It was, as I remember, just such a dart as the Southrons use.

–The Houses of Healing, The Return of the King

Southron Archers are archers that spawn primarily in the Southron Coasts, and are allied with the Near Harad faction. They are similar to Southron Warriors, except for the fact that they use a bow and arrows instead of Haradric melee equipment. As with all Archer units, they wear their Southron Shield on their back instead of in their left hand like their warrior counterparts. They wear Haradric armour or a Haradric Turban.

BehaviourEdit

Southron Massacre

Southron Archers being attacked by Rangers in Harondor.

These archers will attack any player or NPC with a negative Near Harad alignment and attempt to shoot it down. They are about half as common as Southron Warriors.

DropsEdit

Southron Archers commonly drop arrows and bones, and on rare occasion will drop their bow or some of the armour they're wearing.

Advantages and DisadvantagesEdit
