    So, what is the best Solo Ranged (Longbow) build to accomplish this deed?
    I'm not really an archer guy (which is why I've been hoping someone else will comment), but I'll give it a shot.

    If all you're looking for is soloing EPL's as quickly as possible (based on "farm") I assume you'll mostly be running dailies. I also assume Strintom's AA build is off the table, so how about 11/9 Ranger/Monk? Using 10k to alternate with Manyshot (45% DS & Wis to RP is pretty solid?). Falconry means you can Wis-max, so:

    36 DWS (Doubleshot, RP, +5 damage)
    22-26 AA (Paralyzing, opt Wis & +2 Enchant)
    22-23 Falconry (Wis to-hit & Damage, Sprint, 2/3 Deadly Instinct)

    Featwise you should be able to grab everything you want lol (Ranger free feats + Monk bonus feats). Make sure you get Zen Archery and Spell Focus:Enchantment (so you can twist Magister School Focus for +3 if you need better DC's); I'd probably grab GSF:Enchantment as well if you can afford it. Can grab more Stance feats with spares.

    Literally one-stat wonder, Wis > everything else (aim for 21 Dex for Combat Archery if you have a +3 or greater tome, otherwise don't bother). Get everything +Wis possible, then like Deadly/Seeker/Doubleshot/Armorpiercing per usual, get +Enchant, and gg. You'll want to keep Tenser's scrolls around for max DPS (AS bonus, RP bonus via Manyshot). Use passive ki-gen to power 10k stars. Con only matters if you get hit lol (and you will have 95% of everything CC'ed). Enough Strength for carrying capacity.

    Frankly I'd probably run Terror Arrows a lot unless there's few enemies. Since you're soloing, no problem if enemies get feared and run away, just keep moving and gather more of them to mow down with IPS. If Paralyzing Arrows granted helpless (as seems logical) I'd totally use them, but since it doesn't... Paralyzing is probably the "safest" option though.

    That said, running Strintom's with twisted Energy Burst seems pretty fun (blew my mind when I realized I could on my blaster Cleric lol).

    I feel like I come back to DDO every few years to see if fvs/cleric in pajamas or centered clonk build is back in vogue yet. What would be the best build to use for this playstyle today?

    Nerfs to Henshin MP in early cores hurt a bit, but I ran a life as a 8/6/6 Fighter/Cleric/Monk, PDK centered Silvanus build? Was a while ago though, so better Warpriest/War Soul trees, Domains, and FvS benefits help a bit You have a TON of active attacks though, so I mostly just used Fists of Light from Monk (Fists of Iron when there was tons of healing around). Pretty nice "free" heals between that and Ameliorating Strike though Throw a few feats into Fire Stance and you get +1 on 19-20 as well, which is pretty nice.

    Could probably run quite well with Falconry these days, as a Wis-max. You either get Displacement from Luck Domain, or War Soul's excellent Divine Will.

    ------

    Otherwise, I think you could consider a Vol VKF build, just capstone there and split however you want? I'd suggest 15/5 Monk/Cleric for Displacement, 12/5/3 with Pally/Fighter dip, or 12/8 FvS for buffs etc? Falconry for Wis-build, War Soul for Ameliorating, Ninja Spy for Incorp, etc?

    I guess what I'm wondering is what you're looking for with the multiclass. Is it just flavor? Do you want to be a spellcasting Monk? Or a punchy Divine caster? Knowing more of that will help us fit your interests better.
