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

Why did I play artillery?
1) Shes my little Princess
2) Her skills are beautiful
3) Her Ex and 55ex looks awesome
4) She  is a bit  more mobile and have more opportunity to attack than snipers
5) She is what I call a "Mid ranged Sniper". If you don't like being in the back pecking at monsters with dull arrows, but still want to play Bowmaster, Artillery is the class for you! Artillery is a very mobile class with many colorful magic arrows! she can effectively fight at ALL ranges!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Archer

Ok Heres the build. Many skills in this build have been tinkered with to fit my personal style. I will point those out below.

Twin shot: Shoots a pair of arrows.
Level: Maxed.

Magic Arrow: Shoot a magic arrow that explodes on impact.
Level: 1
I think its just an all around useful skill lol. I use it allot. This skill is OPTIONAL

Wisdom of the owl:Increase the crit chance by a certain percentage within certain time.
Level: 4
I got it because we need as much crit as we can get. took some SP out for balancing reasons. don't need it at max.

WHY DID I NOT GET THESE SKILLS?
Multi shot: A p-atk skill. and not very powerful

Bowmaster

Extension Arrow: Fires a powerful magical arrow that splits in to 6 piercing arrows upon contact

One of your main damage skills. maxed dmg boost.

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

Areal ChainShot: Fires multiple arrows from the air.

EXTREMELY powerful skill, leveled it to 11 for dmg boost.

Rapid shot: Generates magical arrows that fire rapidly.

Great damage and 55ex skill. I leveled it to 11 for dmg boost.

Guided Shot: Fires multiple arrows that track an enemy

Level up it to 10. but took 1 point out for balancing purposes. The 1 SP loss really isn't a big deal for me.

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

Got it for my personal build. powerful skill and I use it allot. Good for pvp too. recommend getting it. This skill is OPTIONAL

Crossbow Mastery
Level: MAXED
Well...not much to say here.

WHY DID I NOT GET THESE SKILLS?
Rain of Arrows: P-ATK  SNIPER skill - very slow- bad damage for artillery until at LEAST SP level6 - didn't have enough SP

Ankle Shot: P-ATK PvP skill - SNIPER skill - its not needed in PvE, save the SP - When it comes to DPS, its not that powerful. Especially for Artillery because we stack INT and M-atk.

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

Arrow Barrage: P-ATK skill- SNIPER ULTIMATE - not needed for PvE artillery - didnt have the SP
