Hi, i got back to the game during holidays and since i managed to claim past year's free FF slot, i thought i would upgrade one of my old alts (Marksman AT)

He's an archer superhero in the vein of Green Arrow

    It looks mostly fine as is. Since it's not on the Planner atm, I assume that you want to take the Frail Armor adv on Desperate Shot (instead of NttG) for another debuff. I may also pass on the Disorient adv on Straight Shot and get R2 and/or USB Arrow on it instead. Smoke Bomb is a fine AoE threat wipe, though you'll have to be w/in 50ft of the mobs for it to work (could get a 100ft threat wipe instead, though they are all single-target). You could also trade BCR for Conviction, but either one works as an extra heal. Concentration can also work well as the toggle/form, though it doesn't scale w/ Dex (Chilled Form does) so I assume that Int is your main stat here (which also scales up the EU). You could also consider the AoE Root adv on Storm of Arrows, though R3 is fine for it too. Lastly, Targeting Comp is prob the strongest dps passive for you here, so I'd likely keep that.

    Thanks Flow for the reply, i haven't played the game for a while and didn't know about the Frail Armor Adv; and yes, i built arount INT, i even thought of making it primary but DEX specs and mastery felt like a more solid choice

    Here's the revamped version i guess

    Yea, although Int PSS is a potentially good option w/ Detect Vuln and Expertise, Dex PSS is the strong overall dps choice, so it's fine to keep the SS setup as is. Knowing that you can't pick Frail Armor on the Planner, the edit looks okay, though I'd prob just get R2 on Resurgence (since R3 is more likely to have wasted over-healing).
