Best Skills Combinations for Crossbow and Longbow DPS Build TL

Combining your chosen skills is the best way to get the most out of their effects and maximize your potential. There are a few great Skills Combinations you can use, in order to deal massive damage and increase your DPS. Some of the Best Skills Combos for the Crossbow and Longbow DPS Build in Throne and Liberty are:

  • Nimble Leap+Mortal Mark+Quick Fire. Nimble Leap to activate Nature’s Power and boost you damage, Mortal Mark to weaken your target and Quick Fire to deal even more damage to Weakened enemies. You can further expand this combo into Nimble Leap+Mortal Mark+Quick Fire+Strafing/Zephyr’s Nock.
  • (Nimble Leap+)Thorn Gale+Mortal Mark+Quick Fire. You can start this combo with Nimble Leap if it is ready to boost your damage, then Thorn Gale to shoot double projectiles and basically double your DPS. Nimble Leap+Thorn Gale works well with Zephyr’s Nock and Epic Strafing(fires three times) as well!
  • (Nimble Leap+)Thorn Gale+Merciless Barrage. This combo deals massive damage thanks to the multiple attacks of Merciless Barrage. Be careful when to use it though. Barrage fires in a straight line and can hit other targets. Great against stationary enemies with clear Line of Sight. You can again start the combo with Nimble Leap for a bigger boost to damage.
  • Nimble Leap+Mortal Mark+Wind Snatcher+Quick Fire+Zephyr’s Nock/Strafing. The Ultimate Mobile Combo! Weaken and slow down enemies, controlling the distance. Deal massive damage with Quick Fire and Zephyr’s Nock/Strafing.

As you can see using Nimble Leap to trigger Nature’s Power is an important part of the Build that will help you deal massive damage! These are of course only a few powerful combos you can use with the Build. You can mix and match the above skills in any way you like, as long as they deal massive Burst Damage.

How to Play Crossbow and Longbow DPS Build – Gameplay Tips

This Crossbow and Longbow DPS Build, relies on Mobility and high Burst Damage! Use your Mobility Skill, Nimble Leap as often as possible to trigger Nature’s Power Passive and further Boost your Damage! Slow down your enemy with Wind Snatcher, debuff with Mortal Mark and deal damage with Quick Fire, Strafing, Merciless Barrage and Zephyr’s Nock.

Decisive Sniping deals massive damage from distance but will slow down your rotation and play style. This is why it is better to use it against stationary enemies, like Bosses, to boost your Burst Damage! Restore Mana with Mana Exchange and boost Health and Mana Regen with Nature’s Blessing. Always apply Deadly Marker to enemies in order to reduce Skill Cooldown for you and your entire group.

Crossbow and Longbow DPS Build Pros and Cons Throne and Liberty

This is a great Build if you enjoy fast paced combat and high mobility. You can slow down enemies, debuff them and move around while attacking with your rapid-fire Crossbow abilities! There is no need to stand still to maximize your damage. You can instead move around, kite your targets and control the field. The Build consumes Mana like crazy however. You will have to keep an eye on your resources and restore often with potions or skills. Additionally you will stay relatively close to your target which might expose you to danger.
