Hello,

I've decided to start working on my archery sets and get my Yoichi up to 119 III, I have an older JR set similar to the one posted on page 79 of the ranger guide with crit rate and crit damage Taeon. What's an ideal set today and what is everyone else using?

I posted what set I was using on the last page of the ranger guide, it's not completely optimal, if doing augs,
* dex wins out a bit over str
* crit chance and crit damage both good to go for
* DO NOT get Weaponskill damage for jishnu's, it is a multihit weaponskill and weaponskill damage only affects the first hit of a ws, crit damage will do much more for you as long as your base crit rate is high enough
* Fotia neck and waist, it is multihit
* putting some STP in your ws set can help you get to 1k tp again faster
* Make sure to have diff sets for diff accuracy content, weaponskills get +100 accuracy but only on the first hit and Jishnu's is a multihit ws

Example:abnoba kaftan is a great jishnu's piece, but has no ranged accuracy, for more ranged accuracy you'd want something like sayadio's kaftan or a well augmented herc body.

Adhemar path B is really good for Jishnu's because of STR + DEX but you miss out on ranged acc/ranged attack augments from path C or need multiple sets. If you managed +1 you'd also have crit chance. You get no ranged attack but it still wins according to spreadsheet over C for jishnu's damage. I'll try to finish the spreadsheet this weekend.

I just made 269 Gandiva and did my first month of Ambuscade (mainly for ACC gear for KC fun since the ACC update) and here is my current set:



Now I need to do CP!

That's a good set, especially if you hate augmenting. You can get more damage from an augmented set though for hands, legs and body. Also Apate will out perform Ramuh+1 and is for most, far cheaper. Moonshade instead of telos also, for more crit chance unless you are aiming for more STP in your ws set then that is a good choice. Perun +1 is good also, but Oneiros will provide damage at the cost of accuracy. For herc aug pieces if you choose to go that route, crit damage is far and away the most valuable stat.

With that set in the spreadsheet with pdif capped I'm getting 21.2k WS.

With this set I've posted before:
ItemSet 344919

in the same setup jishnu's is doing 24.7k though it hops to 23.4k with just oneiro's knife.

Interestingly though, Jokushu Haidate perform better than even perfect aug herc legs due to their high DEX with crit rate. They do lack any form of ranged acc or attack though so I could see them falling off if pdif isn't capped, I might start including them in my main set though as I still have a lot of augmenting to do before I'm happy with herc anyway and only using NQ atm for adhemar. Also I used path B for adhemar though for anything hard you'd want path C. I should note the bow I used in the spreadsheet was fail-not.

Has anyone tried:
Sub WAR
Main Jupiter's Staff
Sub Brave grip or Claymore Grip

Wondering if it would be worth it.

jupiter staff does nothing but make the staff critical more, not ranged/ws, and using a staff while /war would lose the bonus gained from fencer. there is a reason you don't see other rangers doing this

Oneiros knife will boost crit damage for ranged attacks.

One has more damage and one has more RACC. There is no magical pony making fancy tricks with those stats. What you see is what you get.

Probably something like this:

ItemSet 351458

-Hercuelan Legs 15 DEX and Crit DMG
-Cape 30 DEX, Crit Rate 10%

-Can replace feet with [Thereoid Greaves]or [Herculean DEX15 Crit DMG 3%]
-Use Camouflage when timer is up before WS. [This will make 44% critical rate using that set]

Absolutely, its a valid option.
Yet you do lose DEX compared to other options.

oneiros dagger/nusku would likely yield your best results. After that, not too many +DEX options in the weapon/sub slots for RNG.

Thanks, I have been playing around with different weapon combos with both /WAR and /NIN, trying to weigh +DEX vs. Crit DMG vs, Base RNG ATK.

Options Below:

/Warrior
Perun+1 / Nusku Shield
ItemSet 352068

Oneiros / Nusku
ItemSet 352065

/Ninja

Oneiros / Atoyac
ItemSet 352066

Odium / Atoyac
ItemSet 352067


The Odium/Atoyac give +25 DEX/AGI, +13 STR and +5 STP. Is that worth giving up Fencer from /WAR and or 10% Crit DMG from Oneiros?

question on a slot:


body-has anyone had success in aiming for a DEX/racc/ratk/crit damage% augmented Herculean Vest? I'm wondering how it would fare against the Meg. Cuirie+2. BGWiki lists caps for Crit damage% as 5% with Fern stones, so yes it's 1% less than the Meg+2 gives you without the stone headache, but the Herc body also comes with 3% crit rate.

seems not worth it when you'd need 10 DEX and 5 crit just to be 1 short of each compared to curie. not to mention the giant lack off r. acc/atk

I agree it doesn't seem worth it- but two things made me consider it:

1. With the plethora of racc available these days, combined with the lower accuracy requirements of content and stewpots, I think the loss of racc is tolerable.

2. Clearly there is a loss of crit damage. But, you gotta crit first, which is why having a piece with the combination of both crit rate and crit damage seemed appealing.

Any up to date sets posted, would be appreciated. I’m confused on what’s a good amount of Crit rate vs crit dmg? Looking for a good post am3 set as well. Thanks in advance.

For Gandiva's users, do you just use JR on 1K TP when AM3 is up or is there a more effective way to do more damage?

Yes, I WS at ~1k during AM3, unless my AM3 timer is about to expire and I dont have a barrage ready. Then I will hold to build back to 3k as timer expires. I will also hold off on WS if Camo is on.
