Dofus is a MMO game by Ankama Games that has a large and faithful fan base, even though it is not as well-known as other MMORPGs. The game has a prequel called Wakfu Online, which expands the world of Dofus. 

However, this article is not about how successful Dofus is, but about helping players to master one of the most popular classes in the game, the Cra or archer. If you have enough Dofus Kamas, you can also quickly upgrade your Cra. In this way, combined with the following strategies, your Cra will become more powerful!

Dofus Cra Archers

Turn Based Doesn’t Mean Useless

Archers in RPGs often have a lot of mobility and space to maneuver. Their main difference from other classes is their lack of close-range combat skills.

Dofus is a tactical turn-based RPG, but archers still work the same way. Ankama balanced the long-range class well to use the battlefield effectively in Dofus.

However, the main role of the Cras in Dofus is not to deal damage, but to weaken, manipulate and deter enemies. The Cras have various attacks that can disable, damage or control enemies.

Leveling And Battle Tactics

Early on, as a Cra, you’ll find that most attacks are geared for standard kill-quick and kill-fast tactics

The beginning skills for the Cra leave little room for error and helps put players on the fast track of recognizing that it’s essential to stay on the move and keep a distance from enemies.

At later levels the Cra can lay done some mean suppression fire by poisoning enemies as well as dampening the distance of enemy fire to keep them from attacking, even up close. 

For tactical gamers who enjoy the support role of a strong DPS with ranged abilities and AOE attacks, the archer fits the role quite well, but for anyone who likes to tank during a fight you might want to look elsewhere for another character in the Dofus universe.

Cra Archer Skills And Abilities

Level – NA – Dispersing Arrow: A ranged AOE skill that pushes back enemies. Requires an exchange for Doploons to use.

Level 1 – Retreat Arrow: An air elemental attack that pushes enemies back by a space. Essential for keeping enemies from getting close.

Level 1 – Magic Arrow: A medium fire damage attack good for dwindling an opponent’s HP.

Level 1 – Poisoned Arrow: A standard poison attack. This is a good move to use before you decide to move your character and or reposition. Works good as a DOT.

Level 3 – Frozen Arrow: A weaker version of the above Magic Arrow, however it reduces the target’s AP to compensate.

Level 6 – Burning Arrow: A high damage fire arrow attack that also pushes back the designated target. Perfect as a counter move during group battles.

Level 9 – Distant Shooting: This is very similar to the Eagle Eye talent buff for the archers on Allods Online. This skill is a passive buff that permanently increases the range of all Cra projectile attacks.

Level 13 – Atonement Arrow: A devastating arrow attack that does high water damage at a long range.

Level 17 – Bat’s Eye: A water life steal attack that also reduces the range of all targets within the AOE attack. This skill is another excellent preemptive disabler before moving your Cra out of the attack range of the enemy.

Level 21 – Critical Shooting: Another active passive buff that permanently increases the critical hit rate of all your attacks.

Level 26 – Paralyzing Arrow: A medium water damage attack that also steals MP. This skill is great to have on hand when you need to replenish MP and a single target enemy is nearby.

Level 31 – Punitive Arrow: A medium earth damage attack that also increases the damage of subsequent attacks briefly.

Level 36 – Powerful Shooting: A passive damage buff that permanently increases the standard damage of all projectile attacks.

Level 42 – Plaguing Arrow: A useful attack that has low air damage but with the tradeoff being that this attack can be used with no line of sight.

Level 48 – Lashing Arrow: Another earth damage attack with an additional bonus of reducing the MP of the target.

Level 54 – Tormenting Arrow: Dual elemental attack with fire and ice attacking a target while requiring very little MP to do so.
