*NOTE*
This guide is the result of many-many-many years of playing RO as an hunter and then as sniper (when i went to un-officials), as such, i’ve spent quite some time making it/correcting it and i keep updating it with the new things i find out/or people tells me (you learn something every day, even after years of playing).
This said, if you want to put my guide on your forum/site or any other kind of public thing, you can feel free to do it, as long as you give me credit for it and send me an e-mail with a link to the site/forum (ramzah@hotmail.it), i won’t call S.W.A.T. if you steal my guide of course… But still… Why would you have to steal other’s doing to get praised for something you never did?
*END OF THE NOTE (Time to get started…)*

1. The Class -
Hunter/sniper is a very eintertaining job to play with if you get used to it, it doesn’t have high hp, but long ranged attacks and traps makes it a dangerous enemy in pvp and pvm.
I’d say hunter has the most survivability over most classes pvm.
Also, when you turn sniper you will get the powerful Falcon Assault and True Sight skills, with them you can oneshot most classes (even trans if not well-equipped).

Job Bonus Status Points At JLV 50(Hunter):
STR +4
AGI +6
VIT +2
INT +4
DEX +10
LUK +4

Job Bonus Status Points At JLV 70(Sniper):
STR +4
AGI +11
VIT +3
INT +5
DEX +14
LUK +8

2. The Pros/Cons -
Pros-
They have great survivability if played well, can kill MVPs even at early levels (I was killing Atroce as level 70-80 hunter).
Ankle Snare is your best friend for pvm and pvp (versus melee), it can stop MVPs and mini-bosses (for half time but still works..), after ankle snare comes Shockwave Trap, your best friend for pvp against magic users, 2-3 of those and you can kill any monk/priest/crusader.
LOTS, and i repeat.. LOTS of possible builds and variety, we could say snipers has got a build for every situation…

Cons-
Very poor hp, a level 90 sniper with 1 vit only gets about 5k hp, cannot do much other than trapping the emperium room in woe due to long range redux, it tends to die easily in pvp if you use any build different than FA (with bow you can’t use shields..).

4. Job Quests
For information about Archer/Hunter job quests, visit http://ratemyserver.net/quest_db.php?type=60000

5. Leveling Tips -
First 10 levels as novice aren’t hard, just stick to novice grounds untill you are job lvl 10, use your novice potions and you’ll be just fine.
You can now turn archer, do the quest and get ready to go to payon dungeon!
Inside payon dungeon, kill the skeletons and zombies with silver arrows, when you get level 10 double strafing, you can start off killing Poporings and other stuff.
Focus on maxing dex for now and keep leveling in payon dungeon or you can get fire arrows and try Floras in Prontera Field, untill you are about lvl 40, now get your fire arrows (you can buy them at sunken ship dungeon) and go to either Einbroch or louyang (i prefer Einbroch since less ppl go there and Geograpers can’t move, also, there are no mantis around, but if you get bored you can move from a place to the other one.)
Go 1 map north of einbroch or 1 map south of louyang.
Kill everything in sight untill you are high enough to become hunter, do the quest and go back to geographers! xD
Yeah, this will be boring, but worth it…
(TIP: If in your server there is a warp to ice dungeon, you can go there and kill muscipulars, they’r better than geos since they die faster and give just a little less exp, but bring flywings for gryphons and galliones!)
Once you turn hunter, you stick to geographers/muscipulars a little more, untill you get ankle snare, once you get that skill, you can go everywhere you want without help! :)
You can go nifflheim, Glast Heim prison, Clock Tower, Sphinx level 4, Abbey, Rachel dungeon.. everywhere you like and you get good exp.

*NOTE*
I exped at Geos till level 97 (yeah 97..) and i’ve found out that they are best exp, since you can kill them in almost no time, and they give good exp (about 0.04% per kill).
*NECESSARY NOTE: When i exped to geos till level 97 the geos map was BUGGED, geos kept spawning in the bottom right corner, since the bug is now fixed you might want to go for Anubises.*
*UPDATE*: For higher level monsters you might want to go to Anubises untill they give you decent exp and you have maxed your job level, then you can go to Odin temple and/or Thanatos higher floors (Traps are a must).

