I never use them! I find that their lack of being able to counter attack at short range is very frustrating. I only use them until I get my first mage, then I either kill them or have them stay in the back of my party and never use them until endgame.
My point is, can someone show me why archers are good? --- - Taro Tanaka signing out Black 2 FC: 4170-2789-5384
Ok, so why not use a swordsmaster for their high crit rate?
Because people need excuses to make particular classes look good. Archers were actually really good in RD; endgame allowed them to attack 1-3 range with crazy mount but thats about it. --- If ignorance is bliss, you must be orgasmic~ PSN: ScarletDevilI( L [undercase] + i [uppercase] )
Because one, Snipers generally have more strength in my experience, so they kill things without needing to crit. And two, they are usually a bit more durable, so even if they are caught in combat they don't fall apart if they don't dodge every hit, and three, they hit without being dounter attacked themselves, which is abig plus for me, especially with the Longbow. --- What is Truth?
