A brief Introduction…

Alright I’m no pro, but I’m sure I can set the clueless or the not so experienced onto the right path. This guide is 100% based on personal experience, so no assumptions will be made.
I’ve been actively playing GS since late 2006 so I’ve gotten the chance to see them change over time. Having played them, loved them, hated them, and loved them again.

I’ve seen a very small amount of players shine and many of them give up for several reasons. I’ve failed and succeeded in things I’ve tried with the class.
Anyways, over this period of time, I’ve gotten the chance to learn quite a bit about the class, as well as try several things and test various aspects such as builds, gears, skills, etc.
What you’ll see here will be pretty much a compilation of what I’ve learned during my time playing Gunslingers.
This guide is aimed for beginners who wish to play the class.

1. What is a Gunslinger?

– Is this the class for me?

  • In a nutshell, a Gunslinger is a raw damage dealer.
  • They revolve around high % atk modifier skills and the ability to deal a huge amount of damage in a short time to multiple or single targets.
  • This is a class for people who like to:
  • Kill several people with AoE attacks.
  • Inflict high damage to multiple targets in a short period of time.
  • Have an organized guild that actually cares about them to Woe with.


2. Stats and Builds

– What works and what doesn’t.

As mentioned before a gunslinger revolves around dealing a huge amount of damage in a short time.
What does that mean? Gunslingers revolve around skillfire mostly, normal attacks are not useful to the GS’s purpose due to low DPS.

A brief explanation on what each stat does for a GS:

Strength

Strength is used in a build order to carry HP/SP recovery items during woe mostly.
It will also allow you to carry more armors, weapons, etc, a pretty vital stat.

Agility

The agility stat is best left at 1 point, due to the fact that it does nothing for a good, balanced Gunslinger build.
This is because:

  • Normal attacks are weak and you won’t kill anything worth killing with them.
  • It takes more time to kill something than if you just simply skill fire in PvM.
  • Agility doesn’t have any effect such as cooldown reductions and stuff like that on any of the good skills such as rapid shower, desperado, and full buster.
  • A Gunslinger’s flee is a joke. It can be easily topped by any class (talking about your average decent 99 trans).
  • Completely useless in Woe builds due to the reason stated above, and also because it takes points which are much more needed to feed your Dex/vit/int/str.

Here are a few questions you may have in mind:

Q: Hey but I can still use skills even if I do take agi!

A: You don’t have the SP for that. An agility Gunslinger’s SP is pretty laughable in terms of how fast it runs out.

Q: But what if I balance it with all the other stats? Hybrid agility with vit and what not!

A: Why would you waste points to get agility if they can be used in other areas where they actually make an impact on your build? By the time you’re 9x(which is very soon with these rates), actively woeing, PvPing, and MvPing, you’ll see the agility you took for whatever reasons becomes just wasted stat points that could’ve been used for str, vit, or int. If your server has a resetter then this is not problem.

Q: Hey, I can still use SP potions to regen SP you know!

A: An agility GS will still have low SP, so even if you spam RJs or whatever to regen sp you’ll be basically just skill firing(see the irony here) see, this is where int comes into play.
I should mention a good 7x int GS doesn’t really have SP problems, especially under magnificant+RJs. In PvM with SP gears, under the effects of magnificant your SP regen rate and SP itself is enough.
Throw in some basic SP gears and you’ll rarely have to sit.

Q: Hey But I like to attack fast with normals, chain action and I can do 1k damage per hit!

A: In my experience, if you want a class attacking fast and strong with normal attacks, make a sniper. Gunslingers have awesome skills, so make use of that.

Vitality

7x is a good number in my experience. This will give you a good resistance to stun, nice HP, and nice healing from pots. Rounds at multiples of 5(With this I mean, every 5 vit you get a bonus to your HP regeneration rate.).

Intelligence

Intelligence is used for regenerating SP, increasing max SP and recovery rate from SP items, and MDef.
Int rounds up at multiples of 6, making a base of 60 somewhat a magic number, thanks to the job bonus of +2.
taking bless into account, your int becomes 72.

Dexterity

Source of atk and hit. From my experience, having 99 Dex isn’t necessary.
There are however several options for your total dex, it basically depends on your focus, Pure PvP or all-around hybrid.

All-around hybrid can either be 92+18 or 93+17 (going for a total of 120 with blessing), the choice is all about whether you want to use double alligator
carded gloves, or Alligator+Refined safety ring. This is taking Increase accuracy into account, read below the skill explanation below for some stuff that
might be troubling you about this. For a balanced dex a GS needs +3 dex food, which is very easy to get.

Luck

Luck can be left at 9 to gain some protection against some stat effects or at 1 by using the resetter.

Recommended Stat point allocation

  • Str 1-2x-3x
  • Agi 1
  • Int 6x-8x (7x-8x aren’t meant for WoE builds)
  • Vit 6x-7x
  • Dex 9x-120 (Don’t go 99 please. It is far from necessary and you need those points elsewhere.)
  • Luk 1-9 (Use the resetter or not)


3. Skills

– Trigger happy slingin’ action.

Alright time to shed some light on what skills are good and which ones are worthless.
I’ll save you reading time first.

Skills you must get:

  • Rapid Shower lvl.10
  • Fullbuster lvl.10
  • Desperado lvl.10
  • Increase accuracy

Onwards to explanations. Here is a link to the effect and description for each skill if you are not familiar with them.

