The Marksmanship attribute reflects a ranger's skill when using a bow. This is not a primary attribute and may be used by secondary rangers.

Guild Wars description[]

Marksmanship increases the damage you do with bows and your chance to inflict a critical hit when using a bow. Many Ranger skills, especially bow attack skills, become more effective with higher Marksmanship.

General description[]

Marksmanship directly relates to the weapon 'bow' and skills required by a bow.

Marksmanship is a requirement for meeting a bow's max damage.

The Marksmanship attribute increases the damage and interrupt effectiveness on an enemy through Marksmanship skills.

As well as increasing the critical rate, the Marksmanship attribute will add hidden damage by changing the Effective Damage Level (EffDL) if certain conditions are met. For further information about this, see Damage Level.
