Many who seek to perfect the use of the bow sometimes pursue the path of the arcane archer. Arcane archers are masters of ranged combat, as they possess the ability to strike at targets with unerring accuracy and can imbue their arrows with powerful spells. Arrows fired by arcane archers fly at weird and uncanny angles to strike at foes around corners, and can pass through solid objects to hit enemies that cower behind such cover. At the the height of their power, arcane archers can fell even the most power foes with a single, deadly shot.
Arcane archers deal death from afar, winnowing down opponents while their allies rush into hand-to-hand combat.
Arcane archers can be of any alignment. It is common for arcane archers to be good or neutral.
