    Default 14 Monk 6 Fighter arcane archer theory build

    Hoping this might get good enough damage and high enough dc's to be worth my time for reaper 1-5 what you guy's think.

    I expect it'll get good enough DC's for R1-R5 if your gear is good enough my current 17 monk/1 wiz paralyzing arcane archer has been known to para in some R8's so far. Mind you heroic DC's are fairly easy to hit; we'll see how it works in legendary.

    A breakdown of my archer's current DC (level 18):

    Wisdom breakdown:
    Starting stat 18
    Levelups +4
    Reaper points +1 (permanent)
    Wisdom item +8
    Insightful wisdom +3
    Profane wisdom +1
    Tome +2
    Enhancements +3
    Ship buffs +2
    Water stance +3
    Total wisdom in elite: 45

    Paralyzing arrows:
    Base 20
    45 Wisdom +17
    Enchant item +3
    Arcane archer enhancements +4
    Spell focus feat +1

    Total in elite: 45

    Reaper (19 points):
    +3 DC from reaper tree;
    +2 DC from extra wisdom from reaper tree

    Total in reaper: 50

    I could have pushed the DC higher with pastlives; better tomes; yugo/rem pots or an insightful enchantment item (I planned to have that last one; but it turns out neck items only allow insightful enchantment resistance not insightful enchantment dc oops). But I feel like I have a good enough DC that anything I shoot that isn't immediately paralyzed must be immune. Or I missed it.

    10k stars is good; make sure to take it. It's not as strong as manyshot; but longer duration and if you have both then you're in super-mode twice as often.

    I don't feel like my damage is very high; and below level 15 was somewhat painful (like most non-ranger archers); but it certainly is a decent build after level 15. Carry a good bow for lower difficulties (elite to R3ish) and a vorpal bow for higher difficulties. If you're lucky you can get assassinate DC's as a rider for your vorpal bow. (You are going falconry yes?) Not sure how your AP spread is going to look if you're trying to also fit kensai into my already-tight-AP split between falconry and elf arcane archer.
