So i started playing Archer.I need some tips.
Demon or Sage?(If can tell me why that one is better would be awesome)
How good is a archer in pk?
And what stats should I get on R8 or should I get dragon too?
Thats it I guess.Thanks for your time<3 :smiley:

demon and sage both work for archers - others can give you more details in where one is usualy better than the other ( im not much of an archer)
archers can be a real threat in pk.

usualy sage archers got for -channeling on their gears while demon archers go for int. and dex ofc for both


edit: you can check here for the effects the sage / demon skills have and compare to see what you like better

Sage. Unless you have an ungodly amount of EC and Dama's to get all -int gear. Then go demon.

Sage overall is better but demon with APS and ridiculously expensive gear will win in a fight.

Sage is better in 1v1 and more fun in mass if played correctly (it's the easier side to play)

Demon is more useful in mass because of purge chances, but it is actually harder to properly play.  It has a shorter stun, and often runs into chi issues in 1v1.  It is also more expensive to be well geared as a demon.  If you have proper CC classes with you in mass to control your targets, a demon aps archer will eat every arcane and LA easily.  Demon archers aps are also useful if you don't have a wf available for purging hard targets.

Sages traditionally build to either be channeling ea's or dex ea's.  I have a set for both builds, and I can't honestly decide which one I like more.  Chan/dex stats are a whole lot easier to get your hands on, making sage a cheaper alternative while still being effective.  This is definitely the easier option unless you're like me and you have the ec to make 2 of everything.

In terms of gear choice as a sage, since you're new, build for chan.  It is a lot easier to play. Do not learn the new primal skills btw.  And do not wear dragon ever.  ok bye

+1

And with Sage EA you can kill all classes. With a Demon EA it's hard to kill a heavy classe if it's a good player =/

Scratch everything that I said above, don't play an archer. Create an assassin that has good dex/crit rite on gear's and go DPH with chill.

1 shot everything thats not a barbarian.

You are best.
