Windweavers are a first eraNaturearcher. Being one of the only archer units for the nature element, they come in handy when backed by melee units and Shamans. Their Multishot ability allows them to shoot twice, if a target is available near their original one. They are considered one of the best archers to place on Walls. They do 5 damage per second, except when Multishot doubles that amount. They are the most expensive and highest-damaging of the four affinities' basic archers; they are, however, the only of the four that does not upgrade its damage, so two of them for 140 power can be outgunned by three
The Windweavers work nicely in Nature PvE play, where in combination with the Shaman, it creates one of the most survivable and effective first era assault forces, especially since their three upgrades increase their health by 108 in total, taking them higher than Forsaken to be the second highest of the basic archers, second only to Master Archers.
