This game is not meant to be played as you wish. Archer is weak - except you get endgame items and the trial. 1h+Shield, pistol/1h+catalyst and 2h are now in a competion for the best endgamebuild.

bow counts as 2h weapon, so a 2h melee build is working well with a bow.

At your level i went for 100k HP and then it was easy. Then i found the trial and it was fun. In 187 i lack of good bow-build its and i die a lot. Pistol build need occult damage - i dont have. So the best way was to go with 1h melee + catalyst.

I want to play archer, but i will have to wait for the best bow items or a new patch.

There are no builds, just go full ailments like everybody else. At least until there are some balance patches available.

A full DoT ailment build using a bow certainly seems to be possible, i started leveling a new character for exactly that. My plan is to apply the 4 DoTs with autoturret, wailing arrows, phantom blades + evasion, and gunslinger's brand as my main spender. Combine them with stasis aether gems for the which time cannot heal node, and also the dire juncture + fatal pact + frenzied blows + rage per hit taken nodes combo (which i just read about earlier), and i'm hoping that i might finally have made a strong build of my own that isn't a copy + paste from some streamer or youtuber or whatever.
Either that, or i'll try using the infi-rage combo with the augmented ammunition modifier for gunslinger's brand and find out if that one skill is enough, without all of those other bow ones.

I don't understand why people google and copy builds tbh, experimenting and discovering fun ones is where half of the enjoyment is i.m.o.

I started one week later so i was watching: https://youtu.be/li-cQ1_RV0A?t=1

There are several videos explaining his playstyle.

You can try and test new builds and after 1-3 days you are done planing and you can play - till the next patch which will change everything.

Most of my items are crafted. There is almost no good drop.

but "At your level i went for 100k HP " you had 100k hp on Archer?

I died every 2nd mob and then i went for 100k and didnt die for a few levels. Now on 187 you will still die on some boss spells.

I never found a engame bow. Still stuck on my 330 dps bow, but i found a few 460+ dps pistols (+100dps with gems).
