Default Poor Archers

Seems that the bow class's dont get any perks vs tanks or dot user's. Dots and Tanks do however get huge bonus's against archers.

Self Bladow is probably this single worst thing an archer can do to them self vs a dot caster. Vengance nope wont help DD only, Kite nope wont help either. what can you do? Oh just die.

Actually is there anything archers are good at any more?

Poor 2H piercers, too ! Bottom of the totem pole melee weapon wise, but piercer casting poison DoTs with an archer is kind of good !!

One
With
Nature

Not only was it one of the most recently added skills but it's OP as hell for archers vs the very builds you're whining about.

But they are not the bestestest class ever so clearly that alone warrants a very needed buff to the poor archers.

Yeah...archers need a buff against dots and tanks. Please buff them. After all, they can't use shields/whips or dots effectively themselves.

imo there's no reason to be an archer because they're so weak, one with nature needs to be at least 75% without shield, 90% with shield for it to be balanced.

Also, there needs to be an archery skill to help avoid parries because it's not fair the there is strikethrough to avoid parries but no archery skill to do the same.

For slow effects, use the slow % but as a negative.

Just repeat for multiple effects.

DO NOT multiply by 1+slow% to get your new delay. 1*1.4 is not the same as 1/0.6 and your answer will be wrong.

Trained eye? Correct me if I'm wrong, but does that not work the same way?

I agree archers need an anti parry skill similar to melee.
