No. Bowcharms do little for your damage. For PvP you want GCs 10max damage/ar/frw(or life)

Fortitude

Rare/crafted with +2 passive/20IAS/Knockback would be your best choice here.

Yes

Get them asap

Get Faith GmB and forget about merc. Mercs are no good PvP

Might/Pride merc is the best choice with GmB Faith when you PvM

I mentioned the charms + you also want a 145ed/45IAS Helm with 30FRW. 45 IAS is the key here, you must have 45 to reach the last Guided IAS breakpoint.

I would say you might be better off with zero vitality to maximise damage. The only real downside to this is getting owned by auradins/dreamers, but you get one or two shotted by everything anyway.
9x Bow GCs would *not* be a good idea. Those are valuable slots that can be used for damage charms.
Assuming the 60% is IAS, keep the 160/60. 40% damage isn't worth 60% IAS, unless you can figure an easy way to get more for your breakpoint.
I assume you're using M'av combo for the extra strength.. I think you should just pony up the extra 30 strength for some leeway in terms of what items you use. Also, unless you desperately want run/walk speed, lose the M'av belt. You have tons of mana leech anyway.
Seeing as you'll be dueling, I don't understand how you expect to keep your mercs alive :/ Unless you want to pay up 50k every few minutes. Just go with either WF or Faith for the nearest breakpoint.
I would say get Atma's if you want to put a little faith into your luck. When amp procs, no doubt you'll really own whoever you're attacking, but the problem is getting amp to proc :/

You seem to use a lot of your slots for leech. Leech really doesn't work in PvP for a bowazon. Your means of survivability are speed and mousemanship. Good practice would be to find a 200+ FCR Fireball sorceress and have them try to kill you. Start dodging them fireballs :)

As far as a switch goes, I would suggest Harmony. The extra speed is invaluable for evading hammerdins and sorces.

Your helm, I would say get a 120/45. Vamp gaze isn't helping you with damage or speed, which are the basis of a pvp bowzon.

Lastly, try to get that dex up to 400, and fill your inventory with max damage charms. That'll boost your damage immensely :)

Merc with reapers toll works well for phys immune also.

Faith matri has to be worth considering also as it hits the top bfs faster than gmb ,freeing up lots of ias slots.Im sure there is someone out there who may have reasons why gmb is better though?:smiley:

Reapers toll is very nice especially if its ethereal, makes your merc immortal essentially. But keep in mind some super unique monsters have immunity so high -50% from decrepify wont break. As a last resort I guess magic arrow will kill them even if its slow.

I find reapers very good to, maybe even better than pride, especially when PIs are involved and even more so if you consider price
