Kingsroad Archer Guide – Builds, Skills, Gear and More

The archer is a ranged class character in Kingsroad. Definitely the most popular class because other casual RPGs often leave it out, while always including the wizard. The archer is initially quite weak in terms of defenses, but as it gains levels and skills you will always want one in your group, simply because it’s an impressive AoE damage dealer. When coupled with a knight, they can rush through levels without much trouble. Below you will not only find descriptions for active and passive skills, but also the best builds/specs for your Archer and type of gear and weapon bonuses you should be looking for.

Kingsroad Archer Skill Build

Even though you can create a more survivality spec, most players just go for the DPS build, which is the one below

  • Fire Arrow 10/10 , only has a 3sec cooldown, you can use it and abuse it
  • Spread Shot: 10/10 . The cooldown is merely 1 second, so you can actually spam this skill when soloing small groups of mobs. If you fully upgrade it, the hitting radius increases even more. The knockback can get you out of a hurry when surrounded by enemies.
  • Firestorm 10/10 , the perfect complement to spread shot.
  • Focus 10/10
  • Exploit 10/10
  • Haste: 10/10

You could also upgrade Decoy and leave Spread Shot at half upgrade level. This is mainly to complement when fighting Bosses that are inmune to the spread shot knockback.

If you are planning on spending money for extra skill points, then a good choice would be Quickness, this is amazing when it allows you to complete levels at an amazing amount of time when in groups. Also, Dodge is another good choice, 41% is a number high enough to find it very often.

Archer Stats In Gear and Weapons

  1. These guides are outdated, there is no fire arrow with 3 second cooldown. The beginner guides and recommendations are questionable regardless if you’re a spender or efficiently using your time and resources ingame while leveling.

    1. Bro they are not outdated. If you upgrade the skill all the way the colldown is 3 seconds. As when you upgrade them the cooldown goes down. And to be fair the build is more endgame if you would’ve noticed/played the game.

  2. I see where many are recommending the sniper/poison method. Which is better for higher level bosses? And how do you get the Yeti gear?