Rapid Shower

Spammable attack skill, only works with revolvers.
Agility doesn’t affect this skill’s after cast delay.
common usage in woe and pvp is interruption and harassment.

Fullbuster

Destructive 1300% atk shotgun skill.
It has a nasty 3 seconds after-cast skill delay at lvl.10 as well as a small chance to blind you.

Take note, this skill should be a finishing attack. never open with it or just use this,

It will only 1 hit KO targets that do not have a cranial shield (Thara Frog Card inside a shield).
Against a fully geared target that is not a paladin, you can expect it to hit somewhere between 1,2k and 2,5k. depends on assumptio and other buffs on the target.

Desperado

A gunslinger’s real source of damage.

Weapon switch or cranial shield after its done casting , the situations where you should do that are common sense.
Desperado is a melee attack so it ignores pneuma. It gets blocked by safety wall, however each hit desperado lands counts as a single one.
In my experience eating a safety wall with desperado relies in luck, which translates to unreliable. When a priest uses safety wall, switch to statusing rapid showers.

In theory, Desperado is a 500% atk per hit 7×7 AoE skill which lands anywhere from 0 to 10 hits in random directions, it has a 50 sp cost at level 10.
In practice, this translates to an AoE skill which strikes an average of 4-6 hits against your target, but it can also land 1-3 hits. The closer you are to your opponent, the more chances for desperado to deal more hits.

A proper infernal desperado(i.e. decent build) in your average PvP/Woe (raydric, Cranial, featherB) target, will inflict roughly 2k damage while using silver bullets (always use silver bullets).

Taking assumptio into play, it gets reduced of course. This skill is particularly deadly in WoE against emp breaking SinXs and LKs, that is, people who default Evil druid Armor.

It’s not an option for a decent SinX/LK, due to the presence of other certain classes. Of course, chances are as a GS, you’ll be stuck in a non-serious guild, or a non-organized one sadly.

Increase Accuracy

Very helpful to complete Dex in WoE builds. It basically gives you a free Nimble Glove (+4 dex) for 1 minute.

This means more stat points can be used for Vit/Int or STR, and a free accessory slot for some more defense. You need 4 coins to trigger this skill. To use coin flip, just unequip your weapons, and with a zerk pot and buffs you’ll get 10 coins in a matter of seconds.
Increase accuracy should be used wisely, that is, before any real action that is worth it.

Now you can skip this part because those are the only skills you really need to know about but I’ll give some information on the rest of the Gunslinger’s skill tree.

Single Action

Useless beyond lvl.5 which is the prerequisite for Dust.
This skill is useless due to the fact that agility/aspd based gunslingers are no good.

Last Stand

Useless, unpractical skill that only lasts 15 seconds, where you have to wait a few more seconds for the the cooldown of its activation to go off, making its duration even shorter.

Last stand is a skill, which may seem good(+100 atk(not 100%, just 100) and +20% aspd) but it is actually a low DPS, sack of failure. It works best with handguns but damage isn’t comparable to how fast you would be dealing it with other skills without so much investment. It is also used with gatlings but it fails even harder, due to the single reason that Gatlings suck due to low base damage and only 1 slot, the duration of 15 seconds, and how it requires and agility build. This is pretty much The skill for people who go for gatlings, but it is so terrible that I feel like getting hit for leveling an agility slinger in a 3x just to see how this skill failed in action, back in the day anyways.

Gatling fever

The only gatling gun skill, which sucks like the gun it is for, The moment you trigger this, is the moment you get raped.

This skills increases ASPD by 20%(for new people reading this, no this is not zomg high aspd. It’s a pretty standard self buff for some classes, but the difference is that the other classes’ buff doesn’t suck as much. An increases atk by 120 at lvl.10 (that’s not zomg high damage either. Real damage comes from multiple slots, something gatling guns lack). The skill itself is stupid because it is meant for agility builds. It automatically rapes agility builds, the moment you trigger it because your movement speed gets reduced to the point where agi’d down people walk faster, and it also reduces your flee by 50%.
There are no real uses. Here’s the charm, you deal more damage with a pair of handguns with chain action lvl.10 than with this and a carded butcher.

Gunslinger’s Panic/Adjustment

This skill can be good or bad and it is bad for Woe. It is decent for pvp if you abuse status resetter.

The skill consumes 2 coins to get -30 Hit and +30 Flee, and receive 20% less damage from long range physical attacks for 20 seconds.
it is a fun skill mostly. It was indeed fun stacking this with alligator accessories, cranial shield , feather beret and noxious.
But in a real build, you have to sacrifice a lot of good skills in order to get this, which isn’t that great for WoE.

Bull’s Eye

This skill pierces Cicada Skin Shed (that ninja skill).
Ninjas usually die within a few hits. With a decent skill build, you should have room for this.

Triple action

Bad skill. It has low DPS despite how spammable it looks and is agility based, which means it is useless.

Magical bullet

Terrible skill, yet another skill in the bunch of useless Gunslinger skills.
It deals ghost damage and takes your MATK into consideration. This skill doesn’t consume a bullet,

i.e. waste of skill points, because:

  • You should be always using silver bullets
  • You shouldn’t be worrying about bullets. Ever.

Cracker

Unpractical skill. You can kill your target in the time you stun it.

Coinfling

Same as above but this skill lowers def.

Chain action

This is an agility Gunslinger skill.
Useless in a WoE build; you won’t kill anything with normal attacks.

