7 years agoMon May 19 2014, 07:34pmOk so I've set up an ABC Archer based on a template that I found on the net and I love using it but for some reason I seem to be really lacking compared to what damage the guy said I should be doing (between 200-300 on champs and doom bosses). Can anyone give me some idea as to where I'm going wrong please?
Template: 120 Archery, Tactics, Anatomy, 100 Bushido, Healing, Resisting Spells, 70 Chivalry
Gear: Hunter's Headdress, Jackal's Collar, Rune Beetle Carapace, Stormgrips, Quiver of Infinity Conjurer's Trinket and Leggings of Bane
Jewels: I'm using the CuB jewels atm which I will change soon as I can put more into other skills and stats as I have way too much HCI already.
Also I have been using Vamp Form then stoning Necro for Resist.
7 years agoMon May 19 2014, 08:42pmU need proper slayers and weapon types for that type of damage.
My abc is wraith form and AI from a composite maxes out at about 220 with slayer + honor at a 1.5 second swing. Cant use double shot in wraith form so I havent really messed with Yumis but they probably have the highest dps potential of archer weapons if you could spam double shot every hit and the resists of the monster arent too high.
For a suit i would use the CUB jewerly, Despicable Quiver, Conjurer's Trinket to cap HCI. For Head gear pick up mace and shield glasses. You could get 150 dex with 125 base + 15 from jackals, 5 from despicable, and 5 from mace and shield. Use runic armor with the last 4 pieces, You want to aim for atleast +30 stam and +30lmc and what ever resists you need.
Thanks dude I was looking at getting the Glasses just now actually but can't find anyone with them who is willing to trade s I might put a shout out on the trading post and see if I can get any luck on there. Would the RBC still fit or should I got for runic made?

Ok no problem, I'll see what I can do.
7 years agoMon May 19 2014, 10:49pmAs for weapons, The quickest way to get high end fletching runics is by killing wood treefellows which is a wakened feature.
After the axes have alrdy been gathered I averaged one heartwood or better fletching runic an hour. Just watch out the yew and higher ones hit hard.
7 years agoMon Jul 28 2014, 02:12pmLooking to get some opinions on my suit so far (how it can be better, what can be changed, etc.)
41-63 Base Damage
100 DI (without weapon)
Resists - 70/70/54/70/54 (nothing cast)
Mace and Sheild Glasses, Jackal's Collar, Rune Beetle Carapace, Despicable Quiver, Rogue Jewel Set, Gauntlets of Nobility, Conjurer's Trinket, Reward Sandals.
What are your thoughts? I know I could do with gettin a CC but that will come soon enough =]
7 years agoto reach a 1.5 second swing with a composite bow you need either 55 ssi with 150 stam or 50ssi with 180. So i tend to run Daimyo's Helm to reach 55ssi when Im going purely for dps and not soloing it. I use mace and shield glasses when i solo as the cost of .25 swing rate.
Start working towards higher lmc and luck while still maintaining 150 stam. My suit with the 55ssi is 150stam 45hci 1101 luck 39lmc 46-72 base damage(100di) 20ssi and 60+ in each resist while in wraith form with magic reflect up.
Nice one, Yeah I have been using Daimyo's Helm when I don't really worry about my resists and just want some faster hits.
