So just wondering what you guys think about Corsair? I feel like brutality is almost a staple for scout builds (except for AA enchanter build, where strike does not benefit from brutality). I mean it also has 2 non-specific offensive skills and 1 skill for each dagger and pistol.
And since no one is discussing about sheriff, I will start one. I’d go with sheriff-linker-corsair. What do you guys think the differences between sheriff and BM are? They seem to play very similarly…
they definitely go together- but they use a play style different than the standard SR Auto builds. This would be more geared towards bossing and trash tanking in a group, and pushing damage via skills. it would play kinda like how the old hackapell did; High mobility and good midrange AOE.
Sheriff’s big problem imo- is it lacks any real defining traits. All of its skills can be found elsewhere in equivalent or more effective forms for the most part.
Its most unique effect is its Redemption buff, but it by itself is not class defining. it needs to have another mechanic layer rather than just increasing evasion and move speed.
IMO Sheriff should have been more focused into Mob control, Mitigation and Single target damage.
This is how i’d Change Sheriff if it were me.
Showdown - Skill (15/15): Becomes active after evading an attack for 3 Seconds. Allows the player to deliver a devastating counter attack that has a (5 * Level)% Chance to Bleed/Blind/Slow/Stun a target. Inflicted Debuff is random.
Showdown:Blind - Trait(1/1): Debuff Inflicted will always be blind.
Showdown:Lucky Shot - Trait(1/1): Reduces Debuff Chance to 1% Per Skill level, but randomly applies up to 3 debuffs. If used with Showdown: Blind, One of the debuffs will always be blind.
Law-keeper - Skill (5/5) - Every time you take damage, the attacker is debuffed with (-2% * Level) Damage (-2% * Level) For 20 Seconds.
Law-keeper: Deputy - Trait (10/10): Deputies under your command gain +1% Damage per Level against targets Debuffed by law-keeper
Deputize - Trait: If you are the party leader, Party members under your command become Deputies of the law, and can benefit from Deputy effects.
Law-keeper:Lone Ranger - Trait (10/10): If you have no deputies, or are Solo, you gain +1% Damage & 1% Critical Rate per level against targets debuffed by lawkeeper
Post Bounty - Skill (10/10): Place a bounty on all nearby targets. Monsters debuffed by bounty have increased Item and silver drop rates for all party members. Monsters have a secondary chance to drop bonus items and silver for the Sheriff. Players Other than the sheriff who placed the bounty, gain silver equal to 10% the cost of the bounty when killing a target under the effects of bounty.
Small ((5 * Skill Level) + Monster level /5 ) - 10/10 Lv 420 = 134 Silver per target
Medium ((20 * Skill Level) + Monster level /2) 10/10 Lv 420 =410 Silver Per target
Large ((50 * Skill Level) + Monster level) 10/10 Lv 420 =920 Silver Per target
Boss ((100 * Skill Level)+ Monster level * 10) 10/10 Lv 420 = 5200 Silver per target
Post Bounty:Justice Served - Trait (20/20): Sheriff Gains 1% Increased damage every time a target under bounty is defeated. Stacks up to (Level) Times for 15 Seconds.
Post Bounty:Most Wanted - Trait (1/1): Triples the Silver Spent for the bounty, but doubles the Items and Silver Dropped.
So, your gathering phase actually becomes a mix of Aggress > Aiming Shot. Aggress has a sizable AOE, and since it technically buff’s aiming shot’s damage by 200%, it gives you a good setup for getting things together, and Rampage. if you are killing quick enough marching/retreat can help bridge the cool down gap
This Setup has a plethora of skills to use, with limacon being drastically reduced in its usefulness. After you get to about level 300 or so, you can completely drop limacon all together and invest in 10/10 retreat, 15/15 concentrated 5/15 Caracole
After playing with this build a bunch last night i wound up re-speccing to this Skill Setup: [Scout > SR > Sheriff > Outlaw]. It felt cleaner, and flowed way better than trying to get limacon to be useful.
i was aiming for more of a bossing setup thinking i’d have enough AOE on Sheriff/Outlaw, but that wasnt the case. Retreat shot definitely helps a ton for trash.
just for the bossing DPS. I wound up moving skills again because Redemption is actually hot-garbage and only needs 1 point. It’s tooltip is extremely deceptive.
The way it actually functions is it gives you a 100% Chance to evade for a short time, and then after your evasion ends, you get a movement speed increase. Its tooltip read as if it was identical to outlaw’s bully, but for evade and movespeed.
