lv50/60 PvE Artillery Build/Guide by WhiteYukii

Oct 2, 2012 1:38 pm


Hello! Welcome to my guide! My name is Jay. In this guide, We will cover general Information About Artillery. I will also provide personal recommendations throughout the guide to help you become an Excellent PvE based Artillery player!

Names I go by Online:
Jayssle26:   Email/formal online nickname.
MS57KB:      Xbox360 and Youtube name ( I cant change it :P).
WhiteYukii: MMO Name,Usually i name female characters this.

What is the purpose of this guide?
The purpose of this guide is to inform players how to get the best Dps possible for PvE! This is is not a PvP guide!

Why did I play artillery?
1) Shes my little Princess
2) Her skills are beautiful
3) Her Ex and 55ex looks awesome
4) She  is a bit  more mobile and have more opportunity to attack than snipers

What is Artillery?
Artillery is the job advancement for magic based bowmasters (or 3rd job). Although they do not pack as much punch, or have the range as a sniper, they make up for it with their ability to attack at all ranges and many powerful magial arrows.

Why use Crossbows?
  -Crossbows have higher base magic than longbows, favoring more toward Artillery. However, crossbows have lower base critical.

  -Crossbows fire in  3 round bursts. each round has a chance to activate equipment abilities.

  -Crossbows are the mid-zone between shortbows and longbows which is good for Artillery because all your magic attacks are most effective in Mid Range.

-Crossbows give you more mobility than longbows, which is good for close to mid range combat.

Artillery Pros/Cons
Artillery is more mobile than sniper.
Artillery has a large area of effect.
Skills look flashy and impressive.

Lower DPS output than Sniper.
Stacking critical will be a serious problem.
Expensive gear, hard to build Magic based archer.

This is my completed build. It has been fully optimized for best DPS in PvE.

Twin shot: Shoots a pair of arrows.
This is a key spam skill for archers.

Wisdom of the owl:Increase the crit chance by a certain percentage within certain time.
Honestly, I never use this skill and i dont think it helps that much anyways.

Multi shot: A p-atk skill. and not very powerful


Extension Arrow: Fires a powerful magical arrow that splits in to 6 piercing arrows upon contact
One of your main damage skills. maxed dmg boost.

Swift Shot: Fires 6 penetrating arrows all around you.
good damage when used properly on a single target. level to 11 for damage boost.

Areal ChainShot: Fires multiple arrows from the air.
EXTREMELY powerful skill, leveled it to 11 for dmg boost.

Rapid shot: Generates magical arrows that fire rapidly.
Great damage and 55ex skill. I leveled it to 11 for dmg boost.

Guided Shot: Fires multiple arrows that track an enemy
Another one of your Amazing, totally original power skills. max this

Bulls Eye: Reduce enemy defence for a set amount of time
Increases all dmg on a target(s) by 25%, it increases overall dps output by a fair amount. get it. love it.

Revolutionary Ballista: Form a magical ballista that deals devastating damage to enemies.
Get it, its your ultimate. don't worry about the other ultimate.

Spirit Exell: Increases AGI and INT for 180 seconds
  LEVEL: 3
Increases overall attack by a bit, good buff. it will help.
Sylph's Aid: Increases Attack and movement speed by a set amount.
Awesome skill. it increases attack speed and movement speed now. i find it really fun to play around with. recommend getting it.
Crossbow Mastery:
Well...not much to say here.

Rain of Arrows: P-ATK  SNIPER skill - very slow- bad damage for artillery until at LEAST SP level6 - didn't have enough SP

Stunning Shot: PVP skill - didn't have the SP - Not needed for Pve..unless you actually want to go around stunning trash mobs.

Arrow Barrage: P-ATK skill- SNIPER ULTIMATE - not needed for PvE artillery - didnt have the SP
Seige Stance- P-atk skill. don't need it.


Magical Breeze: Increases the magic attack strength for the duration and all attack damage dealt to enemy changes to Magic Damage.
Great buff

Frag arrow Ex: Enhance the Frag Arrow skill to add explosion attack when hit.
30% damage boost and increased AoE :)

Detonating Arrow: Shoots an arrow with the power of magic The arrow blows up after 3 seconds on hit to deal additional damage to nearby enemies.

This  is a pretty nice skill. max it.

    I like your first 2 reasons for playing artillery xDDD

    Look forwards to your gear picutres and the gameplay video, coz i think a build is closely related to those.

      Thanks! Im taking my sweet time making it because I want it to be perfect lol, I'm in no rush here.
      well i just figured out how to record video footage on my PC , so I'm one step closer to making lovely videos :)

      Thank you for sharing your build with your artillery,
      Could I ask what are is the possible range of magic attack preferred in this build,
      and how to yield that digit based on the ff:
      >Equips (what set & enhancement level, potential)
      >Heraldry(what are the plates w/ third stats preferred)

      Also another thing, if you don't mind could you possibly post your
      character status so i could get the most likely the idea of the build.

      Thank you in advance. =))

      Wouldn't it have higher damage if the suffix of the main and secondary weapon is Magic Attack rather than Intellect,
      or is it the other way around?

      Is FD better in DPS over High M.Atk Value?

      Could I ask if what would be the current Int Value of the Artillery that you've managed to get.
      Is it above 1600 or so?

      I'm sorry if I ask too much, I'm still exploring the Artillery job class.

      Thank you in advance again =))
      Happy Halloween !

        Hey , nice guide!, how would be  an artillery build with lvl6 ankle shot ? i really use that skill ,your build is good but id like to have it maxed lol , what skill should i lower to have it at lvl 6?


        Nov 2, 2012 12:56 pm
        Reply 12#  ♦HofferHoHo♦

        It is not advised that you put more points into ankle shot because it is NOT one of an Artillery's dps skills. however, if you really want to, I suggest decreasing Swiftshot's SP down to 6 and adding the extra points to ankle shot. Why swift shot? Because out of all your magic skills, swiftshot is the only one that doesn't have an Ex (besides guided shot, but that skill is powerful). Also, it has the lowest dps output compared to the rest of your magic skills.

        Hi, I would just like to ask, do Artilleries really gain 0.25 MATK per point in AGI? [SMILE=1]

        Dec 7, 2012 2:46 pm
        Hello there Yukii,
        What would be the basic stats of the artillery that you've obtained/achieved?


        Also what is the base and max value of your:


        Thank you in advance =)

        Dec 13, 2012 10:34 pm
        all i can say is that ur the best yuuki.all the lvl of the skills and damage growth all calculated well, of all the artillery skill build posted i think this one of yours is the best for PVE DPS.2 thumbs up! [SMILE=11]

          i thought int and agi or vit is the best choice for artilery ,and of course M attack and Crit must be maxed out

          Yea I agree.  However agility doesn't have to be that high...grab crit % boost whenever available. xD
