PvM Arcane Archer Fighter 10 / Wiz 1 / AA 29

Post by Drow Arrow »

This build primarily came about after I had started off using someone else's build for an AA which used bard song and divine might, which I soon discovered I dislike heavily as I didn't want to have to be recasting my buffs mid fight and I like my builds to just work with little to no micromanaging on my part if I can.

I do take this build on raids and it works fine for any of you wondering, but if you're looking for something with more utility you can find my alternate AA build here

Anyway the build is as follows:

Wizard(1), Fighter(10), Arcane Archer(29), Elf

STR: 18 (26)
DEX: 18 (26)
CON: 8
WIS: 8
INT: 10

07: Wizard(1): {Scribe Scroll}
08: Arcane Archer(1): STR+1, (STR=20)
09: Arcane Archer(2): Cleave

With a +20 longbow and no Dex bonus from gear the AB is 75

Dev Crit requires STR 26, not STR 25, so you can't take it at level 24. Have to take that at 30, which is when you get to STR 26.

Factually incorrect my good sir/madam.

My bad, you're right! Sorry for the incorrect criticism. Not sure where I got the impression the requirement was 26 as opposed to 25. Could've swore I looked that up recently too, but alas, I am indeed incorrect. Again, sincerest apologies for the mistake :)
