Strategy and Builds

The Risen Archer is the Archery variant of Risen units, and is capable of quite reasonable damage.

Some useful traits for Risen Archers are Bowmanship to remove penalties for attacking enemies in forests or on walls, or Challenger to improve damage dealt.

When not in the front-line and in a mostly Risen squad, the Vengeance trait is very useful for dealing extra damage to accumulate unlife to revive dead ally Risen units.

Warrior's Hubris is also very useful for counteracting their main weakness against magic damage.
