heya, just looking for some advice on where i should take this team
pr 98K mpr 67k
i have port royal on

HP: 14,613/14,613 ST: 66,805/29,752 DX: 46,224/21,770
AC: 27 Cone of cold: 20,238/20,652 (2,801)

and a lesser Toa
and Kentucky bourbon

just wondering, whether a i should get an enchanter with solely etheral chains as third minion or wether i should get another damage dealer, and what items would be good for this sort of team, any advice would be welcome.

Thanks, TBH

1) get a full tattoo
2) CoC is useless right now. MM is far more powerful
3) trying the CoC archery is not wise as proven numerous times in the past.

if i have MM will i still be using my exbow during ranged?

NO, that is the point.

Having a mage that uses weapons is an idea that came and went. Instead of a TOA, use a mage orientated tattoo like a TOE or a SF.

I like that strat idea setup. If I were you and I had a NUB, I'd see how far I could take it. Your main focus needs to be the CoC, using the ranged attacks to augment it. Forge up the Exbow to your maximum weapon allowance, and see if you can get away with using an RoE for a little while. You need to grow as fast as possible.

This strat works better with two damage dealing minions (much against Ranger's philosophy) because you can wear both BG and AG. I think a ToA is a waste, because it's pumping the augmentative damage source, not the primary. Try a ToE instead.

I guess the point is, if you want to go ahead with a CoC Archer, do it the best way possible -- two minions: a large one with CoC, a smaller one with ST/DX/BG/Exbow, and possibly a third later on as a PL enchanter or wall depending on what you need.

I'd get a SF or a ToE/Wall if I were going to get another minion and stick with CoC - after all, there are big ELBs that won't even let you make it into melee rounds unless you've either got the kill slots or the damage reduction to stop them.

most of the battles i win, are won by the end of ranged, cause my exbow does an average of 30k damage, getting double hits, i was thinking ethereal chains so that i could get tripple hits

See if you can increase the score:pr ratio of the people you win against by switching to an RoE. You'll have to fight lower, but your PR will be lower. If you can, then keep on going and don't hire another minion yet.

the problem i have with switching tat's is I'm using a 83k tat that is giving me most of my st and dex, changing tat's would cut them in half
