Pros and cons[edit | edit source]

Pros:

  • 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.

Cons:

  • 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
  • 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: Poison Arrows