Then i went to Thor dungeon with party.
(With a priest and both of you using Pasana + Fire elemental resist potion it shouldn’t be a problem, if you have assumptio the potion is not required.)
*UPDATE*: Best gear for Thor Dungeon- (You can solo in there with this gear at an high enough level).
Ulle’s Cap – Nightmare Card
Panties[1] – Pasana Card
Undershirt[1] – Jakk Card
Burning Bow – No Card
Brooch[1]x2 – Kukre Card
Binoculars/Sunglasses[1] – Nightmare card
Fricco’s Shoes/Boots[1] – Iron Fist Card

Once you reborn, repeat all the process..

MISC. TIPS -
When you get ankle snare, always try to fight slow monsters, so you have time to trap, and if they are fast, make a column/line of traps, so as soon as 1 disappear, they get trapped again, rinse and repeat..
(I kill most quick minibosses this way, just recently killed thanatos minions alone with this trick.)

Arrow Shower trapping -
When you place a trap, if you arrow shower on it, it will move!
This can turn quite usefull in pvp if you learn how to do it well (I AM DA TRAP MASTA!).
*NECESSARY NOTE: In WoE you can not knockback other players nor be knockbacked, this applies to traps too, so you can not move traps in WoE*

EXAMPLE:
You are fighting a priest, he pneuma, what do you do now? “Eww! i’m screwed!”
You simply put a shockwave or a land mine between you and him, arrow shower between you and the trap, and the trap will go toward the priest hitting him!
I killed countless pneuma users this way.

Mine Stacking – “OMG?”
This is an application of the Arrow Shower Trapping trick, it is mostly used with land mines.

*NOTE*
Because of the formulas/Modifiers, Land Mines results in the strongest damaging-traps of your skill set.

Let’s get to the interesting part…
Moving a trap is simple, but, what if you move a trap, place another trap where the other was, and arrow shower it ON TOP of the other one?? “W00tz! They stack!”
Exactly, this way, you can oneshot everything and i mean EVERYTHING! Even Game Masters (If they have legit equips of course..).
After stacking enough mines (Max is about 20-25 be4 they start to turn back to traps), you can move them all at once, that means you can move about 20 traps under some1 and… “BOOM!”

*NOTE: Counting that every Land Mine does roughly 2k dmg (with the right build/equip), 2k*20 = 40k dmg!!!

*SECONDARY STACKING TRICKS*
If you are facing some melee character in pvp (Whitesmiths or berserk lord knights are a good example.), and they have little to none vit but they have high agi (After some testing it looks like agi REDUCES ankle snare trapping time, need confirmation on this one.)
You can do the following trick:
Ankle snare the opponent (let’s make it a whitesmith), the whitesmith won’t be able to hit you if you’r not in range, but he will soon get out of the trap, if he has very little vit, you can do this: Ankle snare -> SANDMAN TRAP him to make him sleep (The chance and duration of sleep is reduced by vit/luk), then pile up in this order: -> 5-6 land mines and 1 Sandman trap.
This way the opponent will get the big damage from land mines (taking our previous example: 2k*5 = 10k dmg) and if he’s still alive he will be put directly back to sleep!!

6. Common/rare items most snipers use -
It greatly depends on your build, so i’ll put everything in the builds section.

7. Builds – *UPDATED*
As i said be4, sniper has a lot of possible builds and applications of each build, but here are the main ones with theyr stats at level 99:

AGI/DEX -
STR 10
AGI 99
VIT 3
INT 20
DEX 99
LUK 1

Comment -
This build can easily reach 190 aspd with the right equip, you choose whether to go for agi or dex equip, but i’d go dex geared over agi for more dmg.

