    BOWS certainly don't shoot with the trajectory of a magic missile. They don't have missile range...at least lower level ones don't. People keep saying the arrow travels forever...and they do not. Could someone detail the limitations of archer and how different bows perform.Is it just damage that changes with advanced bows ?
    Thanks

    The damage and speed are different from bow to bow but the range is the same across all bows.

    The arrows travel forever until they Hit a target or the ground. If you shot in the air, the arrow comes Back because of gravity and Hits the ground

    Arrows travel forever but you have to remember to incorporate the arc they have when going for long range

    You must be special. It has been advertised on every major MMO site, there is no box price, the cash shop that isnt even up yet is 100% asthetic and in no way translates to character power.

    Nice try though.

    I'm no ROA fanboy and openly criticize some of their decisions, but Dadpincher, you're an idiot.

    If your post didn't make me question your mental stability, the fact you just randomly put it in a thread about bows all but assured me.

    Maybe its time to detox....

    Archers are at a real disadvantage vs mages it would seem.
    -they have to compensate for arrow arc to get range
    -their arrows have far fewer ways to affect their target
    -arrows have to be made, carried around ,and can run out

    Others have a different view ?

    Yeah you failed to mention all the positives:

    Arrows are the highest dps in game
    Arrows cost much less stats to shoot than spells
    Archers can have mana shield and mage hunter/killer for extra damage/prots
    Arrows are cheaper than regs
    Leveling archery to pvp viability can be done in a couple hours, magics take much longer and are much more expensive.
    You only need 1 kind of arrow to shoot a bow, staves take 6 types of regs
