Artelia's Sniper and Artillery Skill Builds
Just putting it here.
Note that these are PvP-oriented builds. If you like PvE these are sub-optimal.
2/1/1 for sniper tree.
2/1/1 for artillery tree.
NOTE: The free sp are there for you to choose whether to max (level 7) guiding shot or arrow shower.
If you have any questions, or (more importantly) if you would like to make constructive criticisms, please leave them here. I will attend to them all. If you don't give a crap about my opinions, then continue doing what you're so good at doing.
hey thanks putting the pvp build here,
i got some questions, so does that means that both artillery and sniper are good for pvp ?
and in your artillery build, i noticed that u increase long bow mastery
Does that mean artillery better using longbow rather than crossbow for pvp ?
To answer your first question, both are good in PvP (though I would give advantage to sniper due to charged shot EX), but that's cause BM was always decent in PvP (the hybrid build BM that is).

edit: here is in my opinion the biggest reason: range is extremely important in bowmaster mirror. A shorter ranged bowmaster will have a much much harder time than a bowmaster with longer range.
Forgot to add this in OP (too late now, can't edit post >_<), so will post it here:
Please take everything you see here with a grain of salt. I do not actually have a sniper or artillery myself so I cannot confirm whether these builds are most optimized (I quit playing before 3rd job came out). My knowledge of DN is mostly during T3 era, so I welcome all opinions that are different from mine so long as they're posted in a constructive manner.
Afterall, I could be (and often am) wrong.

So i revised my build, thanks to your pointers. Im fairly knew to DN. I played a little on KR DN but just till like lvl 17. I didnt realize what triangle shot was until i watched a video. Your right that skill, along with aerial evasion are very necessary. Thanks for your help as well.
Here is my revised build. Its set for lvl 40 since im guessing that will be the max lvl for NA DN for a while. http://db.mmosite.com/dn/t3_skill/bowmaster.php?qkRRMzYLYyaFPwV7UrhVy|104$250. I added to Owls Insight since that is a useful buff for damage. At lvl 1 iv noticed I crit maybe 50-60% of the time. So having a 300% increase at lvl 3 would be more then enough. As for twin shot, im not sure how much ill be using it so for now its at lvl 5 but I may decide to increase it later. From lvl 40+ Ill probably be adding to Guided Shot and Triangle Shot. Let me know what you think.
