New forum section so I was wondering why y'all chose archers lol.

I really liked having a bird. That's it.

    Bowmaster was kind of the class I've always wanted to play in MS1 but never ended up doing it... I just got too used to having a crapton of HP on my Hero, so the Bowman squishiness was hard on me. >_< The Bows looked so beautiful tho... best looking weapons imo.

    I traditionally play the healer/support classes in all my games due to the lack of them. All the class polls gave me the confidence to choose a DPS class for once since I think there will be enough healers to go around.

    I didn't want to play a melee class so that left my options between Assassin, Heavy Gunner, Archer and Wizard.

    The voice and personality of the Archer from this video is what finally sold me on them

    I prefer archers in games. I have to at least give it a try.

    To make a long story short, I always main an archer in every game I play, and MapleStory is the reason why.

    To make a long story long, here it is all written down.

    I love bows...lmao ALSO I loved how I had one hook skill that made crossing maps super easy. The mobility and range is very appealing to me.

    Archer/Ranger at heart. Play it on mostly every game. I love Bows and Crossbows.

    In MS1, it was the only left-over class after my friends had picked theirs. :p

    Archer is the first class i played very well in MS1. Its Always my main-class-to-go class :P. I like the range, skill looks and you have a hawk as companion.

    Archer life for me. Unfortunately, I didn't like the revamped Bowmaster after the RED update so I went for Phantom instead, then Wind Archer.

    Strafe, Hurricane, Dragon Pulse, Hamstring, Arrow Rain, Sharp Eyes, Phoenix = YES.

    Because "bows" no question ask xD

    Nah jk it's more than just that, its because I hate getting hit by mobs if melee, and spellcasting doesn't interest me much. I never played MS1 but I play RO, and love archer job :3 In many games, I always pick them because it is fun to play ranged ^^

    Distance adventage.
    It's usually my first pick in any game - play safe, from afar, learn the game basics, master art of staying healthy with no potions used if possible to preserve money for equipement. If you avoid damage, you can care less that your armor is not the best and you can enjoy the game.

    I usually always have a hard time picking between healer classes and nature-related classes in MMOs. My main game is FFXIV so I don't have to worry about class-switching there (you can be all classes on one character) but for Maplestory in particular I chose archer because of the bird too LOL. I love nature and animals and that love usually wins out over any other desire haha.

    I like it a lot when nature and archer combine, it's absolute goodness <3

    I fell in love with the simplicity of the archer, i know most people wont pick it as a class because it might seem like a boring no skill class , but my time or the time i spend in game is also limited with work and responsibilities. I feel an archer would be a good choice for me. That and i also like the eagle. I feel like its a chill class. and i love it.

    Too many people planning to play healer, plus archer classes are almost always pretty self sufficient. Being able to snipe from a distance and kite is also a huge plus.

    Range Class in every game. Easy to solo stuff/kite. Plus I love having pets.
