    Strafe and AR

    Strafe does not boost AR at all according to the Arreat Summit, so I was wondering if lower level characters had problems with AR while using strafe. This is for something I am working on for PVP/PK. Heck, someone out there has probably built one before. I am looking at level 30-40 range.

    Any suggestions/tips regarding AR would be helpful.

    I would post this in the Zon forum but I trust the HC people a little more on their technical knowlege...

    Yeah, AR is a pain with strafe. Only so many things you can do about it:
    1) More dex
    2) Penetrate points or +passive gear to boost penetrate
    3) Eth your bow
    4) Inner sight
    5) Lavagouts can cause a lvl10 enchant which helps AR. But too high a lvl I think for what your doing and for pvp it probably wouldn't go off in time.
    6) Enchant yourself with demon limb.

    That's all I can think of right now. Anyone else?

    I am not so sure straff would be all that good for a pker. First, you have the 3/4 penality for straff on top of the pvp penality. Also, your zon could be destracted by monsters possibly not seen on your screen and be wasting arrows. I think I would use freeze arrow then good ol' GA.

    This WAS going to be a quick PK death but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, you had to step in and point out the MAJOR flaw in skill choice!

    hehe Brother Stinger. From the sound of his post, I'd bet he is a softie, looking for l337 HC advice.

    Stinger, don't tell me you don't get any "easy" PK ears as it is. They fall to the ground all the time...

    And by the way, wat's fun about getting easy ears?

    Any Pk ear easy or difficult is worth having as I know each of them cost more than 2-3 of most of my completed characters gear wise!

    i just wish i could catch them on thier first attempt, smake them down and show em its not nice to be Pked!

    I once actually looked into TPPK simply to hunt TPPK but when I stopped drinking, went to bed, got up and realized how freaking stupid it was I never did it, but dont go thinking it doesnt cross my mind from time to time each time I see some poor new guy loose all his recently hard earned solid gear to some lame punk!

    Pathetic

    BTW, although i hate PK in general I have little issues with those that do it within the ruels!
