Artillerist Leveling Build

Artillerist is a heavy armoured, long-distance class which uses a huge mechanical cannon to deal massive, area of effect, explody attacks. This type of character represents low mobility and requires good positioning but compensates that with insane burst damage. Artillerist stands out for great AoE clear and nuking single target damage with a major downside of long cooldowns.

Leveling Skills Overview

Napalm Shot – Decent damaging skill with secondary damage over time effect

Multiple Rockets – Great skill for both single target and AoE

Flamethrower – Great skill for both single target and AoE with a downside of channeling in only one direction

Air Raid – Great skill for both single target and AoE. Requires a pre-cast which involves risk of missing the target.

Summon Turret – Has low damage output but applied damaging debuff on foe

Gravity Explosion – Massive skill for AoE clear. Due to long cooldowns of all Artillerist skills, it should also be used for a single target. Applies Weak Point Lv. 1

Homing Barrage – Great skill for both single target and AoE. But again requires a pre-cast which involves risk of missing the target. Applies Weak Point Lv. 1

Energy Field – Deals no damage but provides Artillerist with a shield that absorbs damage, very useful

Leveling Gear

During the leveling process you shouldn’t be too focused on getting best in slot gear for each level or stats. It is recommended to always pick the highest gear score items that are available for you. Primary stats on your gear during leveling are: Crit, Swiftness and Specialization.

  • Crit – Increases critical strike chance by certain %. 
  • Swiftness – Increases attack, movement and cooldown recovery speed.
  • Specialization – Bonuses from this speciality differs for each class, but generally it increases effects(damage, cooldown, recovery etc.) of your special and awakening skills.
