    The only bosses I'd imagine you facing are the Mushmom family, making Double Shot better, however in most cases Arrow Blow is much better. It can potentially shoot 3 mobs at once, if you have a mob in front of you as a target and another above the above mob will be hit too (Normally not possible. I believe it's a glitch with targeting) and mobbing is just so much better than single targets. Arrow Blow also has replay value to it in later jobs. Before Chaos I used it on Pkirby a fair amount even though I had Inferno and Arrow Rain too.

    On my Ranger, I put points on Arrow Bomb last, and went with Enhanced Basics + Final Attack, and used Arrow Blow pretty much until 3rd job, then I never touched it again. I don't see a reason to use it after 3rd job, when Inferno does the same thing, but better, and you also have Arrow Rain.

    We weren't discussing 3rd job anyway.

    Also Enhanced Basics is gone, but Arrow Blow is still a good skill.

    Double shot...
    arrow blow is replaced in 2nd job by level 1 arrow bomb
    Double shot will still be used as it does more dmg than arrow bomb (more chances to crit + proc FA) for single targets, stragglers, bossing, etc.
    levels 10-30 zip by so fast anyway, shouldnt take you more than a day

    No. It won't be used. What bossing will you do in 2nd? You shouldn't be doing any bossing. Learn 2 Maple.

    -Mushmom family

    -Event Ergoths

    -Eliza

    You might need that extra damage for Monster Park PQ too.

    I still advocate arrow blow as it's an awesome skill, though.

    That bossing isn't serious enough to need Double Shot. Arrow Blow is just fine and more useful in other cases.

    Just a quick note:

    You're still able to have 11 Double Shot, which is only 4 below max. 11 DS is more than enough for the minimal amount of bossing early on. Max DS matches lvl 20 Arrow Bomb damage anyway, so it's pretty much useless past 1st job.


    If you really really want an early single target hit, just put 11 Arrow Blow and 15 DS. You'll probably still be 1 hitting with AB anyway.
