U55 Adjusted Paralyze/Terror Arrow Build:

12 Ranger / 6 Fighter / 2 Monk - Wisdom Based Archer Lawful Neutral

Currently Deep Gnome

Paralyze DC: Base (20 + 39 wis mod + 35 Enchant DC) = 94

Progression is important (tougher in heroic due to requirements):  4x Ranger, 2 x Monk (save precision and Zen Archery for monk lives), then mix in fighter and ranger (I did not pay attention) to maximize feat selection.

19 Fighter

20 Ranger



3 Weapon Focus Ranged

6 Adept of Forms

6 Precision (Martial Arts Feat)

7 Power Crit

9 IC Ranged

9 Enchantment Focus

12 Weapon Spec Ranged

12 Master of Forms

15 Empower Healing (Good place to add IPS then swap out before lvl 18)

18 Grand Master of Forms

19 Weapon Focus Thrown

21 Combat Archery

22 Holy Strike

24 Overwhelming Critical

25 Doubleshot

27 Watchful Eye

Another version would be running Fury of the Wild ED.  No changes to the build beyond ED choices.  Wisdom does drop some as well as ranged power, but you get more DPS for sure with more frequent Fury shots.

Looks like I messed up the progression.  I have fixed above, but instead of 7-8 fighter, you need to go 7 fighter, 8 ranger, 9 fighter so you can take IC ranged at lvl 9 with fighter feat and enchantment focus as normal feat.

Fixed progression to be able to get manyshot quicker.  Still will need to do a feat swap if you want IPS earlier... which I usually do.

I am currently in Deep Gnome and liking it more than I liked other races including what I thought would be end build of Aasimar Scourge.  You get wisdom in the cores as well as being short to hit more things with IPS targeting.  The passive choices are nice bonus type things like saves and wand/scroll power.  The key here is being short to utilize IPS more effectively.

This remained unchanged for U50.  Horizon Walker is a good dps build, but there is not much there for a paralyze build.  At least nothing worth giving up to obtain.
