Hello there! Today I will be telling you tips, tricks, and strategies for my favorite class;
The Archer is a medium speed class, with moderate armor and health. The Archer relies on his longbow and crossbow. The Short Sword (Nicknamed the Butterknife), is a small and generally weak sword. It can deal out a lot of damage if used correctly.
Run away! The Archer is not a class designed for close range! Your best opportunity to deal damage is at long range with your crossbow and longbow! If you get too close, there's nothing you can do about a Berserker!
Keep Your Crossbow Loaded!
An unloaded crossbow has led to the death of many Archers. Conserve the loaded bolt and only use it when it is truly necessary!
Don't Get Cocky!
Stay behind your teammates! If you get cocky and charge into battle, you're likely to become mincemeat! Stay at long range and lay down suppressive fire!
Dealing with Teams; Vikings!
Next up, I'll tell you how to deal with different teams! First up;
The Berserker is a relatively easy class to deal with. He has no defense whatsoever against ranged weaponry! They are quick on their feet and can dodge your projectiles! Predict their movements, and with enough arrows, they'll go down! Watch the axe, though!
The Gestir is a little bit harder to deal with. He is armed with a spear, a sword and shield, and javelins. The Sword does more damage than you'd think, so keep out of range! The shield is weaker than others, and goes down in about four or five hits. Watch his javelins, because two fully charged throws can easily kill you! When is shield is down, focus fire on him. He is hard to parry in close range, so keep on the offensive unless you can predict which direction he will swing!
This is the hardest Viking class to deal with. What they lose in speed they make up for in armor. They can take about ten through twelve hits with the shield before it goes down. Their axe can kill you in three hits, two if they're lucky! The sword does a little more damage than your short sword, but they have a shield too! Their throwing axes can kill you in four or five hits, so when engaging a Huscarl in ranged combat, watch his movements! The axe is incredibly powerful, so try and keep out of range on it!
Two out of three of the Vikings have shields, so it is advised to flank them or get behind them to deal damage! The Gestir and Huscarl are rather slow, but the Berserker is one of the fastest classes in the game! When dealing with him, keep him away when he gets close to you!
Dealing With Teams; Pirates!
The Skirmisher is, by far, the hardest Pirate to deal with, maybe the hardest in the game! His cutlass does a high amount of damage at incredible speeds. His flintlock does moderate health and armor damage, but it's inaccurate. Exploit this weakness by dishing out accurate shots with your bow! The Keg is easy enough to avoid, just stay out of the throw range and you'll be fine! He is much faster than you, so get him while he's at long range!
The Captain is a little faster than you, so keep a long to moderate distance! His cutlass does more damage than the Skirmisher's cutlass ,but swings slower. His blunderbuss at point blank does high armor and health damage. His parrot does two to three damage per second, and can be killed in one hit from any weapon. He has a lot of armor but not much health. If you hit him three or four times, he'll be near death!
The Skirmisher and Captain are a good team when it comes to dealing damage! The Skirmishers usually charge ahead, so don't rush them! Captains are slower and stay behind, but are a tank class for the Pirates! Fire at long range at all costs!
I hope this guide helped you in your endeavors!
