Stupid questions

I've heard some rumors about skills and want confirmation

1. Does sage Take Aim require channeling for max damage? I heard no, and the description seem to agree, but I did some testing and it appears to be false. Are my tests being screwed due to high range of damage on my bow?

2. Boa is unaffected by range. This just seems counter to everything I know about archer...

3. Damage bonus in air to air combat? Do we really do more damage in the air?



Also, anyone have some tips for a sage archer? (pvp)

    No such thing as a stupid question except ones not asked. There are however ignorant questions which are acceptable under circumstances. I'll anwser these to the best of my abilities. (Since I'm pretty sure the other active forumers are demon besides like 2)

    1. Yes take aim does more damage the longer it charges. Damage spikes can be misleading. Since Take aim is only 3 seconds and each second gives you an additional 125% weapon damage starting at the initial 125% at 0 seconds.

    2. BoA is affected by range. The only skills not affected by range are your Metal skills and wingspan/pledge.Edit to add Sage deadly shot before some smartass says it.

    3. False. The misconception you might be thinking is demons extra 2% crit from using natural elven wings which don't have to be active(flying) for the effect as long as they are equipped. The reason some people stick archers into the air is because that is where clerics and venos tend to be in some TW situations and those are primary targets for some squads.

    Sage's strong point is our range stun and damage. Try to use those in your favor. What exactly are you looking for tip wise in PvP.

    Against specific classes?

    TW / PK?

    Skill combinations?

    etc.

    There are (apparently) TW archers that likes to barrage full r9s from the air... doing 2 to low 3 digit damages.
    1. If I kill you; do something about it yourself, don't go complaining to my wife.
    2. If you have less kill counts then me, don't expect me to take pk advice from you.
    3. If you are hiding behind an alt, don't expect me to acknowledge your existence.

    I did that once; it was hilarious. Out of spontaneity, I triple sparked and clawed a BM that was wielding Deicides.

    Clawing people in TW is one of the best ways for an archer to troll. I especially like doing it to other archers. The typical conversion rate is 1 claw kill = 7 bow kills so it can definitely be worth it.

    Clawing with cat ears on also instantly raises your adorable points to over 9000. :3

    No they aren't, the whopping 150 damage they deal on me really makes me feel like I have an itch somewhere that keeps coming back 5 times every second :(
