Gear and Item Set Info
Currently I'm thinking of going for the 5 piece set bonus of Briarheart + Agility Jewelry. The Toxic Defiance Set is also a good set, as you're using Blazing Spear (Magic Damage) which will increase the damage dealt by your Lethal Arrow and Poison Injection. (If you're doing this, you can also swap Scorched Earth for Acid Spray.) 5 pieces should be Medium armor, 1 Heavy and 1 Light to benefit from the Undaunted passive.
Note: This build isn't meant for doing minmax top DPS. It's just a personal Casual Roleplay build I enjoyed playing. I've always wanted to play as a Holy Archer type class. In my case, the character is more of a Neutral Good allignment, so being a Vampire is a no no for RP reasons. In fact, this build *might* make for a pretty decent Vampire Hunter. Werewolf *could* be an option if you really want to go for it, to make for a more Chaotic Good character. The skills listed above are mainly aimed for PvE, although you could make following adjustments: - Scorched Earth -> Acid Spray (ranged cone AoE) - Echoing Vigor -> Executioner (additional execute to Poison Injection) - Echoing Vigor -> Power of the Light (extra burst dmg) For PvP one should make following changes: - Scorched Earth -> Razor Caltrops (AoE with a huge radius + snare) - Blazing Spear -> Binding Javelin (CC) - Echoing Vigor -> Unstoppable/Blazing Shield (survivability) - Repentance -> Purifying Ritual (Cleanse) PvE Rotation: 1. Start off with buffing yourself with Rally and Evil Hunter. (keep them up at all times!) 2. Throw a Blazing Spear and a Scorched Earth at the target(s). 3. Decide to stay at range (4) or get into close combat (5). 4. Use Lethal Arrow + light attack + Poison Injection. After that weave light attacks into Lethal Arrows. (Useful if you want to stay at range) 5. Critical Rush in and start spamming Biting Jabs. (useful when you want to take down single or multiple enemies in melee distance) 6. When needed heal yourself and allies by using Rally + Echoing Vigor. 7. When the enemy is low health, be sure to use Poison Injection and Executioner. (if you have it) PvP Strategies: 1. Keep Rally, Unstoppable (or Blazing Shield) and Evil Hunter up at all times! 2. From Stealth, use Lethal Arrow + Poison Injection. 3. Throw a Binding Javelin and immediately crit rush in. 4. Start spamming Biting Jabs. 5. Heal yourself with Rally and use Purifying Ritual to cleanse debuffs. 6. Use Razor Caltrops to detect stealthed enemies.
Champion Point Tips
- Warrior: doesn't matter that much - Thief: Put points into skills that reduce Stamina cost/increase stamina regen - Mage: You should probably put most points Thaumaturge. (Also get Perfect Strike asap!) Mighty, Piercing and Precise Strikes are useful as well. Finally, you could also put points into Elemental Expert and Bow Expert. If you really have all previous ones maxed out, pick up Blessed and Elfborn.
