i see anyone talk that;night sentinel is the best archer
but i dont know, i see that there is other archer that can hit;multiple enemies with there special attack
and night sentinel can only hit 1.
maybe his 1 hit is stronger, but dont you prefer to hit multiple enemies with 1 special attack?
it is funny i am low lvl but i have green ranger and it make me a lot easy that she can hit 3 enemies with 1 special attack
i can buy night sentinel buy i dont know
what am i missing here?
why all prefer night sentinel?

        Here\'s the issue. Most multi hit archers, like demon hunter and green ranger, sacrifice damage for a multi-target attack. So now those heroes are going to do less damage, but hit more heroes. Why is this a bad thing? Because the damage is not enough to kill any hero outright, which means it will just feed rage. Night Sentinel can one-hit some off-tanks, and two hit main tanks. And even if he fails, he\'s only giving range to ONE enemy FRONTLINE hero, which means they\'re first ability usually isn\'t all that threatening to your team. Demon Hunter (And other multi hit archers) give rage to EVERYONE on the enemy team with their ultimates, and hence gives the enemy backline rage as well, which is TERRIBLE for your team.

I never liked NS myself since he can\'t touch anyone with any sort of dodge. As far as pure damage goes, NB is just better (imo) since she can drop a front line tank like NS can, while killing a back row hero and has a great hit rate. Still people are in love with his potential for high damage. That aside, he\'s a pure single target damage hero. Comparing him to AoE archers does not make sense since they are different. AoE heroes work best with other AoE heroes since having one is just free rage for the enemy. NS being single target makes him easier to fit into balance and offence teams. A hero like Green Archer is difficult to create a team with since the main reason to abuse AoE is to hit back row heroes as opposed to killing tanks first.

Completely agree with you there! I forgot to mention that heroes like demon hunter should ONLY be used in either an AoE damaging comp or a backline damaging comp, like you said.

    At what level? At level 84 he still misses my Nereida (who does not even get dodge runes..) more than half the time. Pretty much no chance to hit my Valkyrie. I would assume dodge from a decent defence emblems would beat any hit bonus he gets from an attack emblem.

I also prefer nb but saying ns cannot hit heroes with dodge is incorrect.

My Sentinel has 1.2k hit rate with emblems, 1.8k hit first 2 rounds, destroys tanks so...
However, I do agree that other archers are better simply for the reason that post awakening, female DPS are the most common in the backline and it allows for an easier way to focus on emblems.
