Archers leave behind a trail of victims that look like pincushions—many dead before they knew what hit them. An archer's arrows effortlessly punch through enemy armor, consume foes in fiery energy, and trap them so they can't even flee!
If you like having a tool for every job, the archer is the class for you . . . especially if you like tools that explode, penetrate armor, trap enemies in spiderwebs, or transform into radiant energy. The archer is a class that rewards clever tactics, knowing the right countermeasure for every threat, and thinking two steps ahead of your enemy.
Archers wear light armor so they can take advantage of their speed and mobility. Their weapon is a bow, of course, but it's the broad range of arcane arrows that make the class: piercing arrows, exploding arrows, rapid-fire arrows, poison arrows, arrows that hit multiple enemies in one shot, and more.
Archers also have escape skills to avoid taking damage, and an array of traps that immobilize, poison, or just plain explode their enemies. Enemies often try to rush an archer, and having an array of traps comes in handy to punish them for such unimaginative tactics. There's even a web arrow to catch and immobilize foes who try to escape and run for help.
Archers deal death from afar. They excel at firing from beyond a foe's retaliation range, and using their escape moves to stay there. They can take the high ground for a better view of the overall battle, pick off foes who flee for help, and deal out damage without pulling aggro from the tanks.
