    No, they do not work with archery.

    You cannot parry with a bow but you can use some of the bushido spells.

    Parry doesn't work with archery weapons.

    So parry and the higher parry chance from bushido will not benefit your archer.

    However, lots of archers still pack bushido for the other uses -

    1) DI bonus from honoring
    2) Lightning strike
    3) Confidence for quick and cheap hp recovery

    Momentum strike and honorable execution can also be used by archers, but their usefulness to archers are limited.

    Check out the "ABC Archer" template in the Warrior forums. (Not sure if it's good for PVP though)

    You could also just replace Parry with Hiding for some extra safety. :thumbup1:
