Archer

Bows of all types are powerful weapons. Generals and hunters alike recognize the power in dealing death from long distances, and from behind cover. Those dedicated to the bow—from mysterious cloaked strangers to heartless snipers—are often viewed with a mixture of respect and fear. Like any weapon adept, the archer’s skill is forged through experience and constant practice. A true archer becomes one with the bow and is able to accomplish with that weapon things that most would consider impossible, or at least nearly magical.

Additional Feats: 4th Assisting Shot, Point-Blank Shot; 6th Double Shot, Parting Shot, Running Reload; 8th Triple Shot; 10th Mobile Shot Stance; 18th Multishot Stance
