You are the arrow.

The last word in ranged combat, deal +1 damage with any bow. Make 3 arrows for the price of one! Activate your special ability to get 32 arrows once every 45 seconds.

Class Information

Unlock: Reach Novice-II Rank (500p)

The Archer starts with a Punch 1 Bow, 16 Arrows, and a Potion of Instant Health I.

  • The Archer deals +1 base damage with any bow.
  • The Archer can activate its Arrow Drop ability to get 32 arrows, which has a cooldown of 45 seconds.
  • The Archer can also craft arrows without using a feather.
    • This will only yield you 3 arrows per craft (as opposed to the usual 4).

Left-clicking with any Bow activates 'Rain of Arrows'.

  • A circle of particles appears to indicate where the Rain of Arrows will land.
  • On firing the bow, a ring of arrows will be shot where the circle indicated.
    • Only 1 arrow will be consumed on firing.


  • +1 (File:Half_heart.png) damage with a bow.
  • You can instantly make 32 arrows every 45 seconds.
  • Create arrows if you lack feathers.
  • Spawn with a bow for instant ranged attacks.
  • One of the only 4 classes to spawn with a health potion.


  • No mobility or AoE abilities makes Archer vulnerable from close range.

Tips & Tactics

  • Use the shovel you start with to quickly gather more arrow materials.
  • If you have the feathers, it is best to make the full arrow rather than leave it out.
  • Punch on the bow is useful for knocking enemies off their perch.
  • Build a hideout near mid and snipe the players there.
  • Some maps have glowstone, which you can use to make spectral arrows.
  • The punch bow is very useful when defending. Knock players off the map when they are trying to break through your defenses.
  • +1 Damage is equal to +50% damage on any bow, which equates to an upgrade from a Normal Bow to Power I or Power I/II/III/IV/V upgraded to Power III/IV/V/VI/VII. This makes Archer very powerful early game if you can get decent luck on your bow enchantments.
