Archery is the skill involved in ranged attacks executed with a bow. There are two categories of bows, Shortbows and Longbows. Shortbows tend to be lower-damage, lower-delay weapons that sometimes have bonuses to ranged accuracy. Longbows are higher-damage and higher-delay weapons that sometimes carry with them boosts to ranged attack. Some bows also have various other bonus stats, making them useful for more than just their ranged attack capability.
