Why use archers when mages have wind magic?

I am fully aware that my username is stupid.
In my defense, I made it when I was 14. I, too, was pretty stupid back then.

sniper has better evade, longbow, better stat caps. even more relevant in FE6-FE9 where an A/B rank supported sniper was unkillable.

Mages shouldn't be tanking anyway, Snipers can't hit at 1 range, enemies typically have higher def than res and those with high res are weak to wind magic, and Avatar can use Magic right off the bat while you don't get a decent archer for the entire game without reclassing. This is FE13, not FE6-9.

Archery stuff are only good in FE4, FE5 Dagda and MAYBE Selfina, FE6 Shin, FE7 Louise, FE7 Geitz, FE8 Innes, FE10 Shinon, FE11 and FE12



Because lets face it, Archers sucked. Snipers at least has stats

Also Artilerry in Advance Wars has stats and do damage

Archer in FE generally does joke damage and has no stats

sniper has better evade,


Except when they don't. I mean, it's like, in this game, where at caps Sage has more evade than Sniper. Crazy, isn't it?

longbow,


Granted, but that only beats other physical weapons on player phase in specific situations. It also helps when longbows aren't crud weapons. Mire and the like exist for mages and completely outclass longbows.


better stat caps.

I'd argue Sage crushes Sniper is terms of caps in this game.


even more relevant in FE6-FE9 where an A/B rank supported sniper was unkillable.



Not only is anyone with a bunch of levels and full supports hard to kill, but arguing that raising a terrible to get a unit that doesn't particularly do anything better than another unit is poor form.
