    i made a new armor for my PVM (at least mostly) Archer with 211 stam. also i use a mace and shield for HLD
    and i got 20 ssi on suit +15 of full Divine Fury.

    i need an advise for my bows.

    i will imbue the following stuff on them

    SSI 20
    HML 40
    HSL 50
    super slayer/slayer
    48 Velocity or Hit Lightning

    then enhance with Yew for 10DI to fill up to 100 DI (the 5 hci is unfortunately wasted as i got 45 on jewles and conjurers trinket)

    DI is whetstoned from the bow at the beginning.

    my question is: what is better to use for PVM Velocity or Hit Lighting in my case.

    template is 6*120 (Archery Anatomy Tactics Healing Chiv and Resist)

    For PVM i dont find hit velocity that usefull. I usually go for hit fireball or lightning, depending on what i fight. (hint monsters lowest resist)
    In most cases you can get away with not having HSL on your bow. Unless ofcause you get hit alot.
    I would take DI to reach the 100 cap, any day over hit lightning or another hit spell.
