Sniper Builds (mini-guide)

As the title says, this is just a mini-guide about some builds of a sniper that i know of and i have used before.

I referred these builds from a 70/70/40 server (ArcanaRO)

Table of Contents:

[sn1] …… Falcon assault Build

[sn2] …… Strafer Build

[sn3] …… Agi, Superfast Sniper or Blitzer


Snipers are mainly used for hunting. They are easy to level up, Have a good DPS, and Elemental Advantage (arrows). People may think that snipers are “soft” and easy to kill but in reality, it depends. If you are a beginner and still don’t know what class to create, this may be the best one for you. Easy to play with and best for PvM.

[sn1] Falcon Assault, The MASTER TRAPPER

Basically, this build is used for WoE and PvP. Falcon Assault ignores is likely to ‘ignore’ defense and damage is affected by int. Has high hp and defense and can’t be killed easily. When participating in WoE, your role is a trapper.


Upper Head: +7 Feather Beret

Middle Head: Sunglasses[1] or Binoculars

Lower Head:

Armor: +4/7 valkyrie’s armor[1] and evil druid card

Left Hand: +4/7 Combat Knife or +10 main gauche and four fabre cards

Right Hand: +7 valkyrie’s shield and thara frog card

Garment: +7 wool scarf and raydric card

Footgear: +7 tidal shoes and green ferus card

Accessory1: rosary[1] and smokie card


Status this build doesn’t require dex to hit the enemy. have at least 100 vit, make a 70-80 int, some str for pots, traps, and gears for swapping. remaining for dex, or add them to vit, int or str. Those are the main stats. This buld requires you to step on a “Poem of Bragi” because of your low dex.

[sn2] Strafer Build

Basic build, this class can be used to hunt (PvM), MvP and PvP. Double Strafe is affected by atk and atk can be raised with dex and a little by str (i think 3 or 5 str =1 atk, idk xD) . Agi is required to spam DS. If you are a Strafer, you need to take advantage of your enemies’ element, race and size. What do I mean? There are Elemental Arrows/Bows/Cards capable of adding damage against certain monsters. There are also Race Cards and Size Cards.

PvM Equipments:

here, i suggest you use the Cruiser Card set for starters. (cheaper)

Upper Head: Apple of Archer

Middle Head: Binoculars

Lower Head:

Armor: Sniping Suit and anolian card

Left Hand / Right Hand: Composite Bow[4] and cruiser card

Garment: wool scarf and dragon tail card

Footgear: tidal shoes and merman card

Accessory1: gloves[1] and alligator card

Accessory2: gloves[1] and zerom card

*for the composite bow, there are still 3 slots available so you may try to experiment on damage enhancing cards depending on what enemy (race, size, element etc) or cards with special effects.

PvP Equipments:

strafer build is hard to use in pvp. You’ll easily be overpowered by your enemy because of your low defense and hit points. Snipers are very hard to dress up for pvp so you may try experimenting and using your own.

Upper Head: Apple of Archer or Feather Beret

Middle Head: Sunglasses[1] and marduk card

Lower Head:

Armor: sniping suit[1]

Left Hand / Right Hand: composite bow[4] and three hydra cards + skeleton worker card

Garment: wool scarf and raydric card

Footgear: tidal shoes and matyr or verit card

Accessory1: glove[1] and zerom card

Accessory2: glove[1] and zerom card

*there are people who uses elemental armors so silver arrow or oridicon arrow is the best choice here

MvP Equipments:

there are MvPs who uses silence or other annoying status skills. With Two strafer snipers, you can lock the mvp. Sometimes three snipers are needed, depends on the mvp’s movement speed. You should bring SP pots too, or try to bring a professor with you (soul change).

