Portal Knights – Ranger Build: The Technomancer

Portal Knights - Ranger Build The Technomancer

Want to play something different ? Let me introduce the TECHNOMANCER.
He’s a ranger skilled in evasion, gunfight, bombs and … leech ?

Introduction

First of all, this IS NOT a optimised build, it IS NOT meant to easily defeat any of the Hard Mode Bosses (it still can, thou). IT IS a build made for fun, and fun only ! That been said, let’s go into it.

I see everyone playing critical or multistrike theses days so why not trying something else ?

And then comes the TECHNOMANCER
A Ranger skilled in evasion, mecanical weapons, bombs and leech.

As you can see, you can play this guy two ways: the SCIENTIST or the NUKER.
Let’s take a deeper look.

Stats

Whatever you choose between scientist and nuker, you can play with a full DEX build to maximize damage.

I personaly like to have 22 CON (800 base HP) then I put everything else in DEX (for damage). But it’s up to you. Your game, your rules.

The Scientist

You know what is great with technology ? Everything !
Base on survivability, high chance of leech, evasion and mainly designed for crowd clearing.

Here’s the SCIENTIST !

Skill level 1 : Crossbow
Skill level 5 : Fading
Skill level 10 : Dodge Chance
Skill level 15 : Potion Mastery (duh !)
Skill level 20 : Dodger
Skill level 25 : Cheat Death
Skill level 30 : Combo Swing

Strange isn’t it ? Well …

– Crossbow is the main weapon of the Nuker, so you’ll already have one you will use, and nothing increase the gun damage so …
– Fading is more useful than Sentry Stance cause with the low range of guns you’ll be moving and dodging a lot, so Sentry won’t be active.
– Dodge chance fits the build perfectly.
– Dodger : As I said, you’ll be rolling a LOT, and more dodge chance is great for this build.
– Cheat Death : You think you can kill me ? Dude I have steampacks in my pocket !
– Combo swing : You may think that Survival Instinct fits better and you’re right, BUT it doesn’t increase the heal you get by crit (see below) or the one you leech … sigh.

Now for the gear

Portal Knights - Ranger Build: The Technomancer

For the non-french speaker, here’s the stuff :
Head : Plumderer’s Helm
Torso : Avenger Plate
Arms : Unbreakable Arms
Legs : Ceasless Champion Legs
Cloak : Winged Cloak
Ring : Life Binder Ring

Main Weapon : Mother of Pearl, Bombs
Secondary Weapon : Heartseeker (for more dodge and running speed), Titanium Crossbow.

HOW TO PLAY:

Dodge, shoot, dodge, shoot, more dodge, more shoot, MOOOOAAAAARRRR DODGE !!!
Don’t be afraid if your HP gets low, you have plenty of ways to heal yourself.

Don’t forget that your gun is a SHOTGUN ! So at close range, it will hit up to 5 enemies with one shot (means more chances to leech, or to crit)

The Nuker

You know what is also great with technology ? Blowing up things !
Base on survivability, leech, evasion and mainly designed for boss fight.

Here’s the NUKER !

Skill level 1 : Crossbow
Skill level 5 : Any
Skill level 10 : Dodge Chance
Skill level 15 : Potion Mastery (duh !)
Skill level 20 : Unstable
Skill level 25 : Sharp Shooter
Skill level 30 : Combo Swing

Still a bit strange …

– Crossbow : Your main weapon.
– Sentry Stance can be useful here, as bosses don’t move for a while once they’re down. I still prefer Fading, but it’s a matter of choice.
– Dodge chance still fits the build perfectly.
– Unstable : You’re a nuker, you blow up thing, right ?
– Sharp Shooter : Stay far from your own explosions, and gotta kill them all. #Nukemon.
– Combo swing : Crossbow+Plunderer’s Help+Ring of Divine Protection = Mu-mu-mu-multistrike !
