Update (2019): Before I start I want you to know that this guide is already outdated  because of tons of changes that happened but you can still use this as your guidance in developing a Full FAS Sniper build even though there has been a lot of changes. I quit the game for like 6 years and I just came back. I will only edit the guide to make it more comprehensible. I'm still learning the changes that occurred in the game while I was gone and after that I will include it here in this guide.

INTRODUCTION:

Sniper job is one of the most dangerous range killer class in the game. This class can spam so fast it can kill you in just 2 seconds if you are not paying attention.

As you may know the Sniper has two Offensive skills (besides the falcon, traps) Focus Arrow Strike and Double Strafe. In this guide we will talk more about the skill FOCUS ARROW STRIKE.

What is FOCUS ARROW STRIKE? FAS in short is a skill THAT CRITS! Meaning this skill will BYPASS ENEMIES DEFENCE! Take note though that doing critical is by chance right? Except if you fix your build and be like those Critical Type Assassin Cross that does critical all the time!

Note: To know if your FAS is not consistent try spamming your FAS to a player or monster and notice your damage if it's fluctuating then it's not consistent but if it's fix then its correct!

So we only have two questions here. How to make your FAS consistent and how to make it stronger?

1. HOW TO MAKE YOUR FOCUS ARROW STRIKE CONSISTENT (MEANING CONTINUOUSLY BYPASSING ENEMIES DEFENSE!)

It all depends on your Status Build (ALT+A) and your Equipments (Weapon, Cards etc)

First as the skill description about FAS says FAS is a skill the crits right? So it means this skill is already bypassing enemies defense so you don't need to use Incantation Samurai Card! What you only need to do is to edit your Status build! You need at least 100 or 101 above CRIT to continuosly bypass enemies def. (CRIT? Where can i see my Crit? Press Alt+A, right side of int, the Critical.)

Critical is connected to Luck Stats! 3 Luk is equal to 1 Crit!

Making my Crit 101 in the most conservative way
Of course I know what you're thinking "Man if I put tons of Luk it will break my build!" No man it won't. Take note Sniper has some buff skills right? First the Falcon Eyes will give you +10 Crit and your skill FAS per se already gives you +20 crit (meaning when you're using skill FAS it already adds automatically +20 crit). So with these two buff skill it already gives you +30 Crit. And if you're a rich person buy some Frey Gaunts or the new accessory that is slotted and put 2x Ifrit cards (1 Ifrit card gives you 25 crit  IF YOU'RE JOB LVL 255 because the card is based on your JOB LVL) that will give you +50 crit. So let's see the equation: Falcon Eyes 10 Crit + FAS 20 Crit+ 2x Ifrit cards 50 Crit= 80 CRIT! Nice right? Now just add few Luk to make your Critical 101!


NOTE: Before editing your status build  better equip your default gears first! I suggest you equip first the Ship Hat (Activity Item) because this hat increases your FAS damage drastically and also this item has different bonus compared to the Forsaken Valkyrie Helm or other 2 slotted Helm!

2. HOW TO MAKE YOUR FOCUS ARROW STRIKE STRONGER!

Well, again my friend as the skill description said FAS is a skill that crits right? So you need a CARD that makes crit stronger! So what's that card? PAPER CARD! (ama_dun03). And of course you need a good weapon at least Legendary Weapon (Quest item) but Valkyrie Weapon (Donation Item) is preferable obviously. You need 2x Paper card and put it in your weapon and ALSO 2x TURTLE GENERAL CARD(tur_dun04).

Note: It's not just the cards mention above that make your FAS stronger but also the OVERALL EQUIPMENT you are using! And some consumables also! (Aloe Vera and +10 Dex food!)
 
Note: My estimated damage in FAS to players if you're already FULL GEARED is 50-80K while NORMAL GEARED 30-40K but it always depends on the enemy you're dealing with. The FAS skill damage always varies depending on the equipment and buffs of the player you're encountering!

So without further ado the build below is my SUGGESTION BUILD for you if you are not yet sure in your build but remember that every decisions always depends on you! This is only a guidance not your permanent build! Make your own build after you master everything that was stated in this guide! Every player has their own unique build!

