Red Arrow 8-12 Damage
The Archer Lord is an enemy found in Hexen II.
They are much stronger than the Knight Archer and fortunately rarer, and have the ability to duck to avoid projectiles fired at them.
Archer Lords, much like their little brothers, launch arrows within 1 to 2 seconds. However Lord Archers always fire the more damaging red arrows. Furthermore they have better aiming, able to fire at where the player is going to be instead of where he/she is at the time of firing. With more health, this puts the Archer Lord in another class compared to the Knight Archer.
The recommended weapon is the Sword as the fight will be long enough as it is without the weaker Gauntlets. Depending on the situation is may even be required to use the Double-Bladed Axe.
When fighting one Archer Lord, it is important to realize that cover is better than dodging. While it is possible to fight in the open, it is very difficult to avoid some damage over the course of the fight. This is thanks to the Archer Lord's accuracy and health.
In order to avoid as much damage as possible, it is best to take cover and move in for a single hit before returning to cover. While this will result in a fight that can last upwards of 30 seconds, it is worth it to come out with minimal damage and Mana usage.
