    Another (probably vain) attempt to think of something you guys haven’t…

    Since archers seem quite hard to use effectively, perhaps another possible benefit of using them could be that even missed shots have some impact on the morale of nearby enemies (for those factions that use morale).

    (Maybe archers seem hard to use effectively to me because I’m just not very good at it, but I seemed to do better in the combat demo when I didn’t bother with archers at all!)

    I believe archers also aren’t all that effective in the combat demo because of the prevalence of skeletons who have a 80% resistance to ranged weapons. It’s less of an issue in the actual game because there are more types of enemies, as well as some perks that make it easier to use ranged weapons even when firing at targets engaged in close combat.

    I’m afraid a hit to morale for being missed wouldn’t fit in well with how morale currently works in general.
