Best Rapid Arrow Bows

ElementWeapon / Rampage Skills
NoneHerald's Battlebow
Attack Boost II
火Flaming Rage Bow
Fire Boost III
水雷
氷龍
Rampage Bow (Water, Thunder, Ice, Dragon)

When it comes to Rapid builds, the Herald's Battlebow is amazing. For all other elements, you can feel free to use the Rampage Bow instead.

Best Piercing Arrow Bows

ElementWeapon
NoneNight Flight
Attack Boost III

Night Flight simply has high attack, affinity, and charge level, so we find it very useful for a Piercing build. We also don't recommend using an elemental affinity on your weapon for this build!

Best Spread Arrow Bows

ElementWeapon
NoneGenie's Grimoire I
Attack Boost II
火水雷
氷龍
Rampage Bow (Any Element)

If you're going for a build with no element, the new Chameleos weapon Genie's Grimoire is your best bet! Otherwise, just use the Rampage Bow for elemental builds.

Bow Recommended Skills

SkillEffect / Reason
Bow Charge Plus
(Priority: ★★★)
【Effect】
Increases max bow charge level by one.
【Reason】
This skill will let you unlock the 4th bow charge level. The overall DPS gain is signficant, so you should try to have this on most builds.
Constitution
(Priority: ★★★)
【Effect】
Reduces stamina depletion for certain moves.
【Reason】
The bow uses a lot of stamina with charge steps and other moves, so it's important to have a way to offset that. This should be a high priority.
All Elemental Attack Boosts
(Priority: ★★★)
【Effect】
Improve the particular elemental damage of your weapon
【Reason】
Bows are a perfect fit for elemental weapons, due to how many actions they carry out. If you want to specialize in elemental damage even more, make sure to get Critical Element as well.
Stamina Surge
(Priority: ☆★★)
【Effect】
Increases your stamina regeneration rate
【Reason】
This is a skill that works well alongside Constitution. That being said, its priority is lower than Constitution, so make sure to get that first.
Normal - Rapid Up
(Priority: ☆★★)
【Effect】
Increases the power of normal arrow for Bowguns and and Rapid arrows for Bows
【Reason】
Increases the overall damage of your arrows. Depending on the weapon, you could opt for spread or pierce and use a skill buffing that instead.

Id focus on Shottype up over Stamina Surge and probably on one level with the element skill of your choice. though, since you get elemtan attack mostly through decos and shot up through armor it usually works out

swarley 4

i dont get it. how can you get +3 normal/rapid with all build ? i only get 2 .

Anonymous 3

What's the best alternative for helmet if you're bad at the Arena?

Could someone explain to me why the build picks windproof over other skills?
