Hi guys,

I'm still confused with the awakened siege stance if

1.) I should play mid-range while using right-click siege-awk CS-right click siege-awk arrow shower (repeat) then 2x windshot when full bubbles; or

2.) Play mid/long range with continuous left click of siege stance for bubbles and use occasional awk CS and awk arrow shower, then use 2x windshot.

I saw some -8-man dragon raid videos with snipers using gameplay (2), and some nests videos using gameplay (1). Is there a difference  when it comes to overall dps in nests and raids?

Thanks!

Im not the most reliable at this since i played sniper like for 4months anyway but if i look at it this way, i play number 2 during raids since theres a thing called playing safe. Especially in raids when snipers are almost susceptible to attacks or mechs. During 8man raid me as a sniper, my main role is to dish out that charged shot. Get em bubbles at a safe distance. Let my team do there role as mid or short range. Sure my dps wont be that high as opposed to doing number 1. But im a "Sniper". But as time goes by, i memorize every mech i slowly go mid range.

I do number 1 during 4man nest since damage from boss aint that much so yeah.

It all boils down to your familiarity of the mechs. If you are confident to do number 1 in raids much better so u can fully utilize her dps and CMIIW, forgot already since im playing arti and temp now, right click siege gives more bubbles depends on how much arrows hit. Goodluck!

By the way, u can do 3x windshot within "comouflage" skill. The skill wer u become invisible. Forgot the skill name well. Coz it makes windshot action speed faster.

I'd say combination of both. #1 as much as possible, then #2 for playing safe (like to just complete your remaining few needed bubbles).


and no, right click siege doesn't affect number of bubbles, it still count as 1. What it affects are the CD reduced from AS and CS.

Play pure #2 in raid because windshaft is top dps skill and main priority, dont bother resetting shower cd

AS plate is needed if you want to pull off 3x windshaft

However in nest and dungeons boss and mobs die fast so you might not be able to fire off many windshafts, #1 is easier to squeeze in dmg

It would really depend on your playstyle, Imo, you can use any playstyle as long as it gives you the least minimum time to gather wind arrows which supplies you main dps skill Wind Shot.

Ive tried #2.. it would take ~14sec of nonstop left clicking to earn 20 arrows (no movement spd enhancements).

I also use #1.. when I need quick dmg, especially when mech is about to happen. r.click cs, r.click as


I use #2 if i need sure and steady gathering of arrows.

My Own playstyle would be r.click > as > tumble > as instant > gap closer (either walk or Sliding Shot) > siege stance r. click 3x (would recover as cd).. Repeat. Gains 20 arrows in about 8-10secs depending if target moved.

Im too late but I hope Ive helped you (:>)
