Pros and cons[edit | edit source]


  • Devastating sustained single target DPS, achieved by simply spamming your piercing shot at the enemy.
  • Can counter healing to some extent.
  • One of the better 1v1 classes, with its massive singletarget dps. It can easily take care of mages, and most other classes if played correctly.
  • Archer's leech arrow is the sole ability that can make all natural regen and healing abilities next to useless. This prevent mages from healing inside their iceblock, Warriors taunt heal is reduced, and all of shamans heal abilities are also reduced. Take advantage of this and slaw down as much damage as you can, as it only lasts for a short period of time.
  • All of Archer's spells are instant cast.


  • Doesn't have any crowd control (slow, stun etc.)
  • Sprint is a good skill, but can be countered by slows (your sprint speed also decreases while slowed). This and not having a slow yourself, makes you not very good at running away
  • The heal from your leaching arrow is a one-shot skill unlike the others who have HoT's. This makes the Archer the worst class at taking damage, even worse than the Mage.
  • Due to all the cons listed above, the Archer is easy prey to a group of enemies, it will quickly die to all the damage and will be slowed to a halt.

Farming/Grinding Strategies[edit | edit source]

Archers can quickly aggravate multiple monsters at once using the multi-hitter move: Volley. After that, the archer can either use others to aid itself, heal itself from constant attack with Leeching Arrow, or keep using Piercing Shot until Volley is usable again, archer runs out of mana, or the Monsters die. Leech on the monsters' health to heal yours (similar to Shaman ability 2 or the move "absorb" from other games), which makes your time away from the spawn much longer. The archers volley does absurd damage so when you have multiple warriors on you can collect a lot of monsters which will prevent warriors from using taunt because taunt attracts monster then you just hit them with piercing because they also have powerful armor and then once they are all at 200- health just volley them and they all die this works with every class.
