archery question (in General)

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] April 4 2010 3:41 AM EDT

Does archery only affect the bth of a bow, or does it affect pth, cth or anything else?

just bows according to wiki.

final CTH, from my experiences

Though i must note my experience is quite limited and haven't really tested it with this char as archery hasn't ever dipped far below max :P

The only thing I think anybody needs to know about archery is that if you're not training it and you're using a bow you miss out on your multiple hits in a big way.

With archery my +183 bow hits quads. Without it I'm lucky to get double strikes.

Doesn't really matter what affects when you look at it from the point of view of outcome does it?

Agreed. I tried a long time ago to use a bow without archery and I went from quint, yes 5, to doubles. Sometimes triples, very rare. So the way it is now, if you use a bow you almost have to use archery unless you are just really crafty. lol

I agree with all of the above.

Archery = An Archer's Essential barnone!

As far as I can tell though for everyone it is PTH. For ELB users though it is also Ranged AP as it takes away all Penalties.

Overall just use it or suffer the consequences if you are using a bow.

BTH, PTH, and CTH, individually.
