Tera Archer Guide

Updated on February 21, 2013

Archer: A Class in TERA Online

If you like having a tool for every job, the archer is the class for you . . . especially if you like tools that explode, penetrate armor, trap enemies in spiderwebs, or transform into radiant energy. The archer is a class that rewards clever tactics, knowing the right countermeasure for every threat, and thinking two steps ahead of your enemy.

TERA Online (The Exiled Realm of Arborea) is a fresh and exciting new massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG). It's being developed by Bluehole Studio, and published by En Masse Entertainment.

This lens will gather and post various information and guides relating to the Archer class. Be sure to bookmark, subscribe and like it, because we'll make this the best Archer resource out there!

Archer Basics

"Swift sharp shooters who strike from a distance"

The archer is death, pure and simple. An Archer's arrows effortlessly punch through enemy armor, consume foes in fiery energy, and trap them so they can't even flee! Archers leave behind a trail of victims that look like pincushions-many dead before they knew what hit them. Members of this class don't waste their time taming and charming pets. Instead, they deal in tactical supremacy . . . and lethality.

The archers are highly skilled marksmen able to thin the ranks of their enemies in battle. Firing volley after volley with deadly accuracy, a single archer can cause panic and discord in a battle. Although the archer's defense is weaker than others, the enemies that try to close in on them will find that the archers are highly mobile and rarely stationary.

Archer Playing Style

If you like having a tool for every job, the archer is the class for you . . . especially if you like tools that explode, penetrate armor, trap enemies in spiderwebs, or transform into radiant energy. The archer is a class that rewards clever tactics, knowing the right countermeasure for every threat, and thinking two steps ahead of your enemy.

Archers are swift hunters who rely on precision. This class is equipped with large bows, fast speed and the ability to continuously fire arrows from a long distance. They have excellent maneuverability, deal large amounts of damage and fluster their enemies by incessantly firing barrages of arrows towards them. Since Archers have sacrificed heavy armor in favor of swift maneuverability, keeping their distance from enemies is of utmost importance.

Archer Weapons & Armor

Archers wear light armor so they can stay mobile-and they have several skills that make sure they remain several steps away from their foes.

Their weapon is a bow, of course, but what a bow it is! Every arrow the archer shoots delivers a magic payload of some sort, and the bow can fire multiple arrows at multiple enemies. High level archers can shoot arrows so fast it would make a machine-gunner jealous!

Archer Skills

Archer skills are mostly arrow attacks (that's what you do, after all): arrows that guide themselves to an enemy's weak points, arrows that fall like rain from the sky, and arrows that leave your bow as a shaft of wood and arrive at your target as charged-up lightning bolts.

As an archer, you'll also have an array of traps that immobilize, poison, or just plain explode your enemies. Everyone tries to rush an archer, and your traps punish them for such unimaginative tactics. You also have a web arrow for foes who try to flee-another unimaginative tactic you call "postponing the inevitable."

Archer Leveling

As the archer progresses through levels, a noticeable increase in damage output is quite clear. This is, in part, due to the fact that many of the skills earned early on are upgraded in subsequent levels, rendering them much more potent. Added to the archer's armory in the higher levels are several skills that no archer would ever want to do without. Some of them are Penetrating Shot, Soaring Attack and Backstep.