Gear -
Head – Apple of Archer (^.^) or if you want agi, ulle’s hat with nightmare card in it/Sunglasses with nightmare card for agi, sunglasses with elder willow for dex (the card gives int).
Body – Panties for agi, tight/odin’s blessing with marc/pasana/swordfish/peco card
Weapon -
Rudra Bow if you have the will/money to get it, Else a gakkung bow with anything in it is just fine. Composite bow[4] with 2 hydra and 2 skeleton worker cards for pvp (NOT 3 hydra/1 skel worker).
Garment -
Undershirt for agi, Falcon muffler/slotted garment or anything for dex.
Shoes -
Fricco Shoes (aka Freya’s Shoes) for agi, anything for dex.
Accessories – Brooches with kukre cards for agi or Vesper Cores, gloves with zerom cards for dex.

Falconer Build -
STR 1
AGI 60
VIT 1
INT 74
DEX 70
LUK 70

Comment -
Quite powerful indeed, do not understimate it’s power, it has low aspd but falcon does huge damage and attacks quite often.
It’s downside is, due to low vit/agi, it doesn’t dodge at all and have very poor hp (at lvl 99 6100 hp), so you most likely will use traps a lot, or have a priest to support you, still, this kind of sniper can be deadly vs mobs, another downside is it won’t damage ghost at all…

Gear -
Head – Apple of Archer or ulle’s hat with Elder willow card/Binoculars/Sunglasses with elder willow.
Body – Tight/odin’s blessing with rocker/marc/pasana/peco card
Weapon – Rudra Bow if you have the will/money to get it, Else a gakkung bow with anything in it is just fine, you won’t use bow much anyways.
Garment – Anything is good. (Something for hp boost is good)
Shoes – Just anything. (Something for hp boost is good)
Accessories – Gloves with zerom cards or Earrings.

Hybrid -
STR 1
AGI 72
VIT 50
INT 45
DEX 97
LUK 1

Comment -
This is the classic “DS Spammer”, this build takes full advantage of double strafe, it has good hp and good aspd, but doesn’t exceed in neither of the 2.
Can deal a lot of damage in a short span of time. Good for MVPing and pvp.

Gear -
Same gear as AGI/DEX build focused on dex.

Falcon Assault – (aka FA Build)
STR 1
AGI 1
VIT 80+
INT 50-60+
DEX 90+
LUK 1

Comment -
This is the build most used in pvp, It focuses on using the FA skill to one-twoshot the enemy, it is the strongest skill you will get as sniper, the build has very good hp and damage output, but lacks in flee/aspd and tactics.
Due to low aspd, the only thing you will be doing with this build is FA, and that is all. (aka “noob FA spammers” how many times have you heard these words?)

Gear -
Head – Beret/Feather Beret/Binoculars/slotted sunglasses wih some good card (kiel? xD)
Body – Goibne’s Armor/Sniping Suit/Peco odin’s blessing, marc/ed/pasana/swordfish.
Weapon – Main Gauche[4] with 4 fabre cards/bazerald and guard[1/valky shield] with Thara Frog/Horn Card.
Garment – Muffler with raydric/noxious card/deviling(if u have that much luck..)/survivor’s manteau(or if you want the best a wool scarf with the above cards).
Shoes – Vidars/matyr/green ferus boots/ or for the top: Tidal shoes with General Egnigem Cenia Card (MVP)
Accessories – Expert Rings/2 gloves or 2 rosary with alligator cards/zerom cards.

SharpShooting Sniper – (aka SS)
STR 1
AGI 41
VIT 60
INT 24
DEX 91
LUK 67

Comment -
A very interesting build not many snipers use, it is good for mobbing, that mean you’ll have a priest gather 20-30 mobs in nifflheim and kill them all in few shots, the problem is it uses bow, so it’s not very effective in pvp (no shield..).
Anyways, you shouldn’t understimate this build, it ignores def since it uses crits, is almost spammable and has aoe. (usually hits for 3-4k dmg in pvp, i once killed 4 ppl at once with it…).

