Archero Abilities List

I’m including all of the official descriptions of each ability, and I’m also going to be trying to include a brief bit of extra information on each of the abilities. Some abilities aren’t unlocked until after you complete certain chapters, so you might see some listed here that you haven’t seen yet! If you have one of the official descriptions that I’m missing, please let me know in the comments.

It’s a very small amount of health, and is much worse later in the game.

Similar to Bolt, but two orbs circle around you and they deal lightning damage to enemies that are hit by the orbs.

Summon a Lightning Sword to attack enemies

This works with all of your weapons, if you have piercing, the weapon will travel through the enemy and bounce of the wall and come back.

Chilling Blast

Crit Aura

Increased critical chance once in a while.

Crit Master

Critical chance and critical strike damage increased!

Dark Touch

Place a 1s time bomb on struck target, explodes dealing 90% of modified damage (atk boosts) in an aoe of around.

Death Bomb

Need description

Enemies when killed explode, dealing damage to nearby enemies. This is a pretty small radius, so it’s hard to hit them with it.

Death Nova

Need description

Enemies when killed will fire out projectiles from their body and deal damage to enemies who are struck by them.

Diagonal Arrows

There’s no real description for this, but it fires two additional projectiles to your left and right diagonal. This is based on your weapon, it doesn’t only fire arrows.
