Please use this thread to discuss your thoughts on archers and if they are too good or not good enough. Consider it a continuation of some of the discussion that has been had on the suggestions board. There we're some of complaints about archer spam/archer stacking on the servers and the class seems to be more popular than before.
Homer has suggested the idea of making a very weak 0 skill shield on the marketplace that might help infantry deal with the issue of archer spam. These would likely be the current red, yellow, blue and green shields and maybe a heraldic one for clans to make use of. The shield would be bad for any sort of melee fight but would be able to block a few arrows so infantry can move around in the open a little easier without being shot to pieces.
Suggest what you think could be good ideas to help balance the class, if you feel they need balancing at all.
