or Deserters?

Jester's bow is most powerful weapon for archers
My rogue is near Lv 20, dps 46 with Jester's bow

But heavy armed enemies like vengeful ghost or deserters
absorb plenty amount of jester's damage
When I meet them
I usualy try to stand Hirge on door ways
And when get swarmed
trying sweep weaker enemies particulary ranged first
while evasion or rapid fire is in activity

or just sprint to seperate them
ot just quaff potions atleast 2 kind of

When my rogue was Lv.11
those were good tactics
But he is 19 now
0 point of str Hirge with bane is stronger than my rogue in this situation

I mean is
I think I'm doing something wrong
I think I should swap weapon to handle heavy armed enemies
Sonnet would be better?
with few points of stab?

Every sujestion and advice will be welcomed

Sorry about my bad English
Tanks for reading this

Jester's Bow, Rapid Shot 3, Poison Mastery 3 with Scorpion Venom, Precision Shots 3, Massive Criticals 3. Evason 3, drinking Potion of Shielding and have pots of lesser resto on hand. Keep a Vulcan Bow in inventory for Trolls...


I am an Archer only, I rarely switch to melee... with my Rogue at least.

I use Hirge, Blessed Chain or whatever gives higher Mana..., Heal 3, Crusader, and all other passives...

Thanks for sharing your build

Very similar to mine!
Jester/Vulcano, ranged only Rogue
and Heal 3, every sp to passives Hirge

The difference is
I'm using poisons without Poison Mastery
I splended 49 points of traits 3-0-8-1-3-0 (3-1-9-2-4-0)
and 0 point float

If swapping weapon to meele is not the solution
maybe I sould use poison mastery agiain when my rogue is Lv.21
Hope I could handle the heavy armed with ease then

I think its good you struggle against heavily armed foes as a rogue. It is realistic they would be a enemy type you are weak against. Even the strongest bow had trouble with heavy armor infantry throughout history (large scale battles obviously).

Crossbows were always known as the 'armor piercing' type of ranged weaponry in many games, so perhaps they will be a weapon type added at some point. Much slower speed but higher damage (2h v 1h version of ranged).

Yo no hablo Portuguese, pero si quieres, yo hablo Español si es mas facil para ti... Entonces, si eres nivel 19 ahorita, 1 - 4 puntos... 2 - 19 - 36 puntos por 40 puntos en todo. Mas los Antiguo tomos de Tolassian usas. Creo mas puntos en Agilidad es bn si posible... tienes 6 puntos en Fuerza... Tengo 0 xq necesito esto punto en Agilidad. Si me intiendes, cambiar Fuerza alas 0 y Percepción alas 2... este manarte 9 puntos disponible por Agilidad... es mejor.

Slow and heavy shots from cross bows would be a good solution and realistic

An off hand accessory like quivers
which is giving us higher/lower fire rate
and lighter/heavier shots could be cool too
We can combine our every bows with them
Ah must be exciting

lol sorry I got my people mixed up... :)

Annyeonghaseyo. My Hangul is very very rusty... but I can give it a shot if needed...

I was saying that at level 19 you have spent the base 40 points and 9 points with the Ancient Tolassian Tomes... Assuming my math is correct.

What I recommend is changing your stats to a 0 in Strength, a 2 in Perception... This gives you the 9 points you need to raise your Agility. It is better overall in my opinion.

Annyeonghaseyo :lol:

Does 0 str mean no massive strike?
Because of critical rate of Jesters's bow is very low right?
I'll try it!

Precision Strike is melee Precision Shot is bow... Massive Criticals is both... But save your points for the next 2 levels and regain Massive Criticals afterwards... Rapid Shot 3 and Precision Shot 3 is better for the immediate use... Massive Criticals, while doing a little more damage occasionally, is really for the instakill chance on those monsters lower level than you.

Higher Agility also means a better chance at disarming traps for that wonderful XP
