Thread: Shadehunter Archery Guide

High-song ebonsong is usually some kind of debuff hybrid where you remove their defense and keep them perma-slowed with quickstep/(gale) charged bolt. With Ebonsong you have no hard CCs at all except Silence*, but just for mages.

    Occult archer doesn't share those weaknesses.
    You can pop someone out of stealth with Crows from so far away (30m) and pre-emptively stun them instantly with blazing arrow.
    You have hard CC impale with cursed seed>charged bolt, and if you use normal Hell Spear, you can punish someone who thinks they can snare>backstab you.

    If anything, Shadehunter trades the ability to kite with pure move speed (> ebonsong style) for the ability to kite via CC interrupt (which can easily turn into an offensive lockdown).
    Mist hell spear can hit'em while facing away from them too (most magic skills actually.. for some dumb reason. haha)! I have lived(and died by the same situation lol) SO MANY times by getting that off while theyre behind me, then proceeding to crows them and watch 80% of their combo (hopefully the cc portion xD) miss, while im stuck in cc's, but Normal Hell spear is definitely great for soundwave attempts + previously mentioned scenario too.

    Since i see no description on shadowsmite you should really try to replace it with Lightning overwhelm it's another nice surviving skill.

    It's not a core part of the class, and more up to player preference. I like that shadowsmite gives me another form of control, in possibly disarming melee opponents, whereas lightning overwhelm often only gets u caught, since it's bounce animation can be interrupted by hard cc. Both are pretty situational imo.

    A solid option, but it was nerfed sometime ago, so it's not as powerful as it was, and you could still be chain cc'd to death by 3-second knockdowns and stuns, instead of going for the immediate burst, if they react to that situation calmly, especially if DWing.

    Trickster banshee would be overall better for that outplay in my imo, BUT I am tempted to give that skill another try, cuz I just thought of an offensive rotation for it thanks to you. Lol
