Ranger PvP with Widowmaker?

Hi, i noticed today that i have a 192ed%/+5 guided widowmaker sitting around that i got from hell baal when helping a friend. I have seen some posts before about a ranger build using widowmaker and auras such as holy freeze to slow down the enemy while you pelt them with guided arrows. Can someone point me in the right direction of a stat/skill/item setup for such a char? I'm not poor but i'm not "rich" (ie. can't afford great charms or 160/60 armor or such things). I do have a chains of honor archon plate (made using a ber that i was incredibly lucky to get from a flayer monster in hell) as well as things such as goreriders and highlords. Any help?

Take a look at the "Ranger Index" on top of the page for gear suggestions.

With either Fanaticism, Holy Fire (full synergies), Holy Freeze (full synergies), or Holy Shock (full synergies) the bows with the most damage are:

1. Windforce (asssuming 50% DS)
2. Eaglehorn (assuming 50% DS)
3. Widowmaker (assuming 80% DS)
4. Upgraded Witchwild (assuming 100% DS)

The guided only adds another 20% ED to the off-weapon damage calculation.

WF will do ~1500 more points average physical damage than Widowmaker , with Fanat. Eaglehorn will do ~500 more.
 
for PvP go with the widowmaker and put your skill in...

20 Fanaticism
20 Holy Freeze
20 Holy Shield
20 Smite
rest into Defiance or Resist Lightning or Vigor or a combination of the 3.

Shako
Chain of Honor
Verdungo
weapon 1:WindowMaker
weapon 2: Redeemer/Herald of Zak or Silence Zerker / Herald of Zak
Highlord
Raven Frost/ BK ring
Any boots since you not rich
bloodfist or 20ias glove with resist/ Life leech

If i went with such a smite/ranger setup for pvp, what kind of stat investment should i do?
