Thread: Arrow Blow vs Double Shot (Post Ascension)

  1. #1

    Icon7 Arrow Blow vs Double Shot (Post Ascension)

    So, I reset all my skill points and I really have no idea if I should max out AB or DS. Also, AB deals 164% to three enemies at level one. Does that mean each enemy is taking 164% worth of damage?

    PS: Does it whether Bowman or Crossbowman maxes AB or DS? I remember during the pre-BB era, Bowman were supposed to max out DS and Crossbowman were supposed to max out AB. That policy no longer applies to Post Ascension Bowmans/Crossbowmans, right?

    If Arrow Blow still mobs and Double Shot still doesn't, then Arrow Blow is still superior.

    Is there ever a moment in a Bowman's or Crossbowman's life where they might face mob-less monsters or are there plentiful enough maps for them to always spam their mob skills on mobs?

    The moment in your life where you use mob skills a lot less is generally 4th job. Before that about 95% of the time will be spent with a mob skill.

    Single target skills are for bossing. You also wouldn't want to use a 1st job single-target to attack bosses.

    doesnt really matter, with no enhanced basics, both skills are useless at both 2nd jobs. 11AB/DS and 15AB/DS makes barely any difference.
    11AB - 208% to 3
    15AB - 220% to 3
    11DS - 143%x2
    15DS - 155%x2

    Just get 15 AB and don't debate a silly topic. It's good to speed through 1st job and get your 2nd job mobber.

    It does mean each mob takes 164% damage, not 164% damage spread out among three mobs. No, it doesn't matter whether you're going to be a crossbowman or hunter, Arrow Blow is what you want. You're not going to use it after 2nd job, and Arrow Blow will help you get there faster than Double Shot anyways.

    We don't have Enhanced Fundamentals/Basics anymore.

    Remember when Wind Breakers use to only have Double Shot? Those days sucked.