Tracking

A prerequisite for some skills which are needed. I’ve never really used it, mostly due to its fixed cast time. Anyone smart can simply outhide,
and I can kill that person in the same time it takes to fire, but with other skills.
You will still need it at lvl.10 anyways, just for other skills. Some not so well known facts:

  • Tracking doubles your current hit when it strikes.
  • Tracking is supposed to crit. Go pester eAthena to fix it.

Disarm

This is a dueling build skill, but not for a WoE skill build. If you have an organized guild to WoE with, you should be hunting GR/ED users, not disarming them.

Disarm is aspd based so it isn’t reliable. From experience, even with 1 agility, a Gunslinger that uses a berserk potion can spam it decently with handguns.

Wounding shot

Unpractical skill, bleeding won’t help kill anyone who knows what he/she is doing.
By the way, the bleeding chance doesn’t stack with say a triple breeze branch + bloody bullets + The skill.

Dust/crowd control shot

A knock-back skill and a prerequisite for full buster. Somewhat useful for pvp dueling (somewhat because you WILL get ganged anyways).
It is not blocked by pneuma. One drawback is due to that reason, you have to be close to the opponent, as opposed to arrow repel.
It is not recommended but it is a prerequisite for fullbuster.

Spread Shot

Useless shotgun mobbing skill(hi desperado), can be used for statusing but as I said before, there are better things you could be doing instead of trying to status people with a 5% chance. Also no, saying that you don’t take damage while mobbing if you take this skill isn’t a real excuse, since you would be taking skill points you need in other areas if you take this to a decent level. It won’t actually take more than 2 minutes to kill a single mob.

Ground Drift

Ground drift is a grenade launcher skill. Ground Drifted mines deal pitiful damage in WoE which can be easily outpotted, and this is a bad skill to use.


4. Gears

– The good, bad n’ ugly

Lets talk about the weapons available to you.

Revolvers

Used for rapid shower and triggering desperado. A +10 double bloody Western outlaw is the best you can get.

Shotguns

Used for full Buster and dust, they have high atk but slow aspd(no need for normals) +10 bloody black rose is the best you can get.

Gatling Guns

They suck.
Only 1 slot at most, terrible skills, and low damage.

Grenade launchers

They have their uses (not ground drift), +10 Bloody inferno is the best you can get.

Rifles

Statusing +10 branch is a must for pvp. A long barrel or dusk are also useful if you have an incapacitated opponent and have time to pull off tracking.


Basic PvP/Woe Gears

Head

+7 Feather Beret, Alice Doll.

Middle

Opera masque, Goblin leader, Masquarade, Alarm mask.

Shield

+7 Cranial valk shield.
You can’t equip a gun and a shield at the same time so make sure you learn proper weapon swapping.

Weapons

See above.

Armor

+7Marc/ED Odin’s blessing/Glittering jacket

Footgear

+9 Superior boots

Garment

+9 Noxious muffler

Accesories

Don’t use dual zerom gloves. In my experience, you need something along the lines of alligator gloves and refined safety rings.


Basic PvM Gears

Head

Up to you, Apple of archer/Ulle’s is pretty useful.

Middle

Opera masque, Goblin leader, Masquerade, or Alarm mask.

Shield

+7 Racial valk shield.
Equip the proper card according to the place where you’ll be grinding.

Weapons

See above.
Racial carded weapons as well.

Footgear

  • +9 Superior boots
  • +7 Sohee Shoes
  • +7 Vidar’s Boots

Garment

  • +9 Noxious muffler
  • +7 Immune muffler.

Accesories

  • Morph accessories
  • Zerom gloves

-Morpheus set is useful for leveling.


5. PvM and MvP Aspects

RO is plagued with undead monsters, and you can use silver bullets.(self explanatory).

You can pretty much level on your own in a server that has a healer. Otherwise maybe you will have to use the inn or sit and wait for hp/sp which is not efficient at all.

A personal route I like to use goes like the following:

1-11: Novice Training Grounds or any low level monster that works
11-18: Poporings, Drops (poring land has plenty of them)
18-40: Metalings (usually north of Lighthalzen)
40-60: Mob wolves (pay_fild02) and save the Strawberries
60-80: Dark frames, 1 hit them with Fullbuster and use the strawberries to recover SP.
80-90: “old school”: Anubises or Nifelheim with a priest.
80-95: healer present server: Rapid Shower banshees and warp back for SP.
90-99: no healer: Majorouses, Clock Tower High Orcs, Bathory map, Isis map, Nifflheim, Zombie Masters (Britoniah guild dungeon if you have access).

90-99 (healer present server):

Abbey if you try hard. This doesn’t involve mobbing with desperado. That’s unrealistic, since banshees will buttrape you 5 times before you drop dead.

Usually a successful party for that place would be Clown/Bard + High Priest + Professor, using skills like Full Buster and Rapid Shower, with and occasional Desperados, however that’s trying too hard to make a GS effective there. In real practice, unless you’re with a guild that cares, why would a HP, Clown/bard and Professor would party with you if they can get better mobs, exp, and drops with a sniper? Not exactly recommended.

  • Solo Abbey abusing healer.
  • Party more at nifelheim
  • Britoniah guild dungeon.

