STATS AND BUILDS

STATS meant for an ARCHER/HUNTER
Strength (STR): add on 1.22 damage per point
Dexterity (DEX): slightly increases EVASION and SP is increased by 5
LUCK: every 5 points increases critical hit percentage by 1%
And slightly increase critical evasion

OPTIONAL STATS for ARCHER/HUNTER
Wisdom (WIS): increases Maximum MP by 5 and also increases magic resistance slightly
Reaction Defence Boost (REC): increases defence and adds 5 more SP to maximum SP

USELESS STATS to an ARCHER/HUNTER
Intelligence (INT): increases magic attack’s power

BUILDS:

For Normal Mode:

Each build can be adjusted to suite your purposes
Each Build is JUST a suggestion *though criticism is always excepted

PvE builds:

4 STR 1 DEX
Good for grind……extra attack boost helps kills mobs faster
Obsolete at later lvls

NOTE: though you may find that you miss a lot so ADD more DEX

3 STR 2 DEX
Great for grinding
Very good build balancing STR and DEX
Obsolete at the later lvls

5 LUCK
Horrible build for grinding at early lvls
Insane damage at later lvls

NOTE: no DEX is needed to do a Critical Hit
Critical hits are Base Damage Multipliers that NEVER MISS

PvP Builds:

4 STR 1 DEX
Great damage for killing
You Miss a lot of Rangers/Assassins and sometimes Fighters/Warriors
Only good for 1-15 PvP and 20-30 PvP

3 STR 2 DEX
Great build that balances damage and hitting/evasion
Will not “miss” as much though the occasional miss happens to Ranger/Assassins
Only good for 1-15 PvP and 20-30 PvP

5 LUCK
In the long run this is the BEST BUILD for PvP
You will not “miss” as much like the other builds (assuming you have 350 LUCK 70% chance to land a critical hit)
INSANE damage usually double you base damage (sometimes triple, x 4, x 5, etc.)
Only good for the later lvls
And 1-60 PvP

TIPS for Grinding and Training (normal mode)

Always grind on green or yellow until you’re confident enough to take on orange and red
Get a guild, they’ll help you lvl up and you can meet new people
Party with a RANGER/ASSASSIN their LUCK-buff is really helpful

Go for a 3 STR 2 DEX build for a while
Plus get a lot of kills in the early PvP maps to boost your reputation and experience is great for you
until 40-50ish then you can buy a stat reset stone and add all your points into LUCK

at 50 you should get 300 base LUCK
60% chance to Critical Hit
heavily Lapis your equipment with lvl 3-5 Fortune Lapis and you should get 350-400 LUCK
also find a lvl 53 assassin/ranger for their +90 LUCK buff

after getting 400ish LUCK then begin adding STR Lapis to counter the low base damage

If you can’t afford a stat reset stone and IF you want a LUCK build
Go 5 LUCK from the beginning though the grind may seen impossible it will be worth it


HARD MODE ARCHER BUILD

PvE

5 STR 2 DEX for the starting lvls
This should be easy lvling
Never tried this build myself but I believe this build has great potential

7 LUCK

SUPER-HARD to grind with especially at the beginning lvls
HIGHLY Recommended build for later on lvls and BOSS FIGHTS
Insane damage as soon as you past 300 LUCK….


TIPS for lvling a HARD MODE ARCHER/HUNTER

7 LUCK is really hard from the start plus the x 3 experience points needed
Make it WAAAYYYY harder
To make grinding easier then get a GUILD and also make friends on the way to #1

Re-stat when ever you think you could do best with a LUCK build


PvP BUILDS (for HARD MODE)

5 STR 2 DEX for 1-15 PvP
*But if you like to heavily Nostrum then go all STR
Great build for 1-15 PvP and 20-30 PvP
OKish damage as well as evasion

7 LUCK
At 20-30 PvP this build really shines
Heavily Lapis with Fortune Lapis for the Best results
Insane Damage and you’ll almost never miss (at lvl 30 *without lapis you get a 48% chance to land a critical hit)


ULTIMATE MODE ARCHER BUILD

I haven’t tried one yet…..
But I say…..

