The standard build for a Ranger that uses the newly updated Arcane Archer enhancements and Elf enhancements. The purpose of this build is simple: take advantage of your free Two Weapon Fighting feats by using two weapons, until level 6. At level 6 when you unlock Paralyzing Arrows and Manyshot you will switch to a longbow for good. The role of an Arcane Archer is to stay infront of the healer and support the group with CC from Paralyzing Arrows and damage.

  • During boss fights activate your Manyshot to deal heavy damage, but be careful if you take the aggro from the boss.
  • Keep Paralyzing Arrows open at all times, unless you are fighting a boss that is immune to paralysis. In that case switch to Shock Arrows.
  • Keep Improved Precise Shot active when fighting multiple enemies and aim for the casters. Switch to Archer's Focus only during boss fights when it's time to hit the boss.
  • Str is not needed for Elves because of Grace, but will be very helpful until Grace has been unlocked.
  • Dex increases your Attack bonus and is very important.
  • Wis is needed to be able to cast your spells (11Wis for level 1 spells, 12Wis for level 2 spells and so on.)
