The archer specializes in various archer skills and highly depends on such in terms of combat in order to deal damage from far range and attempt to avoid getting hit. Most archer skills can only be used while a bow is equipped.

There are currently 26 archer skills which can only be learned by the Archer. While 24 of them can be learned from a Tactics Instructor or from the skill menu, Arrow Arrow and Backstep Backstep (Archer) are gained automatically upon character creation.

All of the skills with the exception of Eagle's Eye can be enhanced with a glyph with the total glyph cost up to 55 points, depending on the character's level.
