Cold-blooded and methodical, always prepared to consider every scenario. Archers are not mere fighters who draw their swords jumping into a fight without a moment of hesitation. On the contrary, Archers tend to fight on their own terms. They set the pace of the fight, stopping monsters at their tracks if needed and leading them right into the traps to wipe down entire waves of enemies without combat. Indeed, they do not need to face their opponents head to head as their superior hunting skills allow them to hit a beast right between the eyes before it can even notice being watched.

The general concept of the Archer class
Archers, unlike other classes available in the game, can keep high damage constantly through the quick attacks. They are also better than other classes in controlling the fights through the wide variety of utility at their disposal. Stuns, snares, and traps are the primary tools they can use to save their teammates or to doom their enemies. These are especially handy considering how low of a defense Archers have. Their lack of survivability is compensated by excellent utility toolkit, high avoidance, and an extended range of attacks. One attack can be fatal for an Archer, so they will always keep the distance.

As an Archer, you have two main ways of developing your character. Although you might combine all skills that you like, it will most likely be more beneficial for you to stick with one playstyle described below. It is always better to specialize in one thing than to combine many, which makes your character only average on everything. These are two choices that you can select from.
The first path is where you select the abilities that deal high amounts of damage based on your weapon attack and the skills that you have. Because of that, you want to choose the crossbow which has a slower attack speed but better damage ratio than other ranged weapons. Even though you will hit enemies at a very slow pace, you will have powerful spells in your toolkit to supplement the damage needed for taking down monsters. In this path, you want to choose spells like Double Shot, Falcon Invested, Falcon Feather, and Piercing Shot.
It is the path that you want to take if you are interested in improving your ability to deal high amounts of sustained damage. You won’t have as high burst damage as with Spell build, but you will be better at taking down bosses and monsters with high health. In this one, you want to choose a Bow over a Crossbow as it has a higher attack speed, which will synergize well with Critical Attack spell and other buffs. It is also what you will be aiming form in terms of ability choices. You want to have as many buffs as possible as they will supplement your auto attacks. Make sure to invest in Critical Attack, Accurate Shot, Vampire Shot, Precision, Speed Shot, and Multishoot.
How to train skills
Similarly to melee classes, Archers can improve their skills by combat. If you struggle with damage dealing, you might need to train on easier monsters. Equip the worst weapon that you have and take the cheapest arrows that you can get. Fight against monsters with high health pool that you can hit, but that won’t be able to hurt you too much. With every hit, you will gain experience in your ranged skills. It is also wise to go against monsters that drop food since when you are well-fed, you can cast Double Regeneration spell. Under its effect, you can use Casting Arrow - it will give you 50 Arrows for every cast utterly free of charge, making your training much less costly.
Archer is one of the most versatile classes in the game, allowing him to be great at both single target and area damage. On top of that, he has a wide variety of tools that can slow down his enemies and buff himself during combat. The downside to that is that he has to deal with ammunition management and low defense issues.
