    Would this be a (useable in peerless 2 or 3 in group and other higher end monsters?) good archer temp? Never had an archer before so i am kind of clueless. :lick:

    Archery-100 (120 with hunters)
    Necro 0 (40 with book and +15's, plenty to use wraith)
    Weaving- 105

    * May drop to 65 to allow
    120 bushido and
    120 weaving (WoD obviously)

    This Temp would run in Wraith form for the mana leech, while using a bow with
    40 Stam Leech
    30 Life Leech
    35 SSI
    39 DI

    and of course mischief maker and Night reaper for doom.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    For wraith form to truly be effective, you need spirit speak on your template. The amount of mana leeched is based on SS, unlike vamp form which is equally good at all skill levels.

    I don't know what you could drop to get SS on the template.

    so maybe i should drop weaving for enough necro to get to vamp form? then use those skill points left over to put in other skills?

    In my opinion vamp form would just not be worth the point investment and loss of fire resist for an archer. They just don't swing fast enough or take enough damage. At least they shouldn't be. If you're getting hit by monsters other than spells you aren't playing an archer right.
    I shoved 120 Music and 120 disco on my archer and never looked back.
    120 music
    98 disco 120 with items
    86 archery 120 with items
    105 tactics 115 with items
    115 anat
    100 healing
    96 chiv....I think. Or close to that.

    so then, would this work better?

    120 Bushido
    100 Archery (120 W/Hunters although id prefer Mace and Shield)
    100 Tact
    100 Chiv
    90 Anatomy*
    90 Heal*
    100 resist

    Suit right now is using
    Rune Beetle Cara
    and Gypsies headress
    Totem of the Void
    Ring of the Vile

    Total Resists
    75 (elf)

    With 32 Lmc

    80 Strength - 90 Hits
    150 Dex - 150 Stam
    36 Int - 66 Mana

    Reg Xbow has (should i look for one with a hit spell and HML?)
    28 HLD
    27 HLL
    30 SSI
    55 DI

    *Can Drop chiv to 80 for gm heal and anatomy

    My ABC archer is similar and I luv the template. I pushed resist to 120 however because I pvp with my archer as well as pvm.

    You may want mana leech on your bow but try the one you have and see how it works. If you don't have mana problems great but you may have with paragons or peerless.

    If you can go with mace and shield I'd highly recomend it. The HLD on your glasses will make all targets easier to kill. (PVP or PVM)

    Lastly don't forget all youyr buffs for max damage output. (Enemy of one, honor opponent, consacrate weapon, and devine fury if you need a stamina boost)
