So, i have a character that i run only with my cousin. Right now it's a Bard and his character is a Paladin. We decided that we'd make these characters triple completionists. As an additional challenge we're each only going to use the weapons that we used during the first life through ALL of our lives (Except for spell casters and Artificers). As a result i have decided to plan out the lives for the other classes early; specifically Paladin for this post.

With this build i wanted to get the Hunter of the Dead PrE as well as the Elven Arcane Archer. i made sure to get Toughness, WF:Ranged, Point Blank Shot, Rapid Shot, Manyshot, Precise Shot, and IPS. i didn't bother making items for it in the character planner since it's still missing quite a few of them.

What i was wondering was if any of you forumites could give me ways to make it better (While keeping it elf race, keeping AA and HotD, and obviously using bows). As well as whether Smite Evil and other Paladin abilities work with ranged weapons? if not than that frees up a few APs for me.

without further adieu, here is Calanndra as a lvl 25 paladin:
