Xian's Bow Master/Sniper Guide!



Here are some other Sniper guide by my guild mates:
-v2seraph(PVE)
-
JaredGYC(PVE)

Table of Contents:
I. Archer Skills
II. Bow Master/Sniper skills
III. Equipment/Heraldry guide

Why Bow-Master/Sniper?
Snipers have the highest critical rate/resist due to their high natural Agility (main stat). This results in them being one of the best (or one  of the best) DPS classes in DN. Additionally, they also have the furthest range!!

So if you’re looking for some PEWPEW or sniping people off in group PVP. SNIPER IS FOR YOU!

      Few things I want to clear up -
      1. You're saying Charge Shot is almost instant even without a crest, I have EX and reduced casting time crest.. so can you provide me with solid proof that I can dispose of my crest? That's kinda important.
      2. I'm pretty sure Swift Shot is the only skill in BM tree that doesn't hit grounded, but if you meant it doesn't hit jumping opponents then skip this part.
      3. One thing I've noticed about Owl's Insight(I don't have it anymore, so maybe things have changed), it DOES boost crit in PvP. I was testing Guided Arrow and without buff it was hitting for like 5k and with buff for 7-8k.

      Jun 28, 2011 1:33 pm
      Actually i am interested to find out the truth about charged shot EX myself..

      Xian, do we have some1 in the guild with the plate currently?

      If not, perfecti can you send me a video with you casting charged shot EX (with cast time plate)? I will pm u my MSN if you are interested to help me with this, or you could just upload it to youtube.

      I will help you measure the casting time with image analysis software (frame by frame analysis) to determine the exact effect of the plate.

        Well for skill translation I used this http://dn.mmosite.com/skill/bowmaster.shtml . pretty sure swift shot hits ground target.

        And yes. Owl's sight work in pvp. but with the Duration and CD, i find it rather useless. thats why i ranked it at 1/5.

        I have damage crest for Charge shot. will test later :)

        oh i got it, my translation has swift and rapid shot switched... that's why i thought rapid shot shouldn't have invulnerability.. well, it's clear now.

        What's the FPS (frame per sec) for the ingame recording thingy?

        preferable in 30 fps... cuz i just recorded xian's casting with 30fps..

        It's better to made comparison with similar FPS.

        O skype is fine too, i got skype :D

        Pm me your contact if u see this in the next 10min.. Otherwise, i gonna sleep soon probably.


        Otherwise, we will hav to wait till tmr, so that i can record Mon's casting time with the 50% plate.
