Quick, stealthy scouts are modeled after the historical Welsh longbowmen first seen in the Isles circa 633 CE through the heyday of English longbowmen in the Hundred Years War. As such, they are very proficient with the English longbow and smaller hunting bows. They are also skilled in melee combat, though not able to stand toe-to-toe in the infantry line next to their more heavily armored shield mates.

When hunting solo, scouts often perform the duties of foresters, using stealth to get in good position to shoot their prey, and then their bow skills to severely wound it. If the arrows don't strike true, they are able to dispatch the wounded beast with their sword.

When hunting with a group, scouts serve as an advance reconnaisance, and bait for ambushes. After finding their prey and leading it back to the hunting party, scouts help in the fight either by standing back with the healers and casters and shooting arrows though the melee, or by entering melee with agile, directed blows from their sword. Very often they are assigned the duties of protecting the healers and casters should their prey turn from the main battle line and charge the supporting divisions.

In the wars, scouts use all these skills practiced in peacetime to perform as advanced scouts for the army. Their role is to locate the enemy while remaining undetected, accurately report back to their commanders the size, composition, command-and-control structures, and artillery (siege engines and magic) of the enemy, and cause what disruption they can. Many scouts group with infiltrators and minstrels to form stealthy scouting groups that hunt enemy stealth groups. They are expected to participate in large battles by reducing enemy numbers with massed archery, disrupting magical and mundane artillery, and defending Albion's support classes.

Tactics

PVE

Playstyle for PVE for a Scout is fairly simple. Always remember to have Invigoration pots beforehand, if you don't have a bot, then you should get some Buff Pots as well.

When going into any PVE zone, Scouts are pretty tough on taking many monsters. Usually when I need to PVE, I will start off by Stealthing and close in on range to my target. Once I am within range of a Critical Shot, I will then shoot the mob. By this time, the mob should have aggro on you and should be moving in close to you. After you have used Critical Shot on the mob, you will then be able to use either Point Blank Shot or Standard shot, depending on the range of the mob. Usually you will be able to start shooting instantly with Point Blank.

If the mob is in melee combat with you and you are level 50, you will be able to slam the target for 5 seconds, thus, giving you one more shot to hit the target OR it gives you 5 seconds to run away at a distance, so you can get a few more shots in. The latter being what I would suggest, as long as it is not a good distance away from groupmates. If you are solo, then by all means, kite(run away with it still aggroing) as you can, then turn around and start shooting it. If you MUST engage the target in melee, then you will need to use a Style I like to use, Reflection, this will keep a style going onto the target and damaging the target as much as possible, until your next slam. Scouts are simply known as range classes. They are meant to be at a distance, so melee is always their weakness.
