    Floor 30+ Tip for Hunter's

    Here is a small tip.

    When you have the chance get the skill Arrow Hail!
    You will need it if you are primarily a marksman/hunter, bring many Mana potions as well as Health.

    You WILL need it on floor's 30+!
    Especially


    I'll provide a video of the Arrow Hail and AOE tactic's if requested.

    Err... depends on the skills, stats and equipment, I'd say, because I completely disagree.

    Why would You need it? It's a skill that adds flat damage, and that's it. Explosive Arrow has more AoE (and does more damage anyways o.O), Ricochet does even more damage and has a great range, heck, I guess even aimed shot could be more useful. For starters, they don't make You a mana pot junkie.

    As long as the damage calculation for the three aforementioned skills stays the same and the enchantment system is not overhauled, nothing beats Explosive Arrow paired with a crazy DPS bow

    Edit: If there's anything I'd absolutely have to recommend, it's the Haste spell and a couple of points into defensive magic mastery. Enables You to outrun the Green Zealot Rays of Absolute and Utter Annihilation (tm).

    Now, I've not actually put any points in Arrow Hail to see how effective it is, but I've had my Vanquisher (hard) get through the endgame without much problem by having a well-invested pistol (500-600+ dps) and concentrating on critical chance and high knockback. That combination with exploding shot works wonders at killing things quickly - especially clumps of enemies - and keep the stronger enemies away (like boss monsters) with high knockback. Using exploding shot my standard damage was in the 1k-1.5k range with 28% crit chance for 3k-4k damage. The other nice thing about explode shot as your standard attack, is that it is much easier to aim. No need any more to click right on a guy (which can be hard sometimes on certain baddies, or in the thick of battle); instead, one can simple hold shift and fire at the ground near where there are enemies or where you think enemies are up ahead. This works really well in the last levels with all those stairs you can pretty much bombard everything as they pile up at the bottom. Also, when there are enemies up on towers or higher ledges, you can shoot them and the blast will still blow them away through the walls: even if you don't have anywhere near line of sight!

    It gets the job done

    Of course, I also had freeze shot maxed as well (so that I had some kind of decent attack in the low-level game) to slow tough monsters down, or shoot down skinny halls/paths that explode just wouldn't do justice to.

    The nice thing about Arrow Hail compared to other marksman skills is that it hits where you aim it. You don't need a clear line-of-sight, which means you can attack over ledges or behind obstacles. That said, I wouldn't use it as my only attack skill.
