Bowmen, also known as Archers, are a part of Explorers and are the characters that wield Bows and Crossbows. One of the five class archetypes, they use long-range attacks and are capable dealing splash damage. Their strength in long-range combat allows them to defeat creatures much stronger than them earlier than other classes with their ability to effectively stave off foes no matter their size. On the other side of that coin, however, they are one of the classes that have the lowest HP. While not as low as the Magician's, their HP points generally don't compare to that of a Pirate's or a Warrior's. Like the rest of the Explorers, Bowmen have the unique opportunity of choosing a further specification within their job advancement once they reach level 30.

When you reach level 10 as a Beginner, aspiring Bowmen can go to the Bowman Instructional School in Henesys and talk to Athena Pierce, who will advance you to an Archer. You will be given a HP and MP boost, as well as a basic bowman weapon.
Once an Archer reaches level 30, he/she can return to the Bowman Instructional School and talk to Athena Pierce. She will give you a choice between Hunter or Crossbowman, and will allow you into another map with the task to collect 30 Dark Marbles from the Stone Golems inside. Once the Dark Marbles have been obtained, return to Athena Pierce to advance to either a Hunter or Crossbowman, depending on your choice.
Upon reaching level 60, you will receive a lightbulb on the side from Athena Pierce. After speaking to her, you must head to the Chief's Residence in El Nath and speak with Rene. She will send you off to defeat Athena Pierce's Clone. First, you will need to access Ice Valley II, which can be accessed via two methods:
- You can either walk to the right until you reach Cold Field II, and then keep taking the top portal until you reach Ice Valley II.

Once there, walk to the right portal to enter the Dimensional World, and defeat Athena Pierce's Clone inside to collect the Black Charm. Return to Rene with the quest item in hand for a classy new job title and a new set of flashy skills.
