Dragon Nest Sniper

Sniper, the 2nd class advancement of pAtk (physical) based bowmasters, is by far the one with the longest attack range in the whole of Dragon Nest. (Note: Longbow type Snipers) Snipers pump up it's critical stat, thereby making it one of the best DPS class. Being a long-range DPS, snipers provide huge damage and utmost offensive support both in PvP and PvE.

Take note that because of the dual-ultimate system, mAtk (magic) based snipers exist. You might find them still rare at the moment because magic based BMs generally prefer artillery's magical breeze rather than sniper's physical skills.

Sniper Skills

Saleana's skills are entirely offensive, beefing up the damage with burning hand and fireball EX. Burning hand can go along with a critical, hence this is why most saleanas pump their crits and hellfire skill. (Passive skill that increase critical rate of fire skills in the elemental lord skill tree.)

Critical Break

Skill Type: Passive

- Add a chance to deal additional damage on critical hits.

10% chance for an additional 20% damage on critical hits.

Ambush Point

Skill Type: Active

- Summon a flower 6 meters ahead, that attracts enemies to it for 8 seconds, after which it explodes and deals significant damage.

  • Physical Damage 327% + 3536
  • Duration: 15 secs

Charge Shot EX

Skill Type: Passive

- Enhance charge shot by increasing AoE by 30% as well as additional damage.

+30% damage

Sniper Pros and Cons

Like any range class in other MMORPGs, snipers are almost always vulnerable up close. Along with it however are advantages that snipers boast of. A list of some important pros and cons of snipers are as follows:


  • Fully equipped snipers have the highest critical damage (because of critical break) in the game. Even if it's just a 10% chance, it procures more often than you think.
  • Snipers (Longbow) have the longest attack range. (Artillery are often crossbow type which have a significantly shorter range).
  • Bowmaster (both sniper and artillery) skills have high super armor destruction bonus.


  • Ambush point is not very useful in PvP.
  • Archers as it is are very fragile, having a low base HP pool and low super armor bonus of skills.

Sniper Builds

Snipers also vary in build, from a pure Final Damage or DPS type to a PvP supportive build. Generally though, hybrid types are the more effective because of its versatility and the ability to adapt to different situations.

Here's a list of some useful guides for a Sniper:

Due to an HP policy, I can no longer link more than once to mmosite. Hence, please simply look for these guides on mmosite on your own.

  • Elodie's lv50 Sniper Party Build (PVE oriented)
  • JaredGYC's Sniper Guide
  • Xian's Sniper Guide
  • v2seraph's PvE Sniper

Check out this video of a Sniper doing Manticore Nest. Charge shot EX is really cool.
