1.The Crossbow Explorer
The Overview

A crossbow explorer is a sub class of the explorers that concentrate on hard hitting attacks that deal high damage.With high damaging skills along with a good evasion rate and critical output ability,this is one of the classes to be truly feared.Like all explorers they gain access to abilities that allow them to make money easily.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
-High Damage Output
-Range is always a plus
-Skills hit multiple times

Cons:
-Damage is spread out when fighting more then 1 enemy
-Less Defense than a Dagger Explorer due to not having a shield
-Do not have good battle-related buffs.
-Can not support allies outside of dealing damage/treasure hunting buff.
-Hp is subpar
-Skills cost more MP then other branches of other explorers
