    For which you have pre reqs feats such as Point Plank if i am not mistaken but you can double check in the feats compendium.

    You need a total of three feats for Shot on the Run. (Point Blank shot, Dodge and Mobility IIRC) For anyone with a bunch of adds in Ranged attacks, many of us are not convinced that SoTR is worth the feat investment for a Ranger. (For a Range Attacking Fighter, it might well be, since they have tons of feats to spend.)

    You can easily see the results by watching the to hit die rolls when standing still and when moving/running. They will all be 4 lower when runnning. If you see that you are still hitting the mobs at +15 vs +19 while standing, that tells you that the +4 difference is wasted. Against real high AC mobs, I might drop a few Destruction shots their way to drop 4 AC, and then switch to preferred bow.

    A good example is in the Giant Caves in Threnal. The Captains have a very high AC. High enough that missing them comes into play. Spread out some armor Destruction on all of the mobs, and then go at them.
