"Archers stand out of harm's way, raining arrows upon their foes from afar."
The Archer Job class is available to Hume and Viera in Final Fantasy Tactics A3. Archers are well known for their long range attacks via bow-wielding in combat. They are very useful units that allow you to inflict damage on the first turn. Their Focus ability prepares a powerful attack, and several other abilities inflict status effects upon enemies. A useful ability against undead is Burial, which removes undead from battle entirely and thereby prevents their resurrection. An Archer works best with a strong melee unit acting as a protective shield, to stop incoming enemies. By mastering three Archer A-abilities, Humes can become Hunters, while Viera can become Snipers with two Archer A-abilities.
