I lost few archers as an enemy used "shields wall", so I couldn't get through. Is there any solution?

I ran into this last weekend! I started my first Archer on Nightmare and every time I ran into an enemy with shield wall, that was it, they weren't dying.

The solution I found was to just leave. I went and did other dungeons and came back more powerful.

Shield Wall adds a lot of defense and armor. Defense is counteracted by Accuracy, and armor by armor penetration or just having high damage.

You shouldn't have problems with shield wall enemies if your archer is doing enough damage: pump dex and str to maximize physical power, get the most damaging ammo you can find: shop around Zigur and New Hope for Tier 3 ammo. Raw damage is best, but debuffs that cause healing reduction (poison or wound) are good too for taking down hard targets. Also look for good bows - +physical damage, long range, or nasty procs. Hopefully you can either get some really nice ammo, or a really nice bow. You might get both. You might have to resort to slings: sometimes you can get range 10 slings and really nice shot in the shops, but in the long run it's not a good fit for an archer so it's just until you find some good arrows.
