How do you/your DM feel about spellcasting or psionics? Do you want to shoot stuff with a bow? Fight with two weapons? What books do you have available?

Well dm dosent care about any type of stuff we use as long as we can show were we found it at. I want to be ranged fighting cuz friend is melee.

Books I own

If you mean an archery PrC, look into Deepwood Sniper (Masters of the Wilds), and Justice of Weald and Woe (Champions of Ruin).

Hmmm I am trying to keep it in 3.5 just so people know.

Ooh. Not arcane archer. :smalltongue:

Umm, there's some fun stuff, but Ranger/Fighter works okay.

Ranger/Cleric might be fun, and buy a quiver of spellstoring arrows. Full BAB and full cleric casting? Why not?

I'm about to go to bed and am not willing to search for my books right now. So here's a quick idea:

Scout (CAd) 3/Ranger 6/Scout 6//Combat Wizard (UA) 4/Rogue 1/Unseen Seer (CM) 10

1:Point Blank Shot
1H:Extend Spell
1W:Precise Shot
3:Knowledge Devotion (CCh)
5R:Rapid Shot
6:Practiced Spellcaster (CAr)
9:Greater Manyshot (EPH)
10S:Swift Hunter (CSc)
12:Quicken Spell
14S:Improved Skirmish (CSc)
15:Persistant Spell (CAr)

Persist Cloud of Knives and Hunter's Eye (both from PHB2).
The result is:

BAB +12/+7/+2
d8 HD
8d6 Skirmish
11d6 Sneak Attack
CL 15 (18 for Divinations)
All-around good saves (loses one level of Good Will progression)

I would take variants to ditch the dead-end Ranger spellcasting and Animal Companion, but I don't think any variants are great enough to make too big of a difference.

Ranger 15//Wizard 5/ Incantarix 10

If you go gestalt it is nigh required that you have a caster of some type on 1 side. Psion might be a good choice instead of wizard though.

You might consider Pyschic Warrior as an alternative to Fighter. Combined with Ranger, you'll still have a bunch of feats and full BAB. You'll want to move one of your high scores to Wisdom if you go this route.

Alternately, Scout//Fighter has plenty of Ranger flavor to it. Makes you even more of a skillmonkey, which I assume is the point of high Int. I think the Greater Manyshot feat makes this build.

Is there a better bow then just the compact bow?

Do you mean Composite Bow? If you do, that would be a wise choice due to how it would allow you to use your Str mod for some extra damage. I'd say Psion would be a better choice then Wizard (I don't think they suffer from Arcan Spell Failure).
