Archery is a passive Hunter ability that causes the Hunter to counter-attack whenever they or adjacent allies are attacked by a ranged attack.

In-Game Description

(Passive) After a ranged attack against them or any adjacent allies, Hero counterattacks with a ranged attack of their own.

Upgrade

+30 Dodge against ranged attacks

Specifics

A Hunter with Archery will counter-attack all ranged attacks against them, provided they themselves are equipped with a ranged weapon. It will also trigger against attacks on adjacent allies.

Archery will not trigger if the Hunter takes mortal damage from an attack.

Tips

  • While Hunters usually avoid front-line combat, a Hunter with Archery and high defensive stats can be a powerful counter to an onslaught of ranged attackers.
  • Archery is most useful when fighting Drauven due to the large number of ranged attacks they use. It is also able to retaliate to prepared shots from Dart and Redcloak enemies allowing easier counter attacks.
  • Archery can retaliate with ranged attacks granted by a theme instead of a bow, as long as no bow is equipped. In this case Long Reach and Sharpshooter are recommended to overcome the low range of theme attacks.
