    High pierce builds (i.e. halberd DT & Dual with PCR) are rather OP when facing high def NM+ULT bosses. With the Sakura Lantern bow from the last event, we can now outfit pierce for CF AND we don't have to worry about aggro either :cool:. Highly recommend this if you you were able to craft your own event bow too.

    Gear Setup:
    Screenshot_20190515-105124_ToramOnline.jpg
    Xtals - Handmade Cookie + Venena (for more mp)
    Arrow - free to use elemental arrow OR lil empress arrow (for more -aggro & pierce)
    My avatar stats - 12% pierce & -5% aggro

    Final Stats
    : -100% aggro + 56% pierce
    (Aggro calc: -40% (bow) -15% (assassin garb) -15% (handmade cookie) -25% (dark knight amulet) -5% (avatars) = -100% )
    (Pierce calc: 10% (bow) + 15% (assassin garb) + 9% (additional) + 10% (handmade cookie) + 12% (avatars) = 56%
    )

    This build needs
    : lvl 6 crit food buff + meikyo crit buff
    Crit calc: 25 (base) + 15 (assassin garb) + 14 (L6 food buff) + 5 (crit up skill) + 40 (meikyo skill buff) = 99

    Build works great with
    :

    • player tanks
    • high-aggro team mates (waste their EBs, not your own =P)
    • high hp defender mercs (or better, zombie mercs :eek:)
    • tanky pets (with pet heal included in skill rotation)
    Playstyle: Just stay back and apply worry-free CF spam :cool:. Things only go south if/when you run out of front-liners :confused:

    Bonus note: I tried putting all this gear onto my LUK farmer char to level at venena NM. Not a bad result for the stats! :D

    I have been using close variations of this set-up (w Squirrel Tail, Hallucination Spore, Lil Empress Arrow, same xtals) and I have to say they are my go-to characters whether I team up with guidies or level pets.

    I also use the same gear when levelling my DEX>VIT Triple Ice Cream defense merc (with a tanky pet, or with my archer wearing the defense merc gear). Two sets of gear for two characters; I guess I break even :)

    Yeah, i was using the same gear on my TEC>DEX statter char to cap him, and he was showing promising dps numbers at ven ult. :rolleyes: I'm probably going to do the same with my Vit>Dex merc char too, but before that I'm trialing a petmeister bowtana setup with him first :D

    On a side note, the new neo-maton xtal really changes things. Event bow + neo maton alone = -68% aggro. A -aggro chef friend could easily sort out the remainder of the -aggro for you so you are completely free to use anything else for the other slots.

    Also if you didn't get/invest refine into this event bow, you could still easily reach -100% aggro (with food) too:
    neo maton xtal (-28) + assassin garb (-15) + handmade cookie xtal (-15) + lvl 6 -aggro food (-44) = -102% aggro
    Alternatively:
    neo maton xtal (-28) + handmade cookie xtal (-15) + lvl 7 -aggro food (-58)
    = -101% aggro

    Free to go with normal atk gear, or all-out Pierce stats after that :rolleyes:

    Me: Replaces Arrow with Katana so Meikyo gives +65 crit and Kairki gives much much much more MP and Atk
    Also me: Too lazy to eat food buff every time it runs out

    My bowtana (vit>dex though) was freshly setup yesterday. I have a lot of crit gear already (and lvl 7 food) since i main tonfa so meikyo is less appealing to me. However, the ranshin buff to ampr and duration is rather nice. As is Zantei for a defensive option, but its limited to close range so need to get used to it more.

    Anyways, i'm really keen to compare the difference in dps between a triple thrust (+190 constant) buffed CF compared to the use of an elem arrow (+25% elem, + atk + stab), and then neither of the two, but this is really going off topic :rolleyes:

    I get it XD
    I'm of the personal opinion that I shouldn't need food buff to complete my builds. I know its a harsh thing to do to myself, but I just like making things that just work without needing to chug potions or spam items. Your build is great and I can see how it works, if you wish to see my build, the document is in my signature and is the first build there.

    Agreed about chugging items all the time, can't stand that also. But as tonfa main, crit food is ESSENTIAL (and many guildies/friends rely on it too now). Fortunately a 12 hour long set of awesome buffs is quite manageable. Recommend you get involved :rolleyes:

    I've also seen your bow tana build. Its very uncommon which is awesome, however I'm trialing to take my bowtana even further anti-meta by pairing it with a tanky pet that will be doing half of the overall dps. If its fun+works, I'll share that in a separate post :D

    I would if I played more, I typically play a lot when there are new skill trees so hopefully I can get a new groove.
    And if you wish to have a battle of the anti-meta, I will destroy you :mad: jkk jk:p. I love seeing off meta build and yours is here is great and more focused on something people dont typically go for.
