Hey, I'm new to archer class (not even 10), I'm used to the archer class from other games have either 1. A pet to tank for it or 2. Arrows/shots the keep the mobs at bay. I realize none of this really matters if you're in a group, but only when soloing/questing.
Looking at the skills I don't see any of the aforementioned abilities. Did I miss them? And if not, how well does an archer solo without either a pet or a slowing abilities?
