HM Archer build

lvl 51 HM archer needs help with build
Hello, I'm a lvl 51 HM archer and i need some help on a build to help me kill in Pando. I got a restat and have about 350 stat points to use and gear is currently in progress and have enough money for 5's and duals in Dragon Gear. How much Luc/Dex and Str would be good for Pando killing. Any help is appreciated. Smile

The average 7luc 2dex build is good here, but I suggest linking in some dex and str. Pando mobs have a lot of dex and back in my archer days I kept going hit, miss, miss, hit, miss. About 250 dex is good, and the average 5 x 51 = 255 luc is good as well. (5 for 5luc per level, 51 for the level you're at).
Be sure to link str in though, my crits on Pando mobs ranged from 100 to about 1000 when my gear was linked with luc, which is a bit random. After linking about 100~ str in and getting the right ele, crits went to 500 to 1200~, much better.

Retired.

i owned pando with

STR : 900+
DEX : 450
LUC : 600

that's overkill i know, but i was in goddess dragon set for PvP. you can try the next

STR : 600+
DEX : 400 ( or 350 )
LUC : 550 ( or 500 )

Just link first and when done, use your restat stone to meet your targets. There is no need to have a fixed value though. assume that you have 382 DEX, then it's good enough. Same for LUC.
Try to reach close to 600 STR first before looking to another stats.

I'd have to disagree a little with Xybolt here.
I'd say hit your luck/dex targets before concentrating on strength.

If you don't have enough dex then you will miss too often - and missing your target is an enormous amount of damage lost.
If you don't have enough luck then you won't crit often enough - again, a missed crit is an enormous amount of damage lost (not as much as a complete miss, but still significant). You need to be hitting 95% crit rate, and with Pando mobs having a certain amount of critical evasion that means at least 550 luck (I prefer 600 to be sure).


Other than that minor change, I think Xybolt's advice is very sound.

Ii did 350 dex, rest on luc and str, dex is good for tank and attack with poison!