An alternative leveling route that I often see other experienced gunslingers take is as follows:

11-18: Poporings and miscellaneous things in Payon Dungeon
18-50: Metalings (usually north of Lighthalzen)
50-70: Peach trees (Endow if you have access to one, you should take out peach trees in 2 rapid showers with fire endow)
70-90: Abbey, peach trees to get more rj to spam if you’re too cheap to buy, Mobbing Anubis
90-99: Quests; there are lots of high-exp yield quests at your disposal, and if that doesn’t push you all the way there, mob anything that drops gear you need.

Realistically, if you have any notion how to play the game, it should take you about 4 hours to hit 90 (in a 10x rate server).

MVPing is also rather enjoyable.

GSes can do MVPs like Randgris and Bio3 stuff with a decent organized party, and it can also solo joke MVPs such as Atroce and Eddga. All it takes is some thinking and the right equipment (Authoritative badges, Properly carded guns, etc).

I am being vague on purpose because figuring this out is part of the fun.

However, even as support for mvping they can be useful. Controlling the mobs with desperado is always a respectable asset for any mvp party.


6. PvP Aspect

Gunslinger isn’t a solo pvp class, in a party with the presence of a High Priest, a professor and a stringer, you can truly destroy a lot of classes. That’s really a no brainer, anyone can figure it out. So I’ll give some info on dealing with some classes in a duel type fashion(like that actually ever happens in the pvp room, but anyways this is all 1 vs 1 advice). Take it with a grain of salt, QuietJack is the actual pvp specialist but anyways.

Lord Knight

LKs aren’t exactly a threat if you’re going against one without an entire guild backing him up. In practice you’ll face 3 probable openings from them, or at least that’s how it was when I PvP’d.

  • Spear boomerang
  • Him rushing towards you to Bowling Bash
  • Him in frenzy.

It’s also fairly popular to try to spiral pierce, but those are easily hidden out of with a decent reaction time on your side. To deal with spear boomerang, you’ll need to have basic instinct on alligator gloves switching and Cranial switching too. Cranial switch immediately after a rapid shower or 2, you’ll have to know the cooldown of his spear boomerang.

If he gets close to BB, switch to shotgun and use dust followed by a rain of rapid showers, with Cranial switching at discretion.
If its a clean duel, you’ll more than likely get him dropped in a Royal Jelly spam competition. Whoever runs out of them first is the winner.
If you have disarm this is a free fight for a GS, just get up close and infernal Desperado him. With a proper build you should be able to take LK hits just fine.
Deal with Bowling Bash LK in the same fashion as the one above. You’ll probably have to spam a few aloes/RJs.
A frenzy LK can be easy or a bit harder. depends on your skill tree, if you disarm him its game over for him. if you don’t have disarm you’ll probably have to pot a bit, but he’ll eat mad damage from desperado, and if you’re properly geared, his attacks won’t really have a high DPS. You can always hide right before he gets close enough to you as well. Remember, against frenzy lk’s their battle is against you and the clock. If you have any status effects you can throw at them, this is the time to do it. Poison them, then freeze them and wait for their hp to dwindle down. If not, just stick to the strategy of staying hidden and keeping them at bay with dust.

High Wizard

This situation is pretty easy in a 1 vs 1.
Stack some basic mdef, combined with your basic reduction gears (alligators, Noxious, feather beret, cranial switching) and his magic won’t even scratch. It can get a little tricky if they have cast-interruption prevention, which they should. (Naturally, if they didn’t you could practically poke them to death with low-dps normal hits, but any hw worth dueling won’t be vulnerable to that.) Hit them first. Hit them fast. That should be the key rule in any battle against any class, but it can’t be stressed enough here. If you can exploit status, any status at all, it’s always important to do so. You should assume that a decent hw has silence immunity as well as freeze, thus you should go straight for cursing and stunning. Curse won’t completely debilitate them, but it should keep them disabled just enough to give you time to keep your distance or run in for the kill with desperado. At this point it’s all about how you personally duel, and this guide has no impact on that.

Sniper

Snipers can be annoying if you don’t master cranial switch, but they’re not impossible to kill, even High HP whores.
If you’re in a pvp skillset build, disarm can really destroy them, doing this isn’t near as unpractical as it sounds if you have the ranged reduction gear to tank enough of their doublestrafe spamming..

I usually disarm snipers in 3-5 attempts, again with decent pvp gears you can take their damage just fine.
FA snipers are even easier to deal with due to the fact that FA will have a low DPS on a properly geared GS. The average sniper vs gs duel usually goes like this: GS spams rapid shower and sniper spams double strafe. Sniper wins. Don’t fall into this pattern, it’s predictable and shows no skill or finesse. Gauge the speed at which they’re doublestrafing. Unless they have specialized cooldown reduction gear then you can gauge whether they’ve more vit or more agi. Based on what you gather, know when to switch from rapidshower spam to full buster if you absolutely have to get stuck in that pattern. (Similar to how a sniper would ds spam and finish with fa) These battles are usually quick, and even with a decently skilled player, it frequently ends with both the sniper and the gunslinger dead.

Whitesmith

This class can be a pain to fight against in pvp, but it all depends. on what exactly the WS is carrying to pvp with(Aloes, Mastela/RJs, Speed pots, etc).

A disarm can still make their Cart Termination not so fearsome. Leave desperado for last.

Due to its uneven damage output, chances are you might not land all the required hits to keep a nice DPS against him.

Dust->RS combos work.

