Best Skills Combinations for Longbow and Dagger 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 Longbow and Dagger DPS Build in Throne and Liberty are:

  • Inject Venom+Ensnaring Arrow+Decisive Sniping. Poison and Bind your enemy so you can deal massive damage with three Decisive Sniping casts. Before upgrading the skill to Epic you can add Zephyr’s Nock and Strafing to the mix.
  • Inject Venom+Ensnaring Arrow+Zephyr’s Nock. Use Zephyr’s Nock on Bound enemies to boost your damage. Poison deals additional damage to them.
  • Inject Venom+Ensnaring Arrow+Strafing. Epic Strafing can also fire three times, so using it after Inject Venom and Ensnaring Arrow, allows you to deal massive damage without the enemy reacting.
  • Inject Venom+Ensnaring Arrow+Brutal Arrow. Poison and Bind your enemy, then deal massive AOE damage with Brutal Arrow. Brutal Arrow is easy to miss so make sure you have immobilized your target first! You can add Strafing and Zephyr’s Nock to this combo if you wish.

Inject Venom is the core of the Build! Use it to enhance your attacks with Poison and deal massive damage to enemies. You do not have to start your combos with Inject Venom. It is possible to first fire Ensnaring Arrow to immobilize your enemies, then cast Inject Venom to add Poison to your following attacks. These are 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 Longbow and Dagger DPS Build – Gameplay Tips

This is a slow paced DPS Build, that relies on massive damage from range. The Longbow attack skills can deal massive burst damage when you are as far as possible, thanks to the Rapidfire Stance Passive ability. Combining this with extra damage to Bound targets, thanks to the Steady Aim Passive but also the Poison effect from Daggers can help you reach some crazy damage numbers. Obviously the Build is not very mobile. You want to stay still in order to maximize your potential.

Dagger attack skills like Throwing Knife and Umbral Spirit, can help you slow down targets and deal damage to enemies nearby. Shadow Strike is an excellent mobility skill that can teleport you to your target’s location, immobilize and debuff them, allowing you to escape and crowd control more efficiently. Camouflage Cloak is your stealth ability, that you can use to hide and break aggro from enemies. Always apply Deadly Marker to enemies in order to reduce Skill Cooldown for you and your entire group. Finally use Nature’s Blessing to heal but also restore Mana!
