[S/Wd] Scout/Warden Guide 2019

  • This guide is based on old thread from 2016 but i'm trying to make new updated one here.
    feel free to comment if something is lacking or incorrect so ill update it.




    Equipment & Stats

    -Ranged weapon:
    Crossbow - (tiered to the highest tier), (gives the most damage and crit).

    -Off-Hand:

    1H-Sword - (Stat Stick), (gives the most p.att).

    -Armor:
    Leather gear - (with either all crit or Hard mode set for the extra damage).


    -Stats
    Dex/P.att - x4
    Str/P.att - x2

    Statting can be down to the person by using dex/p.att and str/p.att in any order due to them giving both 1 point of p.att per 1 point of dex/str (best would be 4/2).



    Buffs

    -Item shop foods:

    [Featured Cuisine Delicacy] - (+4% all attributes)
    [Soulmate Mixed Dessert] - (+7% Str & Dex + 3% P.atk & Crit dmg)

    -Crafter foods:
    [Hero Potion] - (+20% all attributes),
    [Caviar Sandwich] - (+10% crit hit dmg) these can be crafted and gotten from your housekeeper,

    SkillRotatio


    -“short buffs” or “burn buffs”

    1.[Caviar Sandwich] - (or the house maid one)

    2.[Target Area]

    3.[Lute/Tamb]

    4.[Strong Stimulant]

    5.[Savage Power]

    6.[Tranquillity powder]

    7.[Arcane potion]

    8.[extinction potion]

    9.[Blood arrow]

    10.[ft/sa/ibw]

    11.[Arrow of Essence]

    12.[Going It Alone]


    -Solo Rotation:
    1.[Snipe]
    2.[Autoshot] - (toggle it on during Snipe Cast)
    3.[Charged Chop]
    4.[Shot] - (spam shot)
    "boss should be dead"

    -Party Rotation:
    1.[Vamp arrow] - (if you have scout/rogues in the party)

    2.[shot]

    3.[Snipe] - (on knight/warrior AD)

    4.[charged chop] - (on knight/warrior AD)

    5.[Reflected shot] - (if you have time on AD)

    6.[shot]

    “boss should be dead”


    Most of the other skills compared to Shot are really weak for scout besides Snipe and Charged Chop.
    Hidden Peril is nice for the chance of a 1 second cast Snipe but my personal preference is to cast snipe at the start of my rotation while solo.
    When in a raid for a high end instance my rotation slightly varies depending on what support is in party.

  • for weapon you will want to use a 1h sword as it gives the most p.att


    Aged Realgar Wine(+30% Attack Power M.atk & P.atk)

    Hot Stew(+30% P.atk)



    aren't sold and super rare to find


    buffs are missing a ton of them (class buffs/sw titles/mirror)


    skill rotation is wrong for bosses (semi ok for trash)


    it's ok for leveling tho but would need a massive shuffle

  • Weapons

    They should focus on getting a xbow since it gives the most damage and crit

    1h sword for max p.att gain

    Gear/stats

    Full leather gear with either all crit or get the hard mode sets for the extra damage

    Statting can be down to the person by using dex/p.att and str/p.atts in any order due to them giving both 1 point of p.att per 1 point of dex/str (best would be 4/2 (I think not looked at new values of stats))

    Buffs


    guild p.att buff

    You can use the item shop foods or you can use the “free” token coin ones they give less % but perfect if you are free to play

    hero pot

    steamed fish steak

    having a level 50 pet with the attack skill maxed (gives 10% more)


    "other buffs"


    you can get a 3% attack buff from hall of earth and chaos vortex when they are not open
    warlock 6%
    druid/warrior buff OR priest attack buff



    As for item set skills I have forgot names of them but there are better versions from higher level instances



    “short buffs” or “burn buffs”

    Order Should roughly be

    Caviar Sandwich (or the house maid one)

    Target Area

    Lute/Tamb

    Strong Stimulant

    savage power

    Tranquillity powder

    Arcane potion

    extinction potion

    Blood arrow

    ft/sa/ibw

    Arrow of Essence

    Hunter stance (grotto of horrors scout set skill (better version from hos one))


    Skill rotaion

    Vamp arrow (if you have scout/rogues in the party)

    shot

    Snipe (on knight/warrior AD)

    charged chop(on knight/warrior AD)

    Reflected shot (if you have time on AD)

    shot

    “boss should be dead”
