Hey folks, apologies if this comes across as an obvious newbie thing, but I can't seem to find an up-to-date Archer guide anywhere. Only ones I can find are multiple years old and seem to reference skills that no longer exist.

Does such a thing exist? Or would it be better for me to simply bombard this thread with random questions as I have them? (And I do indeed have them.)

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, I'll clean that guide up and make a proper post in a day or so. All you REALLY need to know is that Trueshot, Headshot, and Piercing ammunition are completely bonkers.

That's a good summary out there. Some considerations on me playing archers though:

Intuitive shots can - up escape and render you a free death on difficult situations, thats why i just put one point on it and deactivate it on late game. Ideally though, you probably want to keep it activated and deactivate it when you use escape. Since i'm too lazy for that, i keep it deactivated.

Head shot seems to miss a LOT with me. I dont know why that happens, if it is a bug or whatever... i noticed it frequently happens when the enemy moves. I would appreciate other players input about this!

The type of ammunition really depends on what type of damage you are dealing with. Normally you will deal physical and thus piercing is indeed better. However, if you are using another damage type of arrows, venomous can be superior IMO.

Its worth maxing out Steady shot early if nothing else, just for the increased mark chance. The increased damage is just a bonus.

Thanks much, gang. Nice to see some good advice. Any suggestions about good stats/points of emphasis/things to aim for (no pun intended) on bows and quivers?

(I get the feeling that sling/shield archers are very niche, so I'm just focusing on the above. Happy to be corrected.)

Do you like getting hit by war hounds and ritches? Do you like getting put to sleep? Do you like being fearscaped? Do you like having Inner Demons used on you?

You don't?

Well if your weapon has range 9, you have 100% immunity to all of those things, and many other things as well.

This, by the way, is why Archer rares are the only thing that have a chance to kill you as new Archer. Melee classes are disarmed, magic classes are silenced, and mind classes have range 7. Called Shots unfortunately isn't instant, so Archer rares will have time to OHKO you with Headshot before they are disarmed.

PS If you are marked by a rare, assume you will die if you don't leave the rare's LOS within about half a turn. "Fun"

I made some tests with headshott and i can confirm now that at least mine is kinda bugged. If i use the hotkey it almost never misses, if i use the mouse click to activate the talent, it misses a lot. Dunno why, but thats happening with me.
