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

Southron Massacre

Southron Archers being attacked by Rangers in Harondor.

Southron Archers are archers that spawn in Near Harad, 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 .


These archers will attack any player or NPC with a negative Near Harad alignment and attempt to shoot it down. They may spawn mounted on a camel. They are slightly more rare than Southron Warriors.


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