    Dark Elf Appearance-

    Maybe something like this? I don't know, but after searching for my RPG character Crystice and Emmra, I'm not going to search very long for a female character. Got lucky with the Elven Archer though.

    Quad dmg against undead? AND it prevents a vampire from reliving? It would insta-kill (nearly) a lvl 10 vamp.


    Recharge of 1/4 a second? 4 arrows a second... cmon bud....

    Too many arrow types = constant ranged fire doing massive damage.

    Like a monk, but it has to be the finishing blow and it doesn't do much damage in the first place. Have you thought about the recharge time too? However I will downgrade it to making it drop half its levels instead.

    Merely for a possession bonus because outside it has to run though the animation. If it were DK1 then we'd have a bigger problem.

    Higher level archers/elven archers/dark elves have a similar affect in their respective games.

    That aside, you merely told me what you didn't like. What did you like about them? And were the appearances okay because I was in a rush at the time.

    DK2 Darkelf lvl 6-8 = prawnage, especially when you have 5-6.

    And they don't have uber strong attacks :/

    What do you mean? By the way, they use cross bows which like in DK2 take forever to fire.

    They still do incredible damage in masses.

    Not to mention, in possession you can go up and melee while bow recharges, and that can do nice dmg

    Oh melee. Whoops, messed up. But keep in mind that Possession supposed to have that kind of advantage. I can take out the entire level 16 dk2 fortress (Stone Keep) with that mistress you find. Well, maybe not the entire but can still win.

    But even so, did you look at those recharge times? And in groups, if they focus on one target they'll waste a bunch of potential shots and damage. That's what the archer is good at, fighting off armies with a mass sum of arrows. By the way. For the spells, the damage settings are lower because it just means High for a spell. Melee combat does more damage.

    The recharge times mean shit if there are enough spells to cast. You can fire each on in succession, and by that time, 1-2 have recharged.

    ...Or ALL the Arrows have to recharge if ANY of them are used.

    How's that? Besides, do you have any idea what 16 seconds feels like in a battle?
