Sounds like what we discussed before. I still like the idea, and want it added asap

Is this is to increase the damage of arrows on opponents with the pierce armor to make it ineffective to attack?

Yes. It is basically an ignore armor effect.

Anyway it is also a way to make the basic archer more useful (it is the choice against orcs or undeads)

Not only orcs and undead, but also a few big units like sentinels and imperial knights.

Is this ready to vote? I know it needs a tech image, but I'd like to see how well it works against such things as imperial shielder and death knights.

Not yet because that would need the nee damage/resistance system.

We definitely need this

What about, untile the damage/resistance system is in, making it a special active skill?

cooldown 0 (so that fast archers can use it only once in the turn) and same range of the unit

you can choose to attack normally OR use the skill

1st level: 2 damage

2nd level: 3 damage

3d level: 4 damage

Those damage can't be reduced by nor armor nor avoided via spell resistance but can be dodged by dodge ranged

i don't like idea of this as special active skill like thing.

It would just be a temporary solution

Temporary could be fine, Maybe it's needs one cool down or two.

i still don't like this. also it must have no cooldown if as ability for quick archers/normal archers.
Fire archers i think must not be affected by this.

And also is it possible for range of ability to be affected by spells and range of unit himself?

Re: Magic arrows

I don't know but we can find some turnaround since they requires the archery techs, so we might basically give them a progressively increasing range or give a spell range stat to the archers.

Anyway I should check how this will scale with the aim skill (that was suggested for the same reason).

Re: Magic arrows

Why am i asking is because this skill must have same range as archer himself after any upgrade (even after stealing upgrade from humans)

I understand that and I think it is possible to find a way to do it

Fencing mastery

Melee version of magic arrow

3 levels

Elven melee units learn how to hit the weak spots on heavy armors and to aim to vital points

every level allows the melee units to increase their minimum damage by 1.

alternatively we might make every melee unit ignore a point of melee armor for every level but that would still make them deal 1 damage when facing extremely heavy armored opponents

Nice idea, most players use tank units in front of line, this would become more useful against them.

3 levels, did you mean 3 upgrades?

I think making it increase minimum damage is the best option. Ignoring armor is the same as raising power, except in rare cases where the target has lower than 3 armor and wouldn't die in one hit anyway. Besides, I'm already plotting synergy with balanced blades here. Swords dancer would deal minimum 12 damage by combining the two, and dodge most counterattacks. That makes it a credible threat to armored targets.

To be honest my starting idea was related to the sword dancer but later on I tought that could have been good to extend it to other melee units, at least the basic one.

Yes

3 techs

Hm. i really like this idea.
And this one can be made as ability because it noesn't need to take into account range because many units of elves this tech will affect are fighting in melee only.

I suppose it must be mentioned that swords dancer isn't going to benefit quite as much as we might think. Its whirlwind attack does bypass armor, but might hit allies, and only on the offensive. With this, all elf melee will deal at least 4 damage on counter too. That's also why an ability won't work so well, it needs to help counterattack damage as well as attack damage.

Side note: I'd package this with balanced blades. That's one I'd really like to see, but don't think I'll vote for by itself.

I would pack it with magic arrows tough.

Anyway I don't know about counter

I've merged the topic, lowered the cost and extended the effect of the armor piercing to all archers.

Both will become training related and will be produced at the right factory

I'll make an elven barracks (or training ground) image later

uhm we have barracks-like idea for elves and even with your image, @Alexander82

Yes, we discussed that a lot of time ago. The image, tough, isn't much fit since it is more like an outpost

Looks ready to me. I'd change my vote to it at this point if it were available.

I'd like to get @Stratego (dev) opinion one how to make it, first.

Once it is clear I can make it in no time.

I think we can solve a lot of the problems that elves have against heavy armored units (it will have a cost in terms of turns so I think it will be pretty balanced).

Coupled with aimed shot they will defintely have the best archers (especially on the damage/cost ratio) and an acceptable infantry.
