View Full Version : (PF) Eidolon Archer!

2010-05-20, 06:39 PM
So I had this Idea for an Eidolon that uses bows!
It goes a little something like this.

At lvl 5
Biped: AC:+2 natural, Str:16 Dex:12, Free evolutions: Limbs (arms), Limbs (legs), Claws
Limbs Arms - 2 points
Limbs Arms - 2 points
Martial Weapon Prof. Longbow 4 points
3x Composite Longbow +3

Point Blank Shot
Rapid Shot

Would this work or should I just stick with the Quadruped Pounce uber charge thing?
Also, is there a limit for how many arms/bows this guy could wield?
Any help will be appreciated.

Well, it probably won't be as effective as a charging pouncer, just because there are very few ways to boost ranged damage for an eidolon, while melee damage is very easy to boost. Remember that an eidolon's limbs are limited by its HD chart as well.

Overall, I think it's a very cool idea though. I have the mental picture of a slightly alien Hindu archer goddess summoned to do battle =)
