There's your problem. It's not supposed to be just you shooting at me. If you have just 4 archers shooting at me, 3 arrows each and I'm meat. In a server with a 120 and around 58 on both sides at all times, it shouldn't be a problem. And honestly, I'd say 12 arrows is a bit too much. Maybe 8 max if you had a strong bow. You honestly think HA are being helped at all atm or even in the new patch? Maybe pure archers need to be nerfed, but not a HA. Ask any HA and they will tell you the same.

lol, MoneyShot WAS a HA.   :rolleyes:  Why do you think he only went up to strongbow.  And the argument that it SHOULD take multiple people to kill ONE other player build is a failed one.  If so I want my 1her no shield to require 8 people to put down, working together, all attacking simultaneously.  I think that's fair considering the skill-level required opposed to riding an armored horse and shooting people from range.
And I should be nice or polite to anyone.... why exactly?

Sure, I see your perspective. But think about what kind of armor a HA is wearing. 2 arrow hits and u'd be dead. You know what I mean since u have a HA. I think it's pretty fair that HA can shoot from range considering how slowly it takes to build one because you can never get enough xp/gold from being far away from the battle.

Most HA's are in khergit elite armor, on cataphracts.  Heavy armor, on armored horse is pretty damned good armor.  Sure you can go less if you want to, but that just means you're either:
A:  Taking a downgrade in capability for the lulz
B:  Haven't built your HA properly
C:  Are still low level.

*EDIT:  To clarify though, I don't think HA's should be impossible to play, however I think they SHOULD be around where khergits are in native.  Light armor, on unarmored horses with good maneuverability.  Khergit and strongbows with current x-bow standard accuracy while moving.  None of this single dot (cause the 3 of em are overlapping) sniper accuracy in heavy armor on a tank and able to ignore a dozen arrows because of it, regardless of level.  That would be quite a bit more balanced and require more skilled play from them, even though (and you have to admit) the playstyle is the warband equivalent of thugs doing drive-by's.*

Actually I'm lvl 29 and I'm still struggling with putting my HA build together. It's not becuz I fked my stats, it's because it takes much longer for a HA build than say infantry.

*EDIT: Agreed. I'm completely on the same page as you now.

My crossbowman:

Using a balanced heavy crossbow and a heavy long voulge, padded leather armour and stuff (saving for another retirement so I can get the crossbow up to masterwork).

And my main, which is a bit of everything:

More or less the only heirloom I'm using on it is the masterwork nordic champion, although sometimes I ditch that and just use a polearm.

And the spearman:

I've got a tempered warspear on it, although these day I'm actually using a scythe from horseback with peasant clothes  :lol:

There is a lot of hate about the HAs but I dont think we are more over than a 2H heavy tincan for exaple our work is annoy more than kill people. Maybe is just we cant defend us and make the same noise in the forums than other classes.

All the different WPFs are because I went for a diffferent build type each retirement. I think it was thrower with 1 hander (no-shield); then just a one hander (no shield); then archer with one hander, then archer with two hander, which is what I am now. =D

Attribute opinion: I get 10 str to start, for:heavy lance and awesome pajama armor. Then it's agi up to 18 for courser. Str up to and maxed at 18, and im prob just going to keep putting the rest into Agi for weapon master.

WPF: some 1 handed(elite scim works decent at 75 points =)   ), great against lightly armored or 1 handers.
         mostly polearms for lance/bec/iron staff.  Long hafted blade is another decent polearm for starters; only 10 str required, its pretty fast and 150some length

Skills: First off, I've only used the "convert 2 skill points to 1 attribute point" once. I don't recall when, but I will hang onto a skill point or 2 and wait until i hit the next tier(12,15,18...) and dump the skill points then. I personally don't think converting points is a good idea. As for Ironflesh, I think it's definitely worth it.  There are tons of times where I survive fights with a sliver of hp left, where clearly the extra hp, 12 now, saved my live.

Heirloomed Items: Balanced elite scimitar, Heavy courser...+3 speed for scim as balanced helps balance my 75wpf in 1handed and the extra 10 hp for my courser more than a 10% increase.  If this patch every comes out and they have champion horses I might regret not getting my courser up to spirited...
