Does anyone else hate archers?

#1Taro_TanakaPosted 1/26/2013 10:00:09 AM
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?

Snipers are one of the best class in the game. High accuracy, high evasion, high stat caps, bows are great in general, longbow with triple range.

A good sniper with maxed out supports will be unkillable.

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.

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.

if you worry about snipers getting attacked by melee then you are playing the sniper wrong