Gear -
Head – Apple of Archer/Beret/Binoculars
Body – Goibne’s Armor/Peco armor, marc/ed/pasana.
Weapon – Gakkung or pvp bow with multiple race/element cards (example: +dmg on medium/big monsters and + dmg to fire and demi-human monsters). (Composite bow[4])
Garment – Muffler[1] with raydric/noxious card.
Shoes – Vidars/boots[1] with matyr/green ferus.
Accessories – Gloves with Zerom cards.

Ramzah’s Build -

STR 1
AGI 99
VIT 15
INT 20-25
DEX ranging from 60 to 80 (Depends on the current level, goal is to have at least 250-270 hit)
LUK 40-50

Comment -
Just a variant of the hybrid build, this is the build i like the most, with this build you should teorically have 190 aspd and use your falcon enough often to deal some good damage with it (even tho not as much as a pure falconer). With this one build you can FA (You should have enogh dex to do so.), you can DS quickly (tho damage won’t be as high as a pure agi dex), you have some “decent” hp, your falcon should attack pretty often.
The only thing to note with this build is, it’s nothing special when you are alone, but if you have a priest buffing you… (Agi, bless, gloria, that’s all you need) You’ll be a real beast!

Gear -
Head – Ulle’s Hat with nightmare card, If your server has the quest: Slotted sunglasses with nightmare card.
Body – Panties (lol?)
Weapon -Any bow will do, but considering your lack of dex, go for higher dmg bows (gakkung, hunter bow, rudra.), you won’t really need cards, unless you have a shecil or doppel card, if that’s the case, try to enchant slot a hunter bow.
Garment – Undershirt, if you can slot it, put a bapho jr card in it.
Shoes – Fricco Shoes
Accessories – Brooches[1] with kukre cards in them.

As you may have noticed, the biggest problem will be the ulle and the equipment slotting and you might still not like this hybrid build since it requires buffing to get to unleash it’s maximum power.

8. Questions & Answers -

Q. The Guide is well written, but why the hell do you need agi as a Sharp Shooter?
A. Mainly for survival, you might want at least some basic flee to avoid being hit-locked by aggressive monsters.

Q. Also, you don’t crit with SS. Ever seen a skill in RO critting the enemy?
A. Sharp Shooting is one of the few skills that does crit on enemies, i’ve tested it, believe me it does, just like Shadow Strike for Ninjas. (http://ratemyserver.net/index.php?page=skill_db&sk_name=shadow+slash& sk_search=Search)

Q. Isn’t Triple Bloody Boned (3x Hydra, Skel Worker) better than Double Bloody Double Boned?
A. No it isn’t due to the formula used to calculate damage with cards. (Reference: http://forums.roempire.com/showthread.php?t=68867)
Let me clarify this: Triple Bloody Boned Composite Bow gives 184% atk bonus and +5 atk, while Double Bloody Double Boned gives 182% bonus atk and +10 atk.
Knowing this we can assume the damage doesn’t really change much BUT, having lower dex means having less atk, thus that +10 atk from the second bow can be better than the first one and viceversa.
It depends on the build you refer to.
Ramzah’s build doesn’t have really much dex compared to an AGI/DEX build, so it’s better to get a double bloody/double boned compo bow.

Q. Since int works by multiples of 6 for sp regen, u could lower it to 18 which would let u put vit up to 6.
A. That’s just the base stats without the modifier, fact is that at max jlvl an hunter gets +4 int bonus, thus getting a total 24 int. :)

Q. Do u have stats for a sniper who just use trap as the main attack?
A. Just go max INT/DEX and add the leftovers to vit. That’s all you need.

