You start your journey with the ‘Asrai Long Bow’ and the ‘Anaereth War Blade’. Charging the War Blade will help you take an overhead slash of the sword.

Moreover, the arrows can go through enemies in a line if the bow is fully drawn. One of the more powerful weapons belong to the class is the ‘Wardancer Blade’. The jabs can reach out to a highly extended range and pick out enemies in the reach.

A specially designed shorter-strung bow consisting of a high ammo reserve and a fast hip fire. However, keep in mind that the Hip Fire doesn’t have an armor penetration.

Therefore, make sure to always aim perfectly at the target since aimed shots cause a great amount of penetration and armor damage.

Hagbane Shortbow
This bow is capable of firing poisoned shots that deal a great amount of damage on the opponent. Once the arrow touches the target, a great explosion happens (charged attack) and causes initial as well as increasing damage after wards up to 70% regular damage over time).

If targeted directly at the armor, this explosion goes through the armor which becomes poisoned for 110% (regular poison of damage).
