Long ago in pre-renewal. Only Double Strafe Type ruled the PVP. While Trappers are only for WoE, and Blitz Builds are only for MVP. But nowadays, since dex damage was nerfed, Double Strafe Type also went nerfed and trappers were boosted a lot. Aside from the damage output, they are also invisible.
1. Hunter Trapper
PVP: 5/5; MVP: 5/5; WoE: 5/5; — IMBA if you’re good -_-
Recommended for: People With Fast Reflexes like PVP Monk users. High Complexity Build.
“If you’re fast, then it’s great, if you’re slow like me, aww man, sell that account to somebody else who is faster.”
To be honest, the first time I used a Trapper Hunter was only this year. I never used them before since the most popular build in pre-renewal was Ankle Snare + Double Strafe build. Now that mines are already invisible and knowing that they actually stack on one cell, people said that Trappers ruled the THRO PVP,WoE, and even 7v7. Before… Blacksmiths, Knights and Monk ruled the PVP. But now, since mines are invisible and stacks, a lot of people die just by stepping on the wrong cell. A lot of 7v7 fights were also won by Trapper Hunters. It’s even hard to use horong card against it, unless you are super careful.
99 Dex and 99 Int is the basic build for a Trapper Hunter which deals the maximum damage output among all Hunter Trappers. But sometimes you don’t need MAXIMUM damage, especially on fast-paced battles like PVP or 7v7 where the enemy is front of you. So some people prefer taking AGI and VIT. For the damage calculation, you might want to check Tribe’s Damage spreadsheet. But still, for WoE, pure builds like 99 Dex 99 Int make a lot of damage difference.
By the way, Freezing Trap + Blast Mine is also a good combo for double damage. Since Freezing Trap turns enemies to water and blast mine is wind. Thanks to Mark Capili for this idea. Though, sadly, a lot of people are wearing Marc Cards on WoE so this will be most effective in PVP only.
“What are the differences between Land Mine, Blast Mine, and Claymore?”
Man… those are skills, we’re gonna talk about skills on another post. Anyway with the stats…
Suggested Stats: Str 0-20, Agi 0-60, Vit 0-50, Dex 80-99, Int 60-99;
My Plan Stats: Agi 31, Vit 43, Int 87, Dex 90;
Pros: Very High Damage Output, Mines are not Visible, Mines are Stackable, Can 1 Hit Combo Everyone
Cons: Very Paper, Short Range, If you have slow hands, or slow reflexes, you’re gonna have a baaaaad time. Not gonna play this character to be honest, as it is a mainstream IMBA and I have slow reflexes :/
Required Equipment: Composite Bow 4 Drops Card or 4 Plankton Cards or whatever, 2 Zerom Cards, Indonesian Beret.
Here’s a sample equipment of a Trapper Hunter. Green Sandals, Immune Hood, Unfrozen Tights, Robo Eye, and Rainbow Scarf are not required to be called a Trapper Hunter. They just add minimal Dex/Int but you’d want them in to complete your Equips.
2. Hunter Blitzer
PVP: 3/5; MVP: 5/5; WoE: 2/5;
Recommended for: People who love DPS and just wanna click and AFK. Cost-efficient farming.
“You love Phantom Assassin in DoTA? Well, this one’s for you! Just click and watch your enemy die”
Blitzers. Blitzers look fun to watch as they look like they have the best attack speed among all. Also, you don’t have to think a lot. All you just have to do is click and kill. Sometimes when they get near you, you can use charge arrow. If they are too many, use Sandman trap.
As you can see on the picture I used, I wore Angel Spirit which adds 15 Hit since my DEX is not too high. Fish in Mouth is also a good option for hunting but that’s level 99 so… yeah, I don’t need it. I also added 30 STR for weight capacity since this is recommended for farming. 30 VIT so the heal of potions/fishes would increase by 60%; INT for additional falcon damage and since we use some skills sometimes; DEX for damage and I believe that’s good enough for hunting mobs, and average LUK for an average chance of Falcon Attack.
Suggested Stats: Str 0-30, Agi 80-99, Vit 0-30, Int 0-20, Dex 60-90, Luk 15-60;
My Plan Stats: Str 30, Agi 99, Vit 30, Int 26, Dex 60, Luk 41;
Pros: Too easy to use. Cost-efficient.
Cons: Like I said, DPS is not really recommended in WoE or PVP.
Required Equipment: Quad Cursing Composite Bow or any combination of Savage Bebe, Metaller, Requiem, and Magnolia; Pantie Set, Snake Head Hat, Angel Spirit. Fish in Mouth.
3. Hunter Double Strafe
PVP: 4/5; MVP: 4/5; WoE: 4/5;
Recommended for: People who can still “focus target” opponents in a clash.
A lot of us, when in Clash, even in DoTA just spam area of effect skills during a clash. Same with WoE. When people are too crowded, all we usually do is arrow shower or use Traps. But there are still people who have keen eyes who and observant enough to find the weakest link and kill them. Having the longest range in WoE, DS Hunters target paper-but-lethal Jobs like Low-vit Assassins, other Hunters, and Wizards mainly. NEVAR EVAR TARGET TANKS!
Months ago, when I posted it in ROPH Official Community that Pure DS Hunters are already weak and no longer in the list of “What Job is the Best for you”, many were provoked and got angry about it. But to be honest, “THERE’S NO SUCH SKILL BUILDS AS PURE DS“. You either have to pick Trap skills or Blitz Skills. Your choice… Therefore, I’m just adding this build now as a secondary build so you can mix it with either of the two above. Still I’m not listing it on What Job and Build is Best for You, because you’re either gonna be a Blitzer or Trapper anyway. You can go 99 AGI 99 DEX Pure DS Hunter but I’m sure you’re going to make a new character again.
Suggested Stats: Str 0-9, Agi 70-99, Vit 9-75, Dex 70-99;
My Plan Stats: Agi 92, Vit 49, Int 3, Dex 90;
Pros: Above Average Damage, Longest Range, Kills Paper Jobs in milliseconds.
Cons: Pure DS Builds Can’t Kill Tanks. Paper because you have no shield, Hard to master in WoE.
Required Equipment: Hydra Hunter’s Bow, Pantie Set, SCH, Zerom Cards, Brooch or Gloves
