[BUILD/GUIDE] Cra Fire Earth Comprehensive Guide & Review

By healermaster - MEMBER - July 27, 2016, 08:11:38

Just read the new update (or should i say nerfs?) on Cra. 
So alright, finally this guide is NO LONGER relevant. At all.

I can't believe a fairly balanced class is being thrown off the cliff just like that. 

Non-Line of sight spell is very important, dear Ankama. 

Now Cra has to fight closer and oh dear, the mobility tools all still remain expensive. Better yet, Roly Poly doesn't give 2MP anymore, aka nerfed. Damage still remains decent and not compensated. 
Thanks, Ankama, for having brought up this class to at least a decent level at some point only to have it nerfed back to its old state. You've just assassinated this class, again.

Please come up with a new actual Archer class next year ok.


Okay here it is.

My nine-page Cra Fire/Earth Comprehensive Guide & Review (click on it).

And I lied, the direct links in the Table of Contents somehow didn't work after I uploaded it rofl. So, Happy scrolling!

Target Audience:
Any Cra players of any levels who already at least understand the basics of each spell & passive.
I don't like describing, and I think Cra has pretty straightforward spells & passives. What I do instead is giving insights/reviews for some of them.

However, if you're totally new and want to read the basics before you read my crazy advanced guide, please check out Kavulu's Guide to the Cra.

Included in My Fire Earth Build / Guide:
Introduction (Objectives)
Characteristics
Spells & Passives
End-game Gears: PVE and PVP (up to 4 gear sets) – as of 1.46 Patch
Decks & Spells Insights
In-Depth FAQs

Sneak peek:
Since I'm not posting my guide here directly, I might as well provide sneak peek as to what you could expect after clicking the link to my guide (in PDF). For example, I shared how to achieve my initiative-freak build & gear sets, the following image is the preview of its stats:



So, if you'd like to know more, do check out my guide.

Enjoy!

DP set is perfect for your current level.
Afterwards you might want to start investing in Harry Boots/Dark Vlad epa for 12AP relic. You can easily get Bagus Shushu for epic too (from quest).

Author's Update:
This guide was created before build manager was implemented, aka when we were stuck with just 1 build and this guide was clearly focused on achieving a good balance between PvE and PvP with only 1 single build. If you're not (yet) keen to invest in many equipment sets for several builds, this guide is still relevant because, as you already know, my build worked like charm for both PvE and PvP and it still does.

No.

However the only thing irrelevant is the outdated equipment sets.

first put as many points as you can in distance mastery, then put the rest in elemental mastery.

I try searching for this for some helpful tips to maximize my Cra... It turns out I didn't need any help... But this is very useful though... I'm just at lvl 86 now and I'll try following the stat distribution on this. My only problem is with this one skill.

I'm having second thoughts on whether or not I should keep retreating arrow. I think I'd be better off with veracious arrow instead (Is that the right spelling?) to maximize the effect of flamboyant. Because, as of right now, I get nothing out of it!

Many fights such as Hagen Daaz and Steel Beak require collision damage, which the fire push doesn't currently do. So you still need it pretty often.

It's sad to see Cra being nerfed too much.
Roly Poly is too expensive for very little in return, no more helping new players in PVE with dungeon runs (2x explosive arrow).
I've really noticed how much my Cra is now relying on others to keep their distance from mobs (It ain't pretty seeing a lvl 200 Cra having to be carried by 5 other lvl 180-190 classes).
I'm not saying Cra is worthless at this point but there's very little reason for me to pick other classes over it at this point (fogger as an example).

I hope there will be adjustments in the near future for this class as i'm very fond of this class, i still remember the days where i had to stack 100 riddling stacks with lashing and riddling arrow to deal a good bit of damage on destructive haha.
Would love to see spells have different effects in PVE and PVP as the -30% healing for biting blow does absolutely nothing for me (I only do PVE as you can tell).
