Ideas for a Duelist Archer

Has anyone thought of a duelist archer?
it may seem like a waste of time, cause if you want an archer than just go with the ranger.
however one particular build has peeked my interest, merely for it's uniqueness.

Spoiler


it makes good use of the fury bolts near by, & surrounding bow passives.

I then went to pick up master Fletcher & surrounding nodes, and then headed east to get heavy draw & deadly draw.
I think this build might be lacking in hp, so I headed south west and picked up Golems Blood & surrounding nodes, but this could be avoided if your evasion & armor is great.
Armor can easily be supplemented with Granite Flasks, and Sin Trek Stealth Boots if you can get them.

As you can see I went north aswell to get more attack speed and the all important Iron Grip.

All in all, this is a high evasion & high attack speed build that could use much more DPS as it's lacking, so that's where alot of your Gear will have to supplement.

After all this is an experimental build, so let me guys know what you think & where it could improve. Thx. ^_^

one thing to mention this build is destroyed since open beta, but I'm still inquiring into it, because it really is a fun build.

I'd say you may need to pick up more int just to run auras and such and since you have alot of dex dont worry about picking up that extra 20 accuracy(dex increases your accuracy) and get arrow dodging which is a very good passive.

Im also interested in playiing a bow duelist here is my theoretical build

Yea I wanted to try something different and it's working pretty well so far. I figured I'd need to find some pretty good +Life/Life Regen gear and some life leech later on when I grab Blood Magic.

Here's and updated version of my skill tree:


I swapped out Iron Grip because well it's just too far up the tree and figured it would be better to grab some some more Armor, but I might respec the armor nodes when I get near end game to see where else it would be to be more effective.