•Gears for MvPing•

Just change the cards of your weapon to 2x Abysmal Knight card/ 2x Paper and in armor use 2xGloom (Depends on what race is the mvp) or Tao+GR. And use an anti element arrow on what type of element the mvp (Look below the element weaknesses).

Gears, Cards, Monsters and Arrows to use in Gates of Hell and Aegirs Raid•

Snipers are the one and most effective class in the raid. So if you'll join in the raid i'll give you some tips before you enter the raid.

You only need to change the cards in your Boots. Remove the 2x FBH (Monster there are not Demi or Angel Type) and use 2x GEC for more HP and SP or Dwiz+GEC. And your headgear should be Ship hat (If you already have it) for more damage. And bring a bow with Coma because you can coma MVP inside the raid. Bring Cspeed and Maximize your capacity in bringing Seeds.

•GOH monsters and what arrow to use (Forgot what wave this monsters will appear)•

•Gallion [use Water Arrow]
•Necromancer [use Imma Arrow]
•Evil Druid [use Imma Arrow]
•Majorous [use Water Arrow]
•Phendark [use Wind Arrow]
•Injustice [use Imma Arrow]
•Lord of Death (A MVP monster so better use a coma bow and Imma Arrow)
•Mistress of Shelter [use Shadow Arrow]
•Baroness of Retribution [use Holy Arrow]
•Wraith Dead [use Imma Arrow]
•Wraith [use Holy Arrow]
•Hodremlin [use Imma Arrow]
•Gremlin [use Holy Arrow]
•Banshee [use Earth Arrow]
•Nightmare [use Water Arrow]
•Garm (A MVP monster so better use a coma bow and Imma Arrow)
•Skogul (Use Earth Arrow)
•Frus [use Water Arrow]
•Chimera (A MVP monster so better use a coma bow and Fire Arrow)
•Kades (A MVP monster so better use a coma bow and Imma Arrow)

(I'm not sure if this is all the mobs in GOH)

•Aegirs Raid monsters and what arrow to use•

•1st Wave
Seaweed/Sropho/Red Euruma [This 3 mobs are Ghost so just use Imma Arrow in this wave]

•2nd Wave
Coelacanth [use Imma Arrow]
Mutant Coelacanth [use Water Arrow]

•3rd Wave
King Dramoh [use Imma Arrow]
Kraken Leg [use Earth Arrow]

•4th Wave

Note: There are new raids like Blackwitch etc. I haven't tried those yet so I didn't put any tips for these kind of raids.
 

ADVICE/TIPS

Note: Everything listed here are based on my experiences no need to follow if you have your own style!

1. Don't use ROP. ROP is useless, it will just add 200 damage in your fas. Better use Emp or Skull aura. But if you want the style of the ROP it's fine. "Tested" or test it by yourself.

2. Always use TRAPS. Ankle Snare and Skid Trap.

3. Sniper fights in long range not in close combat. Better avoid closing too much in your opponent. I advice you to buy Assassin Card. Always use cloak.

4. Bring a knife or main gauche with you with strip cards in it (Metaling, Dragoon Warlord, Valkyrie Randgris, Maero). I always use this for emergency.

5. Remove your auto attack. How? Type /nc and remove the check of your attack in Alt+O. Why should i not use auto attack? I'm used to it. Because it's hassle when spamming FAS. You might accidentally double click your opponent that will stop your spam.

6. Don't use Falcon. Why?! His my FRIEND!. Same in no.5. Falcon will auto blitz so it will auto attack and your spam in FAS will be affected.

7. Don't always depend on spamming FAS on your opponent. Try using Arrow Repel to throw away your enemy away from you or  use Arrow Shower to pop out those who are hiding. By the way Improve Concentration has a effect that could be able to detect enemy that is hiding "near you".


8. How can i use ship hat that i don't get stoned? Use evil druid card (Remember you can't make 2 elements in your armor. It doesn't stack. So GR+Evil Druid doesn't stack. Better use Tao+Evil druid or other cards. But beware in champs you'll be one hit by asura. And neutral elements skill hurts alot to you if you use this element so be careful.

9.Don't just use 3 arrows better bring extra like fire,water or wind.

