    Hello Sosarians,

    I have an Archer that uses neither bushido nor ninjitsu. The special move attacks for this Bow, both primary and secondary, require either bushido or ninjitsu.

    Was this as intended? Was this Bow which I like very much, intended to provide maximum benefit only to Archers using bushido or ninjitsu?

    If this was not as intended, or even if it was, could it be changed in the future to allow Archers of a more "original" template to use at least one of the two special moves (perhaps changing either its primary or secondary move to a different move)?

    I do not intend this post to reflect a rant or whine, not in the least. I simply found it odd that neither special move was available to what I suspect are still the majority of Archers (tho I may be dead wrong).

    The Horselord (Yumi) came out with the Samurai Edition expansion so I expect its highly likely that it was intended.

    The Yumi is a real-life Japanese archery weapon. In olden times they were made out of bamboo.
  4. i suggest putting 50 points of either ninj, or bush on your archer. and try out the specials.
    trust me on a yumi w hit spell or velocity, and using the specials can be very , very deadly!!!
