Flag_archeryHow far? Blindfolded? What will you give me? Oh.. I thought you said it would be hard..

Archery is the only long range weaponry skill. By using a bow or crossbow, a player is able to hit a target from a distance. The Archery skill is automatically used when you engage in combat holding an archery weapon.


With Archery you can hit a target from 8 tiles away (that is, there must be no more than seven tiles between your character and the target). The target must be in line of sight and remain in line of sight until the arrow/crossbow bolt hits. Archery is affected by tactics and anatomy modifiers. If you are moving, there will be a brief delay every time you shoot. You cannot fire archery ammunition on the move. Archers use bolts with a crossbow and arrows with a bow. These can be made by a fletcher or bought from a fletching shop.
