This build will also be better overall for dungeons and raids. You should use the engravings we mentioned earlier for this build, Loyal companion or Death Strike.

Keeping in mind disables, AOE attacks, and Elite-focused abilities, the following skills will do you good.

  • Atomic Arrow: An arrow shot that does minor damage on impact but explodes after 2 seconds dealing damage and knocking enemies down.

PvP Sharpshooter Build

When we build a PvP build, our focus is on doing as much burst damage as possible and being quick and agile so that when we do land a hit, it’s a devastating blow.

Taking that into consideration, when a good sharpshooter PvP build should have maxed out swiftness and then domination and lastly crit, stat-wise. This is to build your sharpshooter to become an assassin.

In PvP, you can also take advantage of the fact that you can hit enemies even when you are out of their range of visibility, so essentially they won’t even see your attack coming like your charged shot or Fenrir’s messenger.