A Combat Knife user can still tank an infernal desp pretty well, so be careful, this is a hard matchup in pvp imo. It’s best to avoid this type of battle, though it’s completely possible. Just make sure you keep the damage on heavy. A sleep status or curse status weapon would be best. If it’s a decent WS don’t even bother with stun, freeze, or silence. Any status that can be cured with a pot will be a waste of time. This is also a battle of stalling. Keep them far away from you and only go in for the kill with desperado, as said, as a last resort, or if you’ve managed to incapacitate them with sleep. Keep the pressure on them, even as you’re retreating. Make sure to keep the max distance with them as long as you can maintain it.

Assassin Cross

Simple.

Non-EDP, but linked is not impossible.

EDP’d SinX means you die if you can’t disarm them. (And let’s face it, you don’t just see sinx waltzing up to you uncloaked with edp and sl saying “let’s have a fair fight ?”)

You’ll need Horong accessory for this match. If you can’t afford that, then you’re stuck relying on raw instinct to figure out where they’re going to come from out of cloak. It’s not too hard with your average sinx to be honest, most of them will invariably try to sonicblow you straight out of cloak. Even if they try to grimtooth you, that’s no big worry. Just tank it until you can walk out of their range, and pin them down with rapidshower as they unhide to get closer to you.

Desperado knocks them out of cloak but don’t rely on it unless they turn out to be the aforementioned predictable sinx. Don’t try to tank SBs, Dust>RS harassment once they pop out.

Have your cranial on, 90% of the time.

You might have to pot if your reflexes are slow. But realistically, against the average lro sinx, if your reflexes are slow you’ll get edp’d in the face. Better luck next time.

High Priest

Fighting a godly geared HP is hard.

Fighting your average PvP priest is annoying but not impossible. It’s pretty funny sometimes too. They never seem to get the idea to safety wall desperado, and if they get stuck in the middle of it, getting out is difficult. Laugh as you pin them down with a predictable strategy and end up killing them. If you have a magnum break clip then you can knock them out of safety wall, since you have a ranged weapon equipped it counts as a ranged attack. One they’re out, rub it in their nose by desperadoing them from within their own safety wall for extra laughs. Any status you can lay down on them is worth investing in, anything to keep them from having a chance to out-heal your desperado.

Clown/Gypsy

Disarm will render your typical Arrow Vulcan Clown useless.

Again cranial switching will be your best tool.

Tarot might be troublesome but it relies on chance so its not all that bad.
As far as Gypsy goes, the worst thing they’ll probably try to do is stun you after you take their weapon off. What then, a few more chances for tarot? Maybe they inflict confusion on you? Nothing to worry about. If you can’t disarm them though, then you’ll have to rely on hiding out of their AV (unless they have neigh-instant cast, which a *good* clown/gypsy should) Clowns and gypsies are rarely prepared to handle silence from my experience. It’s also fun to hide, and stay hidden until they come up to unhide you with improve concentration, then unleashing desperado hell.

Creator

No real tactic, You can kill average vanils running around pvp but AD will definitely rape you.

In 10x server it is common for creators to use bombs for casual PvPing, even if it is wasted on a lolslinger. If you can disarm them and they don’t have instant cast then you may stand a fighting chance, but even after that, they can always ress their homunculous, and let’s face it, when it comes down to it, they can carry more pots than you can, and have more firepower in their arsenal, not to mention a much higher def. capability.

Stalker

50/50 chance to get stripped or to kill them while try’re trying to strip.
Fairly easy matchup. If they go for a straight up doublestrafe spam match, take them on, you can waste them with Rapidshower rather easily. The worst thing that can happen is they flee a few. If their flee is getting pesky you can always invest in a mummy card or two, just to keep laying the hits on them. Keep them at a distance, just for the purpose of frustrating them. It’s true that you have a decent chance to beat them with desperado before they divest you, but the more damage you chip off them before they close in on you, the greater your chance of ‘sealing the deal’ if they do get right up next to you. If they take your gun off, it’s over. You may as well sit down and spam /sob and hope they take pity on you. …But they probably won’t.

Professor

Pretty hard to kill a professor in 1 vs 1. They have a lot of stuff to counter whatever you try to pull. I could never kill a decent/good professor so I won’t give any theory based shit on what you could do. By now you probably have the basic idea of how to fight a spell-based class though, so I’ll leave that to you.

Champ

Champs are always a fun fight. If they’re not trying to go straight for asura (not offering a strategy for that, if you don’t know how to deal with that then you shouldn’t be reading) then they’ll constantly be hiding in their own pneuma. If they try to throw spirit sphere at you, either hide out of it or walk right into their pneuma with them and give them a nice desperado hug, then dust them away and keep the pressure on. Any ranged class is all about keeping them at a distance and keeping the pressure on, even if your best skill is technically close range. That’s always an easy kill, since most don’t seem to understand that desperado is a close range skill. The worst thing they can do if you go to duck into their pneuma is a raging push palm strike, and that’s keeping you at distance anyway, so that’s your prerogative. They may try to make a combo of it with a quick-cast tss so make sure you time your hide perfectly after the push palm to avoid a 2-hit combo, rather than going immediately for a hit after the push palm.

Ninja

A good ninja will require some thinking. An average ninja will be dead meat in 3 seconds.

Bull’s eyes is your best friend in order to kill a ninja, as it bypasses Cicada Skinshed. Triple action will pierce it as well. If, for some reason, you do have agi, just pin them down with normal hits using status guns. Keep them pinned against a corner until you can time a skill like fullbuster or rapid shower between their rebuffing.

