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. Compared to other ranged classes, Artillerist has high defence. While playing, bear in mind that some abilities need to be precasted by predicting monster movement or specific dodge mechanics.
While using skills in combat, Artillerist gains stacks on his firepower gauge proportionate to mana consumed. Reaching a certain threshold allows to activate Bombardment mode which allows transforming into a static, super-large, anti air cannon with four special abilities, increasing damage output significantly. However this damage boost comes with the downside of losing ability to move or dodge any attacks as well as a limited skills range. This increases the importance of proper positioning even more.