7 STR 2 DEX for the beginning lvls
Then re-stat to LUCK at lvl 47 then begin adding STR

or you can go for a 8 LUCK 1 DEX build
then re-stat at lvl 45 and heavily lapis your gear with Fortune Lapis
then begin adding STR to improve your base damage

Normal Mode:

Luck build

Slump Shot
Wide Shot or Ballista Shot
Bull's Eye
Body Training
Sharp Shooter
Long Range
Shot Pointer
Rapid Shot
Marksman Song
Potential Viable

WHY are there so little skills for Luck builds????
Other skills cannot be used with a critical hit
skills that are DoT and % based damage can't be used for a critical hit
(unless the skill says % of success its useless to a LUCK build)

therefore those skills become obsolete in the higher lvls

STR/DEX build

Piercing Shot
Sustain Shot
Slump Shot
Jumping Airshot
Bull's Eye
Body Training
Sharp Shooter
Long Range
Shot Pointer
Rapid Shot
Marksman Song

some of these skills require a lot of DEX to hit

Bow Power Up
Bow Mastery

for use with a Bow

Projectile Power up
Projectile Mastery

for use with a Crossbow

NOTE: no weapon is better then another
unless they have stats in them......

it all comes down to what YOU think and what YOU choose
ill just tell you the differences between the 2
and then YOU have to decide

BOWS
-faster in terms of DPS
-most common for LUCK builds because of speed
and a higher chance to Critical Hit
-good stats.....uncommon to see all stats in on spot....

CROSSBOWS and JAVELIN
-more DAMAGE to counter slow speed
-GREAT for 1-hit kills and high base damage
-stats are just like a bows except more common to be in STR DEX and LUCK separately

Anything you want ^^
Basically you can get every skill in the game (for a HUNTER/ARCHER)


ARCHER/HUNTER LEVELLING GUIDE

At the very early lvls an ARCHER/HUNTER should learn how and efficiently kite an enemy……

What is kiting??

The ability to RUN in a monster’s range and have it follow you while you attack it

NOTE: don’t pull too much monsters…..and DON’T let that monster get close

Party with a RANGER/ASSASSIN for their LUCK buff
Get a guild they’ll help you lvl up
Meet new people, befriend PRIEST/ORCLES

Lapising Guide

Depending on your build….. you may want to Lapis differently

STR/DEX

Lapis some Shrewd Lapis to your equipment
Also Lapis some additional Craft Lapis to increase your Attack
Some Assault, Deceive and Forbid Lapis to Boost up your ATTACK and DEFENCE

NOTE: you may want some Vigor, Mental and Life Lapis to increase your SP, MP and HP

LUCK

If you have under 300 LUCK
Then Lapis more Fortune Lapis until you got 350-400 LUCK
Then Begin to add more Craft, Assault/Deceive and Forbid Lapis to assist more in PvP and PvE


PvP Guide and Strategy

Solo

Archer/hunter vs. Warrior/Fighter

Get loads of range and remember how to Kite; dance circles around them
They’ll probably use auto-attack and will run/defend themselves when their HP is low
Finish them quickly or else …..RUN before they get close to you…..Use skills like “Slow” and Piercing Shot to gain some range…..use de-buffs to you advantage….

Archer/Hunter vs. Mage/Pagan

Drain their MP quickly or just use Rapid/Triple Shot it will be over quickly
Most people will probably try to run close to you so run away…..then attack before they cast their spells….ALWAYS interrupt their spells….De-buff them ASAP…..

Archer/Hunter vs. Priest/Oracle

This could take a while because most of them add REC to themselves
So go all out….Slow wouldn’t work because they have dispel same goes for
Piercing Shot, DoTs and % based attacks they won’t give much damage but will use their AoEs to slow you down……they’ll also run up close to drain your SP so run away and attack…..