A horong clip is very useful.

This matchup is heavily based on the GS player’s reflexes.

Paladin

This matchup is HARD but not completely impossible. the result will basically depend on who has better gears, you will probably have to pot, since he will probably pot.

Against Martyr’s Reckoning (MR) paladins, be at full defense mode until he’s used up the 5 hits, switch from your cranial valk to start desperado. When he’s able to MR again switch back to cranial. If you do pot this encounter is rather simple and gear based.

A linked Paladin is much more annoying but easier to tank, especially if you have Adjustment(A.K.A GS panic)
the only drawback is that in 1 vs 1 it is harder to stay close to 1 and Desperado the him to death.
A nice disarm can really screw them up.

Do not use silver bullets against paladins. Bloody if you have the zeny to spare, otherwise stick to regular bullets. Status is your best friend in a battle against a paladin. Even just a single curse will be good. Keep them moving slow, throw on anything, and I mean anything that you can. Put them to sleep, stun them for 1/10th a second, poison them. Anything you can do to gain the upper hand against a paladin, do it. Hide anything with a cast time can be hidden, anything instacast, you’d better be ready to tank. Desperado will be your biggest damage dealing attack due to defending aura, and even that, on a decent-geared pally will only do between 500-700 damage per hit. Not to mention getting close to them is risky. If you can chew up a paladin, then congratulations, you don’t need to be reading this guide anymore.


7. WoE: First Edition

The best in RO, Woeing as a Gunslinger and actually doing something meaningful during it, as mentioned before requires certain prerequisites:

  • Fully geared (That is, proper weapons, full reductions and def reaching anywhere from 45-50 def while cranial’d.)
  • An organized guild with people who cares(hardest thing to find)
  • Knowledge of how certain classes work, and those classes knowing how you work.
  • Complete usage of Battle Mode. We’re talking every last key of it. If you have gaps in your battlemode hotkeys, you don’t have enough equipment/pots.


I think the Desperado explanation gives enough insight on what you’re supposed to do, and how, I don’t wanna do all the thinking for you since that’s not
what this guide is for. Refer to the desperado explanation for information on who you should kill and when.

Just some stuff you should keep in mind:

  • You’ll have your Cranial valk equipped a lot more than your guns.
  • You won’t waste time with classes other classes can kill easier.
  • You don’t desperado in precast.
  • Magic Strings Full Buster can be effective for that.
  • Camping the emp is your real role. That’s all I’ll say.


8. End of the Line

That is the end of this guide for now; I doubt I’ll ever update it unless skill mechanics are changed and Woe SE.
Like I initially said this guide is meant to at set people on the right track, shedding light on common misconceptions and common mistakes in builds .This guide may seem completely pvp and WoE oriented but that is not true, the build and stat allocation detailed above is a highly efficient tool for every RO aspect, especially in a party.

I hope it helps. If anyone experienced has something to say, add, or whatever, by all means feel free to do so.
Same goes to anyone with questions.

  11. Hi, i have read ur build, and its acually pretty good, in fact, the best i read, and most complete. But i have a question:

    “Revolvers

    Used for rapid shower and triggering desperado. A +10 double bloody Western outlaw is the best you can get.”

    Why, is the western outlaw the ebst option, if its effect is to:

    “Increases HIT and Attack Speed depending on the AGI of the player.”

    In this guide, you tell us that AGI is not important, and we dont need it. Why is it the best option?

    Thank You

  12. I have a +8 double bloody western outlaw and you guys are right, it is the best you can have. I have respect’d my gunslinger several times and used the different builds with different guns, so far the outlaw out preforms all the compition.

    (Report comment)

  15. Alright guys, here’s the deal. Neither Blue nor I knew the guide was here, so if you’re upset that we haven’t gotten back to you, that would be why.

    Some quick answers to some of the questions:

    Infernos can be used with bullseye. Bullseye will kill ninjas through their defensive spell.

    Western outlaw is the second most powerful in raw damage as far as revolvers, by two points, and the added agi bonus is huge even with a little agi. (getting thirty agi or so to reduce cast animation delay is a good idea. It also adds hit apparently, and comes with two slots without having to go through a quest in order to get it.)

    Apparently inferno works with triple action as well? Not sure if that’s as viable as our ninja-killing tactic, but if it works, it works.

  18. Star gladiators? They flying kick into you and start hitting you with their warmth? You could go with two choices:

    Try to outdamage their kicks with desperado, or

    Magnum break + dust, then keep them at distance and pick them off with rapid shower + full buster

    My knowledge on star gladiators is kind of lacking, despite having played one in the past, but I feel the second strategy I listed should probably do you the best.

    YOU CAN make desperado with inferno WITHOUT switching to spheres and WITH switching to spheres , iuno WHERE you tried but that place fails , I play GS for more than 2 years total and I am sure I know it better…Maybe because I the switch hundrets of times per day?

  29. This build is for Gunslingers that camp the emperium. in a serious WOE guild you will spend most of your time sleep talking alone with the emp.

    And is USELESS in WOE SE, because you cant fire hits as fast as you can with AGI to provoque alt status to the other guilds.

    Thats the new role of a WOE gunslinger in a decent WOE server 99/70 to be a serious alt stat dealer.

    I use metaller cards to shut up champs, wizz and Priests and Creas, and also use Curse to slow down and locate SINXS and Stalkers.

