Hello Everyone! I've been thinking about playing Archer and I was just wondering if anyone knows/has a good build for them. I'm looking for an all-around build, good for mobbing and good for bossing, but anything works! Thank you

    Most people are following the same build from CBT1 6xEbXHB.png

    Keep in mind that as you progress throughout the game like doing map completions etc.. will give you some more skill points.

    Screwdriver Shot is terrible at the current level cap of 50. Low level skill is bad. And if you want to kill dungeon or raid bosses, 10/10 Agile Archer is the best passive. It's not worth much before endgame, but at 50 it's by far stronger than the other passives.

    When I was checking my dpm I found that bronze eagle? (at lvl50) is significantly better than conditioning. I.e. leave conditioning at +6 and get bronze eagle to +10. Also I would leave screwdriver shot at +1 for the lvl50 cap

    ^ for all of your future reference

    P.S. with the lvl50 cap sharp eyes can only reach +9

    You're doing something wrong if that shows up as a higher number. Conditioning just has a bigger damage multiplier, except for rank 1 of bronze eagle. getting +0.3% dex is worth less than 0.3% of your base damage while conditioning's +0.6% physical attack is worth exactly 0.6% of your base damage. Physical attack is calculated by (DEX * 0.xx + other sources of physical attack) bronze eagle only boosts a portion of your physical attack while conditioning increases ALL of it. and by twice as much. As a bonus, bronze eagle doesn't even have 100% uptime while conditioning does. It's impossible for bronze eagle to be better than conditioning, (except for rank 1 of course!) unless you consider using it as a pre-requisite for other skills.

    I could be wrong (literally just my opinion) but when I switched my DPM increased significantly (from 2 mil damage per min -> 2.4 mil damage per min). I have no interest in figuring out the math behind it, I just did my own tests in game against the single-target dummies and saw a big difference.

    It also might be important to note that we are looking at combinations of the two skills and not completely a choice between one and the other.
