If I want to play as an Arcane Character that infuses his arrows with magical power, how do I do it according to the RAW in a way that I'll feel the closest from the old Arcane Archer prestige class' flavour?
By that, I mean, being primarily an archer, but one who has arcane knowledge which he uses to infuse arrows with arcane spells/powers. It is supposed to combine martial abilities with arcane study, making you feel exactly like someone who studied magic but also can shoot arrows like no one else. They should also primarily pack a punch on their own, they should not be a support character.
I tried the ranged weapon bard, but still it doesn't feel much like what it should be. Specially using charisma. And I also tried the sorcerer, class that have the same ability problem, but then it's not like I'm actually using arrows anyway. The bow makes actually no difference. The major problem is using charisma and, going with sorcerer, not even using arrows since all the Sorcerer Class Powers are used with implements. And in the end, the Wizard doesn't support the Arrow Shooting side of the Arcane Archer.
Is there a proper way?
