Konnichiwa senpais! >///<
I'm Cath and I play the strings class, lol jk xD I mean Warbow.
btw I'm also a cute grill in Chimera, or am i ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ~
;3; I don't see a lot of pweple who play bows, so I wanted to share my build nyan! >//w//<
I'm lvl 95 and started ak aboout uhm... a year ago I think, so pwease dun bully mi ;;3;;
The animation for light bow is super suggoooi xP so I use that build.
de wings animation is suppppah pweatty and the class is tanoshii naaa~
but you kno', if you feelin emo or smthing you can do the dark build.
I have a videos UwU but only for boss kills and swuff, check this one out if you want
>///> not like I want you to or anything....
Warbow is... well its not op like shurikens and lancers
But is definitely pretty and fun to play! yay~!
It also have high movespeed and a lot of Zeal, proc proc pops pops \/
pweople usually do dark build which is ok, buut...Holy is so pretty and shiny so i decide to do holy build!
This guide is kinda for peeps who can get full +20 set and habs a wee-bit of knowledge in-game. Kinda like mi hufufu~
You can also apply some stuff in this guide for dark build since gear is mainly similar, but the gameplay is alot different!
Pros & Cons:
Lots of Nooks Damagies!
Zoom zoom! (move speed)
Animation is pure sakuya
solo dps is derp compared to in-party dps
Starting an MMO is always borinnnn, but you! yes! YOU hang in there!
Basically you need to do ALLLLLLLL main quest until you reach lv.80
then you can start to gear up and do dungies! But until then be patient and search fwends and maybe grills
>///> there's prob alr a guide for how to start in AK s-so imma just gonna talk about bows stuffies
To navigate tru the guide just search your desired things to know and scroll to that part, i made them shiny for you! and press the spoiler buttons to show contents!
okie imaa need to be a lil' serious here :< it's a bit complicated
bow is a unique class, unlike other class, bow can do chargies for their skills!
all bow skills has unique extra effects when they are fully charged (except for Blessing of the Wind)
half charging a skill will give it extra 50% dmg while fully charging a skill will give extra 120% dmg and some additional effect
First of all let us all see what skill our lovely bow have!
This is the first skill that bow get! Sadly nowadays it doesn't really worth mentioning and explaining it
since we mostly spam our main element skill and it has become kinda useless to full charge this, that is why i will not go deep into explaining how the charge skill work but rather on the how this skill can still be useful! >w<
There's a mastery which makes this skill gives you up to 11% extra damage!
and it is kinda useful if you using this build, more on that later! but for now just take that you must never full charge this skill on a boss!
You can however, charge this skill on mobs! to get bonus stats and stuff from your envoys (or passive) again more on that later!
This skill element is ice! This skill is also not that fancy but it has it uses!
While it is way more useful in PvP than in PvE, the freeze can be useful for some bosses and when kiting mobs!
For example you can freeze Winston in Chronowood Cavern to stop him from casting his skills, compared to stunning him where his reflect skill still goes thru stuns
To activate the freeze effect you need to full charge this skill!
Sadly for this build, this frost arrow remain single target D: so it is not really useful vs bunch of mobs
This skill element is dark! and it can become suppppperr scary with right weapon specialization!
A full charge also gives this skill 30% more chance to deal critical dmg making it a solid option for a build
Although this build isn't focused on dark, this skill is still useful to charge when killing mobs! (when arrow of light is on cooldown)
Blessing of the Winds
Ooooh i love this skill!
This skill cannot be charged, but!
When casted it gives you some extra damage stats, 10% movespeed yum yum AND 30% chance to deal 50% extra damage! Pretty simple but verrrry strong!
(on top of it it gives you a cute lil' fairy >A<)
Hail of Arrows
oh wait... sorry, i mean >///<
This skill is the mainly used to clear up mobs, when fully charged this skill will hit a hugeeee area with a lot of pretty pretty looking arrows
it does will not deal as much damage as our main element skill, but with this build this skill gives a debuff of -15% defense! which is good! you have to love def shred!
Okay this is our main buddy right here!
This skill does not deal a whole lot of damage but the effect is suppppper lovely
first of all it has -def debuff that stacks up to 3 times and while fully charged it reduce target heal by 40% (which is realllly good in PvP)
And with left weapon specialization, which we will be using in this build, this skill gets 30% more damage as well as a +5% damage taken debuff that stacks up to 3 times and when fully charged gives another debuff which gives anyone who hit the debuffed target 10% boost to all stats!
This skill is just definition of love
Arrow of Light
PRETTY PRETTY PRETTYYYYYYYYYYY
oh sorry again >///<
This is the skill we will be focusing on for this build!
although the effect isn't that fancy, it has the highest damage multiplier thus dealing the most damage in one shot!
With this skill you should be able to deal alottttt of damage when geared properly
on top of that the animation is pretty and it gives you wings too >///< this skill is just too perfect
Warbow class specific envoy nodes are super important!
with exception for +3m range to skill, everything will make your bow more flashy!
This is the default node which you will be getting at level 3!
it gives you move speed +10% zoom zoom!
bow skill +3 (every class has +3 to their main skill)
and 20% critical rate and accuracy when fully charging a skill!
which is neat since that means you only need 80% crit rate to crit all your charged skill
This envoy nodes will give you AND your party member 8% chance to deal 50% extra damage whenever you hit something, both auto attakcs & skill its more proc proc pops pops!
Overdraw gives you a buff of +3% Damage and Accuracy, which stack up to 5 times everytime you successfully charge a skill, doesn't matter if the skill actually goes off or not! this means you can get +15% Damage and Accuracy after 5 successful charges!
Best skill cooldown -25%? 3 second cooldown to grow wings?! SIGN ME UP >///<
Gives ANY dark and holy element skill extra 20% crit damage, this means your sub skill and combo skill also counts! Although it doesn't really have much use for subs D:
BUT it also gives chance to make your Arrow of Light/Dimensional Shot 30% Extra Skill Damage, which is a lot!
You can tell when this envoy buff is up easily since it will be purple colored, its pretty and eyecatching!
AND BEST ENVOY NODES AWARD GOES TOOOOO....
It gives you 50% chance to give you a buff of Main Weapon Damage 8% and Crit Damage Cap +10%, and it stacks up to 5 times!
Which means you will get total of 40% Main Weapon Damage (In case you can't tell ITS HUGEEEEEEEEEEE ) and 50% crit damage increase, which put bow maximum crit damage dealt to 350%!
It is kinda annoying to stack tho D: 50% chance to proc on full charge is actually tiring when you pay attention to it, but it's OP!
