    You mean as an archer build? You wanna focus on dex, or a 40/40 if you're going PVP. With dex you can use the shortbow for close-mid-ranged combat, and back yourself up with faster, lighter weapons to keep yourself agile. With a 40/40 you can use the composite and get more damage out, with the benefit of more weapons to use.

    By 40/40, he means 40 Str and 40 Dex.

    well, if you're gonna throw in a katana as back up, I'd say just raise your str to 14, focus on dex til it's at 40 (you almost never wanna go past that due to diminishing returns)

    For PVP, stock up on large and poison arrows, and learn to space yourself and fire when you know you'll land atleast a phantom hit. With poison arrows it doesn't really matter if you score damage, as long as the arrow lands so you can build up their bar.

    Here's a 99 build, just to serve as an example you can use. http://tinyurl.com/9po63hl

    You can also make a Faith or Int archer. 50 Faith or Int, enchanted/magic or divine/occult Composite Bow with moonlight arrows. Boom the hunter of the gods.

    No just base requirements (11 Str and 12 Dex for Composite Bow).

    Take a look on the weapons that you have on Dark Souls:
    http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/Bows
    http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/Greatbows
    http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/Crossbows
    The Avelyn is a awesome weapon for PVE and PVP in some situations too.

    Oookay... Archer, I would first suggest making 100 crystal shortbows +4, they hit like a truck. I will link you to my berserk archer build.
    http://tinyurl.com/9hmr266

    I will adapt this build to fit your needs though... perhaps as an archer you could run something like this, it should fit your specifications

    http://tinyurl.com/9xp7ouq

    and if you dislike the falchion you can remove that from your repertoire altogether and you end up like this: http://tinyurl.com/9uh43rv

    On a note, that armor setup I suggested looks amazing on both male and female characters. Feel free to try any of these.

    Dodge the spells or block them. She will get tired and will get close to you so you can hit her with all you got. Then she will explode if still alive and repeat the process. You cal also summon the witch, her sign is below the staircase. You need to be human for that.

    I usually don't farm, just lay down my sign for jolly coop. My favorite is Gaping Dragon and Iron Golem, they give a lot of souls for each coop.
