Class Overview


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, or trap enemies in magical spider webs! In battle, archers leave a trail of victims that look like pincushions—many dead before they knew what hit them. Playing an archer rewards you for using clever tactics and thinking two steps ahead of your enemy.


An archer strikes hard, fast, and from far off. Although their arrows diversify as they level up, if you're going to have just one trick, putting a hole in someone's head before they see you is a good one.


Archers poison, stun, trap, and damage their targets, giving them advantages in any encounter.

Armor: Light

Archers wear leather armor for speed and mobility. Those who fight and run away need less healing at the end of the day.

Weapon: Bow

Archers use bows, 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.
