The lvl 50 cap is coming out and i decided to share my sniper skill build in advance..
(NOTE: Re-edited to fit some changes)

Posted Image

Archer Tree
1) I did not max twin shot
Reason? lvl16 to 17 dmg scaling is not significant
2) Most skills are put at lvl 1 for the sake of utility
Magic Arrow dropped due to inefficient SP
3) No moonkick because i hardly use it even in pvp n insufficient SP

Bowmaster Tree
1) Maxed Charged Shot as a sniper for dmg reasons
2) Maxed Aerial Chain Shot as this is ur new Arrow Shower
3) Siege Stance and Arrow Shower drop due to limitations on where and when to use and insufficient SP
4) Max Scope Arrow as it deals good dmg with low CD
5) Swift Shot at lvl 6, Rapid Shot and Tracking Arrow at lvl 1 due to SP restriction
6) Revolution Ballista at lvl 1 to unlock Arrow Barrage and further unlock sniper skill tree when AB is learnt
7) Maxed Bull's Eye to increase party's DPS
8) Maxed Spiritual Excel for higher Crit, DPS, Mp pool
9) Maxed Ankle Shot for longer bind duration and it can be very painful if all 3 hits connect

Sniper Tree
Max  all skills.. Do i have to tell u why? xD

Major Skill Build Changes from the previous build
1) Max Wise of Owl to help party members to hit crit cap every 120secs for 28secs
(your party members will be grateful and you will have higher chances to entry raid parties)
2) Dropped Siege Stance and Arrow Shower and reallocated SP to Scope Arrow
3) Tracking Arrow SP reallocated to Swift Shot
4) Dropped Magic Arrow
5) Dual Ultimate unlike the previous build which only learned Arrow Barrage

Some points to take note of
1) Skills have significant dmg scaling at lvl5 to 6, lvl10 to 11and lvl15 to 16
That is why some skill i dont add further because it can be add to other skills to maximize overall dps rather than burst DPS. (Charge Shot is an exception because 1 SP remained after the essentials were added)
2) Skill Simulator link for Sniper > http://dn.duowan.com/s/t4/sniper.html

(NOTE: This is just my skill build and everyone has their own preferences)

I hope you this guide can be useful to some of u out there
Please dont flame and rage me xD However, constructive criticism is encourage.
And please for give me if my english and is bad xP

(NOTE: This skill build only applies if T4 skill dmg is implemented not only the skill tree revamps)
There are a few thing i would like to share.
One of them is this build focus more on overall dps than burst dps..
1st take a look at the skill build below

Posted Image

Archer Tree
1) I did not max twin shot
Reason? its is because i believe the skill point can be put else where to maximize overall dps..
2) all skills are put at lvl 1 for the sake of utility..
Reason? u have btr dmging skills and u cant spam all ur skills in high lvl nest without getting owned..
3) No moonkick because i hardly use it even in pvp

Bowmaster Tree
1) Maxed Charged Shot because its ur main dmg skill as a sniper
2) Maxed Aerial Chain Shot because its ur nxt dmg skill
3) Siege Stance at lvl 6 because of the significant dmg scaling from lvl5 to lvl6
4) Arrow Shower at lvl 1 because the damage sucks and the 30hit limitation is implemented u wont even considering using it
5) Arrow Barrage to unlock sniper skill tree
6) All magic skill tree is left at lvl1 except for tracking arrows
7) Tracking Arrows at lvl 6 for the dmg scaling from lvl5-6 and TA has low cooldown n easy to cast during a boss fight
8) Maxed Bull's Eye to increase party's DPS
9) Maxed Slyph's Aid for range advantage
10) Maxed Spiritual Excel for higher Crit, DPS, Mp pool
11) Maxed Ankle Shot because it can be very painful if all 3 hits connect

Sniper Tree
Max  all skills.. Do i have to tell u why? xD


Some point to take note of
1) Skills have significant scaling at lvl5 to 6, lvl10 to 11and lvl15-16
That is why some skill i dont add further because it can be add to other skills to maximize overall dps rather than burst DPS.
2) This skill calculator is T4 and im not sure whether DNSEA will follow this format. This skill build is based on this specific Skill Calculator http://dn.duowan.com/t4/

(NOTE: This is just my skill build and everyone has different preference)

I hope you this guide can be useful to some of u out there

-using siege stance in a nest is wasting time and the damage isnt high too
-arrow shower dont have hit limitation, but the damage are still suck
-scope arrow should be maxed or at least lv11, its damage is higher than charged shot EX on the same level and even your patk is 2 times of your matk

other than that dont have much problem, and forgive me for my bad english (shame)

okay.. thx.. i find it quite true that there are a lot of limitation on where and when to use siege stance.. i will reroute my shower and siege to scope arrow.. i will leave siege stance at lvl 1 though.. i like to see ppl flying when i successfully connect my siege stance in pvp..

yes.. because i like to do some pvp on the side while i pve.. thats why i have my stunning shot.. willow kick is a given skill in T4.. i tend to distance myself than moonkick-ing my opponent.. tried moonkick-ing my opponent but failed miserably many times xD

I'm going for the exact same build except I'd go for a lvl 6 tracking instead of swiftshot since I'm more of a pvp player.

Is it really worth maxing CS? wouldn't it be wise to use those 7 sp (from CS) to max swift shot or TA?

I'm just asking here (:])