    Another way to combat en WOEs is to carry a Gatling with two peco egg cards do Gat Fever and Last Stand to deal damage to the barriers, two Orc skel for the emp(Almost never).

    Dont rebuild AGI/DEX Guns for modern WOEs I already do it and its not worthy.

  35. a few things
    Gunslinger’s Panic/Adjustment
    “a fun skill” … this is one of the best skills, why? in WoE SE the ranged damaged is really important, so 20% less ranged damage is really nice, with a few cards and gears u may take 85% less ranged damage (noxious, alligators, horn, this skill and 10% from battle ground armor set) a creator does 1800 damage against u with 130 int.

    Disarm
    Excelent skill, specially againt a clown, if u find a char without FCP. Really nice skill for battle ground.

    Spread Shot
    maybe useless as a mobing training skill, but it works over land protection (desperado dont work over a LP), yes with a 9×9 area of effect u may hit a whole land protector and u may do some status, using bloody bullets and 2 status cards.

    (Report comment)

  36. An interesting guide, but it appears to be flawed or confusing in places.

    I’m referring to your skill suggestions which aren’t possible to create with the number of job levels the GS has in official RO. For example, you state Single Action is a useless skill and should be avoided, however it cannot be avoided if you want to get Trigger Happy Shot.

    Are you suggesting that a GS gets a selection of those skills instead? If so maybe that should be clarified, especially as you mix and match them in your PvP description.

  43. @Blue yea it’s outdated, not very terrible though.
    GS new role in WoE SE is a status inflicter *Spread Shot with status wep*, it can also be a supportive DD at barricades breaking *Rapid Shower/Full Buster*.But gunslingers doesn’t need AGI still, they need atk speed.As long as you’ll be in a good guild, you’ll get bragi+sunset, so your atk speed will be high enough and your delay will be almost none, allowing you to spam skills as fast as your fingers lets you *same as crea with AD*.And you still need a high VIT for WoE SE, if you don’t want to get stun locked.
    Here’s a stat build for WoE SE I would use:

    The 130 dex is kept for damage on cades, you can swap one gator acc for sheriff’s badge if you feel like and redudce dex to 120, increasing agi/ing/str if you want to.But as long as you’ll get both songs, you can spam greatly.

  47. This guide is not that good for several reasons

    First of all the guide says that agi/dex slingers are no good, but I say that’s bullshit. My agi gunslinger has proven his value in both mvp hunting & pvp because of his very high aspd which exceeds those of snipers & sinx
    Vit/dex slingers actually can’t hunt most mvps cuz gunslingers are not really that tough. plus a lot of strong mvps are melee and change target so when a gs moves in close to desperado, he gets pwned. remember that gs are too soft to hunt most MVPs ALONE

    second why does the author recommend Western Outlaw for a vit/dex build?! The Western Outlaw gives additional hit & aspd DEPENDING on your AGI. this gun is worthless to a Vit/Dex build since it has NO agi. better use a two slot Garrison which is stronger.

    third the guide condemns a lot of skills.The following are stated by the author as impractical:

    Last Stand is worthless to a vit/dex, but USEFUL to a agi/dex build. (which is by the way is NOT a weak build)

    Level 9 Single Action actually helps your accuracy a lot since almost all handguns except Western Outlaw (which is USELESS to a vit build) have -10 hit

    Wounding Shot is a good skill cuz it triggers Bleeding, a very deadly status since it takes a lot hp per second and can’t be cancelled by almost anything. it’s a fatal mistake to underestimate it

    Triple Action is needed by Grenade Launcher slingers since it allows the gs to shoot 3 grenade spheres in a row with just one coin and a few sp.

    Coin Fling is not good for pvp but useful for pvm when battling non-boss mosters.

    (Report comment)

  48. I bet when if the author’s gs and mine pvp this will what happen: we both see each other on the map and he starts moving close. I activate last stand which turns my aspd into from 186 to 190 and start shooting him with normal attacks using my western outlaw.He tries to use rapid shot on me, but he can’t because of he keeps flinching from my nonstop barrage of bullets.before he knows what’s happening, he is already on the floor.
    If he does get close then I use desperado on him and he will do the same. but since i have way higher flee then he will miss some and I’ll still pwn him

    (Report comment)

  49. @Leoknight

    1)Western Outlaw is lvl 3 weapon, garrison is lvl 2.Upgrading Western outlaw to +7 gives him atk around same as a +10 garrison.

    2)There’s not a single aspect in game aside of soloing and atk speed in which a vit GS can’t outperform agi GS.That being said vit GS’s are superior.Also vit GS’s gets some agi nowdays for WoE SE.

    3)Last Stand can be used by modern vit GS’s while they’re on bragi in CERTAIN situations, to reduce their animation delay and increase their dps, which btw, again allows vit GS’s to outperform agi ones in every way.

    4)Single action is useless above lvl 5.You don’t miss in WoE anyways and skill points can be invested in much more useful skills.

    5)Wounding Shot is as useful as Cracker…Which is useless.Bleeding is a terrible status *if you want it so much, use blood bullets instead of silvers and fail even more*

    6)From knowing a bit about both Blue and QJ I’ll just say this, no agi GS has a chance to win a pvp against any skilled vit gs, god damn it, any vit gs at all.Honestly I would just disarm you and poke to death instead of just dropping you with a single full buster.

