Sharpshooter Leveling Build Guide


Introduction

The Sharpshooter class has skills with low Cooldown and quick animations. Clearing speed might be slightly slower compared to other classes. His high mobility helps in avoiding hits and dealing consistent damage to enemies during the leveling phase.

During the leveling process, focus on equipping the highest Item Level gear while prioritizing the Crit and Swiftness Combat Stats to increase your damage and clear speed. To level quickly, focus on doing Main Story Quest with some exceptions.

For a walk-through of the leveling quests, check out the Leveling Guide.


Skill Point Allocation

Allocate Skill Points to gain Skill Tree for your most powerful Skills. Below are the notable Character Levels to obtain the most important Skill Tree. Left over points can be spent on secondary Skills of your choice. Make sure you reallocate those points into the main Skills when needed.

Check the Skill Point Guide for more details.

Level 12: Moving Slash (4 points) for mobility. Blade Storm (4 points) for damage and some Identity Gauge gain.

Level 20-21: Charged Shot (48 points) for damage and some AoE clearing.

Level 30: Claymore Mine (48 points each) for damage and AoE clearing. (Arrow Wave is an alternative option for higher burst damage but lesser AoE)

Level 38: Sharp Shooter (48 points) for single target burst with some AoE.

Level 45: Arrow Wave (48 points) for high burst damage with some AoE.

Level 48: Blade Storm (20 points) for increased AoE.

Level 50

Follow the main story quest to Vern Castle until Beatrice notifies you to visit her in Trixion. Completing her questline unlocks Snipe and Fenrir's Messenger Awakening Skill. Check your inventory and consume the items to unlock the skills. Set up 2 skill presets for the Chaos Dungeon/Cube and Raid builds, listed below in the Endgame section.

Extra Notes

Extra Skill Points during leveling can be invested into Blade Storm for some AoE clearing. Make sure you reallocate those points into the main Skills when needed.


Gameplay

  • During early levels, group mobs up tight to burst with Blade Storm, Claymore Mine and Charged Shot.
  • At the later stages when Sharp Shooter and Arrow Wave have been upgraded, drag mobs while moving towards the objective and burst them when they line up.

Endgame

Once you reach Level 50, the following guides will guide you through the end game content and activities:


Summary

  • Use your mobility skills to travel around quickly in areas where mounts are disabled.
  • Moving Slash and Stalker can be use as a gap closer after dodging an attack from Elites or Bosses.
  • Charged Shot, Sharp Shooter and Arrow Wave are versatile high burst damage skills for mob packs, Elites and Bosses. Pull enemies in a line to hit them with the narrow AoE.
