Does an Archer/Mage Template Work? - Returning Player

    This is for PVM only at this point. Ive searched a little and judging by the lack of templates Im guessing it isnt a very good template but figured Id check. I dont have Samuri Empire so bushido isnt a choice. Is it a necessity?

    Currently Im around:

    106 Arch (w/ ring)
    96 magery (going to 100-105)
    94 Anatomy (going to 100?)
    100 Meditation
    97 Eval (going to 100)
    93 Tactics (going to 100)
    72 focus (going to 0?)
    59 resist spells (what should I shoot for?)

    Stats (240 max): I assume i need to add some more dex. What should drop the str and int to?
    Currently:
    98 str
    102 int
    40 dex


    Ok alot of questions here, feel free to answer some, none, or all. I really did try searching on this but its been a few years and alot has changed.

    Right now my suite is only in the 30-50 resist range so beefing that up might help alot. Other than that what types of modifiers and bows should I be looking for on this template?

    Do I need to keep focus? If I dropped it would I be better off adding chivalry or healing knowing I could only get 60 pts or so in. Right now Im mainly having trouble with magic casting monsters as even a couple liches teaming up on me can be trouble. Alot of times Ill summon 2 EEs or EVs and then fire away and cast heals or offensive spells depending on the situation. Is this even a workable template or do I need to retool and go add S Empire for bushido?

    Thanks for any advice.

    For "big game" hunting samurai archers are tough to beat as far as damage output goes.

    I would upgrade to SE if at all possible.

    With out SE I'd try something like this;

    Archery 120
    Chivalry 120
    Resist 120
    Healing 120
    Tactics 120
    Anatomy 120

    My friend runs this exact template and there aren't too many places he can't go.
