Can I send you gold cuz this knoledge is priceless!
Glad you like it :D, But there is no need to send me gold. What would I do with it?
(click to show/hide)
That is... Interesting and nice to see. I may just have to try that as a 2h or polearmer for my 21/18 builds from now on. Don't need weapon master anyways if you aren't a hybrid, in my honest opinion.
Also, I have declared myself #1 NA hybrid thrower

As an NA admin, I am the most laid back and concerned with the ~fun of the game~ above all other factors. I've also been super inactive since Summer 2012. University takes most of my time, but I still find some time to play when i can.

I really dislike builds that have agility but don't max the athletics (or riding if cav).
18/18 would do better for you than 18/21 since you are adding throwing. What do you gain for that one WM? Is it necessary? [the answer is no]
Also, a throwing only build like 30/12 is only good for skip the fun, sadly. You need the PS for a melee at the very least. 9 PT is the highest throwing build that can melee. That is 27/12.

Ah, thanks for the advice, 18/21 is my norm so I never considered 18/18.  I went with 30/12 for more power since I'm only doing it for a week but will probably try a melee thrower in the future.  The throwing spear seems really good for close range stabs even without powerstrike.

I actually came up with this build for my polearm guy to replace my 27/12 build. The 4 athletics was really starting to become a liability especially since I use a 91 speed weapon.

I find that it still takes at the most 2 hits to kill the average player with my MW German Poleaxe, so damage isn't really a problem. I haven't leveled him up completely yet, but so far I prefer it to my 27/12.

This deserves to be bumped again. I wish it were stickied, or at least used/linked in Tears' guide.

Why thank you. I really need to polish it and fill it out, though. I think I would be happy with it then.

So, which of the archerbuilds would you recommend for a dedicated longbowman?

Do you have any idea what the accuracy is like for the longbow over medium range (I like to hit what I aim for over short/medium distance)?

The problem is even if you are number 1 in NA you are still only number 467 in EU or the worst in AUS(number 17)

Requesting a cookie cutter archer build for my STF char (lvl 30 apparently), I don't want to use long bow because it feels too slow, I rather shoot more arrows.

Thanks!

18/21. as listed in the thread start.
If you want to just go pew pew pew with a horn bow, 15-24 works pretty well for cookie cutter... but the damage is so low in my opinion.

I wanted to add a great 1h/thrower hybrid that you probably already found out but I'm loving:

Level 30 (4 420 577 xp)

    * Strength: 21
    * Agility: 15
    * Hit points: 56

    * Skills to attributes: 2

    * Ironflesh: 0
    * Power Strike: 7
    * Shield: 5
    * Athletics: 5
    * Riding: 0
    * Horse Archery: 0
    * Power Draw: 0
    * Power Throw: 7
    * Weapon Master: 5

    * One Handed: 104
    * Two Handed: 1
    * Polearm: 1
    * Archery: 1
    * Crossbow: 1
    * Throwing: 120

You can go armoured shielder with a huscarl and 3 jarids. I don't feel to disadvantaged with the low 1h wpf since I use an elite scimitar. Pick is a good alternative too.
If you hit lvl 31, you can contribute an attribute point into 2 skill points and get 3 IF. If you hit level 32, you can add another 3 IF.
