I'm doing some research on google about tips for the bow-only challenge I want to take.

One thing I can't find though is if a divine bow will prevent skeletons from reviving. Anyone knows this?

Yes, Divine Bows prevents the skeletons from re-assembling.
This was already tested in the Catacombs. Though I'm not sure if this also
works with crossbows.

Hmm... tc are you going for pure bow only, like without support spell e.g. hidden body, aura decoy? For catacomb the first few necromancer are quite exposed so it is easier to snipe kill them firstly before going more in depth.

Haven't thought about these spells before, good idea

Figured he'd probably use the fog ring

One of them is Hawk Ring and the other is most like Ring of Favor and Protection.

For a real bow only run challenge, go with the Dragonslayer Bow :)

From what I've seen on YouTube with bow-only runs, the Divine Bow at 5 does barely any damage on skeletons like maybe 20-25 damage per arrow. Either the Composite Bow or Short Bow at 15 does a lot more. On top of that, so many skeletons have shields that block damage. Strats like leading skeletons to fall in the Catacombs will keep them killed, you know when you get the souls. Necromancers can be taken out at a distance.

For Nito, best strat seems to be just avoiding the skeletons and focus down Nito, circling away so his AOE takes them out for a short time.

Large bows have too long a draw time to avoid getting hit while in the attack animation.

Best Nito strat is fog+slumbering distance cheese.
