What it is supposed to be: KILL FLIERS and Attack at range

What it actually is: Breakfast enemy with joke attack and speed for your team, 9 times out of 10. Pair Up fodder. Cool with Galeforce

They were useful in other games. Here? Not so much.

Possibly the Kellam of the FE:A boards. But no one notices enough to make it official...

This is one of few games where Archers are pretty cool

Only FE12 beat this, and maybe FE11 because both those game's Archer are extremely useful

Really? But archers are best in bottlenecks.

And this game has like 4 bottlenecks.

Pair Up and solid amount of numbers of fliers
Rescue -> Dancer
The fact that you can fix support easilly

Those helps

Obviously thats not at the level of FE12, where A LOT of the unit on your team are better off as a Sniper(Minerva being the best example)

Problem is that your only Archer is Virion, and while Virion has amazing availability and good growths his bases are pretty horrid.

Meanwhile, the game just THROWS mages at you.

However, due to the tendency for enemy reinforcements to include fliers and the tendency for all bow using classes to have high skill I think they are a bit underrated actually.

It becomes clear who is avoiding bow users when players have to make huge efforts to complete Tiki's recruitment chapter in particular.

I was pretty surprised when my no second seal Virion who hadn't even reached level 10 yet was still able to one round KO all of the fliers.

They are awful, if you don't know how to utilize them.

I see Noire as more or less post-game due to availability. I didn't forget her, I sort of excluded her TBH. <_<

But yeah, her mother being Tharja doesn't help her as an actual Archer much.
