I trained archery on a minion but I still don't get 3 rounds in ranged from that same minion. Does archery level need to be a certain minimum to get 3 rounds? Right now the skill is only 0.1.

Yeah, the archery effect is the percentage chance of getting to attack in the second round of ranged.

Ah! Thanks GL. So a skill of .5 gives you a 50/50 chance of getting 3 rounds. That's easy enough.

I'm not sure how the extra damage works though!

I'm pretty sure the damage is based soley on strength, and is not affected by the archery skill, but not certain of that.

A full archery boosts damage by 40%. It's linear, so a .50 archery gives a 20% boost in damage and a 50% chance of hitting in round 2. Both effects increase your total ranged damage, by 1.25*1.2=50%.

A full archery increases your ranged damage by 1.4*1.5=110%.

A full archery increases your ranged damage by 1.4*1.5=110%.
