Any playable bow cavaliers?

Recommended Posts

The title speaks for itself, kind of puzzled by the lack of playable bow cavaliers in this game (if there's any). They could've used the opportunity to add some nomads at the previous FE7 summoning focus. (well, nomads and bow cavaliers are technically the same). So, any ideas why they haven't added a playable bow cavalier?

Bow cavaliers will be incredibly OP, judging by the training tower examples.

Wolf, Sedgar, Roberto, Midir, Lester, Deimne, (Andrey, Scipio), Selphina, Robert, Sue, Sin, Dayan, Rath, (Uhai), Hayden, Astrid.
That's it for mounted archers in the games, right? Counting only base classes, of course.

yes, i think. they should make them with a decrease in base stats or growths so they aren't too OP.

Give me Rath or Wolf and I will be a happy fangirl... ish... xD

Those are two characters I particularly want, though I won't say no to Midir or Shin ^.^

There also aren't many playable bow cavaliers in general, I suppose. The only ones I can think of are Astrid, Rath, Sue, and Shin. And three of those are Elibe.

I literally listed all the playable horse archers (and three unplayable ones) in the first response to the OP ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

(except the reclass-able and alternative promoted people)

It's been there since an hour ago, actually. That's all fine anyway.

Oh. Well I still somehow missed your list entirely, but unintentionally, so again, sorry about that.

The King of Frelia, Hayden, is a Ranger at base, but since he's Creature Campaign only idk if he counts.

A little humor, i love how Hayden is described as a 'Sage King' while his base class is a Ranger XD.

I don't see how they'd be any more OP than mage cavaliers. 

I honestly don't see any future bow knights coming close to Reinhardt's current level of ridiculousness as it is.

Good point, right here. Hmm.
I just had a quick thought about brave bow Midir/Lester but Def usually higher than Res.

I think mages in general are better ranged units that archers because a lot of the stronger units have low res and a lot people go for -res boon/banes.  They can also get crazy amounts of damage thanks to the blade tomes.    

But mounted archers do have the advantage in that they could inherit brave bows, while brave tomes are restricted to Reinhardt and Olwen.  Also aside from raven tomes they don't have to worry about the weapon triangle.

looking at the Bow Cavaliers from the Training Tower (Lv 38 and 3*), they have 47 Atk + 13 from the Silver Bow, which is quite high. Below average speed, at 16. and equally average Def and Res at 21 and 22 so yes, they can be OP from just their stat. (Again, this is an enemy from the Training Tower) . Let alone if they have skill like Vantage or Close Counter. If they going to add playable bow cavaliers, they need to decrease the base stats or growths.

Due to how Heroes's stat system works, it's almost guaranteed that playable mounted archers will have a 5-star level-40 stat total around 145.

30 HP
75 Attack
20 Spd
15 Def
15 Res

I don't see a problem here.

That's 155. You're 10 over. That's a problem.

Seems plausible
