archers are great for RP
Hi ranger 101
Actually I'm very interested in archers too (I started a long thread about them short time ago, probably the one you read).
As it seems, you are interested in role playing? Then I'd suggest using an axe for your archer. Sounds strange probably on first hand, but consider, he's a ranger kit. And they tend to be in forests using some raw weapns (I think thats why minsc [whom I like too] has a slot in mace).
And there are some quite good axe weapons in the game.
And dont mind the "weapon ineffective"-thing. It gets better as you continue in the game, since you will be able to get better (enchanted) weapons soon. Still be ready to have your char put down his bow from time to time, cause there are some enemies that cant be put down with a bow. But dragons can
so don't worry
@pebz: Hey, didn't you want to design a cool longbow for an archer some days ago? What happened to it? I'm still looking forward to seeing it someday *bg* Would be cool, if you could manage it.
The worst sins are those which you are going to regret the most not having done them when you could!
