    Ok so I have been making an Archer for the last 6 weeks and added Stealth/ Hide/ Ninjitsu to it over the last week. I will probabally use stones to switch this char between PvM and PvP depending on my mood that day [​IMG] However I have never played an archer before now and have no Idea really what the best bows/mods are for both PvM and PvP and what types of tactics to use for Ninja archer in pvp.

    Any help on temps would be nice as well. I am currently at 710 skills on this accnt.
  2. Hi Hooder you might want to talk to Vortex and Verum about that. I don't know much about bows. Goodluck bro.

    SSI/DI/HLD/Hit Fireball, anything else is a bonus
    composite for moving shot
    reg. bow for mortal/para
    heavy cross for dismount
    crossbow for mortal heavy damage

    Slayers for what you are hunting/hit spell cancels slayer when it hits
    for PVM chiv is a must
    magical short bows for speed(low lvl spawns)
    crossbows for mortal on things that can heal(champs/dragons/miasma)
    slayer talasmen are very nice to have as well

    so you are very similar to me although i have tactics instead of ninja skill. you will be very vulnerable so never start an open fight. sneak behind them until they get hurt. usually a stun shot at first does confuse them a lot. if you got enough mana do 2 stuns. they almost dead by then if they dont know how to defend. always stay away so you can hide again if it turns out they are strong. check the places where they farm. sometimes they get hurt and thats your chance

    i thought parablow from a bow or someone with wrestle didn't break from damage like the mage spell para..maybe mistaken tho [​IMG]

    They changed it a while back. Same with nerve-strike, I think. Even if Verum still gets me with that one regularly.

    It'd probably help if I would truly equip for PvP, like wearing armor and stuff.
