Solo Archer High Level Abilities

Postby Novos » Sat Sep 21, 2013 7:15 am

Hey all!

Trying my hand at a full out Archer solo and I've just hit level 18. Does anyone have advice on some high level abilities? Hardiness looks good, as does magic resistance, tracking is useless I think. Maybe shoot for greater whirlwind? Though I don't really use melee weapons at the moment. Wish we had a summon spell :( Tank would be great.

Any advice would be awesome, thanks so much!

Death blow and greater deathblow are very useful, even in ToB; I'm pretty sure they work with missile weapons and being able to take out Illithids and Beholders with one hit is very useful.

The magic resistance HLA doesn't stack, which given the MR items you can get makes it virtually useless. Hardiness, especially in concert with certain items which give you physical resistance is also very good. Whirlwind and grater whirlwind are also good, as are the power blow HLAs.
