    Great guide . Ill build my archer exactly by your guide .
    BTW what is the key for Wings of Grace ?

    You use it when you accidentally aggro a boss. You have to time it so that the 3-second invincibility window protects you from the boss's attack.

    There are other uses for WoG. That's just the primary one.

    Which build are you using? That is, how are you distributing your stat points?

    It won't matter much. The reason it's not recommended to level them is because level 1 take aim has far more utility (skipping the charge time for the quick chi at a lower MP cost than most other skills) than it gains from being leveled prior to sage or demon version. Quickshot is another skill that, while okayish early on, winds up becoming mostly useless until you get the sage/demon version, so leveling that early on is seen as mostly a waste.

    Thank you so much for writing this guide. I haven't played for 4 years and I'm going to try out an archer. This guide answered pretty much all my questions.

    Thanks again<3

    I've been using it with a good amount of success over the last few days, there is a point around lvl 18-20 where your a bit squishy but once you get knockback arrow very few mobs have actually been able to get close enough to cause any damage (including ranged) all in all I'm happy with it.

    I believe the PvE portion is fine, if only b/c PvE is really easy now with free Jone's Blessing, Dreamchaser Packs, and free daily HP/MP charms up to level 60.

    Just wondering as others have if this build is still useful, or if it's too outdated.

    Annor, I have found your build and use info of utmost use. Shame on the ego's (and there are many...looks at wizards, lol). However, I am just starting to get a hang of my Archer and I love her. I did not realise some of the things that Annor mentioned, so thank you again Annor. And Fleuri, well...talk about opions, you need to check yours before you start typing. Try to remember being somewhat NEW to your archer. Fleuri, it is people like you that make PW miserable to play.
