Archer

Backstory

      Hunters who hunt for food usually show talent with a bow. Hunters get scouted to be trained to be come Archers for war. As the demand for archers grew more, barracks in cities and settlements began training hunters into Archers at a more rapid pace. Hunters in training are required to fire their bow at least 1,000 times through a small ring at 30 meters before being called an Archer. The usage of ranged weapons becomes an Art that is highly desired everywhere. Archers after finishing training either return to their normal life as a reservist or begin their adventure in search of those who wish to utilize their talents.

Class Mechanics

      Archers can maintain consistently high damage from far away. Archers generate focus from Quick Draw and Normal Draw. Then spending focus use Full Draws that activate power attack combos. To maximumize damage, Archers may utillize Eagle Eye to increase damage, accuracy and gain focus. Archers also have some slows and roots to use to get away from a target close to the Archer. Windrunning is also great for getting out of telegraphed attacks or kiting. Archer's bows deal piercing damage which inflicts Punctured Defense. Archers great to have in parties due to their ability to deal damage is so high.
