View Full Version : worth playing of archer ?

September 1st, 2015, 08:19 PM
as the title of the topic already says , want to know if it is worth investing the character or not.

help me please.

September 1st, 2015, 08:48 PM

September 1st, 2015, 08:53 PM
seriously, do not want to waste time with a bad class, who knows please tell me why there is not worth the silent shame class now that I'm low level

Only level an Archer as a second character. Make your first character a Melee. Or if you prefer range you still have the Atalanta, which is far superior than Archer.

and here I thought archer here was balanced with od other characters

September 2nd, 2015, 09:49 AM
ATM I admit It is not worth to play Archer as a main character
However, Archer is still a wonderful character if you place her as a secondary char.

With the AOE stun skill and FON, your role is always good in pt

at least will hope to improve on it yet? or classes balancing already over?

September 3rd, 2015, 06:34 PM
NO! Unfortunately, after the re-balances, archers are almost completely useless. Terrible damage, can't tank (obviously), only good support skill is FON. My 102 archer is in retirement :'(

A good game should make players feel comfortable with what they like to play :)

September 3rd, 2015, 10:53 PM
The best thing i can say is, play what u want, archers deal lower damage compared to melee, but they have their pet to tank ( few hits) and a skill that causes stun in the monsters, so......

PT is a grinding game, so in the long run the most important thing is having fun with your character or u will want to quit. Every character has their pos and cons, but in the end, the majority of people will play what they want to. If it wasn't like this everybody were going to be playing pike and fs.

And, this can be the situation by now, but it's going toget fixed, no one knows when but it will.

Every class has their function in this game, yedang messed with this, but i think this gonna be fixed in the end or this game will lost any sense.

Sorry for bad english, my head ir bursting here, i'm kind sick

I have been at LVL 111 for awhile. I don't prioritize grinding but it's easy when you've got a full party on high maps. Let's not forget that spending on SP is a must when trying to reach higher levels.

I'm playing pike but without leaving aside my archer, there will playing with them, in the end decide which I will want to continue:] I thank the poster for me to help.

September 5th, 2015, 09:43 AM
I want to clarify what it is for example one 116 kills archer up in the same or approximately the same as a pike, 116 fighter, why kill or care for pvp.

Hello Thomas, i found some videos on youtube of some pikes and archers leveling but, i don't know their attack pow so it's not 100%.Anyway, pikeman does more damage than archer, but he lose abs and dies easy, on the other side, archer deal lower damage but has a pet to tank and a skill that stun for 12 seconds so the mobs don't even move.

These videos do not help at all because they are the Brazilian Priston, I played it and archer video is even mine, as I said it is the worst priston that has all desbanleceado then serves not as a basis for this we play. I'm still in waiting to see if the up archer kills at least like a pike, fighter or mechanical

September 6th, 2015, 02:01 AM
Only 2 videos are from bpt and i identified these

September 6th, 2015, 06:34 AM
Yes, but even these others were made in 2014 so do not have to know them as the archer in this game today, to not be a high level archer make a demonstration video and post it here for us

In parties, I don't bother try to kill the mobs when I got melee killing them in just seconds. What I contribute to the party is the buffs (Force of Nature) and Stun (Evade Shot) which increases killing effectiveness of the team. I admit that my Archer (LVL 111 Str Build) cannot kill fast enough even if I added Mana Reduce and Mana Recharge and other Item Shop buffs.

I think that if one is going to play an archer, he should do so thinking about the future, bacause in the future they are going to be fixed, don't know when but they will. So i think it would be more like and investment, leveling one now while u wait for the fix where u probably will already have a good lvl. Because atm they are weaker than melee.

The thing about archers is not that they are a weak class, their tier 5 is weak, this is the fix she needs to match the others.

Now we have MultiPT, just think outside of the box
Play Archer and another character, so you can solve the dmg issue of Archer.

Nowadays, many players play several char to support each others.

September 8th, 2015, 02:20 AM
i agree with you Zoooa.. what really matters is: are you having fun playing your char?
archer is still a fun class

i'm 118 and rely heavily on sl parties for levelling
generally ppl are happy to have an archer in their party
but you will be in a supporting role

Yes, i can solo in sl no problem with evade shot and wa and doggie but it's slow
i can finish dq in 2 - 2½ hours solo OR can finish in 20 mins in a good pt

working on a 2nd char :XD:

Combine MultiPT and ALT+Tab and you can play more characters. We have the support characters where we move to their PT window and cast their buffs. But when I combined playing Priestess and Assassin what I did was the PRS kept casting Chain Lightning via shift + right click then I'd switch back to my ASSA and kill mobs all around. When I notice that the PRS stopped casting her skill, I switch back and do it again. It made grinding intense since you had to watch out for both your characters' life. You can try other character combinations to speed up gaining exp.

what I watch is that in Kpt the archers kill very well, I saw a new map of the videos that Yd launched and the archer was killing quickly.

September 9th, 2015, 09:17 AM
I plan to play 1 someday :)

September 10th, 2015, 05:57 AM
is the way I up two characters even simultaneously and hope to be improved archer

September 11th, 2015, 06:10 PM
someone can tell if you have any forecasting a continuation of balance?

September 17th, 2015, 07:03 AM
:'( please :'(

Shooting Mastery 40% to 48%
Thunder Roop:
- Shorten animation (mean faster skill casting)
- 2 hit

Comparing with Ata, Archer still kill slower. However, with the AOE stun skill and 2-hit Thunder Roop, at least you can kill twice faster than the current patch.
