    I have never played a dexer of any type in pvp and I am just coming back to the game after a 2 year absence and am lost on the direction to go in building this suit. I have the funds to make a good one its just putting it together that's confusing to me.

    1. Should I go non-medable or medable?

    2. What should the end result stat-wise look like (damage inc /stam inc /mana regen / lmc / enhance pots / swing speed inc / hci / dci and any other mod I might have overlooked) mainly need each in recommended minimums as if I can go higher I will but I want to lay out my foundation and build from there.

    I'd go for studded as you can hit 55lmc.

    To fire a comp bow at Max speed u want to try and hit 211 stamina.

    45 HCI and ideally 45 DCI

    50 enhance potions and then try to hit +25 hit points.

    Highest damage output is a 211 stam suit. you can build a simple one for under 50mil (for just the armor) or can go all out and spend ALOT

    Another option is a "low stam" suit. you can swing at 1.5 speed with a comp bow with only 180stam, 45ssi OR 151 stam with 60ssi
    with this option its Much easier to fit in damage eaters and max regens into a suit. a little more surviveability, a little less damage.

    Damage increase mod is a preference. If you rely on moving shot, or arent Armor ignoring every shot you should have some.
    If your mana pool is high enough and are Armor ignoring every shot you need 0 damage increase.

    How much your putting into a suit / how serious you are at pvp will determine alot of your stats.

    Personally i wouldnt make an archer with less than 100 mana.

    Another thing to consider is if you plan to go red or not. If not a town bonus can be used for 5ssi (have to refresh every 24 hours) If your red tho youll need to have all your ssi on your actual items.

    For a tallysame, slither is the best option for an archer. it can even be easilly swapped out for an orc brute tally.
    I wouldnt recommend conjurers trinkets for pvp unless you dont mid avoiding reponds / orc brutes (take double damage because of the undead slayer)
