Archers are a ranged class in Shaiya. And when at close range, very close range actually, you get damage penalties. You do nearly half damage when the target is right next to you. So it's important to stay back a bit so this doesn't happen. The technique for doing this is called kiting, which is just a glorified way to say, run around. This came up in another topic so I'll pretty much just paste what I said there.
There is two techniques that you can use.
Technique 1: I attack a mob and if it gets close and it's not dead (then it certainly is near dead). So I use the mouse to click the ground slightly behind where I am standing which causes me to run to that spot. after which I press 1 (which I have normal attack set to) or some other skill button to attack again and I repeat if necessary when the mob gets close again. I'm not trying to avoid damage with this move, just trying to maintain the distance a bit so I still hit for full damage.Kiting doesn't have to be any harder or more complex than that. Press 1 to shoot, click the ground a bit behind me and repeat.
Technique 2: If I know for sure a mob will not be dead or near dead when it gets to me, or that it will hit me very hard I use a preemptive kiting strategy. I attack a few times and before it reaches me I click on a spot farther to the side of me and I continue shooting as I click my way to the side. The reason this works is because while I start moving as the mob is still running to me, the mob is usually not smart enough to adjust for my movement. Thus it keeps running to where I was when I started attacking him. But alas I am no longer there. Still he tags up to that spot before turning and then coming to where I now am. If you pause or slow certain mobs sometimes readjust and go straight for you sometimes, but most of the time it works. It's useful to buy some more time, but it's not often needed since now almost all mobs except bosses are pretty easy to take down before they reach me. And if they are not I simply find ones that are rather the spend extra time and energy with excessive kiting techniques.
Kiting is mainly about keeping full damage, not necessarily preventing yourself from being hit. Except when soloing bosses or mini bosses, where you may want to run very far away, stun them and shoot until they get close, then repeat, because some of those mobs hit very hard and pots have recharge times. You may need to kite like a defender in some of those situations (run around not attacking for the sole purpose of letting the blessing regenerate your HP as your pots are cooling down) But against normal mobs just a little inching backup while shooting is usually enough to maintain that distance. Keep in mind though that a mob will only stray so far from its spawn point so you can't run too far back or it will reset. If that is the case you will have to inch sideways and then double back towards the spawn point when kiting to keep it from reseting. But again, if you find you have to kite too much just try to find easier mobs and kill faster and thus level up faster.
