    Hi, nice guide. I am trying to figure out whats going on with my wild hunter. I haven’t put anything into my STR, and I am wearing no EQP that add’sstr but my STR says ” 41 (36+5) I don’t know where the 36 is coming from.

    Also, I have read that I should be training on toy Trojans, I can’t even hit one though. Help please!

    hi ayumi, good to write, I have xenon 180, and has a good team, but I delay in gaining levels and killing bosses, as gollux and magnus I approached, I thought about using a luminous because it is easy to gain levels with, and kill those bosses from afar, or also the phantom, which you recommend, my luminous and Phamtom are 120, or do you recommend me to stay with my xenon?, I need your ayuda.Thanks anticipated by help me. apology for my bad English. Apologies for repost

    @WildHeartless: Thanks for the notice! I have added into the skill build 🙂

  5. WildHeartless

    hey ayumi… you forgot to add crossbow booster into your skill build

  6. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi BBHunter! Avoidability and Evasion has their own formula to determined a player to receive or reject damage from enemy. RED patch should arrive probably around end of this year 2013, otherwise early next year 2014 if they have other patch to release before RED.

  7. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi BBHunter, I’m not sure those require skill book. Hunting Assistant Unit require Mastery Book since it has a max level of 30 similarly to Exploding Arrows. Extended Magazine should not require Mastery Book.

  8. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi hjx, I have updated this Wild Hunter Skill Build Guide to match with the details from GMS v142 Dawnviel Update.

  9. ShengHunter

    Ayumi, when youwant to post the revamp of Battle Mage?????

  10. hjx

    hi ayumi.i get two versions of the patch and one of it is yours.You might want to check whether yours is correct

  11. BBHunter

    Oh sorry one more thing, will Assistant Hunting Unit and Extend Magazine require skill books? Its a shame I took an age to max all my skills and exploding arrows will be removed :/

  12. BBHunter

    Hi Ayumilove! Back with some questions, this ‘20% additional avoidability chance’ from Call of the Wild, is like a 20% dodge chance like Evasion Boost / Flurry or Wild Instinct? Or is it 20% more avoidability stats? Also, do you have any rough ideas when red patch will arrive at MapleSEA? Thanks 🙂

  13. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi BBHunter, I have updated Swipe details with Post-RED 🙂

  14. BBHunter

    Hi again, i’ve personally searched for patch notes and found that swipe has actually been buffed overall. A piece of information you might want to add in the revamped skills section:

    Swipe: Attack Delay 1530ms->1020ms

    Also, in case anyone was wondering,

    Pre-RED Swipe: 300% / 1530ms = 196.08% DPS – with 5% damage absorbed
    Post-RED Swipe: 200% /1020ms = 196.08% DPS – with 10% damage absorbed
    (per hit on a single monster)

    Thanks again for the clarification!

    Hi lana, there are 3 4th job attacking skills : Wild Arrow Blast, Sonic Roar, Assistant Hunting Unit.

  16. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi BBHunter, there is no cooldown for Extend Magazine.
    As for Silent Rampage, its cooldown has been removed.
    Advanced Final Attack has its icon and skill effect renewed but no changes in stats.
    Sonic Roar (4th) has its skills delay approximately halved (that means you can cast it even faster) and damage is increased by +60% damage.

  17. lana

    is there any difference?how many 4th job attacking skill are there?

  18. BBHunter

    Hi Ayumilove, thanks for the excellent guide! just wondering if its fully completed yet as there are some areas that don’t seem updated.

    Does Extend Magazine (4th) and Silent Rampage (Level 150) have a cooldown?

    The revamped skills section shows: Beast Form (3rd) and Claw Cut (3rd) but are not shown in the skill build.

    And finally Advanced Final Attack (4th) and Sonic Roar (4th) are also stated under “revamped” but are not changed from pre-red patch stats.
