Training at the Center Tower

There is a ladder located at the center of the guild, which if you climb up you will find one of four Tower Advisors.

Climb the ladder to enter the training tower
Tower Advisor: Surrounding us are four towers.

Depending on your Range level they will suggest which the tower is most challenging for you.

Tower Advisor: As you're not very skilled, so I advise you to practice in the north tower.

If you are willingly to train for a long time, then it is suggested that you bring food, lobsters and up. Also be sure to bring either a longbow, or a shortbow on the longrange mode. There are four towers, and each one allows you to train on archers of different levels:

  • North - level 19
  • East - level 34
  • South - level 49
  • West - level 64

Each tower has three archers, and are respawned at around 20 to 30 seconds.

The Ranging Competition Activity

If you're bored, the guild has an Activity that you can play! The Competition Judge can be found in the southeast corner of the guild.

Talk to Competition Judge

Move your mouse of over one of the targets and click "Fire at target" to shoot an arrow. A screen will appear and display the points you earned from your last shot, the number of arrows you have left, and your current score.

Target View
  • Shots Left - You have 10 arrows (shots) to start with, and once you run out, the game ends.
  • Target - The center area displays the target, and the area which your last shot hit. In the above image, a bulls-eye was hit. It also shows the number of points you have earned from the last shot.
  • Score - This is your total score from the current game. You start with 0 points, and can earn up to 1,000 in total.

You will be rewarded archery tokens for the amount of points you get divided by 10. So, the maximum is 1000 (1000 / 10 = 100) points per game, giving 100 tickets. So, if you play the game 10 times with 1,000 points each of the game, you will receive 1,000 tickets! Not a bad deal, huh? For more information on this Activity, visit the Archery Competition guide.
