Archery Specialist

Archery specialists weaken their foes from a great distance. They typically begin combat by attempting to pin the most dangerous target, then follow up with a Rain of Arrows on a clumped group.

If the attack hits, it deals no damage and instead imparts the bow critical specialization effect. If the attack is a critical hit, the target must succeed at two separate Interact actions to pull the missile free.Point-Blank Shot The archery specialist ignores the penalty to their attack rolls from the volley trait.Rain of Arrows Two ActionsTwo Actions (flourish) The archery specialist fires several arrows at once, each aimed to land in a 10-foot burst within 60 feet. The archery specialist makes a longbow Strike and compares the attack roll result to the AC of all creatures in the burst. The specialist rolls damage only once and applies it to each creature hit. Rain of Arrows counts as three attacks for the archery specialist's multiple attack penalty.
