Goblin have very high ranged defense, while 53/49 skill is very low for an archer. I’m pretty sure everything works as intented.
I agree. If you had the ranged debuff it would show a little icon for it. Did you open your inventory and check his actual stats? As nope said, goblins have really high ranged defense and you will need 80-90 ish ranged skill to hit them reliably.
