    Devs can you up the amount of arrows these archers carry. this is the 4th time now i have ran out of amo down there leaving me out of the chance to get loot. Whats the point in putting in a creature that is unable to finish the job. You need to up the amount by 30-50% more arrows

    Noted.
    Just out of curiosity, can you actually give them arrows to top them up? I have a vague (and possibly inaccurate) memory of being able to give arrows to an allured ratman.

    What should be occurring is that as soon as they run out, more are magically created in their backpacks. Thanks for the report, we'll have a look at it!

    Try giving him a lesser amount. When stolen they usually give like 5-12 arrows or some low amount, and they stop firing. But give the arrows back and they start right back up again. Not sure if they have to be the same arrows he had or not, but I've never run out in an entire boss run unless they were stolen.

    Glad it is finally getting looked into seeing as it was posted in the bug tracking forum on Sept 5th with no response.

    Yes, you just drag/drop arrows onto your "skeletrex" and it'll continue to shoot the bow.

    and the same goes for the Centuar's on the "good" side.

    Dont know about the Sileni but I had a skeletrex run out of arrows and it just stood there until I got it closer to Andros then it quite happily got out a sword and went close up and personal.

    The only 1 time iv seen it run out of arrows was on a solo run so i think this is a good thing as its easy to solo the boss with an archer pet by teleporting the the high ground and the boss and wisp just sit there while your pet kills it [absolutly no risk but lots of reward]

    If there gona fix the arrow issue i think they should also stop it from being soloable my 1 person with an archer pet.

    All winkle wants is to be able to solo the boss on his own and get all the rewards for doing............... NOTHING

    Id say fix the bug to be able to solo it before giving the people who are abusing the bug more arrows so they can solo it.

    Ah Thunder way to drag the cat out of the Bag, but agreed with you, make ledges not visible first, or another solution.

    I find it hard to believe that a single archer, even on the ledge, would do enough damage before the doom spell to kill andros. The times my archer has run out of arrows were when there was only two of us... both with level 15 pets and we were not able to complete the boss in time because the archer ran out of arrows.... highly doubt a lone archer would do enough damage solo.

    Use a different minion IMO. Skels suck anyhow.

    From what I can tell based on the damage I see coming off the bosses, they are one of the top DPS... so long as they have arrows. They certainly can't act as a tank or a discorder, but with a group of a couple players I think they are excellent for the boss. Now, training them with their ^&(* AI is a real pain in the ^%&^!

    Well if you can solo it with a single archer then your doing better than me. I am going down ina group of three normaly. I have tryed to solo it with a few types of pets but none are able to dish out enough dammage before the doom spell kicks in including an archer who never ran out of arrows all the way through.

    I have just ran out of arrows again on my archer, i tryed putting arrows on it again, 5,10,50,100 but none worked.

    IMHO the archer does more dammage than the rest of the pets so i stand a better chance of getting an arti. But they are low on hit points and are a real pain to train.

    Just to clear the last point up about archers on ledges. 99% of the time we do andros in the middle of the island, the other 1% he chases someone and runs off the island, which is a real pain.
