As a DPS, the archer is proficient as a mid-ranged mobile harasser that excels at sustained damage while navigating across the battlefield. They can deal with several enemies at once with several AoE and crowd control abilities. However, archers don't survive long in melee combat.
damage to 8 enemies up to 7 m. Keep pressing the key to trigger a 3-hit combo. The second shot does the same as the first. You perform a reverse somersault on the third and rapidly fire arrows, dealing
Swiftly jump back 3 m and fire 3 volleys of arrows. The arrows are 2 m apart and deal
damage each to up to 5 enemies. All three volleys have a 40% chance to be critical regardless of your critical rate. This skill can cancel other skills. You will be immune to knockback while this skill is active. Consumes 40 stamina.
damage to enemies up to 9 m in front of you and decreasing their movement speed and jump power by 4% for 5 sec. Ice arrows pierce the enemy 4 times and can hit enemies behind. The movement speed reduction effect can stack up to 10 times. At max stacks, the target will be frozen for 2 sec. Consumes 6 spirit.
The main strategy with this build is to use Ice Arrow to keep the opponent slowed and at bay. If they get too close you can use Bow Swing to know them back or Evasive Salvo to dodge away. The three basics skills Arrow Stream, Arrow Barrage, and Rapid Shot are generally not used as they don't provide as much benefit as the other skills.
Arrow Stream should be used when you can slow/stun an opponent or you need to regenerate SP. Although it may seem like a good idea, it is not recommended to open a fight with Arrow Storm.
Precision Shot is meant to be used at range if you can get it in without taking damage. The attack does a significant amount of damage and can be very beneficial if used right.
The main strategy with this build is to use Rapid Shot as much as possible and use Arrow Storm and Precision Shot when off of cool down. Rapid Shot is the main DPS skills for this build as it does more DPS using less SP. Arrow Stream workings well when used close to the boss, then you can continue to spam Rapid Shot.
Sharp Eye's is an essential part of this build as it ups your critical rate by 76 and Accuracy by 5 for 180 seconds. This effect also goes to any player that steps within the buff. It is important to use this skill when available to ensure maximum DPS.
Arrow Storm is a good skill to use when low on SP or you know a boss will be static for at least 5 seconds. It can be used on your character by pressing and releasing, but if you hold the skill down it will cast it at range. Something to note about Arrow Storm is that it can attack at elevations higher than where you cast it. For example, on Fire Dragon if you cast it from a lower platform or pit while Pyyros Fard is above it will still hit him.
Precision Shot was chosen of Screwdriver Shot as Precision Shot gives a 4% increase to attack speed. Attack speed is one the most important stats as a fast attack speed will increase the damage done with Rapid Shot.
The Bronze Eagle skill is maxed out because of its Dexterity buff. At level 10 Bronze Eagle will give a 7.1% increase to your dexterity. With dexterity being your main attribute, it will give you a slight increase to DPS.
There isn't too much room for adjustments here, if you heavily value piercing on your attacks you could take points out of Precision Shot and Sharp Eyes and move towards Agile Archer which grants % piercing.
