New to Archer and want to do a Pure AD Build
« on: Dec 22, 2011, 03:31 am »
Hello there, I'm currently playing on Valkyrie (iRO). I haven't played for years (and I mean years), and no longer know what the best approach is.

Do anybody have a rough stat build for a pure AD? Is it the best type of build for MVPing with an archer? I have a preference for fast speed and criticals, but the criticals aren't a necessity.

As well, what kind of equipment should I strive to get (the best possible is great), as well as the cards and whatnot, and the approximate market prices (so I don't get ripped off).

Thank you all very, very much!

A few basic stuff like
Apple of archer, Ghost Bandana, Binoculars will do.
If you are rich, try getting Ulle's Cap.
Pantie-Undershirt combo will do for starters, get slotted ones(or dragon vest+dragon manteau if available) once you got enough money.

Then card your stuff with Hunter set(Anolian, Alligator, Cruiser, Merman, Dragon Tail).
I suggest getting dragon tail first.

As for market prices, I can't help there.

What is AD on a archer/hunter/ranger class o.O? Or are you talking about Acid Demonstration?

And best ranger build is 193 aspd, high DEX, other points on LUK to boost a bit more the atk and go go go a thanatos elven bow with elven arrows[thanatos now ignore def and give 2 status atk by each def the enemie has, something like this, lazy to do a double check at the moment but it's around tons of topics in irowiki if you want to heck] :D If you don't have a thanatos[iknowright, it's highly improbable to happen but we never know luck specially at iRO lol] then stick with the hunter set like Gene said and a elven bow with elven arrows.

Don't forget that at renewal crits don't ignore def and instead give 150% dmg like most of the korean mmorpgs nowadays.

I believe AD is agi dex.
Stupid me forgetting Valkyrie is on renewal :v.

Yes, Pure AD stands for Pure AGI/DEX. I'm not too concerned about criticals at this time and place. And yes, Valkyrie is a Renewal server.

Just a question: Is it possible to hit 193 ASPD with an archer (with ONLY stats and equipment)? I'm only level 37/34 or, and with the double EXP event, I can easily get this level again, if I built my character wrong from the start. It has 25 INT at the time being, and everything else in AGI and DEX. Some people said that I could just stay with it and get a stat reset once I transcend, so there's no need to do everything all over again.

I can also say that Zeny isn't a concern for me, so feel free to hit me with the most expensive gear you can think of. But of course, temporary gear is great to know about as well, since I probably won't be high enough of a level to use them anyway (would take a while to hit Transcendental, for example).

Also, do you know any rough locations for where to train? Both party and non-party, but I want to prioritize non-party for now. Level ranges and the appropriate monsters and areas (Renewal).

I'm also wondering: Do cards stack? Or certain ones do, and certain others don't? It's been a long while. Can you stack different elements onto the same weapon/armour for multiple effects? What kinds of cards should I strive to get?

@Triper: What is the stat and equip guide for the best ranger build? Or it's a secret or something, lol.

You get a free reset for trans it, don't forget it.

193 aspd isn't possible without some crazy gears or genetic food AFAIK.

Check the map in game for the maps around your lv, dunno the key, it depends on OS/keyboard language too. I think at mine is alt+º and in some others alt+ç, really dunno :S

Playing there you have acess to the zodiac headgears, may want to check them. I think the scorpio diadem is the best? Something like that, I think it has a chance to proc +20 dex on atk or something around that and gives agi and has 1 slot.

Same scripts stack, different multiple.
2 hydras = 1+0.2+0.2 = 1.4 = 140% final dmg
1 hydra, 1 skeleton worker = [1+0.2]*[1+0.15] = 1.38 = 138% final dmg

There is no perfect build with renewal, that's the thing. The only thing that is awesome in a ranger is that a high refine elven bow+elven arrows+thanatos card = best weapon for a 193 ranger.

Also, you may want to try to play with http://calc.irowiki.org/ to get the best of your char.

Thanks for the calculator. I assumed the absolute furthest (150/50, Ranger Transcendental), and proceeded to find the absolute max for my ASPD. I'm assuming that it rounds down, cutting off the decimals.

ASPD maxes out at 183 with 120 AGI and 105 DEX. Throwing the rest into LUK, you can get 108 LUK for 37 CRIT. And then the rest goes for 11 INT exactly. Or am I approaching this wrong?

What kind of cards/equipment should I get to further increase ASPD?
