    Yul Ghost Sentinel Guide
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Ghost Sentinel as a ultimate archer?!
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------​

    [​IMG]

    Ghost Sentinel is well known as a very universal character to a PvE and PvP because of his Passive skill.
    That gives chaos essence to change from Moonlight Sentinel to Ghost Sentinel

    - Dark Elf Is a character with very high STR stat that means is very powerful on skills.
    - Elf is a character that can keep two old skills from 2nd and 3rd class with gives perma boost for attack speed.
    And gives a high DEX value. Rapid Fire and Rapid Shot

    So we need to choose between Skill Power DMG or Attack Speed and Skill Critical Rate.

    I personally playing an White Elf Ghost Sentinel and im highly focused for DEX stat. And also i will do guide right for my setup. I hope you like it even if it not so popular as full STR :)

    What i wanted to achieve at my Yul is a very high DEX and pretty good STR combination.
    I was watching and speaking with many players that played or still playing at Yul class.
    From all sources where i get information best stats for Yul are 130STR/80DEX and this is pretty enought to keep good skill damage and skill critical rate. That was not enought for me. As i check every possible item that can give stats i rebuild my yul to get 131STR/102DEX!

    [​IMG]
    I was dealing with numbers checking where i can add or from where to take some stats.
    This is how DEX/STR distribution from items looks like.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dual Class / Dual Class Skills
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------​


    What Dual Class should i choose?
    So after we have our main class, its time to make a another taff decision.
    I always say, Your Dual Class should be a class that you gonna enjoy to play.
    But many people looking also at other thing with is economy. To use the same Epics and the same Set as your main class.
    So what will be good for Yul Dual Class?
    Summoners, Daggers, Tyrrs, Iss

    Dual Class Skills:
    When our Dual Class reach 99 level and our Sub Classes are at 80 level we can take (i know we can do that before but better do something to the End and then take reward :) ) Sub Class and Dual Class Certificates.

    Dual/Sub Class Certs (Tanky)
    Dual Class
    4x P.Atk/M.Atk Increase
    4x P.Def/M.Def Increase
    4x P. Evasion/M. Evasion (We take it mostly for M.Evasion since Feoh are pain in butt it alwasy chance to avoid some attacks.

    Dual/Sub Class Certs (DPS)
    Dual Class
    1x Dual – Max HP Increase
    1x Dual – Master Rage

    Sub Class
    4x P.Atk/M.Atk Increase
    4x P.Def/M.Def Increase
    4x Atk.Spd/Casting Spd. Increase

    Dual/Sub Class Certs (Olympiad)
    Dual Class
    1x Mental Triat
    1x Psyhicaal Triat

    Sub Class
    Just dont change. Stay on what you got.



    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Leveling
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------​

    We have define our Main and DualClass... But we cant end our game at choosing classes.
    We have to exp, exp and one more time exp!

    So how and where exp as Yul you can ask.
    Well honestly, as Yul we will have pretty hard experience as solo exping. More eazy is in party.

    In order to keep old skills:
    Rapid Fire Be carefull do not buy Minds Eye
    Raapid Shot Be carefull do not buy Quick Fire

    We need to start character from level 1 and do not take Bathus quests series.

    1-84
    Keep on quest serier for newbies
    Use Fortune pocket for fast leveling, stage 3 is the best
    Kill Raid bosses at open fields.

    85-105
    Solo Instances
    Kartia Labirynt 85 90 95

    Solo Spots
    Fairy Sattlement
    You should stay there to 92, later there is no point to exp solo, all the time is better to go with some party.

    Party Instances
    Fortuna 90+ (make it one time for quest to get extra money)
    Spicula 93+
    Tauti 97+
    Baylor 97+
    Balok 97+
    Octavis 95+
    Crystal Caverns 97+
    Tavern 99+
    Nightmare Kamaloka 99+
    Gludio Instance 99+

    Party Spots
    Atelia Fortress
    Superion Fortress
    Garden of Spirits
    Elven Village



    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Ability Points (105 lvl = 21 points)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------​

    While exping and getting bigger aand bigger level our time and sacrifice are rewarded by Ability Points system. Each level grands us 1 Ability Point that we can spend to make our character stronger.
    AP for PvE/PvP/Olympiad

    [​IMG]
    AP for Tanky Yul(Can be also used at Olympiad)
    [​IMG]

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Set
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Ok so we know how and where to exp, we know what we should put our AP. But Damn! What i need to do that awesome stuff?!

    Answer is pretty clear! You need a proper armor!

    Since we have Ultimated / Transtended , sets that are good for PvP and PvE at once:
    What is good to have on your Yul?
    Obvious Leather set, Enchanted Type for +3STR and +6% Skill P.Atk
    Enchat Set should be 8 or +10, you can buy +6 but at that moment sets are pretty cheap and should collect adena for +8 minimum.
    Until we will have money and mats to make our set pvp or pve we can use Blessed Set, its good enought to farm everywhere in party or even in some solo spots.

    Is this worth to do Ultimated/Transented Set?
    In my opinion yes.
    You will never know when yuor game style will change. One day you can woke up and think " i wish to get a new experience in my lovly game and start pvp from today" and you are ready to go!

    In my opinion its good to make ultimated Stage 2. Stage 1 is obvious for additional PVE or PVP opton. But level 2 is relativly cheap and fives 1% p.atk and some P.Def. And one of best thing about this is – its not random chance success!!

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Jewelery Augments

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [​IMG]

    In general what we are looking for is Augmenty statistic +1 STR/DEX (if we dont want to risc we can stay at con also)
    Stun/Paralize/Arial Yoke/Mental Rezistance.
    Atribute rezistance (only +30)
    There are 3 diffrence stones to enchant our Jewelery
    Rare Accessory Spirit stone
    Arias Life Stone
    Accessory Spirit STone (Normal/Medium/High/Top-Grade)

    According to L2wiki there is some usefull augments. But last some days i did some and get augments option that i didn't see at l2wiki. I was useing Rare Accesory Spirit stone
    Honestly im not sure if Augmentations between Arias Life Stone and Rare Accessory Spirit stone giving diffrent Augmentations. Aria has been repleaced by Rare Spirit stone (at least by l2 wiki) from Raid bosses and you can buy it from Black Cat NPC in Hunters Village.
    So lets keep at general things good for yul.
    Stun rezistance, Statistics. If you lack of some Atribute defense you can aim for it.
    Also i got some 203 pDef and even 203 m.Def.
    We need to renember these numbers are fixed > that means its not multiple by bufs or pasive skills. Its just 200. No more no less.






    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Weapon

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Noone will take you if you will hit with your naked hands stranger! You need a proper weapon to be usefull in party.
    What is recomended for yul? Bow or Crossbow. As my build required is Bow because of skills that we keep at the start of our adventure.

    PvE
    Bloody Helios thrower +10+

    PvP
    Dark Helios Thrower +10+
    or cheaper option is Kelbim Bow (later posibility to upgrade to Insane Kelbim Bow which is very good for PvP, i would say its even same good as Dark Helios Thrower +7/8)



    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Weapon Augmentation

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Main Weapon Augments
    It is all about Luck but here are best augments for yul
    Best Augment is +15% Skill Critical Damage
    (Look out for +15% Critical Damage – This is not effective on yul archer since Archer do not use auto attack)
    Also good Augments that you can keep until you will not have some amount of spirit stones:
    +70 Atribute Damage
    +10% PvP/PvE Damage

    Secondary Weapon Augments
    Aditional Augments
    [​IMG] Giant Road - +10% HP/CP – For PvE and PvP
    [​IMG] Giant Critical Weakness – for 10sec critical dmg +90, Always good to have

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Buff

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [​IMG]

    PvE
    Basic Buffs:
    Melodies
    Sonatas
    Immune

    Harmony:
    Crier - Combination of P.Atk and Cooldown reduction. While yul is about spam skills Cooldown reduction is highly reccommended for this class.
    Warrior - Warrior Harmony lv.2 I dont think this is good harmony for yul, it is best harmony for tyrrs daggers and wyns for sure. But this harmny can make its work at Macro farming with Atuo Attacking or on Rbs where we can sneaky spam a bit AutoAttacks while afk but shhhhhh :)

    Additional bufs:
    Chant of Bison - On PvE PoM is not neccesery skill. You will do fine with cryer at your back. 15% Patk and 5% skill damage is enough to be very effective in party or even solo.

    PvP
    Basic Buffs:
    Melodies
    Sonatas
    Immune

    Harmony:
    Crier - I think is best Harmony for Yul. Combines high P.Attack value with 20% Cooldown Reduction and M.Def.
    Wizard - Wizard Harmony lv.2 This Harmony is very good at Mass PvP where are many Feohs, Your M.Def will gighly increase with this Harmony and you are still on Cooldown reduction on skills.

    Additional bufs:
    PoW - Buff using as a Drum Melody. It provides more HP, but you loose a CC trigger which is bad against dagger and lose -50% p.Critical Recived. Anyway i always prefear PoW at pvp Than drum, 20% HP more also making a job.
    PoM - Yul without PoM is like fish without water. If your party going for PvP and you dont have PoM, You or your party should have additional box with PoM for you!

    Item and Selfbufs:
    Stew - As we are DEX build we need use STR Stew to make over 130 STR.
    Rose - Increasing your stats
    Rapid Fire - Buff that is our main build buff, use it on Cooldown it gives 20% Attack Speed. Do not care about adnotation its decreaasing distance of shooting by 50%, it is only for Auto Attacks, its not working on skills. Skills still can be shooted from a horizont :)
    Rapid Shot - Another main build buff. Gives 12% A.Speed for 20min. So it is also permanently increasing our Attack Speed.
    Hawk Eye - Our Class Buff increasing skill power by 10%. You can use it with one of tree archer stances
    Fire Stance Skill Cooldown 10%, very good at PvE and small fast PvP, Or use it before you pop Counter Instinct to reduce cooldown and back to other stance.
    Dead Eye Stance- Another skill increasing our skill power by 10%. Good on Mass PvP to make high damage as possible.
    Counter Instinct - I like to call it Ultra Instinct (Who watched DBS will understand :) ) Incredible boost to our damage even on PvP or PvE. if we want to end PvP fast by destroying our enemys, we need to use it and smash them.



    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Macros

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Eveyone knows thaat farming 3h non stop is pain in our sits. Even most hardcore players sometime need to go pee!!
    Then on help comes in game macros I use 3 diffrent Macros for farm.

    This is macro when we hitting Raid boss or any mobs is taff and will take some time to kill it like dragosn etc

    [​IMG]
    This macro is when we are farming Aoe spots like Atelia or Superion

    Nice guide. If you do not own a dragon weapon, then Wizard's Harmony - Level 2 is a much better option than Warrior's harmony - any level (CDR), or Crier's Harmony. Why? Warrior's harmony - 25% P.Atk - of which 30%, so 7.5% is added to Skill Power. On Crier's Harmony story is the same, only it gives 22% P.Atk. so even lesser bonus. In case of flat 100 attribute though, its 100 AP so 10% increase in damage. The only reason's I'd take Crier's Harmony is when I don't cap 1500 AS, or I use a Dragon Weapon and my Attack Attribute outscales enemies by 250 anyway, then Wizard Lvl.2 gives 0 damage bonus, and Crier is indeed better.

    CC trigger only gives Autoattack and Dagger Blow damage, it does not give any protection. As we have tested numerous times Critical Damage Received only reduces autoattack damage, and it SHOULD reduce Dagger Blows but it doesn't. An experiment to clear that up would be much appreciated. POW is way to go.

    Then, for the next update with pure bs aoe resets, Atk.Spd. is the way to go, Crier Harmony it is.

    Attack speed always was one of the best as archer. When QF used to be 200% it was complete ridiculous, but it wasn't 100% of the time. When ppl started to save RF and RS and saw how an elf with "capped" attack speed and good crit rate could be a monster, many ppl did it. Now it's not that much, since with proper setup and gear you can keep QF up.

    I was creating some parts of Guide, tomorrow at evning i will add. today im tired.
    I will also do Augments on Jewels as you wish :)
    Palkah: About attack speed. Thats correct cap is 1500 but for Auto Attack. We need to renember that all stats visible in statistic are on atuoattack
    Best example is to buff yul to get 1500 a.speed and make some skills. And then make rapso (2x attack speed) and to the same skills. You will cast if faster. Maybe not twice times faster but still faster :)

    Nop it's as SnowyZ said, real attack speed cap is 2k. The reason you think it applies to autoattack is because of the bow 'reuse' which was displayed on earlier updates as a small bar above your head after each shot, and now is not displayed at all, but is still there. Very slow bows had shorter reuse, Slow had longer reuse, thats why autoattacks are indeed slower, because every bow has this cooldown.

    I know about this bar above of head. Well i didnt know cap AS for skills. But for i was refering to a autoattack.
    1500 AS cap is for AutoAttack. I knew for skill is bigger cap, didnt know what exactly in numbers.

    Cool stuff, but what about your elemental choices on your set? Seems like the inferior choices.

    I think this is individual.
    Mostly rezistances are random against enemy weapon element. As for PvE its also do not matter much because getting 300+ is enought.

    But anyway there is screenshots showing my stats, you can check there what elements i have :)

    Hey ppl.
    U should know this - stun skill is landing even on evading.
    bomb+mass bullz too.
    With similar gear, white elf hit few times, takes 1/3hp, getting 1 bomb from dark elf and die.
    Regards,
    Boyka

    Hey

    No, its not :) go make some test. You have 50% chances to make dmg/ debuf-depends of your stun increase rate vs stun rezist opponent.
    Is that a surprise for you ?
    maybe you dont know but skill dmg is the same for eveyone. diffrence is P.atk. But still dmg diffrence at Bomb would be minimal.

    Sorry, my mistake about stuns.
    I mean, stun do damage if it land, ignoring evasion.
    And about talks some posts up.
    Cast Spd statistic is affecing on time of skill casting. I did checked it with one friend Saggi.
    We both had 1500 atk spd, but there was difference in cast spd and u can easy recognize.
    And this is one more mighty sh**:
    skills clicked by mouse seems to be faster than skills used from keyboard
