    I ran into some one using bows for pvp first he used the black bow with poison arrows(to bad I have high poison res) and then used dragon bow I then later pointed him to the forums anyways I thought the build was very interesting and could be very fun to use

    I have been using the exact tactic you talk about, however, I have not been pointed towards the forum.

    When used right, it can be very effective.

    Good idea, put you'll need to be very skillful with that bow.

    Always keep Avelyn handy when making a build such as this for when they get too close. Cant get too many arrows off when their swinging a zwei in your face. Really cool build idea btw.

    ranger builds can be VERY effective if they have the room to move around and evade you. rant same here first time i ran into someone using a bow i was shocked how much they were kicking my ***, after a lot of failed bs attempts i got poisoned and then they did that bow bs thing to me sad

    Yes, it is surprisingly hard to kill someone who is using a DSB w/target lock if you try to run up and melee them. You can't really backstab 'cause their targeting swivels them to face you the entire time, no ripostes obviously, and the knockdown is a huge pain and hard to roll through. Only success I've really had 1v1 was by using soul spears and similar spells that are faster than the bow draw time, although even then you'll get shot a lot if you don't stagger them with your spell. A high stability shield (eagle) and breaking their target lock with chameleon or ring of fog can sometimes help.
