I have recently reinstalled TQ and I recall the Bringand class well. My bread and butter was bow spamming into a cloud of baddies and watching nightshade/mandrake do their thing. I love status effects, and the shrapnel effect of the arrows were fun. I am currently ready to try something new but Im in no hurry to leave the hunter tree just yet. I was thinking sage with Storm Nimbus tree maxed out to give a slow near me, a cold or lightning proc, and some extra damage with chained lightning. I am behind a firewall so no Titan calc please. I would want to get good armor if I could but I will not be tanking so... thats a secondary. Where are the pitfalls with this build? Open with frost shards then nuke with bow? Skills considered most important to me are:
Marksmanship (Full Tree)
Study Prey (with Flush out)
Art of the hunt (with Find Cover)
Considering for Spare points: Herbal Rem, Monster Decoy, Volly.
Storm Nimbus (Full Tree)
Squall (Full Tree)
What else should I consider? What should I expect from this build? I worry about energy. Stats are Dex/Intel/Energy? Thanks!
