I never claimed to be the best but I can assure you that every single archer that has posted ITT is better than you will ever be.
honestly if u wanna start i am offended in my eyes you were never good, u played in a time when u were lv 80 and most people were not and there was no cool-down so archer class was OP u had everything in your favor to be good and when people started lving up and they took cool down away it got to hard for you and you quit..... so in my eyes, no you were not a good archer and you will never be a good archer until you prove it, anyone could of been good at that time. it honestly bothers me when people say you were the best when i can name 5-8 archers who played after they took combo out and still were good. my rant is over now.
I've tested many builds, full tank archer builds (just enough dex for bow rest hp, various armor pieces like hp armors and krowas, iron set, rols, weapon def armors), various semi tank combinations, and of course full AP build. I've also been playing since the Dies server went online, but im sure you have much more to say, so please, you may start.
The golden age of the archer was when the game was capped at 70: Styx was deadly, there was no such thing as an archer combo, and "buy +3s and +10s" wasn't listed as a strategy/skill. Though I am not forgetting things like NYchris's +9/19dex iron bow and Greyhawk's +10 iron bow existed back then.
ok well im stated 255 dex 177 hp im lv 83 i have 80 in archery 36 in explorer and 23 in master. my gear is krowaz set +7( no chest piece) shell chest piece +11rev/ wf +11rev / dual lego +3/ bdn +3/ elf belt +3/ dual hr +1s/ scrolled i have 9.3khp 1140 ac and around 3600ap/ but in anatolia the gear now this is considered average or slightly above average there are archers running around with shell +10 and mythril +10 sets with full +3 ap unique like elf rings/ silver earrings/ amulet of dex/ elf belt all +3 with +10 windoforces. that being said i almost never die unless im duffed and cant cure my self fast enough and i hit people for 1000-1500 a shot depending on the target
