Is Archery still a viable PVE combat skill?

I am returning to the game and am hoping to update my archer/fisherman. I am going to focus mostly on the PVE aspects of the game at this point. My current template is something like this:

archery 115
tactics 115
fishing 100
healing 90
anatomy 94.5
bushido 95.4
chivalry 80

I have a 720 skill cap as well and no real gear to speak of.

My stats are as follows:

str 108
dex 124
int 13

I would love to buy a +25 stat scroll when I am able to earn some gold for it. In the meantime I need to try and equip him the best possible way with a somewhat limited budget.

Is this skillset, or its completed version still viable in most PVE? I don't see myself trying to attempt the most difficult encounters solo at all.

Thanks in advance.

I'm planing also to build an archer/fisherman as same as you. I read many postings about this template here in UOForums. My template will be:
120 fishing
120 archery
100 tactics
100 anatomy
90 healing
100 bushido
70 chivalry
700 total skill cap

So maybe you can raise bushido to 120.

I think, its easier to kill the harrower with 3 or more friends as earn the money. Cause the price for a +25 stat scroll is about 5-6 mio.

My plan about the stats is to raise str to 100, dex to max 125 and int 30. I think you need more int for use and train bushido and chivalry.

I hope my answer was helpful.