Upper Head: Apple of Archer

Middle Head: sunglasses[1] and marduk card or binoculars

Lower Head:

Armor: sniping suit[1] and porcelio card? lol

Left Hand / Right Hand: composite bow [4] and 3 abysmal knight cards + a minorous card

Garment: wool scarf and raydric card

Footgear: tidal shoes and verit card

Accessory1: glove[1] zerom card

Accessory2: glove[1] zerom card

*this may suck, but i tried bloodied shackle ball and shackles combo versus and MvP and dang! it’s effective! I did 12k double strafe against Atroce lol. you may also use cruiser card set here. it’s a lot cheaper :) for me, best card combo to be compounded in your weapon is 2 race cards, one size card and one element card.

Status: agi and dex are the main stat for strafers. if you need sp, spend the remaining points to int but if you want weight (and some addition to atk) put str. be careful in distributing status points. sometimes, you waste them unconciously. When I distribute status points, I always make sure that I used up all of them, 0 remaining.

[sn3] Agi, Superfast Sniper or Blitzer

OK. This is my favorite build. Spamming DS is harder than simply clicking once on the enemy lol. YES! I AM LAZY!!! Why is this my favorite class? Because it is more useful in hunting. It doesn’t need sp and has high evasion so less burden when hunting for itamzz. Not just for hunting (pvm), this is also useful for MvP!! I mean MvP lock. Agi snipers can MvP lock mvps ALONE. Whaaa?!! How? I’ll show you. This is my build for 190 aspd sniper! (max aspd hell yeah) This is Without foods. Just Sniper buffs, Blessing and Increase Agi. The ONLY downside in this build is that you need a lot of arrows. Don’t worry you can bring quivers LOL so basically, NO DOWNSIDE (pvm/pve only)


Upper Head: ghost bandana[1] or bunny top hat and nightmare card

Middle Head: Sunglasses[1] and another nightmare card

Lower Head:

Armor: pantie[1] and ancient mimic card

Left Hand / Right Hand: composite bow[4] / elemental bow[1] / Ixion Wings[1] / orc archer’s bow

Garment: undershirt[1] and bapho jr. card (you may try crest of the rider[1] set but it’s expensive)

Footgear: black leather boots[1] and male thiefbug card

Accessory1: vesper core 03 or brooch[1] and kukre card

Accessory2: vesper core 03 or brooch[1] and kukre card

*You will notice that most of these equipments are obtained/generated through socket enchanting but they’re not that hard to get. These Equipments are cheap and this is tested. This works. Party / Guilds hire me when they mvp hunt lol and its very fast when hunting. Just seeing the aspd makes you more excited hahaha

*we tried this against BEELZEBUB. 3 SNIPERS WITH THIS BUILD (to lock), 1 SNIPER w/ DS BUILD, a support HP and a Pally. we put evil druid card in armor and switch when we need to heal and also to avoid stone status. You don’t need to worry against his mobs, they will all miss trust me :D

*i also use this build when hunting valk shields alone (10% drop fack)

Stats: 99agi, 93dex, 36luk, 11str. or 99agi, 94dex, 36luk, 5str. Of course 99 agi because your an agi type. Dex adds aspd and luk because of the ancient mimic card. Also for blitz. Str? To carry your loots and arrows. Adds up atk too.

  3. wew, use str in snip did’nt increase an atk don’t ya?

  4. more STR, more pots…

  5. DEX should be max if u want to play damage builded sniper

  6. This is a helpful guide, and im gonna try your favorite build.

  7. u can get 190 aspd with theif card set too btw my friend is like an expert on sinx and he just transfers most of his agi sinx’s gear to his sniper for 190 aspd
    my sniper uses a cruiser card set with 2 abysmal knight 1 dropsera card and kukre and vanberk in ulle 189 is good enough for me lol

  8. @ech

    u noob? o_o observe it clearly. if your playing on a high rate server, there must be a stat reset. add hmm i think 5 str = 1 atk for snipers. noob lol

    that’s why there are str snipers (soul linked) which uses beast strafe skill (i think) and damage is based on str.

    yeah and agi for animation/after cast delay

    like on champ.. w/o agi, the snap or body relocation is soooooo boring. try stat reset and put 99 agi. seems like you’re using WPE with that snap dance lol (animation delay and aspd)

  9. @calvin
    if you’re using kukre card (+1 agi) on brooch, i think vesper core03 is better. gives same agi bonus (+3) and there’s a mdef too.

