C9 Scout Skills Build Guide by HeartlessOne
Anti-close range, defensive traps makes it really hard to get close to a scout.
Excellent in team vs. team pvp, extreme good crowd control with aoe traps which provide protection for your teammate.
Excellent in pve; both solo and team, scouts have a skill that reduce enemy mag/phys def by 65% (level 50 cap)
Middle range domination.
Easy to start, traps are AI controlled.
Less lag affected, traps are AI controlled and not affected by delays.
Hard vs. long ranged classes, Scout lack long ranged attack and charge skills, which makes them very vulnerable vs. classes like Ranger, Elementalist and Illusionist. To win those classes you have to know how to get close.
Lack super armor skill & charge skill, this class is no doubt one of most squeezy character, without any super armor skill or charge skill you will need to know how to protect yourself and counter attack.
Limited potential, all traps are destroyable, and in end pvp with experienced players they know how to destroy your traps before getting to you. And then you will have no choice but rely on your ranged/melee skills which are weaker than everything else.
Lack grab skills, makes it harder to break guard.
Overall: Low potential, easy to play, excellent team support, good vs. melee, bad vs. ranged.

22. Evasive Maneuvers + Attack
PU: Retaliation, dodge. Useful as well, this skill also contain very short time of invincible frame, use this attack on charging targets flank will cause them to stop (Double usage; pressing A or D and left mouse, hold it and then immediately click S + left mouse, this move will allow you to dodge twice)
SU: Combo Starter, combo extent (Press S + left click and then press W at targets direction, quite useful when you don’t know or lack combo skill due cool down).

25. Aerial Trap
PU: Approach, escape. Press Shift + left or right mouse button will allow you to use Explosive/Freezing trap while in air, which will look like Assassins double jump, very useful.
Try to get moving speed as much as possible since scouts lacks speed.
You will suffer lack of mp in PVP, I suggest you to put some point at max MP.
Phase 1 – Starters.
Learn to use your traps in a correct way.
– Do not spam all the traps at the same time, unless enemy using super armor buffs (Guardian/Taoist).
– Do not place traps at the same location, the best would be 10m between each trap.
– Learn to use traps while in air, use them to get close or escape.
– Remember all your traps cool down; be sure that you always have at least 1 trap you can use and at least 1 trap on the field.
Learn to aim, even though you are not a ranger.
– Multi shot ; splash aoe, useful to stop running enemy. Use it while your traps targeted enemy, this skill will stop enemy from dodging your traps.
– Bomber shot ; 3×3 aoe impact, useful to break enemy guard.
– Speedy aim ; fastest arrow skill you have, use it to lock your enemy and cause extra impact.
– Normal shots; use them to lock enemy.
Phase 2 – Average Players.
Physical combo & Approach.
You pbly noticed that you cannot longer rely on your traps since enemy knows how to dodge them; you will have to learn about physical combo and how to get close to your target.
There are basically 5 skills for basic melee combo, Grab Throw, Pumpkin Bomber,Buster Impact , eagle kick, Kneel press.
Best skills to approach enemy are Pumpkin Bomber +eagle kick combo and Multi-shot + speed aim +shatter kick combo.
By the amount of time you learn your enemy’s weakness. You will be able to break enemy charges, dodge and counter attack.
Crouch ; you can dodge 90% of skills if you use it right.
Buster Impact ; Use the invincible effect to dodge all incoming attacks.
Turn Slash ; counter charging enemy.
Correct usage of this skill will provide you invincible frames which you can use to avoid or break enemy skills.
– Can be used to break/avoid almost every fighter skills if used in right time. Exceptions: Back End Upper, Counter stance.
– Taoist; cannot break/avoid Dark Emotion and Electric Swing.
– Ranger; cannot break/avoid Arrow Rain.
– Elementalist; cannot break/avoid ground casted skill, such as meteor, lighting strike.
– Assassin; cannot break/avoid Shadow Bomber, Q+Halfmoon kick.
– Scout; cannot break/avoid every traps.
Grab Throw, Turn slash and arrow break guard works for all hunter classes.
Phase 3 – Advance (incomplete).
Combine traps and physical combos.
In order to maximal traps effect you will have to combine them with physical attacks.
Secret move 1: Long distance push.
Busting Touch + Press F (falls immediately on the ground with eagle kick) + W-F (Shatter kick) + Charge arrow (right mouse) + Finish with bomber shot for extra distance.
This combo is very useful when you want to knock your enemy into water.
There’s no such thing as no brain class, no brain traps only works against no brain player. – HeartlessOther C9 Continent of the Ninth Seal Articles
