    Question 1st life human arty gear

    I plan to keep this guy around and farm for other two toons - I have already been properly scolded in-game for not going WF, so that aside - what are the best items around for Arty's?

    NOTE: I do not yet have the Underdark expansion, but am otherwise P2P.

    I'm really making this up as I go along...

    Forget warforged - they're ugly!

    For repeaters, you need:

    1. banishing
    2. disruption (oh holy or good blast, or both)
    3. smiting (of sonic or force; failing those electricity is ok)

    If possible:

    +++ GS (good, holy, good - high damage output, cheap to make)
    Lit II GS (elec, good blast, elec - highest damaging repeater from 12-17, expensive to make; certain alchemical repeaters beat it after that)
    Rad II (best for sneak attack damage and damage avoidance; expensive to make)

    If you can't get a GS triple pos, get the Silver Slinger (level 16). The Doublecross xbow is good, too (level 16). But GS weapons are better, if you can make them.

    Not likely possible:

    - alchemical tier two weapon from lvl 18 (tier 3 from 20).

    For armor:

    At lowbie levels, I recommend armor of fear. That way, when you get overrun, most of them will run away after only damaging you once. At higher levels, blue dragon armor will add a lot to your rune arm + spell damage or the Full Plate of the Defender will see you missed a lot. I generally wear medium armor for it's higher PRR and usually higher AC, but some like it light.

    Scrolls:

    - displacement
    - teleport
    - raise dead
    - healing

    Wands:

    - cure serious at low levels
    - cure critical at higher
    (you can get your neut poison, remove curse, etc in wands, too, but they're slower to use than potions).

    Wind Holwer Bracers

    Ring of the Stalker (House C challenges)
    Ring of the Archmagi (just at the beginning of quests so you have +200 sp to spare - anything of the archmagi will do, though; then swap to some other item).

    Minos Legions

    From level 18 - Googles and Gloves of the Tinkerer (it's a set), Boots of Propulsion

    And - some kind of Con item, False life item.

    Last, remember that arties use clickies really well:

    Expeditious Retreat as it speeds you up when the rune arm slows you down
    Haste
    Blur (or get a permablur item)
    Heroism
    Solid Fog (situational)
    Acid Fog (situational)
    Divine Might (increases your base attack bonus, which is reported to increase your rate of fire).
