Analysis of Top Artillery Build (From Korea)

DNB: I would like to emphasize that this build is extracted from the Korea event, and it is not meant to be an exact 100% good skill build. As you can see from the title, it is an analysis.

Before going into the analysis, I will show you the new 2nd advancement skills for Sniper. Credits to chaose5 from MMOsite forum.

Analysis of Top Sniper Build (From Korea)

DNB: I would like to emphasize that this build is extracted from the Korea event, and it is not meant to be an exact 100% good skill build. As you can see from the title, it is an analysis.

Before going into the analysis, I will show you the new 2nd advancement skills for Sniper. Credits to chaose5 from MMOsite forum.

Bowmaster/Sharpshooter Heraldry Plates/Crests

What are the suitable Heraldry Plates/Crests for Bowmaster/Sharpshooter? As you know there are both Stats-based Heraldry and Skills-based Heraldry. I would not be talking about ALL the plates available, but just what I consider is good for Bowmasters, and some other possible alternatives.

Note: I do not have the names of all the Heraldry Plates from DN SEA. I will be using my own translation from the CN/TW servers. Nonetheless, I will explain what the plate does, so you will roughly get the idea which Heraldry Plate it is.

Firstly, let’s talk about Stats-based Heraldry. The most important few plates would be

  1. Fatal – Increases your Critical Chance by a certain amount. I believe all attack classes will use this plate as one of their 8 choices. Critical ignores defense, so that is what makes Critical so important. Being an Agility class, this Heraldry amplifies the Critical stat by a larger amount compared to other classes.
  2. Physical Attack/Magic Attack – Depending on the build you are using for your Bowmaster, pick one of them. This amplifies your attack stat by a huge margin. Being Hybrid, you can choose to use them both at the same time, but Read the rest of this entry

Guide on Bowmaster/Sharpshooter Skill Build

Welcome to the Guide on Bowmaster/Sharpshooter Skill Build!

This would be a general Hybrid skill build for all Magic Bowmasters. As this picture below shows what skills I would add in my opinion, I have used up all the Skill Points available. Nonetheless, I would explain all the arguable skills in the discussion.

Physical skills tend to have longer cooldown time, while Magic skills have shorter cooldown time.

Even though the Revolutionary Ballista (Magic Lv40 skill) is being added and Extension Arrow is being levelled high in this skill build, you can add the Pinpoint Shot (Physical Lv40 skill) and level Charged Shot high  if you intend to go the Physical build.

For pure Physical or Magic builds, the other type of skill tree will be ignored to focus on dealing a high pure damage.

Advantages of Hybrid(more to Magic) Build

  • More spammability of skills to consistently generate high combos.
  • In the upcoming 2nd job patch (Artillery), a new skill will amplify Physical attacks for a certain duration. This Read the rest of this entry