10. You're running or chasing on an enemy? Try doing this. Use skid trap in front/back/sides or anywhere but must be near you and step on it. The effect is like you used snap but you need to know how to use it. Step on the arrow ''<'' or the less than to move forward. If you step in a wrong side of the trap it will throw you slant, like backslide or anywhere. Or just use common sense. Where the arrow point that's where you go.

11. Can't kill your enemy? Full Reducts player killing/trolling you? Then carry an extra bow [L.bow is good] and put 3x Lord of Dead Card and Valkryie Randgris Card on it and hit your enemy and wait until he dies with your coma.

ADVICE/TIPS IN DUELING

Note: Everything listed here are based on my experienced dueling before when I was active so it is not necessary to follow them if you have your own style! 

Dueling a SniperDifficulty: Medium

Most sniper used ship hat right? And there damage is high. So how to make that char don't use ship hat? You need switches. First you need to stone him using puppetring card. Then of course he will switch in his FSOLD. So his damage is now low. If he doesn't have FSOLD his dead. Don't just Spam FAS to him and wait who runs out of seeds. This fight is so common and BORING. You should at least make a technique like cloaking and repelling him or stripping or whatever. Just don't spam FAS only.

•Dueling an Assassin Cross (Crit Type)• Difficulty: Medium

In my own experience in dueling a crit type sinx i really don't have a problem on them. But i notice other snipers always die on them when the sinx already got them. So my tips for you guys when dueling a sinx is this. Crit type sinx need to approach you to kill you right? So the best counter attack for them is using a knife/dagger with a VR card (dispel effect. See my no.4 advice/tips above for more info) so that if they melee attack you they'll be dispelled and they need to recast their buffs or use converters. That's the time for you to make a move.

•Dueling an Assassin Cross (Sonic blow type)• Difficulty: Medium

SB Sinx type are one of the most dangerous opponent you will encounter. My advice for you is always use cloaking and cspeed and avoid them on getting near you. Remember if they got near you you're dead. Expect that their always in cloak so you should be fast on uncloaking them and spamming FAS/DS on them. They have no shield so your damage will be high on them. And use ankle snare or skid trap.

•Dueling a Gunslinger• Difficulty: Easy

GS are very easy to defeat ''for me''. Use angeling card in your armor with tao card to reduce their damage (depends on what element they use). If they desperado you just repel them. If they use rapid shower just spam your FAS to them. If they use RSX use skid trap or cspeed to avoid them when they'll use desperado. GS run out seeds faster.

•Dueling a Professor• Difficulty: Easy

This class is dangerous if you're not fast on switching shields. My only advice is use GTB and spam your FAS/DS. Beware other prof uses Stave crasher if you use gtb and they'll use blinding mist to decrease or make miss of your damage.

•Dueling a Lord Knight• Difficulty: Hard

LK has a huge amount of HP you must always expect that. They have some buffs that will make you miss. They got melee, range skill and have debuff skill too. They are a little hard opponent. My tips for you is always bring your dispel knife and your coma bow. Surround yourself a ankle snare/skid trap. Always cloak and be wise. If they got near use your knife if they're really hard to beat for you then use your coma bow. If they notice your using a coma bow they'll switch to gtb then that's the time for you to spam FAS to own him.

•Dueling a Biochemist• Difficulty: Medium

Not that hard opponent. Use this anti-bio set (2xDev,Gtb,RSX[if you don't have FCP]) and Spam FAS/DS to him. Remember they can carry extra seeds in their cart and they can FCP themselves so stripping is useless to them. Most bio's use cloaking so you need to bring a maya P helm to see them. Their weapon has a coma effect so be aware. Dispel knife is not that effective to them. So be wise on dueling a biochemist.

•Dueling a Champion• Difficulty: Hard

Okay this class is hard to duel. Champ has an anti-range (pneuma) and anti-melee (Root). So it's hard for you to FAS him or use a knife on him and they have Ruwach so hiding is useless and they got Snap to chase you. This is very a hard class to duel (depends on what kind of player you dueling). You need to be wise. What i advice you to do is make a distance to him. Always run if he snap on you. When you spam FAS on him surely he will use pneuma. If you're fast enough to do the skid trap + arrow shower then do it. But if not try getting near on him a little not too close like a gap to his asura and he will asura you. Once his out of his pneuma and his gonna asura you use Arrow Repel fast then spam FAS to him. If he use pneuma again use cloaking then he will use Ruwach and asura or tss you. If he uncloak you he can't asura you because asura has a delay if he uses snap. After he snap and uncloak you Spam FAS to him and quickly repel him. Always remember don't let him close to you. Traps are kinda useless because he'll just snap and the traps will be automatically be destroyed but i think Skid trap will works. Just be wise on your movements and always make a distance on a champ. Don't use Ship Hat because he will definitely gonna use stone armor to stone you.

•Dueling a Clown/Gypsy• Difficulty: Medium

Clown is a little annoying when dueling on them. They can coma you, stone you and decrease your damage using Tarot Card of Fate skill. My advice to you is always make ready of your gtb. If he can't kill you on his Arrow vulcan he'll gonna use Tarot. So if he uses Tarot switch fast on gtb so you won't get coma and while his spamming tarot on you spam your FAS on him. Always cloak so he can't spam his AV on you. If he gets near and he uncloak you use Arrow repel and Spam FAS. If his hard to kill use your coma bow or use your knife.

•Dueling a Whitesmith• Difficulty: Medium

This class has a very fast spam, has anti-range (Pneuma), can break an armor and has range skill too. My advice for you when dealing with a Whitesmith is like the same in dealing on a Champion Class but not that hard opponent (Read my advice for Champ). Remember he needs to use a Elemental Converters to make his damage decent. So if he gets near to you switch fast in your knife and dispel him. Once his been dispel Spam your FAS and Repel him. Just don't make him get near to you because he can kill you very fast with his spam of Cart Termination. Traps and Cloaking are useful. Use your skills wisely.

•Dueling a Stalker (Dex type)• Difficulty: Easy

Stalkers are not that hard opponent especially those dex type. Your only problem with them is their skill Full Strip. You need to defeat them before your Full Chemical Protection runs or else you'll be stripped and die. But in case you run out of FCP your only choice is to repel him and avoid getting near him. Traps is kinda useless because he can remove traps. And stalker can copy a skill. If you're dealing with a stalker that has a skill of Flipping Tatami (Anti-Range) use your knife and dispel him then Spam your FAS so he will copy your FAS skill and his flip tatami skill will be removed. When your dealing with a magic user stalker type just use GTB and kill him ASAP to avoid getting strip.

•Dueling a Stalker (Reduct type)• Difficulty: Easy

This type of a stalker is an annoying one. You got low damage because of their reduct equipment, always normal attack you with a Triple attack and coma you using a coma bow. My advice to you is avoid getting coma. Use a gtb and most reduct stalker equipment has no anti freeze. So use a bow with a stormy knight card and lod. And normal attack him till he dies to your coma. If he uses gtb to avoid getting coma then that's the time you Spam FAS to him.

•Dueling a Paladin (Tanker type)• Difficulty: Hard

This class is one of the most annoying class you'll encounter. To be honest i just ignore them because most pally's are just tanker anyway but if there's no choice then you need to fight him. Pally's have a skill called Defending aura that has a reduct for range attacks/skills and the Guard skill that blocks incoming physical damage. What you must do is try to dispel him by using a knife. Once he got dispelled spam FAS to him. The strategy here is to annoy him and wait for him to use gtb. Once he uses gtb that's the time you spam your FAS to him. You can use your coma bow if no choice. Stripping him is a little useless because he can use Battle Chant to remove the strip effect.

•Dueling a Paladin (Grand Cross Type)• Difficulty: Medium

This type of paladin is not that hard to duel. They got low hp compare of Tank Paladin. Just repel him if he gets near you or just use gtb or angeling to counter his GC. You can use your dispel to him because most GC type paladin uses MB to increase their damage. Use Skid trap instead of Ankle Snare because they'll use magnum break if they got caught in AS Trap to break the trap.

•Dueling a High Wizard• Difficulty: Easy

Not hard to fight with. Use GTB and spam your skills to him. If his in high reduct use a bow with SK, LOD card or use coma bow. Beware of HW that's using Stave with thana, it hurts if you don't have skolls on.

•Dueling a Super Novice• Difficulty: Medium

Most SN are magic type but there are others who are in hybrid type (Magic+Mammonite) and they have high HP. Use GTB to counter his magic and if he'll Mammo you use Arrow Repel or Traps. He will try to strip you or coma you too so beware. Always be wise.

•Dueling a Ninja• Difficulty: Hard

This class is one of the most hardest opponent you'll faced. You can't easily kill him because he has anti range (Flip Tatami) and you can't melee him too (Cicada --). So what i need you to do is be a ninja too. What i mean is always hide. Don't show yourself to him. If he uncloaks you you counter him. Try to corner him into the wall but it's gonna be hard because he can leap. You need timing here, if you saw him walks his skill Flip tatami will be gone so that's the time you spam FAS to him. Overall use all your technique to beat this class.

•Dueling Star Gladiator and Soul Linker• Difficulty: Easy

This two class is very rare to see in PvP field but if you ever encounter them well all i can say is they're very easy. Most Star Gladiator uses thana so be careful, his Flying Kick really hurts. Just use your knife with dispel and dispel him to remove his buffs then spam your FAS to him. If he gets near use arrow repel. Traps are uselss because he can get near to you using flying kick.

Soul Linker always leap around. It's hard to point click at them but if you got them they're dead. They got very low HP.+ But you need to kill them twice though because he has auto resu. Use GTB because they're magic users.

• Becoming a PRO will take some time. Always practice and never get bored of your class. Avoid switching class, you need to stick in one at first. Always remember never underestimate your opponent•

-Questions-

•Is it really necessary to make your FAS crit stable? 

Well it depends actually to you. To me I like my FAS to be stable but others doesn't want for the reason of saving stats etc. It all depends to you remember that this is only a guide!


Should I learn Battlemode?

Yes. Learning the battlemode keys is a must. You need this for faster switching items and using other skill (ex. Traps).

What's more better FAS or DS?

Both actually! Others use FAS for multiple enemies. DS for 1 vs 1 but it all depends on you.

•Does ping affect my spam?•

Yes that's what i think. Other players who are near to the server can spam FAS more faster than the others. And others who are far away in the server spam slower than the others.

Hardest opponent for sniper?

EVERY CLASS DEPENDS ON WHO YOU ARE DEALING WITH!

What are the weakness of fire, ghost, shadow element etc?•

Fire is weak to Water.
Water is weak to Wind.
Wind is weak to Earth.
Earth is weak to Fire.
Holy is weak to Shadow.
Shadow is weak to Holy.
Undead is weak to Holy and Fire (use Holy if you have the option).
Ghost is weak to Ghost, but don't use Neutral (Void = non-elemental stuff).
Neutral isn't weak to anything, but don't use Ghost.

•What's more better Sniper Cursed ring or Sniper Blessed ring?•

There have been a debate on which of this two rings are the best. Others said Cursed is more better. Others said Blessed is more better than Cursed and others said Cursed is just for FAS and Blessed is just for DS. Well if you ask me to be honest i didn't try using blessed yet but for me this two rings are good it really just depends on your test of damage or maybe the design of the ring or if you're rich then just buy them bought. But remember equipment is not really important. It's how you play your character. If you are fully geared but not good on using your character then it's useless.

Can i use this build in my stalker?

Yes. If you're a FAS type. But if i were you i'll just go sniper and go full fas.

•How to counter Sniper?•

By changing the element of your armor. Or try my Full Range Reducts. It's really effective on countering a sniper.

•Is Sniper effective in WoE?•

Yes they are. They are useful on defending castle or holding the enemies to get near the emp by using ankle snare traps. The only disadvantage of sniper in woe is that you can't see your damage inside the castle. So you won't know if your foe has different element or armor then you're trying to kill them but you notice that it's taking so long to kill them.

•Is Sniper effective in MvP hunting?•

Yes. They can kill mvp fast. And this class is one of the most effective in killing Thanatos.

•I'm still a starter. Should i buy Sniper Soaring Bird first?•

No, save your tokens first and buy the legendary version of sniper SB which is L.bow. L.bow and Sniper SB has only a little difference.

