Reply To: Real Value of Ranged Brothers

>> After that they can switch to billhooks or other distance weapons to help out in melee combat. They are less efficient against armored enemies, but with crossbows they can help out a lot, so they stay relevant even in late game.
Why everyone is suggesting my ranged brothers to use melee weapons? Just what stats have you increased for your archers!? щ(ºДºщ)

1. Opposing melees may have closed in on you, and thus you may no longer use bows or crossbows. 2. You may have run out of ammunition.

Ideally, of course, your archers want to shoot, not melee. But don’t underestimate billhooks; they can do a number, and safely (since they are two tile weapons).
