Seems Mages do everything they can except better.

For flyers since magic on Pegasus Knights generally doesn't work as well.

In this game? None because they aren't named Shinon or Rolf.
Mmm, this jerked chicken is good. I think I'll have Fry's lower horn jerked.

Archers are a niche role, if the map has a lot of fliers then use them, if not.. then don't.
Xenoblade is the spiritual successor of FF12.
999 and Zero Escape both deserve are Visual Novels to DIE for.

Well, one thing is that while wind magic is good against fliers, Pegasus Knights have high resistance, so that's where Archers come into play.

Archers are pretty much the physical version of mages
Someone has high resistance but low defense - Archer

There is none, and it's even worse because Hit is very easy to 100 in this game.

Archers are typically bad in FE, and FE10 Shinon is the only exception I know of.

Their supposed uses:

- Operate Ballistae to attack across the map (which do not exist in many games)

- Attack from 3 squares away with (or without, as in FE10 Shinon's case) a longbow (unfortunately unreliable because longbows have low Mt and are hard to get)

- Kill fliers in games where magic users can't destroy them easily with Wind magic (rare)
