As a soldier you want to get close to enemy archers.
That is not the case when fighting the Maraketh.
close range bonus apply. For the range-dependent effects, bonus damage is based on the target's distance from the totem making the attacks. For general information on how totems function, see the totem page.

Bow: Because of the Bow keyword, Siege Ballista requires that a bow is equipped in order to be cast.

Attack: Siege Ballista fires ranged attacks that scale off of base attack damage, and thus scale directly off of the caster's equipped bow and other attack stats. Siege Ballista fires at 50% of the attack speed of the equipped bow. Siege Ballista attacks can be evaded.
