The Archer is the ranged starting unit. She can be recruited from the Mead House. Since she is a starting unit, her stats are already at their max when she is recruited.

Passive Ability: Puncture[edit | edit source]

By standing still, the Archer is able to line up a shot that takes advantage of an enemies missing armor, doing bonus damage.

For every 2 points of armor her target has lost, the Archer gains 1 additional strength to her attack, as long as she didn't move beforehand. This makes her especially deadly near the end of a fight, or against tough opponents who have lost a lot of armor.

Promotions[edit | edit source]

After achieving 5 total kills, the Archer is eligible for promotion to one of the following classes:

Bowmaster Siege Archer Skystriker
Bowmaster

Lore[edit | edit source]

Women were not accepted for a long time when it came to joining in battle. In fact, it is fair to say they were never accepted. Those women you see in war are only there because the men who protested are now lying beneath a pile of loose stones and soil, feathered with hand-made arrows.
