use it in all situations really well. Even nature's fury can keep stuff off your back or mop up low lvl stuff. And pixies are the bomb. Weak bit cheap and fast to cast. Wildfire doesn't bo amazing damage but when there lots of targets it means I don'thave tto use my target next macro as one shot kids most stuff and WF auto targets for me hehe. If I had patience to work in bushido and get the perfect loot jewels I would but as is this template is super versatile. Really liking it. Mana drain can be an issue but i findi am leeching well eenough to counter it anyhow and getting paralysed isn't a biggie as long as i got attunement up. And if everything goes to heck i can insta rez lol.
