Whats your opinion on Wind Archers?

In an earlier thread, I had stated I was looking to main a new class.
Being an NL is too expensive, and hard to keep up, plus I find it getting somewhat boring.

So I figured I'd return to my roots of the first class I ever chose(bowman).
What's your guys opinion on Maining a Wind Archer to the end(lvl 250)? Also I've currently got 18b funding, but by the end of the week will be at 30bil, in case that means anything.

Do you find wind archers to be good? They seem like a fun class to play with beautiful skill animations from what I've seen on the maplestory website.

They are a lot of fun and easy to maneuver. I made one when I recently returned to maple and it's now my main. I have no regrets.

Wind archers are above average in a lot of aspects such as mobility and damage.
They're very straightforward, not a lot of ways to maximize damage so you can pick the mechanics up very fast.
Not needing mastery books and gaining 1 base dex per 2 levels is really nice as well.

If you need more detailed information, feel free to ask me through a pm or just leave a reply!

Aside from the elemental ignore removal in the upcoming Reboot, I think WAs get a buff for %boss damage. I'm not a fan of the shade of green Nexon colored WAs, but other than that, WAs are cool.

Ohh now i'm curious.

Are they decent without funds / minor funding?

Do they have high dps?

wind archers are the weakest in dps at the minute compared to every other bowmans so I think

Cygnus knights don't need mastery books which is very nice for lesser funded people.
Our damage without much funding is average in comparison to the bowman branch but compared to all classes we're a tad above average.
DPS wise we're quite shaky since our 'final attack' does not proc instantly, bosses that have invincibility frames such as the burrowing of Vellum and teleporting of Von Bon will cancel it out.
But we still do a big amount of 1v1 damage, our main bossing skill Song of Heaven gains extra damage the less targets we hit, so on bosses like Gollux where there's only 1 target you'll dish out more!
The main thing that makes Wind Archer excel is that we (for now ) have 50% elemental ignore once we reach 4th job, it makes us have a way easier time at Gollux, Root Abyss and Magnus.
Not to forget, we gain an additional +1 dex for every 2 levels! So say you're level 200, you'll be getting an extra +100 base dex just from our passive

How would you saw bm fair vs wind archers? I love my BM but final attack on WA looks soo much cooler.

@bardel7 unfunded wise they're pretty equal. Nornal funded (about 1.5m range) Wind Archer will be better, but once you hit about 15k stat, bowmaster will take over.
