I just started looking at some of the melee feats and well ..... If I die I'm rolling a fighter ranger dual wep xD so anything a fighter can pick up as a bonus feat ... Can he do it without prerequisites? Or whats the deal with that ?? Cause it would greatly expand my feat selection xD

Edit from what I have read he can bypass the perquisites

nope, you have to have the pre-requesits for the feat. In the Rangers feat table he does not have to have the pre-requisites but for anything else he does.

Now remember, with these epic contributions to combat... you're not likely to get a very good archer out of him.

Eventually he'll do something productive... I swear, if this flaming elephant idea doesn't pay off... he's gonna feel terrible, absolutely terrible.... for about 30 seconds maybe.

Kaylara: The church of Helm is offering it to anyone who works for the church. It was a selling point for knights to migrate here to help them establish a strong hold. This group would get the validation from Sir Draven, is all he is saying. He may just be talking ****, or be mistaken. Who knows. They woul charge a heafty fee or keep you in the service of the church, even possibly with a Geas spell, depending on your alignment.

If a person dies they usually have a hearing to see if there is enough evidence that the character is basically a good or dutiful person before they are raised. the church will not Raise and evil person.

Nove: 2 fighter/2nd ranger duo wield would be very awesome. But Rylan is a ranged ranger and it would fit into the story and also be awesome if you were a ranged character, considering you would be the only one basically ( Besides the mage and the cleric :P)

If you think about it though you could be both if you are a fighter. Use a bonus feat or two to get the ranged feats, and take advantage of the free duo weapon fighting. And I think they did away with the Ambidexterous feat in 3.5 didn't they?

And a note about yoour God. Torm is the god of paladins basically. He represents Courage, honor and Valor. Him and his followers are known for sometimes fool-heartedly charging into danger without fear of the consequences. Chauntea is he Godess of Nature and Agriculture. Mielikki is the forest queen and Godess of the Woodlands. Her followers are sworn protecters of the wilderness and animals in particular. The godess is known to intervene sometimes and heal innocent wounded animals. Ultimate tree-huggin hippies.

I know lol you told me once xD I don't to be crazy about animals .... Just good with them. As for the archery 3.5 is not archer friendly at all. I'm look at the feats and its garbage i haven't spent maybe 6 hours so far researching and looking for good ones and I come up empty handed. I have listed what I can on my char sheet but it's just nothing near the dmg a barb would be doing on a much less crit chance no matter how u cut it. Keen and IMp crit don't stack soo nothing I can and I can't go down the critical route for dmg. I kinda have to get a great bow and then enhance it with like cold fire sonic exit wounds and I need to go into scout to get skirmish or I need to find away into arcane archer while being fight so I may have to get the fighter wizard feat ... Prestige my lvls of fighter for a wizard then prestige ranger into arcane to not get the reduced xp. It's a royal pain. Or I can just suck it up and go switch hitter. Or just kite really effectively with shot on the run rapid and rapid shot. But like I said there's no way to get crit down to 17 with a bow and no way to get a vorpal bow. There's no way to make a arrow deal 3d8 dmg without magic or being a scout or rogue. There's just so many stupid roadblocks. Oh I can't ranged power attack. It's just road block after roadblock. What I can do though is get swarm of arrows and arrow storm which allows me to hit every enemy in front me of twice limited by max dex mod. Which is nice. I can force a critical with hunters mercy. I can add dmg with hunters eye and foebane. Basically we are a decent hp class with moderate dmg and decent hit chance when rolled correctly. I smell lots of quests for the right magical bow then I couldn't careless about how it plays out till the weapon gets detonated by a spell. Then I will be mad. Also a lot of the preqs for the feats are stupid high. Swarm of arrows I believe requires 23 dex ........ So I can't use it naturally will take several levels. Roughly 20. So I'll need magical items for it haha.

It's just a royal pain to get confident as an archer without taking twf and some other feats like weapon focus and then just ramping dmg through melee while being annoying from a distance and then going now you die ! And pray I don't get 1 hit lmao

And I can't become an arcane archer cause I'm not a half elf lol once again restrictions !!!!!!!! Frustrating

Well what I can do on the bright side is go into order of the bow initiate and ramp dmg that way and pick up a lvl of scout take only 90% xp and deal much more dmg. Would look like 1d8 from my bow then 1d8 dmg from lvl 1 order of the bow + 1d6 from scout only if I moved x distance before shooting. The dmg would only be on the first shot and my rapid shot would be 1d8 +1d6 if I moved before shooting. This would be at 6th level. Yeah don't have a choice. Gotta go next lvl into scout. The following into fighter. Then prestige. Which I'll have to give up scout for. So I would be a order of the bow / fighter / ranger / scout. Lol while losing scout for order. Jesus. What a mess. And of course I'll need swift hunter so my ranger lvls count towards skirmish. Then I'll be useless when I run out of arrows xD

If I live long enough as this top end dmg is my bow 1d8 + 5d8 (oftbi) + 5d6( skirmish). Which is great haha non magical. Top end roll 78 dmg. Though that's like level 30 ish or more. Sooo it sucks xD when koargh is hitting 5 times dealing dmg in the forum of dying creatures xD

Nice thing though by that level I can use arrow storm and swarm if arrows so it is balanced i suppose xD though it can also crit for 3x dmg which is not fair.

Sorry for the essay

Ambidexterity was a specific Feat you needed in 3.0 D&D (possibly older editions as well) but in 3.5 its not an issue anymore. If you have light armor or no armor, you get the ranger bonus feats described by the class. You can look at the feat Two Weapon Fighting, which reduces the attack penalties for fighting with two weapons instead of a weapon and a shield, or a weapon in two hands, and you are considered to have it only when you meet the armor requirements. Dont forget that a heavy burden can push you to a medium encumbrance and thus lose your feat...drop that heavy pack at the beginning of combat to free up your character and make yourself a better fighter.

why bother with all that.. get a bow of true strike (its like 8000gp i think. all attacks treated with +20 to hit) and shoot nothing but arrows of slaying...
then focus on your bow feats like rapid shot... theres an arrow for everything... golem bane etc etc.. arrows are cheap too, thats a major freedom vs meele..
