One point per arrow, high score wins.); and (3) An Tirean Skeet (Archers get 12 combat arrows to shoot at armored fighters. Torso and head are kill shots. Scoring: 20 yds = 2 points, 30 yds = 3 points, 40 yds = 4 points)
Overall scoring: 20 points for 1st, 19 points for 2nd, etc. In each trial, the highest total score wins. In the event of a tie, a string shoot will be shot to determine the winner.
