A marksman and crossbow expert in life, the Bone Arbalist served as part of the regiment of honorable and loyal soldiers who served and defended our family in ages long since passed. Standing tall on the bastions and battlements, they would keep an ever watchful eye out for foreign invaders and occasional troublemakers. For their service, they earned a place among the others who fought and died for our family within the crypts of the Ruins.

However, their eternal peace was rudely interrupted when they were forcibly awoken and drafted back into duty by the foul magics of the Necromancers. Now this skeletal archer stalks the halls of the Ruins, ready to stop any and all trespassers with a well-placed crossbow bolt.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

When encountered, the Bone Arbalest will always spawn on the third and/or fourth rank. While in the rear ranks he will use his Quarrel ability to snipe your heroes in the third or fourth ranks. This attack is quite powerful on its own and has a good chance to Crit. However, this attack is even more lethal to heroes that have been marked. Be especially careful if the Arbalest is joined by a Cultist Acolyte on Veteran & Champion levels.

A good strategy is to take advantage of the Arbalest's low move resistance and bring him to the front ranks. While in the first or second rank he will use his Bayonet Jab ability, which is substantially weaker but does move him back one rank. Additionally, this attack can only target the heroes in the first two ranks, who usually have higher defenses.
