squig herder template (reloaded)

Why did I change my Squig Herder template?

I was not feeling the original template whatsoever. While it does have amazing survival skills, the cost of staying alive was giving up DPS. While I rarely died, I was not really killing anything. Although I have only played the new template for two levels, there is a huge difference. To keep me alive I play my Squig Herder very much like a Sorc, staying in the back and just DPS dumping. Something that I am finding to be extremely desirable is the Morale level 2 skill that gives you 100% extra damage for 10 seconds. Make sure you have enough AP and then pop this followed by Lots Of Arrows, kicks butt every time :)

Original template is here

Since this is going to be a PvP build, your three top stats will be:

  • Ballistic Skill = adds to ranged DPS

  • Wounds = adds to hit points

  • Initiative = adds to chance to dodge ranged, detect stealth, and lowers the chance that you are critically hit

The 25 points will be placed as follows: (There will be a few extra points gained in RvR rewards, however we will not use them here)

15 in "Big Shootin"
Buy the following skills in the Big Shootin tree for one point each:
  • Aimin Quickly

  • I Feelz Your Pain

  • Poison Arrer

  • Clever Shootin'

  • Finish 'em Off

  • Lots of Shootin'

Skills in the tree you do not buy: "Shrapnel Arrer"

The last 4 points will be put in the "Quick Shootin" tree. Any additional points should also be placed in "Quick Shootin", there is no reason to buy the bottom or second to the bottom skill in the tree.

80 RvR points to be placed in:

  • Marksmen level 1 = 1 point

  • Marksmen level 2 = 3 points

  • Marksmen level 3 = 6 points

  • Marksmen level 4 = 10 points

  • Marksmen level 5 = 14 points

  • Impetus level 1 = 1 point

  • Impetus level 2 = 3 points

  • Impetus level 3 = 6 points

  • Sharp Shooter level 1 = 2 points

  • Sharp Shooter level 2 = 4 points

  • Sure Shot level 1 = 5 points

  • Sure Shot level 2 = 10 points

  • Sure Shot level 3 = 15 points

The purpose of this build is to put out massive ranged single target damage, removing primary targets within seconds.

Here are the planned active morale skills:

  • Level 1 = Point Blank

  • Level 2 = Unshakable Focus

  • Level 3 = Explosive Shots

  • Level 4 = Lots of Shootin'

Slotted Tactics can be changed "on the fly", as long as you are not in combat. Here is my choice for a "PvP fight":

  • Clever Recovery

  • I Feelz Your Pain

  • Clever Shootin'

  • Aimin Quickly

Build Strength:

Best single target damage possible, amazing AP regen skills.

The ONLY thing that limits the amount of DPS that you put out is AP, with this build that should not be a problem at all. With Clever Recovery if any of your attacks get dodged you will receive 75 AP. I Feelz Your Pain gives you 50 AP anytime you crit with a Big Shootin ability,(This is the only tree you will be using in PvP) this is coupled with the renown abilities(Sure Shot) that gives you a hard +12% chance to crit. With Lots O' Arrers(Fires many arrows in succession) your chance to proc a crit every few seconds is greatly enhanced. With Clever Shootin' your Big Shootin skills costs 35% less AP. Although this may seem like a little overkill with AP gain, it truly is not, I can dump my whole AP bar with 10 to 15 seconds.

Build Weakness:

You do not have as much survivability as a Quick Shootin build.