Q. Very great guide, I didnt notice that land mines deal damage very high lol and how about the claymore trap isnt it useful too ?
A. Thanks! ^^, to answer your question…
Claymore Trap: [DEX/2+75] * [1+INT/100] * SkillLV damage
Land Mine: [DEX + 75] * [1 + INT/100] * SkillLV damage <– Definitely Better

Q. Is it true u can kill GMS with the stacking?
A. If they don’t use hax equip, yes. :)

Q. I would like a detailed explanation of how you managed to solo Atroce at such a low level because I would love to attempt it.
A. I wouldn’t reccomend it… It is true you can do it but it’s REALLY BORING anyways here’s how it’s done in short:
1- Find Atroce.
2- Start spamming DS from as far as possible.
3- If Atroce teleports go back to 1- else use a fly wing as soon as it gets close to you (keep in mind it might be closer than you think when spamming DS).
4- Go back to where you found Atroce and go back to 2-
5- Rinse and repeat till it’s dead, a priest with lex eatherna halves the required time.

If you find any mistake/error, or have any tip/suggestion feel free to post and i’ll be happy to add it.
Also… Any kind of appreciation is also welcome either by pm/post or e-mail (ramzah@hotmail.it), thank you for all the support! ^^

  1. Very good and detailed guide, you helped me a lot, thank you!!!

  2. Great guide, Ramzah!

  3. Yo I made GREAT use of this guode and I made a Version with Higher agi and vit of your build,Id say its far more balanced In My opinion and the falcon still attacks decently with 30 – 35 LUK

    The Build is

    Str 1
    Agi 90
    Vit 30
    Dex 85 ~ 90
    Luk 30 ~ 35

    Somewhat Like that.

    I find it interesting that the Vit around 30 Gives you DECENT HP and its quite possible to woe with the trap stacking you mentioned, I Lead a whole guild and we do awesome, Once again THANK YOU for all this great info and I hope you continue your research on the builds.

  4. forgot to add the 30 int XD!!

    (Report comment)

  5. Yes kineas, That build works as well but i’m not putting it in the guide because it’s pretty much a variant of my hybrid build,
    What i usually say to ppl who asks me for hunters/snipers builds is:
    Start with medium to high dex, get around 20-30 luk and AT LEAST 20 int, then increase agi untill you’r satisfied with your aspd and then increase your stats little by little accordingly to what style you like, (in that case vit if you want more hp, but i’d rather have more damage output), then again, rather than getting from 98 to 99 agi, you might want to spend the stats on luk or dex and compensate with a +1 agi equipment or card. (what i mean is, rather than spend 9 stat points on a stat, spend multiple stat points on a weaker stat so you get more bonuses.)
    Just out of curiosity, i tested out what’s the maximum hp a sniper can get with regular equips/buffs.
    The outcome?
    40538 hp on a lvl 96 sniper! xD
    Buffs used: apple song, gospel.
    Equip: Full goibne set and.. i forgot what else! xD
    Stats: 99 vit of course.
    It was fun standing in pvp with that many hp with like 5 ppl trying to kill me and a priest just healing me. xD

  6. Hmmm, can’t you use claymore (the one with a 5 x 5 cell boom) and mob stals (has done alot of mobs in RO)? If your an agi hunter it sould be good if the lag effect still works ( 20 stals + claymore trap = shitload of lag but a shitload of exp). If the monsters don’t stack where you go I’m srry for you.

    (Report comment)

  7. To effectively use traps besides ankle snaring you’r supposed to have high int/dex, that you won’t rly have as an agi hunter.
    So damage from claymore traps won’t be as expected, that changes if you have a friend mobbing for you while you stack lots of claymores. BUT, in my opinion, if you really want to mob as an hunter (pretty much easier with sniper with sharp shooting), you should be using blitz beat, since it is not affected by elemental properties (claymore is earth element, keep that in mind, mi gaos = 0 damage from claymore traps) and deals quite good damage, while not being affected much from int unlike dex (wich as an agi hunter u’r supposed to have).
    But anyways, it all depends on the situation, if for example you had to pick between blitz and claymore and you were mobbing hill winds (ofc, wind element) then claymore traps (earth element) would be your best choice.
    Hope this helped, for any more questions don’t hesitate to ask!

