    Default Soloing Mini Moncher - what level split?

    From reading the forums it sounds like ranged build are more viable than when I was playing last. I'd like to have a crack at a self sufficient archer but I'm not sure of the best mix of class levels, feats and enhancements.

    I'm set on a Halfling with full traps & healing dragonmarks; mix of rogue, monk and ranger. I know I've built in a few limitations there but I'm hoping I can make something that's fun to play even if it's not elite.

    Rough build below. Any suggestions on where to improve are welcome

    They really don't become powerful until they are running in maxed out fury of the wild.

    About zen archery and 10k stars, you will be using wisdom to hit and wisdom to determine how many arrows you shoot, so why so much dex?

    ranged, not pierce

    As a first life build you'd be better off with something like 11Ranger/6Monk/3Arti(Or 3Rogue)

    Over all this will net you:
    More skill points, EmpowerHeal'd CLW, CMW, 15 min Jump/Barkskin/Rams Might, full UMD and scroll mastery, better saves, the same sneak attack as your rogue split, more versatility in play style( IE. Full ranged feat lines, and full TWF feat lines for free. Means that at any time even if your main focus is ranged you can swap to melee and still do good DPS.) Enough feats to play around with.

    I don't see anything your class split gets that mine would not get that is of any importance except for maybe uncanny dodge.
    I do however see a lot of things my class split gets that yours would not have access to.
