Archer + what 2 boxes?

PP + BD is definitely most common, best for levelling up.  At endgame an sws would be great for pvp, maybe let you hunt a few spots BD won't, but slower.

A recharge is also really useful at high level for fatal counter spam, but wouldn't replace either of your supports for one

Would maining a BD and have a PP buffer me a good duo?

What about soloing 

BD, technically, is neither a DD nor a tank (despite having offensive skills and heavy armor). PP, besides buffs, is pretty limited in how it can help speed up farming. A PP+DD is likely to be a better combo for soloing.

On the other hand, BD does not require books to learn dances, while PP requires books for its buffs. So if you don't yet have a main character, a PP+BD is a decent combo even for solo play.

PP can heal aswell. Idk I've been told by many ppl that BD is good for soloing. And that PP would be a good duo for it. Hence why I chose it.

The thing is, PP can heal as effectively as it can sleep (if you bought the book). Don't get me wrong, it is much better than nothing, but PP still contributes primarily via buffs.

You are correct that the duo will work well.

Hello,

So, I'm rolling a PR. What 2 buffers should i choose for boxing?

I would roll BD + SwS + PP, but I'm limited to two boxes, according to the rules.

Maybe PP + BD or PP + SwS?

 

Thanks!

Everything said here is valid, PP and BD is the best option...

But, let me say this...

Being Archer means that you kill slow, at least slower than a Wizz, I'm going with PP+SE for a future Necro, its ok exp for lvl 28-29, but I'm oneshooting everything with a Goat Head +1 and I was able to farm to buy that Goat head from Giran Shop with a Mage Staff, a Archer is not very good at that, it is going to be very difficult for you to keep up motivated if you slowly farm 3 acts with an Archer. So if you are very experienced forget all this and go ahead with PP+BD, but if you aren't you may consider going for only PP, a PP is good enough for a Archer, I have seen streams from Talking Island server of an Archer lv 48+ with only a PP and he kills very decently without a BD.

So if you are not very experience I would go with just a PP at least for now, cleric will give you might, focus and heal pretty quickly, the future BD is worthless as a dual box until 2nd change, yes at lvl 40 you will have a very good dance... Dance of Fire but until then is nothing, maybe is best if you go just with PP until your lvl 48-52 then with your PP is 52 that you dont really need it to lvl up more than that well maybe 58 for Greater Might but is going to be hard at that point so then you can do two things... 1 get a dual active BD, maybe even with SWS in dualbox, or 2 make the bd at that point, you will lvl up the BD alone, with a Sword of Revolution, with Brigadine set (because you will be able to buy that for your BD), and with a pp in lvl 52, you will get to 40 very quickly and as tank you will be very wanted in AOE parties more having in mind that you will have a 52 PP and on top of that a 52 archer guardian.

Well those are my recomendations. I hope it gives you another option that may like you.

Best Regards
