What does archery now do? (in General)

Jon explained it in his thread, but I am a bit dense.

I still do not understand what the skill now does.

Can anyone explain it to me in simple terms?

From what I can gather, allows you to hit when using a bow.

Don't equip a bow without training Archery.

No idea what level of archery you need though...

Actually if you read the post most of the changes benefit other ranged users, such as xbows and slings.

Although there is an increase in ranged damage, that is in ALL ranged damage.

All that archery seems to give is more chance to hit...

My bloodlust tank with a bow equipped missed a lot more than before the change....

Its easy,

if you don't have archery and just equip a bow, then your minion has a 20% chance of shooting an arrow in every round.
With archery maxed (1.00) you get a 90% chance of shooting an arrow in every round. And with the ELB you get 100% chance.

The chance of landing another arrow in the same is totally depinding on the PTH
advantage you on the opponent.

This means, without archery bows are pretty useless.

Anything im forgetting?

Wrong Henk.

With BL I fire my elb in every missile round.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] September 19 2006 8:58 AM EDT

ah i just got mentioned, its chance to hit, not chance to fire. The rest is pretty much right

Actually if you read the changelog carefully, archery has gotten a buff.

NOT missile rounds itself, esp with evasion, just the skill archery.
