Notes[]

  • Unlike other items, it directly adds 20% of the overall damage of bows and repeaters; in other words, it multiplies with other damage boosts (including the damage boost from Shroomite Headgear and Magic Quiver).
  • Despite the tooltip saying it increases only the arrow's damage, it increases the combined damage of the bow or repeater and the ammo.[1]
  • On Desktop version Desktop and Mobile version Mobile, it also affects the Stake Launcher.

History[]

  • Desktop 1.4.0.1:
    • Increased duration of the buff from 4 minutes to 8 minutes.
    • Now also affects the Stake Launcher.
  • Desktop 1.2.3: One can now see the Archery buff's damage bonus in the item tooltips when it is up.
  • Desktop 1.0.6: Now boosts arrow speed and damage by 20% instead of 15%.
