    lets face it guys.. Destroyer and Magekiller sucks compared to these mega super godlike wizards 99.9% of the game is dominated by. I've spent a lot of time thinking about how we could SPICE up this playstyle and make it more viable for the ppl who play only 1-2 hours a week.

    1)ROOT SHOT - This is a simple one, you charge up an arrow that entangles your opponents feet if hit directly, this would cause them to be ROOTED for a brief time, I was thinking around 3-6 seconds. The player would still be free to do anything, just stationary.

    2)BLEED SNIPE - So you shoot a nice arrow and hit them in their jugular, not only does it do nice damage 50-100, but it also adds a DAMAGE OVER TIME debuff that bleeds the player, causing a trail of BLOOD that you can SEE through BLINDS.

    3)SILENCING ARROW - THIS arrow is my FAVORITE. THIS arrow will be used to interrupt SPELLS or BOW SHOTS if hit with it. very similar to ULTIMA ONLINE FIZZLES.

    4)EYE SHOT - TURNS your screen RED when you get hit in the FACE with this ARROW. Would be akin to EYE ROT, but for BOW!

    5)FREEZE TAG - Wow, this one is really awesome. You're a sick archer and you shoot a giant crystallized arrow that when collided with any player FREEZES them for 5-20 seconds.

    6)ACHILLES SNIPE - YOU shoot the player in the BACK of the HEEL and they are now walking, UNABLE to sprint for 60 seconds.

    7)MAGE KILLER - YOU CHARGE THIS ONE UP. After 3 seconds, you can now aim and shoot it, not only does it PUSH the enemy player back but it ALSO BURNS their MANA and STAMINA by 33%!

    8)VOLLEY - you rain 10 arrows from the sky, doing AOE damage to those who stand in it. Something like TOXIC RAIN, but for people who love rangers.

    thoughts? anyone have any other ides? I would love to hear them

    OH YEAH! I almost FORGOT... what do guys think about adding WOBBLE back to the game for MOUNTED ARCHERY ONLY (No magic)

    lol im tire of seeing these posts. When are you guys going to learn BPG will not go this direction anytime soon. This was one of the main reasons Unholy Wars was made in the first place is to fix the diversity issue. If they want diversity, they would have bought the Unholy Wars license instead.

    What is sad is that there are more than a handful of people that would read these abilities and think 'FINALLY ARCHERY WOULD BE VIABLE'.

    What about DEATH SHOT - A huge charge up ability that has a 50% chance to instantly kill the player or chance to crash the players game client.

    Here's a trick: land arrows!

    It's already in the game too!

    You will be amazed at the damage.

    DILDO STRIKE - Shoot your arrow right inside the BUTT of your enemy, causing them to get COLON CANCER after a 5 minute cooldown. The players then needs to go visit a HEALER within 3 days or else his character dies and is deleted.

    Let's add explosive arrows that are basically just fireball arrows. I want to juggle my opponents with arrows.
