archer skills are bugged so far...
This is a discussion on Archer as a playable class? within the KO4life Private Server Area forums, part of the Private Servers category; archer skills are bugged so far......
I read most of the replies here, and I do understand why people are frustrating
. Well, archers might be underpowered compared to other classes on solo
basis . But in a pk party archers can be very usefull . As many already
commented styx, overall dmg and far away shots . The point of being
archer is not to go tank people, but to stay behind and pick the targets
out from what sins are taking . They can shoot a running mage and help
out sins to finish off, they can spam 500% dmg on a healing priest . Well,
archer might not be the best character, but if you play it right, u will never
die and u will still get kills . believe me, i've been playing for years and will
also roll archer here on ko4life .
And well, if you like to solo and to do fast dmg, then dont go archer, you will just get frustrated .
as an archer you have to be patient, and do lots of /town's . thats just how u have to play an archer
Paper mage is great for group (mage party) and BP is great for soloing enthsmall mobs of people. But outside this niche there weaknesses are evident. The technically correct classes will come in hadny more often, because the scope of their ability is limited, more focused.
Paper mages where very much a part of old skool KO, and to a lesser extent BP's. I for one would never go INT fire.
People complaining about no archer combo? HELLO, it's KE style, there was no such a thing as archer combo.
Damage wise, today there were a few archers up on top of the ob heal spamming shots and I kept getting spammed for like 400-500s, and you are telling me they don't own?
This is a simple fact, most of you that are playing archer now, don't know how to play it... or at least the KE style. That's why back in the day most that have tried have simply changed back to Sin within a few days. Coming to my point, I remember back in KE there was 1 specific archer on my server, with his level 70 shot he 1 hit most of the people on the server as it did almost 2k damage,... and you are telling me they suck . As I said, this is KE and there is no archer combo... we don't want this server to look like a KOXP fest with the archers running and hitting. So stop complaining and become a sin, or are you afraid to get your hands dirty and want to stay back and KS NP?
i never played KnightOnline with 70+ (83)cap.. so i'm used to playing with -70 skills and stats. If i gonna play server with 83cap and use 70+ skills, then i will suckkkK so bad!
There is a huge difference in current ko and old ko.. i never liked ROFD+!
You dont even take the time to read ppls response, your take a quick look and try to make a response thats only focused on getting your point validated, even if ppl already explain you wrong.
In the end if you think archer its not a viable class in a KE server, then just dont play archer, and even better, just dont bother playing at all.
