Recommended Engravings

Slot 1Slot 2
Firepower Enhancement (Level 3)Keen Blunt Weapon (Level 3)

The Firepower Enhancement Class Engraving is highly preferred over the Barrage Enhancement Class Engraving since the latter does not even compare to the bonuses that the first one gives. Keen Blunt Weapon is also a good engraving to have since it further enhances your critical damage which is the focus of these builds.

Stat Tuning

Swiftness750
Domination249
Crit1

Stat tuning in PvP is mostly fixed on all the advanced classes. The reasoning for this setup is that Swiftness increases your Atk. Speed, Move Speed, and reduces Cooldowns while Domination increases your damage against enemies who are affected with debuffs crowd control effect. The 1 point in Crit is used to enable critical hits in PvP.

Only Level Skills When You Can Reach The Next Tripod

Tripods are essential when it comes to the overall power of a skill. Obtaining Tripods should be your focus when leveling up the skills of your chosen class.

Artillerist Strengths & Weaknesses

Artillerist Strengths

High DPS

Most of the Artillerist's skills have a lot of damage output and the tripods further enhances them.

Great Zone Control

Another thing to note about the Artillerist is that it has a lot of AoE attacks. This can be used to zone enemies and give you some space to move or set up your next skill.

Artillerist Weaknesses

Low Mobility

The Artillerist has very little mobility so it is easy for enemies to get near you. Be aware of your position at all times so you don't get punished when you are at a wrong spot.

Struggles Against Fast Enemies

Since the Artillerist is slow, it is hard to get away from fast enemies when they are able to reach you. This is a huge problem in PVP especially if the one targetting your can easily combo you with knockdowns.
