Hello, I am returning to sro and I was wondering what the difference between spear nuker and s/s nuker are and if a bow nuker is worth creating. Also, shoud i go full into or a hybrid build like 7:1 or something of the sort. Lastly, if you could let me know what skills to get based on the build you think is best, i would greatly appreciate it.

thank you very much

Spear nuker for high damage, sword nuker is pointless, bow nuke is good till lvl 40 or so then you shuld switch skills for a hybrid heuksal nuker.

I disagree...

- Damage of s/s and bow are about the same; spear is about 10% higher.
- Protection of s/s is better, with shield block, extra defence and an extra item to put int/str/etc. on.
- Skills of s/s are very nice, with great status effects. Unfortunately, if you're facing a cleric, none of them will get through.
- s/s gets knock down/stab.
- Spear and bow get knock back, with KB from a bow being very effective.

For s/s or spear, I'd probably go full int these days.
For bow, many builds could work. Full STR is most common, but would nuke quite poorly. Same goes for the 70/70 builds. Full INT may be a tad too vulnerable, though that KB works wonders (but then you're not nuking).

It's basically up to your playing style: turtle, glass-cannon or sniper. :)

Nuker bow is useless in my opinion... Nuking with a bow is a limit to potential when you could be nuking with a spear...(A bow's magical attack power is not as a high as a spear's).. Only benefit a Bow Nuker gets is distance which isn't that much.....At best a Bow Nuker is a fun build for PVE...and it should be an ice Nuker too where you increase the chance of not having the mob on you..

sooo.
the bow skill that increases distance of attack actually works with nukes too?

Bow nukers aren't worth the hassle. They hit low and die just as quickly making them near useless.
