Sorry for my bad English!

1. Does Arrow Barrage share cooldown with Revolution Ballista?

2. Can Cheating Point attract nest bosses?

3. Is it worth taking Wise of the Owl?

4. Does Siege Stance reduce cooldown of Arrow Shower INS? If yes, is it worth maxing Fake Shot and spam Arrow Shower INS every 5 seconds?

5. Sniper doing better in long-range or mid-range? I like Bowmasters because they can play in long-range, but I decided choosing Sniper because I don't like Arti's 12345 playstyle (kinda boring, even after awakening).

6. Is Wind Shaft bugged? I saw some video on Youtube (after awakening), sometimes Wind Shaft doesn't hit.

7. Can SS Aerial Chain Shot cancle any skills' animation?

8. I'm planning using this skill build for both PVE and PVP. Is it OK or give me your opinion, thank you.

1. Yes
2. Some, yes, if they do not have random aggro
3. If you have extra SP, why not?
4. -Shrugs- I rarely use Arrow Shower INS because I'm a bad sniper and always forgot that it's a thing. Also I can't aim it properly.
5. Sniper's best at mid-point blank range. You'll find that snipers are worse than Artillery's 12345. It's siege stance, a few left/right clicks, arrow shower/charged shot, repeat. Wind Shaft when you have the chance.
6. Sometimes yes, it sort of just... Disappears after being shot. Probably collided with an invisible wall or something. Try aiming it higher.
7. -Shrugs-
8. Not an expert but it seems okay ._.

1. Yes
2. Works on some bosses
3. Yes
4. Yes, but u probably wont use fake shot for AS instant. Instead, you will use right click siege to cd your siege shower. Its faster.
5. Melee range gets you the most dps, except when you're firing windshot. See point 4.
6. Depends on Hitbox of target, where you aim, and your internet connection.
7. Im not sure, i'll let someone else answer this.
8. Drop the revolution balista. And for pvp, try to get a high lvl tracking arrow. it helps. Your archer tree only needs 45 sp.

Edit: zzz Dam you Reizo,you beat me to it >.<

Regarding the build. Well... I guess that's okay-ish for PVE but ull have a hard time in PVP with that.

I suggest u drop piercing shot because that skill aint worth it in both areas anyway.

You need maxed Ankle Shot and high level TA. This is my Skill Build.


Idk about ur question 7. Since SS ACS can only be casted during SS mode and there are only 4 other skills you can cast, 3 of which will remove ur SS mode anyway.

Well if you don't like Arti's 12345 play style, Sniper is much worse. It's basically just Siege Stance spamming.

Also, max Ankle Shot if you plan to make it a hybrid build because it's one of your best skills.
