cant have arcane archer and deepwood sniper together - even taken through the racial line, AA counts as a ranger PrE & will look out DWS. Your best bet will be either:
- Go fully arcane archer & ignore crossbows entirely, maybe switch to acrobat for rogue PrE to give an effective melee option through sticks when needed & the showtime ability will give extra DEX for more accuracy.
- Go mechanic plus DWS using repeaters, you wont be able to use manyshot very effectively but you'll still be decent with repeaters & able to get sneak attacks from extended range.

Have a look at my Triple A build; I did not go Mechanic, but it is possible to respec into it. As The Duck noted, however, you cannot have both AA & DWS.

I'm thinking Assassin III + AA should be some pretty good damage on 20's :D (not sure the new version of Assassin III works on bosses though...)
