    Just a quick cosplay build that some of you may enjoy.

    Would be used either as a Forest Hunter or occasional invasions.
    Also Cloranthy ring is being utilised to help always maintain distance along with the Darkwood Grain ring.
    Health boosted to high value to compensate lack of poise.

    I approve of your build alot man. Its not what i typically do but i could see myself making one and enjoying it. I would probably make the physique very slim on the character and then throw in some green like Armor of the sun. Solaires helm also has that really neat feather on it so if you ever get tired of pharis' hat, give the feather a try.

    Yeah looks reaaally out of my comfort zone but I'm keen to try it out and see what I can do. I've always had a fascination with Robin Hood for some reason so really felt the need to cosplay him, haha.

    A few things.

    1.) All cosplays realism is greatly diminished when they are glowing bright green, or have resin on their blade. So attempt to avoid items, and rings like that.

    2.) I think that Robin Hood would be the type to use a rapier or a curved sword, specifically the Scimitar. This will make it so the only thing you are doing isn't flip back and shoot arrows, then occasionally roll-bs with the dagger.

    3.) Pretty much just stick to your Pharis bow unless you are making it quality. Or willing to go with less damage.

    4.) And here is one version that I decided to make, though I had plenty of ideas for different versions.  http://mmdks.com/3i69
    Leo ring will make that Rapier and bow hurt. A lot. And giant gauntlets for some high defense and at least some poise. Might only want 9 so you aren't stunned by two-handed rapiers, because they will ruin any attempt at you wanting to shoot an arrow at them.

    I am a big fan of cosplays and use them all the time, specifically a V for Vendetta one. I find many of them to be a lot more flexible then one would think, and most you can easily make at level 99, even with some stats to spare.

    Thanks for the ideas! The idea behind different bows was just to cover different ranges basically. Hunting from far in the forest with Pharis, though doing most of the work with Shortbow. Crossbow was just for flavour.

    Also curved swords take away from the role play imo, since they're not typically associated with the character or just western Europe in general. Dagger is a sidearm all archers would typically have so I stuck with that. Could swap for Ricard's occasionally too though.

    Also didn't realise Leo ring affected bows so I'll try it out!

    Robin Hood also was a former soldier in the King's army during the crusades, he was an excellent shot, and a good swordsman, I would recommend a straight sword, and there has been a show where is used a curved blade like the scimitar, so you could pull off having a sword in there.
