Poacher vs Loyalist Bowman vs Elvish Archer

Which should be used when?

I really fail to see why you would ever have to choose between the three, but I'll humor you: I think you should almost always use the elvish archer, who has a better damage output, more moves and a vastly preferable movetype. Also his level ups are much more interesting. Although there could be an argument made for the poacher if you use time of day right and there is a fair bit of swamp about...

I like the Orcish Archer. He levels pretty quick and has fire damage, which comes in handy when fighting skellies and especially ghosts. (SCNR)
I have a cunning plan.
