    Skills explanation an description
    archer tree
    Power Shot lvl6 100mp
    This is a great skill to interrupt bosses; with bows it's tumble effect Is very high about 90% tumble rate. It's damage is not great tho and u should always swift it in combo cos it's slow charge time.
    Bullesye lvl10 200mp
    Does decent damage with a bow, +25% damage on each 3 hits. I use it alot with snipe combos for extra damage. 3rd strongest bow skill in the tree
    Snipe lvl10 400mp
    Main dps skill need we say more; has 60% guard break chance which means increased damage and no boss guard for 3 secs.
    Arrow rain lvl10 300mp
    2nd best damage skill after snipe; this does 4 waves of decent aoe damage. This skill does 50% more damage with bowgun; bt if a boss moves around alot it misses most of its hits.A bow user can best take advantage of this with powershot to tumble a boss making it imobile an then hit with a full arrow rain might! No dodgy dodgy boss!
    Moeba shot lvl5 100mp
    A sticky shot that has high chance of slow effect on boss's movement. Very good opening skill of combos ; it's damage is also medium decent.
    Paralyze shot lvl5 300mp
    Raises snipes stability% which gives it more damage and reduces bosses aspd an evade. I use it mostly for the buff it gives; damage is a bit weak with bow
    Smoke dust shot lvl1 500mp
    This skill I use as combo save tag to allow 1mp combos; it causes blind effect on boss which makes snipe never miss (only evaded).it's damage is weak tho.
    Bow mastery passive lvl10
    Raises your atk with bows. Not sure the % bt max it for best damage
    Sneak lvl7 200mp
    A great utility skill at level removes 500 of ur future aggro, keeps yu from gaining aggro- it has special effect that archer skills don't get aggro for 20 secs at all!Best used when you're low on revitas or don't want to steal aggro from the tank. Boss won't even touch you.
    Long range mastery passive lvl10
    Max this skill it improves all your archer skill damages by 10% at lvl10.
    Quick draw lvl10
    A great passive it has 30% chance to recover back 1mp bar everytime a skill is used. You will barely run out of mana now. Infinite spam and no MPcharge in battle!!

    Magic skill tree
    All we need is impact and mp charge from here
    Magic arrows lvl5>javelin lvl5>lance lvl5>
    Impact lvl 7 200mp
    Cuts the next skills mp cost in half; an has high tumble effect. Instant cast magic damage to helps improve your damage. Use it mostly to cut snipes mp cost an add proration damage drop off.
    MP charge lvl1
    Charge ur mp back if you used it all up. Use mostly after battles.

    Priest skill tree
    Holy fist lvl1 100mp
    This is used as a combo closer because it doesn't activate if your more than 1m from the boss; thus allowing you to start another combo quicker.

    Battle skills tree
    Attack up passive lvl10
    The higher your lvl the higher the % atk it gives you; max it for highest atk.
    Smash passive lvl5
    Has a very low chance to make a skill do alot of damage.
    Critical up passive lvl10
    Great passive it increases ur critical rate and critical damage. Max it for max crit

    Survival skill tree
    Safe rest lvl5
    Just a prequel to get HP boost
    HP boost lvl10
    Gives you 1k extra HP at lvl10 very useful so u don't get 1shotted or squishy to boss attacks.

    Combos
    New dps combos does nice damage and relatively quick

    》》》》》》》》》》》》》》》》
    Other combos I use I'll just list them:...

    Gears section:
    I won't give you much of a guideline here as I'm not so up to date with gears; it's up to yourself what you want to use. My preference is to use cheap gears not cost you millions of spina and cheap xtals to:
    Weapon
    ●Recommend: Leaf bow player craft slot- dex%5-7 crit+10 critdamage+10(100mp+xtal)

    •Forest wolf bow player craft slot-dex% or Atk% crit+10 critdamage+10(100mp+xtal)

    Armour
    ●Recommend: Player craft armour - c101010D% or D+(100mp+xtal) ( want to get our citrate up) LIGHT REMODEL

    If you can't afford those things get drop gear:
    •leaf bow mob drop or npc craft.(100mp+xtal)
    •killer coat boss drop.(100mp+xtal)

    Additional
    • crystal earings 300mp+(100mp+ or 200hp+xtal) *this is for more mana so we have a decent amount go with a full hp200+ xtal set if you use this*

    •knight cape dex%3 atk%1 hp+10% aggro+10%(100mp+ or 200hp+xtal) *this is for more damage go with a full mp100+xtal set if u use these*
    OR
    Spiky bandana dex%2 long range damage%2 accuracy20( 100mp+ or 200hp+xtal)

    Special Ring

    Dex II dex+4 300mp+ (100mp+ or hp200+xtal )
    Xtals
    Thanx to @makOi mentioning this if you want to deal better damage with ARCHER skills get: Volg xtals.

    Potions

    i use pots to increase my hp and speed since i dont I don't us boss xtals anymore
    •giga speed pot 750+ aspd 30mins- boosts proration damage and attk speed.
    •Vita+ II +1000 hp 30min- you will possibly have over 3k hp with this pot makes u tanky af.
    •power essence II atk%2 atk+20 30 min- boosts ur damage yeah boi!
    ========__________===========_________


    Thanx for reading, and thanx to the people I learnt from mak0i,precaria,saphos, dansAway,Giffy and others! And to those that followed my builds in past big thanx to you!

    I just notice we have the same combo for Sneak! ;)
    Oh and btw since were not getting aggro anymore with the help of Sneak Attack (Depends if your party is not attacking) i do recommend the use of VOLG Xtals to have an increase to your overall DPS. (Shoot from afar! 8m+)
    Again nice guide!

    haha, finally saw your build.
    Well, I guess our sneak attack combo is not really the same ~ mostly I use holy fist to end my combo when it is a long one (>4 skills).
    In addition to sneak attack, I play with the Javelin Combo in order to create a pure 130% snipe damage ;)

    Thanks for your build and combos! Again nice to meet you! bow-guy XD

    i've recently made an archer type. i'm curious as to why your sneak is lvl 7. mine's lvl 1 and the effect seems quite small. i feel like i wasted a skill point. though i don't know much about it. it has no buff icon at all -_-. do you have any info on its duration and effects per level?

    Hi yeah i left it at lvl7 because if you put sneak in your combo it should be enough to deal with all your aggro. Bt if u want it at lvl10 u can drop arrow rain an get to 10.
    It removes 100 aggro per lvl - so it removes away 800 aggro at lvl10 .it works the opposit of provoke; think of it like havng -aggro
    and for *20 secs it causes shot skills like smoke dust, moeba, paralyze shot to not generate any agro.
    * that last one is still be confirmed by testing.

    Ganglef add more atk and dex which is great, volg xtal increase yur damage always +2% when you are outside 8m range. But this outdated build.
    Maybe Ms xtal or nureth xtal is a better choice now :)
