Rank10 Hero/Marksman - advice required.

Postby Jakenreu » 18 December 2015, 15:19

Hey, need some advice with my Lads Got Talent Hero/Marksman who's just achieved Rank 10 and he has 20 skill points to spend.
He currently has just sniper shot and Eagle Eyes and a pair of Purple quality Pistols.

What would you spend those 20 skill points on - ideally ? ( ignoring stat requirements for now and gold cost ).

It's just to give me some idea of which directions/synergies to look for - he'll probably get squished by the next Chaos Spawn he meets anyway..

Well, there are skills that bypass ranged resistance and armor absortion which are always handy, hand shot is good too to minimize Impressive damage, I personally prefer a rifle on my marksmen to soften the enemy while they close in but pistols give a bit more of mobility so you might want to use pinning shot while running away and talking about that, Mordheim Knowledge is always a nice skill to have.

I've built mine with bows, using his natural passive to increase chances to land special shots as final blow. I must admit that Sniper shot usually seems useless to me, since I can do more reliable damage using:

Aim - 2 SP + 2 OP
Reload (free, passive lvl 2, obviously)
Aim - 2 SP + 2 OP
Reload (still free)
Basic shot - 2 OP
Reload 1 SP
Special Shot (usually Crippling shot).
Reload 2 SP

I also have Sniper shot and Head shot - they are generally used when I need my SP to reposition, not to Reload/Aim and stack passive.

Sharpshooter goes nice in this build, since I can have up to +12 % crit on special shot. Also need to be tested, but I believe it can go up to 16% after Overwatch stance.

Overall: Best ranged unit in Mordheim. I din't regret at all building it from Marksmen. Although I believe my build isn't optimal I'm still having fun with this guy. Also he's usually safe from injuries.

Will get completely destroyed, and dare I say 1 turned by a properly built Maiden of Sigmar (200% range resistance)...
Run away little archer :)