  10. I’m thinking about making a crit sniper, archer combo on a sniping suit + crest of rider+ black leather boots, the stats are about the same as your super agi build, he will obviously have less aspd but more crit.

    I was thinking about building a more versatile weapon , what about a Double bound with Cruiser ( archer combo) + 2x Droseras? Would it work well?

  11. no. your damage without percentage dmg modifiers would be like shit. even if u crit 80 percent of the time or more, ur dmg would be totally crap.

  12. hey
    but str dont increase the damage of blitz but if u give int that increases the damage

  13. horrible, doesnt even include a sharpshoot sniper build (:

  14. How do i mvp lock with that last build? do you have some videos?

  15. this is mad late but i have that last build verry dangerous in woe with mute arrows with a baphomet on the bow slot have them running for the hills if they can move

  16. Hmm, i prefer this build
    this stats with attention true sight and wind walk
    1 str + xx (dont remember xd)
    92 + 36 agi
    27 + 8 vit
    26 + 9 int
    98 + 57 dex
    1 + 8 luck (dont remember right now xd)
    it’s very nice spamming ds,

    using a nepenthes bow with archer set and abysmal knight card, your dps with all race its nice, leveling in thor, killing boss you almost can do anything by yourself without help, my equipment its something like this:

    ulle’s cap with blue acidus
    romantic leaf xdd
    undershirt with anolian
    pantie with dragon tail
    sprint shoes or black leather boots with merman
    nepenthes bow +6 with cruiser and abysmal(yes its lol i broke a lot of bows xd)
    orleans glove with zerom and a normal glove with alligator.

    you reach with that equipment having attention and true sight and wind walk:

    291 hit 265 flee
    184 aspd
    7999 hp and 750 SP

    i like this build and i can kill about 27 different bosses :D inclusive you can “tank” some bosses while you hit them xDDDD



  18. san po makukuha ung anolian card

  19. san po makukuha ung anolian card …

    syempre sa anolian din!.. anolian nga eh tanga!

  20. Curious, but for your favorite build… Isn’t 195 the max aspd? I’m almost positive it is in all of the Ragnarok servers I have played in my life time… O_o

  21. @vid3nt3

    if u are using the undershirt n pantie combos,i suggest u use the dragon vest n dragon manteau combo. more flee rate n agi… :D

  22. try this you losers… try Lord of death card…. instant MAMAW

  23. pambihirang yan,di na applicable archer set card minsan lang umipekto..dami na rin bagong equips sa headgear na nga lang may baphomet horn na dagdag inflick damage..isa palang yun sa dami ng headgear nalumabas ngayun at malamang sa darating na mga buwan at taon…

    how `bout that?any suggestion??im always hunt in nameless

  28. @Lyre

    crit is really usefull against vit lancer / paladins / some prists, but generally it’s a bad build. – but a better emp breaker.


    sharpshooter build and pure falconier are NO GOOD at mid to high rates servers due to the fact that they do really crap damage vs well equiped enemies – so I don’t care.


    Most servers I play have max aspd at 190, but most high and super high have 195 to 199. I’ve already played at low rates that have 195, but that’s uncommon and made LK the best damm emp breaker ever.

    @lololololo sniper

    you crazy ? who drops that!?

    don’t suggest undropable itens…

  29. Nice stat build for an agi blitzer type. But I suggest to lower your dex to 70. Make it 99agi, 70dex, 30int, 50+ luck.. This build hurts. And is perfect for those lazy fingers trying to DS either in Woe, PvP and Mvp. Lol. Just dont try to DS vit types like LK and Palla, oh and Priests too. Haha! Wiz wont be a problem. Just attack them to death with status bows and arrows.
    By the way,in 3rd jobs, which is better?
    A falcon ranger or warg ranger?
    Too bad cant use both of them at a time. Arg so hard to decide. Will I set my beloved falcon free?huhu!

