Shadow Hunter is a ranged damage dealer. What they lack in defense, they more that make up in the amount of damage they can deal.
The Shadow Hunter is the ranged evolution of the Strider. He/she focuses on skills using the Crossbow and other important skills from the Strider class. Powerful pullers and DDs. Good AoE and self-buff skills.
Thunderbolt Arrow - Self-buff skill that causes additional crossbow damage as well as a slight chance to stun the target. This skill paired with Hunter Impact can cause a lot of damage.
Subtle Enmity - A skill that decreases caster's threat level from crossbow attacks.
Agile Style - Lowers caster's attack power, but increases movement speed and evasion. Great skill for when you need to scout ahead for your dungeon party. When used together with Quick Pace, you will be one of the quickest characters in the game.
Dusk Style - Increases caster's accuracy and attack speed, but maximum amount of HP is decreased. Good for when you’re in a party and you have a tank that can't keep threat.
Cry of Arrows - Increases caster's attack speed but immobilizes for the duration of the skill.
Burning Style- Increases Physical Attack and Critical rate, but lowers Evasion and Physical Defense
For offense, Dexterity is the main stat as it boosts ranged damage output (P.Atk for ranged weapons) and accuracy (P.Acc). For defense, Agility and/or Vitality can be used to boost evasion (Eva.) or physical defense (P.Def) and HP (MaxHP). Agility has the added effect of adding attack speed at a rate of 1/10 per point of agility, and increasing damage with ranged weapons slightly.
