PvP Shock Ranger Viable ? After taking a quick look at the sticky guides I can't see any ranger articles so i'm assuming it's safe to ask without getting my head bitten off, anyway ... Before anything else this idea is based around the Uniq Spider Bow: Widow Maker that grants the user Guided Arrow. I know people are going to say that it's bm but this pal is strictly for East Ladder where ever room is full of amp smiters, hf zealots, Tele casters with op syns etc After seeing a medicore Tesladin on ladder run to the stash and put on a widow maker and proceed to run out spewing arrows I was suprised to see him inflicting crazy damage upon the members of the room.It turned out that he did better with the bow then his melee weapon. So thus the seed was planted and so far i've been thinking: Templar / Ranger (Yes its far from my own idea but this is my take) Skills Max Holy Shock Max Resist Light Max Salvation Seeming bow is main weapon and theres nothing to spend skill points on maxing salvation is quite worth it imo. That leaves probably 30 - 40 ish skill points left and I was thinking with the maxed holy shock and lightning theme that Foh would be a good idea Max FoH Convic to 25 after skills, maybe 10 x off Aura charms Rest vigor maybe I like the idea of not having to use a switch to get secondary attack like charge or something because im on 56k and switching mid duel it painful. Itmes Helmet: 5/5 Light Shako ( wont wear griffons because it looks awful) Armour: Low Str CoH Belt: Verg Cord Bow: Perfect Widowmaker (5/5 light facet maybe, Shael ? not sure on bow bp's) Gloves: Not sure, maybe partial set with boots or something (might need ias) Boots: Not sure, maybe partial set with gloves or something (Might need 40 r/w to avoid slowness) Amulet: Maras (might need highlors for ias ?) Ring1: Raven Ring2: Bk or something ? Stats Str: min for equipment Dex: min for equipment ? Ga is itd and all the damage will be lightning anyway Vit: All else Eng: none Charms: Haven't really got a good set of small charms with good mods so maybe 10 x offensive aura charms with life because they will be dirt cheap. Rest: Faster run walk charms with useful mods, Anni Summary - Pal has rapid firing auto tracking Arrows with insane amounts of lightning damage - Pal has Maxed Foh and syn / Conviction (25) so big foh damage to toss into the lighntning storm - Pal has immense potential life only needing a little str and dex. - Pal has maxes resists (CoH, Maras, charms if need be) - Pal is baal friendly (Lvl 40 resist lightning is going to make a joke of those souls) If anyone can see any serious problems with this build apart from the fact that it's all lightning damage and won't be able to duel Wind druids and a few other top notch nasty things please add some feed back to save me wasting my time building it. Also if anyone knows anything about bow bp's with widowmaker please give us a yell . I'm not looking for a char that owns everything otherwise there are already cheesy cookie chars to build, more something out of the usual that has a chance of doing some damage to some of the chars out there.
