Dragon Nest Archer and Acrobat Skill Build Guide

Dragon Nest Archer and Kick Acrobat Skill Build Guide by Misuki

I’ve attempted to make a skill build according to the NA Dragon Nest. Please leave any opinions on changes toward skills. Also, I’m separating the Lv1-15 apart from the Lv15-cap (Archer & Acrobat) for future (if any) confusion.

2nd Update! North American Translations added. Also note, please stop complaining for those of you who ask/say, “THE LEVEL CAP IS 24! I CAN’T FOLLOW THIS BUILD!” O.F.C. The level cap for OBT and Full Release is 24 until FURTHER NOTICE. Patience is a virtue. 

3rd Update! Proofreaded and included skill simulators and trees with new notes! Also removed minor errors.

Note: Pictures are not updated yet

Lv1: None
Lv2: None
Lv3: 1 Willow Kick
Lv4: 1 Piercing Shot, 1 Moonsault Kick
Lv5: 1 Pin Wheel, 1 Multi Shot
Lv6: 1 Somersault Kick
Lv7: None
Lv8: 1 Multi Shot
Lv9: 1 Willow Kick
Lv10: 1 Tumble, 1 Power Tumble
Lv11: 1 Multi Shot
Lv12: 1 Willow Kick, 1 Wisdom of the Owl (Your choice to get this skill. I find it very useful for that extra “boost”.)
Lv13: None
Lv14: 1 Multi Shot
Lv15: 1 Willow Kick (Optional, read the note in results)

Lv2 Piercing Shot
Lv4 Multi Shot
Lv5 Willow Kick
Lv2 Tumble
Lv1 Everything else that you have either already had or put 1 into.

It’s your own choice if you want to get Wisdom of the Owl. (which is probably useful for your play style.) Also, from Lv15-Cap Archer SKill Table, you will only be raising Multi Shot (to 8 max for Ring Shot) and Willow Kick (to 9 if you need it for extra damage purposes). I would leave it at 4, if all you need is the Acrobat Skill pre-requisites.

Congrats! You’ve made it to Lv15 and are able to do the Job Advancement and pick between Bow Masters or Acrobats. Have fun doing those fancy spin kicks and Chun Li styled energy blasts!

Congratulations again! You’ve made it to Lv40! Now you have to wait until they release the Lv50 Cap to NADN to reach the next almighty Tempest Job. (Or Wind Walker) I know very little of this job, so will update accordingly.

Here’s a little video for you all to see the awesomeness! Enjoy!

    Seeing that this guide was made on this date somehow I doubt its outdated…And this is a kick build..so I'll assume that Magic Shot isn't need/want for this build but if you must have it. Guess you'll have some leftover SP

    magic shot is far from useless.. I don't think this guides right. or atleast, outdated.

  16. Anonymous says:
