2: Chung Seiker, the Shooting Guardian





2.1 The Shooting Guardian


While traveling, Chung realized the shortcomings of the Destroyer's slow speed and how open he is to attacks while he himself attacks. As a result, he lightens his cannon and manufactures a second weapon to cover himself should he be open to attacks.
This second weapon is called the "Silver Shooter". The Silver Shooter is enchanted with magic and can shoot through any target. As a result, the openings that the Destroyers offer when Chung attacks, makes the Silver Shooter a perfect compliment to battle enemies with speed.


2.2 Additional Basic Attacks

While you gain a job advancement, you also get extra attack sequences that will improve game play as well as extend the variety of combos.

Note that these sequences are of course, Shooting Guardian exclusive.


>>^XX - Dash, jump and rocket into the air with the Destroyer, then follow up by rapidly firing with the Silver Shooter.


XZZ - Strike the enemy with the Destroyer, then follow with two shots of the Silver Shooter, and finish with a cannon blast using the Destroyer.


>>XXX - Dash past the enemy, fire twice with the Silver Shooter, then finish with a cannon blast using the Destroyer.


*You are to be warned that while all these new basic attacks look fun, you are going to lose MP fast if you spam Silver Shooter attacks. As a Shooting Guardian (and in the future, Deadly Chaser), mana management is highly important.

*Also, please note while these combos seem like an improvement, you will actually be using your base job combos 75% of the time as a SG/DC.



2.3 Shooting Guardian's Skills


With the job advancement, Chung now accesses many skills involving heavy arsenal attacks from the Destroyer, or quick shots with the Silver Shooter. With a new weapon in combination of your first weapon, you are sure to deliver unbelievable, quick attacks.


You will also now see a few skill names with (LOCKED) beside them. This means you cannot access the skill until you do certain skill quests.



(40) Row 9:


Rumble Shot (LOCKED) - Fire out a pulsating cannonball, which pushes and damages monsters up to seven times.
This skill is a close-range dragging cannonball, so this is a nice skill to use during combo attacks. If you're fast enough, you'll combo after it too. You could follow with Z attacks or do your newly gained >>XXX combo. It deals 100% of magic attack damage per hit, and there's at max 7 hits, so it's great skill to keep around. It proves its greatness on small mobs in PvE, or single targets in any situation.
*Skill Note: Improved Explosion(?) - No MP is consumed, but 2 cannonballs will be consumed. Time of explosions will increase. -Obtained from Cash Shop
A very nice skill note. You deal more damage, no MP is needed at all too, but this will need you to be dependent on your cannonball capacity. Be sure to keep watch of your ammunition or else this skill goes to waste.
PvE: 5/5
PvP: 0/5 or 5/5
Hybrid: 0/5 or 5/5

**To unlock Rumble Shot, you must do the Low Branch skill quest, available at Lv20.

Quest 1: You need to buy a low quality scroll (It can be bought from Camilla/PvP Girl for 20k ED)

Quest 2: Collect 2 claws from the Scorpion King in 3-1 on Very Hard difficulty.

Quest 3: Collect 20 necklaces from any Lizard in Bethma (It can be anywhere from 3-1 to 3-4. I recommend 3-3.)

Quest 4: Collect 30 necklaces from the Glitter Race in Feita. (First three maps of Feita are good).

Quest 5: Collect a scroll drop from the boss on map 3-4 in Hard or Above (completely random)
---


Dual Buster - Quickly roll past the enemy while firing two shots with the Silver Shooter.
This skill may feel weak, but it is very useful. While it may not seem like a PvE skill, it's more of a combo skill or a get-out-of-there skill. If you're fast enough, you can combo after this skill, or quickly get away from the other opponent. And in case the other players go for you, you shoot at them! It's really helpful. If you feel you can live without Dual Buster until later, then you can skip it for now.
*Skill Note: Noir Action - Pierces up to 2 more targets and reloads one cannonball. -Obtained from Cash Shop
This skill note is amazing for lovers of Dual Buster. It makes it even more useful in dungeons because of the pierce effect. Not only do you get to deal damage to extra targets in the way, but you get a free cannonball as well. Think of it as Reload on some steroids.
PvE: 0/5 or 5/5
PvP: 5/5
Hybrid: 0/5 or 5/5




(45) Row 10:


Remodel Magazine - Increase the capacity of cannonballs that the Destroyer can hold.
Do not question this passive. More cannonballs? Oh, definitely worth it, especially when it comes to skill spamming. A must max.
If you manage your cannonballs well (which is somewhat a rare case unless your enemies stink at hitting you), and if you think you live well without skill spamming, then you don't have to take this. But you'll miss out on the future Remodel Rifle passive.
PvE: 5/5
PvP: 5/5
Hybrid: 5/5



Intermediate Magical Training - Increases magic damage permanently.
Another magic damage passive. For you to take this, you'll probably get it when you're in your late Lv40s or Lv50s, unless you skipped Remodel Magazine (which is a bad choice). This is of course, a useful passive, and it is needed to get the Magic Adrenaline skill. Though, I only recommend maxing this once you reach late Lv40s or in the Lv50s.
PvE: 5/5
PvP: 5/5
Hybrid: 5/5




(50) Row 11:


Remodel Rifle - Modify your various weapons and enhance their capabilities. Prerequisite: Mastered Remodel Magazine
This passive increases the range and critical damage (not chance) that you deal with the Silver Shooter. This passive is great for critical damage lovers. Even if you're not a critical lover, you would still want this skill because you'll get enhanced range, which is very useful if you want to hit your enemies from a farther distance.
PvE: 5/5
PvP: 5/5
Hybrid: 5/5



Head Shot - Take aim with the Silver Shooter and fire a piercing bullet that hits up to 3 enemies.
This skill is quick and also very damaging. It serves a small mob purpose like Rumble Shot, dealing a single hit up to 3 monsters, but in PvP, it adds to the fun in combos. Best only for PvP. I want to recommend you to max this as soon as possible, but you need your passives first. You may max this when you are in your late level 40s or 50s.
*Skill Note: The REAL Head Shot - Grant a 30% chance to deal double the damage. -Obtained from a rare monster drop.
This further increases the damage Head Shot can do, which is at maximum, 660%, and that is very high. Only take if you love spamming Head Shot all the time.
PvE: 0/5 or 5/5
PvP: 5/5
Hybrid: 0/5 or 5/5




(55) Row 12:


Magic Adrenaline - Increase magic damage by a certain percentage for 10 seconds. Prerequisite: Mastered Intermediate Magic Training
This skill starts out at 30% in Lv1, increasing up to 50% increase at Lv5. Like Int. Magic Training, you're probably only getting this until your late levels. When you finally get this buff, begin getting used to combining this with Comet Crasher.
PvE: 5/5
PvP: 0/5 or 5/5
Hybrid: 0/5 or 5/5



Comet Crasher (LOCKED) - Shoot the Destroyer 135 degrees downwards in midair, bombarding the area with cannonballs. Requires minimum of 3 cannonballs, using up to a maximum of 6.
This skill is what makes the Shooting Guardian so deadly...chaser. Oh, what a bad joke. Anyways, while you have to keep track of your cannonballs (not a deal if you have Remodel Magazine), Comet Crasher does SUPERB damage to single targets, mobs, and bosses of all sizes. At Lv5, using 6 cannonballs, with a maximum of 12 hits, you deal 650% per hit, with the final two hits being 1300%. If you somehow get all hits in, you're dealing 9100%! That's higher than most 300 MP skills. You MUST max this skill, no further questions.
Oh, don't forget to combine this with Magic Adrenaline when you get it.
PvE: 5/5
PvP: 5/5
Hybrid: 5/5

**To unlock Comet Crasher, you must do the Intermediate Branch skill quest, available at Lv30.

Quest 1: Buy the Intermediate Quality scroll (It costs 100k ED from Camilla/PVP girl)

Quest 2: Collect 10 Black Crow Journals from Altera (4-1 is strongly recommended.)

Quest 3: Collect 1 drop, another 1 drop and a collection of 50 chests from map 4-2. (This can take a LOT of runs to complete. The single drops have a very low drop rate so chances are you'll be grinding for a while.)

Quest 4: Collect 2 Dark Spirits from the boss in the third map of Feita (3X-3), Collect 4 wood from the boss in the fourth map of Feita (3X-4).


Quest 5: Achieve B Rank or higher in maps 4-1, 4-2 and 4-3 in Hard difficulty or higher. (This means do all 3.)

Heavy Railgun - Load the Destroyer and fire a super fast cannonball that pierces through all targets in a linear fashion and explodes.
This skill is fine as well. It does a great amount of damage if used correctly, either with lined opponents or closely grouped mobs, as this skill does stacked damage (similar to a group of enemies afflicted with Aisha's Death Field or enemies attacked by Raven's Hypersonic Stab). Optional to max, though Comet Crasher is a better skill.
***Currently, Heavy Railgun is a prerequisite for Shooting Star. In future patches, this prerequisite may be changed. If not, then this skill is a need if the prerequisite for Bullet Blitz is Shooting Star.
*Skill Note: Auto-Induction(?) - Reduce the cannonball speed by 33%, and the explosion will launch the targets upwards. -Obtained from Cash Shop.
The skill note reduces the range slightly (due to speed decrease) and launch all targets within the explosion upwards. This makes Heavy Railgun lean toward some combo purpose. I don't know if it's possible to use a Silver Shooter attack like Head Shot or what after the target is in the air. I don't know if you'll be quick enough to even hit. Regardless, why bother comboing after Heavy Railgun? The best use for it is in dungeons.
PvE: 0/5 or 5/5
PvP: 0/5 or 5/5
Hybrid: 0/5 or 5/5




(60) Row 13:


Tussle Technique - Improve your overall skill in handling different weapons at the same time.
This passive is a must. It decreases your knockdown rate and increase attack speed! Ever notice how attack speed is so important? It is. Though, at Lv5, you only increase it by 3%, but that's still a lot and worth it. Hey, you might even get 23% attack speed if all your gear adds up to 20%. Anyways, this is a must max passive, not only for its usefulness, but as a prerequisite for a future Deadly Chaser passive.
PvE: 5/5
PvP: 5/5
Hybrid: 5/5




(65) Row 14:


Sharpshooter Syndrome (LOCKED) - Point the Silver Shooter up in the air and fires, releasing an aura of silver energy that encompasses a certain radius. Grant increased accuracy and critical hit chances to yourself and all party members in range.
This skill, overall, provides a 20% boost in your hit chances at Lv5. If you're a critical lover, you might want this skill. And if you think you're low on accuracy, you may also want this skill. This will greatly help party members in dungeons, and perhaps in team PvP. In terms of damage, a Lv5 SS deals 426% per hit up to 4 hits, depending on how close you are to a monster. This would be a little less than Elsword's Armageddon Blade strike, however it does nice, quick damage while giving you (and party members) a buff. Only take if you really want this skill for its critical chance (and accuracy) increase.
PvE: 0/5 or 5/5
PvP: 0/5 or 5/5
Hybrid: 0/5 or 5/5

**To unlock Sharpshooter Syndrome, you must do the High Branch skill quest.

Quest 1: Buy the High Quality scroll (It costs 140k ED from Camilla, aka the PVP girl)

Quest 2: Collect 50 emblems from enemies in 4-3.

Quest 3: Collect 2 generators (red) and 2 generators (blue) from each boss in 4-4. If they respawn, they will not drop the items. You must repeat the dungeon.

Quest 4: Collect 3 drops from 4-3 boss.

Quest 5: Clear 4-4 in 8 mins, Clear 3x-4 in 8 mins, and Clear 3x-3 in 9 mins.

Shooting Star - Launch 12 guided missiles from your cannon that explode upon impact.
A nice 300 MP skill that is only best used for room-clearing. All missiles randomly target a monster within the map, like an Aisha's Magic Missile, hitting them for 34% physical damage on hit, the explosion dealing 385% magic damage at Lv5. It may seem all that great, but even Comet Crasher can surpass this skill's damage. The only reason you must max this skill so that you can get the future Bullet Blitz skill.
PvE: 5/5
PvP: 5/5
Hybrid: 5/5

That's all of the skills the Shooting Guardian has access to. After reaching Level 35, you can begin your second job advancement, to become the agile Deadly Chaser.

1. Speak with Lento in Feita.
2. Eliminate 20 Mana Eaters in the Underground Chapel on Very Hard mode.
3. Defeat 12 Plant Overlords in the Underground Garden on Hard mode or higher.
4. Speak with Hanna, the blacksmith, in Velder
5. Collect 10 drops from the Dark Elves, 10 drops from the Blood Eaters, and 10 drops from any Arc Glitters in Velder. (Hope Bridge Very Hard is recommended.)


After finishing the long quest, you are now the Deadly Chaser, the tracker of death!