Conclusion:

Update Sept 21, 2019: I edited few in my guide to make it more comprehensible but still there has been a lot of changes in the game and I didn't yet included it here because I still didn't cope up with such changes. If I got time again I will update this guide. I hope this guide helps everyone especially the newbies. I want you to know that my guide is not perfect. There are players there that has different build but remember this is only a guide for you! Gives a thumbs up to my guide and also don't forget to vote in my Poll if this guide helps you so that players will know that this guide is good for them! Thank you!

Update January 17, 2020: Since I've been playing the game for a while now again I've cope up with the changes so I updated and made 3 parts of equipments of Sniper, Basic, Semi and End Gears. I will still update this guide in the future especially the TIPS in pvping since apparently the game style has been change over the years.

I will be the one to tell you though, the only ones that didn't know how FAS works are probably the newer guys. It is in no way secret if you read iRO wiki page about how the skill works. If I remember correctly, it was David(Skyfall) who told me about the different builds for sniper, and a sniper I knew in the old days has been using FAS build back in 2009. The reason it was more prominent today is because of the +40dex with a slot accessory, something we didn't have before which is why FAS is not good then.

In fact, you just really have to read how the skill works in the iRO wiki. If you played RO for a very long time, it wouldn't take too long to know what cards you need. Here's the funny part too, if you have a fully geared CRIT SinX, then you actually have the cards needed for the FAS build, you just need freyrs instead of lokis.

I will be the one to tell you though, the only ones that didn't know how FAS works are probably the newer guys. It is in no way secret if you read iRO wiki page about how the skill works. If I remember correctly, it was David(Skyfall) who told me about the different builds for sniper, and a sniper I knew in the old days has been using FAS build back in 2009. The reason it was more prominent today is because of the +40dex with a slot accessory, something we didn't have before which is why FAS is not good then.

After i post the guide many players pm me not to post it. I know many geared sniper doesn't know it. And after that i don't know if i should post it or not. If i receive many +1 i'll post it.

That is kinda sad then, and here we are trying to stop people being elitist. I never knew people were that selfish lol. But I commend you for trying to post the build for it.

I already edited my post and gave really big hints. I don't really care if you post the guide or not, but if people ask me in game, I won't hesitate to explain it well.

I'll add one small thing then. FAS is a skill that "crits". It may sound weird but that is just the way it is. Which is why if your enemy have High LUK(NOT CRIT RATE), you might notice your damage becoming low. Which is also one of the reason that some veterans(they quit now) only uses one ifrit card, for the reason to be able to get a little more luk.

The formula for FAS bypassing defense and flee is [ crit rate+20) - {enemy's luk/5)]%. so if enemy have around 100 luk, that would make you bypass defense by around 81%(if you go 101 crit rate).

Also, the skill ignores any other card that gives crit rate if the crit rate given is not added to your status window(alt+a)

^ he just mentioned evil druid card on armor. of course you switch around armors if the enemy is near. I for one would just use fhelm that had kiel + fsoldier in it if i have to fight a champ.

bt how to counter champ with pupetring then??..im sure ur FAS wil be slowed coz fsolder is needed....


Switch to fsold and don't use ship hat when dealing with champ because most champ use puppetring to stone and 1 hit you. Better have switches that has fsold. Edited by El7

It is exactly the one we call crit build FAS. I actually thought it is pretty common myself, never knew people call it a secret one nowadays.

Well, David did say crit build fas have some flaws in it(like you have to use ifrit cards for it, instead of you having the auto pneuma cards and stuff). But it does really good damage.

xD this is my sniper build xD i experimented lots on my sniper once i got my kiels xD and i did EXACTLY like you had xD ahuehuehuehue xD but my crit was exactly 100 xD ohh xD and my old friend 9shadow7 told me that falcons suck when u crit build xD

ohh and another input about the build... if you have l.wep/SB along with kingset, you wont have to put agi because having enough dex will make ur aspd 195

also, explanation, the paper card increases dmg every crit dmg u have, therefore anyone can go crit build (except maybe for Magic Attackers :P)

and also, correct me if I'm wrong, CRIT is almost like inca, it ignores def... right?? xD i'm not really sure, but still, that's why i dont have inca on xD