  8. Your FA build fails… why aren’t you using sniping suits and 2 expert rings? FA it’s the best build IMO. 15k HP, 6900 max FA damage, (can’t remember well but..) 1.5~1.6 seconds aftercast delay (?), land mine to it’s maximum potential, etc.

    (Report comment)

  9. Because this guide is supposed to be for lowrate servers, and it’s not really easy to obtain them, anyways since you pointed them out i’ll add them as rare items to obtain.
    About FA being the best build… IMO there’s no best build, it all depends on the situation and your gamestyle, i’ve seen pure DS snipers beat FA snipers with the same gear, so you should choose your build accordingly to your liking.
    (If you think it carefully… In the endgame, when you got the best gears in the game, pure DS owns FA build in pvp easily).

  10. sigh i’m gonna post the actual builds that you should be following for sniper builds, hunter builds you should just do 90agi 99 dex and distribute the rest between int and vit, whichever helps you lvl faster to get your way to 99 and trans to sniper.

    AD powerhouse sniper:
    dont make it complicated, snipers have the highest DPS in the game, why? because their damage relies on DEX! meaning the only other stat you need to get is agi, why you put 10 str into yours i dont know, carry more arrows or beast strafing, other way both pointless because there’s quivers and beast strafing is a completely different build (some what). 99agi/98dex (job70 dex bonus gives u the boost for 160 dex without needing 99dex with standard sniper gears). Put the rest in vit, ints not necessary when ur trying to do pure damage. Having more sp wont save you when an mvp is chasing you, but HP might.

    Falconer:

    AGI: 95+ there’s no question or grey area here, you’re not a falconer build if you dont have at least 95 agi giving you that 185aspd.

    Dex: roughly 80-85 dex will do the trick, get however much will give you a dex bonus according to the gears YOU plan to use. It’s situational. You can get this much dex as a sniper because well, you start out with more stat points to distribute and falcon eyes gives u an additional what, 10-12 crit (+10 crit and +5 luck) so you get a moderately higher damage than a hunter falconer (which should be the case, or else transing to sniper is stupid)

    Int: no more than 30, you get enough sp regen with even 20 int there’s no need to go high than 30, your points are better spent into mroe agi or dex for damage/aspd, your falcon will already do around 1120 damage with this much int, and that’s more than enough, if you dont wanna put it in dex/agi then put it into luck/vit

    Vit: 20-30vit will give you around 9k hp, you make the choice

    Luck: 40-60 luck depending on how you distributed your previous points. I personally would only get 40 because my bird with only 16 luck (but i use morrigane set) already flies like crazy, i have 80% crit so seeing crits is sexy, if you go with 40 luck you would pbb be able to obtain around 92-94 crit (using sharp arrows of course)

    PVP BUILD:

    this post is getting long so i’m just going to say the stats and you figure it out

    you’re either a survivalist or powerhouse, if you’re going to be a power house go with AD it’s the best in all situation in terms of DPS

    survivalist

    99Dex 80-85agi 50-60 vit, 0 int 0 luck. This is for advance players who are good at switching between their vast amounts of equipments (sword/mail breaker, guards/armors/immune/bow-master/bow/status arrows etc)

    (Report comment)

  11. Furby you based your builds off sniper only, mine were trying to cover both hunter/sniper, anyways i’ve put that 10 str on Agi/dex b/c of maximum weight increase, when in agi/dex i usually carry around many different bows/equipment that i switch around often, that’s why.
    And your falconer build pretty much resembles my personal hybrid (see ramzah’s build), but a PURE falconer relies ONLY on falcon damage, i agree that it’s not really good to have such low agi, yet i’ve only gave away BASIC stats, you can play around with equips, and you WILL NEED int as a falconer, i agree dex is important, but so is int as they both raise falcon damage even tho int does more than dex if i do remember correctly.
    Also, i’ve put stats that way because at the time i made this guide, i tought for it as for vs mobs only, i guess i should adjust it a bit or make a separate section for pvp builds, thanks for your comment.

