FULL STR BOW BUILD
Lots of people talk about 70:70 bow build, or pure int bow build....but pure str is the way to go if you're going to be a bower. So here is my own guide and hope you like it.
First of all, all stat points go to str.
Advantages: More hp=more physical defense, higher criticals, better in pvp
Disadvantages: Less MP (who cares..we have pots), Less damage with Magical attks (not a problem)
First Build: 100 pacheon/100fire/100cold. [SP=1,321,709]
The reason: Pacheon is needed for bow skills (must get to 100 no matter what), fire is necessary because it is the physical damage buff skill tree, strongest imbue, and magic def buff. If you don't really care for the speed buff and the magic buff doesn't matter much...get 100 cold. Advantage is the huge physical defense buffs that give you very high tanking ability but at the loss of speed (no worry, you can always buy drug of typhoons).
Alternative Build: 100 pacheon/100 fire/60light/40cold [SP=1,046,275]
The reason: Same pacheon and fire reason as above. Light is needed for a little magic buff(15%) and also speed, and finally cold for snow shield (a little additional phy defense).
Sadly, you will need to farm like crazy in the beginning for this build....but its worth it in the end because the bow is one of the strongest in PvP and best for unique hunting.
So lets look at the first build skills now:100 pacheon/100 fire/100cold [this is my favorite]
Red=Must get and max
The skills [glow=red,2,300]ADVANTAGES :P[/glow]:
FIRE: Magic Def +277, Physical Attk %19 increase
COLD: Physical Def +336, Snow Shield 60% physical def absorption
For SP Farming I suggest 9 gap from 18-28 at ongs. Keep dlvling (very annoying but have to do) and do this 20 times. Then you will have enough sp as you 0 gap from 28-100.
If this helped you Please leave a thanks, or if you have any suggestions or questions about the two builds I showed feel free to reply.