    Finally:Anything what agi GS can do, a hunter/sniper can do better.If you want to play GS and try to be even a little bit useful with it, take an advice and make a vit one.True though that guide is outdated a lot, so the build will need different stats alocation *including agi*

  50. Graver knows whats up~
    Just reading his replies shows me he has the right idea of what GSs do nowadays where it matters, WoE and battlegrounds.

    Pvp is a joke, enjoy getting ganked or ganking others to grow your e-cock, PvM is a lifeless grindfest where only your stubborn newcomer would use a slinger to hunt, this shit is mad old though, no arguments there, I find it quite outdated, I actually posted an update version up for revision agesago. never saw it posted here again. Last stand has its uses, yeah.

  51. @Blue

    hey I’m a friend of @Leonknight in real life.
    we both have lvl99 gunslingers, mine is vit/dex build while his is agi/dex

    we both WoE using our slingers, despite people saying that gs are no good.we are happy to prove them wrong when Leon hitlocks people with his 190 aspd, and when I drop people by spamming full blast while our guild’s bard casts magic strings.

    His build isn’t worthless because we already pvp’d before. In the first round I was able to kill him by using 3 trigger happy shots and a lvl 10 full blast, but during the second he pinned me down with his high aspd causing me to lose. third round was a tie when we both got to desperado range ^^

    @Leonknight is wrong about some things though:

    westen outlaw is better than a garrison because it is a lvl 3 weapon

    last stand can be used by vit/dex build too

    (Report comment)

  52. Blue here. For the record, only misinformed players will tell you GSs are a worthless woe class. k lemme reply to you.

    A)Hitlocking,is not what a GS does for his guild in woe, not because it doesn\’t work, but rather because a GScould be doing more useful things.

    B)Spamming fullblast is indeed a smarter move and a passive roll you can assume, however it stopped being one of the “main” functions of a GS in Woe SE. GSs nowadays are mostly recruited to use spreadshot and Status people(mainly casters and low vit classes such as creo) and interrupt casting over the massive AoE it has. for this purpose, builds do revolve on getting high aspd, high enough to hit 17x with shotguns. but this is something I wrote in the guide which never got uploaded here lol, Spreadshot is just one function though there are several other things you can do~

    C)Pvp is situational, if you want to pvp with slingers that’s fine lol, most people just get a sinx, like the scenario you laid out doesn’t really prove anything, but think what you will, too lazy to discuss this.

    D) Don’t take to heart whatever it is I wrote up there in this guide, I made this like. 3 years ago? lol this is how I had fun, if you guys have fun doing whatever else in woe/pvp/bg that’s fine, you don’t have to try and convince me of your ways~ I know my guide is written in a fashion where it entirely bashes agi and tries to convince others but lol seriously lets not even bother too argue, the game isn’t worth it.

    and hmm if you guys want to know, I gathered all the current “lolexperience” I have by playing in visionRO v1, a highly competitive server back then, which allowed me to try all sorts of shit with GS since everything was readily available.

    @Ron@leonknight if you’re having fun doing things the way you’re doing them, that’s fine, keep it up, I might think there are other useful things which you could be doing for a guild, but that’s just me, last thing i’m interested on is defending my point of view regarding an online game lol~

    (Report comment)

  53. actually both our slingers also use status guns in WoE, Leon using a cursing western outlaw & me a cursing black rose. but still our primary role is dealing damage .I use a +10 Soldier Shotgun (it took me months playing Battlegrounds to get this) which is very damaging against opponents, even the 3rd jobs.

    Even though your guide is outdated, it still has some good points though:

    Gatling guns are still suck now like before. Leon never uses them since a Western Outlaw is faster and does not require you to use Gatling Fever, a skill that reduces your walk speed & flee a lot. plus Chain Action helps in hitlocking people

    Magical Bullet is a waste of skill points cuz silver bullets are better to use on ghosts than this skill

    Cracker is just a cutesy skill because of it’s low chance to hit

    switching between guns & cranial shields is still a practical technique to use in WoE

    and, in a Woe whit a good guild, in strings, you can Last Stand w/o delay and start the hell of damage…
    unfortunately, nowadays woe requires to slinger rely most on RS or FB…Desperado is kind sucking now…

  67. Well,can anyone help to make the “marksman” build popular?It is a specialist branch of the rifle slinger and this build uses the long considered (maybe still for some)useless and impractical “Long Barrel Rifle”.It is basically an AGI/DEX build with 190 aspd,rifle skills and a specified weapon.It is the build I am currently using and don’t go saying “lol,this build of yours is as useless and impractical as the rifle it is based upon” because I am doing fine with over 30 kills in Krieger von Midgard.In fact,I am perhaps THE only rifle slinger to reach 99/70 in perhaps the whole of Ragnarok Online!Marksman built slingers functions like a Falconer Hunter (minus the AOE aspect) and thus is also known as Autotracker Gunslinger.If you want,I can post other specialist builds for other kinds of gunslingers.
    *Note the name as in parody of the meme “Nice Boat!”.If in doubt,Google it!

  70. Any chance of getting that updated guide? Couldn’t you just post it somewhere else and link to it here in the comics?

    Even a pastebin link would do, really.

  71. Seriously guys,can anyone tell me a reasonable reason (haha) why the rifle build is SO not popular,other than “Desperado/Full Blast kicks Tracking’s ass!” and “I can kill you by the time you finished cast Tracking!”?!

  74. Main attribute is dex. It is how much damage you dealt. The 2nd attr is agi, this is how fast you deal it..
