Pros and Cons[]


  • High Agility. The Dash ability combined with a decent Strength stat makes you very good at avoiding combat or "kiting" foes (attacking from a distance and then running away until they fall more than one space behind to attack again) with bows or spears.
  • Very high Stamina lets you use piercing shot and dash frequently.
  • Can see enemy health to judge their strength--especially important for guessing which modifier an enemy has.
  • Mountainclimbing saves you from tough spots and, at high levels, allows crossing mountains as if they were normal terrain, making you near invincible.


  • Health is as low as for a Force User! You are very fragile in melee combat, especially if you do not have a shield.
  • Starting equipment offers no good way of looting chests.
  • Kiting is not very effective against the Demon Lord and is not well suited to most dungeons.


  • Between your Agility, Dash and Mountainclimbing, there is no reason a hunter should ever be in a fight unless you're pretty sure you can win. This goes double for attacking when your opponent can actually retaliate.
  • Although the name and abilities suggest bows, Hunters are quite effective with a spear as well. Their high Agility gives a good chance of attacking twice (or more), which bows cannot do. Be careful though, as you usually only get one free hit with a spear unless you're fast enough to get extra turns relative to the enemy.
  • Piercing shot can attack enemies through walls. At high strength it can also be used to destroy walls quickly using a bow when you don't have time to switch to a melee weapon.
  • Remember to get uncrossable terrain between you and an enemy so you can freely attack with a bow or spear until they are dead.
  • Once you reach level 5 in mountainclimbing, you can cross mountains in only one turn for a trivial stamina cost. Abuse this; almost no enemies can hurt you if a mountain is between you and it, but you can still hurt them. Consider taking the Cliffhanger perk to reach this point faster.
  • Do not use perks or the Goddess statue to raise your agility further; the biggest advantage of agility is Combo Hits, but bows cannot combo. Strength is much more effective.
  • Always buy all the arrows in shops, even if you don't think you'll use them all. Arrows weigh nothing, but are a finite resource, so stock up when you can.
