Note: This guide is currently under construction. Updates coming shortly!


The Archer uses their attack speed and critical hit ratio to deal high DPS to enemies with the bow! The Archer is also able to learn skills which add additional effects to their arrows. This class is known for its ability to passively increase the players movement speed as well as being able to summon a trusty pet eagle which assists the player during battle!

    This is so vague. This doesn't explain anything.

    Check the Megathread, it'll explain a lot more :)

    I'm going to be honest with you, right now it really seems like you're just trying to up your post count.
    Your megathread already has a good general compilation of classes, there's no need to make individual threads in every subforum when they're literally just copy+pasted from the megathread.

    I did that to filter people that are looking for info on classes from each child category to the megathread, couldn't care less who created the threads - it's about sharing the content and giving everyone the information they need. :)

    If he wanted to spam his posts up, he could greet everyone in the introductions section haha.

    Alright alright you guys, just delete these conversations because it's embarrassing to let other people see this chat. So let's clear up and forget about it, stick to the topic and always remember, don't jump onto conclusions too fast, and be nice to each other. Cheers~

    This guide provides quite a bit of information? Don't judge a book by its cover...

    @Baxterology When the post was first made, it was literally just the stat overview and a link to the megathread.

    That's correct. :p

    It was just a generic template post while I was working on the other 8 threads. :D

    The first version of the Archer guide is now complete. The strategies section will be added as GMS2 strategies develop. Additionally, all information will be translated to better reflect GMS2 as information becomes available.

    Edit: I've also renamed the Ranger guide to the Archer guide and have replaced all terminology as it seems as though GMS2 will be renaming the class.
