    Oh boy here we go another sniper thread amirite but this time it's mine, I've never posted any build threads before, this will probably be my first, and only one as well, since it's the only character I really enjoy playing. Anyway we all know snipers have fallen out of place in the "dps" playing field since spammers have come forth and eaten proration, but just because snipers aren't the "most" powerful any more, they still stand tall as one of the strongest dps builds out there. Anyway enough of that, lets get into the build.

    First off, you WILL notice similarities between Precaria's famous "Ultimate Sniper" build and my own, but that's to be expected, since my build started out as a mirror of Precaria's. I've since tweaked it to fit my own playstyle, and I fully enjoy it.

    Requirements:
    - Get all the emblems boi
    - Be really cool

    Stats:
    DEX: 255
    CRIT: 24
    STR: 144

    Shot Skills level 4
    Power Shot - 5
    Moeba shot - 1
    Bullseye - 5
    Arrow Rain -5
    Snipe - 10
    Cross Fire - 10
    Shot Mastery - 10
    Sneak attack - 10
    Long Range - 10
    Quick Draw - 10
    Decoy Shot - 10

    Magic Skills level 3
    Magic: Arrows - 5

    Magic: Javelin - 5
    Magic: Lances - 5
    Magic: Impact - 7
    Magic: Finale - 1

    Survival Skills level 2
    Safe Rest - 5
    HP Boost - 10
    Short Rest - 5
    MP boost - 10


    Battle Skills level 3
    Attack UP - 10
    Whack - 10
    Critical UP - 10
    Intimidating Power - 10


    Dual Sword Skills
    Dual Sword Mastery - 5
    Reflex - 1

    Mononofu Skills
    Bushido - 5
    Two-handed - 5
    Meikyo Shisui - 5
    Kairiki Ranshin - 10

    Priest Skills level 1
    Holy Fist - 1

    Now for the fun part, the combo section. I've capped my combo points! I use different combos for different situations, so keep this in mind.

    Combo point training combos:
    Mp Cost: 1 - Moeba Shot > Impact (save) > Snipe (smite) > Holy Fist (cons)
    Moeba shot : 100% damage, Snipe: 90% damage
    The most simple and fastest 1mp snipe combo out there right now, you can use it against annoying bosses who use lots of aoe attacks, but it doesn't do that great of damage. I personally don't use this one often, if ever, but it's good for beginners who need to train combo points or simply want to use an easy snipe combo.

    Mp Cost: 1 - Moeba Shot > Kairiki (save) > Impact (cons) > Snipe (smite) > Holy fist (cons)
    Moeba shot: 100% damage, Snipe: 110% damage, war cry atk buff
    Upgrade of the first combo, with war cry added for atk boost and whack chance, and does a bit more damage too. This one would be useful to continue training your combos after using the first combo for awhile.

    Old combo:
    Mp Cost: 1 - Moeba shot > Arm Break (save) > reflex (cons) > War Cry (swift) > Impact (cons) > Crossfire (smite)
    Moeba Shot: 100% damage, Cross Fire: 150% damage, War Cry atk buff
    This combo is used to start charging your Crossfire, make sure to manually cast sneak attack before casting this combo to prevent large amounts of aggro being generated by arm break. Try and use this combo after someone else in the party has taken aggro, otherwise you'll end up with it and lose all of your charges on crossfire. Use the secondary combo to dps while crossfire is charging then use crossfire manually to unleash your charges.


    New combos I am currently using:
    Mp Cost 5: Moeba Shot > Crossfire (smite) > Magic: Finale (smite)
    Crossfire: 150% damage
    Mp Cost: 4 - Impact > Snipe (smite) > Magic: Finale (smite)
    Snipe: 150% damage

    The strongest, fastest combo for snipers, hits hard and fast for a high mp cost. I have this as my secondary combo.

    Mp Cost: 1 - Reflex > Kairiki Ranshin (save) > Decoy Shot (cons)
    This combo is to set up Decoy Shot, this will essentially double your AMPR, do a little extra damage, as well as add a few extra hits to Crossfire.

    Equipment!
    To hit hard you need stronk equips, The stuff I use is as follows:
    3rd Anniv Bow VII @136 (Tyrant Machina/Gwaimol) (+S)
    Atk7%
    Critical Damage +16
    Critical Rate +16
    Critical Rate +16%
    Hp regen-7% dodge-7%*
    *(you can use mp regen -7 instead)


    You can swap out the sub-weapon for pretty much any arrow, but if you have the chance, use elemental arrows! They increase your damage like crazy if you use them right. You can also use Chimera Arrow to increase your crit rate even more, or Evil Beast arrow to increase attack a ton. Just make sure to stay in long range (8m+)

    Any armor will work for you, but if you have some money, you can add these stats to pretty much anything.
    Mozt Armor (Ornlarf/Super Death Mushroom)
    Critical Damage +7%
    Critical Damage +16
    Critical Rate +16
    Critical Rate +16%
    Matk-7, Accuracy -7
    (You can substitute this 2-slotted garb with a one-slotted garb and Iconos and save money by not using ornlarf, and you can use super death mushroom instead of Ifrid as well to save some spina.) I would recommend Ifrid if you want more mp, and iconos for survivability.

    Shaved Ice Hat (Guignol/York)
    Critical Rate +20
    Cdmg+2%
    Fire Resistance -11%
    You can also use a Gothic Hat or Beast Collar, these add +15 crit rate, so you'll be a little lower on the crit rate side.

    Dexterity Talisman IV (Tapir/Guignol)
    Max Mp +500
    Dex +8

    Why bow?
    Over 100% effective crit rate, rarely see a white hit unless the boss has critical resist, Snipes still hitting over 200k, ailments inflicted left and right, good aspd, good stability, all around powerful on all ends.

    Eats 10% hp per cast, has short range from Javelin, and is only usable with bow (@_@)
    Do you use this combo? It seems risky and difficult to use

    Sunrise arrow can be used by bowgun (@-@")
    Also 8m from javelin can be compensated for its insta cast.
    My Long range self prorate combo if i remade my old sniper:-
    Moeba/arrows + smoke(save) + javelin(swift) + war cry(cons) + impact(cons) + snipe(smite) + hf(swift)
    Yeah if done from long range with moeba as starter impact wont hit so snipe wont exactly be fully prorated but this combo is like much faster.

    War cry is instant cast now, it's a perfect save buffer and gives free atk, don't need it higher level since I only use it to eat up some of the save - %damage

    CRIT UP lv10 gives +5 CRIT (not 10)
    critical +% options that we got from gears only multiply BASE CRIT, ignoring +CRIT from gears.
    ofc, since Alzy's build use CRT as secondary stat those crit+% will multiply higher CRIT than other players that don't use CRT as secondary stat.
