3 common archers are more dangerous then Baal. It is not normal thing in cRPG.

use splitting arrows or magic blast;) against them and rush attack to kill the last one

The problem with archers is they tend to come in groups and can stun you for 5 seconds or so at a time, and will often do so back-to-back, leaving you stunned for 5-20 seconds. Rushing into a group of archers on Nightmare will often mean certain death. The best strategy I've found for dealing with them is to get their attention, then run behind a wall or post or something. They'll be forced to run around into close range where you can usually finish them one at a time. Summoning your creature might also help.

I'm pretty sure if you were facing archers in real life you'd not be best pleased either. :P

Just make sure you're increasing your ranged and magic defenses, not just melee.

Good luck.

1) it is game not real life.
2) I have over 1500 damage + >60% defence and archers are still most dangerous enemy.
3) maybe they use nukes?

I also think they are overpowered, but I haven't played post-patch.

edit: i Was talking about archer builds, as compared to enemy archers.

*shrug* I think it is how it should be. Archers ARE powerful, couple them with magic and they are going to be tough to beat. They aren't overpowered, we just need to learn strategies which work with them.

Not everything should be a cakewalk.

Cheers.

Oh, I was expecting the complains about archer class in the game. This oen was really overpowered in the original Div (Ego Draconis). Actually, by the time when you learn Blast + Ranger Power +regeneration - nothing could stop you :P

I'm surprised someone has issue with long range attack type enemies.
