Acrobat & Tempest Skill Build For Each Cap
For all you acrobats wanting to become a Tempest in the future. Here is my personal build that suits my tastes. This build is mainly PvP oriented but it works great in PvE too;more focused on evasion, but that doesnt show till lvl 40-50.Level 24Level 32Level 40Full Tempest Build (Lvl 50)
(OR this one which is my full updated build
)F.A.Q. of Full Tempest BuildWhy is there only 1 point in twin shot?
I chose to only put 1 point in twin shot because the damage increase is insignificant and the range does not increase. Before the nerf on Twin Shot in KDN, the range increased as leveled up so it was more useful. Since now the range stays at 3m, I personally only see this skill as a spammable skill canceller. However, increasing Twin Shot along with the Twin Shot dmg plate will increase the dmg you do since it has such low cooldown. If you like, you can take some SP out of other skills like multi-shot,etc and lvl up Twin Shot.Why not any points in Wisdom of the Owl?
From my end build, you will have points left over. If you want, you can use those points to put ONE in Wisdom of the Owl. In my opinion though, you will get lots of agility which raises your critical and critical chance; makes the buff not that significant. But since you have points left over, why not. You can also use the remaining skill points to put into the Hp and MP passives/Power Tumble/Multi-Shot or if you really want, Twin Shot.Magic Arrow?
I find this skill quite useful, especially in pvp. Magic Arrow is able to hit KDed targets. I primarily use this skill to keep someone KDed (when they try to roll to get away, magic arrow stops them and keeps them on the ground giving you another chance to "pickup" the enemy to continue your combo). This skill is pure self-preference.Spirit Shot?
Spirit Shot is a very useful skill. It helps cancel attacks or stops an enemy from their attack giving you the window to combo them or to run away. This skill can also hit knock-downed enemies.Max Shortbow Mastery?
Extra range and damage to your normal attacks never hurts. ^^Why did you choose Nature's Rage instead of Quake Barrage?
Nature's Rage is the per-requisite for the Tempest skills & Quake Barrage is the pre-requisite for WindWalker skills.I do not understand how Evade works, explain?
Evade is similar to an SM parry. You do NOT need to be standing still for this skill to be in effect, ignore the rumors that say you need to stand still. The ONLY ATTACKS that can be used with this skill in effect are Spirit Shot & Spiral Kick. As long as you are not using any other skill apart from the two mentioned, Evade will be in effect.I really want to use ALL my points, what should I use it on?
If you want to use all your points, then check the UPDATED build beside the lvl 50 title. You can't use the points in the other trees because the points are maxed out there already. The most use of the extra points would be the MP passive, Power Tumble, Owl & Twin Shot; I prefer Twin Shot.Note
- You can exchange a point out of Cyclone Kick & or Furious Winds for Spirit Boost if you want the extra speed in sacrifice of a bit of damage.
- You can choose to take out a point from Evade and use the 4 points in the archer tree. The 2nd point in Evade only gives 1.5% more chance to evade; your preference if it's useful or not.
- You can choose to take points out of Furious Winds/Cyclone Kick for Eagle Dive.
