    I'm curious what is your highest damage when using snipe for a pure archer. there's a lot of threads out there for hybrids/gunners, i want to know what pure archers get...maybe compare builds and see if we can get any higher dmg or if it's worth tossing all the points into snipe...and by pure i mean, you use a bow NOT a bowgun. if you can share what lvl your snipe is and the highest dmg you got and if you remember which monster u used it on it'd be great :)

    I think the highest for me was around 29k at lvl 4 snipe against the crab.

    Question : is snipe skill damage based on ATK only ? Is it influenced by weapon type or range?

    i don't know. which is why i'm trying to compare to other pure archers out there. my atk is at 856 and i've only used it from a 8-10m range. since it's currently at a 4 secs charge, too close = instant death for me since i'm running around with 575hp lol. for weapon, i currently using a player crafted one with a tempest arrow.

    I've done 47k highest on crab on a bow if it helps. I think snipe on an arch is more of a debuffer as it does guard break but definitely worth the 10 skill points for a better cast time and it's damage is still a winner compared to other skills in the shot tree.
    Current bosses that I've tried snipe on with a bow are mauez,arco and monger. Dealt about the same damage if shots are timed right.
    I'm a pure shot skill gunner/arch.
    Hope this helped you some :)

    i do 22-27K(snipe crit no xtal +dmg) with +9 Metal horn Bow NPC craft on foresti using ceramic arrow, pure dex
    with combo formation:
    (2mp bar) Moeba Shoot(opener)>Power Shot(swift)>Bullseye(cons)>Paralysis Shoot(Cons)>Snipe(cons) with total damage this combo give around 40k
    that long combo and can generate high agro, but its not boring and can help (slow/paralysis/tumble/guard break)
    i more enjoyed doing that than with my bow gun (5MP)(Moeba shoot>snipe(smite)>mp charge) around 60k (crit)

    cast time, dmg... bow gun is low cast time, higher dmg, but can't tumble etc and low stability. bow has longer cast time, low dmg but has effect on skills like what @Vianis said and higher stability

    ahh i see. i'm not familiar with hybrid builds. i'm only interested in pure archer builds at the moment for snipe damage :) Thanks @firefox1981 for clarifying.

    that's also why mages new physical passive buff impulse wave was added (note longer distance atck with rods+m.devices- but loser DMG on other weapons) cleer boost up to 20+ metres atck distance snipe away,
