Superkluege Paralyze and Terror Arrow Build (U62)
Through U62 Adjusted Paralyze/Terror Arrow Build:
Close to no fail Paralyze and Fear DC
High DPS with High Wisdom Score
Warning - Heroic can be an issue due to IPS being taken later (Ranger lvl 11 happens at character lvl 18).

Suggested Race: Deep Gnome for height and wisdom (any wisdom based race ok)

Starting Stats (+8 Stats):
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.

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.
Update pending as all the stats were nerfed u49. Also, with update 51 there is a feat reconfiguration in epic.
Updated for u51
Pending list of Destiny Trees
Update is good through u62
