Archer Guide

Guide Introduction

Heya, few words before you start
It's Kopek, creator of vocation guides on wiki.

Keep in mind I created these having unexperienced players in mind, under level 200.
These guides are not made to show all or even the best possibilities out there.
I tried to show a path that is both comfortable and easy to follow for a newcomer.
The game has much more to offer than stuff listed below, go explore and have fun!

General Information

Vocation Choice
Archer is a distance vocation with both good physical and magic abillities.

Even that you should keep your distance, the health pool is big enough to not be scared of being hit by strong monsters.

Best choice for new players, especially for these with solo playstyle.

Vocation Statistics
Each level up Archer gains:

• 10 health points
• 15 mana points
• 20 oz. capacity

Health regeneration: 1 hp per 8 sec
After Promotion: 1 hp per 4 sec
Mana regeneration: 1 mana per 4 sec
After Promotion: 1 mana per 3 sec

Pros and Cons
Pros

• Double the health and capacity gain per level compared to other distance vocations.
• Access to Ultimate Healing spell, that can be put on hotkey.
• Abillity to solo most of the game content.
• Elemental DoT weapons that makes hunting on lower levels fast and cheap.

Cons

• Requires heavy ammunition to shoot.
• Spears require picking them up after each hit.
• Lesser rune damage than the magic vocations.
• No offensive spells.


Tips

First Promotion Benefits

Upon promotion, your character receives a new title depending on your vocation:

  • Archers become 'Royal Archers'.

Upgraded Title

Upon receiving the second promotion, your character receives a new title depending on your vocation:

  • Royal Archers become 'Master Archers'.



"If you want to know more about promotion: Promotion."

Tips

• Buy Promotion as fast as you can afford it.
• Buy Flaming Bow as fast as you can afford them.
• Switching between elemental DoT (Damage over Time) bows is a great way to boost your experience for free. (example - Poisoned Bow, Flaming Bow)
• Use Conjure Explosive Arrows Spell to burn mana, easy way for AFK profit.
• Before you have met requirements for Explosive Arrows (magic level 10) Conjure Arrow is a great spell that will help you make your hunts longer.
• Get yourself a Vampire Shield or Demon Shield in case you get trapped, distance weapons don't have any defence.
Golden Quiver or regular Quiver are huge quality of life upgrades.
