Strategy

As basic ranged units, the archers' greatest strength is at range against most units. To use their full potential you should upgrade them with Silverthorn Arrows. They are most effective when positioned behind swordsmen. Patrol of the Border Guards allows them to enter or leave combat very quickly. They are the best units to protect your castle by placing them onto hubs to shoot down at enemies.