  12. Wow thanks!It helps me alot about rethinking whether and how should I put the stats to my hunter!And plus,I suck at making traps…and I never saw the usefulness in them before(never used them),now that you’ve explained it,I felt like using them!

    (Report comment)

  13. Oh it’s difficult to post a comment on all “mistakes” I found, because that’s a lot xD”

    1. Falconer build got to much Int. If you stat in much luk it is a requirement that you will shoot single arrows on a target. For spamming bb/ds/etc. there is 40-50 allmost enough.

    2. FA Sniper with 90+ dex and 50-60 Int – awww D:_
    Int ist the the most important damage Dealer. More then 110 dex(with buff and equip) is so failed.. seriously.
    morpheus set in PvM > all.

    3. Sharp Shooting Snipers got more vit then your’s.
    And you forgot the most important thing to note: bragi!

    The delay of ss will pretty much reduced by bragi, because sharp shooting got cast time. Nearly every skill with cast time will effected by them. Unlike double strafing. Because the after cast delay will decreased by aspd. That’s why a 190 aspd sniper can spam much faster as a sniper with 160 aspd.
    With a good bragi 3 ss per second are possible.

    You worte on equip “Garment – Muffler with raydric/noxious card/survivor’s manteau.”

    Ya, sometimes my ss sniper feel the magic inside, but wearing surviviors manteau isn’t possible for archer cls.

    4. This is not “Ramzah’s Build”, this is an aspd/effect sniper build. The sniper is used to spam effects on a target and trying to hitlock them with the fast aspd and much falcon acitvity. Usable you wearing a wikibine tres card for xtra stripping (or 2 ;D).

    In PvP you have to use Composite bow with effect cards, because nobody will die by such low dex, not even high wizzies..

    Note:
    First try to find a correct name for the build. If I have to read “Hybrid” , I have no idea what somebody is talking about. Call it ds/int hybride or something else.

    I don’t read the comment under this guide, because I’m not interessted in.

  14. I’m in the process of re-making this guide to clear up all mistakes/typos and add some more hints ppl gave me, thank you for all the support and comments, i’ll be posting the new guide soon! :3

    (Report comment)

  15. Sharpshooting sniper is the most used build in woe scenario. With 175-178aspd, 11k hp , 1k sp and at least 60crit with bonus (SS,gloria) plus, magic string you can easy kills a full party in a land vs land battle.
    Equip:
    Feather Beret
    Sunglases Willow or incubus (you need to max the sp)
    Sniping suit marc/evil

  17. The Guide is well written, but why the hell do you need agi as a Sharp Shooter? Sharp Shooting Delay is a After Cast Delay, not reducable by Agi. So omfgwtf -40 Agi! Also, you don’t crit with SS. Ever seen a skill in RO critting the enemy? So you don’t need to waste your Stat Poins in luk. Go for more Strength, a little bit more VIT, and a little bit more Int. You’r dmgoutput will be better ;) AND! This is something you should know: in my opinion, sharp shooters are the most played Snipers in WoE! Why? You hit multiple enemys, even if your DMG isn’t that high. You can cripple them to death with status bows ;)! Equipment should look like this:
    Feather Beret
    Evil Wing Ears
    Sniping Suit (PecoPeco, Marc, Swordfish, Pasana, ED)
    Composite Bow (Stat Cards)
    Tidal Shoes (Green Ferus)
    Wool Scarf (Noxious)
    2x Expert Rings (Alligator)
    No need for 160 Dex ^^

  18. Nice guide. I’ve actually started playing sniper now thx to this guide, but I have some questions.

    1) I’m using the agi/dex build and, just with the sniper buffs alone, my dex goes up to 143. My equips r : Ulle’s Cap (no card yet), Masquerade, Gangster Mask, Sniping Suit (Marc), Composite Bow (2x Hydra,2x Skel Worker), Wool Scarf (Noxious), Tidal Shoes (Matyr), 2x Gloves (Zerom). Can u suggest what I can get or change to make my dex higher?

