Are you talking about shooting for TP or a melee TP set that includes the bow?

Basically this.

If you really want to have a ranged set, I do for the rare occasions when I'm weakened and a mob isn't very evasive, just pile on all the ranged accuracy you can. Chances are you're going to need it.

The reason why I asked was because my LS wants me to bow as a Samurai during the Yorcia Weald Delve a few weeks ago, but since my Archery isn't capped and I do not have a Ranged tp set I wasn't able to go.

This makes 0 sense considering the boss is weak to slashing.

Your LS is full of retards.

Time to bail and find one that actually knows what they are doing.

Only reason to have a Cibitshavore equipped is for Apex Arrow on mobs weak to piercing, and for the STP and STR bonus it gives for WS and TP phases.

Basically, if you're planning on shooting for TP, level ranger.

If you want to exploit mobs' piercing/ranged weaknesses, Apex with Cibit is workable, but not great. Namas has a pretty hefty Racc bonus and a more workable STR mod, which makes Yoichi far better for actual ranged damage.

For all other general SAMery, Cibit R15C is the best ranged slot.

They didn't want you to shoot for TP then; they wanted you to spam apex when you built TP up. If they did want you to shoot for TP then lolz.

Sorry if this post seems not to help you but it is really to help you. You shouldn't be shooting for TP on SAM unless you're weakened and just trying to help DPS a lil bit.
