    Although I had a lot of fun sneaking around on this char, I want to make him more of a fighter, a character that can farm gold fast for me and deal optimum damage and efficiently stay alive... Basically wanna get the most I can out of him. It's been a long time since I've returned and I really don't know where to start.

    Any tips on how to change him or make him better would be great! I feel like a newb again. I just want to overhaul him and change him in any way I must to make him an efficient killing/farming machine.

    First of all your comment about optimum, efficient, killing farming machine describes a very specific template like sampire or the like. My comments here are to leave your template mostly intact, but tweak to increase DPS. If you want to soul stone off things that is a completely different template and there are lots of threads about that.

    I don't know what your str is, but my guess is 120. You can increase that with a gtr str potion and get a couple more damage. You can have as low as 60 stamina and still swing at full speed with a spear so I wouldn't worry so much about dex since there is plenty of buffer. You may want to set the str and dex so that you can use greater potions to get 150 str and have enough buffer for stamina loss when you get hit. You may not need a high stamina buffer, but should watch how low your stamina typically goes. Decrease str and dex so that with potions you have 150 str and enough stamina to never go below 60 stamina. Put all the rest of your points into intelligence to increase your mana as high as possible.

    I would consider next dropping the resisting spells and putting the rest in fencing and other things. You will want fencing at 120 because to do damage per second you need to hit the target at the maximum swing speed. That will decrease the misses and increase overall average DPS. Then you will want maximum HCI of 45. To keep your stamina from going low I would get max DCI as well.

    GM anatomy and you get another max damage point. You could take anatomy and tactics to 120 and with max str you would get weapon damage of 51 t0 59. I'm not certain its really worth it, but if the premise is to increase DPS as much as possible you could consider that. You could use jewelry for the 120 skill points like make tactics 105 then +15.

    Consider having HLD and HLA at about 34% and then increasing the hit spell to 50%, because you want to add in the spell damage on almost every hit. Your weapon could be HLD 34, HLA, 34, SSI 25, DI 50, and hit spell 50% and still be below 500 weight. If you want a slayer on your weapon I would drop the SSI from the weapon, have DI around 40 and add the regular slayer, which would be 493 weight. If you have 30 SSI then you will need to keep your stamina above 120 for max swing speed.

    Lots of things do fire damage and I would consider adding 15% fire resist to your ring to keep your stamina up and not take so much damage.

    Your template can still get better, but you would be changing out lots of skills. I don't know that six damage per second really helps that much, but maybe the slayer gets you enough. Have fun. By the way...what is your method of healing?

    If you are going to make a larger change to your skills I would get 100 pts from some other skills and add 40 necro and 60 SS. From this I would add curse weapon, pain spike, and corpse skin and then get poison or fire damage on your weapon. Use wraith form and that gets you mana leech for specials. The curse weapon gets you health and you probably wouldn't need healing or another method. Curse weapon actually does lots of healing and on my archer I really don't need bandages for the most part. The 60 SS will get you about 18 seconds on the curse weapon duration.