Archer/Hunter vs. Ranger/Assassin

Lol……
It should be easy for a LUCK build to massacre them but they will use “stealth”
So use DoT such as sustian shot to prevent them from "stealthing"
and then de-buff them, Big Coup, and spam your attacks afterwards.....
Plus run for it when they use “sprinter” run for a good 2 minutes they can’t attack you when they’re running….and also don’t make it obvious on where you are running in case they could ambush you there…..
or use "slow" at your first hit

Archer/Hunter vs. Archer/Hunter

It all comes down to skills and armour……attack swiftly to bring down their HP
Also stun them and then finish them off if things don’t go your way……

In a Party

first of all it takes time to learn......
I can only give you tips.......
and Garathorn can give you strategies.....

TIPS (feel free to criticize)

a player should ALWAYS OBSERVE the situation,
Plan ahead, and ADAPT to the ever changing PvP realm......

will be posted as IMPORTANT points
another KEY to your success

~~~~ TIP 1 ~~~~

OBSERVE

why should you do it???
-can save your team from ambush and extermination.....
-lets you PLAN ahead of strategies on how to kill the opposing fraction

as you observe the 1-15 map
be on the look-out for SCOUTS* and DECOYS......

COMMUNICATION is the key to success
talk to you leader ( or party ) about what you see

~~things to tell your leader~~
# of total enemies
# of Pagans/Mage
# of Oracles/Priest
# of Assassins/Rangers
*remember the assassins/ranger's name if you are in 20-30 PvP and 1-60 PvP
# of every other class I haven't mentioned.......

skills if you happen to see them
possible builds they might be......

players who are is isolated ( be careful they could be Decoys )
know the difference between a Guardian/defender from a Fighter/Warrior

where each player is

~~~~ TIP 2 ~~~~
PLAN

taken from Garathorn's PvP Tactics Guide
http://forums.aeriagames.com/viewtopic.php?t=90496

decide on the best form of action that will
1) bring you kills
2) keep all your players alive
3) ensure your success in driving back your enemies

and then APPLY your strategy to what you OBSERVE

~~~~ TIP 3 ~~~~
ADAPT

your leader ( or you ) should be watching the Battle
and act like a mobile RESURECTION point

change PLANS if things don't go how you planned it to go
PROTECT each other
especially Pagan/Mages, Oracles/Priests and Hunters/Archers

stay alive as much as you can

send a Assassin/Ranger into a group of enemies
or as a decoy then tell him/her to attack and *STEALTH* away......
*remember to STEALTH away

and lastly the most
*strategic way of defending a Party* is to flee
don't kill of all your members
flee and then attack *just like kiting*

~~~~ TIP 4 ~~~~
ACTION
technically this should be TIP 3 but most people do this right away

it's self explanatory.....
why did you come into PvP realm???
to KILL

attack their Leader first
or anyone that is annoying

KNOW THE ENIMIES WEAKNESS

Assassin/Rangers
Warriors/Fighters can be easily killed by STRONG MAGIC ATTACKS

Pagans/Mages
Oracles/Priest can also be easily killed by Physical ATTACKS

Hunters/Archers can be killed by both Physical and Magical based attacks
*only if you can reach them first.......their MAXIMUM range is 35m........

Guardian/Defenders can be killed depending on their build
but mostly die by Magically based attacks

Also do not lapis your EQUIPMENT with EARTH or FIRE
why???
most Pagans/Mages MAX every WIND SPELL.....
some CRAZY Oracle/Priest will get EVERY WATER SPELL......

if you want to Lapis your EQUIPMENT then get the ones according to your BUILD
and Life Lapis and Mental Lapis for higher survivability

Get the BEST equipment you can for your lvl
don't bring any useful equipment ( high chance of Inventory items dropping )

and the MOST IMOPRTANT RULE/TIP is to OBEY THE RULES GM's POSTED


so far this is all I can think of at the moment......
hope you get LOADS of kills

and I wish you all good " LUCK "..........
you'll need it

forgot [b]EXTRA TIPS
run like the wind if you are alone and see a PLAYER on HM/UM
kill Knock Out Nostrum users FAST
HAVE FUN it's a game don't get mad or spaz just because your side is losing or has no BLESS
