Ranger Class - aka Bowman We are not really popular in any game, and more the less in Toram Online. This is a range class, dedicated specifically for DPS and Spike damage. Our skill builds are basically centered into Single Target skills, and we only have 1 AOE attack, which makes us very bad Farmers(unless we are 4 archers in the same party, which is awesome). We are partially glass cannons, our max HP is around the 600 HP at lvl 65 for now, 186 stats points and 102 skill point, which only allows us to increase our HP with crystals or gear stats, and thats not going to happen, sadly with current updates, more hp is required for Rangers to survive, 540-600 HP doesn't cut it any more. Asobimo Confirmed that Ranger skills are PHYSICAL SKILLS So they do not Use CSPD as a POWER SHOT Casting time reducer, It uses ASPD. This will be your Main Stat Calculator 1 Dex = 3.56 Dmg with Bow / 4.35 Dmg with XBow = 662 Bow Dmg / 809 XBow Dmg 1 Dex = 1.36 Accuracy = 186 Dex = 252 Accuracy 1 Dex = 0.97 ASPD = 186 Dex = 180 ASPD 1 Dex = 3.35 CSPD = 186 Dex = 623 CSPD 6 Dex = 1 Crit = 186 Dex = 31 Crit Base = 10% Crit Rate 3 Crit = 1% Crit Rate = 80-86 Crit = 26-28% Crit Rate ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Our Skills right now are the next. ~~Kudos to Argo - This was pulled from your Skill Tree Thread~~ Skill Descriptions 1. Power Shot- (MP 100) Shoot the target with stronger power. The charging time reduces as the skill levels up. You have a chance to make the target Fall Down. 2. Bullseye- (MP 200) Consecutively shoot at a point. The damage dealt increases attack by attack. 3. Arrow Rain- (MP 300) Shoot a lot of arrows to the sky. The arrows fall down at intervals and deal damage. 4. Moeba Shot- (MP 100) Shoot with sticky liquid. You have a chance to Slow Down the target. 5. Paralysis Shot- (MP 300) Shoot with poison of paralysis. You have a chance to Paralyze the target. 6. Shot Mastery- Get better at using bows and bowguns. ATK of Bows and Bowguns increases. 7. Sneak Attack- (MP 200) Hide yourself and turn Aggro away. Certain attacks don't get Aggro after this skill. 8. Long Range- Get better at attacking from a distance. The damage increases by attacking 8m or more far from enemies. Mandaroty Red . Green as Useful, and Pink as Useless. And I will explain them to you accordingly. 1. Power Shot- (MP 100) This is your 3 skill or 2nd skill on your Combo Set(If you play with combos). Super useful once you pull a 800 CSPD, this is close to instant casting. 2. Bullseye- (MP 200) Its relative this skill will basically stay at lvl 1 or lvl 5 depending on your build. Not necessary. Or just got full lvl 10 on it and see your dmg go lil high and just loose all your mp with this xD. 3. Arrow Rain- (MP 300) Farming Skill, useless unless you going for an alternative of your mage farmer, waste of points honestly. Might stay on 1 or 5 for next update. 4. Moeba Shot- (MP 100) This is your Opener, will try to always be your first skill you pull in since it will slow down your target = bye bye and head shot. 5. Paralysis Shot- (MP 300) Your 2nd Opener or 2dary skill on your skill chain or combo, good for Mage killing(pvp). 6. Shot Mastery- Name says it all, nothing to explain 7. Sneak Attack- (MP 200) This used to be useless until it opened my eyes, this is your finisher, damage your enemy all you want and then just say bye bye to aggro. Awesome. Useless for the time being 'cus there's no need to pull aggro away from yourself, since most of the things are tankable for now. 8. Long Range- This skill is only useful for bowman's, until a gun with higher range comes out(sniper rifle maybe???). Basically this are the skills and how well they will function depending on the situation. Since we are Single Target Class, most of our combat will relay on taking down our targets before they reach us. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Now to the 2 different types of builds our lil class can focus on. Now this are my views on how the class develops. My builds are made specificly for PvP Usage if it occures anytime or in the futue. Regardless, this build work perfectly fine with current PvE mechanics. This Guide doesn't show any Combo Set up nor Xtal set up, as I do not require copy's of me running around xDD. Sorry xDD. Each to their own . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Skill based combat. Dex based dmg - Skill damage increases with dex . Accuracy dependent ASPD based combat – Ranger skills are Physical skills, so ASPD is your Skill Charge mitigator. No MP Gear required. Basically, you will be relying on your skill spamming. But you need ASPD to do that. Staying put in one place casting Power Shot for 5 secs you are dead, while casting it in 1 sec is better or less.

Accuracy / Crit dependent – Accuracy unlocks crit allowing you to Hit -à Crit ASPD based combat – Ranger skills are Physical skills, so ASPD is your Skill Charge mitigator. No MP Gear required.
