After two years of playing PW, i dedicated to switch to FW. I hope we will create a great community. I just want to say hello to my future guild mates and ask a question about something bothers me:

Why don't we have an archer class? I mean bow, not rifle.

    Because rifles > bow. There is an "archer" class, it just doesn't conform to the usual standard of bows, crossbows, and arrows. SUPPORT THE DIFFERENCES :D

    in sanctuary (elf village) you have elf npc's with bows, there should be an elf archer in this game or maybe a future class to implement

    Going off of the npcs, I think we have a good chance of getting one. Not in time for OB, but maybe for the first expansion.

    Marksmen=archer. The difference is simply visual. I don't see why they would introduce a class that they already have.

    Big boomstick shooting your nuts off > tiny winy little bow with wooden arrows any time. :3 Besides, they're basically the same.

    Yeah, archers kind of have a stealth/soft appeal. They're not as BANG! as a Marksman, lol. Maybe they might add them later. =]

    That's like saying marksman=mage so why have marksman. Archers could easily have a different system/gameplay.

    No, mages use magic, archers/marksman use bullets/arrows/physical power. Two way different things.

    Not really. If you understand the mechanics of this game, you'd know that marksmen are just mages with different skills. There is no physical-magical distinction.

    I agree that's the same, but mages are spellcasters with magical power and gunners/archers shoot with skills with physical power. Two different things

    I still fail to see what magical power and physical power have to do with anything when they work exactly the same in this game. Bows and guns are also different things. So I don't understand why you think guns and magic are so different but guns and bows are too similar to have an archer class.

    Uhm not really o.O
    There is a physical defence resistance and magical ones, they are seperate.

    And marksmen is PWEs replacement for the archer in this game, they wanted something a bit different, if you look at their other games youll see a lot of bow using characters.
    Its possible that they might add them in a future expansion. . but wow how boring ijs, theres a lot of more interesting options they could add over another pwe archer class.

    Sigh...not really. When will people understand physical in this game is just another element like fire or wind and they are exactly the same. There is no physical attack stat, there is no magic attack stat. There's just attack. A marksman does not do physical attacks. It casts earth and fire spells just as a mage casts earth, fire and wind spells.

    They should just give guns to elves.

    That would make quite the spectacle, so much that I'd even try an Elven Marksman.

    Just for the lols at how lore just got rolled.

    If you actually read what i said and what i quoted, i was stating that there are different resistances, e.g you might have more p resistance than dark-so its not all one number.
    Not that the dwarves atk with physical atks.

    Then why did you quote me and say "not really" when I never said it was all one number?

    You made it wound as if there was one overall defense, i thought like some people maybe you didnt know there was a mastery and resistances tab in the character menu.

    lol OR!!!! maybe FW should let elves be marksmen....implement bows as another weapon for marksmen, add a new skill tree!!! wala!! gun could become PWI's new version of the Xbow :O...

    but seriously making a new class for a bow user would be interesting but....unless it has major differences ect then it would be no point....

    oooh new thread idea >.<

    For the sake of originality alone should FW not have Elven Archers... They should add Elven Magic Warriors, using the lven blades seen in the LOTRO movie.

    i support the idea of having dwarves gunners to having archers... archers r juz too common... PWE will haf to crack their heads dam hard in order to create a new outlook n skills tat r different fr other games. Anyway there r already 5 races n 8 diff classes, hence i doubt very much tat PWE will spent the time n money on creating another class where there is already a similar one availble. If u really prefer archer to marksman... u can always play PW, y bother abt playing FW?

    I agree with saboking. Every single mmo has an elf archer. FW is doing something new and different. I think that's great.

    Because the devs chose not to have one in this game.... that's why.
