"Bow-wielding hunter. Can handle close-range but vulnerable to magic."
— Character Creation

The Hunter is one of the classes in Dark Souls.

Hunters can be used to specialize in bows, thanks to their high initial dexterity stat, but all of their other stats are fairly average. This means they’ll also favor high dexterity weapons such as spears and rapiers. Their low equip load means they can roll fast and evade well, so using quicker weapons to strike and retreat is a good idea. Using magic could be a struggle early on, but any other weapon is realistic with only a few level ups. You should weaken enemies from range early on with the short bow, and then finish them with a fast strike, but be mindful of your supply of arrows.
