View Full Version : Ranged Weapon Feats.

2007-02-18, 06:03 PM
Ok I am leveling up my fighter from 8th level to 9th and am looking for a good ranged weapon feat. I use a Longbow and have the following feats:
Point Blank Shot
Weapon Focus (Longbow)
Greater Weapon Focus (Longbow)
Rapid Shot
Many Shot
Percise Shot
Improved Rapid Shot
Weapin Specilization (Longbow)

So what is a good feat for me?

Yup, Greater Many Shot is your best bet.

Cool I was looking for this feat acctually but couldn't find it. I like my guy his full round attack at 9th level with a +1 bow is +19/+19/+14 and as a standard action +15/+15.

Thanks feel free to list more feats. I need one more before I can get Greater Weapon Spec. and Improved Percise Shot.

Shot on the Run

just to be the odd ball look up a feat called ancestral relic in Book of Exalted Deeds

Greater Many shot is a good feat, but the best one you can take right now is Ranged Weapon Mastery. It's in PH2.

2007-02-18, 06:44 PM
Good point. That's well worth taking if your DM allows it at Level 8, instead of Greater Weapon Focus.

Just to follow my first post:
I'd leave Greater Manyshot for 10th level. And get GWE and improved precise shot at 12th.

2007-02-18, 07:31 PM
What's GWE?

2007-02-18, 09:01 PM
My mistake... It's GWS
Greater Weapon Specialization

That was the plan for level 12. I don't have PHB2 for Ranged Weapon Mastery though. Shucks.

bascily i think roughly if compared to rangers favored enemy bit .. its for everything with long range weapontry except 2 damage and 2 to hit

Yeah, that's a pitty. You would certainly like that feat. Unfortunately, I don't think I can describe it to you.

I do know, however, that I can link you to this (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/ex/20060501a&page=4) and tell to look at Ranged Weapon Mastery.

Huh, that description on the Wizard's Site does a very poor job of describing this Feat, unless that was what was originally intended. Interesting.

2007-02-19, 12:48 PM
Yes, that description is one of the most problematic I've ever seen. Now that I think of it, it wasn't even worth posting.

My thanks to douglas for posting the full description.

My thanks that is very nice. Yeah of a range of 185 with my bow and +21/+21/+16 Yay! Now all I need is a better bow.

2007-02-19, 05:20 PM
Is that range with or without range increments?

2007-02-19, 05:34 PM
Without. Acctually I think it might be 195 with that feat. 110 + 20 (from that feat.) X 1.5 for far shot. Or else 110 X 1.5 + 20 for 185. So the farthest I could shoot is 1950 at -20 to my attack.

Woodland Archer (http://realmshelps.dandello.net/cgi-bin/feats.pl?Woodland_Archer,RW) from RoW is also a very nice feat. The name is misleading, you can use this tactical feat in any terrain.

2007-02-19, 06:39 PM
I saw that one. Unfortently DM didn't approve it since he didn't have the book and thought it was a bit overpowered.
