General Info

 

This is a keep defender build but can also be played when joining a group in open fields.

Basically activate Relentless Focus and hit a random target with 5 Light Attacks to get your spectral shot ready.

Then Buff up with Rally and Inner Light, hit the target of your choice with Impale to proc both Sheer Venom and Swamp Raider Bonus. Then, Stealth, Lethal Arrow, Spectral Shot, Toxic Barrage. This will kill most players. If not they will be extremely low so just hit them with another Impale.

You could try run a Master Bow and lose Piercing Mark for Poison Injection for the added Weapon Damage. This might be better if your targets block through your burst due to being warned through the mark.

I am currently using The Thief Mundus but I will change to The Lover when Horns of the Reach arrives, due to the fact The Lover gives both Spell and Weapon Penetration. I am also running Kragh with Sharpened Bow, but I will try a Precise Bow with Kena along with Lover in the next update to see if I get better results. Kena will also boost the Impale damage so it might be worth a look at.

Pros:

Powerful keep wall defence

Good for group play

High Burst Combo

Can be used in non cp campaigns very effectively (It is not a build that heavily relies on cp such as DK Heavy Attack build.)

New Build

Effective against players who even stack Impen.

Cons:

Weak Dueling Build,

Not suitable for ganking (unless you catch a solo player looking through his bag lol).

Poor survivability unless you have Immovable pots.

 

Champion Point Tips

 

Depends on how many points you have but you want to focus on Mighty, Piercing and some into Thaumaturge.

From there you can put points into Warlord and Mooncalf and the usual defence slots in The Warrior.
