Mar 26, 2018 Epic Crafting
Epic Crafting is here. A new level 90 epic weapon takes the stage…
+12% Moving Speed
+2% Physical Critical Hit
+3 Saw Blades
Cast Sunset Spectrum buff on player upon equipping, granting +35% P/M/I attack
+12% Additional Damage
It is somewhat weaker than Gold Lux. +3 Saw Blades is comparable (but slightly weaker than) +1 to 1-80 skills. ~47% damage modifier is weaker than Gold Lux’s 54%. But if you don’t have a ton of demon invites you might find crafting a more desirable option. (Either way you will be using Savior Revolver at the end so don’t get too attached to this thing)
Feb 27, 2018 Origin Patch
New skills: Chain Divider, Revolver Upgrade
Reworked skills: Chain Glint -> Stylish, Veiled Cut, Chain Powder -> effects moved to TP
Nerfed skills: Silver Bullet
Sept. 6, 2017
There is a balance patch that has recently come out in kDNF that homogenizes male and female rangers; we get revolver mastery, and stylish/chain glint are combined, with some other minor QoL changes. (Character Synergy and Balance Update (August 17th), Female Ranger General)
Male or female?
Males deal slightly more damage. Females are more mobile and have superholds. They play quite similarly otherwise.
Is this class hard?
Some people might compare them to Rogue or Monk in difficulty. With the reworked Stylish they are now much easier to pick up.
How good is she?
She is middle of the pack in many ways; decent damage, good hitcount, good mobility, has a hold or three. But she does not excel in any one category, and she is not as straightforward as other classes.
Just starting out, what gear should I get?
Gracia, dusky west, or sea god’s.
What skills do I get?
This is a typical build on the current patch (Origin)
Silver Bullet is much weaker now.
TP should be spent on BBQ and cubes
What is my BIS??
Savior’s Triumph Revolver
Pet (skill levels, +15% attack damage, petit Crimson Rose)
If you have no additional damage gold lux is comparable to savior revolver, but since many epic sets come with additional damage you would still do well to get a savior revolver at some point.
Upgraded 90 sets are all very strong.
What is our swap gear?
Get +10 Death By Revolver, then fill in the rest with tainted 3rd chronicle pieces imbued with green DBR.
Standard Procedure is less effective than tainted chron pieces at high DBR levels.
Weapons: +3 (GAU-8, biting gin stinger), +2 (webley, various legendary revolvers), +1 (legacy revolver)
Shoulder: +2 (Magic Cataclysm)
Top: +1-2 (pvp top)
Bottom: +1 (Sea God’s Cursed Bottoms, bleak wind suede greaves, big sacrum gaiters)
Sub-equip: +1 (time traveler’s silver watch, quartz spirit)
Ring: +1 (High-tech gunslinger ring)
Title: +1-3 (various event packages)
Pet: +1 (any pet that gives +1 to level 30 skill range)
Platinum emblems: +2-3 (top, bottom, and Unique Motion Aura)
Avatar: +1 (top avatar option)
Enchantment: +1 (various event packages)
The best possible setup is at least +8 from platinum emblems, avatar option, title, enchantment, and pet, with the last +1-2 from a non-weapon equip, while filling in the rest with DBR taints (9 tainted equips and 1 tainted weapon). Its also possible to receive an extra 1 or 2 levels from Metal Line users in your party but you can’t count on that.
