A projectile soars through the air with blinding speed, the hunter remaining concealed from the eyes of her prey. Quiet and swift, the arrow strikes true and fells the fiendish demon with a deathlike silence.
Having already gained a glimpse of the evasive elf and this hunter’s way of life, we shall now take a closer look at her tactics. In time, a veteran hunter must choose to walk one of two paths. The Scout is a swift sharpshooter, capable of dealing death from afar whilst remaining nimble and highly mobile. The Shade is a dark creature who rejoices in striking down foes in silence with a mix of traps, poisons and stealth.
But prior to looking at the Shade and the Scout, both Tier 1 specialisations (the first step along either path), let us consider the basic skills and strategies of the hunter. Her skills are as follows:
Dexterous Shot: By drawing upon her natural grace and affinity with the bow, the hunter is capable of firing a single arrow at a target with extreme strength and precision, inflicting grievous injuries.
Hunter’s Mark: The hunter shoots a special arrow at the enemy, causing a severe open wound that will bleed over time.
Icy Shot: Having summoned the energies of ice and imbued a projectile with its destructive force, the hunter unleashes an attack upon her victim, exacting blisteringly cold damage from afar.
Sky Shatter: When pushed by an approaching enemy, the hunter is able to focus a double strike at her target that will repulse them momentarily, enabling her to retreat or take another shot.
It is said that silentium est aureum, silence is golden. In the eyes of the hunter, silence is worth more than gold; it is the difference between life and death, victory and defeat.