    2) Isn’t Triple Bloody Boned (3x Hydra, Skel Worker) better than Double Bloody Double Boned?

    3) This is more of a suggestion but, while I was doing my stats to the specified amounts in ur agi/dex build I noticed I had some leftover points that could be used at least on vit so my final stats were :
    str: 10
    agi: 99
    vit: 3
    int: 20
    dex: 99
    luk: 1
    I was able to add a little bit of vit. Also, since int works by multiples of 6 for sp regen, u could lower it to 18 which would let u put vit up to 6. It’s not much but might be better than 1 vit i think. And something else that came to mind r that in some servers, like the main one I play on, arrows don’t waste. So, unless for some reason u use an agi/dex sniper for WoE, u could lower str to 2 and raise vit up to 13 ( inculding if u put int to 18). It would mean u would have to carry less trap if u use them, I personally don’t I’m a bit clumsy with traps still lolz, but more vit is always good.

    Thx for the guide ^__^

  23. I would like a detailed explanation of how you managed to solo Atroce at such a low level because I would love to attempt it.

  24. You got TOO BIG INT for Falconier Sniper dude.. Reduce it a bit.. I tell ya~

    (Report comment)

  25. Well…

    Geos are like one of the worst place to exp now… around lvl 60 you can easily go to louyang or hill winds (where you get much more money). Stings aren’t that bad as long as u have arrows and potions / priest on your back.

    Nameless island, Odins, Isis, Thanatos, Anubs are another spots where u can level efficiently (some of them requires party though).

  28. Holy Marcher Pradono, if u use that stat, i think the only problem is after cast delay because your agi is too low and so will aspd…i would recommened that stat but u also have to use either cecil card or doppel card. Well the truth is, i use that stat too and its really rocks :-D

  29. how about the archer combo?

    is it any good? for instance, i think the 20% bonus with cruiser + 2 hydra + skel worker stacks more dammage.

    correct me if im wrong

  31. if u managed to face hunter as your foe in pvp?
    what u will do?

    i’m still hunter and the following equips are dragon tail combo.
    it works great, but still my hunter can be killed with 2x DS.
    It deals 900-1100 damage to me.(compo+10 2Hydra2SW)
    it’s very hard to kill hunter with hunter but i’d love to found the equipment. Can u help me? Because it’ll end in a second.

    This is a common problem when some people are new in the game, they always give 99 to a stat.

    Is not about giving 99, is about making builds with equip, so you can use round numbers.

    You can or use a build with Blessing, Improve concentration and all the buffs you want, or you can do a build of equip and cards w/o buffs, but always looking for round numbers.

    In Other words: DONT USE THAT BUILD.

  37. im still gettting confused about the guide and what others say. im still a noob. i have high damage but i can be killed by bugs with just 3 attacks from it. i forgot to put some vit. i have ds to level 10 but its damage is 1k. what should i do to enhance my ds? any help please. good or bad comments accepted. free to speak anything you want. just tell me anything you know ill accept it with thanks.

  38. so all yall saying his builds suck, are replying with completely unrealistic builds to level. nobody can level a 99 vit 99 int archer without a full time priest protecting them or a leech party (youre probably all botting anyways), and even then your dmg would be so low at high level that very few people would put up with having you leeching their groups (like i said youre probably botting). sry but thats just an impossible build to make on anything other then exceptional occasions or a bard lol

    can anyone tell me which build is the fastest killing in pvm? seems like the ramzah one or the one that iRO Chaos posted for falconer would kill the fastest. im basically looking for a build to get to 99 as fast as possible (solo killing of course)

  39. I agree with the people above me. Airsoft snpeir rifles are merely AEGs that are bolt action. Unless you shell hundreds of dollars into upgrades the gun will preform just as well if not worst than a nice AEG. If I were you and like to be long range in airsoft get an AEG like an M14 or M16 and use it as a DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle). DM are basically the snpeirs of airsoft. My M14 out of the box shot farther than any bolt action snpeir or M4 I’ve fired.
