Archers and Mages are the fastest leveling characters in this game. So I prioritized it last since it’s fast to do anyway. I have even already job changed it into a Hunter before I was able to write this post. I leveled up on the same spots as the Mage did.
In my own biased opinion, playing an archer is a bit boring. Except if you go BLITZ Type. Which looks fun, this is why I have my own BLITZ type Hunter.
Blitz Type (SP Efficient Hunting) – Basic Stats Hybrid: Str 10, Agi 90+, Int 36, Dex 60+, Luk 40+
Str for more arrows to carry, 10 str = 300 weight limit, so that’s 900 arrows. Agi for obvious reasons, Int for additional 6 SP Regen and Falcon Damage, Dex 60+ just enough to hit several mobs, and Luk 40+ to increase the chance of auto blitz.
Double Strafer (PVP) – Basic Stats: Dex 99, Agi 99, Vit/Str (Remaining Stats)
No questions. I definitely get bored with this build because it’s IMBA in PVP in this patch. Hunters are usually the king of PVP as of now.
This is my Archer – Hunter Skills plan that I have made in RMS Skill Simulator. I actually JOB CHANGED at JOB Level 42 because I easily get bored. Also I don’t think I’d need to level 9 my Arrow Shower since I am a Blitz Type who just click the enemy and let them die. Also, every thing below the Trap Skills should be maxed out since they are the Blitz Beat Skills.
Archer Job Level 1-11
This is where I could suggest you to go Payon Cave. I don’t have a picture now but I will upload soon. Anything you see there except mushrooms until you get Level 10 Double Strafe, if you are poor and has no SP pots, go for Level 5 Owl’s Eye and Level 5 Vulture’s Eye.
Actually, during leveling up, Level 7 Vulture’s Eye is enough. I think Level 10 Vulture’s Eye is just for WOE since the satellite view is higher, while on most maps, you could already hit any mob on screen with Level 7 Vulture’s Eye. Please correct me if I’m wrong.
Remember that going for SPORE HEAVEN is also a great option. Spores takes 75% more damage from wind arrows.
Archer Job level 11-21
Just equip a fire arrow and kill Mukas again in this Map. 1 Map Right and 1 Map Top from Morroc. Once you reach Job Level 21 wherein you already have Level 10 Double Strafe, Level 5 Owl’s Eye and Vulture’s Eye. You already have the right to go to Payon Field 10.
Another option again, like the Mage leveling spots, would be EGGYRAS.
Archer Job Level 21+
Payon Field 10
Yes, only three leveling spots to reach Job Level 42 or 50. It’s even much simpler than mage. Archers are the most versatile characters especially because this server sells Elemental Quivers for Rok Points. I’m even planning to build a BOW type thief in preparation for Rogue because of this.
An archer could even visit Glast Heim and kill Zombie Prisoners and Skeleton Prisoners but I tell you it’s not very efficient and the competition is too high.
Uhh… yeah you can but they’re crowded now. I didn’t try to level up here since it’s a really mainstream and super-crowded. But you can try if you want, especially in the new server.
As always, ayothaya has been everyone’s favorite for job leveling. Also that guy using a bow is a Thief, but it is equipped with bow and fire arrow, so that’s it.
That archer’s not me. But if you ask for an ideal leveling spot for an archer? Here’s one of the best areas. Why? BECAUSE PARASITES DON’T MOVE like Greatest Generals. Just /memo here with your Priest or Acolyte and warp your Archer here. This Archer is around Level 20 because of its very slow ASPD. I also mentioned this leveling spot in Acolyte Leveling Guide since Acolytes can go level ANYWHERE.
Not enough options? Check where I leveled up using my Bow Thief.
My Hunter Now
Btw, I’ve got a tip after job change. Once you job change, go outside and kill mobs up to Job Level 2 just enough to get Falcon Mastery so you can go here in the rightmost part of the Hunter’s Guild.
