What is a Wild Hunter


Basics
Wild Hunters are 1 of the 3 Resistance classes currently out only in Korean MS. The other 2 are Battle Mage and Mechanic. The Wild Hunters came out in July in KMS in the 2nd part of the Big Bang along with Battle Mages followed by Mecahnics in the 3rd part. Wild Hunters are a class that use Crossbows. They get there jaguar(mount) at 10, which gives them a head start in mobility. Wild Hunters are also allowed to shoot on there mounts.

AP build



Just like all the other archers, Wild Hunter's primary stat is Dexterity and Secondary is Strength. There are 3 type of AP builds:

Strengthless - Semi funded - Adds no strength and pumps up your. Strless are best from 1st job to mid 3rd job.

Low Strength - Well funded - Adds strength regularly until its around 70-100. Best from 2nd job on.

Regular Strength - Little or not funded - Adds strength until level 200. Highly unrecommended, but if you start with no funds this is your path.

Double Jump - MAXED - 10

All of the builds max everything because you have nothing else to max. It all depends what you like, if you like Mobility and speed, go build 2. If you like damage go build 3. I went build 2 because most of the time, you'll jump around and moving around because when I was in first job. I mostly did the job quests, and didn't need damage and attack speed very much.

67 +3 Mine(4)
68 +3 Mine(7)
69 +3 Mine(10)
70 +3 Mine(13)

Soul Arrow - 10 - MAXED
Bomb Shot - 20 - MAXED
XBow Mastery - 20 - MAXED
Jaguar Roar - 20 - MAXED
Swallow - 20 - MAXED
Final Attack - 20 - MAXED
Mine - 13

Bomb Shot is put in at level 30 for mob and damage. Even at level 1, Bomb shot is a great skill. Soul Arrow is put in because triple shot burns lots of arrows and triple shot is still main attack(for 1v1) until bomb shot is maxed and the new accuracy system gives a little advantage over the single hit Bomb shot.. Bomb Shot is maxed next for damage. After follows Final Attack. Final attack after the big bang, there is no animation or delay which means more damage, especially for hurricane. Swallow OR roar is maxed next depending on where your training. Mine is pretty useless because bomb shot/triple shot can deal more damage, and it lags your attack.

Crossroads - 30 - MAXED
Claw Cut - 20 - MAXED
Jaguar Mastery - 20 - MAXED
Trap - 20 - MAXED
Silver Hawk - 20 - MAXED
Blind - 13

At 70, you would get 5-shot, Crossroads, and Silver hawk for a mob, better version of triple shot and a some extra damage/change of stun from hawk. Jaguar Mastery is maxed for mobility reasons. Next comes Crossroads followed 5-Shot for both mob and damage. Claw Cut is maxed followed by trap. A helpful skill and sometimes even fun to use. Silver Hawk adds damage and more stun. Blind is useless to me because you attack at a range anyways, but if you prefer blind. Then I would max blind before Silver Hawk.

Blind - 20 - MAXED

Instead, you max blind first before Silver Hawk or trap. This is a build for people that are strless or fight lots of monsters that hit high and you don't want to burn pots this can allow with trap and blind allowing them not to attack or they miss.
