Rogue archers are the hardest class to pick up, the fact that you don't have a decent ice bow or death attacks, it has a few bows and the strongest ones are gotten only at the end of the game, why having so many fire class bows and we only have 1 cold elemental bow? It's not even good to use it to kill enemies from elemental plane of fire after the sewer of horrors, so I have some suggestions:

Add +1 cold bow which looks like this
Weapon's Name: Legendary Demon Hunter's Bow
Damage: 5-10 normal damage +5 cold element damage
Speed: 11
Crit %: 4
Attribute: Banishing 3

Add +1 death element bow which looks like this
Weapon's Name: Supreme Devil's Longbow
Damage: 5-9 normal damage +6 death element damage
Speed: 11
Crit %: 4
Attribute: Beast Slayer 2; Paralisys 1

Add new advanced skills for archers

Skill Name: Elite Longbowman
Description: You have been trained to be an elite archer by mastering the bows, meaning you can increase your bow's range and when you are underpressure, you stop missing hits at your enemies, this results on you not having fumbled arrows when enemies get closer to you anymore.
Type: Passive skill
Prerequisites: Archery 3
Progression
Level 1: Increases range of fired arrows by 0,5m and decreases chances of having fumbled arrows when enemies are close to you to 75% of fired arrows.
Level 2: Increases range of fired arrows by 1m and decreases chances of having fumbled arrows when enemies are close to you to 40% of fired arrows.
Level 3: Increases range of fired arrows by 2m and decreases chances of having flumbed arrows to 0%, this means you won't have fumbled arrows anymore.

Skill Name: Lethal Headshots
Description: You aim at the target on his head and prepare a deadly headshot, and you have only a few seconds to use it.
Type: Active skill
Prerequisites: Archery 3; Agility 6
Progression
Level 1: Your next attack does extra damage: 10 + 1x your agility. - Cooldown: 16sec
Level 2: Your next attack does extra damage: 15 + 2x your agility. - Cooldown: 11 sec
Level 3: Your next attack does extra damage: 20 + 3x your agility. - Cooldown: 9 sec

  • There will be no updates to this game
  • Archers are not a genuinely playable class; you can maybe fight to sort of make them work, but it's hard work on Hard.
  • Given how much advantage Bucklers over a 2nd weapon, I think a better Skill would be a RANGER skill that buffs bows & dual wield.
  • But back to the first point, there will be no updates to this game.

I'm currently playing Titan Quest (mobile version) and it's a joy to play an actually-viable Archer.

Sure... everyone's a critic. It's just easier to set things ablaze than tying ice cubes to arrows.

The post above rather sums up the reality with archers. I --think-- initially the game was considering a more robust archer build but things took a life on it's on. Players have beater the game on every level of difficulty with a true archer build so it's possible, if not the easiest route to go.

Thread locked. A few posts deleted.

For clarity, several posts of different people were deleted. Some for drifting into personal attacks, some for other reasons.

It's great to be passionate about the game and it's okay to have strong feelings for a particular build. Just try to stay within forum rules (and maybe keep posts less than a 20-page dissertation).

Thanks !
