Most of the rouge builds use a pistol and I dont see any rouge builds use a bow, so I decided to try to build 1 and surprisingly it works quite good. Currently at floor 400+ EP8 and I still can able to kill the boss within 1 - 3 sec and be able to tank the monsters easily without dying at all.
How does this build works?
Your main and the only attack that is going to be used is guidedshot.
you will want to max out guideshot rank because of its effect: +2.5% per rank damage per monster pierced
That means each time an arrow pierce through a monster, it will add +2.5% per guidedshot rank damage and keep increasing when passing another monster until the arrow disappears.
My basic damage per arrow is pretty weak actually, but when there are more monsters nearby, each arrow can potentially become extremely powerful.
Set used: Bloodmagic, Plague, Rage, Permafrost, Pathfinder, Living Force
With bloodmagic, plague and a few crystal, epic hp affix the armor rating is pretty high too, more than enough for Floor 400+ EP8.
Pathfinder further decrease the damage received, which helps for higher floors too.
The Vial is mainly for stealth when the armor is not enough to tank the monsters (Idk since which floor yet)
with the reduce cd and veil talent, Stealth active time and cooldown time are going to be nearly the same, allowing you being invincible for most of the time.
I have no idea how living force actually worked but I feel it will be useful for this build for that +250% damage
Now comes to pros and cons of this build.
Fast monster clearing when there are good number of monsters nearby(ideally 4+)
Auto monster aiming
Tanky (26.42M EHP)
Fast big hits for those who love to see them
Weak on 1v1 situation
Extreme fxxxing UGLY hat (I really don’t like this hat, wish it can be changed)
No good looking dps stats at all
Pet stats since my pet stats is so rubbish
Feel free to suggest improvements
