I've just come back to the game after quite a few years and created an archer/mage. I've been trying to figure what to do with my stats. Since I technically need all 3, should I balance them? If so, I won't be able to use hxbow w/o buffs.

75 str
75 int
75 dex

or should I concentrate on the primary skills, and use lighter bows/xbows?

50 str
87 int
86 dex

or.... ?

What do you want to do with your Archer Mage? PvP? PvM? What kind of PvM? Peerlesses? Or only ettins? Or something in between, like the Swoop?

Eventually I'll probably PvP, but for now I'm just worried about PvM. I'd like to take it as far as I can. Currently I'm doing Titans/Cyclops (Most of my skills are in the 80s), but I'd like to get to end-game.

Unfortunately I don't really know much about end-game atm, so I can't really name any specific areas.

How different would the stat template look if I start doing PvP?

Honestly I don't know how to be effective as an archer-mage. But maybe dragkiris, Mirt and others know.

Honestly these hybrid templates are more pvp builds. But I dont think archery is the best route. If your wanting a casting spell for summons and heal I would say mystic would be better route. RC makes a much better tank, you get healstone, can keep cleanse winds on spell trigger. For the PvM aspect of it I would say if you had 75 mana at 40 lmc that should be fine with a good mana leach bow.
