Armor-Go But_ AS- nake, or equipping very light armor;
Males: Wizard arms, or legs,
Females:Three cornered hat, old ragged clothes
Right hand main-Sticky compound long bow
Back up-Fatal Estoc(can do decent poke damage, and tremendous backstab)
Left Hand slot
TOB, any catalyst(if using silver coronet, recommend silver kat. I believe(forgive me if I'm wrong) that it will give enough extra MP for one more cast.
Second Left Hand Slot-Shields-Adjudicators to throw on back. Only shield even worth using for a tiny whin tiny bitty itty piece of HP regen.
Buckleys-If you choose to switch to fatal and want to switch between one and two handed.
Five items slots-
For psychological use-equip tons of firebombs(does no damage, but will stun opponent, and possibly allow you sneak in a shot with your white arrow.
Just a side note for anyone who may not have tried this-firebombs for PVE serve two purposes-Destroyong those fugly rats in 5-1 and world 1-1 tossing them at the dredglings will kill them in one shot(NG+, takes two. (in pure white world…i) Just make sure you aren't on top of one of the explosive boxes that llght your A_S up when if you are using anything that has fire damage.(Dragon weapons, black turp buff, fire arrows, firebombs…)
Other items to equip:
Dark Moon Grass-Always got to have that on you, especially to beat out those stoners that are incresaing in numbers on NA as I write this.
Ed's grindstone-Never leave the Nexus without it. carry tons at once
Daggars-Useful against catching someone in the midst of casting firestorm. Heck, even if you are trying to play a glitching running firestorm, catching them with a quick daggar, interupts there casting, which allows you some time to shoot your white arrow at them.
Same goes for kunais-Poison? What poision?
Where you equip arrows:
White arrows-This is your deadly weapon. Does great damage with high dex and recommend using these for PVP battles.
If on occasion, you have the chance to switch quickly and throw in a rotten arrow(possible kill if opp is very very low on HP since it has poison damage.
PVE-Using a bow can be fun if you mix things up. Aside from the ones mentioned above, other various types of arrows you get from NPC Graverobber in 4-2 are; :light, holy, fire, heck even wooden.
Body form: Eternal, Regen, Ring of Great strength(can equip extra armor with ability to still roll quickly)
For those who feel the need to use hyper-Clever, MORON blade.
Non-hyper but still gives body form huge advantage with this high vit-Dull's rat.
there is some confusion in speaking with others whether dulls is considered hyper. By definition, no it isn't. By PVP standards, IMO, yes it is. It gives an unfair advantage and I'll simply leave it at that.
Soul form: BP invader-Foe's/Cling
While you can choose whether to be in body, or soul form, a build like this really shines being in soul form because of the stacking of CT. For PVP, phantom form deals more damage, while sacrifciing HP, and gains an added boost using friends' or foes. This will increase the damage arrows deal quite a bit.
