Sharpshooter PvE Build

The Sharpshooter is one of the few “true” ranged dps of Lost Ark. Most of his skills are able to hit your target from afar and do high amounts of damage. He inflicts damage to his foes in a multitude of ways ranging from arrow showers to powerful charged shots and even sniping from far distances. While battling you generate gauge and can once it is full, summon your companion: A hawk. The hawk does damage over time to your enemies and also gives you access to either a manual damage output you target or to straight up explode on collision with the target, inflicting massive damage.

Desired Stats

Death Strike focuses on primary Specialty and Secondary Crit.

Loyal Companion focuses on primary Crit and Secondary Agility.

Ultimate

In terms of ultimates it’s up to your preference. I suggest personally going with the “storm” one as it is more guaranteed to hit.

Class Engravings

The Sharpshooter has access to 2 different playstyles which are also both viable.

First the more powerful but also harder to master Death Strike: When using Last Flight, you keep up to 50% of your Hawk gauge and increase your own damage by 40% for 8 seconds. This playstyle is very burst oriented and harder to execute. Also not suggested in Tier 1 as it relies on Speciality & Crit.

For our second engraving we have Loyal Companion: Increases Movement speed of your party, increases summon time of your Hawk and once you hit an enemey increases damage taken by you up to 14%. This playstyle is in my personal opinion a bit easier to execute, offers more utility to your group and is quite relaxing. It’s a consistent damage build where you do not rely on your hawk exploding to get into a burst window.

Additional points can be put into the Skills chosen with lesser points.

Viable Engravings

As always, viable engravings are:

  • Grudge
  • Cursed Doll
  • Adrenaline


Additional viable engravings:

  • Massacre

Basic Rotation

The Sharpshooter, like many other classes, has no set rotation but rather a priority or debuff order. It is vital for you to keep up the debuff from atomic arrow at all times. Otherwise you simply want to either spam your abilities as much as possible (Loyal Companion) or generate gauge and then burst into the 8 second window. The playstyles are vastly different from each other so make sure you take the right class engraving to fit your preferences!