  30. Can ranger choose whether to use falcon or warg? Or can he only use warg?

  31. How to make a elemental bow

  32. pwede po bng mgpaturo? ano po ba ang tamang stat ng pure Straffer? Ok lng ba kung 99 agi at 99 dex??

  33. pwede bng kmuha ng falcon asult ang pure Strafer na agi 99 at dex 99?? hndi ba basag?

  34. monchichay, i have the same build with you and my set is

    Sniping suit[AGI to luk]
    2crit rings
    Neo ballista

    my problem is i don’t know what shoes and robe will I wear? help hehe

  35. whew` nice build!!!
    ill try the the last one
    soOOoo CoooOOOooL!!

  36. GUYS, THIS GUIDE WAS CREATED 2009, SO SHUT IT WITH YOUR DRAGON VEST COMBO (although i agree this is better)

    I hope the creator of this guide is still alive to edit this xD damn this is awesome for a guide created in a mid rate server, 2009. you sure know how to experiment xD the last build was sooo awesome i killed a lot of mvp’s with it >_<

    i’ll be waiting for your next guide, more builds plsss i love you

  37. another thing, a lot of people use your blitzer build! u have a lot of fans but… they use it to bot :c don’t worry the gm team is doing their best in our server

  38. i dont hav coment bcos our server was overpowered and i love to play it. just try selcouthro people. so nice :-)

  39. nc stat build but i think in pvp a blitzer has a very low hp to survive /hmm

  40. if i follow your build, the superfast blitzer build, say i get to lvl99 sniper and want to go 3rd job to a ranger, would it still be a good build? if i become ranger with this build, can i use a warg and get warg skills or just stay with my falcon?

  41. Try my sniper build. best for hunting MVP build.
    Str = 10
    Agi = 75 ++
    Vit = 50 ++
    Int = 10 ++
    Dex = 99++
    Luk = 30++

    equipment set =
    head = Ulles cap + Venberg (?? critical rate increase )
    Armor = Sniping suit + Gloom undernight card
    Garments = Wool cape + any card to increase resistant based on MVP’s
    Footgear = Tidal Shoes + Verit card
    Weapon = Composite Bow (4) + 3 x Abbysmal Knight Card + 1 x Dolpegangger Card

    MVPs cant move by this set. sure!!

    For PVP Set =

    head = Ulles cap + Venberg (?? critical rate increase )
    Armor = Sniping suit + Ghostring card or angeling or defend against poison use argiope card
    Garments = Wool cape + Deviling card
    Footgear = Tidal Shoes + Verit card
    Weapon = Composite Bow (4) + 2x Lord of Death card + 1x dolpegangger card + 1xPheroni card – or – 4x Marina card or 4x Skeleton card or Ifrits card, 1 x thanatos card (for double strafring play) Got more ifrits the better.

    Hahaha. this set smashing. if got thanatos card then people cant play potion with you. If playing physical atk stun effect from skeleton card and freeze efect from marina card are better. Lord of death card sure smashing if got luck to coma your opponent. Lols.

    It might not be perfect but you can try..

  42. pa help nman kung anung magandang stats para sa ranger ko T.T para po sa wuger typ tnx po sa sasagot ^^

  46. UPDATE:

    From my last post with the equipment v/s MVP, replace:

    undershirt and pantie with dragon vest and dragon manteau.
    The bow with DOUBLE BOUND, an excellent level 3 weapon with 3 slots. Dropped by Giant Hornet in ENDLESS TOWER.

    Related to stats, you can reduce some agility to increase your intellect, or whatever, coz you don’t need very much agility, do to the fact than with the other armors and buffs you can get about 270 flee.
    Now im using 2 Orleans Glove. Im playing in a mid rate server (im from Chile and i speak spanish xd). Your best choice for headgear is Giant Baphomet Horns. And try to get Hunter Cap, very useful for beast MVP such atroce, garm, eddga, ktullanux.

    that’s all for now, any incoming update i will publish it right here.

    PD: sorry for my english, im trying to write the best than i can.


  47. which one is better? +10 double bound[3] or +10 composite bow[4]? for prerenewal
