  • Lets talk about Archery!

    Archery is in a pretty poor spot right now, the worst it's ever been. After the damage "bug" fix and the change to footshot they've become less than viable..

    Reasons archery is no longer fun :
    Difficulty of consistent training/extremely boring target ( lack of a proper rotation of moves currently only have 4 moves to rotate.), difficulty of finding hunting partners ( that are willing to dodge your arrows), cost to train/lack of trainers ( holy hell arrows are expensive )

    Ideas to make archery better :
    -Bows whirling block
    -Bring back stringing and un-stringing for Sp, but make it max out at say 100 sp per week. ( you could realistically gain knowledge every cycle to an extent by just understanding the weight and balance of your bow and the draw of your string. )
    -Allow the training target to be shot point blank so archers can use foot shot again to train. ( or just return foot shot to it's previous usefulness. )
    -Change the damage cap back to 101 plz. ( no real reason for it to be 150 kind of arbitrary and pointless ya know?)
    -Allow for 0 Stray arrows for the rest of your life, once archer has properly trained.

    That's all for now, please discuss and appropriate the funds to my Swiss accounts.

    Long bows.
    That is all.

      To expound, dedicated long range support.
      The longer you focus, (remain stationary and unapproached), the better you can target.
      Like a stance.
      Balance being, once you commit, you are stuck to a round time. You can shoot.. you just can't move.
      This would obviously benefit Pardellian, shield walls and formations, but a dedicated crew could perform similarly.
      Pros? Cons?
