    Ya its not low but u can got better with Helenid(Ap scrl) Wf (-armor, 127 AP ap, +15 dex, 10 str), EE +8 (121 ap, 150 hp 150 mp 11 str). But -70 armor will hurt me so much?
    Also why u saying 3 parts krowaz (helmet, gauntlets others?). I will lose some bonuses cause of 3/5.

    EE has sword defence and im one of those tank-archers, in my eyes EE will always be best

    Well with Pauldron,pad,boot+7/+8 you'll get ur full bonus (15 dex) means u can grab the ap out of gaunt,helmet by buying +9s

    The reason that is usually stated for the unpopularity of Helenid bows is that its damage is too inconsistent, even though the damage roof (total AP) is raised.

    The "best" or most viable build is as stated the tank archer: EE + krowas = gg hp ac and resist. However playing this way for a bit of time, you will encounter the performance issues that all tank archers realize at one point or another, like party-dependence, low total damages, figuring out just how effective your support skills are (the ones you're supposed to pick up after de-prioritizing damage), so on so forth.

    You didnt mention server, but there's one last thing I have to say: As archers who cant minor heal like assasins, I realized there was nothing I could do to tank those +10 baals and +10 raums so I would rather have a chance to kill some targets and die to everything, than to not kill everything and still just die to everything.

    Check KoK exclusive is right. for max ap pauldpadsboots is best. If u want a little extra hp you can go full set, but 3x+7krowaz and 2x+8 chitin will obviously get u 6 more dex then full krowaz build. Not to mention the price is alot lower.

    Hmm i think :

    Krowaz pauldron +7
    Krowaz pad +7
    Helmet/ boot/ gloves = chit +9

    that would be +93 dex
    12+12+12(bonus krowaz) +19+19+19

    For the Bow i like Windforce +8, i like sd but has its negative ie only works on non prem/ dc pots
    but 137 ap + 16 dex, if you can offset the -70 def ie buy def valks/ wings etc

    for accessories

    I would go :
    Howling +0 -+3 ofc highest best
    eme +1 - +3 - highest best - i chose this to offset more def from bow - if not a issue you can go for another howling

    pp+1 - 3 ofc highest is best
    IN - swap out in need of close combat with big babas :P

    Elf belt +2 -3 - no wep def but 20 dex and def, needed when swaping with IN - leaves def low otherwise

    old rols - rols +3 - highest best
    you could use 1x rol 1x leg band if like +2

    All these builds are dependant on the server, this build is very poor on ele defence, so on a mage server it would need revising, also all builds depend on how you play, solo, 2 man, full party, close showers, or far and more support etc etc

    I guess you need to find how you want to play then build around that

    Helenid +9 is the way to go, nice minor combo with it as archer aswell also the wep enchant works. As for armors depends if you play on EUKO or USKO, it's a tricky one here either way but go for krowaz set+8 if you have budget get iron set for switching and best dex pendant and belt possible.
