Kamikaze Ranger Bow Musket
This build is full range and full damage. Complete glass canon with your only mitigation of damage is not to take any at all.
You'll need to practice not getting hit and landing you shots but once you've done that you should be fine. lol
If you don't find the build works you need to get gud.
As I level I'll update the build.
Armor, Gear & Weapons
This is a Ranger build which is max Dex. You'll have to dig for it in the trade post.
For you armor weight you need to be light so you can have max damage but also and more importantly you can roll. Optimised would be 1 medium chest and the rest 4 pieces light.
You'll want dex amulet and dex ring with increased thrust damage to really max out your damage.
Same with weapons Dex all the way and if you can get a perk for the build all the better.
We're going full dex on this build which will give you:
5% Crit Chance
5% Trust Damage
Dodge cost 10 less stamina
10% bonus backstab and headshot damage
10% bonus critical damage on stunned, slowed or rooted enemies
Guaranteed critical hit after a dodge roll
After this you can put in to int for more musket damage or constitution for survivability
Powder Burn for huge dot damage
Powershot for extra damage
Trap for CC
I dislike trap as people tend to avoid so I'd recommend sticky bomb when you level. Also shooter's stance is a good ability to open with but you tend not to use it mid fight
Passives we're going full sniper headshot mode so make sure you hit heads.
Poison shot more dot damage
Evade shot for stun and mobility
Rapid shot as a finisher just make sure you got range before you use this as you're stationary
Passives you'll want to get Dodge and Weave and Archer's speed as this will help you create space between you and your enemy.
