Archer

The Crossbow is a very useful ability for zoning players in PvP, so we think it to be a must! You can really restrict your opponent's movements with it, especially if you use Wind Sweep in conjunction. In group battles, it's also possible to include Electric Arrow in this set as well.

Archer - Recommended Soul Linkers

Recommended Soul Linkers

Reduce Skill Cooldown Time

The Archer has access to several very powerful buff and placement skills, but some of them have a relatively long cooldown. Bringing along Soul Linkers that reduce your Cooldown time is a good idea to increase your uptime on these powerful buffs.

Archer - Recommended Passives

Recommended Passives To Level Up

PriorityPassive
★★★★★Physical Attack Increase
★★★★★Physical Crit. Damage Increase
★★★・・Physical EVA Increase
★★・・・HP Increase
★★・・・Physical DEF Increase

Prioritize Upping Your DPS

The Archer is it at its core a DPS class, so you'll want to focus on Physical Attack and Crit Damage increases first! Since Crit Damage is unlocked at level 100, you'll want to pour all your resources into Physical Attack first!
